The latest cheap PS4 deals - Razer Kraken Pro V2 headset for $54.99, Black Ops 4 for £27.99

Cheap PS4 deals 2018

If you’re looking to live up you January by grabbing a cheap PS4 deal, then you’re in good company right here. We’re always on the lookout for deals and discounted prices and whenever they pop up, this is the page to find them. The new year’s first month is always in need of some excitement being injected into it so nabbing that little extra for your setup or treating yourself to a discounted game is always welcome - and increasingly doable with the deals available.

The standout best cheap PS4 deal right now remains the PlayStation Classic retro console: it's $54.99 at Walmart, and over at Amazon UK its £49.99 (a saving of 45%). It seems that this is fast becoming its ’normal’ price point but this could still change at any point, so capitalise while you still can. It’s a great price on the PS Classic, very much bringing it into the realms of impulse purchasing for a bit of nostalgia.

Elsewhere, Currys in the UK are offering a decent saving on two of last year’s big hitters, selling Red Dead Redemption 2 and Shadow of the Tomb Raider for £74.99 - bagging you a saving of a good few quid. There also remains a healthy discount on Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 at Amazon UK with it down to £27.99. Check out the rest of the cheap PS4 deals below, and for other buying advice on some prominent extras for your PlayStation 4, then check the best PS4 headsets, and the best PS4 external hard drives

Consoles

The PlayStation 4 Pro is the beefed up, premium and 4k gaming console from Sony. It'll make landscapes lusher, creatures more colourful, and details, well, more detailed. It is the premium PlayStation experience and the best way to experience exclusives such as Horizon: Zero Dawn and God of War on Sony's consoles.

PS4 Slim consoles are still flying off the shelves and for those yet to make the jump to 4k provide a fantastic point to enter the gaming world. They still provide one of the only ways to experience exclusive PlayStation games such as Spider-Man PS4 and Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

Headsets

Best PS4 Headset

Razer Kraken Pro V2

Fantastic sound for a great price

Acoustic design: Closed Back | Cable length: 1.3m | Drivers: 50mm | Weight: 322g | Compatibility: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Mac, mobile

Really, really, rich bass
Brilliant and clear output
Solid and comfy design
Large size requires some getting used to
Mid-range audio is less good

This beast of a headset is one of our favourite PS4 accessories and offers some of the best sound going for a companion headset for your Sony console. The beefy system within is housed in the Kraken Pro V2's bold, striking design, but it is one that is still lightweight enough to not impose upon your comfort even in those longer play sessions. The size of the cans is probably a little on the large size but for good reason: the increased in housing size allows for the speakers to deliver a brilliantly boomy bass and bottom end which sounds fantastic in those AAA cinematic games but also when streaming music through your console.

You'll have no problem listening to your teammates over game noise and sound effects and the extendable microphone does a great job of enabling your voice to cut through the maelstrom and be safely delivered to your friends. There are no extra or hidden settings or fancy doo-hickeys on this headset, but its greatness comes from that: keeping it simple works and it does everything it needs to do very well.

At a very competitive price, the Kraken Pro V2 bats well above its average, particular when compared to those that would drain your wallet. This is another reason why it remains our top pick among our favourites: when quality and value are combined in this way, it's easily the best headset to recommend.

SteelSeries Arctis Pro

A larger price tag, but one of the best headsets going

Acoustic design: Closed Back | Cable length: 1.5m | Drivers: 50mm | Weight: 312g | Compatibility: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Mac, mobile

Chic, attractive and sturdy design
Great, high performance sound
Lots of exciting features and settings
Hits the wallet

It's got a noticeable price tag, let's say, but the SteelSeries Arctis Pro headset certainly delivers on the money you'll spend. The USP of this industry-leading headset is the own-brand GameDAC peripheral that comes bundled in. It can bypass the PS4's own DAC and also enable the Arctis Pro to become wireless without compromising sound quality. In fact the DAC increases and augments the high-resolution sound to standout levels and is ridiculously good in its clarity and range. However, you'll need to know what you're doing and what a DAC is to make the Arctis Pro reach its full potential.

The peripheral has its own OLED menu in which its features can be accessed and customised, all while giving a premium feel and finish to the headset. This is further accentuated by the build quality and the materials used to craft - and it feels crafted - the headset. Such is the aesthetic quality of the headset, you'd have no shame in using it out of the home and for general leisure or entertainment. But, working with the PS4 is certainly where its main strengths are. We think this is one of the best headsets around for your PS4 and will give you flexibility and freedom to create bespoke high-quality sounds for your gaming set up.

Hard Drives

WD My Passport 4TB Portable Hard Drive

The best for storage and reliability at a reasonable price

Capacity: 4TB | Storage Type: HDD

Quick speed for transferring files
Loads of storage space
Really competitive price
Not quite SSD-fast

This is a whopper at first glance, but also so much more than that. It's got super transfer speeds, so is perfect for moving your save files, screenshot library and games from and to your PS4 and the enormous 4TB of storage you get means you'll easily be able to store all of the best PS4 games on there. It's often treated kindly by retailers, too, so it's a wealth of space for not an insanely wallet-sapping amount of cash, and there's even white and black versions for you to choose something that complements your console. One of the best available going in terms of value meeting capacity.

Samsung SSD T5 500GB

A premium product, but for a premium price

Capacity: 500GB | Storage Type: SSD

Very fast loading speeds
Adds 500GB
Hits the wallet harder than HDDs

A true trade-off in external storage form if ever there was one. This is indeed at the premium end of the best PS4 hard drives available right now but this is still technically the best we've tested. 

This is actually an SSD (solid state drive) which means that everything moves faster - about 3 to 4 times faster than HDDs, generally speaking - allowing for blistering transfer speeds between your PS4 and the hard drive. There are no moving or whirring parts in an SSD too so it'll be a silent carrier of your files, while it will also be ever so slightly more reliable than an HDD. You could look to get larger versions but the prices will quickly become a bit crippling. You'll still get a fair few games on the 500GB version and you'll pay for the increase in speed and efficiency.
