Weekend Console Download Deals for 3/9: PlayStation Flash Sale & Square Enix Classics

PlayStation is having another big flash sale this weekend. Meanwhile, Square Enix is offering huge discounts for Xbox and PlayStation owners, but the latter will be a little more difficult to track down. (And also more rewarding.)

It's a big weekend for console game sales. PlayStation's having one of its regular Flash Sales, offering discounts on a handful of major third-party and select first-party games. That plus the PlayStation Plus freebie rotation would be more than enough for a good weekend. But there's even more to look out for.

Square Enix is offering its catalog across both Xbox and PlayStation platforms. Here's the thing to note, however: The PlayStation Square Enix deals are not part of the Flash Sale. So if you go into the Flash Sale section and search for these, you will not find them there. Shacknews has done some digging for these Square Enix deals for PlayStation users, finding the usual handful of western games. But we've also found rare deals on classic Final Fantasy games. PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita owners in particular will want to pay extra attention to the old-school Final Fantasy games and the old-school Chrono Trigger (the good one, not the other one!) on sale. We've dug up as many of these deals as we could, so check it all out below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
