Some of the PlayStation 4’s biggest sellers are about to join Sony’s budget-minded PlayStation Hits line, the PlayStation Blog announced. Games like Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Ratchet & Clank (2016), and more will be re-released at $19.99 USD (and starting there in Canada) beginning Thursday, June 28th. This also affects digital pricing on the PlayStation Network.

The starting line-up of PlayStation Hits include:

  • Bloodborne
  • Driveclub
  • Infamous: Second Son
  • Killzone: Shadow Fall
  • Little Big Planet 3
  • Ratchet & Clank
  • The Last of Us Remastered
  • Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End
  • Battlefield 4
  • Doom
  • Project Cars
  • Street Fighter V
  • Yakuza Kiwami
  • Yakuza Zero
  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain

As you can see, it’s a solid list of some of PlayStation 4’s most popular, critical hits. Some of the roster, like Infamous, Killzone, and Battlefield 4 go all the way back to the system’s launch window from late 2013 to early 2014. The latest releases go back to 2016, including the multi-million seller Uncharted 4.

All of Sony’s past home consoles have been graced with budget line re-releases. Greatest Hits lines are a budget-conscious way for consumers to check out games they might’ve missed when they were pricier. Enterprising consumers have been able to find many of these games for well under $20 long before, but now they’re returning to retail with a brand new label on the box. Sony promises more titles will join the line-up in the future.
