PS4 January sale 2020: Best games, price discounts, DLC, in-game currency and much more
Sony are already rolling out their January sales, with over 1000 deals up for grabs.
The PlayStation January sale is here, allowing you to grab a handful of the biggest games at heavily discounted prices.
So, what’s on offer on the PS site? Let’s take a detailed look at the best games, prices and much more.
Biggest and best PS4 deals
Well, if you haven’t played FIFA 20 yet, now’s your chance – it’s been slashed from £59.99 to £29.99, a massive saving.
Elsewhere, the brilliant Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is down from £59.99 to £44.99 – so there’s no better time to force yourself to spend your hard-earned cash.
Need for Speed: Heat also gets a price cut – shaving of £20 of its £59.99 original RRP. Proceed with caution on this one, though – it’s a lot better than Payback but Heat’s critical reception was pretty lukewarm.
Our pick of the bunch, though, goes to Spider-Man – which is down to a crazy £15.99 – it’s got to be the cheapest price on the web.
I’m sorry, I couldn’t resist. Anyway…
GTA V is another classic you can pick up for less than £20. It may be a few years old, but Rockstar has no plans to turn off the content tap just yet – so it’s an absolute steal.
Also worth a nod is Death Stranding and Red Dead Redemption 2, the former getting knocked down to £44.99 while Rockstar’s classic is slashed from (a ridiculously steep) £89.99 to £29.99.
Oh, and God of War is £12. Praise be.
OK, that’s the good stuff… but what about not so good?
Well, personally I’d stay away from Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey (not just because my account was hacked and I woke up to find my game completed with all the unlocks and all the main bosses dead).
Nope, for the simple reason that it just feels far too familiar – even if the Deluxe Edition is available for £21.99.
Also, you may want to dodge World War Z.
On paper, it sounds class, but in reality, it’s not much fun. Think Left For Dead without the raw intensity and weapons that feel like pea-shooters.
The Best PS4 Games to buy for Christmas 2019 – NBA 2K20, COD: Modern Warfare, Star Wars & more
With less than a week to go, the countdown to Christmas day is well and truly on.
Many of you will be in panic present buying mode, but fear not as RealSport is here to offer a festive helping hand.
If it’s a PS4 game you’re after (either for someone special or as a treat for yourself) then look no further, as we’ve listed all the best PS4 game you could buy this Christmas!
But before we get into it, the PlayStation Store’s Christmas deals just went live.
With up to 70% off a huge range of PS4 games digitally, there is plenty to choose and enjoy over the festive season, including God of War: Digital Deluxe Edition, Dying Light & Gran Turismo Sport to name just a few.
Just head on through to PlayStation Store to find out the full list of titles, and find out your regional pricing.
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
Set five years after Revenge Of The Sith, the game’s protagonist Cal Kestis is a young ex-Padawan forced from hiding who only narrowly escapes capture in the opening gambit.
Fallen Order truly feels like Star Wars, with the sound department killing it and the visuals really putting you into the gritty nature of The Empire.
It is fun to play and challenging even to some hardened gamers at the higher difficulty levels!
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare
If this isn’t the game of the year it should be very close. The new COD is nostalgia done right, bringing all the intense firefights of the old Modern Warfare game with fresh graphics, amazing audio, and spectacular maps.
There are hundreds of loadout unlockables and gunsmith options, the depth of game modes and of course the planned DLC means this is not a game that will lose its player base quickly.

GRID is a fantastic racing game, with a wide range of cars, locations, and circuit routes, which means you aren’t likely to get bored with it any time soon. The racing experience is truly unlike any other too.
It’s the kind of game you can jump in for a quick race or thrash around for a 5-hour binge and still enjoy. The variety of cars, tracks, and unpredictable races make it one you’ll come back to over and over again.

Need for Speed Heat
Another racing game on our list, the latest installment in the 25-year-old franchise hit the shelves back in November. Need for Speed Heat is well worth putting on your Christmas list, as its graphics, sound, and customisation are all be top-notch.
This is a fun game and is much like the Fast and Furious films it takes inspiration from; flashy, good-looking and a fun, cheesy campaign.

F1 2019 was released back in June with rave reviews from both the fans and critics alike. It’s generally accepted that this year’s game is one of the best, if not the best in the ten years since Codemasters began developing the franchise.
The game’s inclusion of driver transfers, antagonistic rivalries and a superb driving experience makes this game an unquestionable hit.

Without question, this is the best NBA 2K title to date. The visuals are crisp, the gameplay bugs from previous editions have been eradicated and there have been significant improvements to already top-quality modes.
The changes to offence and defence make it easier for those who struggle with in-game plays but are so rewarding when you get them right. This is the most customisable and ambitious 2K title yet and will not disappoint if you are an avid basketball gamer.

We couldn’t have a Christmas games list without including the most popular football title, FIFA 20. This year’s game has brought with it a refurbished Career Mode, allowing for manager customisation and dynamic team morale.
In addition, Ultimate Team has been diversified with new features such as First Owner Objectives, bringing a new twist to the online game mode. If you haven’t got the game already, the Christmas sales are a great time to pick it up.

The Pro Evo franchise has long been in the shadow of EA’s FIFA titles – however, this year felt a little different…
Konami’s licensing agreement with Juventus is the cherry on the top of plenty of other big-name partnerships, such as Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.
Not only this, PES boasts shiny 3D scanning graphics, and a revamped Master League. The franchise has taken a massive step in the right direction, closing the gap with its footballing rival.
