Sony's PlayStation 5 Slim console launched last November and Best Buy and other retailers have been hosting solid deals on the hardware for a few weeks now. At Best Buy, you can get the PS5 Slim (Disc Edition) Spider-Man 2 Bundle for $449.99, down from its launch price of $499.99.

The PS5 Slim (Digital Edition) Spider-Man 2 Bundle is available for $399.99, down from $449.99. Sony increased the price of the Digital Edition by $50 at the launch of the new Slim consoles, so this deal effectively brings the price back down to the level of the original PS5 Digital Edition.

Both bundles also include the Spider-Man 2 game as a digital download, which is an extra value worth $69.99 when not on sale. You can also find video game gift cards on sale at Best Buy this week, as well as Nintendo Switch consoles and games.

These "record prices" seem like the same ones that we saw on Black Friday and during every other sale since then. I personally don't recognize anything different.

I’m confused by the PS5 slim. Usually slim models have new processors that are more efficient and cheaper, but from the reviews I’ve seen, they were using the same chips, pull the same power and have the same heat. And aren’t much slimmer. And now they don’t look much cheaper even, minus this $50 discount.
It's because they made a few silent revisions of the "fat" model that had lower power draw and were a bit lighter. The slim model is a smaller version of the latest "fat" revision. So if you have an original 2020 launch model, there is a bigger difference. (Not graphically though) The slim also has 1TB of SSD storage vs the 825GB on the "fat" model.

As an owner of the slim I can say that it is a very light system. And I also like the dual USB-C on the front as well.
