Cyber Monday PS5 live blog: all the best PlayStation 5 deals still available

Refresh

I’ve said it time and time again, but the Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales period is easily the best time to renew your PlayStation Plus subscription – or to get it for the first time – and these PS Plus deals are exactly why.

Right now you can pick up a 12-month PS Plus membership for $39.99 at CD Keys in the US, saving you $20 on its usual $59.99 price tag.

‘But why is now the best time to renew?’, you may ask. Well, picking up a Black Friday or Cyber Monday PS Plus deal means that you don’t have to worry about renewing your membership until next year and, by that time, it’ll be Black Friday/Cyber Monday again and you’ll be able to pick it up at a discount… again! 

It’s a genius tactic that I absolutely stand by. 

Walmart Cyber Monday deals

Walmart has confirmed it will have a PS5 restock on Cyber Monday as part of its Cyber Monday PS5 deals. 

The drop is set to take place on November 29 at 12pm ET but this restock will be exclusive to paying Walmart+ members. That means that 1) you need to have a Walmart+ membership for access and 2) you can’t simply get access by using the Walmart+ free trial (sorry).

You can sign up to Walmart+ for $12.95 a month right now. On top of getting access to the PS5 drop on Cyber Monday, you get access to other free Walmart deals before everyone else, free delivery and a bunch of other benefits. 

If you’re desperately looking for a PS5, but don’t really care about the other benefits to membership, I would suggest grabbing the membership for a month and then cancelling – as that extra $12.95 gives you a better chance of getting a console – though it doesn’t guarantee you’ll get one.

Call of Duty Vanguard best weapons

Call of Duty: Vanguard was only released a few weeks ago, but Walmart is already offering a decent discount on the PS5 version of the game. 

Typically Vanguard would set you back $69.99 (eugh), but Walmart is offering it for $39 right now – saving you $30.

If you’ve been waiting to pick up the latest Call of Duty, then this is a pretty good time. I’m personally not a big CoD fan, so I’ll share with you what the lovely Ural Garrett said about the game in our Call of Duty: Vanguard review:

“Call of Duty: Vanguard uses the last days of WWII to present a promising single-player campaign that ultimately feels half-baked in execution. Thankfully, developer Sledgehammer Games ensures online modes include enough refreshing ideas to keep them from coming off as just another yearly coat of new paint.”

On the hunt for PS5 games? Then GameStop has your back. Right now the retailer is offering up to 60% off a bunch of games including Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Deathloop and Resident Evil Village. 

But that’s not all. GameStop also has a load of PS4 games on offer too which, thanks to backwards compatibility, are playable on PS5. 

So even if you haven’t upgraded to a PS5 yet, these games are pretty-much future-proof – with some even benefiting from enhancements when played on Sony’s latest console.

Cyber Monday PS5 SSD deals are proving popular now that Sony has unlocked the console’s internal SSD bay, allowing users to add more super-fast storage. So if you’re running out of space on your PS5’s internal drive, which is more than likely now that the console’s been on sale for over a year, there’s never been a better time to pick up some additional storage. 

Right now, Best Buy is offering great discount on PS5 SSDs, with the WD Black SN850 1TB now $149.99, the WD Black SN850 1TB with heatsink now $249.99  and the Samsung 980 Pro 1TB $109.99.

If, like me, you’re not quite sure where to start with upgrading your PS5’s internal storage, then our straightforward guide on installing an internal PS5 SSD is a lifesaver.

What’s up, John McCann here – TechRadar’s Global Managing Editor, and huge PlayStation fan – taking over from Vic for the next hour. 

I’ve owned every PlayStation since the PSOne, and something I’ve been acutely aware of over the years is the need for multiple controllers. Not only useful for when my friends come over for some two-player FIFA, but I also find that countless hours playing that and GTA takes a toll on the rubber covering of the joysticks.

With previous generations I usually just started out with the controller included in the box with the console, but the constant use saw my oily fingers wear away the grippy rubber. That, plus the introduction of wireless, rechargeable pads with the PS3 means gaming sessions can be rudely interrupted if the battery runs out.

