Game prices are increasing with the PlayStation 5, but this hobby is simultaneously more affordable than it’s ever been. Sony’s done a great job driving costs down on the PlayStation Store all generation, and you can pick up some killer deals assuming you’re willing to wait. To illustrate just how much value you can get purchasing digitally, we’ve compiled a list of PlayStation 4 titles currently discounted in the UK, which add up to roughly the same price as a single £69.99 next-gen release.
Take a look at this. All of these games have at least a 75 aggregate review rating, as calculated by Open Critic:
- Dragon Age: Inquisition Game of the Year Edition (£6.24)
- Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator (£2.39)
- Limbo (£1.84)
- Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience (£3.19)
- Persona 5 (£9.99)
- Project CARS 2 (£6.71)
- Resident Evil (£3.99)
- Sniper Elite 3 (£3.19)
- Steins;Gate 0 (£3.99)
- Tales of Berseria (£3.19)
- The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (£7.49)
- Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (£7.99)
- Yakuza 0 (£10.39)
With so many games currently on sale, we could have come up with several different permutations of this list, but the point is that all of the above games can be bought for £70.59 – just 60 pence more than Demon’s Souls or Destruction AllStars. Whether you’re sticking with your PS4 for the foreseeable future, or even getting a PS5 at launch, it’s always worth remembering that you don’t need to spend a lot of money to get hours of entertainment out of your console.
