      Hi all,

      I'm on the lookout for a PS4 Pro but noticed they seem to low / out of stock or the stores have limited packages available.

      Is there a new SKU coming out? Or maybe a price reduction?

      Thanks

      The PS5 could be due for release in December 2019 but I haven't read of any new versions or price reductions coming for the current Pro model.

      Looking to get a new PS4 to play some of the new games coming out and was wondering whether to pick up the Pro or find a cheaper Slim deal.

      The Pro is going to give you stunning HDR/4K visuals with a little more power over the standard PS4 giving you better draw distances etc.

      I highly reccomend the Pro.

      I’ve been thinking about getting a Pro too, but there just doesn’t seem to be any decent deals around at the moment.
      I’ve been checking here PS4 Deals & Bundles From £249 - Console Deals regularly, but it’s pretty much just the Fortnite pack available now, or wait until Spider-Man or FIFA come out.

      Maybe the £379 deals with GOW is decent as you could sell that on

      Look out for when eBay next have a promotion offer (there was a 15% off anything only last Friday)...that’s how I got my PS4 Pro earlier in the year.

      Do you know anyone that works at Argos? They've got a 15% staff discount coming up soon.

      It's their Bank Holiday promotion on the eBay home page.
      Only works for select retailers though

      I'm thinking the console being ltd edition may have a better sell on value than the standard one?

      That looks like a pretty reasonable deal, and my local store appears to have it in stock for me to collect today.

      That deal was a bust for me. The website told me everything was in stock and allowed me to reserve it, but when I got to the store the games weren’t available. The console itself was also an opened box. Not the end of the world, but I prefer new and sealed where possible. So I didn’t buy in the end.
      I checked Argos next door before I left and they were completely out of stock on Pro’s so at the moment the hunt continues.

      Ah nightmare! I haven’t committed to any deal yet as I haven’t had a chance to get out of work.
      Argos by me have the fortnite pack at £349, but I’m not rushing out for that.

      My Argos didn't even have that.
      When I looked online at Game this morning they had the red Spiderman console back up for pre-order which I'm tempted by.

      The £349 Console and Spidey game is also available at ShopTo to pre order but amazon only have it at £369 strangely.

      Game are the only uk seller that have the red limited edition console though.
      Amazon seem to be either out of stock or over priced on Sony consoles at the moment, I’m not sure what’s going on with them.
