Sony has been rightfully criticized for selling its PS5 games at a higher price than PlayStation 4 games. On the flip side, you can't exactly say that the current-gen titles aren't worth it.
Most, if not all, the PS5 games that Sony has released so far for its current-gen console have been worthy of the higher price tag. But, even if the price is justified, it doesn't mean that you should always pay full prices for games. The more economical gamers will always find a way to save money while still be able to build up their games library.
If you've been waiting for a sale to add more games to your PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, then we've got good news for you.
What to buy from the PlayStation Store Summer Sale
Sony has just discounted thousands of games via its PlayStation Store Summer Sale event. The promotion will run through August 18 for most titles, with the discounted period lasting only until August 4 for certain games.
