We’ve got some good news for those of you who’ve been looking to upgrade to the current console generation along with grabbing a few great games right off the bat at a cheaper price – Amazon has discounted the Playstation 4’s Black Friday bundle that was introduced last year for the mentioned occasion. The bundle comes with GTA V, The Last of Us Remastered and of course the PS4 console itself.
This is hardly the first time GTA V has been discounted on the PS4. Rockstar’s massively popular game is usually on sale constantly, moving between platforms and retailers with stunning frequency. Discounts appear and disappear back to back all the time. Prospective buyers pretty much have no reason to buy the game full price, as it is on sale for each platform at least once a month, but usually more frequently.
Not only that, but the sales are becoming more and more generous. The lowest price record of GTA V was broken just recently, pushing the game’s price below the $30 mark for the first time. Shark Card sales are also becoming more frequent in recent weeks, so buying up some in-game cash is getting more affordable.
The bundle contains the base PS4 500 GB console with all the doodads (cords, camera, headset, one controller) and digital activation codes for both games. The bundle was originally intended to be a Black Friday exclusive, to be snatched all up by the ravenous hordes of ferocious shoppers, however surprisingly enough there were plenty of leftovers.
At full price, this console bundle goes for $519.97, however if you purchase from Amazon you’ll get it for 12% off plus free shipping. Now, 12% may not look like much at first glance, however considering that the discounted price is $455.50, meaning buyers save $64.47, shows that it isn’t all that insignificant. The price of a newly released AAA game comes off the console bundle – so you’ll have enough left over to nab a third title for your new and shiny PS4.
Jumping in on the PS4 might be a good idea, as Sony will be releasing the Playstation VR device this October. Obviously, you’ll need a PS4 console to use the device, so why not cash in on the discount?
At the same time, you might want to consider holding off on the console, as Sony is allegedly working on a “PS4.5” with a beefier interior, able to support 4K.
Will you be nabbing this GTA V console bundle, or are you holding off?
