It's now easier than ever to get your hands on a PlayStation 5 console, and if you've been patiently waiting, this is the best time ever to buy a PS5. It's been reduced to as low as £399 at Amazon UK, and just $449.99 at Monoprice in the US (this deal is currently out of stock so you'll need to join a waiting list).

I'll be honest, this deal is pretty annoying. I paid £479.99 for my PS5 in December 2022, and this new record-low price will save you £80 on the standard edition. That's a huge saving to put towards any games or accessories to complete your setup. We gave the PS5 console a 5-star review last year, so take a look if you need any further convincing of its glory. 

There are plenty of great deals to be had on PS5 accessories too, with the DualSense controller now £59.99 £39.99 on Amazon. See the best deals we've found below, plus essential PS5 accessories including the best PS5 controllers and the best PS5 games to get you started.

Review Consensus: Reminiscent of a sculpture, a literal work of art, we loved the design of the PS5. But that's not all. It has an exceptional UI and lightning-fast load times, with near-silent running. Don't just take our word for it, our sister sites linked below also gave the PS5 glowing reviews.
