PlayStation has been consistently offering some of its best games over the past few months, including a chunk of its first-party library. It looked like Xbox was picking up the slack by offering its own first-party library for sale, but PlayStation sprung to life on Friday and threw together a big Flash Sale, featuring a handful of great games.

Xbox's Microsoft Publisher sale includes the best of Halo and Gears of War, along with other games published under their umbrella, like Sea of Thieves, Killer Instinct, and Dead Rising 4. As for PlayStation, they're offering up the best from the WB Games catalog, so look for the best from the LEGO games, along with Injustice 2 and the Batman games.

And lastly, we alluded to a free Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Wildlands weekend in the PC deals post. That free weekend also extends to consoles, so pick it up and try it out on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

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?
