Considering the fact that Sony just increased the price of the PS5 in some countries, you can expect it to be quite a while before we see any deals on this next-gen console. But for PS4 users hoping to add some new gear and accessories to their setup, there are tons of bargains out there. You can save big on headsets, storage drives and even some refurbished consoles in case you’re looking to make the switch from Xbox. We’ve rounded up some of the best bargains you can shop right now below, and we’ll continue to up date this page as offers come and go. Check back often to make sure you’re getting the best prices available.
Plenty of recent next-gen games are still available for the PlayStation 4, and if you’re looking for a good price on a console, your best bet is to shop refurbished. GameStop currently has a selection of used 1TB slim models available for just under $300, which is about $200 less than the limited quantity of new consoles that are still floating around out there. This refurb model also includes a DualShock Wireless controller.
Turtle Beach is one of the top brands out there when it comes to gaming headsets, and the second-gen Stealth 600 is one of our favorite PlayStation headsets on the market. These headphones are compatible with both PS4 and PS5 and are equipped with 50mm speakers for clear, immersive sound so you can hear every step and shot. They’re totally wireless thanks to the use of a Mini-USB transmitter, and the mic arm folds up into the headset so it’s out of your way when you’re not using it for voice chats. The step-up Stealth 700 is also on sale right now for $115, $35 off the usual price.
Another one of our top PlayStation headsets for 2022, the HyperX Cloud Alpha was named our favorite wired option out there at the moment. It’s compatible with both the PS4 and PS5 (and Xbox and PC if you’re looking for a pair that can do it all), and connects using a detachable 3.5mm aux cable. It features dual-chamber drivers for smooth in-game audio, and the aluminum frame and memory foam ear pads make them feel both sturdy and comfortable to wear for long periods.
When it comes to game consoles, 500GB or even a full 1TB of storage can fill up pretty quickly. While you can certainly delete games and download them again later, an external storage drive is a much more efficient solution. This 2TB WD drive is compatible with the PS4 and PS5, but it can only store PS4 games. And with optimized speeds of up to 900Mbps, you can skip those loading screens and get right to the action.
If you’ve got aspirations of being a big-time game streamer, you’ll need a proper camera. This Sony streaming cam was designed specifically for the PlayStation 4, though it can be used with the PlayStation 5 with a camera adapter. It allows you to broadcast yourself in play, as well as add a picture-in-picture video of yourself while livestreaming. It also pairs with the DualShock 4 wireless controller to help keep you centered during your stream.
If you have managed to score yourself a PlayStation 5, you may be looking to beef up the storage a bit to get the most out of your next-gen console. Fortunately, the PS5 has an extra internal storage drive slot, so you can easily expand it with an M.2 SSD. The Samsung 980 Pro is our overall favorite model on the market, and right now you can even pick it up on sale — impressive, considering that it is sometimes difficult to even find in stock. This model also features a built-in heatsink, which was missing on previous generations. The 1TB drive is also on sale for $140, $40 off the usual price.
