If you’ve been keeping up with my weekly wrap-up posts, you know that I’ve recently gotten into Smite on PS4 in an attempt to battle my social anxiety. I’ve been playing around with the various freebies and rental gods over the last week or so, mostly enjoying Ra and Medusa, but man… Smite has a LOT of characters to pick from. A lot of characters that take a lot of time and a lot of in-game currency to buy.
With the busiest shopping day of the year steadily approaching, why not forgo the pushing and shoving and shop from the comfort of your own home? The folks at PlayStation have a pretty great sale going on, along with a coupon code for an additional 10% off your entire purchase.
A full list of discounts can be found here at the official PlayStation store.

Tuesdays not only bring with them the relief that it’s no longer Monday, but a new batch of discounts on Xbox and Playstation platforms.
Xbox One owners can save some cash on Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition ($15, which seems like a steal), but the rest is largely forgettable considering Need for Speed (along with Unravel) entered the EA Access Vault earlier this morning.
The 360 lineup is a bit more interesting, with a short list of SNK titles in the Samurai Shodown, King of Fighters, and Metal Slug series.
Side-note: I find it pretty fucking hilarious that the first image on the store page for Samurai Shodown II just shows the game’s loading screen. That’s not much of a selling point, folks.

On the Playstation side of the spectrum there’s a list of games that have already been on sale quite a few times over the last six or seven months, so while the lineup is solid, there’s little that hasn’t been offered at the same price (or lower) as of late.
Notable discounts include the iconic Journey (both PS3 and PS4), first-person narrative Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, the insanely addictive minimalist platformer N++, platforming rogue-lite Rogue Legacy, music platformer Sound Shapes, and puzzle platformer The Swapper.

From now until July 11th Xbox owners can choose from a laundry list of discounts during the annual Ultimate Game Sale.
It’s a meaty list, so I won’t go in to too much detail. Discounts include heavy hitters like The Division, Halo 5: Guardians, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunter, and more.
It’s worth noting that other games are on sale that aren’t on the list, like Killer Instinct’s season 1 + 2 combo for $15 instead of $40, and Batman: Arkham Knight for $15, so you may need to do some digging.

Picking anything up? I have a $10 credit, so I’m torn between the Mega Man Legacy Collection and Layers of Fear. I’d rather have Mega Man on 3DS, but $8 is a great price.
