Some Big Horror Hits Are Getting Spooky Sales On PSN And Xbox Live

If Christmas inching ever-closer wasn’t enough to scare your bank balance then these Halloween sales might just do the job. There are some impressive deals on both consoles, with some multi-platform games seeing similar discounts. Resident Evil 4 which we recently finished a Super Replay on, is one of the highlights of either sale, though the PSN one is $3 cheaper at $11.99.

PlayStation users have plenty of frights to choose from. The newly remastered Dead Rising games are discounted up to $13.99 if you need some more interesting ways to kill zombies. There’s even a few cross-buy delights with Grim Fandango:Remastered, Neverending Nightmares, Paranautical Activity, and Poltergeist: A Pixelated Horror all getting their price tags trimmed. The wonderfully unique Oxenfree is also on sale, in three different flavors depending on if you want a theme or extra PSN avatars.

On the Xbox side of things, it starts off big with Mortal Kombat XL for $32.49. Dying Light is also reasonably priced if psychological horror is more your speed. The Resident Evil sales continue with 0, 5, and 6 available for both Xbox platforms. Finally, Dead Space is dirt cheap at $4.54 and is backwards compatible with Xbox One, which makes it almost perfect for the sale.

Our Take
I’ll take any excuse to get into the Halloween spirit, so I already bought some of these games when I heard they were on sale. It’s super exciting to see Catherine for under $5, but now I remember that I still need to beat it. Mortal Kombat seems like an awesome pick for this sale as well, though I wish they would’ve added Gears of War 4 into the mix too.
