The PlayStation Summer Sale(Opens in a new window) is still going strong, and a second wave of titles has been added, including recent releases such as Hogwarts Legacy, Stray, and Dead Space (Remake). If you’re like me, then you prefer to own a physical disc when possible—and you’re in luck, because there are deals available for those as well.

For those who haven’t taken the plunge and upgraded to the PlayStation 5 console, I personally think it’s well worth the money, and thousands of gamers would agree with me. No one can say if or when the PS5 Pro will launch or how that will affect the price of the original format. What we do know is that the PlayStation 5 is a fantastic machine that offers 8K resolution, ray-tracing technology, much faster loading times over the PS4 console, and a huge library of next-gen games that are as visually spectacular as they are fun.

PlayStation DualSense Wireless Controller

Sony’s DualSense controllers help keep you immersed in the game, with intuitive haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that simulate varying types of force and tension. The built-in speaker can even project sounds from your console to bring the action closer than ever, and it can double as a microphone should you lack a headset. It’s available in Starlight Blue, Cosmic Red, Galactic Purple, Nova Pink, Gray Camouflage, and the classic Black or White, so you’re bound to find a color to love. Grab your favorite for only $49.00.

Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 – Launch Edition (PS5 Pre-Order)

While this isn’t technically a deal, you can snag some extras for one of the most anticipated games of 2023. Pre-ordering the Launch Edition nets you (see what I did there?) in-game content, including:

  • Arachknight Suit for Peter early unlock with three color variants

  • Shadow-Spider Suit for Miles early unlock with three color variants

  • Web Grabber gadget early unlock

  • +3 Skill Points

The game isn’t scheduled to launch until October 20, 2023, so to tide you over until then, you should check out Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales – Ultimate Edition. Starring the titular Miles Morales, the game has you web-slinging through the city and learning new and unique powers while making use of the quick, action-packed combat style you’ve come to know and love.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a cat? That’s a rhetorical question: Of course you have. Stray is a third-person adventure game that places you in the paws of a stray cat wandering through the derelict streets of a cyberpunk city. You’ll have to be stealthy to avoid dangers and acrobatic to access high places, as well as do silly cat things such as meow a million times and knock things off ledges. What more could you ask for from a game starring a cat?

Ghost of Tsushima – Director’s Cut

Ghost of Tsushima was released in 2020, and it received high marks from our reviewer for its fast-paced action combat and immersive storytelling. You play as Jin Sakai, an honorable samurai determined to protect Tsushima Island during the first Mongol invasion of Japan. You’ll witness his fall from grace before building him up to be the hero Tsushima Island needs. The Director’s Cut gives you some in-game cosmetics; an expansion for Iki Island, an area available to you once you progress through the story; and access to the Legends Mode, which pads out your game time with online co-op.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits – Deluxe Edition (PS4)

While Kena: Bridge of Spirits has a family-friendly Pixar-esque art style, this labor of love from the two-brother development team, Ember Lab, is as challenging as it is pretty. You play as the titular Kena, a young woman with incredible abilities: to commune with and control spirits and to restore life to a cursed world by freeing it from the deadly Rot. The Deluxe Edition comes with the official digital soundtrack, some digital in-game items, and an exclusive retail sticker sheet. The PS4 version also includes a free PS5 upgrade.
