Nothing fancy here, just the console itself, no games included with this one. £249 is a barnstorming price for a refurbished PS4, and it comes with a 12 month Tesco Outlet warranty.
The PS4 may be selling like hot cakes, but there's a case to be made that it's lacking exclusive clout. Despite the best efforts of the indie scene, Sony's best first-party studios simply weren't ready to deploy their big guns during the console's first year, seeing as they'd supported the PS3 right up to the death. "Greatness awaits," promised the pitch, and we're still waiting.
But not for much longer.
2015 is set to be a barnstorming year for the PS4, and there's a huge amount to look forward to. From massive AAA juggernauts to new IPs and exciting experimental boutique titles, there's an astonishing wealth of software on the way, so here's what we'd consider to be the hottest games on the slate along with links to our coverage where possible. Greatness awaits? Greatness awakes, hopefully.
Well, we've got to start somewhere, so let's get this out of the way first. Though we love the look of The Order's setting, both Matt and I emerged from hands-on preview sessions somewhat worried about the gameplay of Ready At Dawn's "cinematic" shooter. All too often it seems to fall back on contrived and sluggish third-person cliches, from QTEs to instant-failure stealth, that will need to be supported by much wider and more engaging levels to make for a worthwhile experience.
However, for me it all hinges on the story. If The Order delivers a tale worth telling, I think many gamers will be absolutely fine with a more focused take on the genre. Plus, the thermite gun is amazing. Fingers crossed.
Looking for a no-frills route into PS4 gaming? Maybe you nabbed a whole bunch of games deals in advance and now just need the console Well, whatever the reason, if you're just looking for a cheap price for the PlayStation 4 console itself, Simply Games have you covered.

News abounded this morning that PlayStation TV received an unofficial price drop in the US, with retailers lowering the price on the microconsole by $20-$40. With PlayStation Now about to drop in the States with a sparkly, new subscription model, PlayStation TV is suddenly a much more attractive proposition. Mind you, when I wrote my first impressions piece for the platform, asking who on earth this over-priced, under-specced, half-baked product could be for, a plethora of comments from American PS TV fans came my way quibbling about price and highligth how the small black box had found a space in their lives.
A month on, and I found myself agreeing with them in my PS TV review. None of the criticisms had changed, but I found myself playing Vita games more readily than I ever had with the handheld console (the DualShock 4 is just infinitely more comfortable) and enjoying Remote Play for singleplayer games that proved pretty lag free.
But that price point is still an issue here in the UK, and we like to call bullsh*t when we see itClick here to read more...
Sony have finally introduced subscriptions to PlayStation Now -- the PS4 streaming service for older games that was, as we previously suggested, laughably overpriced. Here's what we said about PS Now back in June:
"There are a number of things to notice straight away, not least that some of the 90-day rental prices match or even exceed the asking price to buy the games outright on PSN. While it's true that PS Now does come with some added benefits, such as being able to play supported games across PS3, PS Vita, PS4, and PlayStation-enabled Sony TVs, alongside account-based cloud saving to allow for one game to continue across those multiple devices, these prices seem seriously steep."
The biggest criticism of the service by far, though, was the lack of an all-you-can-eat subscription model, something that Sony have moved to rectify as the service launches fully in the US. The companyt announced that PS Now will launch on PS4 in the US on January 13th, costing $19.99 per month or a discounted $44.99 for three months. That money will get you unlimited access to over 100 PS3 games available through the streaming service, with PS Now appearing on other devices "in the future". Apparently, there'll also be a free seven-day trial when the services launches.Click here to read more...

Sony have announced that they will be issuing five free days of PS Plus to those who found themselves affected by the PSN outages over the Christmas period, and that there'll be an upcoming 10% sale as a "HolidayThank You" for bearing with the Christmas woes.Click here to read more...
[UPDATE: The standard black model is available for the same price]
How cool is the white PS4? It's cool as ice, but this price is hotter than hell for Sony's stylish white PS4 as you can now pick it up for £279.99. You can opt for home delivery or check out the stock at your local store. At this price though, it won't be around for long. Let's put it this way, back in November, this was about £350.
This white PS4 is a 500GB model and comes with all the usual cables, a basic earbud headset and a white controller.
Thanks to oye81.
Made the jump to PLayStation for this new console generation? Well, you should consider TLOU Remastered unmissable in that case. Shonky combat and repetitive mechanics can't dull one of the finest stories in the medium, presented with some excellent production values, and superb acting performances. Cheers tommysmi!
The Mega Pack includes a PS4 with LittleBigPlanet 3, two controllers, PS camera, and an Oddsock plushie. It's a damn good deal if, and this is a fairly big if, you're going to get good mileage out of the hardware involved. If you're planning on spending lots of time playing around with the camera in LBP 3 or will be building on your game collection with further titles offering local multiplayer, then this is a pretty good shout.
Oddsock sort of looks like he's been messily eating cake, though. Or liquorice. Cheers sunking!
