Why is stock so scarce? Because the PS4 is near the end of its life. At the start of this year, Sony confirmed that it was stopping production of all but one model of PS4 in Japan, the 500GB Slim Jet Black model. This followed one eagle-eyed Twitter user spotting a Japanese shop claiming certain models were no longer being produced. Supply has been scarce for a few months now. Expect pickings to get slimmer still.
Of what is available, PS4 bundles – the console plus some games or an extra controller – offer the best value for money. Whether you're a fan of FIFA 21, Spider-Man or The Last of Us, chances are there's a cut-price PS4 bundle featuring your favourite games.
Now, let's get down to business. Here are the best PS4 deals available right now.
