For now, the sale hasn’t begun yet and there’s no way to check on how much each game will be discounted. Be sure to stay tuned on Kakuchopurei as we will be updating information on this sale when it’s revealed.


As someone who’s played on the original PlayStation, the PlayStation 2, the PlayStation 3, and is currently a proud owner of a PlayStation 4, it brings me great joy to see so many great games and their respective developers get the appreciation and recognition they deserve.

Around this time next year, we’ll all be having a PlayStation 5 of our own (hopefully) and experiencing more amazing games. Here’s to many more years of magic and excitement with PlayStation!
