Our Take
As 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.
