It’s becoming less and less cost effective to preorder or buy games in advance as the costs of consoles rise. If, in a few months, the identical game can be had for 30 percent or more off the retail price and the game-breaking flaws will also have been resolved. The built-in function in the PS5 lets you know when certain games are on sale, which is helpful if you’ve been unable to afford PS5 titles. Any time the price reduces on the games you’ve added to your wishlist, you’ll be notified through email.

Add titles to your wishlist and set up price decrease notifications with these instructions.

It’s not just the PlayStation Store on your console that allows you to wishlist PS5 titles, but also the PlayStation App on your phone. Open one of these two and look for a game you’ve been admiring for a while. If you see anything you like, click the love button to save it to your wishlist. PlayStation app users may access their wishlists at any time by clicking the heart icon in the top-right corner of the store tab, which is the button in the middle of the bottom bar.

If you have a PlayStation 5 with the PlayStation Shop installed, you may access the store page for any game you choose. It’s right there next to the Buy button, so you can click the Wishlist icon and add it to your shopping cart. Open the PlayStation Store on your PS5 and click the heart icon in the top bar to see your wishlist of recently purchased content.

Price decrease alerts are best utilized through the PlayStation App on your smartphone (iPhone/Android) because you won’t constantly be using your console. Start by logging in with your PlayStation account. Then choose Settings from the bottom-left of the screen by tapping on the controller symbol. Scroll down to the Accounts and offers section by tapping Push notifications. You’ll want to make sure Wishlist Updates are turned on.

Finally, under the PlayStation App’s settings on your smartphone, activate notifications. That’s all there is to it! Notifications from the PlayStation App will alert you when a game on your wishlist goes on sale.

Additionally, the PS5 can remind you when titles on your wishlist are on sale. On your PS5, press the up-arrow button on the controller to bring up your home screen, where you can then pick Settings and the Notifications menu.

Pop-up notifications should be enabled. Then, under Wishlist Updates, select Show Pop-Ups to enable them. Pop-ups appear throughout games, when watching videos, and even when you’re live-streaming.
