The lights are on
Not to be outdone by Microsoft's Ultimate Game Sale, Sony is prepared to unleash the hounds (of savings). Regardless of which platform is your favorite, summer is a great time to bleed your wallet.
If you're a PlayStation Plus member, the savings are even deeper, with some great titles like Batman: Arkham Asylum, LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, and the Ratchet and Clank Collection going for under $10 (50 percent off the non-Plus discounted price).
Here's the full list of discounted titles rolling out over the next two weeks:
July 2nd – 9th
July 9th – 16th
In addition to the games, a selection of movies will be available at lower than normal prices.

Our TakeAs wonderful as the Xbox Ultimate Game Sale and PlayStation Summer Blast are, it's important to remember that these purchases won't carry over to your new consoles come the fall. If you've got the available cash and time to play, these are some great buys (especially if you're a PlayStation Plus member). If you think you'll be upgrading (and removing your existing hardware from your entertainment center) keep that in mind before clicking "purchase." As for PC gamers, we're still waiting on word of Steam's annual summer sale.
