We knew it was coming, and now it's here: The best Black Friday deal on PlayStation 4 hardware is now available, as of Sunday, Nov. 18. You can renew every year around this time - assuming that Sony continues to offer the deal in the future.
This year seems to have surprisingly few exclusive deals, with gaming products from Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo carrying almost identical discounts across major retailers. Best Buy's console deals are limited in number, but they present a good way to pick up any of the big systems. In the meantime, Sony is celebrating the successes its had with the current console generation.
The mark the occasion the company has also released some interesting new stats with regards to the popular console. Most deals above will direct you to either Walmart or GameStop, like many retailers, both have a $35 shipping threshold for free shipping.
If you don't want the above two games or the Move controllers, there are several other deals on a variety of bundles at many retailers. If you've been on the fence about virtual reality, you can save up to $100 on several of these bundles. Unlike the standard PS4, the Xbox One S offers 4K playback and added compatibility with smart home devices and cable boxes.
For games, you really can't go wrong with $10 Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition, or any of the Uncharted titles at the same low $10 price tag. GameStop has deals on SanDisk microSD cards. The future DLCs will arrive on the title seven days before other platforms.
This is separate to the main PlayStation 4 Black Friday sale for 2018. GameStop is also offering huge discounts on consoles.
