It doesn’t matter if you ended up with a new PlayStation 4 over the holidays or are still getting the most out of your trusty PlayStation 3 — either way, this might be a great week to pick up something new. Sony is kicking off 2016 with its week-long PlayStation Essentials sale, offering up to 75 percent off games and movies. If you’re a PlayStation Plus member, you save up to 80 percent.
Looking at the PS4, Grand Theft Auto V is down to $45, while if you want to take a look at the series’ history, Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas can be had for just over $10. Dragon Age: Inquisition Deluxe Edition is down to $18, while the console exclusive Infamous: Second Son and Infamous: First Light are down to $12 and $9, respectively.
Moving on to the PS3, the Call of Duty Black Ops & Black Ops II Bundle is on sale for $40, down from a retail price of $110. The Devil May Cry HD collection is on sale for $7.50, while DMC Devil May Cry can be had for $15. While not quite as visually impressive as the PS4 version, the PS3 version of Dragon Age: Inquisition Deluxe Edition is cheaper at $12.50.
The selection isn’t quite as broad for Vita owners, but there are some great games on sale. Persona 4: Golden is down to $12 from its usual $30, while OlliOlli is available as a 3-Way Cross-Buy for just $5.20. If you’d prefer to go old-school, a number of PSOne Classics including Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy Tactics, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and Xenogears are on sale for $4, with others like Suikoden selling for $1.50.
As for movies, the HD versions of Kingsman: The Secret Service and Interstellar are on sale for $10, while a number of films including Friday, Into The Storm, Jupiter Ascending, Gravity and Argo: Declassified Edition Extended can be had for $7.
The sale runs until Monday, January 18, and there is a whole lot more on sale than is mentioned here. For the full list of games, head over to the PlayStation Blog.
