For my money, PS Plus is one of the best deals in all of gaming. Not only does it let you play your games online and store your saves in the cloud, but it also gets you free two PS4 games each month. You can keep and play them for as long as you're a PlayStation Plus member. And, PS Plus members get extra discounts during many sales on the PlayStation Store. Finally, once the PS5 comes out, members will also get access to the PlayStation Plus Collection, a treasure trove of games that includes of some of the best games of the PS4 generation. If you play PlayStation regularly, a PS Plus membership pays for itself in basically no time.

If you own a handful of games, it's no secret that the PS4's onboard storage can run out fast. That's especially true with massive space hogging titles like Red Dead Redemption 2 and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare taking up absurdly large chunks of hard drive space. And if you're a PS Plus member who regularly downloads the monthly free games, you'll be out of space before you know it. And no one likes juggling games on their hard drive, especially considering how slow the PSN can be.

Thankfully, it's incredibly easy to expand the onboard storage. Just plug in one of the discounted external hard drives above, format it in the settings menu, and you'll be able to keep more games at the ready.

For several years there, PS4 console deals were relatively easy to come by. Not so in 2020, thanks to both the pandemic and the impending release of PS5. While you may be able to find a new PS4 Slim or PS4 Pro at MSRP, we're not seeing many actual discounts at the moment. If that changes in the future, we'll drop them here.

And in fact, you'll often see (possibly shady) third-party retailers selling the consoles for above the suggested retail prices on sites like Amazon, Walmart, and eBay. So unless you really need a PS4, try to get them at MSRP or below. For reference, here are the standard retail prices for PS4 models sold without pack-in games.
  • PS4 Slim - $299.99
  • PS4 Pro - $399.99
Those are all the best PlayStation deals. Be sure also to check out our Best Xbox Deals and Best Nintendo Deals if you're a multi-console owner (or looking to become one).
