Best PS4 deals in September 2021

Best PS4 deals

Finding good PS4 deals can be a challenge right now. The PS5 should have sent the console's price down to an all-time low, but instead it's become incredibly difficult to get a hold of PS4 deals. In addition, Sony's decision to slow down PS4 production isn't helping. 

That said, it's easy to find PS4 deals on games and accessories. We may not see as many discounts as we did before the PS5's arrival, but below you'll find the best ongoing deals. (Make sure to follow our PS5 restock tracker for inventory of the PS5).

The PS4 is the console every gamer needs to have. In our PS4 review, we note how it's the console to beat thanks to its catalog of excellent exclusives, tons of entertainment features, and VR support. And since it's the only gaming console with the latter, the PS4 has an edge over the Xbox One. 

Not sure which system to get? Check out PS4 vs. Xbox One: Which Console Is Right for You? And if you prefer to play with friends and family, you can also peruse our list of the best split screen PS4 games.

In terms of discounts, they're hard to find at the moment. That said the best PS4 deals tend to be on refurbished models. Sony has slowed down production of the PS4, so refurbs are your best bet.

Sony PlayStation 4 Pro

Sony's premium console

CPU: 2.3-GHz AMD Jaguar | RAM: 8GB | Hard Drive Size: 500GB,1TB | Hard Drive Speed: 5,400rpm | Hard Drive Type: SATA Hard Drive | Optical Drive: BD-ROM/DVD | Drive Speed: 8X | Graphics Card: : AMD Radeon Graphics | Wi-Fi: : 802.11b/g/n | Ports (excluding USB): Ethernet, HDMI, USB 3.0 | USB Ports: 2 | Dimensions: : 11.6 x 12.9 x 2.2-inches | Weight: 7.3 pounds

Supports 4K gaming and streaming
HDR compatible
Can't play UHD Blu-ray discs
A tad expensive

The Sony PS4 Pro raises the bar for gaming consoles by delivering 4K gaming with a gorgeous injection of color, thanks to HDR. Simply put, if you own a 4K TV, this is the console that you want sitting next to it. 

Last year, PS4 Pro bundles dropped as low as $279, and to date that's the lowest price we've seen for the console. Unfortunately a complete lack of supply means you're not likely to see that again anytime soon. Count yourself lucky if you can find one for the $399 MSRP, or wait and hope Sony has ships out more consoles in the coming months.
