Christmas alert: Get the PlayStation 5 on Amazon for $649.95
Act fast to secure the PlayStation 5 at Amazon for $649.95. You can also score God Of War bundles for a saving of $20.
If someone in your life has been after the PlayStation 5 for the last 2 years, seize the opportunity to make Christmas 2022 the one they'll never forget. That's right guys, the PlayStation 5 is back in stock at Amazon.
The ever-elusive PlayStation 5 has been high in demand and low in availability since its release in November 2020.
Well, Santa must have been listening, because you can currently buy not 1, but 2 versions of the console at normal, non-inflated prices.
PlayStation 5 Digital Editions for $649.95
If you're keen to save a few bucks, Amazon is selling the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition Console for $649.95. This is the first time we've seen the console selling for its recommended retail price in a very long while.
The Digital Edition is identical to the standard PlayStation 5 with one difference – it does not come with a Blu-ray drive. This means you need to download games and stream your movies and TV shows rather than using discs. If you rarely use physical media this is arguably the model you should get. In terms of specifications, it is just as powerful as the disc version.
Just be mindful that new, full-price games rarely receive a discount on the PlayStation Store, whereas it's usually possible to save a few bucks on physical, non-digital versions. Here's the link to buy:
God of War Ragnarök Bundles
There's also the PlayStation 5 God of War Ragnarök Bundle – pre-packaged with this season's hottest game for $904. That works out to $20 off the RRP compared to buying both products separately.
What's included in the deal?
Included in the bundle is that hard-to-find PlayStation 5 console, a DualSense Wireless Controller and a God of War Ragnarök full game voucher that will enable you to download and play as you please as soon as you've set up the PS5.
Just some of the features boasted by the PlayStation 5 include near-instant load times for installed PS5 games, new levels of realism with individual simulation of rays of light resulting in true-to-life shadows and reflections and 8K output compatibility.
God of War Ragnarök was originally released on 11 November this year. This action-adventure game promises to showcase all of those PS5 perks we were discussing earlier too. With its combo-based combat fused with elements of puzzle and roleplaying, you can expect an immersive in-game experience in this single-player epic saga.
Given the popularity of both the console and the game, if you've got your eye on this bundle, we'd definitely recommend seizing the day. Make someone's Christmas extra special or why not treat yourself? The last 2–3 years have been tough on us all. Do you really need a better excuse than that?
