Save on a selection of excellent PS4 and PS5 games in the new PlayStation Store Essential Picks sale.

Sony kicks off a brand new month with a brand new PlayStation Store sale. The Essential Picks promotion features a blockbuster collection of games, many of which are PS4 and PS5 exclusives.

AAA highlights include Persona 5 Royal, God of War, The Last of Us Part II, and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Looking deeper, the adorably cute – and frequently disturbing – Bugsnax is worth experiencing, as is the thought-provoking co-op adventure, It Takes Two.


Other picks include Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, Yakuza: Like a Dragon, and the recently released JRPG homage, Cris Tales.

The PSN Essential Picks sale runs from today until September 15, 2021. Visit the PlayStation Store in your region for the complete list of sale titles and regional discounts. Here are some more sale recommendations.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
