Holiday Sales: PS4 For $329, $50 Gift Card With Xbox One

Sony’s (NYSE: SNE) PlayStation 4 console has been discounted to $329 in Walmart’s new holiday sale, knocking off almost 20% (approximately 18% or $70) of the system’s $399 retail price.

This offer only includes the PS4 system, and no games are included. The deal is only available exclusively as in-store pickup, meaning you won’t be able to get it delivered, but you can still order it online and have it shipped to your local Walmart.

Walmart isn’t the only one offering holiday sales on this year’s hottest consoles: online retailer Amazon also has a nice PS4 offer.

PS4 PlayStation 4

The ‘Zon’s PlayStation 4 sale  bundles the console, a PlayStation Camera, The Last of Us: Remastered and a second game of your choice out of LittleBigPlanet 3, Far Cry 4, Destiny or NBA 2K15 all for $439.

Amazon also has three other PS4 bundle variants including a console, free game (selected out of those above) and a wired mono headset for $399,  or a PS4 with The Last of Us: Remastered and another game out of the same selection pool for $399.

The other variant has the deluxe special edition glacier white Destiny-theme PlayStation 4 bundle for a whopping $489. Compared to the above deals that’s a chunk of change, but it’s nothing compared to the audacious prices that the 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4’s have gone for.

Xbox One Holiday

Amazon and Target are giving $50 gift cards with the purchase of the AC: Unity Xbox One bundle, lowering the price to $300.

If you’re in the market for an Xbox One and happened to miss out on this year’s amazing Black Friday deals, both Amazon and Target have you covered. They’re currently giving out a free $50 gift card with the purchase of the Assassin’s Creed: Unity Xbox One bundle for $349.

The free $50 gift card lowers the price of the Xbox One to $300, and Target Red Card members save an extra 5% to boot. All in all you’ll be saving a total of $65 if you buy the bundle from Target, and you’ll also get an extra $10 off of an Xbox One controller with your purchase.

It’ll be interesting to see how much these sales boost up Microsoft’s (NASDAQ: MSFT) console sales–this route has proven to be successful, as the Xbox One outsold the PS4 for the month of November thanks to the tremendous Black Friday markdowns, and we’ll likely see this trend continue in light of these new deals.

Thanks, Polygon.
