Sony snagged some very good holiday deals on digital video games for PS5 and PS4, as well as PS5 accessories, such as the DualSense controller. I won’t list all the game deals available on the PlayStation Store, but here’s the best way to frame the significance of the game discounts: You can get three PS5 exclusive games like for example Ratchet & Clank: Rift apart, Returnand Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, for less than $100 ($30 each). That’s a far cry from the original $70 cost for just one of these titles. Newer games, such as Horizon Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7, are a bargain at $39.89 each for the PS5 versions. And then there’s the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collectionwhich costs just $19.89.
On the hardware, GameStop, Amazon and Best Buy sell any color of the DualSense controller for $49.99 ($20 off or more depending on color). This gamepad also works great on PC, in case you’re just looking for extras. I’m a fan of the blue, pink and purple models, but they all look great in their own way. Previous discounts were $10 off, so this is a pretty big deal.
Meta has launched a Black Friday bundle of its Quest 2 virtual reality headset that has 128 GB and comes with two games. It costs $50 less than usual, priced at $349.99, but it includes Defeat Saber (a normal shot after the $100 price hike in the summer) and Resident Evil 4 VR spell. You can buy this bundle from a number of retailers, including Amazon and Best Buy.
Unlike the earlier Chromecast models, this 2020 model comes with an easy-to-use remote control. The Chromecast supports 4K resolution with Dolby Vision HDR and Atmos sound if you have the right speakers. If you’re trying to decide which set-top streamer to buy, it’s a great value for the price.
