The video game Marvel's Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4 (opens in new tab) is down to $39.99 at Amazon. The game was released last September, and, while we've seen a couple deals before, this is one of its best ever as it normally sells for $60. It was offered at this price for Black Friday last year at select retailers.

If you like playing as a Marvel superhero, enjoy open-world sandbox games that take you all over a fairly realistic portrayal of New York City, and want to fight crime by slinging webs, then this is the game for you. It has been a huge success for the PlayStation and Insomniac Games, the renowned developers. One of the most anticipated games of the year, Marvel's Spider-Man has found approval from fans and critics with a high rating of 87 on Metacritic.

Our Android Central review gave it 4.5 stars out of 5 and said "It couldn't be more clear this was a labor of love crafted by folks who genuinely enjoy every facet of the universe they were invited to be a part of. The story is unique yet familiar, the combat natural while complex, and there's a constant focus on Spider-Man and his immediate connections I deeply appreciated."

If you're not finished shopping just yet, Red Dead Redemption 2 is on sale for $40 at Amazon right now too!

J.D. Levite has been in the deals game since 2012. He has posted daily deals at Gizmodo, The Wirecutter, The Sweethome, and now for Thrifter. He was there for the first Prime Day and has braved the full force of Black Friday. If you cut him, he bleeds savings. But don't try it for real. That's a metaphor.
