Surprise Mid-Week PSN Flash Sale Live Now

Sony's surprise mid-week Flash Sale offers some steep discounts on PS4, PS3, and PS Vita games and runs alongside the current retro sale.

Sony's shaking things up a bit with its regular-yet-random Flash Sales. Where the sales usually go live for the weekend, this week's Flash Sale starts today, 7/18, and runs until July 22 at 8 a.m. PST/11a.m. EST. Note this sale is for PS Plus members only, it appears.

This time around, there are quite a few titles included, some of which are up to 75% off. Sony's picked a few particular highlights to lead the way, like Plague Tale: Innocence ($34.99) and Batman: Arkham Collection ($23.99), though it's a fair mix of well-known and niche titles.

As always, the July Flash Sale has something for almost all PlayStation Platforms except the PlayStation Portable, though even that has some titles still up for grabs from the previous retro sale until July 23.

We've rounded up some of the notable titles from each platform:

PlayStation 4

PlayStation 3

PlayStation Vita

If it seems odd Sony's suddenly decided to break form, there might be a pretty good reason behind it. Xbox just launched its massive Super Game Sale yesterday, offering equally steep discounts and incentives to part with hard-earned cash.

When chances like this come along, it's best to hop to it if something is of interest. Earlier this year, Sony tightened the reins of control over its digital offerings, meaning consumers won't be able to find most of these titles elsewhere — legally, at least.


Josh Broadwell's gaming career began early--1993, to be exact--when he was introduced to the Super Nintendo and Super Mario World. Despite all the magnificent games the SNES and, later, the original PlayStation had to offer, it wasn't until the GameBoy Advance era that he finally discovered RPGs, which quickly became a favorite genre. He holds a BA in history, an MA in history, and is currently pursuing an MA in strategic communication.
