The latest from the tech company, it sports a detailed picture, thanks to its massive 65-inch 4K display. Sony’s state-of-the-art Processor X1 powers this beauty for true-to-life visuals, while HDR (High Dynamic Range) settings make sure colors stay bright and black levels stay dark.

“Wonderful so far! It’s beautiful! I am so excited to have it, and I can’t wait to watch football and hockey,” shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. “I feel like I am in a movie theater.”

The Xbox Series X/S just came out a few weeks ago, so it’s very unlikely we’ll see the console or any of its games on sale anytime soon. But hidden deep on microsoft.com, you’ll find Watch Dogs: Legion on sale. Right now, you can score this title for half off, down from $60 to just $30. The third installment of this widely popular video game series would make a great gift for someone on your list.

This action/adventure game from Ubisoft takes place in a near future where London is on the verge of collapse. All-seeing surveillance state and private military are in control, while the fate of the city is in the hands of DedSec, a hacker group that wants to fight back for freedom. It’s as fun as it sounds. And for $20 off? A steal.
