Ring of Elden been talked about since its release at the end of February. It has invaded the landscape of gaming discourse, and for good reason. If you primarily play games on Sony’s PlayStation consoles, now’s a great time to jump into FromSoftware’s open-world take on its acclaimed “Souls-like” dark fantasy formula. Amazon has both the PS4 and PS5 physical versions of Elden Ring for $49.94 – about $10 off.
That might not seem like a huge price cut, but the only sales on this hot title so far have been on the Xbox and PC versions. Plus, when you factor in how many hours you can dedicate to The Lands Between (many of us at The edge passed the 100 hour mark on our first playthrough alone), that makes it an even greater value proposition. And if you’re stuck, our friends at Polygon have written detailed guides to help you unlock. Read our review.
Even if you’re a PlayStation gamer, this upcoming Xbox deal is still applicable to you. Microsoft The Xbox Stereo Headset has dropped to its lowest price of $45 again at Walmart. This wired headset may look like a proprietary product for Xbox, but its 3.5mm headset cable means it can work equally well on a PS4 or PS5 by plugging it into the controller. One of its handiest features – the rotating earpiece 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 plenty of other features, the Xbox Stereo Headset is great value for money if you want something a little nicer than the more basic options on the market. The audio quality might not be the best for music, but it sounds great for gaming and is paired with a good microphone. Read our review.
If you’re looking for a Chromebook that feels more like a laptop than a tablet, the Lenovo Flex 5 is a perfect midrange option that doesn’t break the bank or look too cheap. the The 13-inch Flex 5 is down to $299 at Best Buy – a saving of $120 off its regular price of $419. It’s a base model with a Pentium 7505 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of eMMC storage. So while it won’t win many spec wars, it does offer a lot at this discounted price, including and one of the best backlit keyboards of any Chromebook we’ve used.

Its main caveat is battery life, but unless you travel frequently it’s ideal to use as a traditional laptop or folded into tent mode with its touchscreen. Read our review.
Our last main deal for today is the one we covered earlier this week, but it’s such a good one that it’s worth mentioning again before the sale ends. the The Roborock S7 robot vacuum currently costs $479.99 on Amazon, when you click the $170 coupon on the page. This hybrid vacuum and mop typically sells for $649.99 and offers lots of great features, like spot cleaning, mapping software to navigate your home more efficiently, and it even automatically lifts its mop when it rolls over. carpeting. You can get the same S7 vacuum cleaner in a Plus version that includes a self-emptying docking station for around $950, but rest assured you can save some cash and avoid that extra cost, as it has a tendency to clog up.
While battery life might be better, the Roborock S7 is one of our top picks for the best robot vacuums you can buy, and it’s the best hybrid with a mop. This sale, which is due to expire tomorrow, makes it an even better buy. Read our review.
