Best PS5 game deals: discounts on the best games of 2023

If you’ve just picked up a new PlayStation 5, then you’re probably looking for some great video game deals to help pad out your library, especially since modern AAA games cost an arm and a leg. Luckily, there are a lot of great deals to be had, even on some of the best PS5 Games on the market, as well as some older stuff, so you have a whole host of options to pick from. On the other hand, if you haven’t bought a PS5 yet, you may want to check out one of these PS5 deals, as well as a few other PlayStation deals for accessories and the like.

Marvel Midnight Suns: Enhanced Edition — $20, was $30

Marvel: Midnight Suns is an XCOM-like where you combat the forces of evil with an array of heroes, not agents. While the game was released around the same time as Marvel Snap, and also features cards, don’t think of it as a quick pick-me-up game. Instead, it features a full-length campaign. The enhanced edition includes post-launch DLC content, giving you a more complete experience, as well as premium skins, so you can see your favorite hero in the style you like.

Stray — $22, was $30

Forget Starfield for a moment, what if you were able to explore a cybercity… as a cat? Our Stray review highlighted the game as being way more than a meme. In it, your hero — none other than an orange stray cat — explores a world that is “socially conscious” and has a “clear environmentalist streak.” All the while your cat exhibits cute behaviors that really add to the realism of the game. Be sure to check this game out soon, because rumor has it that there is a movie adaptation coming out in the future.

Deathloop — $25, was $60

If you’re looking for a shooter game that blurs the line between single player and multiplayer, try out Deathloop, created by the same studio that made Dishonored. Played from a main story perspective, it could almost feel like a pure assassin murder simulator, with many targets to find. Of course, there would still be a big catch thrown into the mayhem: somebody is out there trying to kill you. And that’s where multiplayer comes in! Invade others’ games and try to end their day before they knock out their target or, if you allow multiplayer, add a whole new layer of difficulty to the campaign playthrough.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales — $27, was $50

If you’re a fan of Spider-Man, then you should absolutely grab yourself a copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales if you haven’t played it already. Not only is it one of the best Spider-Man games out there, but it’s an absolute blast to play with a much more engrossing story with a deep narrative. The gameplay is also a lot more fun, with the spider-web swinging mechanic being very fluid and one of the best in any Spider-Man game, so it’s well worth grabbing if you’ve always wanted to live the Spider-Man fantasy.

Dead Space — $30, was $70

The original Dead Space was one of the quintessential sci-fi horror games, and the franchise has certainly gone quite far if you consider all the comics and films that were made. Luckily, if you missed out on the original game, you can relive it in the updated Dead Space remake, which is not only a graphical overhaul, but also updates the mechanics and feel of the game to modern standards. It’s an absolute treat to play, and this deal makes it a must-grab if you’re a fan of horror.

Diablo IV: Cross-Gen Bundle —$30, was $70

Diablo IV is Blizzard’s latest entry in the Diablo franchise, coming after the mobile game Diablo Immortal. Our Diablo IV review puts character creation and customization, alongside exploration, at the forefront of the title’s charms. While these remain big boons to the game’s delights, as people are “finishing” the game, inevitable chatter about the end game come into play. This is a game that people want to sink hundreds of hours into. With the advent of seasons we can expect to see changeups every so often, giving players what they want in regard to this. Season 1 actually seemed to remove some of the hardest endgame content due to balance issues. We remain excited to see what the future of Diablo IV holds as the second season comes out this October.

God of War Ragnarök — $40, was $70

While a couple of years old at this point, God of War Ragnarök is still an excellent game and sequel to the previous God of War that helped launch the PS5. The combat is a ton of fun, especially with the epic enemies and bosses, and while the story isn’t as good as the previous game, it still stands pretty well on its own merits. As such, if you’ve played the previous game and never gotten a chance to play the sequel, this deal lets you grab it for a much more reasonable price so you can catch up with the story.

Final Fantasy XVI — $41, was $60

Final Fantasy XVI (aka FF16) is an action RPG that doesn’t really need an introduction, because it already has one in the form of a long list of Final Fantasy games before it. It’s known as a great entry point into RPGs that gives you a lot of freedom to choose your own combat style. Additionally, the games’ characters have styles that are best described as quirky, with features such as spiky hair and trinkets that border on the bizarre, so always be on the lookout for them at cosplay conventions.

The Last of Us (Part 1) — $45, was $70

Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us is a series so loved that it became (in a very internet sense of the word) “controversial” when characters’ development differed from the ideas of fans. Take that as you will, but it is at least a sign that the first game in the series did a good job of bringing people into a world of realistic people. Part of that was via storytelling and part of that was due to the gameplay, which has a simulated “co-op” mechanic to it. In any event, this is a “zombie” game (what The Last of Us’s “infected” essentially are) that is almost never referred to as such; it’s really just all about the story.

Mortal Kombat 1 — $49, was $70

It’s hard to understate how interesting the story of Mortal Kombat 1 is, which somewhat reboots the whole franchise, although we don’t want to give away too many spoilers here. Besides the story, the combat is really excellent, and a lot of fun, and the overall visuals are gorgeous. The online play is also quite a bit of fun, so if you’ve always enjoyed the competitive aspect of Mortal Kombat, this should be right up your alley. While the deal isn’t as significant as we would like, it’s still good enough to warrant a recommendation for die-hard Mortal Kombat fans.
