We’ve rounded up some of the best PS5 game deals, and if you see a deal that you like, you have to click that Buy Now button immediately as some of these discounts won’t last long. All of the games below appear on our list of the best PS5 games for 2023.

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 Midnight Suns: Enhanced Edition — $30, was $70

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 — $33, was $40

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.

Final Fantasy XVI — $50, was $70

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) — $51, 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.

Diablo IV: Cross-Gen Bundle —$63, 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.

The 5 best PlayStation Portal alternatives in 2024
The Logitech G Cloud Gaming Handheld sits on a stack of comics.

The PlayStation Portal is a unique device. Designed to give you remote access to your PS5, it's a powerful streaming gadget that lets you take your favorite games with you while away from the big screen. Equipped with a massive 8-inch LCD screen and capable of playing games at 60fps in 1080p, it's one of the best ways to remotely access your PS5 games.

However, PlayStation Portal isn't perfect. For one, some users have noted that its performance is less than stellar when used outside your home network. You also can't store games on it, with the device intended to remotely stream titles from your PS5. And, as you'd expect from something called the PlayStation Portal, it'll only let you access PlayStation games with no options to play titles on PC, Xbox, or other platforms.
