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, in the January sales.
2018 was a great year for the PlayStation, with huge new games including God of War, Marvel’s Spider-Man and the incredible Red Dead Redemption 2, so it's a great time to pick up a console if you haven't already.
Best PS4 deals right now
There are gaming discounts all year round, but during the January Sales, they’re bigger and better than ever. We’ve rounded up the best PS4 deals of January 2019.
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 £330, 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, and 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.
