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 game, as well as additional PS4 accessories.

2020 is a great year for the PlayStation, with huge new games like Cyberpunk 2077 and The Last of Us Part 2 due for release - and let's not forget about the PS5's "holiday 2020" release - so it's a great time to pick up a console if you haven't already.

Best PS4 deals this January

There are great gaming discounts to be found in the January sales. We’ve rounded up the best PS4 deals for you, right here.

Naturally, console bundles are among the most requested bargains. It’s become pretty typical to see a 500GB PS4 Slim with a game for £250, or the 1TB model for £300, so less than this is a bit of a bargain. Look for prices that drop below those, or bundles with even more games or an additional controller and other accessories.

The PS4 Pro is a little more expensive, but is worthwhile if you’ve got a 4K TV  or plan on getting one in the near future. If you have, the PS4 Pro will help you future-proof and enhance your overall gaming experience. Given the additional horsepower, it’s a very compelling alternative to the Slim and is easy to recommend. You’ll find bundles available for £350, so any less than that for the Pro is a good deal.

PlayStation VR bundles are sought-after, too. While the headset is officially available for around £200, you can often find bundles with additional games or other extras. Check out our separate round-up of VR deals for more on this.

Of course, 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.

Where to find PS4 deals

Most major game retailers do discounts in the January sales. The best places to look are the likes of Amazon, Game, Currys and Argos

When is Black Friday 2020 - should you wait for a better deal?

Black Friday will take place on Friday 27 November, immediately followed by Cyber Monday on 30 November. Traditionally the biggest sales event of the year, it may yet throw up some even greater tech deals - but with so much uncertainty around finance and retail, and no guarantees regarding what discounts we will see, we advise you not to wait: if you see a deal you like, on a product you need, and you can afford the outlay, buy it today.
