Massive Discounts Announced

The PlayStation 5 hasn't officially had a price drop, but Sony's aggressive discounts make it feel like one. As part of its annual Days of Play sale event, Sony is taking $50 off the regular price of PS5s. Recent exclusives like Spider-Man 2 and Rise of the Ronin are also getting big discounts.

Days of Play 2024 Sale Details

Sale Duration and Offerings

Details on the Days of Play 2024 sale are up on the PlayStation Blog. Running from May 29 through June 12, the event offers price cuts on hardware, accessories, PS Plus subscriptions, and many games. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, released just a few months ago, is on sale for $55 at GameStop and Amazon. Other notable discounts include:

  • Tekken 8 for $49
  • Rise of the Ronin for $50
  • Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 for $50
  • The Last of Us Part II Remastered for $50

PS Plus Subscription Discounts

PS Plus Extra and Premium, Sony’s Netflix-like competitor to Xbox Game Pass, will also be cheaper.

  • Extra Tier: $91 for a year instead of $130
  • Premium Tier: $112 for a year instead of $160

These prices are slightly lower than what the tiers cost before Sony's price hike a year ago.

PS5 and PS VR2 Discounts

PS5 Price Cut

Normally $500 for the slim model and $450 for the all-digital slim model, both consoles will be $50 off when ordered from Sony’s website. This discount is part of the Big PlayStation Sale, aiming to boost PS5 sales.

PS VR2 Discount

Sony is also slashing $100 off the price of the PlayStation VR2, which normally costs $550. The version bundled with Horizon Call of the Mountain is included in this deal.

Sony's Strategy

Boosting Hardware Sales

These discounts come as Sony races to move more hardware. Despite impressive PS5 sales, roughly half of all PlayStation players still haven’t upgraded from the PS4.

PS VR2 Struggles

The PlayStation VR2 seems to be struggling. Despite its well-designed tech, high price and lack of must-have games have hindered its success. Sony hasn't disclosed sales figures for the new VR headset, and a report earlier this year indicated that production has halted due to backed-up inventory.
