The PS5 has spent the last three years being one of the most popular tech items you can buy, and for its first two years on the market just finding PS5 restock was a nearly impossible task. Fortunately, stock levels have stabilized and we’ve now reached the point where Sony is willing to slice money off the machine in order to entice newcomers into the PlayStation ecosystem. 

We usually see PS5 bundles on sale, but this is the biggest sale we've seen on the standalone consoles. If you want to know more about the console before purchasing, be sure to check out our full PS5 review where we called it a "true generational leap" and praised it for "offering incredibly fast load times and an innovative new controller that can change the way games feel." 

While the PS5 vs Xbox Series X debate rages on, and there's really not a definitive answer, we can comfortably say that the PS5 is an excellent gaming device that has now built up a deep library of must-play titles. Check out our best PS5 games ranking to find out what you should play first.
