Days of Play is an annual celebration of all things PlayStation, and the 2024 iteration just kicked off with a host of freebies confirmed and the launch of a massive PlayStation Store sale with lowest prices ever on loads of the very best PS5 games

The Days of Play 2024 sale will likely be the biggest until the Black Friday event in November and it’s living up to its billing. There are almost 1,000 deals in total including first-time discounts on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 (now $49), Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (now $52), Rise of the Ronin (now $49) and TopSpin 2K25 (now $55)

Other unmissable deals that have my bank balance sweating include Lies of P for $41 (was $59), the stunning Dead Space Remake at a remarkable 65% off and former Xbox exclusive Hi-Fi Rush at an all-time low price of $17 (was $29). Plus, The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered is just $39 (was $49). This is the first time this jaw-dropping masterpiece has been on sale. 

The Days of Play discounts are extending beyond the PlayStation Store with online retailers also slicing significant money off must-play PS5 games. So, if you’d prefer a physical disc to a digital download, I’m rounding up the best gaming deals at Amazon and Best Buy as well.
