Vote for your Favorite: Assassin’s Creed Ezio Collection vs. Final Fantasy XV

Posted by on Feb 27, 2017

For a few years now, our friends on the LATAM teams have run “¡Vota Por Tu Favorito!” – a campaign where fans choose the next game to go on sale at PlayStation Store. We loved the concept so much here in the US, we’ve joined forces to bring “Vote for Your Favorite” stateside.

Over the next month, we’ll match up two different titles each week, along with their prospective discounts, and give PS Blog readers the sole power to decide which game we’ll set on sale that weekend.

Voting kicks off every Monday right here via PlayStation Blog poll.

Up first, we’ve got Assassin’s Creed The Ezio Collection vs. Final Fantasy XV!