So, if you want to play your PS5 with mates, prolong the life of your controller, or simply just want to have a second one on charge that you can grab as soon as the other one runs out, you need another DualSense pad in your life.

The DualSense controller is still very new, so you’re not going to find any major discounts.

The good news for those in the UK is you can get £5 off the DualSense at Amazon and at John Lewis.

Unfortunately stock of the controller is harder to come by in the US, and if you do find it you’ll be paying full price – it’s totally worth it though, and with Christmas just around the controller you’ll be thankful of the flexibility a second DualSense affords you.

See the best PS5 DualSense wireless controller deals near you, below.

I’m one of the lucky few to own a PS5, and I am certainly not taking it for granted. I’m making the most of it, and the way to do that is to play games. Lots of games!

With that in mind, we’ve dug up a few more great Cyber Monday PS5 game deals for your to peruse. Enjoy!

Five US PS5 game deals

Five UK PS5 game deals

Epos H3

Man, she looks stressed. (Image credit: EPOS)

What about the things that you put atop your head? What about the EPOS H3 PS5 headset, which is one of our very best PS5 gaming headsets.

“Why is it in the top headsets?” We hear you cry. Well, what about ‘Sleek design’? How about ‘clean and crisp audio’? Do you like something that’s ‘incredibly comfortable’?

Well, that’s why. And if you want to save some money on them, then they’re down to $91.99 at Walmart, all the way from $119.99. How about that, eh?

PS5 SSD

Hello, PlayStation gamers. It’s Adam Vjestica here – TechRadar’s Senior Gaming Writer, and the man responsible for writing all those hard-hitting PS5 op-eds you may have read.

I’ve taken over the Cyber Monday PS5 live blog to bring you the best deals, advice, and general gaming chatter you’ll find anywhere else on the web. That’s a bold claim, I know, but I’m sticking to it.

Even though finding a PS5 in stock remains frustratingly difficult, it’s worth reiterating that Walmart will have a PS5 restock on Cyber Monday at 12 pm ET. You’ll need to be a Walmart Plus member, so sign up now if you want to be in with a chance of nabbing one.

But what if you do own a PS5? Well, if you’ve ever been brave enough to pop off the PS5’s plastic faceplates, you’ll have probably noticed a little metal cover. Underneath that metallic covering lies an empty SSD bay, which is just begging to have some company.

Luckily, you can grab a number of PS5 compatible SSDs this weekend and over Cyber Monday, and it really is easy to install (here’s how to upgrade your PS5 internal storage). 

Right now, Best Buy is offering a great discount on PS5 SSDs, with the WD Black SN850 1TB now $149.99, the WD Black SN850 1TB with heatsink now $249.99, and the Samsung 980 Pro 1TB $109.99.

In the UK, there are also some great PS5-ready SSD deals to be had. The WD_Black SN850 1TB SSD is only £119.98, but you will need to install a heatsink. The GLOTRENDS M.2 Heatsink for £6.39 should do the job nicely.

Here’s a great deal for PlayStation fans. Alan Wake is just $19.99 at Walmart and just £17.99 at Amazon on both PS5 and PS4, and I’m here to tell you that at that price, you really should pick it up.

As I wrote in my Alan Wake Remastered review, “Remedy’s unique spin on the survival horror genre won’t leave you shaking in your boots, but it will keep you on tenterhooks until the very end with its enthralling story and satisfying spin on survival horror action.”

PlayStation fans never got to experience Alan Wake when it was originally released in 2010, as it was an Xbox 360 exclusive. It’s time to find out exactly why so many Xbox fans loved it, then, as it plays and looks better than ever before.

I really should smile more on camera. (Image credit: Future)

It may be the most frivolous PS5 accessory you can buy, but the PlayStation 5 HD Camera will appeal to any gamer who wants to stream to Twitch or YouTube, straight from their PS5. 

I tested the PS5 camera’s chops when streaming to Twitch from the console, and while there are a few caveats to bear in mind, it does a pretty decent job. That’s a good thing, too, as it’s your only choice if you want to broadcast yourself while streaming directly from Sony’s machine.

