January Sale 2023: Best PS VR Deals

For as long as the January sale of 2023 continues to be the gift that keeps on giving, we might as well keep singing “'tis the season to be jolly” further into the new year. If you own a PS VR, you're in luck, because Sony is offering some enticing game deals in January.

Even though there aren't as many PS VR deals available right now, likely due to the PS VR 2 model that is soon set to launch in February 2023, there still are some game deals that are sure to catch one's eye. Out of all the latest PS VR discounts, here are the January Sale 2023: Best PS VR deals you don't want to miss checking out.

5. Tekken 7

Tekken 7 – Launch Trailer | PS4

Before: $49.99

Now: $9.99

Price cut: 80%

If you’re an action or Tekken fan, you might want to grab yourself a copy of the Tekken 7 PS VR mode while the offer lasts. Ideally, Tekken 7 can be played on a PlayStation 4 console. However, you can also plug in your PS VR headset to immerse yourself in the virtual reality world.

At its core, Tekken 7 is a fighting game that has the potential to get personal. You can choose to play the game just for the fun of it. But when push comes to shove, it’s up to you to put mercy aside and show off the skills you learned during training. 

While Tekken 7 is probably the best Tekken game so far in terms of mechanics, characters, and modes, there are some undeniable issues in VR that some gamers may not take lightly. Is the game good or bad? Well, it depends. 

If you’re a hardcore fighter, you might get past any technicalities. However, if you have a keen eye, the weird camera angles, endless fighting sequences, simplified controls, and lack of health bars might get to you. In any case, Tekken 7 is a delight that can best be described as interactive theater. Go on, grab your copy right here.

4. Star Wars: Squadrons

One of the games that won the hearts of many critics is Persona 5. Then there are rhythm-based games, which feel effortless to play. Persona 5: Dancing in Starlight is a rhythm game that brings to life one of the awkward scenarios you may have seen in heist films. 

Imagine you’re part of a pack of Phantom Thieves. While making a run for it, you come face-to-face with Velvet Room residents at a mysterious dance party. Of course, there will be a moment of silence to fully absorb how awkward the situation is. Then, you’ll have to come up with the wildest escape plan and put on a performance they’ll never forget.

The only thing that takes the whole idea to the next level is VR. There’s no better way to bring to life dancing in the Persona 5 super stylish realm than in virtual reality.

Before: $59.99

Price cut: 75%

I might have been beside myself with hurt had The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR not been on offer. Lucky for us all, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim completely reimagined epic fantasy masterpiece now has a mouthwatering 75% price cut on Sony.

There are far too many words to describe how worthwhile it is to play The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It’s all things immersive, massive, and deeply detailed in its own right. When crossed over to virtual reality, the ancient dragons, rugged mountains, and deep stories come to life in their rawest forms.

To further sweeten the deal, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR includes all official add-ons like Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn so you definitely have plenty of meat to the bone to get you started. Check out the latest offer here.

1. Farpoint

Farpoint - Story Trailer | PS VR

Before: $19.99

Now: $9.99

Price cut: 50%

Last but not least, Sony is offering a 50% price cut on the critically acclaimed, riveting space adventure, Farpoint. The entire concept of virtual reality is to transport oneself from one's surroundings into a completely new and different aura. Farpoint does exactly that, taking you from your living room into a hostile alien planet in space.

Your mission is to find and rescue scientists who have gone missing while investigating an anomaly near Jupiter. Little do you know that this is exactly where the fun begins. The aim controller works uniquely well and the graphics and sound are near perfect. There are some clunky parts. Weapon variety feels limited. 

If Farpoint wasn’t in VR, it’d feel like a basic shooter. However, if you ignore the novelty challenges, there is an unrivaled experience of trekking on the sand in space: an aspect that can only improve with time from here on out. Hurry, check out the offer here.
