The PlayStation 5 is the most sought-after gaming console of 2023. But getting your hands on
one has been quite a tough process since its release in 2020. The demand has been so great, it’s been challenging to
snag a console at all, much less get a good deal. We’ve noticed that it’s recently become a bit easier to find a PS5 in
stock and shoppers can occasionally find discounted console bundles right now. If you’ve been trying to get your hands on
a PlayStation 5, keep reading to find out how to score the best deal.

The experts at CBS Essentials analyzed historical pricing data on the Playstation 5 using CamelCamelCamel to uncover
key data patterns and help you find the best time to buy. Find out how to get the best deal on this coveted gaming console.

Amazon Deal

The standard PS5 console typically doesn’t go on sale. However, Amazon is currently offering a deal on the PlayStation 5 God of War Ragnarok bundle. It’s currently going for $509, which is $50 off its list price. The bundle includes a PlayStation 5 console, a DualSense wireless controller, a base, an HDMI Cable, one AC power cord, a USB cable and a God of War Ragnarok full game voucher. This is the first price cut we’ve seen on the console but it does look like it may be permanent (or at least last for awhile). Now is a good time to buy if you want a PlayStation 5 (or if you’re looking to give one as a graduation gift or Father’s Day gift). Keep in mind, we do tend to see the best PS5 price cuts around the holiday season, so it’s possible that there may be better deals available towards the end of the year.
