PS5 consoles have seen a first-time discount, dropping to at least $449.99 in the US, £399.99 in the UK, and €459.99 in Germany. This new sale even offers a standalone discount, unlike the bundle deals we’ve seen before, making it an even more appealing opportunity for any gamers looking to pick up the console before Spider-Man 2 comes out. Plus, if you’re interested, Dell also has the Xbox Series X down to $449.99 right now as well.

While the PS5 deal for the US is currently only available at Monoprice, there is a chance other retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, or Walmart could follow up with their own deals, just like we’ve seen in other regions this past week. Moreover, we also saw discounts on PS5 games, DualSense controllers, and more over the UK, so it might not be too long until we’re treated to further PlayStation discounts in the US soon as well.

PlayStation 5

This discount also comes off the back of some heavy rumors that Sony is planning to release a ‘slim’ version of the PS5 soon. Microsoft also referenced the rumors in the recent FTC v. Microsoft hearing, predicting that the slim console could be priced somewhere around $399.99.

This also comes just as Sony announced that the PlayStation 5 has, unsurprisingly, been a massive success for them. It’s sold over 40 million units as of July 16, 2023, putting it only slightly behind the sales pace of PS4 (likely due to the previous semiconductor shortage).

Spider-Man 2 PS5 bundle and its accessory preorders are also now available to preorder, with stock for the PS5 bundle and DualSense controller still holding out, while the Spidey 2 console covers have unfortunately sold out already. We’ve already got a handy PlayStation deals roundup to explore, but as we’re nice we’ll also add a few of the new deals if they go live as well.
