PlayStation is hosting a “Games of a Generation” sale, featuring massive discounts on hit titles such as Ghost of Tsushima and Red Dead Redemption 2.
The PlayStation Store is celebrating the PlayStation 4’s library with the “Games of a Generation” sale, including Ghost of Tsushima, Red Dead Redemption 2 and other hits from across the console’s lifetime. The sale features impressive discounts on popular PS4 titles and may be the last sale of significance until after the PS5 is released next month. Combined with the Games Under $15 sale and the ongoing Big in Japan sale, it seems like the time is now right for Sony enthusiasts to round out their PS4 libraries.
It’s not surprising that Sony is upping its game when it comes to its online marketplace; the Xbox Games Pass has been in the news quite a bit recently due to Microsoft’s acquisition of ZeniMax Media, a promotion that allows users to access the first month of Games Pass for $1, and the announcement that Doom: Eternal will be landing on the service on October 1. Additionally, Microsoft has announced that the Xbox Series X and S will both be almost fully backwards compatible, lending a great deal of content to the next-gen consoles on day one. Although the PS5 will be backwards compatible with many titles from the PS4’s library, it does not appear that games from earlier consoles will be available – at least not yet.

The sale is live on the PlayStation Store until October 15 and features discounts on a veritable goldmine of PS4 hits. Games like the massively popular Ghost of Tsushima are 25 percent off, with slightly older titles like Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order being half off. The sale doesn’t solely focus on recent titles either; Call of Duty Black Ops III – Zombies Chronicles Edition is a staggering 67 percent off, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt can be acquired for only $12. The special edition of Red Dead Redemption 2 is another standout, which is marked down from the original $80 to $28. Other notable titles are Middle-Earth: Shadow of War Definitive Edition for $12 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience for $8.
This sale is not just an opportunity for PS4 owners, but for prospective PS5 owners as well. It’s been confirmed that 99 percent of PS4 games will be playable on PS5, meaning most titles available in the sale will make the leap to next-gen. Although Spider-Man is not included in the ongoing sale, it’s been confirmed that Spider-Man: Miles Morales will include a remastered copy of PS4’s Spider-Man, adding one more PS4 classic to the PS5’s library.
This sale is a great opportunity for Sony to showcase which games it considers to be most the most significant of the current generation. Although it doesn’t contain every game one might think of when considering the PS4’s legacy, it is certainly a fantastic representation and reminder of the reasons gamers bought the console in the first place. If the games included in this sale are backwards compatible on the PS5 on launch day, then Sony has made a great case for going with the next console on day one without losing access to some of the best games on PS4.
