News:: Xbox and PlayStation Summer Sales erupt in Weekend Deals

Last week PC gamers got the Steam Summer Sale, and this week the console brethren join in the discount magic with the Xbox Live Ultimate Game sale and the PlayStation Mid-Year Sale. If that erupting volcano header image doesn't get you excited, we're sure it's intriguing to Tom Cruise.

The Xbox sale seems to be highlighting recent releases and includes new lows on Battlefield 1 and Mass Effect Andromeda while the PlayStation sale has pretty good deals on titles like Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY and Ratchet and Clank. Like past year sales, both offer extra discounts on all games to paid members of either Xbox Live Gold or PlayStation Plus.

Unlike years past, we found a way to save an extra 10% in the PlayStation Mid-Year sale in the US. GMG, for the first time, is selling digital delivery PlayStation Store credits with a 10% off coupon. Buying those and using on the PS Mid-Year Sale will essentially save you an additional 10% off anything you buy.

Being the 4th of July weekend, big PC manufacturers like Lenovo are holding their usual 4th of July sales in the US. Probably due to high GPU demand for cryptocurrency mining, this year is a little disappointing in terms of gaming PCs compared to others, but we did find a few gems like the $899 Lenovo Y710 Cube PC or an HP Omen Desktop with a GTX 1060 for under $900.

In terms of PC summer sale, some cheaper-than-Steam titles are also lurking about, with Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Edition only $14 (vs. $20 at Steam), or Dark Souls III Digital Deluxe for $35 (compare to $42 at Steam).
