PlayStation Store Blockbuster sale sees PS5 games crash to $7


The PlayStation Store has just launched its latest promotion, the Blockbuster Games sale. While the digital storefront is practically always running some form of discount, this collection of offers is one of its most substantial so far this year and sees literally hundreds of PS5 and PS4 games significantly reduced. 

The Blockbuster Games sale (opens in new tab) is due to run on the PlayStation Store until September 28, and all together packs nearly 1,000 discounts when you factor in all the DLC bundles that have also been discounted. The real headline grabbers however are the savings on some of the best PS5 games with the likes of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Gran Turismo 7 and Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut all included. 

The best PlayStation Store Blockbuster deals

Several of our favorite games of 2022 have seen price cuts in this PlayStation Store promotion. This includes The Quarry, Ghostwire: Tokyo and Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, these are all games we thoroughly recommend. Especially if you skipped them at launch because you were too busy playing Horizon: Forbidden West and Elden Ring

The best PS4 games included in this sale shouldn’t be overlooked either, particularly because many of them offer a free next-gen upgrade and even the ones that don’t can still be played on PS5 via backwards compatibility. For example, if you don’t already own The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt now is the perfect time as the Game of the Year Edition is just $9, and it will give you free access to the next-gen version which is scheduled to launch this winter. The Last of Us Part II for $24 is another PS4 title we strongly recommend, and it plays even better on Sony’s next-gen console.  

Alongside hundreds of full games there is also a whole load of DLC included in this Blockbuster sale. For starters, the Year 1 Pass for the surprisingly excellent Riders Republic has dropped to just $19, and the season pass for the somewhat underrated Watch_Dogs Legion is also the same price at $50 off. And speaking of Witcher 3, if you’ve somehow not played its incredible expansions, Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine, a bundle containing both is currently just $7. This is an unbelieve price for two of the best DLCs ever made. 

The PlayStation Store Blockbuster sale runs for the next two weeks, which should be more than enough time to comb through the hundreds of discounts and pick out the savings that most appeal to you. Just to be warned, there are so many worthwhile PS5 and PS4 games on offer here you’ll probably end up picking up quite a few at once. If you’re looking for a console, make sure to check out our PS5 restock guide.
