 PS5 Christmas Deals and Launch OffersPin

PlayStation 5 starts at $399 for a 1TB version without an optical drive. It will cost an extra $100 for the optical drive version. No discounts have been announced on PS 5 yet but Sony is surely going to offer a heavy discount to combat Xbox’s competitive pricing. The PS4 Pro, on the other hand, is expected to have heavy discounts.

PS4 Pro Christmas Discounts

PS4 Pro Christmas DiscountsPin

There are two main reasons that lead us to believe the standard PS4 Pro console will be heavily discounted on Christmas:

  • Sony will be looking to maximize sales of old hardware.
  • Retailers will be looking to clear out old stock to make way for the new PS5 models, which are arriving shortly before Christmas.

We predict the standard PS4 Pro 1TB to be slashed from $499 to $249-$300 on Christmas, representing a 40%-50% discount. The PS4 Slim 1TB version, could fall as low as $199.

PS5 Christmas Discounts

PS5 Christmas DiscountsPin

The PS5 was released on November 12. It’s unlikely that the PS5 consoles will be heavily discounted during Christmas as they are so new to the market.

The main deals we expect to see on these mid-generation consoles are bundle deals. For the PS5 consoles themselves, we predict discounts in the range of 10 – 15%. A PS5 Slim console for $349 on Christmas is optimistic but not impossible.

Retailers will be looking to shift old consoles before offering big reductions on the newest Playstation consoles.

What did we base these prices on?

As well as the reasons outlined above, we analyzed: Christmas 2019 & 2018 PlayStation deals, trends in console prices over time and we also compared the launch price of the PS5 to previous consoles.
