Weekend Console Download Deals for Aug. 7: First FF7 Remake discount

The PlayStation Summer Sale rolls on and it continues with the first major discount for the digital version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake.


It's the beginning of August and the PlayStation Summer Sale is still going, although it's undergone a few changes. A number of the games that were on sale have rotated out, making room for a new batch of games. Among the games included is Final Fantasy 7 Remake. And yes, this is the first major digital sale for Square Enix's outstanding reimagining of the classic story. So if you've been waiting for a chance to jump in and also save a few bucks in the process, your time has finally arrived.

Elsewhere, it's QuakeCon season! You might have heard based on some of the news pieces we've posted. (As well as through some of our snark on social media.) But yes, QuakeCon is here and that means a giant QuakeCon sale across all three console makers. PlayStation has folded Bethesda games into their Summer Sale, Xbox has a dedicated QuakeCon sale that features a full Arkane collection, and Nintendo is offering up their Bethesda ports. And if you think the ports are a bad thing, then you've obviously never played that DOOM port, which holds up quite nicely.

Pokken Tournament is still on sale for Switch for those who didn't get it last week. And the monthly freebies have rotated, so if you haven't gotten in on the Fall Guys craze, now's the time to get it on PlayStation 4.

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?
