The deal

From 26 March 2024, we’ll be carrying the new PlayStation 5, both in disc and digital-only versions.

On top of that, we’ll also be carrying the new PlayStation Portal handheld for gaming freedom; as well as the DualSense wireless controller in White or Midnight Black.

The best thing? We’re offering all of this gear on both 12- and 24-month repayment options, meaning you can split the cost of your new console up, so it’s not a huge hit on your hip pocket all at once.

Better still, until 2 April, we’ll have a launch offer special on the PlayStation 5 (with disc drive) console where you can score $75 off the device over 12- or 24-months.

Here’s the full pricing for our PlayStation 5 range (until 2 April):





The new PlayStation 5



The newly-redesigned PlayStation 5 console packs all of its power into a  smaller, more elegant footprint so you can still play like never before.

The console includes the ground-breaking DualSense wireless controller, offering immersive haptic feedback^, dynamic adaptive triggers^ and a built-in microphone, all integrated into an iconic design that brings gaming worlds to life!

The disc console also turns your PS5® into a home-entertainment masterpiece with the ability to playback 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray discs.

The PS5 packs serious power, allowing you to harness the power of a custom CPU, GPU and SSD that combine to deliver serious grunt.

You still also get 4K and 8K compatibility for amazing visuals and 3D Sound for immersive audio, along with the awesome next-gen DualSense controller that puts you right in the action.

The new PlayStation Portal Remote Player




We’ll also be carrying the unreal new PlayStation Portal handheld device, too.

The PlayStation Portal is an innovative piece of technology designed to complement the PlayStation 5 console. Imagine your favourite PS5 games streamed over Wi-Fi* to a sleek, handheld device with a vibrant 8-inch screen and familiar PlayStation controls. That's the essence of the Portal.

Instead of being a self-contained gaming device, it functions as a remote play extension for your existing PS5 so you can game in any room. Even when the TV is otherwise occupied!
