Christmas can be one of the most expensive times of the year, needing to buy gifts for all manner of family and friends. That’s what makes festive sales on video games so great - allowing you to treat yourself to recent titles at a wallet-friendly price. So, let’s get into the best PS5 Christmas sale deals of 2022. 

Best PS5 Christmas Sale Deals 2022

PS5 Consoles

Whilst console bundles don’t give you the biggest discount in the world, just having PS5s readily available to buy this year feels fantastic compared to the scarce availability we had the last couple of Christmases. Plus, with so many brilliant games released and now regularly discounted over the last couple of years, it’s absolutely the best time to buy a PS5. 

Best Buy currently has two PS5 console options available. You can either buy the disc console on its own for the standard price of $499.99 or buy the same console bundled with a digital voucher code for the PS5 version God of War Ragnarok for $559.99. The game on its own still sells for $69.99, so this bundle will net you a saving of $10. 

PS5 DualSense Controller

Before we get into the actual games, we can’t resist a good deal on a DualSense since they’re usually so expensive. The PS5 controller is not only down $25 in price to $49.99, but that’s for all colours too. So, if you wanted a spare DualSense in a different colour to the boxed white version, now is the time. 

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

A total bargain at less than half price, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is arguably one of the best PS5 titles. That’s not just because it’s a great game in general, but also because it’s a true PlayStation 5 exclusive - still being only available to play on the PS5, with the game utilising the system’s SSD technology to become an incredibly integral part of the gameplay. 

Sonic Frontiers

Only out since November, Sonic Frontiers is the most surprising PS5 Christmas deal, now 33% off. After a slew of Sonic games with poor-to-mixed reception, Frontiers has been regarded as one of the series’ best in years. If you have always wanted to have the blue hedgehog race across a fully open world, this is the game for you. 

Horizon Forbidden West

One of the best titles of 2022, even being one of the Game of the Year nominees at this year’s Game Awards, Horizon Forbidden West is packed with value. With Best Buy taking $30 off the price tag, one of the PS5’s most graphically stunning games set in a massive open world makes this deal feel like a steal. 

Grand Theft Auto V

GTA 5 has been around for almost a decade, but that doesn’t make the amount of Los Santos fun it can be any less valuable. With all of the PS5 bells and whistles including modes for 4K and 60FPS, haptic feedback, and fast SSD loading, this is without a doubt the best way to play GTA 5 - being even better knowing it can be yours for just under $20. 

Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut

What’s essentially a Ghost of Tsushima: Complete Edition, the Director’s Cut gives you all of the narratively awe-inspiring, single-player content that came with the PS4 release and more. Upgraded to look and play as if it originally came out on PS5, Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut is another absolute must-play, now at $40 off for a must-buy price of $29.99. 

That's a wrap on the best PS5 Christmas sale deals in 2022. If you’re looking to keep adding to your gaming set-up, you should also check out the best PS5 monitors in 2022 or the best Corsair gaming keyboards
