Do you own a PlayStation 5? Congratulations, you won the 21st century Hunger Games contest that is procuring a next-gen gaming console. A new sale on the PlayStation Store -- the Critic's Choice sale -- has a number of excellent PlayStation games discounted. The majority, of course, are on the PS4. But there are a few next-gen jewels in there too. Here are our picks. 


Assassin's Creed Valhalla was one of the biggest games of 2020's holiday season and now it's discounted for both PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners. The game has been criticized for having a plodding start, but lauded for the huge world, interesting characters and in-depth combat that comes after those slower first hours. 

It recieved an 8/10 on GameSpot, our sister site and is $40 until Feb. 17.

Warner Bros.

Everyone needs a fighter in their life. Mortal Kombat 11 recieved high praise -- and a 9/10 score from GameSpot -- upon release in 2019. The Ultimate edition of the game is available for PS5, at a discounted price of $36 until Feb. 17, with improved 4K, faster loading times and, most importantly, more characters. 

Just so you know: One of those characters is Rambo.

Activision Blizzard

Destiny 2 has been updated for PS5, bringing 60-frames-per-second gameplay. If you're new to Destiny 2, a squad-shooter that's likely to have an active user base for years to come, you can get the Legendary Edition for $47. That may sound like not so much of a discount, but that includes the original game and three DLC packs: Forsaken, Shadownkeep and Beyond Light


Not much really needs to be said about FIFA 21. If you're the type of person who likes FIFA, then you need at least one FIFA game on any given console. Now is a good time to make that happen for PS5 owners. The PlayStation 5 edition of FIFA 21 Championship Edition is 75% off until Feb. 17.


Watch Dog Legion, Ubisoft's other holiday 2020 AAA title, is 50% off until Feb. 17. Watch Dogs doesn't have the name recognition of Assassin's Creed, it's no less worth playing. Legion takes place is a dystopian London, a tale of hacker-terrorism. If you'd rather explore an apocalyptic future over the ancient past, this is one worth checking out.
