Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 turns 10 this November. With that in mind, Sony is taking a look back at its last-gen console by launching a special sale called "the Best of PS3."
As the name suggests, the Best of PS3 features some of the PlayStation 3's greatest hits, all of which were hand-picked by the PlayStation Store team. The collection includes titles from developers such as Naughty Dog, Capcom and Rockstar, and of course, all of them are being offered for a reduced price.
The Best of PS3 collection is by no means all-inclusive (for example, the Capcom collection doesn't include Resident Evil 6 or Devil May Cry 4), however, there are still plenty of games offered in the sale.
Here is some of what the PlayStation Store is offering:

In addition to listing games based on which company they're from or what platform they're on, the PlayStation Store also has many of these listed based on their genre or price, causing them to be listed under multiple categories. For example, Street Fighter IV appears in both the Challengers section and Capcom section, while BioShock Infinite appears in the $19.99 and 2K sections.
All in all, these offerings are quite good, though it's debatable whether or not this is truly a proper sale and not just simply matching current retail prices.
Interestingly, Microsoft is doing an Xbox 360 Super Sale that features many of the titles offered by Sony. The main difference between the two, however, is that the Xbox sale ends on May 30, 2016, while Sony has made no mention of when its sale will end. Considering that Sony marketed the sale as a homage to the PlayStation 3, it's possible the sale will last a little longer than a week.
