Gamers are notoriously keen for a bargain - the closely followed Steam sales are a prime example - so it's no surprise that people are always on the lookout for big deals on PlayStation 4 consoles and games, including the popular PlayStation VR headset.

This year is a particularly good year for PlayStation 4 discounts thanks to the launch of Microsoft's 4K-capable Xbox One X - Sony is doing everything it can to convince players to eschew the Xbox and stick with them.

Best PS4 deals right now

There are huge gaming discounts year-round, and here we've rounded up a few of the best PS4 deals on the market right now - head to our deals site to find more of our curated picks.

Naturally console bundles are among the most requested bargains. It's become pretty typical to see a PS4 Slim with one game for around £230, so look particularly for prices that drop below that, or bundles with even more games or an additional controller.

The PS4 Pro is more expensive, but right now you can often find it together with a game or two for £300. Given the additional horsepower, that makes it a very compelling alternative to the Slim, so the Pro is easy to recommend.

PlayStation VR bundles are even more sought-after. While the headset is officially £350, it's easy to find bundled with one game for around £300 or even £250, including the Camera - which is a necessary accessory, in case you don't already own it.

Naturally, loads of PS4 and PSVR games are available for low prices too - look for new releases at £35 or below, while older games often drop to just £10 or £15.
