For nearly a year now, it has been difficult to find any PS4 deals as new stock of Sony's last-generation console has completed dried up. If you aren't looking for where to buy the PS5, then your only option is to pick up a second-hand or refurbished PS4. And, unfortunately, there aren't many deals or bundles with these consoles.

But there's some good news. Sony has announced that it will continue to manufacture the PS4 throughout 2022 with the aim to get around 1 million consoles on shelves this year. It says this is in response to the incredible demand for the PS5, which many are still struggling to buy over a year after launch.

Now, it may sound counterintuitive to ramp up production of a completely different console in order to meet the demand for the PS5, but because the PS4 uses older hardware it's easier (and cheaper) for Sony to manufacture. The aim is to have a console available for those who want to play some of the biggest PlayStation exclusives releasing this year such as Horizon: Forbidden West, Gran Turismo 7 and God of War: Ragnarok. All of these will simultaneously launch on PS4 and PS5.

It will be some time before these new consoles make their way to stores, but we're getting this page ready for the influx of PS4 deals that should appear over the coming months. Do check back in regularly for all the latest updates or keep an eye on our PS5 restock live blog for more news.

PS4 consoles and bundle deals (US)

If you don't want to wait for the newly manufactured PS4s to arrive in stores, your only option today is to pick up a second-hand console. Prices have been inflated a little by most sellers so our advice would be to wait until the new consoles are made available to buy as you will likely pay less and come away with brand new hardware. Nevertheless, here's a look at what's available to buy today.

PS4 Slim (1TB) Refurbished: $289.99 at GameStop

PS4 Slim (1TB) Refurbished: $289.99 at GameStop
Given a brand new PS4 console used to sell for $299.99, this is a lot to pay for a second-hand one at GameStop. It just goes to show how prices have increased now that no new PS4 consoles are available to buy. This should change in the months ahead, though, so our suggestion is to wait and buy one of the new ones that are coming soon. 

PS4 consoles and bundle deals (UK)

The story is very similar in the UK, where no brand new PS4 console or bundle deals are available to buy. There are lots of second-hand consoles, though, so here are some of the cheapest prices we've spotted right now.

PS4 Slim (500GB) Pre-owned: £199.99 at Game

Game has a few second-hand PS4 consoles in stock right now. The condition is labelled as 'fair' which describes a fully functional console but one that has a few cosmetic imperfections such as scuffs and marks. It's not a bad price but, again, waiting for the new stock to arrive will almost certainly get you a better deal.

PlayStation Plus deals

If you're buying a PS4, you probably want to pick up a PlayStation Plus membership, too. PlayStation Plus (aka PS Plus or PS+) allows you to play PS4 games online, get access to the Instant Game Collection on PS5 and download a bunch of free games for PS4 each month. The default price for a year's subscription is $60/£50. These are the best prices today and you can always check out our PlayStation Plus deals hub for even more offers over shorter subscription times.