Surprisingly, the PS5 HD Camera isn’t as steeply discounted as I expected, but there’s still a small saving to be had. UK gamers can grab the PlayStation 5 HD Camera for £44.99 at Amazon and save £5, but unfortunately, it isn’t on sale in the US… at least not yet. 

Resident Evil 8 Village

You’ve probably heard about Tall Lady by now. (Image credit: Capcom)

GameStop has been smashing it when it comes to video game deals, and this $30 discount on Resident Evil Village is another scarily good deal. 

For just $19.99, you can own one of the best PS5 games, which is an absolute steal in my opinion. Resident Evil Village has also been nominated for the coveted ‘Game of the Year’ award at The Game Awards 2021 – if you care about that sort of thing. 

Resident Evil Village is also on sale for £29 at Tesco in the UK, so you can pick it up while doing your weekly shop.

As our Gaming Editor Vic Hood wrote in her Resident Evil Village review: “Resident Evil Village takes the series to new heights, balancing the action of Resident Evil 4 with the deeper narrative approach of Resident Evil 7. This, combined with brilliant use of audio on PS5 and an array of memorable characters, makes it the best modern Resi entry.” High praise indeed. 

Scarlet Nexus

You know those games that you start playing, really enjoy, and then somehow stop playing for some reason or another? That’s Scarlet Nexus for me. I was really engrossed in the game’s intriguing story, gorgeous anime visuals, and satisfying combat mechanics, but sadly got pulled away by other commitments. Hopefully, I can rectify that over Christmas. 

In the US, you can pick up Scarlet Nexus on PS5 for just $36.40, which is a nice saving of 39%. Simply Games in the UK has the game on PS5 and PS4 for £19.99 and £19.85 respectively, which is a superb price for a game that promises at least 30 hours or more from one playthrough.

Scarlet Nexus recently got its own anime series on Funimation, too, so if you really want to invest in the game’s characters and the world, you totally can.

Astro A40 deal

(Image credit: Astro)

If you’re reading this live blog in the US, look away now. I’m about to post a stonking good deal on the Astro Gaming A40 TR Wired Headset + Mixamp Pro and it’s only available in the UK.

Amazon has dropped the price of the Astro A40 TR Wired Headset + Mixamp Pro to just £164.32, which means those who reside in the United Kingdom can save a whopping £85.67. 

Astro has established itself as one of the most trusted headset brands for gamers, as its headsets usually produce impressive sound and are incredibly comfortable to wear. I haven’t tried these myself, but I have owned Astro A50s in the past, and they were excellent.

These cans are compatible with both PS4 and PS5, but to enable voice and game balance on PS5 you will need to buy an HDMI adapter, which is sold separately.

Wait, what are you doing here? (Image credit: Shutterstock/Mohd Syis Zulkipli)

I’m going to take a wild guess here, but I reckon there’s a good chance that if you clicked on this live blog you might be hoping to get some news on the latest PS5 restocks. Right?

Well, there’s good news for US readers. Walmart has announced that it will have a PS5 restock on Cyber Monday, November 29, at 12 pm ET / 9 am PT. You’ll need to be a Walmart Plus member, so sign up now if you want to be in with a chance of grabbing one.

Now, this might get me in trouble with PlayStation fans, but I’m going to suggest an alternative if you can’t find a PS5 during Cyber Monday – the Xbox Series S. Microsoft’s teeny tiny white box was apparently the best selling console during Black Friday, and it’s easy to see why: it’s readily available, affordable, and thanks to Xbox Game Pass you can access hundreds of games to play right away if you subscribe.

Yes, I know this is a PS5 live blog and we don’t really talk about the green team here, but if you want to play Starfield, Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 5, or Sea of Thieves without building a gaming PC, the Xbox Series S makes a fine second console to go alongside your future PS5.

In the US, you can get an Xbox Series S with an additional controller for $349.98, which is a saving of $10. UK gamers can pick up an Xbox Series S with a three month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (3 Months Subscription) for £282.98 at Amazon right now.

If you’re a little curious about what Xbox deals there are currently, check out our Cyber Monday Xbox live blog. There, that’s it, I promise I won’t mention anything about Xbox again.


