Ghost of Tsushima

Let Dad live out his Samurai fantasy in this open-world feudal japan epic from Sucker Punch Productions. Ghost of Tsushima tells the story of Jin in his quest to reclaim his home, the isle of Tsushima in which he must make the most difficult decision of his life: honour the tradition and customs of his samurai upbringing and maintain a fight he cannot win, or deviate from his samurai path to protect the island and its people by any means necessary.

Marvel’s Iron Man

Has Dad always wanted to be a superhero, now he can be! With Marvel’s Iron Man VR, he can don the PlayStation VR headset to suit up as the Armoured Avenger in an original Iron Man adventure! Using two PlayStation® Move motion controllers, Dad can fire up Iron Man’s Repulsor Jets and blast into the skies with an arsenal of iconic Iron Man gear at his fingertips, facing off against one of Iron Man’s greatest foes in high stakes, action-packed battles along the way!

The Last of Us Part II

The sequel to one of PlayStation’s biggest games of all time, immerse Dad in a post-apocalyptic story and journey for Justice through the eyes of Joel and Ellie in The Last of Us Part II.
