Come get the best Black Friday deals on PS4 bundles and games.
Black Friday is coming and with it, the thrill of not knowing whether you’ll make it out of the high street without getting crushed to death by a stampede of millennials ready to fight to the death over a half price toaster.
The eating of turkey is no longer the hallowed day it once was, and all everyone’s waiting for is the chance to rush off down the shops to catch a bargain.
The tradition of clubbing people to within an inch of their life with your free hand while grabbing the last of the merchandise off the shelves has been embraced on all shores, which means you should start saving some cash ahead of time for the big day.
When does Black Friday start?
Black Friday falls on November 24, with Cyber Monday deals kicking in a few days later on November 27.
A lot of retailers start discounting their stock on the Friday before, so it’s likely that we’ll see some tantalising deals starting Friday 17 November, so keep checking in as we get closer to the big day.
Expect to see a lot of cut price PS4, PS4 slim, Xbox One, and Xbox One S consoles over Black Friday as retailers sell off stock to make room for the shiny new versions; in this case, the PS4 Pro and Xbox One X.
Looking at last year, you could pick up a PS4 Slim with Call of Duty Infinite Warfare for £189 from eBay, which was by far the cheapest PS4 deal around. In terms of the best value PS4 bundle, Tesco Direct came out ahead with a bundle offering a PS4 500GB Slim console with Uncharted 4, Titanfall 2, Mafia 3, FIFA 17, Dishonored 2 and Battlefield 1, all for £279.99 which is a little insane but unquestionably superb value. As for games on their own, Amazon was offering Destiny The Collection for £20, Overwatch for £25, DOOM for only £16 and then-newly-released Watch Dogs 2 for £32.
Last year’s deals tell us a little bit about what to expect this year. For one, there was a definite focus on adding value to console bundles by throwing in a frankly ludicrous amount of games and pricing the whole lot up with a big saving rather than just discounting consoles on their own. Now that the PS4 Pro has been out for a year and the Xbox One X will be on the market by the time Black Friday 2017 actually rolls around, it’s highly likely that we’ll see a whole range of 4K TVs seeing deep discounts, especially if they happen to be last year’s models and not the current cutting edge tech.