Black Friday PS5 deals sales

Sackboy: A Big Adventure is one of the best platformers in years. (Image credit: Sony)

I don’t know about you, but no matter how old I get, nothing beats the thrill of playing a genuinely fantastic platformer. Sackboy: A Big Adventure is one of the best platformers I’ve played in years, and more people need to play it.

In my Sackboy: A Big Adventure review, I said the game was “the surprise jewel in Sony’s PS5 launch lineup and a shining example of how to create a kid-friendly, yet challenging platformer that appeals to all ages and abilities.” 

The game has local and online co-op so is perfect to play with family and friends or on your own, and it looks absolutely gorgeous on a 4K display. If you want a palette cleanser from the usual annual sports and FPS titles, Sackboy is the perfect tonic.

You can get Sackboy: A Big Adventure for just $29.83, which is a massive saving of $30.16. You can also pick up this platformer in the UK for £34.99 at Game and save £25.00.

I’ll admit, my basketball knowledge isn’t as good as it used to be (although I did thoroughly enjoy The Last Dance on Netflix). If you’re a fan of B-ball, NBA 2K22 is well worth picking up right now at 50% off.

With near photo-realistic graphics and tons of gameplay modes to dive into, NBA 2K22 is bound to satisfy fans who love to shoot some hoops.

You can get NBA 2K22 for $34.99 at Amazon while stocks last, which is a massive saving of $35. We’re not seeing the same discount in the UK, but hey, remember that great headset deal I posted earlier? Fair is fair. 

PS5 storage

(Image credit: Future)

If you’ve got a large library of digital PS4 games, the last thing you want is to take up your PS5’s precious internal storage space with games that can be held, and played, elsewhere. An external hard drive is a must-have accessory in my opinion, and the WD Black P50 1TB SSD is a fine choice.

Even though it’s not as fast as an NVMe SSD, any PS4 game you have installed on this external drive will load far quicker than it ever did on your old PlayStation 4. You can also use this drive to store PS5 games, but you won’t be able to play them, sadly – you’ll need to transfer them back to the PS5’s internal storage. 

The WD Black P50 1TB is $189.99 at Best Buy, which is a saving of $60. In the UK, the Samsung T5 1 TB is just £108.20, which is a discount of £41.79. I personally own two of these Samsung drives and have them hooked up to my PS5 and Xbox Series X. Do I need one for my Xbox Series S? Maybe…

 If you’re interested in other external hard drives, check out our Cyber Monday PS5 external hard drive deals. We’re also rounding up the best Best Buy Cyber Monday deals right now.

Remember when I mentioned Xbox earlier? Well don’t worry, I’m not here to make any more enemies, but I do want to share that I’m also hosting our Nintendo Cyber Monday live blog, which is happening right now.

Did you know that Sony and Nintendo nearly made a console together? Yep, in 1992 the two Japanese giants came together to make a CD-ROM add-on for the SNES, but things didn’t work out. 

A prototype of the “Nintendo PlayStation” sold for $300,000 (£230,700) and makes us think oh what could have been. I don’t think either company will look back with too many regrets, honestly.


PlayStation

If you want a game that really shows off what the PS5 can do and will even impress people who wouldn’t usually look twice at a video game, Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is it. 

With visuals that rival the likes of a Pixar film, this PS5 exclusive is the type of game we’d expect to see come out towards the end of a console generation, not right at the start of one. 

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart takes full advantage of all the PS5’s features: DualSense haptic feedback and adaptive trigger support, 3D audio, and super-fast load times. You can get it for just $49.99 at Amazon, which is a tasty saving of $20. 

Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart is also on sale in the UK. You can grab it for £44.99 at Amazon and save £25

Spider-Man swings into Marvel's Avengers

(Image credit: Square Enix / TechRadar)

Pre-owned games are a great way to save big on physical copies, and it’s even better when you can buy two and get one free!

GameStop has a great selection of titles on offer, including Far Cry 6 for $32.99, Madden NFL 22 for $32.99, and Marvel’s Avengers for just $8.99 on PS5. The lowest-priced title will be the one you get for free and remember this offer applies to pre-owned titles only. 

