Weekend Console Download Deals for Feb. 18: PlayStation Critics' Choice sale

The PlayStation Critics' Choice sale leads the way this week, featuring major discounts on top first-party games and major third-party games. Hey, did you know Cyberpunk 2077 is playable now?


If you're a PlayStation owner, then I am pleased to inform you that the critics have chosen once again! The Critics' Choice sale has returned and that means major discounts on some of the best games of the past few years, as well as some big-time first-party titles. That includes Returnal, Demon's Souls, and the Death Stranding Director's Cut. You can also find discounts on a few newer titles like Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction and Solar Ash.

Over at Xbox, Anime Month titles have rotated and you can now grab games like Tales of Arise and Scarlet Nexus. If you'd rather hit the road, then you can check out the Start Your Engines sale for your favorite racer.

One thing both console storefronts have in common is that Cyberpunk 2077 is half-off and, would you look at that, it's actually good now! So if you've been waiting patiently for CD Projekt RED's latest to be in a playable state on console, it looks like the wait is finally over.

Lastly, Nintendo has a handful of major titles on sale. The Kingdom Hearts trilogy is on sale, though buyer beware on these Cloud Versions. Make sure you have a strong internet connection. You can still pick up Life is Strange: True Colors and Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy (also a Cloud Version), as well as Cuphead and the best of Activision Blizzard.

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?
