Sony Announces ‘PlayStation Hits’ – A Line Of Low-Priced PS4 Games
The PlayStation 4 has been out for several years at this point, with the hardware acquiring quite the library of games since the system’s launch. In the past, Sony would take this opportunity to offer older games at a lower cost, with these re-releases bearing the “Greatest Hits” banner. A new PS4 variant of the budget line has now been announced as “PlayStation Hits,” and plans to offer that same deal with some of the current platform’s most popular exclusives.
Re-releasing at the much more wallet-pleasing price of $19.99, several of the best games from PS4 past will be available on the PlayStation Store and through select retailers, but this time sporting red packaging as opposed to the usual blue. The first wave of Hits is set to begin rolling out in the U.S. on June 28th, starting with favorites such as Bloodborne, The Last of Us Remastered, DOOM, and Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience. The full lineup of games can be viewed in the list below:
- Infamous: Second Son
- Killzone: Shadow Fall
- LittleBigPlanet 3
- Ratchet & Clank
- The Last of Us Remastered
- Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
- Battlefield 4
- Project CARS
- Street Fighter V
- Yakuza Kiwami
- Yakuza 0
- Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience
While the first wave of PlayStation Hits is an undeniable roster of greatness, there is a notable under-representation of third-party inclusions in this first offering. The same isn’t the case for other regions, with the UK getting to enjoy multi-platform favorites like Batman Arkham Knight and Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag at smaller prices. Of course, it’s completely possible we could see price-dropped titles such as these arrive stateside in later additions.
What do you think? Are you happy to see PlayStation 4 offer these discounted games, or are you not feeling the underwhelming third-party inclusion?
