Sony Days of Play 2018 is a good time to shop

Next month, let's celebrate PlayStation with some deals

Today, on the Official PlayStation blog, Sony announced the return of the Days of Play. For those who don’t know what this is, it is basically a period in June where Sony is offering discounts on PlayStation software and hardware in stores. This year, it will be from June 8th to June 18th.

Hardware deals and a new bundle

In terms of hardware, there will be a new limited-edition PS4 console bundle (not the Pro) with a 1 TB hard drive. It will be blue with gold symbols (the colors of this year’s sale), and the controller will match the design as shown below.

In addition, a series of rebates on existing hardware and peripherals will be offered:

  • PlayStation Pro consoles at $349.99 US / $449.99 CAN
  • PlayStation VR bundles starting at $199.99 US / $249.99 CAN
  • DualShock 4 controllers at $39.99 US / $49.99 CAN

Game deals on first-party titles

They have also announced a series of first-party game titles that will be on sale during this period:

  • God of War at $49.99 US / $59.99 CAN

Let’s not forget about the services

Finally, there will be promotions on 2 of Sony’s services. During the event, a 1-year subscription to PlayStation Plus will cost $49.99 US / $59.99 CAN. For US customers,  PlayStation Vue will offer a $10 US rebate per month off the Core plan standard price for the first 2 months. After which, it will continue at the regular price of $44.99 US per month.

They say to stay tuned because there will be a catalog of titles from both PlayStation Plus and the PlayStation Store that will have rebates when purchasing certain titles.

So, this is definitely a nice warmup sale pre-E3. For those that were on the fence on some of Sony’s first-party titles, there are definitely some gems in here. Maybe for you, it is more the new hardware and accessories that are enticing you. I can’t wait for what’s revealed during this event next week. What do you think about this?
