"With 79 million PS4s sold around the world and more than 80 million monthly active users on PlayStation Network, we've built a huge community of gamers who can play together on Fortnite and all online titles". Earlier today, the makers of the PS4 and PS4 Pro announced the PlayStation Hits Collection that will contain the system's top-selling games at a new price point of $19.99.
The PlayStation Hits range launches almost five years after the PS4; meanwhile, though no official announcement has been made, the PlayStation 5 is expected in 2020 or even 2019 according to current interpretations of tech manufacturer scheduling.

The original PlayStation debuted in 1994 with a Greatest Hits range following in 1997, three years before the wildly successful PlayStation 2 arrived in 2000; the PS2's Greatest Hits launched in 2006. The former president of Daybreak Game Company (which used to be called Sony Online Entertainment) bluntly stated that the decision is one about money.
As for which games you can expect to see on the PlayStation Hits, they include Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, The Last of Us Remastered, Ratchet and Clank, Yakuza 0, LittleBigPlanet 3, Metal Gear Solid V, Street Fighter V, and more.
