If you’re a new PS5 owner, PS Plus is one of the first things you should buy.

Turtle Beach Recon 200

$30 (was $60)

If you’re looking for a budget-friendly headset for your PS5, the Turtle Beach Recon 200 is a universal headset that offers solid sound quality for the price. It has an understated design and comfortable ear cups for long gaming sessions.

Astro A40 TR Gaming Headset

$120 (was $150)

Astro makes some of the best third-party console peripherals, and the A40 TR is a prime example of that. It’s one of the best wired headsets you can buy for the price, with studio-quality stereo surround and a lightweight design with ultra-comfortable ear cushions. The A40 plugs into the 3.5mm audio jack, so it works with PS5 and Series X (as well as legacy consoles).

DualShock 4 Controllers (Pre-Owned)

$30 (was $52)

While the DualShock 4 isn’t compatible with PS5 games, you can use it to play backwards-compatible PS4 games, including every game in the PS Plus Collection. GameStop will have a great deal on pre-owned PS4 controllers, discounting them to just $30.

The Last of Us Part II

$30 (was $60)

The Last of Us Part II is one of the 2020’s biggest games. If you haven’t picked it up yet, you can snag it for its best price yet at Best Buy this Black Friday. And if you’re new to the post-apocalyptic action series, The Last of Us Remastered is included with the PS Plus Collection–that way you can play the original before diving into the excellent sequel at a great price.

Watch Dogs: Legion

$33 (was $60)

Watch Dogs: Legion just released at the end of October, but the PS5 version will already receive a steep discount at GameStop. You can snag the open-world adventure starring a group of trendy hackers for just $33. Legion is a great game, especially at this price. It earned an 8/10 in GameSpot’s Watch Dogs: Legion review.

Ghost of Tsushima

$40 (was $60)

Ghost of Tsushima was the last major PS4 exclusive, and it made its moment count. The open-world samurai game oozes with style, features a compelling narrative, and offers an abundance of content. After finishing the lengthy single-player campaign, you can jump into the Legends online multiplayer mode, which was recently added as a free update. You can snag Ghost of Tsushima for its best price yet this Black Friday.

Days Gone

$20 (was $40)

If you haven’t checked out Days Gone yet, Bend Studio’s open-world zombie game will be on sale for $20. It’s one of the first-party PlayStation games that is receiving a next-gen update for PS5 to support 60 frames per second and dynamic 4K resolution.

Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time

$40 (was $60)

Toys for Bob did a remarkable job reviving the iconic Crash Bandicoot series with Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time. The sequel is rich in content and authentic to its predecessors while moving the series forward. Discounts have been rare since launching a couple of months back, but you can get it for a new low of $40 during Black Friday.

Resident Evil 3

$15 (was $40)

The Resident Evil 3 remake will hit a new low price at Best Buy this Black Friday. At just $15, the remake is well worth the price, even though it’s a relatively short and inconsistent experience overall.

Marvel’s Avengers

$27 (was $60)

Marvel’s Avengers hasn’t sold nearly as well as Square Enix probably expected, but the live service superhero game is still worth playing even if you just want to run through the main story. It’ll be on sale for only $27, which is the lowest price we’ve seen since Marvel’s Avengers launched in August.

Persona 5 Royal

$20 (was $60)

Persona 5 Royal, an updated version of the 2017 JRPG with loads of new content, released earlier this year to critical acclaim. It earned a rare 10/10 in our Persona 5 Royal review. If you’re looking for a lengthy JRPG to play over winter, look no further, especially at this new low price.

Final Fantasy VII Remake

$30 (was $60)

Given the nature of 2020, it’s actually kind of hard to believe Final Fantasy VII Remake released this year. Telling part one of the story, Final Fantasy VII Remake is as wonderful as you remember, even with a huge departure with regards to combat. It also earned a 10/10 in GameSpot’s Final Fantasy VII Remake review.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

$25 (was $60)

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice was GameSpot’s game of the year last year thanks to its exquisite combat system and an enthralling world brought to life by acclaimed Japanese studio From Software. If you haven’t checked it out, you’ll be able to snag it for only $25.

Red Dead Redemption 2

$20 (was $60)

Red Dead Redemption 2 was one of the most ambitious games released during the PS4’s lifecycle. The open-world western features top-notch performances, a captivating story, and a massive online mode to play in addition to the fantastic campaign. You’ll be able to pick it up for the low price of $20.

Death Stranding

$20 (was $40)

Death Stranding is a weird game, but not many could’ve predicted that the world it depicts is pretty darn prescient to what we’re dealing with in 2020. If you’re looking for something different to play this holiday, Death Stranding is quite unlike most open-world games.

Nioh 2

$10 (was $40)

Fans of Dark Souls will likely find a lot to love in Nioh 2, a challenging action-RPG from Team Ninja that released earlier this year. It serves as a prequel to the original, so you don’t need to have any preexisting knowledge to dive in. Nioh 2 will be on sale for just $10–a steal for a great and lengthy solo adventure. It earned an 8/10 in GameSpot’s Nioh 2 review.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2

$30 (was $40)

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a simply fantastic remake of two truly iconic games. Vicarious Visions remained authentic to the originals while modernizing the controls and feel of the games. In short, the remake is certainly worthwhile for diehard fans of the series as well as newcomers. It earned a 9/10 in GameSpot’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 review.

Star Wars Squadrons

$17 (was $40)

Star Wars Squadrons brings back a once-popular genre of games for the legendary franchise: space combat. Squadrons is an arcade-style dogfighting game with solid mechanics and a fun online mode. It earned a 7/10 in GameSpot’s Star Wars Squadrons review and will be on sale for less than $20, just months after it launched.

Madden NFL 21

$27 (was $60)

While Madden NFL 21 failed to move the long-running EA Sports series forward, there are plenty of gamers who want the new version each year for the roster updates. If you have someone on your shopping list who asked for Madden NFL 21, you can pick it up for only $27 during GameStop’s Black Friday sale.

Doom Eternal

$20 (was $60)

Doom Eternal picks up right where its 2016 predecessor left off in terms of offering fast-paced, adrenaline-pumping combat. The campaign mode is great and adds new twists to the already great formula. First-person shooter fans shouldn’t miss out on Doom Eternal, which will be discounted to its lowest price yet during Black Friday.
