Huge PS4 holiday sale is live: New releases and ultra-cheap discounts

If you need some last-minute holiday gifts but you're unwilling to go to the store and don't want to risk a late online order, Sony has another option: steeply discounted digital game downloads. The company has launched its huge holiday game sale, offering everything from obscure to new release titles at discounts ranging from 'good' to nearly free.

As with any PlayStation Store sale, PS4 owners can easily buy the games they want by either signing into their PlayStation Network account and shopping through the website or by using their console to directly access the store and its games. Sony is conveniently splitting the titles up into categories that include "Under $15" options, New Releases, Adds-Ons, and Bestsellers.

New releases include a number of games, some with bigger discounts than others. Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is only discounted by $10 to $49 USD, for example, whereas FIFA 20 is 50-percent off at $30 USD. Other discounted new releases include Death Stranding, Need for Speed Heat, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Marvel's Spider-Man and The Outer Worlds.

If you're wondering what kind of games you can get for as little money as possible, good news: Sony has an extensive lineup for 'under $15' titles, including GTA V: Premium Online Edition ($15), Star Wars Battlefront II ($12.45), Monster Hunter: World ($15), Rocket League ($10), The Sims 4 ($10), and more.

As expected, the very cheap games aren't particularly notable, including things like Dynamite Fishing, Aces of the Luftwaffe, Bonfire, Bear with Me, Monkey King and more at less than five bucks each. This sale will remain live in North America until January 6 at 8AM PT / 11AM ET.
