Stay stocked up

There's plenty to look forward to on PlayStation, as the teams at PlayStation Studios are hard at work on a slate of upcoming games. Looking ahead, exciting exclusives like Marvel's Spider-Man 2 are a great reason to grab a PS5.

Switching to digital codes is a great way to make sure you've got physical space for games, as you can always just redownload something instead of having to keep track of a disc and reinstall it. Staying loaded up on PlayStation Store Gift Cards is an added bonus, as instead of having to bother with keeping your credit card stored on your PS5, you can just grab a game from your existing balance whenever the mood strikes, no secure information required.
