Weekend Console Download Deals for Feb. 5: PlayStation Critics' Choice Sale

The critics have spoken and some of their favorite games are on sale this weekend for PlayStation.


Chances are that if you see a seal of approval from multiple critics, your money is going to be well-spent. That means there are a lot of quality games to select from during the PlayStation Critics' Choice sale. Strong games both big and small are on sale for the next couple of weeks. If you're looking for the best from Ubisoft (Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Watch Dogs: Legion), this will be the sale for you. However, you can also find other quality titles, including Spelunky 2, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, and Final Fantasy XIV Online. If you don't own a PS5 and want to play Valhalla, it's on sale over on Xbox too, so don't worry too much there. Nintendo also has its own Ubisoft sale going down, so if you're looking to play Immortals Fenyx Rising on your Switch, you can pick it up at a discount this weekend.

Elsewhere, the monthly freebies have rotated out. That means you can play the all-new Destruction AllStars on your PlayStation 5. Also, Xbox would really, really like for you to play Gears 5. It's free this month as part of Games With Gold, along with the original Resident Evil. Plus, Gold members have a nice offer for Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, so consider picking that up, too.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
