Console and Accessory Deals

This is one of the best outright discounts we’ve seen for the Sony PlayStation 5 (8/10, WIRED Recommends). We reviewed the original version; this discount is for the Slim version, which has more storage and a slightly different design than the original. The console is fantastic overall, with incredible graphics and a DualSense controller that helps make gaming experiences more immersive. For $50 less, you can get the PS5 Digital Edition (on sale for $400). This may be a better pick if your gaming library is largely digital. You can always add on an external disc drive for around $80, though we think it’s worth shelling out the extra $50 for the included disc drive version—it’ll save you money in the long run, as opposed to buying the drive separately. Finally, it’s worth mentioning that if you purchase through Sony directly, you’ll get 12 months of Netflix Premium for free.

The Sony PSVR 2 (8/10, WIRED Recommends) comes with some sticker shock, considering the fact that it costs as much as a new console. But this is one of the best deals we’ve seen for the headset, and if you’re into virtual reality gaming, this is an excellent option. It’s easy to use and comfortable to wear, and the games library is always expanding. Check out our Best PlayStation VR Games guide for a list of our favorites. Note that for $50 more, you can get the Sony PSVR 2 bundled with Horizon Call of the Mountain—it’s a fun flagship with many immersive elements. Note that if you purchase through Sony directly, you’ll get a year of Netflix Premium for free.

Add some razzle-dazzle to your console with these discounted covers. The deal isn’t all that incredible, but the color selection sure is. Installation is easy—just pop off the white panel that came with your console and slot in the new one. Our list of the Best PS5 Accessories has more picks.

Game and Subscription Deals

This is one of the Best PlayStation 5 Games you can play. You’ll get to fight baddies as both Peter Parker and Miles Morales (though not simultaneously). Combat is fluid, and the graphics are downright cinematic. Read more about the game in our glowing review, and be sure to check out our list of tips before you start slinging and swinging.

By now, you’ve probably played The Last of Us: Part II (WIRED Review). If you haven’t, first of all, what are you doing with your life, and second of all, now’s the time—it’s on sale for $40, a $20 discount. If you haven’t yet played the sequel, you can also pick it up for cheaper than usual. It follows in the original’s footsteps—sometimes well, sometimes poorly—and takes place four years after the first game ends. It’s gruesome and gratuitously violent. We still think it’s worth playing.

This excellent title dives deeper into narrative details than previous games in the series, resulting in what we think is a better and more well-rounded experience. God of War: Ragnarök also has more than 60 accessibility options. It’s a game well worth your time, especially if you’ve played others in the series, and especially at this price.
