Walmart nets you big savings on games for Xbox, PS4, and Switch

Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle: Rabbid Peach Character Spotlight | Gameplay Trailer | Ubisoft [US]

March is a very popular month for new video game releases, including big-name games like Devil May Cry 5 and The Division 2, but if you’re looking to save some cash on slightly older games, Walmart has plenty of great deals for you — and it doesn’t matter if you’re on Xbox, PlayStation, or  Switch.

Right now at Walmart, you can get Red Dead Redemption 2 on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4 for just $40. It’s one of the best games of 2018, with a main story that can easily take more than 50 hours to complete, and it includes access to the multiplayer portion Red Dead Online.

If you’re in the mood to play another Rockstar game, you can also pick up Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4 for just $15, or on Xbox One for $18. The games feature a first-person perspective, as well as access to Grand Theft Auto Online. Despite being more than five years old, the mode is still regularly updated.

The open-world action game Just Cause 4 can also be yours on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4 for $36. Set in a massive environment filled with lightning storms and tornadoes, Just Cause 4 lets you destroy nearly anything you see with an arsenal of powerful weapons and vehicles.

The Nintendo Switch is one of the best-selling game consoles right now, and Walmart has plenty of savings on some of its biggest titles, as well. You can currently get the Super Mario Odyssey starter pack for $53 and the package includes a strategy guide. Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker is on sale for $35, and the excellent Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle is available from multiple sellers on Walmart’s website for under $35. The game blends the strategy and battle tactics of the XCOM series with the delightful Mushroom Kingdom, then throws in a dose of Ubisoft’s Rabbids characters to create a surreal and wacky experience.

With all those new games, you’re going to need some more controllers so your friends can join in on the fun. Walmart is also offering the Neon Red and Neon Blue Joy-Con two-pack for $69, a nice savings off its standard $79 price. The controllers can be placed in the Joy-Con Grip or they can be turned sideways and used on their own.

Now that the PlayStation 5 is a thing, it's a great time to start snapping up some of the best PS4 games, many of which are made by independent developers. Although there are still a few titles missing, pretty much all of the best indie games are on the PS4.

The lines of what is and isn't an indie game seem to have blurred, but typically, we identify them as games that aren't financially backed by a large publisher. These games are often smaller in scope but excel at having innovative ideas.

The best racing games for the PS4

The PlayStation brand of consoles has always had a strong tie to the racing genre. Each console has had a great mix of exclusive and third-party racing titles that looked and played fantastic on the hardware. The PlayStation 4 was the biggest success Sony had since the PS2, but at the same time, seemed to have far fewer pure racing games released on the system. All of Sony's marketing and promotion shifted during this generation to its big first-party exclusives like The Last of Us Part 2, God of War, and Ghost of Tsushima, with little to no love being shown to the racing fans.

Even though Sony itself wasn't pushing the genre, the PS4 has some of the best racing games ever developed, ready for you to set a new course record on. The number to choose from is a little overwhelming, but we've culled the pack down to only the fastest, brightest, and, most importantly, most fun racing games the system has to offer. Racing as a genre is broader than some people may think, so we've included a little bit of everything to help you find a game that matches your speed.
