Newegg slashes prices on PS4 accessories and AAA games like Anthem

Image used with permission by copyright holder

Newegg is currently running deals on PlayStation 4 games, including Anthem, as well as popular accessories like the DualShock 4 controller. New video games, particularly popular ones, can typically set you back $60 for several months after their initial launch. If you’re looking to break that tradition and score some huge savings, however, you’re going to want to check out these discounted prices.

Using the promotional code “EMCTWVA35” at checkout, you can save 25 percent on some of the biggest AAA games of 2018 and 2019. This includes Anthem,Kingdom Hearts 3, Tom Clancy’s The Division 2, and Metro Exodus for $45. Red Dead Redemption 2 is down to $38, and you can nab God of War or Spider-Man for only $30. Some of these titles are available on PlayStation 4, while others are on sale for Xbox One.

Accessories are also eligible for the discount, and several first-party products are available on Newegg, as well. This includes the standard DualShock 4 controller for $45, and the PlayStation Gold Wireless Headset for $75. Multiple other headsets are also on sale, and there are several sticks for fighting game players looking to take their game to the next level. This could include Dead or Alive 6, which is, of course, also available at a discount right now!

What’s so wonderful about Newegg’s promotion is how many acclaimed games it includes. Metro Exodus is among the best shooters of 2019 thus far, building on the formula of its predecessors while introducing new open-ended areas and customization options. The Division 2 improved tremendously on the original game, with a more engaging and varied campaign mode and enough endgame content to keep players busy after they play the final mission. We even loved the long-delayed Kingdom Hearts III, which goes completely off the rails as it reaches the climax of a story combining Disney and Final Fantasy characters.

These deals should give you enough saved cash to possibly afford another recent game, such as Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. In less than a month, Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios are also set to launch Mortal Kombat 11, the latest entry in the long-running gore-filled series. It can certainly be overwhelming, but it’s better than the alternative of not having enough games to play, or having only bad games in your library!

Don’t forget to grab this absurdly fun game on PS Plus this month
A whale opens its mouth in Nobody Saves the World.

While it's not yet clear what most of 2024 will look like for PlayStation owners, Sony is starting the year strong. Next week, it'll drop The Last of Us Part II Remastered as its first major exclusive. A few weeks later, it'll dip into live service with Helldivers 2. The rest of the year is a bit of a mystery from there, but it looks like PS Plus will help fill in some potential gaps.

To kick off 2024, PlayStation owners can claim three games at no additional charge with their PS Plus Essential subscription. The list is headlined by Game Awards nominee A Plague Tale: Requiem and the ultra-stylish Evil West. Both games are worth adding to your library, but there's one title that you especially can't miss: the absurdly entertaining Nobody Saves the World.

The best fighting games for PS5
street fighter 6 preview summer game fest screenshotter  youtube streetfighter6 announcetrailer 2 24

There's an entire generation of gamers out there who cut their teeth in the old arcades. Standing side by side with your opponent was the only option for real player-versus-player competition back in the day, and the king of the competitive genres was undoubtedly fighting games. The simple premise of two fighters squaring off against each other spawned some of the most popular and successful gaming franchises of all time. To this day, games that once made their debut in arcade cabinets are releasing new sequels for your home consoles to play from the comfort of your own sofa.

Whether against the computer, online, or playing locally on your couch, fighting games offer a pure test of skill that many compare to games like chess. Unlike chess, though, each fighting game has its own rules, systems, matchups, and more to learn. Factor in things like pure 2D versus 3D fighters, extra modes, and character rosters, and any two fighting games can look almost entirely different. Plus, there's always the art style to consider, too. The PS5's hardware is perfect for running fighting games, which demand rock-solid performance, and it's home to all the biggest franchises, from legacy series like Street Fighter and Tekken to one-offs like Dragon Ball FighterZ. If you want to throw down in a one-on-one test of skill, there are the best fighting games for PS5.
