Oculus has its winter sale, Steam has one too, and Sony isn’t missing out, at least in the EU. The PlayStation January sale is now on for European PS4 owners, and it includes the first sale of PlayStation VR games.
12 games are featured in the sale, all of which were featured at the launch of the headset back in October. It’s not the most exciting sale, though there are some welcome price cuts. Rebellion’s Battlezone [Review: 8/10], for example, has been dropped 30% from £49.99 to £34.99, which is the best price we’ve seen for it yet. Guerrilla Cambridge’s excellent multiplayer FPS, RIGS: Mechanized Combat League [Review: 8/10] has the exact same deal in place, while EVE: Valkyrie [Review: 9/10] has had 36% taken off to get down to £34.99.
Perhaps the best deal, though is for Driveclub VR [Review: 7/10], a rock solid adaptation of the racing simulator, which has had nearly half of its price slashed now costing £15.99. The brilliant Thumper [Review: 9/10] at $12.99 is a good deal, too.
Other deals include Sony London’s PlayStation VR Worlds [Review: 5/10] at £24.99, Cherry Pop’s Sports Bar VR at £9.99, FRAME’s Headmaster [Review: 6/10] at £9.99, CCP Games’ Gunjack at £3.99, nDreams’ The Assembly [Review: 7/10] at £14.99, Harmonix Music VR at £9.49, and No Goblin’s 100FT Robot Golf at £11.49.
Many of these games are also on disc, so make sure to check other retailers as the season of sales gets underway. It’s a good idea to get some of these games scratched off of your list before (hopefully) a wave of much bigger and better PS VR titles starts to role out in 2017. The year will really kick off for the headset on January 24th when Resident Evil 7 launches, and we’re really looking forward to games like Farpoint too.
Hopefully we’ll see some US deals surface in the coming days too. We’ll update this article if anything arrives.
