The best PS4 Slim, PS4 Pro and cheap PlayStation 4 deals

Many of the Black Friday deals are still live! Check out our main Black Friday PS4 deal hub for the latest updates.

The best PS4 Black Friday deals

This time of year is usually the best time of year to get a super cheap PS4 deal. Retailers have started smashing down the price of PS4 bundles earlier than ever this year and it looks like the discounting is set to continue long past Black Friday.

On this page we're listing all of the best cheap PS4 deals in the UK (here's our US PS4 deals page) so that, once you've decided to buy one, you can find all of the cheapest PS4 prices. Below you'll find all of the absolute cheapest standalone PS4 deals from UK retailers, followed by our pick of what we think are the bundle deals that offer the absolute best value. 

The PS4 is currently available in a number of different SKUs. You can still get the original PS4 in 500GB and 1TB versions and you'll find prices for those just below.

Under that you'll see the best deals for the new PS4 Slim which has come in to replace the original model with a slimmer design. And at the bottom you'll see deals for the new PS4 Pro - the new fancy 4K model.

The best PS4 deals

The original PS4 with optical out audio options

These are the regular full-sized PS4 deals. Expect to see a few tasty bargains as retailers clear space for the newer models. Prices have been dropping over the Summer months anyways. If you're not bothered about 4K visuals and are yet to pick up a PS4, you could find a fantastically cheap deal here. As time goes by though, we're starting to see this model get phased out with better deals to be found on the PS4 Slim.

The best PS4 Slim deals:

The PS4 Slim is... slimmer, quieter and smaller

The new PS4 Slim launched in September for around £259 (500GB) or £310 (1TB). This new model will eventually replace the current PS4. The console itself is smaller, lighter and more power efficient and the 500GB model is priced at a similar level to the current 500GB PS4, so you're not paying extra for the refined tech. We'd seriously advise you scroll down to the bundles further down this page as many of them are cheaper than buying the console on its own!

ps4 pro deals

The best PS4 Pro deals:

The PS4 that offers 4K gaming and Netflix

Essentially, the PS4 Pro is a 4K upgrade of the current PS4, rather than a 'next-gen' console. The keywords to take in from the PS4 Pro are 4K and HDR. The new machine will allow game developers to include 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range options in their games, so expect the like of Uncharted 4, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Days Gone, Horizon: Zero Dawn and more to look even better on a HDR-enabled 4K TV. You'll also be able to stream 4K content from Netflix and Amazon. Want to get the right TV? Then check out our cheap 4K TV deals page.

Cheap PlayStation Plus deals

If you're buying a PS4, you'll probably need a cheap PlayStation Plus deal too. PlayStation Plus (aka PS Plus or PS+) allows you to play PS4 games online, along with access to the Instant Game Collection, a bunch of free games for PS4, PS3 and Vita each month. The default price for a year is £40, although it's going up in the US soon, so a UK price hike is expected. CD Keys is known for having some great PlayStation Plus deals, so we'd head there if you need a top up or want to stack some subs.
