13 PS4 classics that are cheaper than you thought this weekend on PlayStation Store

Get your hands on some of the generation’s biggest games at up to 60% off

The Summer Sale is well and truly underway and while you’ve probably already heard about some of the more recent big-name releases getting considerable discounts, such as Horizon Zero Dawn, WipEout Omega Collection and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, there’s a whole bunch of awesome titles from earlier in the generation that are going for an absolute song.

So, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourites for your consideration – read on, and let us know what you’ve picked up in this round of discounts.

1. Bloodborne

One of the most highly-rated games this generation, Bloodborne also has a bit of a reputation for being the one of the hardest. Truth be told, it’s not difficult, it just does things a little differently. Take Bloodborne on its own terms and you’re in for a rip-roaring ride of gruesome design, brutal combat and deeply-rewarding exploration – I can’t recommend it enough.

2. Batman: Arkham Knight – Premium Edition

Hands up, who wants a go in the Batmobile? Everybody, right? Well, now’s your chance – not just that, but you can also glide across the Arkham City skyline, beat up local goons and go toe-to-toe with a cadre of Batman’s worse villains. Bag the Premium Edition and you’ll also get a stack of downloadable extras including additional skins and levels.

3. Mirror’s Edge Catalyst

Parkour always looks cool in motion, but the sad reality of is that most of us have neither the courage nor the core-body strength to go leaping around on local high-rises. Thankfully, there’s an alternative: pick up Mirror’s Edge Catalyst this weekend and not only will you get to live the life of a parkour master, but you’ll also get to beat up some baddies and bring down an evil futurist corporation. Who needs deltoids, eh?

4. Star Wars Battlefront – Ultimate Edition

Lightsabers at the ready, it’s time to tear off that cool, adult exterior and indulge your inner nerd. Best of all, you no longer need to chase your siblings around the house hollering ‘vvwom, vwom, vvwom!” as you swing a broom handle at them. Thanks to the lovely chaps at DICE, you can jump into the boots of your favourite Star Wars hero and be doing battle in a galaxy far, far away in a matter of moments (and you can still do your own sound effects if you like).

5. Mortal Kombat XL

If you need to blow off a little steam this weekend, then there a few places more suitable than the Mortal Kombat arena. Why not get together with some friends and take it in turns to beat the stuffing out of one another in the grizzly arenas of Outworld – it’s just the sort of cheeky banter that brings people together, except there are more fatalities. Grab the XL edition and you can even play as Jason Voorhees or The Predator!

6. inFAMOUS Second Son – Legendary Edition

You remember playing super heroes at school and there was always that one kid who decided they had every power? Well, now you can be that kid. In inFAMOUS: Second Son you play as Delsin Rowe, a super human whose special ability is nicking other super humans’ powers. That means you can tear through the streets of Seattle surfing a concrete riptide, raining fireballs down on your opponents and shooting neon projectiles from you finger tips. Just remember: with great power, etc. etc.

7. Dragon Age: Inquisition – Deluxe Edition

A little weekend getaway doesn’t get any more escapist than becoming the grand inquisitor in a faraway fantasy realm peopled by mages, elves and hairy-chested dwarves. If you feel like something a little more laid-back then you could do worse than the lush pastoral climbs and slumbering midnight deserts of Thedas.

8. Ratchet and Clank

An eye-popping recreation of the PS2 original, Ratchet and Clank on PS4 was one of the sleeper hits of last year, bowling over fans and critics alike. If you’ve ever wondered what the hell a Lombax is or why on Earth you should care, it’s never been less costly to find out! Moreover, you’ll get to play with an array of ridiculous guns like The Sheepinator, The Pixelizer and the Groovitron.

9. Rise of the Tomb Raider – 20 Year Celebration

Gaming’s legendary it-girl Lara Croft popped back to the PS4 last year for another grand adventure filled to the brim with ancient history, corporate villainy and, of course, a little casual grave-robbing. If you’re a PS4 Pro owner, Rise of the Tomb Raider Anniversary Edition also comes with a whole batch of extra graphical options that deliver one of the best-looking console games ever – who wouldn’t want to see that?

10. Project CARS

If you’re not one for big guns and silly fun, then why not try taking a sports car for a spin this weekend? Slighty Mad Studio’s crowd-funded racing sim delivers dozens of real-life tracks and hundreds of high-performance cars direct to your living room. All you need to is strap in and get your career on the road. Okay, I’ll stop with the puns now: it’s a great racing sim with bags of content. Like driving? Get it.

11. The Last Guardian

Last year Fumito Ueda’s long-awaited third game finally arrived on PlayStation 4. After almost a decade in development, it was the game that almost didn’t happen. But when it eventually did, it reminded us why Ueda-san is such a respected figure in the industry. Beautiful, poignant and aesthetically wondrous, it’s a game possessing a rare magical quality.

