This is one of the absolute best discounts we’ve seen for the Sony PlayStation 5 (8/10, WIRED recommends). We reviewed the original version; This discount is for the Slim version, which has more storage and a slightly different design than the original. The console is fantastic overall, with incredible graphics and a DualSense controller that helps make gaming experiences more immersive. For $50 less, you can get the PS5 Digital Edition (on sale for $400). This may be a better choice if your game library is mostly digital. You can always add a external drive for around $80, although we think it’s worth shelling out the extra $50 for the version with the included drive; It will save you money in the long run, rather than purchasing the unit separately. Finally, it’s worth mentioning that if you buy directly through Sony, you’ll get 12 months of Netflix Premium for free.

The Sony PSVR 2 (8/10, WIRED recommended) comes with a few surprises, considering the fact that it costs as much as a new console. But this is one of the best deals we’ve seen on headsets, and if you like virtual reality gaming, this is a great option. It’s easy to use and convenient to carry, and the game library is always expanding. Check out our guide to the best PlayStation VR games for a list of our favorites. Note that for $50 more, you can get the Sony PSVR 2 included with Mountain called horizon—It’s a fun flagship with many immersive elements. Note that if you purchase directly through Sony, you’ll get a year of Netflix Premium for free.

This is one of the best PlayStation 5 games you can play. You’ll be able to fight bad guys like Peter Parker and Miles Morales (although not simultaneously). The combat is fluid and the graphics are downright cinematic. Read more about the game in our glowing review and be sure to check out our list of tips before you start tossing and swinging.

You’ve probably already played The Last of Us: Part II (Wire Review). If you haven’t, firstly, what are you doing with your life and secondly, now is the time? on sale for $40, a $20 discount. If you haven’t played the sequel yet, you can also get it for a cheaper price than usual. It follows in the footsteps of the original (sometimes good, sometimes bad) and takes place four years after the first game ends. It’s gruesome and gratuitously violent. We still think it’s worth playing.

This excellent title goes deeper into narrative detail than previous games in the series, resulting in what we believe is a better, more complete experience. God of War: Ragnarök It also has more than 60 accessibility options. It’s a worthwhile game, especially if you’ve played others in the series, and especially at this price.
