    All the best deals in the UK and US, both for standalone consoles and software bundles.


    You can’t suffer the itching any more. You need to buy a PS4. Where’s cheapest? In the UK it’s Gamestop, seemingly, and in the US there’s no discernible difference between any of the major retailers. Sucks to be American. Apart from the fact that the $399 Americans pay for the console (pre-tax) is £237. Sucks to be British.

    We’ve only included consoles under £400. Gamestop appears to be the cheapest place in the UK to buy a new PlayStation 4 at the moment.

    Not much point having a PS4 if you don’t have anything to play on it. Yes, there’s all that lovely PSN stuff, but you want a goddamn disc to spin in your purdy new Blu-ray drive. Here’s how to get a game cheapest.
    Hello America! What with being American and all, you probably don’t want to buy from European retailers.

    We’ve got good and bad news for you. The good: PS4 costs less in the US (before tax) than in Europe. The bad: the price parity for PS4 consoles among US retailers is so exact you could use it as an atomic clock. Yes, you have choice. But not in price.

    We’ve saved you a giant $0.99 by shopping around. You can thank us later. Also, your bundling options suck. Sorry about that.
