Sony's Days of Play Return With Discounted Games and a Limited-Edition Blue PS4

Sony wants to help you kill time during the hottest, sweatiest part of summer afternoons.

Sony's Days of Play summer event is coming back, and it's bringing discounted games and a limited edition PS4 with it. It's everything you need for staying indoors and out of the sun. Don't forget to draw your curtains and go "Hsssss!" at anyone who tries to open them.

Days of Play 2018 starts on June 8 and ends on June 18. Look for big discounts on PS4 hardware, games, and accessories. Also look for this year's exclusive PS4, a navy-blue console with the PlayStation's coat-of-arms (Square, Triangle, X, Circle) etched in gold. The controller's touchpad has the PlayStation shapes emblazoned on it as well. The console costs $299.99 USD and it's only available for a limited time. Move fast, collectors. But not too fast. It's hot out there.
