PlayStation’s Days of Play Deals Start June 7th

Ah, the Days of Play sale. It’s the annual time for you to grab some great games cheaply, a limited edition console, a discounted controller, and other great deals. This year it runs from June 7th – 17th, but it’s not without some missteps. Since I seem to be saucier than normal today, let me give you the good, the bad, and the ugly details.

Let’s start with the games. We have a huge sale on the PlayStation Store starting June 7th. Some “blockbuster games” will have big discounts, but I would be willing to bet there will be a collection of games included, so start saving your digital currency now. There will also be discounts on PS Now and PS Plus, so, although not novel, it is very much appreciated.

Some of PlayStation’s biggest hits will be discounted at retailers too.¬†PlayStation Hits will be $9.99, and there are some real winners in there, even at the regular $19.99 price. Along with discounted PSVR bundles, they show Marvel’s Spider-Man, God of War, and Days Gone will be $19.99. That’s cool, but Days Gone is barely a month old. It seems early for it to take a 66% discount. I’m not complaining, mind you, but I am taking notice. For other physical goods, controllers will be $39.99, and that’s delightful. The alpine green color may tempt me mightily during this sale.

There will be a new limited edition PS4 in steel black for $299. You didn’t read that wrong. It is a PS4. The PS4 Pro in jet black will be on sale for $349.99, but the limited edition console is Sony’s older tech. It doesn’t look bad, but I am confused as to why they wouldn’t make it PS4 Pro, especially this close to the dawn of the PS5 era. It’s baffling. Please put your ideas and conspiracy theories in the comments.

My criticisms aside, the Days of Play sale is a good time to get some games and hardware for less, and I am excited to see what happens. Those savings start next Friday, June 7th.
