Starting today, stores around the world have begun offering discounts on the new console model. PlayStation 5. The so-called Slim can also be purchased at a discount in Czech and Slovak stores.
PS5 slim is now selling for the price of the digital edition without a Blu-ray drive. You can save 1600 CZK., because from the initial 13,590 CZK, the basic version is available in domestic stores for 11,990 CZK. In the case of Slovakia, the price will be 475 euros instead of 549.90 euros.
The discount is valid until February 29/February, or while supplies last. Last week, insider and data miner Billbil-kun lured with a discount.
Why discounts after Christmas? There are unofficial reports from Chinese factories about the suspension of production of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles. It is assumed that Sony and Microsoft have enough pieces, especially the Japanese company must have been surprised by less interest in the PlayStation 5 in the last month of 2023, although interest was better than a year earlier. But Sony expected even more, so it should have ramped up production before Christmas and secured enough stores around the world. Now he probably wants to sell these things at a discount.
In January/January, PS5 was the best-selling console in Europe, and The Last of Us Part 2 Remastered became the most popular new product in February, with sales 2.5 times higher than sales of The Last of Us Part 1 in the first month. The improved second adventure of the heroine Ellie was not enough for EA Sports FC 24 from Electronic Arts.
Grand Theft Auto publisher Take-Two Interactive recently reported that Xbox Series X/S sales should be around 24 million units, and PlayStation 5 – 50 million.
