A ton of PlayStation 4 games are on sale today

Ars Technica

Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by Sony’s “Days of Play” sale, a now-annual summer sale that includes deals on a wide range of PlayStation games, subscriptions, and accessories. Sony technically kicked off the event on Wednesday, but the company says the sale will last through June 17, with discounts available at its own digital stores and various third-party retailers.

We’ve rounded up the highlights of the sale below. In general, the offerings aren’t quite as diverse as what we saw in last year’s sale; there are no discounts on consoles or controllers this time around. But the event does bring a number of worthwhile PS4 games down to $10, including God of WarHorizon Zero DawnUncharted: The Nathan Drake CollectionBloodborne, and The Last of Us Remastered, among many others. The “Game of the Year” edition of Marvel’s Spider-Man dropping to $20 is another highlight, while more recent worthy games like DreamsDeath Stranding, and MLB The Show 20 are anywhere from $10 to $20 off their usual street price.

Outside of games, one-year subscriptions to Sony’s PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now services are both down to $42. This isn’t the largest discount we’ve seen for the former, but it’s still a good drop from its standard $60, and the service remains a must for playing the vast majority of PS4 games online. PlayStation Now is less essential, but its library of games has grown to the point of being a decent value—albeit not on the level of Xbox Game Pass—and it lets you download hundreds of those games alongside the usual cloud streaming. That deal price is the lowest we’ve tracked to date.

Hanging over all of this is the fact that the PlayStation 5 is set to launch by the end of the year, with Sony expected to reveal more details on upcoming games in the near future. But past reports have suggested that this brawnier console could cost somewhere in the $450 to $500 range. If you don’t plan to drop that much cash at launch, or you just want to catch up on PS4 games you’ve missed, the prices below are genuine deals.

If you don’t need anything more to play—or you’re just more of an Xbox or Switch person—we also have deals on Anker chargers, USB-C hubs, iPads and Apple Watches, and much more. Have a look for yourself after the jump.
