PS5 deals are looking a little light right now, but while bundles have been swept off the shelves in the US there are still some savings up for grabs. The story's a little different in the UK, with a few package offers up for grabs.

Games on offer range from Final Fantasy all the way through to cheaper titles like Wreckfest. Of course, if you're more interested in straight discounts on the console itself it's well worth keeping a close eye on the retailers below - we're still seeing prices changing in the wake of this year's sale. 

We're searching the web for the highest value PS5 bundles and bringing you all our favorites right here. Whether you're after discounts on games or you want to pick up some of the best PS5 accessories with your new console, you're in the right place. It's also worth noting that Prime Day PS5 deals could well offer up plenty of discounts as well. 

What is the PS5 price?

The PS5 price is $499.99 in the US and £479.99 in the UK, with bundles ranging from $479.99 - $559.99 and £479.99 - £539.99. The PS5 Digital Edition is priced at $399.99 / £389.99. 

The best PS5 deals available now

If you don't have a specific game in mind for your first purchase, it's worth taking a look at the latest PS5 deals on standalone consoles. These are rare, but we have seen the standard edition taking a few price dips here and there - especially in the UK. The Digital Edition is a little slower to catch up, though. You'll find all the web's latest PS5 deals just below, with our price crawling software surfacing all your favorite retailer's biggest offers every half hour.

PS5 Slim | TopSpin 2K25 | £474.95 at The Game Collection
This is the only PS5 bundle with a material saving on the full price of the console itself this week. You'll find the PS5 Slim packaged up with a free copy of TopSpin 2K25 for £474.95 at The Game Collection right now, a fiver off the £479.99 RRP.

PS5 Slim | Wreckfest | £508.99 £479 at Currys

PS5 Slim | Wreckfest | £508.99 £479 at Currys
Currys has a PS5 Slim and Wreckfest available for just £479 right now, throwing the game in for free with the standard RRP of the console.

PS5 Slim | GTA V | £489 at Very

PS5 Slim | GTA V | £489 at Very
You're paying just £10 more than the £479.99 RRP of the PS5 Slim here, but grabbing a copy of GTA V for your trouble. This is a cheaper game these days, but it still holds a £20 price tag day to day so you're still making a saving.

PS5 Slim | DualSense controller | £499.99 at EE

PS5 Slim | DualSense controller | £499.99 at EE
We have previously seen this bundle at £439 during major PS5 deals earlier in the year. Still, you're getting an extra controller for just £20 on top of the £479.99 price of the console - impressive considering that's a £60 accessory.

PS5 Slim | Final Fantasy VII Rebirth | Helldivers 2 | £529.99 at EE

PS5 Slim | Final Fantasy VII Rebirth | Helldivers 2 | £529.99 at EE
This is a more expensive PS5 bundle, but you're getting plenty of value in that copy of Final Fantasy VII. This is still a £60 game, so scoring it with a copy of Helldivers 2 in tow for just £50 more than the price of the console by itself is a win.

Should you buy the PS5 Digital Edition?

Simply put, the PS5 Digital Edition lacks a disc drive and is cheaper than the regular full-fat version. In fact, it's $100 / £90 less expensive. While this isn't an earth-shattering discount, that's because it's otherwise identical.

Unlike the Xbox Series X and the entry-level Series S, the PS5 Digital Edition is every bit as powerful as the standard PlayStation 5 console; so far as we can tell, there haven't been any cutbacks in terms of raw specs. That means it can handle every next-gen game in 4K with all the associated benefits. Basically, you're getting the same console without the ability to play physical discs.

However, much like with the Xbox One S All-Digital from the current generation, we can't see this digital alternative being a decent choice. PSN games in most territories cost significantly more than their physical counterparts (obscenely so in the UK), and prices take much longer to drop. Not to mention the fact that you shut yourself out from playing pre-owned games, your old DVDs, and 4K Blu-rays. 

However, even though the all-new, revamped PS Plus service and tiers are approaching something of a proper rival to Xbox Game Pass, we'd still recommend sticking with the standard PS5 if at all possible. It leaves you with more flexibility.

Is the PS5 price worth it?

Hoping for a slightly lower PS5 price? We (and our bank balances) hear you. However, it's actually fair value when you break everything down. If we were to build the PS5 from components that are on the market right now, it'd be much, much more expensive.

Let's look at the GPU first. Right now, you'd be staring down the barrel of an RTX 2080 equivalent graphics card (e.g., the best graphics cards) to handle ray tracing at any kind of decent frame rate or resolution. To produce ray tracing at 4K - before we even get to the 8K Sony has promised - you'd need a powerful chip like a Radeon VII, or whatever the Navi equivalent will be inside the PS5. Want it to hit 30 frames per-second and medium-high settings? You'd be looking at $800 / £600+ at a minimum.

Now, onto that SSD. If you go bargain hunting right this second, you'll pay $350 / £300-ish for a 1TB NVMe SSD from the likes of Samsung. Yes, you can go cheaper, but Sony is claiming that the PS5's SSD will outperform all current PC SSDs. As such, $350 / £300 or more is about right.

With that in mind, we're already looking at $1,000 / £1,000+ build. And that's before you take other parts into account. We assume 32GB of RAM at a minimum, a Ryzen 7 equivalent CPU with 8 cores (which we know about), and all the cooling, power, wireless tech, and casing required to keep everything together. That's another $500 - $800 / £400 - £700 at least.

Then there's the DualSense controller. It contains haptic feedback that's going to replace the traditional vibrations we've had for a long time, increasing immersion in games literally through touch and feel. The adaptive triggers will also seek to offer differing resistance depending on what you're doing in-game, like drawing a bow or driving over gravel. That's bound to increase the PS5 price.

This doesn't mean the PS5 should cost over $1,000 / £1,000 though. Given the strides in GPU development and the inevitable cost-cutting Sony has arranged, the PS5 is a fair bit cheaper than that. Plus, the cost for future models will keep going down as the company figures out manufacturing tricks to lower the price of production.
