Playstation Store PLAY 2013 Deals Unveiled

Posted by on July 15th, 2013 | 9 Comments | Tags:

PlayStation is continuing their annual summer game showcase with four brand new titles this year. How the sale works is basically, the more of these games you buy, the more money you get back in return in the form of a voucher. Along with that, you will also receive an XMB theme based on the game you bought.

Pre-orders will begin July 16, with the first game going on sale July 23rd, and the final game going on sale on August 13th. The sale is currently only confirmed on North America, and nothing is known if any other regions will participate in the sale.

The games will be:

Along with the money given back through the pre-orders, PlayStation Plus members will also receive 20% off of each game. So, all of the $9.99 games will be $7.99 and DuckTales will be $11.99 for Plus members. I know I’m going to have to try out DuckTales and Ibb & Obb, but what games will you be picking up from the PLAY sale?

  • Devin Hudson

    Hmm, I’m actually interested in all of the games, which is a first since they started this Play promotion. I might just stick with the $10 games for now though, as I’ll just be able to afford them between what’s left in my wallet and a $20 PSN card (thanks to the 20% PS+ discount). With the $6 cash back, that’s just $6 a game which is a pretty good deal for newly released games.

    I’m kinda hesitant on Cloudberry Kingdom though, since I’d prefer to play it on Vita and so far there’s no confirmation on whether the game will be cross buy or not. I don’t want to buy it now and then have to shell out again for the Vita version later. I hope they announce whether it is or not while the game is still available for pre-order.

    Ibb & Obb looks legit, and I know Stealth Inc is good, but $15 for DuckTales? Really? Hoping we get a press copy of that, cause I’m not sure I’m sold at that price point.

    • Ed Carroll

      Yeah, glad they’re doing a Plus Discount on that game, cause even $12 seems steep for a remaster of an NES game.

  • I’d probably grab them all, though I’d be more likely to grab them on Vita if they were there.

  • Diego

    Hello! sorry im a ps plus noob I currently have a 30 day trial going if i buy a game with the 20% discount offer will I still be able to play it when my trial is over? I dont plan on getting a ps+ year yet since i only have the vita so im waiting for the ps4. If anyone can answer please!

    • noahb16

      Hey Diego! For Playstation Plus, any of the free games you recived will go away, but games purchased on a dicount will stay. So yes, if you purchase a game from this promotion you will get to keep it. Hope I helped!

    • Eric G

      Yeah, what Noah said. I’m waiting for a couple of good deals before I activate my 30 day trial so that I can purchase the games cheap and keep them.

      I did that with LBPKarting, RCR, and a couple of other games last time they were all on sale.

  • Nexus Prime

    For me, the way I look at it, I’ll be getting Ducktales regardless, so any of the other games I add on with the PS+ discount and the Play deal will cost me $5 each. Now I’m just wondering which ones will be worth it.

  • Ed Carroll

    Ducktales for sho, Stealth Inc looks rockin too. I know very little about the other two.
