Sony may be the only company without a new piece of hardware out this year, but that may just work in buyers’ favors. There are several deals on PlayStation 4 systems, accessories and games available this Black Friday, with prices to rival those of Sony’s competitors.
Below, we’ve listed the best Black Friday discounts for everything PlayStation. Follow along to figure out where to do your shopping this holiday season.
PlayStation 4 1 TB Slim: $199.99 (regularly $299.99)
The most common console deal is on the Slim model PS4, which gets a $100 price cut on Black Friday. The majority of retailers that are selling PS4s at a discount have this one to offer.
The following retailers will have the PS4 Slim available.
- Best Buy
- Kohl’s (includes $60 Kohl’s gift card)
- Toys R Us
(Update on Nov. 23: All retailers listed either currently are out of stock or raised the price. You can sign up for in-stock alerts at Walmart and Toys R Us, and check if there’s any in-store availability.)
Some stores throw games or an extra controller into the mix as well, which is good to note. Costco not only has the PS4 Slim for $189.99 — $10 cheaper than anywhere else — but the retailer also throws in an extra controller along with it. There’s also a bundle available exclusively for online shoppers that includes the 1 TB console, Destiny 2 and Call of Duty: WWII for $289.99.
PlayStation 4 Pro: $349.99 (regularly $399.99)
For owners of 4K TVs, the Pro is the ideal PS4 model. Most retailers aren’t cutting the price on the upgraded system this holiday season, however — only one store has a discount on the PlayStation 4 Pro. GameStop will have the system on sale for $349.99, a $50 savings.
PlayStation VR bundle: $299.99 (regularly $399.99)
PlayStation VR isn’t exactly a console, but it carries a similar price tag as a full-blown PS4. The virtual reality headset got a slight revamp this year, and Sony is offering it alongside several compatible games. A bundle that includes Gran Turismo Sport (which is also playable without VR) also comes with the required PlayStation Camera; it’s available at the following stores.
There’s also a pricier set available that may still be enticing for serious VR fans. A bundle including the headset, camera, The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim VR and two PlayStation Move controllers — required for certain games, including Skyrim — costs $349.99, down from $449.99. That’s available at Amazon, although most retailers are pushing the cheaper option.
(Update on Nov. 23: Walmart has increased the price on the PlayStation VR to $309.99 and the Skyrim Playstation VR bundle on Amazon is currently out of stock.)
This year saw several fantastic PlayStation 4 exclusives, like Horizon: Zero Dawn and Yakuza 0. These are among the games discounted this Black Friday, which is great news for anyone looking to catch up with the best games of 2017.
