Best PS5 Gifts For 2020: PlayStation Gift Ideas, Games, And More

The PlayStation 5 released in November, kicking off a new generation of gaming for PlayStation fans. The PS5 launch included an exciting lineup of titles like Demon’s Souls and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, but it was also marked by a disappointing lack of stock available at retailers. Unless you were someone who preordered as soon as listings went live in September, you’ve pretty much been out of luck the past few months. There have been PS5 restocks, including ones on launch day and Black Friday, but those have been prone to site crashes and quick sellout. We’ve included the PS5 as part of our PlayStation gift guide this year as Sony has promised more PS5 inventory will be sent to retailers before the end of the year, but just keep in mind you may have trouble buying the new console. (See our PS5 restock guide for more details.)

However, you may also be shopping for someone who was lucky enough to buy a PS5 and has happily been playing it for the past month or so. Maybe your PlayStation fan is satisfied to keep gaming on their PS4 for the time being. Either way, you might be wondering what to gift them this year, and to help you out, we’ve rounded up the best PlayStation gifts for 2020. Naturally, the PS5 is on this list, but there’s no shortage of games, accessories, collectibles, and merchandise available as well.

This holiday season is absolutely packed with huge PS4 and PS5 games, and there are plenty of new figures, art books, and more for gamers to add to their collection. Marquee titles like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Cyberpunk 2077, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla join the vast library of great PlayStation games along with gems from earlier this year like The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and Final Fantasy VII Remake.

PS5 and PS4 games

It’s looking to be one of the biggest holiday seasons for games in quite a while. First-party launch games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls have spiked a huge amount of interest in the PlayStation 5, and the highly anticipated Cyberpunk 2077 is out soon as well. Even if you can’t snag a PS5 before Christmas, you can buy your loved one PS4 games as they will still run on PS5 in the future (due to backwards-compatibility), and many new PS4 games come with a free next-gen upgrade as well.

PlayStation art books

Sometimes a game is so good, you want to dive even deeper into its world, and an art book is a great way of doing so. Fortunately, Sony has a ton of them for its best games, and they make great gifts as well. These hardcover books are full of gorgeous art, in-depth information about the game’s world, and usually behind-the-scenes development details. If your loved one is a fan of any of the following PlayStation games, an art book will be the perfect addition to their collection.
