If you didn’t have enough to play on your PS4, now’s the best time. Sony’s just kicked off a massive promotion, and JB has some solid sales.

The offers are available until June 8, and include Sony’s best AAA games from the last couple of years, as well as solid prices on some indie titles. You can grab a year’s worth of PlayStation Plus for $55.95, $24 cheaper than usual. Dreams and Nioh 2 have been discounted as well, and many of Sony’s best exclusives are available for less than $20.

Here’s the pick of the bunch:

  • Death Stranding: $34
  • Dreams: $34
  • Predator: Hunting Grounds: $34
  • Nioh 2: $59
  • Days Gone: $24
  • MediEvil: $24
  • Spider-Man: $24
  • Astro-Bot Rescue Mission (PSVR): $24
  • Concrete Genie: $24
  • Detroit: Become Human: $24
  • The Last Guardian: $24
  • God of War: $19
  • GT Sport: $19
  • Horizon: Zero Dawn Complete Edition: $19
  • The Last of Us Remastered: $19
  • Nioh: $19
  • Uncharted: The Lost Legacy: $19
  • Uncharted 4: $19

  • Until Dawn: $19
  • Little Big Planet 3: $19
  • Bloodborne: $19
  • inFAMOUS Second Son: $19
  • The Last of Us Remastered: $19

Lots of great picks on offer there. GT Sport is an especially good pick-up if you have a family member or friend who’s been glued to the virtual Supercars recently. Nioh and Nioh 2 are a great combo for a weekend (or three), and Until Dawn is still one of the best experiences to share with friends and drinks.

Good price on Death Stranding too, unless you’re specifically waiting for it to hit PC. And Helldivers is good to play with mates, if you want that punishing, twin-stick shooter experience with a touch of Starship Troopers.

You can grab all the deals in-store or, alternatively, by grabbing them online here.

How Steam's Spring Cleaning Event Works, And The Best Games On Sale

  • Playstation EU blog also mentions the Days of Play promotion, so I’m holding out to see if its online also..

    At JB the pick would be the Dual Shock controller for $79 which comes with Spiderman AND Far Cry New Dawn.. so essentially you get 2 games for free with a controller..

  • The Last of Us: so good you gotta mention it twice

    Finally smashed this out after years on the Pile of Shame, surprisingly active and engaging multiplayer too

    • I bloody love that game. Probably my favourite of all time, and I’ve been gaming for 40 years so it has a lot of competition for the title. Lost count of how many times I’ve played through it on both PS3 and PS4.

      And I never even looked at the multiplayer! 😀

      • It is an amazing work of fiction and a fantastic game.. which I have played through once and will never do again. Not because I didn’t enjoy it (I absolutely did), but I felt like I got the story and want to leave it encapsulated in its experience as a once off..

        That being said, I’ve played every Uncharted game at least 2-4 times (even the vita one!) but there was something about LTOU that made me say ‘one and done’..

        • I was in the same boat for a long time. I’ve played through all the Uncharted games multiple times, but there was something different about The Last of Us that kept me from replaying it. It was this amazing, long, emotional experience that just left me completely satisfied.

          That said, I’m in the middle of replaying it now for 2 reasons. Firstly my wife has never played the game for more than an hour or so. She wants to see the story, but isn’t a huge fan of the stealth/shooting gameplay, so she’s watching while I play through the remastered version.

          Second and perhaps more importantly, my life has changed a lot since the first time I played through the game. I’m not an unmarried uni student anymore. I have a wife and kids now (one of which is a beautiful little girl sitting on my lap right now eating cookies). Replaying the game as a parent is giving me a whole new appreciation for TLoU, and damn if it isn’t even more emotionally heart wrenching than before.

          • Married with 3 daughters, the eldest of which was around 11 when I played LTOU the first time, so just can’t go through that again! Well done for you though!

            It definitely is more cutting when you have kids the same age as the characters in the game and you see the hard ship and the performances are all top notch.

  • I’m currently playing through Nioh for the first time and I definitely support the purchase of that one. Great game. You’re gonna need more than 2 or 3 weekends though. The game can be legitimately hard (and broken as fk at times) even as a soulsborne vet.

    • I just finished Nioh last week. Had it sitting around for ages from PS+, finally gave it a try and loved it so played it all the way through over about a month.

      My tip – load up on as many sloth talismans as possible. They make every difficult enemy much, much easier. Lifeseal talisman also very useful. Ranged weapons are also pretty OP if you can snipe a few headshots before enemies see you, so carry as much ammo as possible for bow / gun / cannon.

      I also had a bad habit of not using my living weapon. I would either forget it was even there, or I’d be too concerned about saving it for the boss at the end of the level, even though it recharges pretty quickly so you don’t need to be that stingy with it.

  • Hahaha The Order 1886 for $24. I grabbed this about 6 months ago from EB for $5. Even then…actually guilty pleasure I kinda like this game.

    • I picked it up super cheap and gave it a go a few years back. It was a good game, just kinda short.

      I think the backlash surrounding the length did the game a real injustice.

  • Being a Sony impetus, it’s broader than JB. EB had mostly the same prices I saw. Indeed, I did pick up Horizon Zero Dawn CE for $19 and Doom (2016) for $15.
