Our headline deal this weekend is perfect for anyone who missed out on the inaugural chapter of the reimagined version of Final Fantasy 7 — and who has their calendar cleared for the entirety of March. The PlayStation Store is currently offering a complimentary copy of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade when you pre-order Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, which launches on Feb. 29. (yes, February has 29 days in it this year, we checked).
If remixed RPGs aren’t your thing, Humble is offering a solid bundle featuring some of the all-stars from the AGDQ 2024 speedrunning fundraiser, or you can check out discounts on an awesome collection of digital movies, or an collector’s edition box set that any undead will gush over.
In addition to sharing our favorite deals from the worlds of gaming and entertainment, we’ve also included the best-selling products that have made a recent appearance on our site.
The best gaming deals this week
Purchasing the $69.99 Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth Twin Pack is the savviest way to catch up on the reimagined RPG from Square Enix without spending more than you need to. The Twin Pack, which is currently available to pre-order exclusively from the PlayStation Store and nowhere else, includes Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth and Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, complete with the extra content that focuses on Yuffie. You’ll get Remake Intergrade immediately upon purchase, so you can play it while you wait. Unless you already own Remake, there’s no reason not to opt for the Twin Pack.
The Final Fantasy 7 Remake takes place exclusively in Midgar, but the second chapter promises to feature a much larger slice of the original game, in addition to a host of new content not present in the original 1997 iteration of Final Fantasy 7 — possibly including some controversial plot remixes.
The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered launched this week on PS5, bringing a litany of graphical enhancements and new ways to experience the post-apocalyptic epic from Naughty Dog. If you were planning to pick up a copy and you haven’t yet had the opportunity to play the remastered version of The Last of Us Part One, Antonline is currently offering copies of both games together for $79.99, a $40 discount on their prices combined. While you can upgrade to The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered for $10 if you already own a copy for the PlayStation 4, this discount is a great way to pick up both titles if you’re jumping in fresh.
