Best PS5 Deals of August 2021 • Eurogamer.net
The console hasn’t been out for long, but that hasn’t stopped us from trying to put together the best PS5 deals on games, accessories, and more.
It is not good to have a cutting edge console until you also have a few games to play. And even in its early days, the PS5 certainly has a wide range of games available, whether via download or disc, including big-name exclusives, indie industry favorites, and blockbusters. We will update this page regularly to keep you instantly informed on where to find the best PS5 deals.
Of course, we won’t waste your time promising PS5 bundle deals, as the console itself is hard enough to come by right now. So for news on the next installment, just take a look at our PS5 stock page.
And while we don’t expect there to be many Prime Day deals on PS5 this year, you might find a game, accessory, or PS Plus membership discount worth getting!

PS5 consoles and bundles
Of course, this early in the console’s life we won’t see many, if any, PS5 bundle deals. It’s hard enough keeping up with the minimum PS5 stock levels that pop up and sell out in minutes with every drop.
However, there are PS5 bundles. Some are better value for money than others, so we’ll try to avoid the ones featuring ugly t-shirts, unnecessary off-brand accessories, or other random tattoos, unless you’re so desperate for a console. Sony just released an official Ratchet and Clank PS5 bundle, so this will be one to watch all year long and through Black Friday.
For now, though, your best bet is to sign up for our PS5 stock page for regular updates and submit Jelly Deals below. Twitter for the latest alerts for the PS5 console.
PS5 game deals
After a fairly sparse period of PS5 game deals, we had a nice change of pace with the Days of Play sale and eBay’s latest 20 percent discount coupon. These drastically lowered the price of Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, Demon’s Souls, and many others.
This year’s Amazon Prime Day sale also brought a lot of deals. Outriders, Hitman 3, Immortals Fenyx Rising, and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla all featured, and we hope they’ll make a comeback in future sales.
For now, here are the best August deals.
PS5 controller deals
Finding major PS5 controller deals right now isn’t easy, to say the least. The DualSense is one of the most popular elements of the new console, with haptic feedback, dynamic triggers, and a pleasantly ergonomic design that makes it comfortable to hold while touring New York or fighting for Boletaria. However, not all prices are the same, and these are the best that we have found cheap for this month.
PS Plus and PS Now deals
If you want to get the most out of your PlayStation, you will need PS Plus for all those monthly games and multiplayer sessions or PS Now to stream games directly to your console.
Both services regularly get 25 percent discounts during big sales events, though you can sometimes save a few extra pennies depending on where you shop.
PS5 accessory deals
There are always a variety of extras to enhance your PS5 experience, whether it’s adding new features, making things easier, or maintaining healthy console care. We’ll include any of the best PS5 accessory deals here for you to peruse carefully, whether they’re official products or high-quality Digital Foundry-approved third-party options.
We recommend that you also bring a decent gaming headset for your PS5, as the console supports 3D spatial audio in many of its games. At the time of writing, the only way to experience 3D audio on the PS5 is with a headset, and it is compatible with both premium and third-party headsets. It basically adds a level of dimension to the sounds, which not only adds to the immersive experience, but is particularly useful in competitive multiplayer games.
In the meantime, if you are looking for alternatives to the always out of stock DualSense charging station, we have selected some of the best PS5 controller charger alternatives at Jelly Deals.
