Today’s best deals: PlayStation Days of Play sale, SanDisk storage, and more
Ars Technica

The time has come for another Dealmaster. Our latest roundup of the best tech deals from around the web is led by various deals on PlayStation games and gear. That’s because Sony kicked off its annual late-spring “Days of Play” sale, which the company says will run through June 8.

In general, the number of noteworthy deals here isn’t quite as vast as what we highlighted from Epic’s PC-focused Mega Sale over the weekend: Unlike years past, there are no discounts on PlayStation Plus subscriptions—likely due to Sony’s ongoing revamp of that online service—some well-regarded PS5 exclusives like Returnal and Demon’s Souls aren’t on sale, and a few of the included PS4 games are at prices we’ve seen fairly frequently. Many of them will be included with PS Plus’ new upgrade tiers, if you plan on paying for that.

Still, there are some deals worth your attention. If you need a spare DualSense controller for the PS5, for instance, all colors of that gamepad are down to $59, which is a $10 or $15 discount depending on which model you choose and only a couple of dollars from the lowest price we’ve tracked. The colorful action game Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is down to a new low of $40, while Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection, another PS5 exclusive that remasters the action flick-style shooters Uncharted 4 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, is discounted to $30, another new low. Other hits like MLB The Show 22 (Nintendo Switch version included) and The Last of Us Part II have received substantial discounts; you can see our full list of worthwhile deals from Sony’s sale below.

Our roundup also includes a few good discounts from a one-day Amazon sale on SanDisk storage gear. SanDisk’s 400GB Ultra microSD card, for instance, is available for a new low of $36; its U1-rated speeds are far from the fastest you can buy, but for devices like the Nintendo Switch that don’t need the extra performance, it’s a good value for the amount of space you’re getting. Beyond that, we’ve also got lower-than-usual prices on Apple’s wireless MagSafe Charger and MacBook Air, Hulu and Plex subscriptions, the Xbox Series S, a board game we like in Terraforming Mars: Ares Expedition, and much more.
