This holiday season is looking to be a big one for Sony. Although the PlayStation 4 recently received a price cut, that hasn't stopped the company from slashing prices further for its Black Friday sales, which generally begin on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 26. We've got a round-up of the best deals for new PlayStation 4 owners, including those on consoles, games and PlayStation Plus memberships, too.
Check out our post below for the highlights, and don't forget to keep checking back for updates leading up to the big day for all the top-notch deals.
PlayStation 4 bundles
If you've finally decided to pick up a PS4, the best way to go isn't to get a console on its own, but to buy a bundle. Most retailers offer the exact same deal: the Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection set for $299. You can pick this one up from Target, GameStop, Best Buy, Sam's Club, Walmart and Toys R Us.
Can't decide which store to go to? If you're willing to make the trek to the store on Thanksgiving Day, check out Meijer. While the supermarket chain will only offer the $299 bundle on Nov. 26, and not Black Friday, you'll get an extra $50 coupon for your trouble.
With the package typically going for $349, Black Friday is your time to grab the system for $50 off. A bunch of stores are offering this one up as a doorbuster, meaning you'll want to head to the store — or, in some cases, online — as soon as it opens.
Sam's Club also has a Star Wars Battlefront bundle on sale for $389, which comes with the upcoming game as well as a 500 GB PS4. The best deal on this one, though, is either Best Buy's or GameStop's. Both will have the limited edition set for just $349, and GameStop is throwing in a free gift with its bundle — a Star Wars Console Carrier backpack.
GameStop recently revealed that it will throw in a copy of Destiny: The Taken King's Legendary Edition with your purchase of a $429.99 1 TB Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 bundle.
The biggest games
A number of PlayStation 4 games will be discounted during the shopping season, including some of this year's most popular releases.
Several console exclusives are receiving major discounts this season. Bloodborne is just $20 at Best Buy and GameStop. Best Buy is offering Until Dawn, Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD and Final Fantasy 14: Heavensward at that price point, too.
If you head to GameStop a little early — on Nov. 24 and 25 — you can pick up Transformers: Devastation for $29.99. They've got the PS4 Camera on sale at the $29.99 price during that period, too.
Tearaway Unfolded, the PS4 revamp of the PlayStation Vita title can be yours for just $20, too, thanks to Toys R Us.
Batman: Arkham Knight will be on sale for only $25 at Walmart.
For popular games like Fallout 4 and Star Wars Battlefront, don't expect a price cut — but Best Buy will compensate you with a PlayStation Plus membership for just $4.99.
Time to sign up for PS Plus
PlayStation Plus memberships will be discounted at numerous stores during Black Friday. Walmart has the best price for the standalone three-month subscription at just $10.
Controllers at a discount
If you want to pick up a second DualShock 4, you can grab one for $39.99 from the majority of retailers.
Update: We've added Best Buy's great deal on the Star Wars Battlefront bundle, as well as its console exclusives on sale for just $20. We've also called out Toys R Us' offer on Tearaway, another PS4 exclusive, as well as its discount on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5.
Update (Nov. 19): Meijer's bundle deal — which is technically good the day before Black Friday, and not the holiday itself — has been added.
Update (Nov. 20): We've added GameStop's latest offers, like the Star Wars Battlefront Bundle, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 set, discounts on Transformers: Devastation and Bloodborne, and a price cut on the PS4 camera.
Correction: Only the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 are on sale at Walmart for $29. We've edited the article to reflect this.
