Finding the best PS5 prices in the USA is a little tricky at the moment, as the PS5 restock saga continues. Although getting hold of the console is a lot easier than it ever has been, you'll probably have to either pay above the odds for the console itself, or spend a little more to get it in a PS5 bundle. So what is the best PS5 price in the USA (and the rest of the world)?
Well at the time of writing, the best PS5 price in the USA would have to go to the current God of War Ragnarok bundle deal (opens in new tab) that you can get directly from the Sony store. That will set you back $559.99 for the disc console, or $459.99 for the digital console. But is this a good USA PS5 price? For context, Sony is currently out of stock of just he consoles, but is advertising them as $499.99 for the disc and $399.99 for the digital console. Now, that's the same as the original retail price two years ago for the USA, but for pretty much all other countries the retail price has been hiked up a bit.
In the UK, there's been some recent PS5 restocks from Game, Currys and Very, but they don't last long. Unfortunately, distribution issues, bots and the global chip shortage continue to hold up production of Sony's in-demand console. Add to that the original retail price went up by about £30 for both consoles, and getting the next gen console is proving pricey.

PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition?
It's been more than seven years since the last PlayStation console, the PS4, and the world has been eagerly awaiting a more advanced model. And that's exactly what Sony has delivered. The PS5 offers a huge leap in gaming, and there are a lot of amazing games for the platform.
But should you buy the standard or digital edition? There are pros and cons for the latter. On the plus side, you save a cool $100/£100 and you don't need to get the physical games (instead you download them digitally). On the other hand, some people love the physical games, and they do retain a certain value, meaning you can sell them on later. At the end of the day, it's a matter of personal preference. In all other respects, you're getting the same amazing console with both editions.
