A new PlayStation Store sale is offering deep discounts on hundreds of PS4 and PS5 remasters and retro titles over the next few weeks.
It would appear that Sony has returned to form this week, offering PlayStation players another lineup of discounted titles on the PlayStation Store. While discounted titles are a normal practice for the purchasing platform, this latest sale is massive, encompassing well over 200 games with a focus on PS4 and PS5 remastered and retro titles.
Sony’s latest sale comes shortly after the conclusion of its Golden Week Sale, offering players deep discounts on games like Kingdom Hearts All-In-One Collection, Persona 5 Royal, and more. While the prior deals held a few major highlights, the new sale looks to have even more robust offerings.

The PlayStation sale includes titles both new and old for the PS4 and PS5. One of the biggest highlights of the sale is Square Enix and People Can Fly’s Outriders being 25 percent off, listed at $44.99. In terms of remastered or retro titles, the recent remaster of MediEvil currently has the bare-bones pricing of $14.99, while players can get their hands on Devil May Cry: HD Collection for half off at $14.99. Fans of the series who are able to spring an extra $4.80 can purchase the bundle version of the game, which also includes Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, a truly great value by any measure. Other deeply discounted notable mentions include remastered PS2 classics like Shadow of the Colossus and Spyro Reignited Trilogy.
The sale runs for exactly two weeks, officially ending on June 2. However, it isn’t the only sale PlayStation has planned over the next few weeks. Yesterday marked the start of the PlayStation Player Celebration, the precursor to the highly anticipated Days of Play promotion. While the PlayStation Player Celebration will run over the next three weeks, offering players the chance at earning communal digital goodies, the Days of Play sale will start on May 26. Days of Play will offer PS4 and PS5 owners massive discounts on some of its biggest AAA titles, including Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls, The Last of Us Part 2, and Ghost of Tsushima.
While news of another big sale on the PlayStation Store is sure to intrigue many owners of Sony consoles, not everyone is a fan of the digital platform. A consumer-constructed class action lawsuit has been filed against Sony over digital PlayStation sales restrictions, citing an unlawful monopoly due to only allowing digital games to be purchased through the PlayStation Store. The argument is interestingly similar to the one Epic is using with Apple in its heavily publicized court case proceedings. Both cases claim an unfair monopoly on their platform, leaving game developers and publishers without any viable alternatives.
Despite discontent from certain parties, the PlayStation Store is as popular as ever, continually bolstered by Sony’s expansive game sales. A recent report from the company reveals that 65% of its total game sales were digital in 2020, indicating that gamers are likely to continue buying from PlayStation‘s digital storefront more and more as time goes on.
