Today’s best PS4 deals – April 2020
With the current situation, we’re beginning to see some quite significant stock shortages in the gaming world. The Nintendo Switch is now scarce, and the PS4 isn’t too far behind. You can still get your hands on either the Slim or Pro model, but it’ll be tough to find many deals that take the consoles far below RRP. Unfortunately, we’re not likely to see this situation change until we have a bit more clarity on the overall situation, and the supply chain is back to normal.
Even though the PS5 is a matter of months away now, details are still very thin on the ground. We still don’t know when it’ll launch, how much it’ll cost, or even what it looks like. Because of this, deals on the PS4 console have been quite slow to start 2020. There are still some solid bundles out there, which give you extra games for buying either the PS4 Slim or Pro at RRP. Keep your eyes on Console Deals for all the latest news on the PS5, as we’re expecting some big sales to begin on the PS4 almost as soon as we get concrete details about its successor.
Learn more about the PS4
With more than 100 million units now sold, the PS4 is one of the most successful games platforms of all time – and with good reason. Huge exclusive titles, world-class third parties and an enormous player base mean it’s hard to go wrong when it comes to buying a PS4. Don’t be put off by the PS5 being just 12 months away – the PS4 has enough to keep you busy for years to come!
What’s more, PS4 is currently the only platform where those with a thing for VR can get their fix. The PSVR headset is one of the most affordable ways to jump into this relatively new gaming platform, linking up seamlessly with any PS4 console to open up a new world of play and interaction. PlayStation has already confirmed that all existing PSVR headsets will remain compatible with PS5, so there’s no reason to put off playing it on PS4.
The added benefits of buying a PS4 Pro
It’s becoming more and more common for manufacturers to launch alternate versions of each of their consoles in order to maximise their potential and help it appeal to casual and hardcore gamers alike. The PlayStation 4 is no exception. The Slim edition in an update on the original console, and is now the most commonly available version, coming in the majority of our bundles above.
However, if you’re someone who wants the most comprehensive PS4 experience possible, there is an alternative. 2016 saw the launch of the PS4 Pro, a significant upgrade on the original and Slim consoles. As we near the PS5 launch as well, we’re starting to see some very enticing drops in the PS4 Pro’s price as well, with some deals coming within £50 of the Slim – not much given the boost in performance you get between the two consoles!
We’ve included a full breakdown of the technical specifications that differ between the Pro and base models below, but the key differences are:
