Sony announced that the Days of Play sale will return on June 8, bringing with it a limited edition blue PlayStation 4, plus discounts for PS4 games and accessories.
The Days of Play Sale will celebrate E3 2018, which will run from June 12 to June 14. The Sony E3 2018 Showcase will focus on PlayStation 4 exclusives, with the PlayStation 5 not yet a part of this year's version of the annual video game event.
Sony Launches Limited Edition Blue PlayStation 4
Sony's Days of Play sale will run from June 8 to June 18, offering discounts on PlayStation 4 hardware and software.
The most high-profile item in this year's Days of Play sale, however, is the limited edition PlayStation 4 that will come in the Days of Play Blue color. The console, which will be sold for $299.99, will come with a 1 TB hard drive, the iconic PlayStation buttons and log emblazoned in gold at the top surface, and a matching DualShock 4 wireless controller.
According to Sony, the Days of Play Blue PlayStation 4 will only be available for a limited time, without providing a specific end date.
The limited edition blue PlayStation 4 for this year's Days of Play follows the gold PlayStation 4 from last year's edition of the sale.
