Whether you are looking for an upgrade this Summer to treat yourself, asking for a birthday, or back to school gift, this is what you need to know.
Yes, there is a PS5 release date on the calendar for holidays 2020, but that’s still a long time away and there are a lot of games to play during the rest of the year. If you don’t already have a current-generation console, it’s a long time to wait.

This is especially a problem on Amazon where the console is out of stock from Amazon, but a third party seller is listing it for sale. It’s routine to see a price that is $60 higher than what you should be paying for the PS4 and close o $70 higher than a good price for the PS4 Pro.
GameStop offers a number of PS4 options and Best Buy has options at the normal prices. The PS4 Pro adds in 4K gaming and better graphics.=, for about a $100 premium over the PS4. You can also find a PS4 Pro deal on eBay with PlayStation Plus and The Last of Us Part II, brand new with a full warranty.
