Best October Prime Day 2023 video game deals under $40

  • Ghost of Tsushima Director’s Cut (PS5) is $29.99 (was $69.99). Few games are as good of a PS5 system showcase as this open-world game that debuted on PS4. It’s an open-world action game popping with lush visuals and style. You play as Jin, a warrior who turns his back on samurai code to avenge the fallen.
  • Returnal (PS5) is $29.99 (was $69.99)
  • Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart (PS5) is $29.99 (was $69.99). Insomniac Games’ latest installment in the long-running PlayStation series is the best (and most graphically stunning) yet.
  • The Nioh Collection (PS5) is $29.99 (was $69.99)
  • Demon’s Souls is $29.99 (was $69.99). Bluepoint Studio’s loving recreation of FromSoftware’s Demon’s Souls is a must-have for PS5 owners.
  • Mario Golf: Super Rush is $29.99 (was $59.99)
  • Bayonetta 3 is $36.99 (was $59.99)
  • Metroid Dread is $39.99 (was $59.99). At one point in the early 2000s, Dread was originally conceived as a game for the DS handheld, then cancelled. The revived game for Switch is a stunning achievement that breathes new life into the franchise, and serves as the final chapter in the main Metroid story arc.
