When a great deal drops for one of the best current gaming consoles, that’s when holdouts jump in, and the most avid fans invest in a second or third machine.  If you fit one of those profiles, get ready to jump, because Walmart slashed the price of the Sony down to just $300 — a savings of $100 from the usual $400.

We named the Sony PS4 Pro the best gaming console of 2019 just two months ago. Its leadership position remains intact. You can count on Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo launching new gaming platforms in the future. However, if you’re shopping for the gaming console with the best games and the hardware to make them look stunning, the Sony PlayStation 4 Pro is your best choice today.

The PS4 Pro 1 TB’s 4K gaming system with HDR support creates awesome visuals with 4K TVs. Our reviewer also found that the PlayStation 4 Pro makes games look great even on 1080p TVs. You won’t have to buy all new titles either, because the Pro model supports all PS4 games.

The Sony PlayStation 4 Pro 1TB has more ports than earlier models. You’ll find three USB 3.1 port in all (two on front and one of the back). The Pro has an HDMI 2.0 port and an optical video port. The original PS4 had an optical port, but it was dropped for the PS4 Slim to save space. The full port selection ensures your ability hook up to a greater variety of display devices, which always comes in handy. The 1TB hard drive is a good start, but the PS4 Pro’s ability to swap the stock drive out for any 2.5-inch SATA hard drive is another nod to avid players.

As wonderfully engaging and powerful as the PS4 Pro is, there are ways you can tweak it for even more performance with some games. Be sure to check out our coverage of the performance tips and tricks for the PlayStation 4 Pro to get the most possible from the console.

If you want a great deal on the best gaming platform with best selection of games, take advantage of this awesome sale or the one that comes for Black Friday.

After a week or so of rumors and leaks, Sony has finally announced July's PlayStation Plus lineup, and it includes high-profile titles Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time and The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan alongside a brand new cooperative shooter called Arcadeggedon.

Crash Bandicoot 4 is no doubt the month's biggest and most recognizable game, bringing challenging platforming to subscribers who haven't had a chance to dive into the 2020 revival of the beloved franchise. Despite retaining the series' trademark difficulty and precision requirements, this newest release comes packed with plenty of improvements to the established formula and a handful of appreciated options that allow players to reduce the punishment for failure.

PS Plus Extra finally gives me a reason to keep my PS5 powered on
A PS5 standing on a table, with purple lights around it.

Due to the nature of my job, I own every modern video game console. I have a PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, PC, and even a Steam Deck. Would you believe me if I told you that out of all of those, the PS5 is the one I use the least?

It’s not that I never use it. Sony still offers the best console exclusives around, with top-notch titles like Horizon Forbidden West and Returnal. For that reason, my PS5 is a sturdy pillar in my gaming rotation that’ll never just sit collecting dust. That said, I rarely boot it up for any reason other than to play those handful of releases. Meanwhile, each of my other gaming devices have some incentive that has me returning to them even when there’s not a tentpole AAA game to dig into.

The PlayStation 5 has been out for over a year now, but despite its positive reception, consumers have had a difficult time getting their hands on one. Sony has stated that the PS5 was its biggest console launch ever, indicating that the demand for it is unprecedented. Even video game industry professionals had difficulties acquiring one, leading to frustrations across the board. This isn't exactly out of the ordinary with the launch of a highly anticipated console, but now that it's been out for a while, it's easy to see why consumers would have expected a PS5 to be easier to find.

All of that said, there are retailers you can check and things you can do to improve your odds of finding a PS5 right now.

However, Sony is expecting chip shortages to be alleviated by 2023, hopefully leading to more PS5 stock at retailers worldwide.
