Wondering where to buy a PS5 at a bargain price? Good news: a huge surge of PS5 stock is hitting the UK and US this week. Amazon US has dropped fresh P55 stock, while John Lewis, Argos and Amazon UK are tipped to drop any minute...
Amazon US dropped PS5 stock on Thursday 21st January, around 10am ET / 3pm GMT, catching some gamers unawares. The inventory has now sold out but more is set to be released in the coming days – keep a close eye on Amazon's website.
We're also hearing reports that Amazon UK is due PS5 stock from 1st February. John Lewis is also rumoured to release PS5 stock on the 2nd February, while Argos is rumoured to be overdue a huge PS5 stock drop.
With demand so high, making a saving won't be easy. But retailers are getting creative and offering the best PS5 deals on some of the best PS5 games, rather than the consoles themselves. So there are savings to be had.
We're also hoping for PS5 deals that combine Sony's console with additional PS5 DualSense wireless controllers or its handy Media Remote (the PS5 Pulse 3D gaming headset is currently sold out everywhere).
In other words, you won't be left empty-handed. Read on and we'll run down the best PS5 deals available right now.
- Our pick of the best PS5 games for picture and sound
How much does a PS5 cost?
The recommended retail price of the PS5 is £449 ($499, €499, AU$749). Too expensive? You can grab a disc-less PS5 Digital Edition for £359 ($399, €399, AU$599). Read our full PS5 vs PS5 Digital Edition comparison for a full breakdown of the two machines.
You'll find the latest savings (if there are any to be had yet) below.
Best PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition deals
Best PS5 accessory deals
PS5 DualSense Wireless Controller
The PS5 only comes with one controller in the box, so a second controller is a must for those who want to get stuck into multi-player gaming. The PS5 DualSense (£59.99, $69.99, AU$109) boasts improved haptic feedback and adaptive triggers that deliver a more immersive experience. So while you can use the PS4 DualShock with the PS5, it doesn't offer the new features of the PS5 controller. We've listed today's best PS5 controller prices below.
PS5 Pulse 3D Wireless Headset
Not only does the PS5 offer 4K HDR gaming, it also has 3D audio. But if you want to enjoy it – and you do, because it's one of the console's best features – you'll need one of these. The Pulse 3D Wireless Headset launched at £89.95 ($99.99, AU$159) but we've listed today's cheapest deals below. Not convinced? Then you might like to have a peek at our pick of the best gaming headsets for all consoles.
PS5 HD Camera
This new camera peripheral (£50, $60, AU$100) lets you add yourself to gameplay videos or video chat during multiplayer marathons. It works with the DualSense controller's 'Create' button, so you can jump into the PS5's video editing functions. You can actually use the old PS4 camera with the PS5, but the new PS5 HD camera ups the quality. For the best prices on this handy accessory, cast your eyes over the box below.
PS5 Media Remote
Want to use your PS5 as an entertainment hub? The PlayStation 5 Media Remote (£24.99, $29.99, AU$49) is a handy remote that will help you navigate everything from Netflix to 4K Blu-ray discs. If you want to use your PS5 as a media streamer, it's a must-have and doesn't cost the earth. Here's our pick of today's best Sony PS5 Media Remote deals.
PS5 DualSense Charging Station
This nifty dock allows you to charge up two wireless DualSense controllers simultaneously, so you need never be powerless. It's become a bit of a hot buy and sold out ahead of the PS5 launch. It's easier to come by these days, and most big retailers have stock. Fancy a PS5 DualSense Charging Station (£24.99, $29.99, AU$49)? You'll find all the cheapest prices below.
When will more PS5 deals show up?
Most stockists are currently sold out but restocks are often (if fleeting).
We're also hearing reports that Amazon UK is due PS5 stock from 1st February. John Lewis is also rumoured to release PS5 stock by the 2nd February, while Argos is rumoured to be overdue a huge PS5 stock drop.
BT, EE and Smyths Toys were all tipped to release fresh PS5 stock as soon as the 21st January but that has yet to materialise. In the States, Best Buy and Target also seem to be restocking fairly regularly.
Here's all the latest pointers on where to buy a PS5.
As for deals, Black Friday saw a slew of gaming discounts – mostly on legacy consoles. With the PS5 and Xbox Series X hogging all the headlines, there are plenty of PS4 deals and Xbox One deals to be had this winter.
Some of the best PS5 deals are to be had on games. Amazon is currently offering US gamers up to $10 off selected titles. While over at Walmart, you can pick up FIFA21 for
$60 $29 – it's the PS4 version but it includes a free upgrade to the PS5 version. Given that most PS5 titles will run you at least £60 ($60, AU$100), that a cracking deal.
Meanwhile Best Buy members can get $10 in rewards when they purchase PS5 titles such as Far Cry 6 and Watch Dogs: Legion. Not a Best Buy member? It's free to join.
And, of course, there are plenty of deals to be had on the best gaming TVs. Sony has even certified selected models 'Ready for PS5', thus giving you an even better reason to splash out on a new screen.
Fancy a freebie? Sony is currently offering gamers a 7-day free trial of PlayStation Now, which includes access to the PS5 PlayStation Plus Collection (a selection of 20 games that had previously released on PS4, including God of War and The Last of Us: Remastered). We've also spotted some cheap PlayStation Plus deals lurking around.
So, although getting your hands on a PS5 console is currently a bit of a mission, we're expecting more and more PS5 deals to show up – including savings in the January sales. Game on!
