In a bid to maintain its strong sales momentum, Sony has rolled out a new initiative for PlayStation 5 (PS5) enthusiasts. As the PS5 approaches its third anniversary this November, Sony is ensuring that the console remains a top choice for gamers worldwide.
A Generous Offer
Despite facing challenges such as component shortages and the ongoing pandemic, the PS5 has performed exceptionally well in the market, with over 40 million units sold globally. This impressive figure places the PS5 among the top 20 best-selling consoles of all time. To keep the momentum going, especially with the 2023 holiday season on the horizon, Sony has introduced a new “Upgrader” program.
This program, which has been discreetly launched by PlayStation, allows new PS5 owners to select a free game from an extensive list. Notably, this list predominantly features PS5 PlayStation exclusives, including blockbuster titles like “The Last of Us Part 1,” “God of War Ragnarok,” and both of Insomniac’s Spider-Man games. With the offer set to conclude on October 20, 2023, gamers are likely to gravitate towards these popular choices.
The program offers a choice of 12 games, encompassing nearly every exclusive PlayStation title released on the PS5 to date.
The “Death Stranding Director’s Cut” is also available as an option.
Eligibility is restricted to new PS5 owners, but the exact start date of the program remains unclear.
To check eligibility, users can visit the PS Store on their console, where a banner detailing the offer should be visible.
Only US PS5 owners with an active PSN account and aged 18 or above can avail of this offer.
Sony’s latest initiative is a testament to its commitment to providing value to its gaming community. By offering a free game, Sony not only incentivizes new purchases but also showcases its rich library of exclusive titles. As the holiday season approaches, it will be interesting to see how this program influences PS5 sales and user engagement.
Sony’s PS5 has sold over 40 million units globally.
The “Upgrader” program allows new PS5 owners to choose a free game from a list of exclusives.
Eligibility criteria include being a US resident, having an active PSN account, and being 18 years or older.
