This year, Sony released two new versions of the PlayStation 4, which had already sold fairly well for the company. They introduced the PlayStation 4 Slim and the PlayStation 4 Pro. The PlayStation 4 Slim is the cheaper model, and a bit slimmer, hence the name. The PlayStation 4 Slim does just about everything that the regular PlayStation 4 does, but it is a bit cheaper, and right now you can pick up the Uncharted 4 PlayStation 4 Slim bundle for just $249. But Amazon is also throwing in a $25 gift card that makes it even cheaper (in the long run, unless you never buy anything from Amazon). This can also take care of multiple people on your shopping list this year, as you have the PlayStation 4 Slim for one person and perhaps a $25 Amazon Gift Card for someone else.
The PlayStation 4 Slim has definitely been much more popular than Microsoft's Xbox One S, which was also announced this year. Although it does compete more with the PlayStation 4 Pro. The PlayStation 4 Slim has all kinds of great games, and you can have even more fun by signing up for PlayStation Plus. This allows you to play games online, but also gives you a slew of free games every single month. Typically a 12-month plan would cost you $59.99, about $5/month, but you can grab one from Amazon for just $49.99!
