It's getting warmer outside! Green is budding up after an extraordinarly long and cold winter. In my half of the world, cherry blossom petals will be blooming soon and require an immediate picnic to occur beneath them. Spring is finally here, so what better way to celebrate than slamming yourself in front of a TV and playing some video games, just like you've been doing all winter?
Sony is bringing back its PlayStation Network Spring Fever Sale for another go around in 2014. I dropped quite a few pennies on the sale last year, but thankfully, this year is looking a little bit slower. I'm finding myself crumbling under the weight of an expanding backlog, and plus, I just want to go outside!
Much like last year, the sales will be split into two categories, individual indie titles and major savings on the biggest franchises on the market. Check out the schedule below.
First up is the individual games, and Sony is discounting two a week. All prices listed are for those who subscribe to PlayStation Plus
- March 3 – March 10: Awesomenauts Assemble (PS4) $7.99 and Master Reboot (PS3) for $11.99
- March 11 – March 17: Towerfall Ascension (PS4) $11.99 and Vessel (PS3) $7.99
- March 18 – March 24: SteamWorld Dig (PS4, PS Vita) $7.99 and Luftrausers (PS3, PS Vita) $7.99
- March 25 – March 31: FEZ (PS4, PS Vita) $9.99 and FEZ (PS3, PSVita) $9.99
Alongside the smaller titles are your favorite biggest blockbusters. Starting off, Need for Speed lines up the first week of sales with all the games selling for $5 with a PlayStation Plus subscription.
Call of Duty rolls in next with sales as high as $62.99 for the Call of DutyL Modern Warfare 3 Ultimate Edition. Isn't that game old now? The lowest price during this sale will be $7.49 for DLC packs to Black Ops 2.
Following up is Grand Theft Auto, and every game in the series has been marked down to below $5 for PlayStation Plus subscribers. Every game except for Grand Theft Auto V which sells for $39.99 and no PlayStation Plus price.
BioShock closes the month with the first two games on sale for $5, and all of BioShock Infinite's DLC has been discounted too. In fact, BioShock Infinite is the only thing not discounted, but if you have PlayStation Plus then it should already be in your Instant Game Collection.
Wow, a full month of sales and not a thing that I'm dying to buy. This is the first time Sony has ever pulled that party trick off. Anybody see anything they want?
