Demand for cheap PS4 bundles has skyrocketed of late all around the world thanks to Coronavirus forcing millions of people to stay at home more. This has made it extra hard to find stock, even at the biggest of stores. We're seeing a lot of third-party sellers on stores hiking up the prices to frankly ridiculous levels.
Our comparison charts below are scanning for the cheapest PS4 prices around and we've picked out a small number of bundles that, while not offering the biggest of savings, aren't overcharging either. That being said, we're seeing way better offers in the UK, as the US, in particular, is suffering a real shortage of console stock on all three platforms. Can we just have the PS5 now please?
Why would you still want a PS4 now though? There's just so much to get out of one in terms of its bulging, peak-PS4 games library. So, be it as a good old fashioned single-player game machine - sporting behemoth's such as Death Stranding, God of War and Spider-Man, or a purely-online multiplayer game station for playing with your friends, or as a family-friendly couch multiplayer entertainment system, there's so much reason to explore jumping into all things PlayStation with a cheap PS4 deal.
On top of the games that are now ready for you to play, as a result of the time the PS4 has been out now (over six years), we are riding the crest of the wave in terms of the system itself: the console and its firmware and UI is super refined. For reference, prices of cheap PS4 bundle deals often hover around the console's $250/£250 price but usually with a game (or two) thrown in for free. We certainly wouldn't advise paying that much for the console on its own as a better offer surely won't be far away - we're here to help you out there though.
Lastly, and if you're worried about being overtaken and made obsolete with the next generation of console, we know that the PS4 is still going to be great post-PS5, with Sony itself saying that it'll be long supported and offer a great way into all things PlayStation. Don't forget to check out the latest PlayStation Plus deals too.
The best PS4 bundles - USA
PS4 Slim 1TB | 3 games | $398 at Walmart
Update: Woah, that's a shocking price rise on this bundle. Just a few months ago we'd regularly see this one going for around $250, $300 at most. As such we wouldn't advise paying this price at all. Hopefully more stock will arrive soon, meaning the price can go back to something not utterly ridiculous.

What about the PS4 Pro?
Sure, the PS4 Pro is an expensive console in its own right, so a PS4 Pro bundle might seem excessive, especially if you're just upgrading from your regular PlayStation console.
