You probably knew already that it’s May 4th, or the Star Wars-themed May the Fourth (be with you) day. Lots of retailers are discounting their Star Wars stuff, and it’s led to some of today’s best deals — that is, if you like Star Wars or are at least curious about it. Best Buy, Amazon, and Walmart are offering each Star Wars film in UHD Blu-ray for $17, down from around $30. It’s a good deal if you care about owning physical copies and have a device like an Xbox One S, Series X, a PS5 with a disc drive, or just a standard 4K Blu-ray player that can get the most from this kind of disc.
Each of these films also includes the film in 1080p (so it’ll work in non 4K Blu-ray players), as well as a digital code. Speaking of digital, if all you care about is getting them all in digital form, you can get the nine-movie Skywalker Saga collection in 4K (containing each of the three trilogies) for $70 at the Microsoft Store and Vudu. Of course, if you have a subscription to Disney Plus, you can stream them all (plus other Star Wars shows like The Mandalorian and Star Wars: The Bad Batch) on that service.
Best Buy has the lowest price today on some excellent Star Wars games, including Star Wars: Squadrons for PS4 and Xbox One (includes a free next-gen patch) for $17. You’ll do a lot of first-person aerial dogfighting in that one. The PlayStation version supports PSVR, which is great if you have one of those VR headsets.
If a third-person game where you use Force powers and a lightsaber sound more appealing to you, check out Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order. It’s even more affordable at $15 for PS4 and Xbox One, and owners of the game will be treated to a complimentary next-gen update for PS5 and Xbox Series X / S sometime this summer, according to Disney. It recently received a patch that enhanced its performance in backwards compatibility mode on the consoles, though.
