Sony’s Spring Fever PSN Sale & Hotline Miami 2, good deal, or not worth it?
Christmas seems like an eternity ago, Valentine usually doesn’t go well with gaming, and summer sales are far ahead. The month of March is usually not a great “sales” period for gamers in general, and I feel PS4/PSVita owners are no exception.
Sony has been trying to keep me and my twitter feed excited with their “Spring fever” sales, but I must admit it’s barely registering on my radar.
Yes, Hotline Miami 2 is out, and yes, I loved the first game. I’d love to get the sequel. Plus it’s a cross platform purchase (PS3/PS4/PS Vita) which is really cool. But come on, a mere 10% discount, and for PS Plus users only??? I mean, I’m a PS+ subscriber, don’t get me wrong, but if you expect me to get out of my way for a $1.5 discount, dear Sony, you need to try harder.
On the other hand, Sony are providing good discounts this week on the Saints Row series (mostly PS3, a couple PS4), and for the X-Men movies (if you’re that one guy on Earth who’s using Sony’s movie service, when everybody else moved to Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu).
So, yeah, Hotline Miami 2 is out this week, and if you’re a PS+ user, you’ll get it for $13.49 instead of $14.99. Good deal, or not? Are you excited about that game?
Note: Even if you live outside of the US, in general I strongly recommend that you get a US PSN account. Read here why. And you can buy US PSN Codes cheap from Amazon with this technique. So you don’t have to give your credit card info to Sony, or fight with Paypal refusing your payments.
