Whether you're keeping it simple with Slim or going all out with Pro, these are the best PlayStation 4 deals this holiday season.
The PlayStation recently celebrated its 20th Anniversary and the arrival of Presto and Playstation F.C on the console (and Dreams, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End and PlayStation VR on the horizon), it's not showing any signs of slowing down.
Even though the PlayStation 4 has already gone through multiple price reductions to match the pricing of Microsoft's Xbox One, there's no better time of year to catch a better deal than the Summer holidays. Whether it's games, accessories or the console itself you're looking for, we've got you covered.

What's likely to be on special?
Considering the markup on PlayStation consoles is usually quite low in retail stores, stores like EB Games and JB HI-FI don't have a lot of wiggle room when it comes to discounting consoles. No, the real steals are on games and accessories. With that said, traditional storefronts are hell on during the holidays, so why not skip the rush and do your Boxing Day shopping from the comfort of your lounge.
Shopping tips: PlayStation 4
- Make sure you're purchasing for the right platform. When gifting games, many make the mistake of buying an Xbox One game for a PS4 owner or vice-versa. Make sure to double-check what console/s the recipient owns.
- Check if the game you're purchasing is online only. Many popular titles these days have multiplayer modes that require a steady broadband connection - some titles like Destiny and Star Wars Battlefront rely heavily on this. Make sure the recipient has a good Wi-Fi connection and plenty of data if you're planning on buying games like Evolve, Destiny and Star Wars: Battlefront.
- Check the rating before you buy! Just like movies and TV shows, games are rated by the Australian Classification Board, so you can know if the game you're purchasing is age appropriate.