Of course, if you have a PS5 Digital Edition you won’t be able to take advantage of this deal, but at least you have a slightly nicer-looking console than the disc version. How’s that for positive thinking at 3:35 am?


Gran Turismo 7

(Image credit: Sony)

Here’s something that only UK readers will fully appreciate. Jacamo, a website that was originally famous for selling clothes to larger set gentlemen, now sells tech too. And wouldn’t you know it, they have some deals on right now.

If you’re a racing fan and will be picking up Gran Turismo 7 next year, this Thrustmaster T150 Force Feedback Steering Wheel is now £149.99. I’d love to get a racing wheel myself, but I don’t exactly have the right layout for it currently. 

With this force feedback racing wheel, you can feel the track better, when your tires lock up or when another car slams into the back of you. It makes driving games far more immersive, and the more I write about this deal, the more I’m selling it to myself. *hovers over ‘Add To Bag’*


Returnal

(Image credit: Housemarque / Sony)

I know you didn’t ask, but my favorite game for PS5 is currently on sale. Returnal is punishingly difficult, which made completing it numerous times with only 11 deaths in total all the more satisfying for me. This old dog’s still got it!

If you’re a fan of roguelikes and bullet hell shooters, Returnal combines those two genres with wonderful results. It’s also a great title to showcase the PS5’s 3D audio, as it can really help you pinpoint enemy fire, which is critical when you’re doing everything you can not to die.

While I can’t guarantee you’ll enjoy Returnal as much as I did (opinions are subjective, who knew!), for the price of just £39.99 in the UK, which is 43% off, it’s worth trying your luck.


Deathloop

(Image credit: Arkane/Bethesda)

Here’s another game that, despite getting countless perfect scores from many review outlets, won’t be for everyone. I’ve played Deathloop, and while I can see why some people enjoyed it so much, it hasn’t struck the same notes with me. 

It almost makes me wish I would have waited for Cyber Monday because Deathloop is only $24.99 at GameStop. That’s a huge saving of $35, which is mad for a game that only came out in September and was so well received. 

In the UK, you can get Deathloop and a stylish steel poster for just £38.99. Compare that to the £64 I paid for Deathloop, and you can see how good a deal this is. I didn’t get a steel poster, either. I’m not bitter about it, though, honest. 

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

(Image credit: Square Enix)

Hey everybody, Hamish here! I’m hopping in from the Cyber Monday Xbox deals live blog to lend a hand with PS5 deals – aren’t I great?

Don’t worry I won’t bore with deals like this one which gets you an Xbox Series S with an additional controller for $349.98 nor that new subscribers can currently get their first month of Xbox Game Pass Ultimate for just $1/£1 at Microsoft right now.

What I will serve you up is a juicy PS5 game deal: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is only $26.99 at Amazon.com.

The MCU has firmly ingrained itself into popular culture and while some people find the formula a bit stale at this point the Guardians of the Galaxy films brought some much-needed variety to the genre. This game manages to strike the perfect balance of bringing a fresh take to the now well-known team while also honoring everything that makes these heroes the fan favorites that they are today.

Considering that it only came out a month ago this is an amazing deal that you should snap up while you can.


Call of Duty Vanguard

(Image credit: Activision)

Hello, hello folks. It’s 6am here in the UK so it’s time Hamish got some sleep and I – Gaming Editor Vic Hood – once again took the reigns of highlighting lovely PS5 deals for you this Cyber Monday morning.

So, right off the bat, what are some good deals I’ve spotted as I sip my (very much needed) coffee?

It looks like Call of Duty: Vanguard on PS5 is still just $39 at Walmart, knocking $20 off its usual price tag. You can also pick up the PS4 edition for the same price. This is likely to go quickly and, given Vanguard is such a new release, we don’t expect the price to get any lower today (touches wood).

Time to highlight another excellent PS5 game offer. Resident Evil Village is currently $19.99 at GameStop, thanks to a whopping $30 discount. Resident Evil Village is personally one of my favorite games of this year and, clearly, others agree as it won the Ultimate Game of the Year at the Golden Joysticks this year – though it could be that most people were just very thirsty for Lady Dimitrescu.

