Having bagged a PlayStation 5 at the tail-end of 2021, I've been steadily buying games to add to my collection. But as their prices have increased I've become more frugal when it comes to buying games on launch day. That's why I've been waiting for the best Prime Day deals to surface.
Turns out it was worth the wait, too, as the PlayStation exclusive Horizon: Forbidden West has seen £20 slashed from its RRP, bringing it down to £49.99 this Prime Day. That's for the PS5 version proper, too, not the PS4 version which you can then graphically bolster on the PS5.
Horizon Forbidden West: was £69.99, now £49.99 at Amazon (save £20) (opens in new tab)
One of the best PS5 exclusives going – and a game I've held out buying thus far, until now. That's simply because its price has slipped below that crucial £50 mark.
I can't wait to continue Aloy's adventures, having loved the first game (which was another title I arrived at later than launch day for the same reason).
It's not just PlayStation exclusives that are being discounted for Prime Day either: I've already written about the 5 Best PS5 Deals This Prime Day, highlighting some even cheaper bargains on the likes of Far Cry 6, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and Uncharted Legacy of Thieves – they're significantly less cash than £50, so go take a look.
For me, however, I just don't have the time to buy loads of games at once, otherwise I'll never get to play them all. It's why I've been biding my time in waiting for a must-have title such as the Horizon sequel. That'll serve me well this weekend – although after a five-star Prime Day deals effort, I might just spend most of it asleep instead.
