PlayStation Summer Sale Brings Up To 80% Discounts on Racing Games

The latest sale in the PlayStation Store is now with us, and racing game fans will find plenty to like among the thousands of titles, DLCs, and in-game currency/item discounts.

Running through to August 18, this deal period is known as the PlayStation Summer Sale. Players can see up to 80% discounts off some titles, though most are 40-60% reductions — still pretty handy if there’s a title you’ve been looking for an excuse to try out.

The precise discounts and prices vary depending on your PlayStation Store region, but they are in the same ballpark by and large, and it’s actually some of the “ultimate” editions of games – those containing most or all of a particular game’s add-on content – that see the biggest discounts.

This includes Assetto Corsa (80% off), Dirt Rally 2.0 (75% off), all three titles in the Project CARS series (50-80% off), and DIRT 5. One strange exception we’ve found is F1 2020, where the Schumacher Edition isn’t discounted, but both the base game and the Schumacher Edition DLC add-on are, giving a 70% discount over the standalone version.

Gran Turismo Sport is also included in the sale, with the Spec II version coming in at 60% off in the European PlayStation Store. If you’re one of the three or four people left worldwide who doesn’t yet own it, you can also pick up Grand Theft Auto V‘s Premium Edition for a 60% discount and jump into the new Los Santos Tuners expansion for the game’s Online version.

The promotion runs over the next four weeks, although some titles may leave the sale on August 4 so you will need to pull the trigger a little sooner in some cases. We’ve included a list of relevant titles and expansions below:

  • Assetto Corsa
    • Assetto Corsa – Ultimate Edition

    Sweet, just picked up PC2 deluxe edition for $13.49. This is a killer deal.

    Unfortunately I had already bought the base version at launch for a discounted price but at the end of the day I still managed to pay
