PS4 Days of Play Sale Returns With Death Stranding, Dreams, and Nioh 2 Savings

PS4 Days of Play Sale Returns With Death Stranding, Dreams, and Nioh 2 Savings

It'll basically lead right up to the release of The Last of Us Part 2.

With the reveal of the PlayStation 5 and some next-gen titles destined for it coming any day now (we hope), it's a decent time to celebrate the PlayStation 4 by way of slashed prices. Enter Days of Play 2020, a two-week sale event that will see some recent PS4 hits like Death Stranding and Nioh 2 go on steep discounts.

Lasting from June 3-17, the regular list of deals will apply both on PlayStation's only store and at participating retailers. There are a handful of deals for PlayStation Plus, PlatStation Now, and Sony's wireless headsets, but the highlights here are the recent releases. Nioh 2 and MLB The Show 20 will be on sale at $39.99, Death Stranding and Dreams will both be available for $29.99, and a handful of other titles like Days Gone and some PSVR selections will be even cheaper.

Sony also promises deals on some older PlayStation Hits titles, including The Last of Us Remastered for $9.99. Days of Play will end just two days before the June 19 release of The Last of Us Part 2, so if you've never played the original or never grabbed the remastered version before, that might be worth your Hamilton (plus tax, of course). This apparently isn't all that's planned for Days of Play, as Sony also says there'll be discounts for "blockbuster games, along with deals on PS Plus and PS Now," offered through the PlayStation Store.

The timing of this event may just coincide with some reveals concerning the PlayStation 5. VentureBeat's Jeff Grubb says Sony has a yet-to-be-announced event set for early June where it will feature a selection of next-gen titles. Earlier this week, Sony also discussed its plans to show off a "compelling" games lineup soon.

No doubt, we'll definitely be seeing more news about next-gen while Days of Play dishes out deals for the PS4—even if Sony doesn't hold an event in early June, we've also got both an EA Play and Ubisoft Forward scheduled for June 11, where we'll likely see what both publishers have planned for next-gen consoles in 2020.
