The latest PlayStation Store deals have landed just in time for the Memorial Day sales. Called the Planet of Discounts sale, it's slashing the prices of some of the most overlooked PS5 games including, Planet Coaster, OlliOlli World and Alan Wake: Remastered.
To be totally honest, this is probably one of the weaker PlayStation Store sales of the year so far. It's lacking deals on major exclusives like Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Horizon: Forbidden West. And the vast majority of the games included haven’t quite made the cut for our roundup of the best PS5 games. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t worthwhile deals to be found here.
While the blockbuster deals are likely being saved for the annual PlayStation Summer Sale, Planet of Discounts has still reduced the price of some high-quality current-gen titles (plus, loads of the best PS4 games as well). So, here are our nine favorite PS5 picks in this latest PlayStation Store sale.
