Weekly PS Store Update Goes Live – Far Cry 4 Available for Pre-Order

This week’s PS store update has gone live. It’s a big week for pre orders with Far Cry 4 available on both the PS3 and PS4. New games for the PS4 are in short supply, with only Crimsonland on offer. PS3 owners can buy Abyss Odyssey now, while Vita owners can get One Piece Unlimited World Red. There are no PS+ freebies this week,, but you can get discounts on Crimsonland, EA Sports 2014 FIFA World Cup, Ethan Media Hunter, and That Triva Game. Anarchy Reigns goes from $30 to $20, while Dust 514’s starter pack is now $1 instead of $3. The 2-for-1 sale returns and pairs Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons with How to Survive for $15. In a far more logical bundle, both Bionic Commando: Rearmed games are $10, while Narco Terror and Sacred Citadel are $10. NBA JAM: On Fire Edition and NFL Blitz are $15, while Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Vice Cities Stories for the PSP and Vita are $20. Max Payne 3: The Complete Edition and the base Red Dead Redemption game are $30, but it’s a shame Red Dead’s Game of the Year Edition isn’t included in this. Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger are $15, while Outland and Babel Rising are $10. From Dust and I Am Alive can be yours for $15, while Corpse Party and Corpse Party: Book of Shadows can be yours for $20. Rounding out the sale are Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Series and Peace Walker HD on the PS3 for $20.

While getting two games for the price of one is nice, it would be better if the pairings were a bit more logical and the prices were discounted for the games as well instead of just bundling them together – it’s a solid savings if you want both games, but no savings are offered up if you just want one of the games and the other one is kind of a bonus.  Other deals take BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma down to $31.49, Carnivorsed down to $1.49, and heavily discount fuel credits for Ace Company Infinity.If you’re into the Shin Megami Tensai series, then PSN once again has some deals for you. This week, you can get SMT: Devil Summoner 1 and 2 for $3.99 each in the PS3 store’s PS2 Classics section. On the PS3-only side, you’ve got Persona 2: Eternal Punishment and Persona 4 at $4 and $8 respectively.
