Elden’s Ring has been the subject of talks in the city since its premiere at the end of February. It has taken over the game discourse landscape for a reason. If you primarily play games on Sony’s PlayStation, now is the perfect time to jump into the open world of FromSoftware in the acclaimed dark fantasy “Souls-like” formula. Amazon has physical PS4 and PS5 versions of the Elden Ring for $ 49.94 – a discount of around $ 10.
That might not sound like a big cut in price, but so far the only sales of this hot title have been on the Xbox and PC versions. Plus, if you consider how many hours you can transfer into The Lands Between (many of us Borderland exceeded the 100-hour limit just after the first playthrough), this makes it an even more significant value proposition. And if you get stuck, our buddies on Polygon we have written extensive guides to help you break free. Read our review.
Even if you’re a PlayStation player, this next Xbox deal still applies to you. The Microsoft Xbox Stereo Headset has plunged again to its low of $ 45 at Walmart. This wired headset may look like a proprietary Xbox product, but its 3.5mm headphone cable means it can work just as well on a PS4 or PS5 by plugging it into a controller. One of its handiest features – a rotating ear cup that adjusts the volume – even works on Xbox and PlayStation consoles. The flexible compatibility of this headset also extends to PC and Nintendo Switch.
While there are plenty of great headsets out there that offer many more features, the Xbox Stereo Headset is a great option if you want something that is a little nicer than most useless options on the market. The audio quality may not be the best for music, but it sounds good for games and is paired with a good mic. Read our review.
If you’re looking for a Chromebook that’s more of a laptop than a tablet, the Lenovo Flex 5 is the perfect mid-range option that won’t break the bank or feel too cheap. The 13-inch Flex 5 costs $ 299 at Best Buy – that’s a saving of $ 120 off the regular price of $ 419. It is the entry-level model with a Pentium 7505 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of eMMC memory. So while it won’t win many specification wars, it offers a lot at this discounted price, including one of the best backlit keyboards out of any Chromebooks we use.
The Lenovo Flex 5 also has a much better selection of ports than most Chromebooks in this price range, featuring a microSD card slot and USB-C connectors on both sides. Its main caveat is battery life, but if you don’t travel often, it’s great to use as a traditional laptop or to fold into touchscreen tent mode. Read our review.
Our last major deal for today is the one we covered earlier this week, but it’s so good it’s worth mentioning again before the sale ends. The Roborock S7 robot vacuum cleaner currently costs $ 479.99 on Amazon after clicking on the coupon on the $ 170 page. This hybrid vacuum cleaner and mop usually costs $ 649.99 and comes with lots of great features like spot cleaning, mapping software to navigate your home more efficiently, and even automatically picks up the mop as you roll over the carpet. You can get the same S7 vacuum in the Plus version, which includes a self-emptying dock for around $ 950, but rest assured you can save money and skip that extra cost as it has the unfortunate tendency to clog up.
While battery life could be better, the Roborock S7 is one of our top picks for the best robotic vacuum cleaners you can buy, and it’s the best mop hybrid overall. This sale, set to expire tomorrow, makes it an even better buy. Read our review.
