For any PlayStation 3 owners looking for some fighting games to play on their console, a couple of the best downloadable fighters on the system are currently on sale as part of a Flash Sale on the PlayStation Network.

Super Street Fighter II HD Remix, the rebalanced re-release of the classic Super Street Fighter II Turbo is currently on sale for only $3.99. The game features the original “Super Turbo” cast with a host of balance changes meant to tighten up the game’s admittedly lopsided match ups. In addition to this, it also features brand new HD sprites drawn by the artists over at Udon Entertainment and rollback netcode for some smooth, online combat.

For those looking for something more chaotic, Lab Zero’s Skullgirls Encore is also on sale for only $1.99. This eclectic fighter pays homage to the classic Marvel vs. Capcom 2, refining the many unintended mechanics of that game into a solid tag-team fighter. As with HD Remix, Skullgirls Encore also features rollback netcode, this time via the use of GGPO, the networking solution originally developed by Evo and Shoryuken co-founder Tom “Ponder” Cannon.

Any players interested in picking up either of these should hurry however, the flash sale ends at 1:00 PM on April 17.
