Today Sony has brought back an old tradition under a new name. This time the good selling and popular games are under the PlayStation Hits umbrella instead of the usual “Greatest Hits” term. Not a huge difference, but I’m a little sad to see that familiar title and logo go. It’s for the better though, as this new logo doesn’t take up as much space as the old one and it even turns the whole box red. If you were ever jealous about Nintendo’s red boxes they use sometimes now you can get some for yourself!
The range of games is quite impressive, all at the agreeable price of $19.99, there’s something here for everyone in this PlayStation Hits lineup. There’s the more kid-friendly Little Big Planet 3 and Ratchet and Clank. Racing games Project Cars and Drive Club for the more sport-centric gamers. Street Fighter V for the fighting game enthusiast. Infamous: Second Son for superhero fans. Bloodborne for those that want a challenge. And, well, a whole lot of shooters: Uncharted 4, Last of Us, Battlefield 4, Doom, Killzone: Shadowfall, and Metal Gear Solid V. Clearly Sony has some favoritism toward running and gunning.
But, what I’m most excited and surprised about, is that Yakuza Zero and Yakuza Kiwami are there, right at the end. I wouldn’t call myself a huge Yakuza fan, but I got into them in a big way with Zero and it makes me so happy to see the series included. TO think that there was a time a few years ago when it was never a sure thing we would get a new release cause of poor sales. Now Yakuza is held up beside the best of the best on PS4. If you haven’t checked out this wonderful series yet, please, make those two games your priority with these deals. If you want a better idea of what they are like, check out our review of the latest Yakuza game.
You can get all these fantastic games at their new $19.99 price point starting June 28. Let us know what you’re going to get in the comments!
Been a fan of video games ever since I opened up a Game Boy with Pokemon Yellow one Christmas far too long ago. I even taught myself to read by playing it! From then on, games and words have always been linked for me. I found that what I really liked about video games (and every other thing I owned) was the stories they held. I’m honored to be here, using my words to talk about the wonderful worlds that games can take us to.
