PlayStation Store turns 10 and celebrates by slashing prices on select titles
Sony is celebrating 10 years of the PlayStation Store's online presence by throwing a two-week price hack on select games and videos. The sale spans the PS4, the PS3, and the PS Vita, with extra bargains for PS Plus members.

On Tuesday, PlayStation Network Senior Vice President Eric Lempel jumped on Sony’s PlayStation blog with news that the company has thrown open the doors to a two-week sale to celebrate 10 years of the PlayStation Store. The event covers games published for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and the PlayStation Vita handheld as well as digital video content. The discounted items offered this week will revert to their original pricing at 8 a.m. PT on November 15.

While Lempel lists the entire week’s batch of discounted games and videos in his post, we ripped the PlayStation 4 lineup and placed them in a handy table below. Note that PlayStation Store customers will receive an even larger discount if they subscribe to PlayStation Plus. That is essentially Sony’s way of forcing PlayStation 4 owners to pay for online multiplayer support, but with the added benefits of online game save storage and slashed prices.

Here is what PlayStation 4 owners can buy for cheap this week:

In looking at the current discounts on the older PlayStation 3 console, Sony is seemingly focusing on its library of PSOne and PlayStation 2 classics. There are only a few titles outside the “classics” lineup now on sale such as Fat Princess, Fez, Flow, Hotline Miami, Noby Noby Boy, the Prototype Franchise Bundle, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Gold Edition. Only six games for the Vita received a price reduction this week.

“It’s hard to believe this month marks 10 years since we launched PlayStation 3,” Lempel said. “PS3 was a landmark console for a host of reasons, one of them being the introduction of PlayStation Network and PlayStation Store. Thanks to your continued feedback and support, PlayStation Store has grown into the premier destination for gaming and entertainment content.”

Finally, PlayStation console owners who have PlayStation Store accounts 9.5 years or older will receive a free, exclusive PlayStation 4 avatar as part of the storefront’s 10-year anniversary celebration. Details regarding this avatar will be provided via email soon. Until then, customers can grab a free 10th Anniversary theme for the PlayStation 3 here, and the PlayStation 4 here.
