There are a lot of great consoles out there, but few have made as much of an impact on gaming as Sony's PlayStation. Even so, the latest iteration, the PlayStation 5, was a bit of a hit and a miss when it first came out, especially since there were issues with getting stock, and the PS4 still felt relatively fresh. Since then, the PS5 has become much better as a gaming console, with a lot more first-party titles, better availability, and even lower cost. To that end, if you want to grab yourself a PS5, or PS5 games, then Sony's Days of Play event is the perfect time to pick up a bunch of cool stuff, and we've listed some of our favorite deals below.

While the story isn't as strong, the combat and gameplay are much better, and exploration is a lot of fun.
