PS4 and PS5 digital games are discounted during Sony’s Summer Sale

Until August 18, a vast selection of digital PS4 and PS5 games are discounted through Sony’s online store. You can get these discounts through the consoles themselves, through the mobile app, or by logging in and buying them via the website here. There are 1,264 games and other types of content for sale, and now is a great time to load up on PS5 exclusive games that rarely get a discount, as well as newer PS4 releases that are compatible on the newer console. Some of the standouts are: Return for $49.69 (30 percent off the original price), Demon Souls for $49.69 (30 percent off), Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales for $35 (usually $50), and Hitman 3 for $30 (usually $60).

The new Legendary Mass Effect Edition that includes the remastered trilogy of sci-fi action RPG games costs $45 (25 percent off), and the co-op adventure It takes two is $30 (from $40).

Woot sells brand new Pixel 2 XL models with 128GB of storage in the once coveted “Panda” colorway, with white and black on the back, or in black. Both go for $135, which is a good deal for the specs you get, and because it works with most carriers, and because the bootloader is unlocked for easier software flashing. Keep in mind that Google’s Pixel 2 XL will no longer receive security updates or other software tweaks, but if that doesn’t bother you, this could be a solid phone to pick up.

Google’s Pixel 2 XL trumps Android 11 software and no longer receives updates of any kind, but it’s still not a bad phone if you want an OLED display, decent speakers, and a solid camera.
