Metal Gear Solid series creator Hideo Kojima’s latest game, Death Stranding, is a little different than most big-budget video games. It’s less about shooting or sneaking your way through intense firefights and more about delivering packages across gorgeous, desolate landscapes. That’s not going to be for everyone, but for those who click with it, it could be one of the best games of the year. You can only get it on PS4 right now, though a PC version will be coming next year.
If you’re curious about playing Death Stranding, you can do it relatively cheaply, as long as you plan to spend some money on PSN in the near future. There aren’t many great game discounts left in the aftermath of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but the best deal we’ve seen on Death Stranding is through Ebay, which is offering a brand-new copy of the game plus a $20 PSN gift card (email delivery) for $60, free shipping included. With that offer, you’re effectively getting the game for just $40, which is by far the best discount you’ll find on it this holiday season.
In fact, this is the only worthwhile deal we’ve seen on Death Stranding over the past week, so if you’re planning to pick it up for yourself or someone else this holiday season, we’d suggest jumping on this deal.
GameSpot’s review awarded Death Stranding a 9/10. “It’s positive without ignoring pain; in fact, it argues in both its story and its gameplay that adversity itself is what makes things worth doing and life worth living,” wrote Kallie Plagge. “It’s a game that requires patience, compassion, and love, and it’s also one we really need right now.”