In my Resident Evil Village review, I said:

“Resident Evil Village takes the series to new heights, balancing the action of Resident Evil 4 with the deeper narrative approach of Resident Evil 7. This, combined with a brilliant use of audio on PS5 and an array of memorable characters, makes it the best modern Resi entry. That said, anticlimactic boss fights and less of a focus on scares – plus a poorly paced ending – mean that while it starts strong, it struggles somewhat towards the end.”

Ok so, it’s not all smooth sailing. But picking Resi Village up for $20 is definitely a bargain, especially seeing as it’s less than a year old. If you loved Resident Evil 4 then you’re probably going to like this.


Walmart logo on building

(Image credit: Walmart)

PS5 stock remains like gold dust, so unfortunately I can’t bring you any lovely Cyber Monday PS5 console deals right now. However, as we said before, Walmart has confirmed it will have a PS5 restock today at 12pm ET. The only catch is that you have to be a paying Walmart+ member (free trials won’t work).

What I would personally suggest doing if you really want a good chance of getting your hands on a PS5, is to sign up to Walmart+ (make sure to follow prompts to turn your free 15-day trial into a paid membership) and then cancel it after a month. This is a risky move as it doesn’t mean you’ll definitely get a console but, for $12.95, it at least gives you a better chance than a lot of people who won’t have access as this is an exclusive drop.

Amazon

(Image credit: Indiaretailing.com)

Amazon has just launched a fresh set of Cyber Monday deals which means there are loads of new deals available that cover a wide array of tech and gaming – visit the site now to see for yourself. I’ll be bringing you the best Cyber Monday PS5 deals right here, but remember to keep an eye on our Cyber Monday Xbox live blog and Cyber Monday Nintendo Switch live blogs too.


Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless Gaming Headset

(Image credit: Corsair)

One of Amazon’s best Cyber Monday PS5 deals is on this Corsair Virtuoso RGB Wireless Gaming Headset, which has been discounted from $179.99 to $140.00 right now – that’s a $30 saving. 

The Corsair Virtuoso boasts a broadcast-quality mic, a comfortable build and compatibility with PS4, PS5 and PC. So if you’re looking for a premium gaming headset then this is well worth considering. Though, if you’re a little sloth like I am, be prepared for it not to stay that cotton white for long.

Who can say no to free money? This Amazon deal on PlayStation Store credit is essentially that, charging you $90 for an $100 PlayStation Store Gift Card (Digital Code). You can then take that extra $10 and put it towards one of the other PS5 deals on this list. Bellisimo.

WD Black

(Image credit: WD Black)

Go big or go home. That’s a thing, isn’t it? Everything’s got to be bigger these days. Except computer storage, which has to get physically smaller while getting digitally bigger, while the prices get economically bigger. ANYWAY.

If you want a load of extra storage for your PS5, more affordably than usual, check out this WD_BLACK SN850 2TB Internal SSD deal, completely compatible with the PS5. You can save 50 bucks on the stick for Cyber Monday, bringing the price down to $450. Not a huge saving on an expensive product generally, but much better than no saving at all.

Jurassic Park Evolution 2

(Image credit: Jurassic Park Evolution 2)

When it comes to indulging my love of dinosaurs, life finds a way. So it may be Cyber Monday, but I’ve still found a gigantasaurous sized-deal for Jurassic Park fans.

The brand new Jurassic Park Evolution 2, the park-building sim sequel from the folks behind Planet Zoo and Planet Coaster, has only just come out, but can be picked up at a 16% discount from ShopTo in the UK today, down from £49.99 to just £41.85. ROOOOAR!

Planning on spending on some digital PS5 content, like games of subscriptions? Planning on spending more than $100? Want to essentially take $10 for free?

Amazon is selling the $100 PS Store gift card for just $90, which basically hands you $10 for free – provided you were planning to spend it on PlayStation stuff anyway. 


