Somehow we’re approaching the end of the year already and that means we better get ourselves ready for all the PS4 Black Friday deals to come in 2020.
We’re still a good few weeks out from the big sales event kicking off proper, but some retailers will be getting offers live early across the entirety of November. Yep, the sales are eternal now. Still, if you’re looking to snag an early PS4 bargain prior to Black Friday you’ve come to the right place.
Whether you’re after PS4 console, the beefier PS4 Pro or a big discount on your next PS Plus subscription you’ll be able to find it right here. Plus, we’ve got our predictions for what other PlayStation goodies might be discounted later this year.
What about the other consoles? Good news! We’ve also got pages dedicated to the best Nintendo Switch Black Friday and Xbox Black Friday deals.
The latest PS4 Black Friday deals
We might be jumping the gun a bit here! However, if you can’t hold off on a purchase for another few weeks then here are a handful of early PS4 deals available ahead of Black Friday or products you’ll want to keep an eye on. Snap up something now if you really want, but we can almost guarantee that anything you see here will be beaten as we head later into November.
Last year’s best PS4 Black Friday deals
The PS4 Slim was definitely the console to go for if you were looking for the best PS4 Black Friday deal last year. Both the UK and US saw some unique and incredible value console bundles.
Both included a selection of the console’s top-rated games, including the likes of Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us Remastered and God of War. In the UK, you could throw in copies of Red Dead Redemption 2 and Grand Theft Auto 5 and pay just £250 for it all. In the US, meanwhile, the bundle was a very tempting $200.
Things were less exciting for the PS4 Pro, where it was the US who came away with the best bundle deal over Black Friday. It included copies of superhero webslinger Spider-Man, the brutal reimagining of God of War and competent open-world adventure Horizon Zero Dawn. All of that together? Just $300! Not bad, indeed.
The US had better game deals as well, while discounts to PS Plus and PSVR were universally available. It was a great time to pick up the latter, with an escape from the mundanity of the real world and entry to a virtual one for under £200.
The PS4 Black Friday deals to expect in 2020
With Sony still set to support the PS4 with major PS5 releases such as Horizon Forbidden West and Spider-Man: Miles Morales, we’re hoping that there should still be more units of the current-gen PS4 and PS4 Pro to be discounted over Black Friday.
Given they will still be sought-after, it’s difficult to see them being reduced to truly bargain basement prices. That said, offers in line with (or slightly better than) 2019 should be on the cards. We’ll be keeping an eye out for the return of last year’s more popular bundles, or newer ones that have been made available with The Last of Us Part 2 and Fifa 21.
You should obviously expect to see PS Plus memberships on sale, so that will be a great time to extend your membership as we head into the PS5 era.
Similarly, there’s a good chance that the game download and streaming service PS Now will also be reduced after it was discounted by 30 per cent over Amazon Prime Day. Sony’s attempt to compete with Game Pass is steadily gaining traction, with the likes of Spider-Man and Days Gone having recently been available through it.
Next to that, we’ll be hunting down offers for some of the console’s top games and accessories. This includes Black Friday favourite PSVR. Will we simply see the same offers as last year or will a more significant discount be on the way? We’ll just have to wait and see over the coming weeks!
Will the PS5 be on sale for Black Friday?
Absolutely not. Pre-orders for Sony’s next-gen console completely sold out in the blink of an eye back in October, so definitely don’t expect a discount on the PS5 this Black Friday – especially when it’ll only have been out for two weeks (or one week in some regions)! There probably won’t be anything on the next-gen games or accessories, either.
Heck, we might only be lucky enough to get some new stock of the console before the year is out. Sony has said they are aiming to have the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition available to buy again at launch, but we don’t expect these units to stick around for long.
Some new PS5 stock could be held back to the Black Friday sales period to take advantage of the increased spending. That said, with the way the console has flown off the digital shelves already, we’re sure Sony just wants to get more out there as soon as possible.
Until then, there should be enough here to get you ready for the main event. We’ll continue to update the page will any more early PS4 Black Friday deals as and when we spot them. Or, why not give Jelly Deals a follow on Twitter for up-to-the-minute bargains from across the web?
