Do not go to the mall, even if you need to finish shopping for the holidays. Don’t do it! We’ve been there, and it’s a morass of redone-for-the-47th-time Christmas carols, angry shoppers with bad intentions, blinking lights, and screaming children. You’ll leave with a dozen bruises from aggressive people with heavy bags that totally slammed them into your legs on purpose, or sticky from the ice cream cones that parents give their kids to keep them quiet in the Disney store. That kid totally meant to cover us with rocky road! It’s far safer to shop online and stay inside. If you’re not already calling in sick to work to play Just Cause 4, there are some great deals on PS4 to keep you safe and snug in your own little house. Just order a big box of socks from Costco. Everyone loves socks, right? Here are the best deals on PS4 for the week ending December 16.
