Low Budget Gamer: PSN Holiday Sale Week 2, Xbox Deals With Gold, Nintendo Discounts


*Low Budget Gamer is our weekly post highlighting deals on Xbox Live, Playstation Network, the Nintendo eShop, as well as the occasional random sale post should the need arise. Although sales are usually the same across the board, I should note that all prices listed are in USD.

Tuesday is sale day for Playstation and Xbox users, and while the Xbox Live weekly sale is short and sweet, the Playstation Holiday Sale has a ton of stuff up for grabs.

Xbox One owners can save 50% off of the turn-based high fantasy football RPG Blood Bowl 2, 40% off Divinity: Original Sin – Enhanced Edition, 50% off Goosebumps: The Game, and up to 33% off of Star Wars: Battlefront.

If you’re an EA Access subscriber, you can save between 40%-60% on Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC, Battlefield, Need for Speed Rivals, UFC, and NBA Live.

For the full list of sales, including Xbox 360, Xbox’s own Major Nelson has you covered.

The 2nd week of Playstation’s Holiday Sale is a bit more robust, with up to 85% savings for PSN Plus subscribers.

Although a majority of the deeper savings are on indie games, PS4 discounts are being offered on The Last of Us Remastered, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Star Wars: Battlefront, The Elder Scrolls Online, and The Crew.

Noteworthy indie sales include 50% off the absurd-as-shit Wario Ware-style shmup Shutshimi: Seriously Swole, the metroidvania Xeodrifter for $2, top-down bullet-hell Jamestown+ for $2.40, retro ZX Spectrum inspired Rock Boshers DX: Director’s Cut for $1.75, 2D wave-based Curses ‘N Chaos for $5, fast-paced tower defense Final Horizon for $3.25, and Metal Slug 3 for $3.75.

The Holiday Sale covers all Playstation platforms, so check out the full list over at the Playstation Store.

The current Nintendo eShop discounts aren’t much to write home about, but noteworthy Wii U discounts include Slender: The Arrival for $5.99 and the Earthbound-inspired RPG Citizens of Earth for $4.99. Citizens of Earth is the same price on 3DS, where you can also pick up Shin Megami Tensei IV for $14.99 and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked for $9.99 until December 28th.

For a full list of Nintendo eShop discounts, head over here.

Picking anything up? I’ll probably grab a few of the cross-buy indies, since I’m looking to beef up my Vita collection. Curses ‘N Chaos seems interesting, as does Xeodrifter, Jamestown+, and Rock Boshers DX.
