Looking to get a new PS4 with Fifa21 and 2 controllers for my 8yo for Christmas.
I see this bundle on Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08J8CH238/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A4BKKE8JVBLAG&psc=1
for 329GBP incl delivery to Ireland.
The seller is "Shop Go Ltd" behind Amazon.
Is this a good deal ? Welcome any advice before I take the plunge.

Argos have the same bundle (Stock permitting) for €338.79
Taking the historical price of a PS4, it's a decent price price for the bundle.
The main issue is there is a new generation of consoles launching next month,
so it's a current gen price for a console that is (almost) last gen.
As such, combining a new console with Black Friday next month, you may be able to get the bundle for a cheaper price end of November - but that's a gamble against stock levels (plus there may not be a price drop).
Also, there'll be a large amount of PS4s (both regular and PRO) on offer secondhand in the next few months. I's be wary of a secondhand console (not to besmirch the honour of those sellers form boards), plus may not be ideal for a Christmas present.
Apart from that, it's a good choice for a starting console - this late in the consoles life there is a large selection of software across all genres. Some are even good!
Also (also) - there are two subscriptions with a PS4 (both optional)
PS Plus is required for online play (and also there is a couple of games given away each month.
PS Now is a library of games for download or streaming (some older[Ps3] games can only be streamed) - there's a large selection of children games, including several Lego titles.
Both have 7 day trials so don't worry too much.
