I've been holding off on buying Diablo 4, but Prime Day 2 just provided me with the perfect excuse to splash out on a copy. While I was originally keeping a look out for PS5 version discounts, you can actually pick up the cross-gen bundle right now for less. At a glance, it'll look like you're buying the game just for PS4, but don't let its blue banner fool you, as it'll actually let you upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free.

Over at Amazon, the Diablo 4 cross gen bundle is down from $69.99 to $47.49 thanks to a 47% Big Deal Days discount. While it might feel like paying $49.99 for the PS5 edition is the better offer, the free upgrade included with the the PS4 edition  means there's no real difference between the two. Sure, you'll need to download the free update to take full advantage of this PS5 Prime Day Deal, but with Blizzard's RPG being online only, you'll have to involve your internet in one way or another anyway.

Diablo 4 Cross Gen Bundle | $69.99 $47.49 at Amazon
Save $22.50 - This version of the infernal RPG provides access to both the PS4 and PS5 versions of the game, and with 47% off, it costs less than the standalone PS5 release.

Buy it if: 

 You enjoy isometric RPGs
You're looking for a chonky campaign 

Don't buy it if:

❌ You've not got time in your life for another RPG
❌ You're looking for something more story driven

Simply put, if you buy the Diablo 4 Cross Gen Bundle, you'll end up with both the PS4 and PS5 version of the RPG romp. This is something that appeals to me in particular, as I still use my trusty PlayStation 4 in my office. Opting for the PlayStation 5 version means you'll naturally only be able to play it on Sony's latest console, and as someone who hangs onto old consoles, I prefer to keep my options open.

I’ve been messing around with PCs, video game consoles, and tech since before I could speak. Don’t get me wrong, I kickstarted my relationship with technology by jamming a Hot Wheels double-decker bus into my parent’s VCR, but we all have to start somewhere. I even somehow managed to become a walking, talking buyer’s guide at my teenage supermarket job, which helped me accept my career fate. So, rather than try to realise my musician dreams, or see out my University degree, I started running my own retro pop culture site and writing about video games and tech for the likes of TechRadar, The Daily Star, and the BBC before eventually ending up with a job covering graphics card shenanigans at PCGamesN. Now, I’m your friendly neighbourhood Hardware Editor at GamesRadar, and it’s my job to make sure you can kick butt in all your favourite games using the best gaming hardware, whether you’re a sucker for handhelds like the Steam Deck and Nintendo Switch or a hardcore gaming PC enthusiast.
