You know what’s awesome about the changing of the seasons? The holidays and obligatory sales that come with them, of course. As spring is making its more palpable appearance with us, Sony wants to offer discounts up to 50% off various PS3 and PSP games.

Beginning today and lasting through June 1st, the PlayStation Store will present these offers to you. This week features a few new shooter games, including Gravity Crash and Everyday Shooter for $4.99 each. Making these Spring Fever purchases will also entitle you to unique costumes to add to your flare. Keep an eye out on either the PlayStation Blog or Store for what the continuing weeks will bring.


Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) today announced that spring fever is in full bloom on PlayStation®Network. The annual PlayStation Network Spring Fever Sale kicks off on PlayStation®Store this week, offering PlayStation®3 (PS3™) and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system owners the opportunity to purchase a variety of popular and classic digital games at discounts of up to 50% throughout the season.
From March 25 through June 1, PlayStation Store will feature weekly promotions on must-own digital games to satisfy every taste – from racing thrills, to mind-bending puzzles, to adrenaline-pumping action. This week, PlayStation Store is offering the PlayStation Network exclusive shooter games Gravity Crash (for the PS3 system) and Everyday Shooter (for PS3 and PSP systems) for $4.99 each (regular price: $9.99 each) – half off the original price.

Participating PlayStation Network users can also shake off the winter “blues” and celebrate the new season in PlayStation®Home with two special costumes, available only to Spring Fever Sale shoppers. PlayStation fans can create a “buzz” with the “Spring Bumblebee” costume or select a unique “Spring Flower” costume. With the purchase of an item from the Spring Fever Sale, users will be rewarded with a voucher to be redeemed for a portion of the five part-costumes. This week, Spring Fever Shoppers can earn Spring Bumblebee feet and Spring Flower feet. Shop every week to collect and build your costume.

PlayStation Network is the premiere destination for digital entertainment, featuring thousands of entertainment options for PS3 and PSP system users, including exclusive games, movies, TV shows, digital comics, original programming and more. To date, more than 829 million pieces of digital entertainment have been downloaded by PlayStation Network users around the globe.
