It's a golden time for Sony's Golden Week 2016 PlayStation sale


Try Gravity Rush, Yakuza, and Suikoden!

If you have an interest in cool Japanese things - and I'd wager you do, having visited this site and all - you might be aware that Golden Week, that most anticipated cluster of Japanese holidays, begins tomorrow, on April 29th, extending through May 5th.

While folks in Glorious Nippon prepare their vacation plans, everyone else can enjoy a cluster of discounts on "Japan-inspired" PlayStation titles and movies, courtesy of Sony's celebratory Golden Week PSN sale

Some of the standout deals include major discounts Gravity Rush Remastered on the PS4 and Yakuza 5 on the PS3, as well as some good deals on Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth, and even PS2 and PS1 classics like the Suikoden games and Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga.

Not forgetting that anime is also a Japanese thing, Sony's also put up deals on series like Cowboy Bebop, Deadman Wonderland, both seasons of Jormungand and Psycho Pass,  and even movies like Hal, A Letter to Momo, and The Last: Naruto the Movie

The actual prices can vary based on reason, so it's best to check out the store page itself to get the full list and real numbers. What will you be picking up?
