PlayStation Summer Sale returns for the next two weeks

PlayStation Summer Sale featuring The Quarry

A lot of repeats, but there are some new deals

We’re well into summer, and that means scorching days, soothing Seals & Crofts, and lots of gaming deals. The PlayStation Store Summer Sale started today with over a thousand deals on PS4 and PS5 games lasting through Wednesday, August 3 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific.

The bulk of the sale is going to be older stuff, naturally — but a few newer releases stand out in the crowd. Supermassive Games’ cinematic horror romp The Quarry, Sloclap’s tense martial arts brawler Sifu, Saber Interactive’s team-based Evil Dead: The Game, and Team Ninja’s super eclectic Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin are worth a nod.

With an eye toward games with new low pricing, here are some recommendations.

PlayStation Store Summer Sale highlights

If you haven’t shopped in any digital PlayStation sales lately, you’ll find even more worth-checking-out games. I try not to do too many repeats from one sale to the next if I can help it. And while not everything here is a historically low price, they’re all competitive (as far as the PlayStation Store goes, at least). Hopefully enough to get you started!

Sony has a complete list of PlayStation Store Summer Sale deals over here on the PlayStation Blog, if you prefer to ctrl+f your way through text entries. The deals are set to last through August 3, at which point “new titles [will be] added to the promotion.”

With the usual mix of featured games and a lot of random backlog fodder calling my name in the PlayStation Plus Extra/Premium catalog, I’ll probably be sitting this one out. (Granted, I always say that, then impulse buy something at the last minute.)
