Black Friday PS4 deals are so close now, and while it’s a bit of an unknown area with stock low and a next-gen console PS5 release on the horizon, we’re still hoping for big savings.
Stock is a mixed picture, with the US seeing very few consoles on sale while the UK seems to have more bundles available.
Thanks to the pandemic, you’ll find all the PS4 deals online this year. As more deals go online there’s a nice increase in competition which drives prices down.
We’ll be keeping an eye on the best Black Friday PS4 and PS4 Pro deals for you, keeping note here – so bookmark the page so you do not miss the bargain that you have been waiting for. Plus, see our guide to all the best early Black Friday deals from major retailers.
Best PS4 deals live now
When will PS4 Black Friday deals start?
Black Friday 2020 starts on 27th November, but we all know by now that deals start long before that so much so the whole of November becomes a sale. Currys already has its sale on and Amazon has some early Black Friday deals. We expect more of the same this year.
Top Black Friday PS4 deals last year
While the PS5 does change things this year, we expect an echo of the deals we tracked on the PS4 in 2019. It’ll really come down to the best price for Black Friday. The PS5 is quite pricey at £449 and £359 depending which console you go for, so if you’re not ready to make that leap then a PS4 deal is a safe bet.
Bundles were the name of the game last year with some great savings to be found. God Of War, The Last Of Us Remastered and Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition were all available as part of a 1TB console bundle that clocked in around the £200 mark – which even now is a super saving that we would not turn our noses up at.
Look for more of the same this year but with potentially larger discounts to be found given that the PS5 will be released by the time the sale kicks off. While we do not expect the PS4 to be discontinued any time soon, the new console will need to have been out for a while and be readily available for that to happen, we should see retailers wanting to clear their stock so they can focus on next-gen gaming sales.
A cheap PS4 Slim may also be the way to go if you want to wait a bit before getting the PS5. Remember games will be cross-generational for the PS5 so building your collection with a PS4 isn’t a waste of time.
The PS4 Pro also saw a slight reduction which was nice given that was it still a relatively new console at the time. PS4 accessories including controllers and headsets were on offer too and there were a large number of games that saw prices slashed.
PlayStation VR saw huge savings last year with the price dropping from a then £249 to around the £179 mark in some places. Considering that Sony are still heavily invested in in the world of virtual reality, look for more of the same this year.
The PS VR Mega Pack also saw a significant drop in price, coming down from £299 to £209.
Will there be PS5 Black Friday deals?
Very unlikely. The PS5 will only have been out for a week or so by the time Black Friday starts and given how huge the demand is, and how quickly the consoles sold out when preorders went live, it is nigh on impossible that we will see deals on the machine itself. It is possible that accessories may see a slight reduction though.
Should you buy early Black Friday deals?
If you see a deal that is within your budget and looks to be a good saving then yes! While we expect new offers when the sale commences, there is no guarantee that an offer you see now will also be available at the end of November. It is a gamble but either way, you will be saving yourself some money.
How much will a PS4 cost on Black Friday?
The PS4 has already seen a drop in price lately with the console now available to buy for around the £249 mark- and that includes a game! Could we be seeing this drop to around the £199 mark? It is certainly possible but regardless, this will be your best chance yet to pick up the last-gen machine.
What’s the difference between PS4 and PS4 Pro?
The PS4 Pro is a more powerful, 4K version of the PS4. Compared to the standard PS4, the PS4 Pro should be able to load games faster and the graphics will be improved. For instance, the picture will be sharper and the textures more defined while shade and light, in particular, will tend to look more realistic.
Both consoles have the same 1TB storage options and 8GB memory, although the memory on the PS4 Pro runs faster so the overall performance should be better. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and HDR (High Dynamic Range – enhanced colours and detail on images) features are present on both versions.
There’s now also the updated PS4 Slim version, as well as the PS4 Pro, which Sony has labelled “the most powerful PlayStation ever made” and also supports 4K and HDR gaming. Expect the PS4 to seem some reductions in the sale- especially now the new console is upon us.
And, if you’re considering the PS5 or non-Sony consoles, take a look at our in-depth comparison of the PS4 Pro vs Xbox One X and PS5 vs PS4, too.
