According to a tipster on Reddit from Australia, Google Play is celebrating its second birthday and is offering many apps and other content for either free or at a discount.

I’m based in the U.S. and couldn’t see the deals yet by going to the link below, but when I used the “Hola Better Internet” Chrome extension and changed my region to Australia, I could see the deals without any issues.

The limited-time deals include a “24-hour music deal, Movies to Buy from $3.50, Books Under $5, 30% off magazine subscriptions” and more.

  • “FIFA 14″ by EA – Free

Note that you may see the sale pop-up in your region eventually and it may or may not have the same apps, movies, books, magazines and prices. The promotion for Google Play’s first birthday began March 5 last year, which at the time of writing this, it is already in that part of the world. Also, some of these apps were free to begin with, so it may not be the best promotion we’ve seen.
