Star Wars “May the 4th” Sale on PlayStation this week

AT-AT

As if there wasn’t enough excellent Japanese games on sale this week over at the PlayStation Store, Sony is also celebrating “May the 4th” with heavy discounts on all things Star Wars.

Ahhh, Star Wars and Japan, the cornerstones of my geekdom.

Sadly though, this isn’t the sale you are looking for. PlayStation Blog points out that this is also celebrating the introduction of four Star Wars games into the PlayStation 2 Classics line-up, but the catch is Star Wars games from the PlayStation 2 era aren’t often known for their universal quality.

Battlefront and Battlefront 2 are great, but they are not here because their Sith overlords don’t want you playing them unless it’s the PSP versions. Either that or is it’s just because the servers are down. Instead, you get Revenge of the Sith, Starfighter, Bounty Hunter and Racer Revenge.

PSP Star Wars: The Force Unleashed PSP $3.50 $9.99

Hmmmm…

Well, you can pick up Star Wars: Dark Forces for a $1.50. This inoffensive DOOM clone is actually quite nice if you dig the level design of older first-person shooters. Zen Pinball 2: Star Wars Pinball also has a pretty solid following if you are just dying for an excuse to put some pinball on your PlayStation 3 or Vita.

EA also has a shiny link to its incoming mega-hit Star Wars: Battlefront, but don’t get too excited. It’s not available at a discount. Just a friendly reminder that you can buy the game before knowing it works.

All in all, this isn’t the best showing of Star Wars games around as most of the quality stuff is more PC oriented. I can’t recommend much else here.

Move along. Move along.
