Hold the front page, PS5 consoles are officially on sale right now. Not only that, but it's a proper standalone discount as well, not a bundle deal like we've seen before. As part of PlayStation's Summer Sale, PlayStation 5 consoles have seen an impressive discount of up to £80 in the UK. The PlayStation has been a massive success for Sony, selling over 40 million units as of July 16, 2023, putting it only slightly behind the sales pace of PS4 (likely due to the previous semiconductor shortage).
But this shortage is absolutely over, and with the console well stocked it's also now on sale. In the UK, The console can now be bought for £404.99 from Amazon or John Lewis, and £399 from retailers like Argos, Currys, and ShopTo. There is currently no word on a discount in the US, but we're anticipating this will happen sooner or later so keep an eye on this page or @IGNDeals for further updates.
Spider-Man 2 PS5 bundle and its accessory preorders are also live today at 10 AM local time, or 7 AM PT in the US, so it's a big day for PlayStation owners. We'll leave all the relevant links you need here but don't forget that there are also a bunch of other deals to check out today for PlayStation fans in the UK.
This includes games like The Last of Us on sale, new deals on DualSense Controllers, and even discounts on PS5-compatible SSDs. For folks in the US, we've already got a handy PlayStation deals roundup to explore, but as we're nice we'll also add a few of the new deals in here once they go live.
