The PlayStation Store's latest sale is called Double Discounts, and it's a very good collection of deals for PlayStation Plus subscribers.

Best PlayStation Store Double Discounts deals 

One of our favorite deals in this sale is The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for just $19. This epic open-world RPG just got an impressive PS5 port last December, and you can also pick up the game’s Expansion Pass which contains two essential DLCs for a further $14. Another great pick if you’re looking for a game with dozen of hours worth of content is Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut for $29. This action-adventure epic casts you as Jin Sakai, a samurai on a mission to protect his island home and also seek revenge on those who murdered his clan. 

If you’ve been enjoying HBO’s The Last of Us, then you might want to consider The Last of Us 2 for just $9. This is the lowest price ever for the PS4 exclusive, and the game can be played at a full 60fps on the PS5 via backwards compatibility mode. The very underrated Marvel’s Midnight Suns is also been discounted with the swanky Legendary Edition dropping to $59 (was $99). Meanwhile, FIFA 23 for $27 is a deal that will surely appeal to soccer fans. 

There are also a couple of games that will be compatible with Sony’s upcoming PS VR 2 headset included in this sale. The most noteworthy of these is definitely No Man’s Sky for $29, that’s half-off its full retail price. It's already been confirmed that when the PS VR2 version launches existing owners will get a free upgrade.

If you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, this is undoubtedly one of the strongest PlayStation Store sales of the year so far. And the good news is you'll have access to the full discounts at any tier level. So, you don't need a pricey Premium plan to get up to 80% off, even members on the cheapest Essential tier get access to the entire suite of deals. 

The PlayStation Store Double Discounts sale runs until the beginning of March which should give you more than enough time to make your selections from the hundreds of games on offer. Check our list of the best PS5 games if you need some further recommendations.
