One of the most exciting deals I've spotted so far in this year's State of Play sale has got to be this saving on the PS5 Slim. Although it's not quite as compelling as some of the excellent PS5 bundles we've seen during sales events in the past, it still sees the system return to its lowest-ever price and is therefore a great opportunity to pick up one of the best gaming consoles for less.

Cutting right to the chase, the PS5 Slim is on sale for just $449 (was $499.99) at Amazon. That's a tidy little $50.99 saving, leaving you with just enough to pick up a physical copy of one of the best PS5 games orone of the cheapest PlayStation Plus deals if you're so inclined. The PS5 Slim Digital Edition has also had its price slashed down to just $399 (was $449.99) at Amazon which is another $50.99 saving. These savings are also available at Walmart.

Although the PS5 Slim Digital Edition lacks a disc drive out of the box, you can pick one up separately down the line for around $79.99 if you'd prefer to play your games physically.
