This week adds some spooky discounts to tempt you along with a couple of publisher sales. First, the EA sale is super weak if you don’t want versions of NHL 20 or Madden 20. That may be good news for the person who wants to buy those games, but there is nothing else from the publisher in this sale.
Ubisoft’s publisher sale is far more robust. These are the times to stock up on the overpriced DLC that you wanted but not at the MSRP. The games without DLC or deluxe (and grander) editions are also cheaper. Ubisoft gets a lot of crap for its open-world sprawling map games, but one of these can be a great deal when they are around the $20 mark in this sale. (Gamers on a budget, I hear you.) Speaking of, there are multiple Assassin’s Creed games, Watchdogs, South Park, and The Division 2 versions in the sale. Keep scrolling past the obvious games, and you’ll reach other Ubisoft titles, such as my pick, Jeopardy, for $7.99. Family time is coming for the holidays.
Lastly, the Halloween Sale aims to put a little scare in your gaming time, but it’s not all ghosts and goblins. We do have supernatural games in Darksiders III, Devil May Cry 5, Vampyr, A Plague Tale: Innocence, and Outlast. We also have action games like Resident Evil 2, Doom, Dead Rising, Tomb Raider, Bioshock, Hitman, and Call of Duty. If you hate scary games, don’t avoid this sale. It’s more than just the name suggests, and it runs through November 1.
You can check out all the sales on the PlayStation Store.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
