Sony's Days of Play sale ends today, June 12, which means it's your last chance for a while to make some big savings on games and the console itself. It's rare that Sony discounts its hardware directly, so if you're looking to grab a PS5 for less, then definitely check out this deal that knocks the PS5 down by $50 to just $399

These PlayStation deals are available on both the digital edition PS5 Slim as well as the one that comes with a disc drive, for those who prefer physical copies rather than downloading games via PSN. 

The digital edition is the cheapest option at $399 on Amazon, with Best Buy offering (almost) the same $50 savings. Just note that you'll be limited to downloading your games rather than sliding a disc in. That means the days of trading in your old games are gone, though it does mean that you won't have to find a game every time you want to play it, and we all know the game you want is never in the right box anyway.

If you prefer your media in its physical form, you can get the disc drive-equipped model for $50 more. It's currently $449 at Amazon and $450 at Best Buy, down from its retail price of $500. 

Hey, did you know? CNET Deals texts are free, easy and save you money.

Both of these consoles are the newest slim iterations which means they're thinner and smaller than the previous models. They both come with 1TB of storage with support for 4K, 120Hz and HDR gaming. Sony also throws in the delightful Astro's Playroom game to introduce the console and new mechanics. 

Now that you have your new console, why not treat yourself to a PSVR 2 headset deal to go with it? Or check out the best PS5 games to play right now, including the likes of Marvel's Spider-Man, God of War, Horizon and more.
