If you’re a regular Slickdeals user, you’ve probably stumbled upon a hot video game deal at some point. In fact, there are pretty much always discount video games on our Frontpage, but with so many sales starting and ending every day it can be hard to discern which video game sales are worth your time.
This week, the PlayStation Store has gone deal crazy by adding several new sales to the website. The biggest of these discount events is the Halloween Sale that features 272 games and DLCs for up to 75% off. This promotion is available now through 8 a.m. November 1st, 2019.
If you have endeavored into virtual reality gaming, the PlayStation VR Anniversary Sale is also active with discounts of up to 75% off. There are 75 titles to choose from with top-rated bundles fit for Halloween like Resident Evil 7: Biohazard (Gold Edition). Mark-downs last through 8 a.m. October 22nd, 2019.
Fans of Ubisoft can also rejoice as the PS Store is a sale on over 100 games from the famed publisher. With Savings of up to 65% off, you can look to collect the many chronicles of Assassin’s Creed or Far Cry on the cheap. The sale ends at 8 a.m. on October 29th, 2019.
An EA publisher sale is also happening, however it is a bit on the small side. But if you love football or hockey, you can save 33% on Madden NFL 20 or take 25% off the newly released NHL 20. The discounts are good through 8 a.m. October 22nd, 2019.
With so many choices, it may be hard for you to decide. So to help you capitalize on especially good discounts, we’ve put together a list of the most eye-catching PS4 deals this week.

Devil May Cry 5 is the latest installment in the acclaimed action-packed series. Building upon its highly technical gameplay, you can enjoy hours of fun with an interesting campaign that has one of the best combat systems in the third-person action genre. While it isn’t the lowest price we’ve seen yet, it comes pretty darn close and is still said to be worth the investment by the gaming community. The Deluxe Edition comes with:
- Devil Breaker weapons: Gerbera GP01, Pasta Breaker, Sweet Surrender, Mega Buster
- Dante Weapon: Cavaliere R
- Battle Music: 3 tracks each from Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 2, Devil May Cry 3, and Devil May Cry 4

If you are a huge fan of the Dark Knight and missed out on the Warner Brothers Interactive sale last week, you have another opportunity to pick up this Batman bundle at a discount. This collection combines three great games to tell a story that took over the course of six years to release:
- Batman: Arkham Asylum
- Batman: Arkham City
- Batman: Arkham Knight
Though we’ve seen the price lower for Batman: Arkham Collection, getting each game for $6 is still a very worthwhile investment.

The Perks of a PlayStation Plus Membership
If your single-player adventures just aren’t cutting it anymore, you may want to take a dive into the world of multiplayer. To do this, you will need a PlayStation Plus subscription which comes to $59.99 for a year at full price.
The membership comes with several perks like access to exclusive discounts, free shipping when buying directly from PlayStation and 100GB of online cloud storage. But the most important incentive of all is the two free games every month which essentially pays for the subscription itself (though you only get to keep them until your subscription lapses).

Tips for Saving Money While Shopping for PS4 Games
1) Trade-In or Sell Old Games
Let’s face it, not all games have amazing replay value. If you have a bunch of these one-and-dones on your shelf, you might as well make some use of them. While the depreciation can be pretty harsh for some games, the average value of a trade-in is usually around $10. It doesn’t seem like much but when you put it towards a new $60, then you’ve given yourself almost 20% off.
2) Buy Used from Redbox
It might seem surprising but even with Netflix and all the other streaming services, Redbox is still alive and kicking. While it’s common knowledge that you can rent games and movies from Redbox, buying used games from them is a relatively new feature. Redbox used games can actually be extremely discounted if you are lucky enough to catch them. In the past, we’ve seen Red Dead Redemption II for as little as $17. There is always a little risk when it comes to buying used, but customers have found Redbox support to be very understanding on the off chance the game you buy doesn’t play.
If a PS4 game on your wishlist isn’t on sale yet, make sure to set a Deal Alert for it so we can notify you as soon as a deal drops.