Samsung T5

(Image credit: Samsung)

Good afternoon, gamers! It’s Adam Vjestica, here – TechRadar’s Senior Gaming Writer. I’m back looking after the PS5 live blog to bring you the latest and greatest deals over Cyber Monday, so let’s get started, shall we?

I’ve spotted a super storage deal for PS4 and PS5 users. The Samsung T5 2TB external SSD is $199.99 at GameStop right now. If that’s too much, the Samsung T5 1TB SSD is $119.99 at GameStop, but I think paying $70 for double the capacity is more than worth it, personally.

In the UK, the 2TB model isn’t available, but you can still save on the Samsung T5 1TB external SSD which is £108.40 at Amazon. I can personally recommend this drive as I actually own two of them myself. Typically, I’m sure I paid more than that last year, so grab this deal while you can.

Right, I don’t want anyone to panic, but Walmart’s PS5 restock takes place at 12 pm ET / 9 am PT which is SOON. You need to be a Walmart Plus member, which costs $12.95, as this is a members-only offer. You can sign up here.

I’ve included the links you’ll need below to the PS5 product pages, but remember to be patient, open a window on your browser and your phone (if you can), and don’t dawdle for a second longer than you have to if you manage to make it to checkout.

Good luck, I believe in you.

So… did you manage to get a PS5 from Walmart? Congratulations if so, as I’ve found the perfect deal to snag before Gran Turismo 7 releases in March 2022.

If you’re a gearhead who loves racing games, the Thrustmaster T150 Force Feedback Steering Wheel is now just $149.99 at B&H. The same wheel is also discounted in the UK and is just £149.99 at Jacamo. It’s worth pointing out that this wheel is also compatible with PS4 and PC.

With this force feedback racing wheel, you can literally feel the track as you drive around, or the thud when another car slams into the back of you. It makes driving games far more immersive, and if I had the appropriate play space, I’d be nabbing this for myself. 


Cheap TV deals: OLED TV

(Image credit: LG)

Here’s something I’m strangely passionate about – LG OLED TVs. After plasma televisions were slowly replaced by LCD panels, things were never quite the same until OLED TVs came into the picture, but they were prohibitively expensive for a number of years.

If you’ve never seen an LG OLED in action, that’s probably a good thing, because no other TVs can compare, honestly. The perfect blacks, vivid colors, and gamer-focused settings mean there’s really no competition to the LG OLEDs in my opinion, and the LG CX is currently available for a ludicrously low price in the UK.

Costco members can get the LG OLED 55 CX for £859.99 with code BF10 while stocks last. This is a phenomenal price on one of the best TVs ever made and one that lets you take full advantage of the PS5’s feature set. 

While it isn’t the latest model, the differences between the LG CX and LG C1 are minimal at best. If you own a PS5, the LG CX delivers 4K at 120Hz and lets you watch Netflix using Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. It’s so perfect in fact, that I bought one last year and yeah, it’s perfect in every way.

In the US, the LG CX and C1 are hard to find, but Best Buy does have a variety of televisions on sale to suit all types of budgets. 


PlayStation Store credit deal

Get yourself prepped for the next digital PS5 sale with this great gift card deal from Amazon.

In the US, you can get a $100 PlayStation Store Gift Card for $90. You can redeem this credit for anything on the PlayStation Store, and can even put it towards PS Plus or a PS Now subscription.

The PlayStation Store is pretty decent when it comes to sales and discounts, so $100 can go rather far, especially when there’s a sale event on.


PS5 restock

Good morning, gamers! Adam Vjestica here – TechRadar’s Senior Gaming Writer. Cyber Monday may be officially over, but there are still plenty of cracking deals to be had if you’re a PS4 or PS5 owner. 

But first, a PSA to all our UK readers. Retailer Game has a PS5 restock that’s happening right now. There are various bundles available, but you’ll have to join a virtual queue as we’ve come to expect. There’s no guarantee by the time you get through that any stock will remain, but it’s worth a shot!

Pro tip: go for the more expensive bundles and not standalone consoles. People tend to try and get the PS5 on its own or with a game, but the cheaper bundles tend to sell out fast.


