PlayStation Store PLAY 2013 puts Summer of Arcade 2013 to shame

From the article, "Wow. Microsoft better send up the white flag this summer, because Sony has got them beat. The PlayStation Store's PLAY 2013 sales promotion has just been announced and... yeah. Microsoft doesn't stand a chance. It's quite a wallop, which further showcases how Sony keeps scrambling to stay on consumers' good side, while Microsoft doesn't really seem to care.

Let's start with the games, because that's what proves the PlayStation Store is the place to go this summer."

Steam Summer Sale actually is the one that puts them both to shame.

Soldierone1746d ago (Edited 1746d ago )

Was going to say, both of them seem to suck compared to Steam.

(And no I'm not a PC gamer, its just obvious)

uncharted561746d ago (Edited 1746d ago )

Yup picked L4D2 for 4, Hitman Absolution for 6, Just Cause 2 for 3, Sleeping Dogs for 8 dollars and soon Deus Ex Human Revolution for less then five when it goes on sale. Might also pick up both biosocks for 10 bucks lol. Also forgot battlefield 3 for five bucks around e3. I never realized pc gaming was so good until I got my pc this year and started playing on it lol. Sad though I can't take it with me to university. Ps4 will have to do :D

TRGMatt1745d ago

@Uncharted56 below: Got 3 of those games for FREE on PS+ already :p

vigilante_man1745d ago

Already got the following of your list from PS+:
* Hitman Absolution
* Just Cause 2
* Sleeping Dogs
* Deus Ex. Human Revolution
* Battlefield 3
* Saints Row Third
* Demon Souls
* ICO/Shadow of The Colossus HD
* Many More...

& Vita Games:
* Rayman Origins
* Uncharted - Golden Abyss

* Gravity Rush
* MGS HD Collection
* Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus
* Unit 13
* etc.

Sorry, got carried away. Seriously - if you have a PS3 you NEED to get PS+. For value it beats all sales!

It's not the same at all, the ps3 version of these games look like the pc version in only 720p and low-mid settings

But dont worry you'll get to see what these games are meant to look like when you buy the full HD edition again on ps4

To be Fair PC games have always been cheaper then console games at the end of the day. I don't want to buy any of those for my PC i rather have then on my console i like my PC but to play League of Legends sometimes WoW, or like high end games like Crysis or Bioshock Infinite at times.

uncharted561746d ago

And thats cool. I buy most games now for my pc but games that I know I will play with my friend's, I will get on my console as those guys don't have a gaming pc. But it seems these game devs want to move away from the local mp aspect that was so popular in ps2 gen and really push online. Why cant they do both I mean I still remember playing timesplitters and wwf here comes the pain with my friends and it was tons of fun. This is the reason why I have primarly moved to pc gaming because devs have stopped treating consoles as consoles.

PS+ puts steam to shame .. discounts every month

uncharted561746d ago (Edited 1746d ago )

I like psn plus but nope Steam Sale everything is on sale including the new AAA titles.

Edit: I will sort of go back on my statement. With psn plus you get free games so its quite awesome but you don't necessarily get the AAA games on huge discounts which is the purpose of steam sale plus we are comparing which platform has better sales psn plus is a paying service for demos, free games and betas.

TwistingWords1746d ago

But you have to pay for said discount...

towelie12881746d ago

lol ur joking right?? calm down

Oschino19071746d ago

Almost every game you named from Steam that is cheap or on sale have at some point been included in the PS+ Instant Game Collection, some as far back as a year ago or more.

Not saying Steam is bad or not as good or better but PS has been getting better and better with digital downloads especially compared to other consoles. PS+ just takes it up a notch.

Also don't forget game sharing on PS, up to 2 consoles can have the game at a time and any account can play them. Great for anyone with 2 PS3s or a good friend to share with. I have 2 PS3s in one room so often if its a co-op or mainly multiplayer game I will be sure to get the digital download.

AceBlazer131746d ago

ps sad to say will never be on steam's level im not even a pc gamer.steam basically has an instant game collection with those free-to-play games they hav.think i'll build a gaming pc after i buy my ps4

uncharted561746d ago

First of all PS+ is a subscription service not a summer sale event which lead to this discussion. Steam has the best sales hands down. Me and my 3 friends can get a bundle paying each other for a game and we all will have access to it. Steam is a lot more easy to use to buy games, interact with friends and play games then psn or live.

kupomogli1745d ago (Edited 1745d ago )


Coincidentally all those games except for Hitman Absolution, L4D2(not on PS3,) and Bioshock 1 were only a few of the free games on PS+. You paid or will potentially pay $41. Paid $50 for PS+ and got so much more.

You get to keep the games you purchase on Steam, but the same could be said of PS+ if you have no plans of unsubscribing. You continue to keep access to all your games and you continue getting five free games per month.

Steam deals are good though. Torchlight 2 for $3.75. The Humble Bundle deals. GOG has better deals than Steam.

If you go by price and how many games you get? It goes Humble Bundle > PS+ > GOG > Steam > XBL > Nintendo eshop.

Anyone know when the Summer of Arcade games will release on PS3?

starchild1746d ago

And Steam puts them both to shame.

See, we can all act like fanboys.

mrmancs1746d ago

But he said he wasn't a PC gamer ....
Ps3 has the best graphics ever and the ps4 will be even better.. And I'm not even a PlayStation gamer....
Smell a rat? Lol.

supraking9511746d ago

well PS+ deals are every week

sashimi1746d ago (Edited 1746d ago )

Not to mention all the AAA games we've been getting and I noticed RE6 was actually cheaper on the psn+ spring sale than it is during the steam summer sale lol.
