PlayStation Back To School Sale - PS5 For $450, Exclusive Games For Cheap

The PS5 has received its first outright discount at major retailers.


PlayStation's Back to School sale is in full swing until August 19, and it includes some very notable discounts. Starting with the PS5 console itself, now's your chance to save $50 on your purchase. This is the first-ever official discount on the PlayStation 5, but it's far from the only stellar PlayStation deal you can grab at major retailers. We've rounded up the best PS5 deals in PlayStation's Back to School sale below.

In addition to getting the console at a nice discount, you can also save big on a bunch of the best PlayStation exclusives for PS5. Most of the games on sale match their lowest all-time prices. Plus, you can grab a second (or third or fourth) DualSense controller for $49, which matches the lowest price ever. Then you can round out your setup with Sony's Pulse 3D headset for $70 (down from $100).

As of now, the console is available at the $450 price at all of the big retailers, including Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart, GameStop, and Target.
