Dealhacker: Best Australian Prices For Xbox One And PlayStation 4

The E3 video game expo is in full swing, with Microsoft, Sony, EA Games and Ubisoft all announcing offerings for the PS4 and Xbox One, including the return of Halo and Uncharted. If the coverage has whetted your appetite for a new console, here are the cheapest deals in Australia.

PlayStation 4

You can currently get the PS4 from Target for $549. Annoyingly, the deal is in-store only, but at least that cuts down on delivery costs.

JB Hi-Fi also has a deal with considering — for $598 you get the console, plus the video games NBA 2K14, Watchdogs, FIFA 14 and Man of Steel. Not bad if you’re a sports game fan.

UPDATE: Until 8pm tonight (11 June), you can get the PS4 from Dick Smith for $488.

Xbox One

EB Games appears to have the cheapest local price for the Xbox One at the moment — you can snap it up for $497 which includes three games: Watch Dogs, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes and Forza 5. However, this deal does not include the Kinect motion-controlling peripheral.

If you want Kinect, the deals are pretty samey across the board: you can get the Titanfall bundle direct from the Microsoft Store for $599. This includes the games Titanfall (natch) and Forza 5.

UPDATE: Until 8pm tonight (11 June), you can get the same Xbox One Titanfall bundle from Dick Smith for $548.
