What is the Definition of an Insane Price?

For a limited time only, starting today on July 8th, Far Cry 3: Classic Edition is on sale for $3 on the PlayStation Store. To give you an idea of just how insane this price is: the normal price is $29.99. So is this a good deal? Heck yeah. A 90% price cut is always a good deal. At that price, it’s practically free.

That face you make when you see that 90% price cut.

The only catch is that this $3 price will be available only until July 22. Specifically until 11:59 P.M. That’s 2 weeks from today, so you have plenty of time to decide if you want to add Far Cry 3: Classic Edition to your library. Also, please note that this sale is only on the PlayStation Store, so if you don’t have a PS4, well, tough luck.

Should You Get It?

Trailers don’t always tell the whole story.

So what’s the difference between Far Cry 3: Classic Edition and the normal version? Well, not much really. The Classic Edition is just the regular Far Cry 3 ported to the PS4 and Xbox One. It’s not even a remastered version. In fact, you can only make out slight improvements in graphics when you compare the 2 games side by side. Don’t me me wrong. The improvements in graphics are noticeable, but it’s just that they’re still minor improvements.

Maybe if you squint, it’ll be more noticeable.

The real improvements are in frame rate and overall performance. Far Cry 3: Classic Edition runs much more smoothly than the original. It’s especially noticeable when you compare the 2 side by side. You can clearly make out the parts where the characters move slightly more slowly compared to how they move in the Classic Edition.

Definitely a marked improvement here performance-wise.

So is it worth getting by itself? Only if you’ve never played it, or like me, you’ve never finished it. But hey, at least it’s only $3, so you haven’t lost much if you’re not satisfied with it.


The PS4 version of Far Cry 3: Classic Edition is on sale in the PlayStation Store for $3 until the very end of July 22. You have 2 weeks to decide if you want it, so make them count.
