Thanks, picked up Ratchet & Clank and also saw they had Uncharted collection for a $10 upgrade price available, so I added that in. I'll probably get the Spider-Man Miles Morales Ultimate bundle for $40, good enough price for 2 great PS5 games.

Some of these are the same price on digital in the PSN store. I know people may want a physical copy though. I'm thinking of getting Ratchet and Clank, Valkyrie Elysium, REturnal and maybe a few others.i

Iím actually shocked that some of the games are cheaper digital. Some of the digital games are $1 cheaper than the disc version.

Is there any difference between the PS4 and the PS5 versions?

as I understand, you can get the PS5 digital version free by inserting the PS4 disc.

Edit: clarification provided by others. You still have to pop the disc in to play your upgraded copy.

As for actual differences... I'm guessing not much. But at least you have both options if you grab the PS4 disc.

The PS5 version also costs $5 more and you don't get the PS4 version included.

But you get a nifty white box!

But you still have to have the disc in the machine to play. You probably know that but just in case someone thinks they can put in the PS4 disc, download the PS5 copy, then use it as a coaster or sell it.

That's always the case if you're buying the disc version, the PS5 version as well. But if you're buying it on disc, I don't see any reason to buy the PS5 version, unless you just really want the case to match your other PS5 games or you just don't want to download it.

No, I agree, just the wording of "you get the digital PS5 version free" could be confusing.

Good point. You're right that the disc is always needed.
Really would be cool if they did some kind of disc to digital trade in program. That way you could take advantage of good physical deals, then swap the disc for a fully digital license later.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

I think I’m almost done with my Black Friday video game purchases. I picked up:
Miles Morales PS5 $19.99
Sack boy PS5 $19.99
TMNT Cowabunga Collection PS4 $19.99
Ghosts of Tsushima PS5 $29.99
Life is Strange: True Colors PS5 $19.99
Horizon: Forbidden West PS4 with free PS5 Upgrade $29.99

The only other game I might buy is Sonic Frontiers if it’s $29 at Walmart tomorrow. I was hoping for a sale on Project Triangle Strategy, but I guess I’ll wait until next Black Friday.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

how long might it take for a game like Sonic Frontiers to go down in price digitally?

Does your Xbox play discs? You can get it for $29 at Walmart or on digital for $41.99 on either Xbox or PlayStation.

Life is Strange: True Colors down to $15 now. I wish I waited a couple days on it. I could have saved $5.

xbox does have a disc slot, but i would only get digital. i didn't know it went down to $42. that's not bad, but with so many in backlog, i can wait to get this and probably be lower eventually.. i think

Why don't you just buy the disc and save $13? If you don't like the game, you can sell or trade it in.
