Thief and Tomb Raider PS4 are 50% off on the PSN store

Both Tomb Raider and Thief are currently included in a sale that means you can bag both games for 50% off their retail price. The two games are now priced at $30 each and are really great deals you should take advantage of.

It’s surprising to see Thief on sale since the game was only released last month although the fact it got average reviews may have something to do with it. Tomb Raider was released last year but the PS4 edition arrived earlier this year. Tomb Raider has got great reviews and is certainly worth your time if you haven’t already played it.

inFAMOUS: Second Son doubles PS4 sales in the UK

The release of the PlayStation 4 exclusive, inFAMOUS: Second Son, has boosted sales of the PlayStation 4 by 106% in the UK, compared to sales the week before.

The Xbox One also recently enjoyed a boost in console sales when the Microsoft exclusive Titanfall was released earlier this month. However, the boost in sales the PS4 has had are greater than Microsoft’s although the Xbox One is more expensive than the PS4 and we don’t have exact figures yet so the two consoles might well be more or less equal. The war rages on (which is great for us gamers).

Microsoft And Sony Are Having Some Great Sales On The Xbox 360 And PlayStation 3 Online Stores

For once it doesn’t matter if you’re a hardcore PlayStation fan or a dedicated Xbox supporter, as both consoles are having some great sales on their console’s online stores. Microsoft have started a sale which includes both weekly and daily deals with up to 93% off some games.

PlayStation meanwhile are having an Infamous inspired sale, no doubt to get gamers excited for the new installment Infamous: Second Son. Usually these sort of sales don’t tend to be much better than the kind of prices you’d find on Amazon or your local games shop but there really are some deals that can’t be beaten. Also, what with the yearly gaming slump of January and February, why not go back and buy a game you never got round to and is now dirt cheap?
