Best PlayStation Deals: Save on Headsets, Refurb Consoles and More

The PlayStation 5 launched two years ago, but it’s still frustratingly tough to find one in stock. So it’ll be quite awhile before we start to see discounts of any kind on Sony’s ultra-popular console. 

But there are plenty of other deals and discounts on Sony gaming gear that you can take advantage of. Below, we’ve rounded up some of the best bargains out there on PlayStation headsets, storage drives and streaming cameras — as well as the best place to find a refurb PS4 console in stock in case you’re looking to make the switch from Xbox.

With the holiday shopping frenzy well underway, we’re sure to see more deals pop up in the next few weeks, so be sure to check back often for the best prices available. 

Sony

Plenty of recent next-gen games are still available for the PlayStation 4, and if you’re looking for a good price on a console, your best bet is to shop refurbished. GameStop currently has a selection of used 1TB slim models available for less than $250. That’s around $200 less than than the limited quantity of new consoles that are still floating around out there, and is $50 less than the usual refurb price. This refurb model also includes a DualShock Wireless controller.

Turtle Beach

Turtle Beach is one of the top brands out there when it comes to gaming headsets, and the second-gen Stealth 700 is one of our favorite PlayStation headsets on the market. These headphones are compatible with both PS4 and PS5 and are equipped with 50mm speakers for clear, immersive sound so you can hear every step and shot. They’re totally wireless thanks to the use of a Mini-USB transmitter, and the mic arm folds up into the headset so it’s out of your way when you’re not using it for voice chats. The more affordable Stealth 600 is also on sale right now for $80, $20 off the usual price.

When it comes to game consoles, 500GB or even a full 1TB of storage can fill up pretty quickly. While you can certainly delete games and download them again later, an external storage drive is a much more efficient solution. This 1TB WD drive is compatible with the PS4 and PS5, but it can only store PS4 games. And with optimized speeds of up to 900Mbps, you can skip those loading screens and get right to the action.

If you’ve got aspirations of being a big-time game streamer, you’ll need a proper camera. This Sony streaming cam was designed specifically for the PlayStation 4, though it can be used with the PlayStation 5 with a camera adapter. It allows you to broadcast yourself in play, as well as add a picture-in-picture video of yourself while livestreaming. It also pairs with the DualShock 4 wireless controller to help keep you centered during your stream.

Samsung

If you have managed to score yourself a PlayStation 5, you may be looking to beef up the storage a bit to get the most out of your next-gen console. Fortunately, the PS5 has an extra internal storage drive slot, so you can easily expand it with an M.2 SSD. The Samsung 980 Pro is our overall favorite model on the market, and right now you can even pick it up on sale — impressive, considering that it is sometimes difficult to even find in stock. This model also features a built-in heatsink, which was missing on previous generations.

Just note that it’s currently backordered, and won’t arrive until January, in case you were planning on having one under the tree this year.

While this isn’t a deal, it’s worth noting that the new DualSense Edge PS5 controller is now available for preorder. This customizable, high-performance controller allows you to fine-tune your playing style with mappable buttons and swappable stick caps. You can even create multiple control profiles so you can easily switch between different players or games. It’s priced at $200 and will launch on Jan. 26, 2023.
