Horizon Call of the Mountain is the PSVR2’s big launch title and the first spin-off for Sony’s Horizon series. This VR title is more of a Horizon-themed amusement park ride than a standalone Horizon adventure, but it’s still a very impressive new look into the series’ techno-dystopia and is a visual masterpiece.

We loved Gran Turismo 7 when it launched in 2022, and racing fans will love the additional subversiveness that comes with the VR version. Take a turn too wide and scrape against the wall? You’re going to feel those vibrations through the headset.

The PSVR2’s secret weapon is actually a sequel to an obscure PlayStation 2 launch game. Fantavision 202X is a firework puzzle game that really thrives in VR — it turns a pretty standard puzzle game into a cinematic experience where you will feel like “a conductor crafting a visual symphony.”

Village isn’t the best entry in the long-running Resident Evil series, but it’s still a blast in VR. Resident Evil Village works best when it’s serving up atmospheric exploration that cleverly expands on the franchise’s puzzle box roots. Strap on your headset and try to survive.

Tetris Effect is a trippy, cinematic version of the classic puzzler, complete with sizzling sound effects and smooth animations for each individual piece.

No Man’s Sky VR is an immersive experience that takes players on a journey through an endless universe of procedurally generated planets, creatures, and space anomalies. This game is a great example of the possibilities of VR, allowing players to feel like they are actually exploring the vastness of space. The game’s mechanics, such as flying spacecraft and discovering new worlds, will take some getting used to in VR form, but it’s totally worth it.

A kayaking simulator might not have been at the top of your to-play list on your new $550 Vr headset, but we’re here to tell you that it needs to be. It’s a surprisingly robust showcase of what the PSVR2 is capable of, both in terms of visuals and its controls. Part fitness game, part National Geographic documentary, this title is a worthwhile VR experience despite it not being a typical game subject.

Pretty much all consoles require some form of subscription service to be able to access multiplayer online, and the Xbox Series X and Series S are no different. Just like PS Plus, Xbox has the Game Pass system, which not only gives you online access it also provides you with a bunch of different games to play as well, so it's not all that bad. Not only that, but there is a tier that unlocks the full Game Pass game library on PC as well and lets you stream games if you don't have a powerful gaming PC. Also, be sure to check out these great Xbox Series S and X deals while you're here.

Best PlayStation Plus Deals: Save on Essential, Plus and Premium
Best PS Plus deals

The PlayStation 5, much like the PlayStation 4 before it, is a very popular gaming console, but it does require a subscription service to have access to online multiplayer, unlike a gaming PC where that's not necessary. To that end, Sony created the PlayStation Plus (PS Plus) subscription service, with various tiers giving you different rewards and includes the basic subscription tier, which also adds new games every month for you to check out for free. Besides the basic Essential tier, there is also the Extra and Premium tiers, both of which have a couple of extra add-ons that might be worth grabbing. While you're here, be sure also to check out these excellent PS5 game deals and PlayStation deals that include some great games and accessories you can get for a great price.
What is PlayStation Plus?
Along with online multiplayer and other in-game network features, a PlayStation Plus Essential membership grants you access to exclusive discounts and other promotions. Perhaps the most notable benefit of PlayStation Plus is that every month, Sony gives subscribers one PlayStation 5 and two PlayStation 4 games that are free to download. You have one month to add these free PlayStation Plus games to your library.

After that, these titles are yours to keep so long as you have an active PlayStation Plus subscription. The free-to-download games are generally pretty good (they are often some of the best PS4 games that have been out for a little while), and these alone justify the cost of PS Plus even for people who don't do a lot of online gaming.

Acer Nitro 5 gaming laptop -- $751, was $950

The Acer Nitro 5 is a good gaming laptop to consider if you’re looking for some value. It has internal hardware that’s hard to find at such a great price, including a 12th-generation Intel processor with eight cores, 16GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card, which is an entry-level GPU. These work together to make your gaming experience immersive and smooth, and a 512GB solid-state drive makes for a lot of space to store your favorite PC games. You also get an impressive 17.3-inch screen that runs at FHD and a 144Hz refresh rate, although the RTX 3050 might struggle with that without graphical setting compromises.