Persona 5 Royal Deluxe deal

It looks like Game has now sold out of its latest PS5 stock allocation in the UK. Did you manage to get one? Congratulations if so. 

It’s worth keeping an eye on Game’s PS5 product page for at least the next few hours, as it tends to go live again with more bundles if there are any cancellations. 

Right, deals. That’s why you’re here, and it’s time I delivered. 

Persona 5 Royal Deluxe is only $20.99 / £16.49 on the PlayStation Store if you have a PlayStation Plus membership, which is the lowest price I’ve seen for Atlus’ JRPG hit title. If you don’t have PS Plus, ShopTo has knocked 16% off a 12-month subscription in the UK.

For US readers, GameFly has Outriders for $9.99 and Biomutant for $12.99 on PS4. Both are pre-owned copies, but you’re not missing out on anything by buying these games used. 

If you spot any great discounts in the UK and US you’d like to share with the group, feel free to drop me a line on Twitter at @ItsMrProducts.

How much PS5 storage have you got left? I’m going to take a guess and say… not a lot. 

If you’re running out of room, there are still a number of PlayStation 5 compatible SSDs on sale, but stock is drying up fast.

The Samsung 980 Pro 1TB with heatsink is $219.99 at Best Buy, which is $30 off, and in the UK, you can still get the WD Black 500GB NVMe Gaming SSD with heatsink for £108.67 at Amazon.

Both of these SSDs meet Sony’s requirements and far exceed the recommended speeds. You also don’t need to worry about cooling, as they each have a heatsink installed.


Shenmue

Hello. I’m back from my lunch break which involved doing the dishes. Isn’t it fun being an adult?

After perusing the web for more PS5 deals, I’ve got some good news and bad news. The good news is that there’s still plenty of discounts to be had. The bad news is that stock is starting to dry up, which means a lot of deals are basically dead.

That hasn’t stopped me from finding this deal on Sakura Wars for PS4 is down to $25, which is a massive price cut of 58%. I’ve had my eye on this game for a while, as who wouldn’t want to be transported to a vibrant 1940s steampunk Tokyo? 

In the UK, you can get Shenmue 3 for just £7.95 from The Game Collection. I remember playing the original Shenmue on the Sega Dreamcast, and it’s still one of my fondest gaming memories. I admittedly haven’t played the sequels, but for less than £10, hey, I’m game. 


Spider-Man swings into Marvel's Avengers

I’ve carved out a reputation at TechRadar for being the only person who despises the Marvel Cinematic Universe with a passion, and I’m rather proud of that. But when it comes to Marvel video games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales, I’m a lot more tolerant of comic book adaptations. And when a game costs less than $10, even more so.

Case in point, Marvel’s Avengers is just $9.99 on both PS4 and PS5 at GameStop. With such an incredible saving, you can buy that jewel-encrusted glove the big purple man wears, which is now less than $100

In the UK, the game is just £14.85 on PS5 and £14.99 on PS4. If you’ve been on the fence about picking this one up, now is a good time.

Our pick is the SecretLab Titan Evo 2022. It’s down to $469 in the US and £389 in the UK, and you can customize it however you see fit. The sale ends today, so don’t miss out if you want to save on these well-respected gaming chairs.


PlayStation Icon Lights

You’ve probably seen these lights on the shelves of your favorite YouTuber or streamer, and now you can own them too.

In the US, the PlayStation Icon lights are available for $31.99, which illuminate white to blue. There are two additional light modes included, and they can even react to music which is pretty neat.

You can also get a different version of the PlayStation Icon Lights in the UK, which are just £15.50 at Jacamo. I actually own this item myself and they look great when illuminated at night.


Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Ok, this one is for our US audience only. Both Amazon and GameStop have a promotion right now where if you spend $100 on select video game purchases, you’ll automatically save $10. GameStop even goes one step further and will let you save $20 if you spend $200.

The list of games that fall into the promotion includes many titles that are already on sale, like Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade and Guardians of the Galaxy, so there’s a great chance to stock up on titles you’ve had your eye on and save money in the process. You can even pick up accessories like the PS5 DualSense Controller.
