PlayStation Summer Sale: A Tradition of Discounts
Every year, as sure as the sun will rise, Sony blesses us with a grand cutting of prices in their PlayStation Store, and 2023 is sticking to that same, beautiful script. From the masterpieces birthed by Sony itself to those crafted by third-party geniuses, the opportunity for cut-price gaming delights is now ripe for the picking.
Now, while Sony sprinkles the calendar with various sales throughout the year, like Sony’s Days of Play for instance, the Summer Sale stands tall, towering above them like a discount Goliath. The sale’s window of a few tantalising weeks not only beckons gaming fans like a moth to a flame, but also lays out a veritable smorgasbord of titles, each tastier than the last, and all at deliciously discounted prices. A veritable feast for the wallets of gamers everywhere!
Let’s get into the nitty-gritty then, shall we? The PlayStation Store Summer Sale splashes down on July 19th and basks in the sun until August 16th. But be warned, some titles will only be catching rays until August 2nd.

With an overwhelming 3,000 deals fluttering about like confetti at a wedding, PlayStation devotees will need to take a leaf out of Sherlock’s book, and sift through the offers with meticulous care. They can expect to find titles including ‘The Last of Us Part 1‘, ‘Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition’, ‘The Last of Us Part 2’, and ‘Horizon: Forbidden West’. The pricing for these hotcakes, except for ‘The Last of Us Part 1’, has been slashed in half, making them all tempting bites.
As PlayStation users traverse the summer sale landscape, they might notice that third-party games seem to be hogging the limelight a bit this year. ‘Yakuza: Like A Dragon’, ‘Titanfall 2’, ‘Little Nightmares 1 & 2 Bundle’, ‘Deathloop’, and ‘Marvel’s Midnight Suns’ are flaunting discounts well north of 50%, acting as sweet sirens of the PlayStation ocean. ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2‘ is also peeking its head above the discount parapet this year, whilst ‘Cyberpunk 2077’ is sitting at half price, primed for those looking to leap into the forthcoming ‘Phantom Liberty DLC’.