12. Doom

The big daddy of first-person shooters got a fresh new lick of paint last year. Transporting the familiar story of a Martian moon over-run with demons and hell-spawn into 2017, it brought with it lashings of new weapons, upgrades and super-brutal animated take downs. There’s also a chainsaw – in fact, that bears repeating: you get a chainsaw.

13. The Evil Within

With the release of The Evil Within 2 just around corner, there’s never been a better time to get acquainted with horror legend Shinji Mikami’s latest series. Following the mind-bending story of a down-on-his-luck cop drawn into a nightmarish altered reality, The Evil Within has all the lurid tension and stomach-churning design work you’d expect from the man behind Resident Evil and Devil May Cry.

This is just a taste of the huge range of great games discounted this weekend in the Summer Sale. As well as the above, you can also pick up the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, Hitman, Gravity Rush 2, Nioh, The Last of Us Remastered, Call of Duty Infinite Warfare and Mass Effect Andromeda with discounts of up to 60%*.

Head on over to PlayStation Store now for a full list of discounts and regional pricing.

Link to The Last Guardian is wrong ;)

1.1

Cause this game is still in devel… Oh, sorry. Bad habit…

Can’t wait for this summer sale to end. Looking at the same generic choices for weeks on end and no deal of the week to hope for something decent.

Which game are you hoping to see on discount?

Just something other than what’s already been done many times before. It lacks variety and games of intrigue. Personally I’d like Kingdom Hearts go on sale.

Bloodborne is the only digital purchase I’ve ever wanted to get my money back for. Absolutely hated it. It’s not that it’s hard, it just plays like crud. And even trying to get a co op game going is made ridiculously clumsy and annoying. Ain’t exactly pretty to look at either.

Arkham Knight was trash too. Who wants a go in the Batmobile? Not me after being forced to play it in this game. It came bundled with my original PS4 and I traded it in within two days and spent some of the credit on Infamous Second Son up there which I enjoyed a heck of a lot more.

90’s Doom still have a more of a satisfying feel and much more fun than nu-Doom too.

Might do a new playthrough of Ratchet & Clank.

Just git gud…

3.2

Aye, git gud.

3.3

Blimey, I bet Sony love you as a customer. 8-/

In order of personal rating, I highly recommend Arkham Knig PE, Doom, Infamous second son LE & Mortal Kombat XL.

Mirror’s edge is extremely niche (but good fun if you’re into it) & while Ratchet & Clank is amazing to look at, it just doesn’t match to the earlier games in the series.

Haven’t played any of the others, won’t be buying them soon.

Psn promotions included battlfield1 until 16/8/2017 at 29,99, i put the game on baskett and buy a 30€ paysafecard to by the game,but when i was to finish the buy the game was no longer at 29,99 but 69,99!?? What the hell of promototion was that sony retired the game from promotion that should be untill 16/8/2017 just because!?

I take it you didn’t read the sales post then. Here’s a quote: “Don’t forget, some games will only be on offer for a limited time, just visit the title on Store for details and don’t miss out!”

Each title that’s on sale states exactly how long it will be on sale for. Sony didn’t just remove the title from the sale out of nowhere. If you’re considering purchasing a game, and you aren’t going to buy it immediately, you should check the individual title to make sure you don’t miss out on the sale. Just a bit of friendly advice for the future

Psn needs better deals .Seriously the only game worth consideration is Last Guardian rest are mostly old as hell. And Please add Nier to the sale !!!

“mostly old as hell”.

I’d like to see a classic that isn’t

6.2

vote for Nier too :)

The Last Guardian is magnificent! And a bargain right now! :)

7.1

I think you need to try a few more games if you think that The Last Guardian is one of the greatest games on PS4. Sure, Trico is a great companion but the game is flawed and full of bugs and camera issues. Icon and Shadow of the Colossus are still head and shoulders above TLG.

I’ll be over here waiting patiently for Disgaea 5 to be slashed in price.

Oh look, it’s Infamous Call of Battlefield For Speed again.

Doesn’t something have to be 20 years old to be a “classic”?

BLOODBORNE, the greatest game of all time!

MiseryPrincess 06 August, 2017 @ 22:16
10.1

…if you’ve never played another Souls game, or Nioh

Hi guys

Sony and their definition of “classics”…

Now even trainwrecks like The Last Guardian get the title.

How can Tomb Raider still be this expensive? It’s a game from November 2015!

13.1

If release date is the only parameter then how can GTA V still be this expensive?

MiseryPrincess 07 August, 2017 @ 17:09
13.2

Probably because it’s still in the highest selling games list almost every single week somehow (you’d assume everyone has bought it by now, but apparently every week there’s a new batch turning 18 or something). So there’s basically no reason to reduce it’s price.

TR is also in the same charts right now, so the price seems to be working for them.

Color me unimpressed. That PS PLUS price increase does not make me want to throw any resources at the screen.
