Along with others, the PlayStation Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2024 starting on November 29 this year, the biggest weekend of online deals in the US & UK can help you save big on PS4, PS4 Pro and PS5 models.

PlayStation Black Friday Range: PS5 Black Friday Discounts

Sony launched PlayStation® 5 on November 12th, 2020 but buying a PlayStation 5 has been a really tough task. PlayStation 5 is by far one of the best-selling PS consoles and after Xbox Series X, this has been the most demanding one in recent times.

But this Black Friday, both PS5 and PS4 Pro are going to get rare heavy Black Friday discounts. However, the only problem will be the unavailability of PS5 during the festive periods, all due to the limited stocks of this awesome console.

Let's talk about PS4, PS4 Pro and PS5 Black Friday deals in detail.

 PS5 Black Friday Deals and Launch Offers

PlayStation 5 starts at $399 for 1TB version without an optical drive. It will cost an extra $100 for the optical drive version, $499.

No discounts are available on PS 5 yet, but Sony will surely offer some discounts to combat Xbox's competitive pricing.

PS4 Pro and PS controllers, on the other hand, are expected to have heavier discounts.

PS4 Pro Black Friday Discounts

PS4 Pro Black Friday Discounts

Here are the different versions of the PS4 Pro available on Amazon that you can buy.

Two main reasons lead me to believe the standard PS4 Pro console will be heavily discounted on Black Friday:

  • Sony will be looking to maximize sales of old hardware.
  • Retailers will be looking to clear out old stock to make way for the new PS5 models arriving shortly before Black Friday.

I predict the standard PS4 Pro 1TB to be slashed from $499 to $249-$300 on Black Friday, representing a 40%-50% discount. The PS4 Slim 1TB version could fall as low as $199.

Discounts on PS5 Accessories

Here are the live deals on PS5 accessories. Not a lot is going to change in these rates even during Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

What did I base these prices on?

As well as the reasons outlined above, I analyzed: Black Friday 2023 & 2022 PlayStation deals, trends in console prices over time, and compared the launch price of the PS5 to previous consoles.
