August is when many return to school after a nice summer break, and it’s also the reason for a PlayStation Store sale for the next two weeks. The August Savings Sale will save you up to 80% on hundreds of games and add-ons. It makes sense to have a giant sale with no general focus, because the games range from PS VR and PS4 to PS3 and even the PS Vita.
What deals await you? Well, Yakuza 0 is only $11.99, and it’s a steal. The Persistence, Battlezone, and the sadly underappreciated Transpose are some of the PS VR games available. There’s racing, sci-fi, shooters, and even a healthy does of games from Japan. Ys VIII: Lacrymosa of Dana is $23.99, and I think that’s the lowest I’ve seen it so far.
I think we’ll see a Gamescom flash sale this weekend, but, no matter your gaming preference, I think you’ll find something to play for less. The August Savings Sale runs through September 3rd, and you can see all the games here.
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.
