Sony’s persistently hard-to-buy next-gen console turns two years old next month. This means it’s finally old enough that sales events like October's Amazon Prime Day are starting to offer PS5 deals that are actually worth shouting about. 

Of course, there are no discounts on the console itself — buying one at standard MSRP still requires hunting PS5 restock — but some of the best PS5 games and essential accessories are now starting to dip lower in price. Amazon’s Prime Early Access Sale is currently offering a suite of offers that any PS5 owners will most certainly want to consider.

Discounts on official PS5 accessories are pretty much non-existent right now (Sony appears to be reserving them for its own sales events like Days of Play) but if you’re in the market for some must-play PS5 games, you’ve picked a great time to shop. These are the best PS5 deals available right now in Amazon’s latest Prime Day sales.

Battlefield 2042: $69$11 @ Amazon

Battlefield 2042: $69 $11 @ Amazon
Battlefield 2042 earned itself a fairly deserved reputation as a misfire at launch, but since then the developers have been slowly making improvements and it's now in a significantly better state with redesigned maps, new weapons and a tweaked Specialist system. It's still got its flaws, but for $11 you'll certainly get your money's worth with Battlefield 2042.  

Ghostwire Tokyo: $59$29 @ Amazon

Ghostwire Tokyo: $59 $29 @ Amazon
Something of a forgotten game, Ghostwire Tokyo was released earlier this year without much fanfare. Which is a great shameless as the atmospheric action game has a lot going for it. From its stunning recreation of Tokyo, to its enjoyable combat and surprisingly engaging side quests. It's a game that deserves a second chance, and at 50% off now is the perfect time to circle back to this one.

Grand Theft Auto V: $39 $19 @ Amazon
You've probably already bought multiple copies of GTA V at this point, but that won't stop you buying it for PS5 as well.

You can also transfer a previous GTA Online character to this version so you won't lose all your progression.
