To say gamers weren’t exactly thrilled at Sony’s “Days of Play” reveal last week would be an understatement.
Additional coins, skins and other mostly cosmetic bonuses aren’t necessarily going to quench the thirst of people expecting free games or perhaps even discounted games.
On Tuesday, Sony leaders tried to calm the masses.
Sony Interactive Entertainment Director of Global Marketing Mary Yee announced on the company’s official blog that May 26 would bring a series of discounts for a two-week period set to end June 9.
The Days of Play sale will include lowered prices on several games including Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima for PlayStation 4 and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon Souls on PlayStation 5. You can see the full list of games along with other “Days of Play” benefits at the blog HERE.
Sony’s initial May 13 blog post about “Days of Play,” which announced the next stage of the months-long event, focused mainly on in-game content, such as 10 free packs in MLB The Show ’21.
That set off a series of comments below the blog post that blasted the company, with the first commenter setting the general tone for the rest of the comments, saying, “I’m not ungrateful for the handful of games we got last month, but after getting free games this doesn’t seem as exciting.”
