Returnal: Cheapest copies in Australia of this PS5 banger
Returnal launched in Australia today with an eye-watering RRP of $124.95. Fortunately, it's possible to get it cheaper if you know where to look.
Returnal is a new PlayStation 5 exclusive that promises tough, Dark Souls-style action in a futuristic fantasy world. If you're keen to show off what your PS5 can do, Returnal is a solid candidate - unlike a lot of other PlayStation 5 games, it's not an enhanced port of a PS4 game. Instead, it was built specifically for the system and it shows.
Here's the official spiel about the game from Sony:
"After crash-landing on this shape-shifting world, Selene must search through the barren landscape of an ancient civilization for her escape. Isolated and alone, she finds herself fighting tooth and nail for survival. Again and again, she's defeated – forced to restart her journey every time she dies.
Through relentless roguelike gameplay, you'll discover that just as the planet changes with every cycle, so do the items at your disposal. Every loop offers new combinations, forcing you to push your boundaries and approach combat with a different strategy each time."
Instead of paying $124.95 (or over) for this game, make sure to get it on discount. Here are the cheapest copies of Returnal we could find from Australian retailers in ascending order.

For example, JB Hi-Fi has the game for $109, while EB Games is selling it for $124.95. It therefore pays to do some research and attempt to get a price match from your preferred retailer.
