Here are the best PlayStation 4 deals and bundles for October 2018

Right now is a great time to be a PlayStation 4 owner. More than 80 million consoles have been sold to date, and the 2016 release of the 4K-capable PlayStation 4 Pro and a long list of high-profile games (Persona 5, Call of Duty WWII, and many more) are only bolstering excitement for Sony’s future. The PS4 also has some great exclusives, like The Last Guardian and Bloodborne, that you can’t find on any other system. Best of all, the current hardware is more affordable than ever.

Below are our favorite PlayStation 4 deals available right now that can save you some cash and score you some free games, as well as some stand-alone console offers. If you’re in the market for a new PS4, check these out.

Best PlayStation 4 Deals

These aren’t bundles, but we would be remiss if we didn’t include the best deals on PlayStation 4 consoles. If you don’t want or need an extra game, but have been waiting for a deal on a PS4 Slim, then now’s your chance. The PlayStation 4 Pro is also worth mentioning due to the console’s increased horsepower, 4K support, and large 1TB hard drive. Gamers can enjoy enhanced graphics with recent releases such as Dishonored 2 and Watch Dogs 2, as well as a number of older games through ongoing software updates. Your copy of Call of Duty: Black Ops III will look better than ever on the PlayStation 4 Pro, especially if you invest in a 4K television with high-dynamic range (HDR). If you have a 4K TV or plan to upgrade to one in the future, then the beefy PlayStation 4 Pro delivers the best performance and will future-proof your setup.

Best PlayStation 4 Bundles

Considering the PS4’s well-deserved popularity, it’s no surprise that a number of high-value bundles and special-edition consoles have hit the web. Pickings are getting a bit slim right now, and we may have to wait for this year’s Black Friday and holiday sales see some new ones hit the shelves, but there are still gems to be found. To help you find which one is right for you and your gaming habits, we’ve sifted through a few bundle deals to help make your decision that much easier.

PlayStation 4 Pro ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ bundle pre-order — $400

playstation 4 deals

Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming in October, and it’s easily one of the most highly anticipated game releases in years. A prequel to Rockstar’s open-world gun-slinging western, Red Dead Redemption 2 tells the tale of the Van der Linde gang (to which we were introduced in the first game, playing as former member John Marston) as they loot, fight, and kill their way across the late 19th century American West in flight from the law.

This $400 bundle, consisting of a 1TB PS4 Pro and a Blu-Ray disc copy of Red Dead Redemption 2, is a great value if you’ve been thinking about picking up Sony’s 4K-capable console, since you’re effectively getting Rockstar’s highly anticipated new game for free. This bundle will be released alongside the game on October 26.

PlayStation 4 Slim PS4 Hits bundle – $394

playstation 4 deals

If you’re just getting into PS4 and want to experience some of the greatest games right off the bat, then this bundle might be for you. Along with a 1TB PlayStation 4 Slim console and 3-month PS Plus subscription, this package contains Blu-Ray disc copies of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, Gran Turismo Sport, and the new (and incredible) God of War.

This three-game PS4 bundle rings in at $394 on Amazon and offers a lot of value. It’s not quite as good of a deal as the Red Dead Redemption 2 pre-order bundle, but if you don’t care about the 4K-capable PS4 Pro, then this package still delivers more than enough content right out of the box to keep you busy for awhile.

Amazon

PlayStation 4 ‘Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End’ limited-edition bundle — $385

PlayStation 4 Bundle - Uncharted 4 Limited Edition

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End caps off an award-winning series that features some of the best set pieces and story elements of any game in existence (sorry, Mass Effect fans). Along with a copy of Uncharted 4, there’s a limited-edition console that features silk-screened artwork from the landmark title and a matching DualShock 4 controller.

Not only does this bundle offer unique features for one of the most compelling games of the current console generation, but it’s also a great choice if you played — and loved — the previous Uncharted games but just haven’t gotten around to picking up a PS4. This package is the perfect gift for die-hard Nathan Drake fans and can now be yours for $385 from Walmart.

Best PlayStation VR bundles

Although these aren’t console bundles, the PlayStation VR is so good that we had to include it. Aside from being a great virtual reality device, the PSVR is also one of the most affordable name-brand headsets on the market, coming in at roughly half the price of the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. These bundle deals sweeten the deal even more by throwing in some free games for you to jump into right out of the box:

PlayStation VR ‘Gran Turismo Sport’ bundle — $249

PlayStation 4 bundle deals

If you’ve had enough of dragons and a realistic racing sim is more your speed, then Gran Turismo Sport has it in spades, and this bundle is one of the cheapest ways to score a PSVR. The package includes the VR edition of Gran Turismo Sport along with a PlayStation VR headset and PlayStation Camera. At $249 from Walmart, it’s a solid value — the PSVR headset alone (even without the necessary camera) is going for around $220 right now.

Walmart

PlayStation VR ‘Doom VFR’ bundle — $250

PlayStation 4 VR bundle

Virtual reality games have, admittedly, been hit or miss, but Doom VFR is a clear winner, bringing the intense rip-and-tear action of Doom to another level by letting you experience all of its blood-soaked insanity in true first-person glory. Along with the game, this bundle includes a PlayStation VR headset and PlayStation Camera, and can be yours for $250 from B&H, making it one of the best PSVR deals going right now.
