When the PlayStation Store updates later today Sony will be adding two new titles to the PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection, and discounting select PS3 games — with all their included downloadable content — by up to 75% off for subscribers.
New to the PlayStation Plus free Instant Game Collection this week is Germinator (a match-three bubble genre puzzle game) for the PS Vita, and Pinball Arcade (which comes with the Tales of the Arabian Nights, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, Theatre of Magic, and Black Hole tables) for both the PS3 and PS Vita cross-buy enabled.
If those two Instant Game Collection titles are not exactly your cup of tea (and let’s be honest, they are most likely not), then perhaps you can take comfort in the fact that Sony is offering a huge selection of discounts this week for PlayStation Plus subscribers.
Topping the sale list this week is a 25% Plus discount for Metro: Last Light season pass (PSN Price: $14.99; PS Plus Price: $11.24), followed by a 30% Plus discount for Capcom’s Darkstalkers Resurrection and Super Puzzle Fighter II (PSN Price: $14.99; PS Plus Price: $10.49), and finally a 30% Plus sale on Men’s Room Mayhem for the PS Vita (PSN Price: $1.39; PS Plus Price: $0.97).
Sony is also updating the store with a huge Ultimate Deals sale, which will let PSN users get up to a 65% discount (75% for PlayStation Plus members) on full PS3 games and their respective DLC add-ons. The full list of titles included in the Ultimate Deals sale, and their associated PS Plus prices, are:
- Assassin’s Creed III – Ultimate Edition $62.99
