Key PlayStation 5 games have already seen their prices slashed ahead of the next-gen console’s launch this November.
Twitter user Jim Crikey posted an email received from UK retailer Base, an online storefront known for games, gadgets and more, that revealed the price decrease of multiple launch-day PS5 games.
In the email, Demon’s Souls, Sackboy: A Big Adventure, Destruction All Stars and Godfall were all seen with decreased prices. Demon’s Souls was cut from £69.99 to £63.85, Destruction All Stars was cut to the same price, Sackboy: A Big Adventure was cut from £59.99 to £56.85 and Godfall was cut from £69.99 to £58.85.
Just had an e mail from Base highlighting some mild PS5 game price drops. Is this something we're going to see across the online shopping board? pic.twitter.com/nzqDd4a0J1

With PS5 games retailing at $70 in the US, unfair retail exchange rates have caused titles to become £70 instead of the properly exchanged £55. Perhaps, this is retailers properly converting prices, maybe it’s not. Who knows? Not me!
