PS4, Alien Isolation, Destiny, FIFA 15, Minecraft, £394.98 @ Sainsbury's In Store

Found 29th Oct 2014
As part of their new round of console deals, Sainsbury's are doing a PS4 with Destiny, FIFA 15 and Minecraft for £374.99. You can also add any of the following to the deal:

Alien Isolation - £19.99
Wolfenstein - £19.99
Watch Dogs - £19.99
PS Plus 12 Month - £34.99
PS4 Controller - £34.99
Turtle Beach P12 (I think) - £19.99

There's maybe more add-on deals. Those are just the ones I can remember seeing (and in Stafford, which isn't that big a store). Adding Alien to make up the headline deal seems like a no-brainer given CEX are still paying £32 cash for it.

If you're a Sainsbury's colleague, I believe the current colleague discount promotion brings this down to a stunning £335.74! Mental deal for anyone eligible. Almost rude to say 'no'.

yaaaayyyy woooo 15% discount im so getting this. go sainsburys colleagues

I'm smelling blood in the water for PS4 deals I guess that as XBone deals get cheaper and cheaper the PS4 needs to have similar to keep up I may have to dip my toe into the water very soon (I hope!).

Insane deal with the 15% staff discount, lucky employees

Glad someone has summarised the deals better than I did! the deals are decent.

With the xbox one side of things, you can get the xbox one lego marvel hard Bundle, alien Isolation and Wolfenstein for £359.97.

Take 15% colleague discount off, your looking at about £305 for the lot.

And as you mentioned on the ps4 side, there's also deals on the xbox live subs and 1st party accessories to.

When does the Sainsburys 15% discount start?? Is it on at the same time as the Nectar double points voucher deal?

I got the bundle from tesco direct. 334 fifa minecraft and alien. then bought destiny for 40 that's 374? and I didn't shop around for destiny. so it's only hot if you have employee discount. not voting either way.

That bundle was a glitch though, and no longer available. This is the best deal around now.

Tesco also had an Xbox One with Forza Horizon 2, Evil Within and Alien for £335. That was a glitch too. With that deal as a benchmark we aren't likely to see a 'hot' Xbox One deal for a while.

I voted cold - in comparison to the Tesco deal a few weeks ago which was £339 excluding Destiny. Great if you've got the Sainsbury's staff discount though!

Ah ok, cheers!

I got the same deal from Tesco Direct 2 weeks ago for £324. PS4, FIFA 15, Mine craft, Alien Isolation.

I've heard that the ps4 price will drop very very soon. to really blow ms out the water.

Very very soon. Hope so.

With the failure rate of the PS4 it wont be long before ms catch up. Already been through 3 PS4 in 8 months, constant game crashes, voted cold not because of the deal but because of a console that isn't stable enough to play games.

Probably about the same as the noisy XB1's that were around...
eurogamer.net/art…les
Some people on here had to return two or three XB1's before they got a good one.
No figures released regarding failure rates of either console, but I would say they'll be similar.

Both ms and Sony keep things quiet but ms made a mistake of not telling people the noise issue was easily fixed in there new firmware. As for Sony on the CE issue its been nearly a year and still no fix trust me its a console killer, if i could go back i would have waited until all problems are sorted before touching a PS4. .

If i new about this issue before hand i wouldn't have bought one myself.

I got a similar deal through ShopTo a few weeks back. It had Fifa 15, Minecraft, Wolfenstein and Infamous First Light for £369.99. There are some great deals around at the moment in the run up to xmas so its a good time to get a PS4. I can't really see major new year price cuts in January as it looks the discounts are happening now to shift stock before xmas.

What are you people waiting for!!

I'm pretty sure that 2.0 will have fixed all those. The last page of comments are just Xbox fanboys who have joined to make one comment lol
I don't know why you are actually bothered, you sold yours to a friend in August.
Funny how you never mentioned your issues on here... Although you've been on a lot of Xbox One threads.

How do i become a colleague?

Just went to a couple of stores in London and there was no such offer, just the common FIFA + Minecraft offer. The staff said that they never heard of this offer as well. I even called the store in Stafford, but the manager there also said that he wasn't aware of this offer, or a similar one. Does anyone know of a store that the offer mentioned here is valid?

I snapped that image yesterday. Not the best effort, I know. There's a plinth with the FIFA deal on it, the deal in this post is advertised on the Entertainment Isle.

Just visited another big store and it didn't have this offer as well. My guess is that this was an offer only at the store that you visited and it is most probably not available there anymore as well.

lol. ps4 is doing extremly well, in console sales and software sales. software number wise its scary how much ps4 is shifting. titles like fifa shifting more on playsttaion than xbox, who'd have seen that.

as for hardware issues...this always happens with new hardware,ps4.xbone and wii u all struggled in the opening year. if you think ps4 is bad xbox will kill your faith in hardware design. where i work, issue wise its levelled at 90% of issues are with xbox 9% playstation & 1% nintendo. consumers have found xboxs are plagued with issues. we frequently have them returned , there's been several incidents of one customer going through 5 or so in a few weeks. playstations the only recurring issue tends to be the grips on the controllers.

Just want to clarify would it be possible for a sainsburys employee to buy 2 consoles/bundles with the discount, and its for themselves?

Original Poster

If the rules are the same as they were before I left, there's no strict limit on how many units you can buy with discount. You're just not allowed to buy them to sell on. Buying two isn't going to be a problem -it's totally reasonable to have two consoles at home, or to buy one as a gift. Just don't bulk buy. That' s when people start asking questions.

Saw this deal today in the Hull store. Tempted but waiting for something a little better.

Your guess would be wrong. The offer is national, is still on and doesn't finish until 27/11. Just got a mate who works at Stafford to check. More likely, some stores haven't put their advertising out.

can you add multiple offers on to this?Such as 2 games for £19.99 each?

can you grab 2 games for £19.99 each with this deal or just the one?

Went to the Swansea store today but they didn't have this offer. Gutted!

Has this offer expired? I phoned Sainsburys and they said they only have the minefield fifa pack for £350 or something?

Been to 2 sainsburys and had the minecraft and fifa pack for 349.99 plus you could add Destiny, but it was 34.99 to add on.

Just bought a ps4 from sainsbury's Bury St edmunds. Prices:
PS4 with minecraft and Fifa 15 £349 and then add any of the following: Destiny £34.99, Alien Isolation £19.99, Wolfenstein £19.99. DS4 Controller £34.99, 12mth PSN+ £34.99, PS4 Headset £27, Watchdogs £19.99.
