Best Cyber Week PlayStation deals

How to choose a PlayStation

The PlayStation 5  launched two models on November 12, namely the standard edition with an Ultra HD Blu-ray disc drive, and the Digital Edition that ditches the disc drive in exchange for a lower price. Aside from that, and the slight design change due to the missing disc drive, there’s no difference between the two PlayStation 5 versions.

If you are choosing between the disc drive-equipped standard PlayStation 5 or going disc-less with the Digital Edition, there are a few things to consider. First and foremost is the stability of your internet connection at home, as the Digital Edition will have a greater reliance on its online capabilities since you will be downloading your games. You also need to think about whether you want a physical CD collection, or if you’re fine with a digital catalog for your games.

If budget permits, you should go for the standard PlayStation 5, especially since it offers backward compatibility with most PlayStation 4 games, so you won’t miss out if you didn’t get the chance to play the console’s classics. However, that doesn’t mean that the PlayStation 4 is no longer a good buy. With its portfolio of exclusives that include The Last of Us Remastered, The Last of Us Part II, Spider-Man, God of War, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Horizon: Zero Dawn, and many more, you won’t be running out of games to play on the PlayStation 4 any time soon.

The PlayStation 4 is also available in two models, namely the PlayStation 4 Slim and the PlayStation 4 Pro. If you are set on buying a PlayStation 4, you should aim to buy the PlayStation 4 Pro, as it comes with a CPU and GPU boost. It also maximizes support for 4K gaming.

If you already own the PlayStation 4 and you’re not yet planning to upgrade to the PlayStation 5, there are still many ongoing Cyber Week deals to watch for. You can add to your library of games or buy accessories such as controllers to further expand your PlayStation 4 arsenal. You can also choose to subscribe to the PlayStation Plus membership to enable online multiplayer and gain access to tons of free games.

This PS5 bundle gets you a PlayStation Portal and it’s not sold out, yet

The PlayStation Portal is an excellent, albeit exclusive handheld gaming console that works with the PS5. In our Portal review, we made it clear that while it cuts a lot of corners, it is an excellent companion to Sony's titular current-gen console. But to make the most of it, you really do need a PS5, which means if you don't have one, there's no point in buying a Portal until you do. Well, we spotted an incredible bundle that includes the PlayStation 5 Slim, a PlayStation Portal, and Marvel's Spider-Man 2 all together, all for you, at one great price. For $750, normally $760, so saving you $10, it's all yours. But here's the thing, the PlayStation Portal has pretty much been sold out everywhere. This bundle gets your hands on it, plus everything else you need to play. It even includes Spider-Man, so you can web-sling as soon as you set it up. If you've been searching high and low for the Portal, don't sleep on this deal.

Why you should buy the PlayStation 5 with PlayStation Portal bundle
The PlayStation 5 is a fantastic gaming console, but the exclusive games available on the platform are second to none. God of War, Marvel's Spider-Man, Horizon Zero Dawn, Death Stranding, I could go on and on. But one of the better features of the PlayStation 5 is the option to remotely play your games on compatible devices, from your smartphone to a PS4 in another room, you can connect in, stream, and play, just like if you were sitting in front of your PS5. The PlayStation Portal takes that to a whole new level.
