PS4 game and hardware deals begin June 7
Not to be confused with PlayStation’s State of Play streams, Days of Play is an annual sales promotion with deals on popular games and hardware including PS4 Pro consoles and PlayStation VR bundles.
For 2019, Sony is offering discounts on games like Days Gone, God of War, Spider-Man, and MLB The Show 19 – they’re “starting at $19.99.” That carefully-worded phrasing leads me to believe Days Gone, a successful game many of us have sidelined while we wait for a discount, will probably only dip down to $39.99. Still though! Not a bad price for on-the-fencers who could use an open-world time-sink.
Days of Play 2019 runs from Friday, June 7 until Monday, June 17. So, right before E3.
Other offers this year include a jet-black 1TB PS4 Pro for $349.99, a limited-edition Days of Play 1TB PS4 for $299.99 (featuring the triangle, circle, cross, and square buttons on the top of the system), and PlayStation VR bundles starting at $249.99 (with Five Nights at Freddy’s VR and Trover Saves the Universe). These deals will be at participating retailers in the US and Canada while supplies last. For our friends in the UK, consult your local PlayStation Blog for regional pricing. The dates are the same.
There will also be the typical discounts on many of the DualShock 4 color variants (as low as $39.99, so stock up) and assorted PlayStation Hits like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Ratchet & Clank, Bloodborne, and The Last of Us Remastered (as low as $9.99). It’s wild for me to see these prices attached to these names even if the PS4 is getting on in years. Friends don’t let friends skip Bloodborne.
If you’re living a mostly digital life, you can look forward to deals on PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Now subscriptions and “awesome deals for digital blockbuster games” on the PlayStation Store. We’re spoiled by constant flash sales, but Days of Play is worth a look. Set a reminder if need be.
While we’re talking late-stage discounts, it’s also worth reminding that PlayStation VR will be compatible with PlayStation 5 and there won’t be a new PSVR model alongside the launch of the PS5.
