All the Star Wars Sales for May the Fourth

Posted by | News, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One | No Comments

May the Fourth is affectionately known as Star Wars Day. It’s a celebration of the popular franchise, but also a chance for many gaming publishers and distributors to host thematic sales. If you’re missing any Star Wars games in your collection, now’s the chance to grab them. Here’s a list of all the big Star Wars sales.

PlayStation 4 has over 50 Star Wars games and DLC up to 75% off. Highlights includes Star Wars The Force Unleashed II for $4.99, Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition for $25.99, and a Star Wars Mega Bundle which includes a mix of Star Wars titles for PSP and PS Vita for $13.99. The PlayStation May the 4th sale ends on May 9.

Steam’s May The 4th Be With You sale is usually the most comprehensive Star Wars sale, and this year is no different. With a library of Star Wars games that stretches back to the early 90s, you can snatch up classics like TIE Fighter and Rebel Assault for $3.99 each. If you’ve been lax on your Star Wars games, check out the Star Wars Complete Collection bundle – 24 games for $60.68. The sale ends May 8.

If you prefer your PC games with no strings attached, check out GoG’s Star Wars sale. Each title is 75% off, and it includes mostly older games such as Star Wars Rebellion, Empire at War, and Knights of the Old Republic. The GoG sale ends May 11.

Xbox has the weakest Star Wars sale, and is overshadowed by a bigger Capcom sale running concurrently. You can get Star Wars Battlefront Ultimate Edition for $20.00 and the deal doesn’t require an Xbox Live Gold membership. The weekly Xbox sale ends May 8.

Need More PlayStation Games for Cheap?

Posted by and | News, PlayStation 4 | No Comments

PlayStation has a big holiday sale going on. This is its second week, and now there are some more games on sale. Here are the new deals:

  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD: $29.99
  • Galak-Z: The Dimensional: $13.99
  • Star Wars Battlefront: $40.19
  • The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited: $30.00
  • The Talos Principle (PS4): $25.00
  • Chariot (PS4): $7.50

Chariot is one of our favorite co-op games. It has a good, fanciful story and cute graphics that make it fun to play with kids.

There are also PS3 game deals; The Last of Us for PS3 has a nice discount attached. (You can also pick up the deluxe edition for PS4, though it’ll still run you $40 versus the PS3 edition’s $14.)

All of these prices are lower with a PlayStation Plus membership.
