Dead Space (Deluxe Edition): was $79 now $63 @ PlayStation Store
Step back into the space boots of Isaac Clarke in this remake of the legendary sci-fi survival horror, Dead Space. The USG Ishimura has been overrun with nightmarish enemies, and it's your job to discover the source of the outbreak while trying to keep your sanity in check. This Deluxe Edition includes a set of exclusive cosmetic items.
NBA 2K23: was $69 now $23 @ PlayStation Store
The NBA 2K franchise is renowned for offering a practically unparallel simulation of the sport of basketball, and NBA 2K23 keeps that trend going. Even if you don't consider yourself a baller, you're sure to be impressed with the ultra-realistic gameplay, and the large variety of modes. Unfortunately, the micro-transaction stuffed online modes remain a persistent problem that hasn't been addressed here.
Marvel's Midnight Suns (Enhanced Edition): was $69 now $34 @ PlayStation Store
Marvel's Midnight Suns is one of the most overlooked games on PS5. It brings together a roster of iconic Marvel superheroes to battle the demonic Lilith via strategic turn-based battle. But when you're not engaged in combat you can build your relationships back at home base which in turn makes your heroes stronger. This Enhanced Edition includes five additional cosmetic skins.
The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: was $39 now $19 @ PlayStation Store
One of the most critically acclaimed games of all time has been given a fresh coat of paint on PS5. Time has been kind to The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt, and this gigantic RPG remains just as compelling now as it was back at release in 2015. You play Geralt of Rivia, a mercenary monster slayer, on a quest to track down your former ward. But don't be surprised if you get seriously sidetracked by the game's numerous sidequests and distractions.
Sifu: was $39 now $23 @ PlayStation Store
Unleash your inner John Wick in Sifu. This intense beat 'em up casts you as a young Kung Fu student on a quest for revenge against those who wronged you. But each time you fall, you will age, and with that comes serious consequences. Be warned this is a brutally challenging game but when you nail a string of attacks, it offers a feeling that few games on PS5 can match.
Riders Republic: was $59 now $14 @ PlayStation Store
Riders Republic offers a massive extreme sports playground that you can explore on a bike, skis, snowboard, wingsuit or even a rocket-powered glider. With dozens of events to complete, and tons of secrets to unearth across its large-scale map, you'll likely still be playing Riders Republic by the time the next PlayStation Store Spring Sale rolls around.
Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales: was $49 now $19 @ PlayStation Store
This spin-off from 2018's Spider-Man PS4, sees a teenage Miles Morales look to prove his superhero credentials by taking on a fierce enemy that threatens to destroy New York City. Spider-Man Miles Morales is the ideal game to hold you over until the release of Spider-Man 2 later in the year. Plus, the snowy winter setting is pretty refreshing, even if it's a little out of season right now.
LEGO Star Wars The Skywalker Saga: was $59 now $23 @ PlayStation Store
The whole galaxy is yours to explore in LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga. Experience your favorite moments from across all nine Star Wars chapters in adorable LEGO brick form, and unlock more than 300 playable characters.

Stray: was $29 now $23 @ PlayStation Store
One of 2022’s unexpected cult hits, Stray casts you as a curious cat in a world filled with humanoid robots. There’s a lot to like in this cyberpunk adventure, from its strong sense of setting, to its nonverbal storytelling, to its dedicated “meow” button. The gameplay is simple, but some platforming and puzzle challenges should keep players engaged during Stray’s relatively short playtime.
Deathloop (Deluxe Edition): was $79 now $26 @ Playstation Store
Deathloop casts you as a wisecracking mercenary on mission to break free from a never ending day. In order to break the loop you'll need to eliminate a group of high powered targets before the day can reset, but your task is complicated by the rival assassin that is simultaneously hunting you down.
