Weekend Console Download Deals for Oct. 22: Halloween sales have begun

The major console makers are getting into the Halloween spirit early with the first major discounts for the Diablo Prime Evil Collection


Halloween is starting up early. It isn't for another nine days, but PlayStation is already getting into the spirit with its Halloween Sale, while Xbox is doing the same with its Shocktober Sale. A slew of horror-themed games (or games with spooky-themed holiday DLCs) are all on sale, but there are a few items of interest to check out. The Diablo Prime Evil collection marks the first opportunity to get Diablo 2: Resurrected at a discount and get a nice Diablo 3 tacked on as a bonus. Plus, enjoy the latest from Resident Evil, as the Halloween sales mark the first major discount for Village. Even Nintendo has a discounted Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrected if you look deep enough into its sale titles. Grab any of those or whatever else strikes your fancy. (I'd personally take a look at that first major discount for Lost in Random if you want to get your creepy Burton-esque vibe going.)

Elsewhere, it's that time of year again. The squeaking of sneakers on the hardcourt, ill-advised three-point shots, team chemistry starting off at a 10 and gradually degrading into a 3 or a 2 over the course of a long year, and the blissful banter of the Inside the NBA crew. Yes, basketball has tipped off, once again. That means the newest NBA 2K is out, too, and it's already got its first sale. Since next-gen consoles are the only way to experience the true next-gen gameplay (don't get mad at me, PC players, I'm not the publisher saying PC is a current-gen platform), you'll probably want to consider picking up that PS5 or Xbox Series X version of NBA 2K22.

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?
