Memorial Day PS5 deals provided some great opportunities to save big. It was also one of the best times, and the first real opportunity to walk away with a discount on the next-gen console. Sales have now past, so head below to find any deals still live.

Since the beginning of 2023, we've been coming across more PS5 deals and bundles. Just recently, Sony announced a Final Fantasy 16 PS5 bundle as well as dropping the cost of its God of War Ragnarok PS5 bundle by $50. This is only set to continue with Marvel's Spider-Man 2, Assassin's Creed Mirage, and Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth all due out in 2023.

Even better, stock shortages are pretty much coming to an end now. While the likes of Amazon might sell out occasionally, Best Buy, Walmart, and the many, many other retailers out there are getting a constant supply of the console so you can start playing as soon as possible. It's something we've found by regularly updating our PS5 price and bundle hub over the past couple of years.

No matter what you're after, we are rounding up all the best Memorial Day PS5 deals in one place. Everything from discounts on the console to record low prices on the latest video games to must-have accessories that add to your setup. We have it all!

When do Memorial Day PS5 deals start?

Memorial Day 2023 is set to take place on Monday, May 29th, 2023. That said, Memorial Day PS5 deals will start appearing during the weekend beforehand, so expect offers from May 27th, 2023. These will likely carry through until the big day, and some might even last until the Wednesday (May 31st), however, we always recommend jumping on a deal there and there. Why? Because while that deal might be available for the full duration, stock might not be. So when it's gone, it's gone for good. 

Which retailers will be best for Memorial Day PS5 deals?

Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart are all strong bets for the best Memorial Day PS5 deals. Amazon often offers the lowest-ever prices we see on consoles and software, thanks to its subsidiary, Woot. These are extremely limited, though! 

Walmart has been surprisingly great for bundles too, being one of the first to reduce the God of War Ragnarok price by $50. Both the retailer and Best Buy host regular daily deals and clearance sales, so always worth keeping an eye out there for a bargain or two. For cheap digital games, CDKeys is your best port of call. PS5 games are often found at half-price there, sometimes better. Aside from that, keep an eye out on social media (@Deals_Radar brings you the best of GamesRadar, TechRadar and Tom's Guide) and keep refreshing this page for the latest deals across Memorial Day. 

Amazon: cheap PS5 games, SSDs, and more

Best Buy: daily PS5 bundle deals and clearance sales

CDKeys: up to 66% off digital games – including God of War

GameStop: PS5 stock readily available

Walmart: Lots of PS5 bundles with 65% off in flash deals

When will Memorial Day PS5 deals end?

Memorial Day PS5 deals are expected to end at midnight on May 29th, 2023, however some deals are likely to continue afterwards. It's never worth risking it to see if they do hang on, so if you see something you want – get it. Still, we wouldn't be surprised to see Memorial Day deals running until the Wednesday afterwards (May 31st).  

What to expect from Memorial Day PS5 deals in 2023


(Image credit: Future)

More than two years on from the launch of the PlayStation 5, stock of the next-gen console is now regularly available. We're expecting retailers to slash the price of various bundles, such as the official God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West PS5 bundles. The former recently took a $50 discount to $509 and there's a chance it might slip underneath the $500 mark.

Outside of Memorial Day, there are few opportunities throughout the year to pick up some cheap PS5 games either. Sony's first-party titles, now arriving at an MSRP of $70, will be the ones to keep an eye on. Think The Last of Us Part 1, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, God of War Ragnarok, Marvel's Spider-Man, Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon's Souls, Horizon: Forbidden West and Gran Turismo 7. New 2023 releases in general, such as Resident Evil 4 Remake, Star Wars Jedi: Surivivor, Forspoken and Dead Space Remake will all likely drop in price too. We've already seen the first price cut for Star Wars Jedi: Survivor recently. 

With PSVR 2 released onto the market, Sony will be wanting to entice more PS5 owners to pick up the VR hardware. While only available for a few months, we can see some further incentives being added to the PSVR 2 Horizon Call of the Mountain bundle, be that a small price cut or another game added. 

Another good opportunity will be accessories. After a new PS5 DualSense controller? Or fancy picking up a Sony Pulse 3D wireless headset? How about a Thrustmaster racing wheel to take Gran Turismo to the next level? All of this and more will be available at cheaper prices than usual, if history is anything to go off. We'd also check out PS Plus deals, with annual offers commonly being slashed or even a cheaper way to upgrade to PS Plus Extra or PS Plus Premium. 

We're rounding up plenty more offers, including the best PS5 price and bundles on the market today, the best cheap PS5 game sales as well as the best cheap PS5 SSD deals in May 2023. Additionally, we're also rounding up the best Memorial Day laptop deals and Memorial Day monitor deals as well. Or if you want to experience the latest next-gen games in style, take a look at the best Memorial Day TV deals
