Featured Deal: Horizon Forbidden West (PS4 w/ Free Upgrade to PS5) | $59 | Amazon
The best Sony PlayStation deals are here.
The PS5 has been out in the wild for some months now, but good luck finding one: they’ve been popping in and out of stock at retailers, and they’re likely to remain scarce for months to come. It’s the usual console launch routine, but we wish you well if you’re still on the hunt.
On the other hand, if you’re looking for deals on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 games alike, along with accessories, then you’ll find stellar savings below.
While Nintendo fans were gushing over Breath of the Wild this past generation, PS4 players were falling in love with their own sprawling open-world experience. Horizon Forbidden West is the highly anticipated sequel to that game—Horizon Zero Dawn—and is launching early next month. Now as many are aware of by this point, Sony has bumped the standard price of games upon release from $60 to $70 to combat inflation as well as the ever-expanding scope and cost of making these games. However, many games are still launching on PS4 alongside the hefty new PS5 and those versions are still at our beloved original price of $60. Horizon Forbidden West on PS4 will also come with a free upgrade to the PS5 version, so as long as you don’t care about having the blue PS4 case on your shelf instead of the white PS5 one, you’ll be able to save a cool $10.
It Takes Two | $20
Grab a friend! It Takes Two is out and it’s an excellent co-op experience. The latest from Josef Fares and the team at Hazelight is a platforming rom-com that’s wickedly clever. Every level introduces inventive new mechanics that keep the game fresh. It’s a rare co-op game where both players always have something to do and player two isn’t just a sidekick. Considering how many delays are happening this year, it could end up being one of the year’s top games. If that all sounds appealing, you can get it on PS4 for $20 which comes with free upgrades to the current-gen. The game does not come with a friend, so you will need to find that yourself. Though, your friend will get to play for free as the game only requires one of the two players to own it—even when playing online.
NieR: Automata’s prequel received the remaster treatment and all the modern flairs that go along with it. Automata has received near-universal praise so go check out what came before it. NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is $30 for PS4 with a free upgrade to PS5. Go pick it up.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy | $30-$35
Square Enix’s new adaption of Guardians of the Galaxy follows their middling take on Marvel’s Avengers. While the latter brought on some mixed feelings about a decent single-player experience with a poor attempt at a live service game, Guardians of the Galaxy drops any and all live service elements in favor of a single-player story taking on the role of solely Star-Lord. And it’s actually looking pretty dang good! As Captain of the Guardians, you will be making decisions regarding squabbles among the crew in a morality system not dissimilar to Mass Effect or a Telltale game. What isn’t a moral dilemma is purchasing the game for only $30 on PS4 and $35 on PS5.
Demon’s Souls | $47
The Souls games have been a powerhouse of the past decade of gaming—inspiring an entirely new genre of games all thanks to the first game in the franchise, Dark Souls. What’s that? There was a game before Dark Souls? Interesting. Coming in under the radar, the 2009 release Demon’s Souls sold an estimated 1.7 million while its follow-up, Dark Souls, sold over 25 million copies worldwide. By my calculation, that still leaves at least 23.3 million of you fans who still haven’t played this game. Now is the perfect time to play the game the that started it all in its upgraded glory as the price has dropped by $23 since launch.
Sucker Punch’s open-world samurai game came out last year and it’s one you don’t want to miss. It features a gorgeous world and varied combat for both stealthy and aggressive players. The newly released Ghosts of Tsushima Director’s Cut features all the content from the original release as well as a new chapter in Jin’s story in which you will get to travel to and explore the island of Iki. In addition to the new content, there are some welcomed quality of life updates too. The PS5 version will support haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. You’ll also be able to expect 3D audio enhancements, 4k resolution options, better load times, and 60fps. Lastly, if you select the game’s Japanese voice-over, it will actually be lip-synced.
NBA 2K22 | $20-$25
What’s there to really say, folks? This is the latest in a long line of NBA2K games. You know what’s to be expected here—some better-looking graphics and animations, an updated roster, the usual stuff. The career mode also appears to be set on a giant cruise ship built specifically for basketball so that’s fun. The important thing though is the game is on sale right now. That’s right you can get it on PS4 for just $25 with the PS5 version being discounted down to $28.
Far Cry 6 | $28
Ubisoft’s latest open-world sandbox is here, upping the anty once again by casting Giancarlo Esposito as the entry’s villain, Antón Castillo. This is now the second actor of the Breaking Bad Universe to show off his evil chops in the series as Michael Mando provided the voice and look of Far Cry 2's Vaas, then went on to join Breaking Bad spinoff, Better Call Saul as Nacho. Anyway, I’ve yet to play any of the Far Cry games so pretty much all I know here is Giancarlo Esposito. And that seems to be exactly what the marketing department is going for. My mom saw the commercial and thought he was starring in a new movie coming out. The game is out now and Amazon has the game for $32 off on PS5.
Pick up a Monster from a nearby 7-Eleven and cozy up with the world’s first strand game.

Additional weapons, vehicles, and enemy types plus new locations to explore like firing ranges and racetracks, Of course with that comes extra missions and minigames. It’s $37 on Amazon.
WD Black SN850 SSD—1TB | $186
The PlayStation 5 comes with an 875GB SSD. At first glance, that may sound like a lot. But after factoring in the system software, you’re looking at about 667.2GB of usable space. Then when you consider Call of Duty games are coming in at over 100GB a pop, that SSD is going to fill up fast. Thankfully, the internal storage can be expanded with SSDs available from third parties. WD_BLACK is having a sale at the moment on their SN850 solid-state drives. You can currently get a 1TB SSD for $186. Now you’ll maybe even be able to house both Call of Duty: Vanguard and Battlefield 2042.
