Should I get a PS4 or a PS4 Pro?
It’s the big question facing many looking to pick up a PlayStation 4 console this Black Friday. Is it worth grabbing a cheaper PS4 Slim or should you cough up the extra money and plump for a PS4 Pro? Essentially, your decision may come down as to whether you own or are going to buy a 4K TV or not. The biggest additional feature that you gain from picking up a PS4 Pro is that you can play games in the higher 4K resolution, something standard HD TVs cannot do. If you want the games you play to look the best they possibly can – and you have the TV tech to support it – then the Pro is the one for you.
For everyone else: whether that extra graphical bump isn’t such a major concern or it’s your first foray into the world of console gaming – then a PS4 Slim will do you just fine. It’ll play all the same games a PS4 Pro can while saving you £100 or more off the asking price. What can you spend that money on? Er, more games, obviously!
That said, you can use some of the PS4 Pro’s power while plugged into an HD TV. The Supersampling Mode, added in the PS4’s 5.50 firmware update, will render your games at a higher resolution to give the impression that they are running on a 4K display. Obviously, it’s not a true representation of a 4K image, but it’ll give you a bit of a visual bump. If you are considering an upgrade to a 4K TV soon too, you may want to future proof yourself with a PS4 Pro – at least for the next few years down the line.
Wait, isn’t the PS5 out soon?
That depends on your definition of soon. We now know that the PS5 will be launching in 2020, though it’ll be towards the end of the year. So, you’ve probably got a good 12 months until the next generation arrives.
If you’re looking to pick up a PS4 this Black Friday, though, that could work in your favour. As this will likely be the last major sales event before the launch of the PS5 we could see some terrific PS4 deals to shift all the remaining consoles. Don’t expect a dramatic stock clearance price, but there’s lots of room for a bargain.
What will the best PS4 Black Friday deals be this year?
So, with that the release date of the PS5 in mind, what PS4 Black Friday deals could we see in 2019?
Let’s start with the obvious: PS4 consoles. Whether it’s the PS4 Slim or the PS4 Pro, we fully expect both to see some tempting discounts. These could very easily be some of the biggest reductions we’ve ever seen on PS4 bundles now that the PS5 is looming ahead.
It looks like the big PS4 Black Friday bundle is going to be this 1TB PS4 with God of War, The Last of Us Remastered and Horizon Zero Dawn: Complete Edition for $199.99. That’s an incredibly good price for a brand new console and three of the best PS4 games currently available.
Meanwhile, Black Friday is also one of the best chances to get a great deal on a PS4 Pro if you’ve been waiting to grab a console or upgrade from your older box. We’re seeing many being sold for around $400 with a game included, so it’s not too crazy to suggest a drop to at least $350 or lower during Black Friday. No sign of the PS4 Pro in any leaked ads so far, though.
We were already very interested to see what would happen with PSVR over Black Friday with the future of that technology up in the air as the PS5 draws nearer. We had a prediction that you’d be able to find a £100/$100 on most PSVR bundles – and that’s proven to be true in the Best Buy Black Friday ad. That’s got to be a tempting price to take yourself to another world entirely.
And what about games? Well, the big end of year releases will most likely stick around their usual prices as they will have only been out for a few weeks. We will be getting a small discount on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare down to $40 as that’ll be a huge sales driver. Elsewhere, PS4 exclusive Days Gone will be just $20, while loads of PS Hits releases will be just $10.
Look back a few months at some of the year’s earlier top titles as well and that’s where the real bargains could be. Borderlands 3, Control, Madden 20 and FIFA 20 could all go for bargain prices – some more significant than others depending on how well they’ve sold already. Don’t fret, you’ll find all the best PS4 Black Friday game deals right here.
What were the best PS4 Black Friday deals last year?
The hot PS4 Black Friday deal from last year was a PS4 Pro with Spider-Man for $349.99. Now that the more powerful console is selling at $399.99 with a game included as standard we should expect to see something ever cheaper in 2019. In the UK, a standard PS4 console with a single game was around £220, so it wouldn’t be too wild if a drop below £200 was coming.
Other top Black Friday offers for PS4 in 2019 were some strong game discounts across a number of the year’s latest sports sims. They usually see a small price drop during that time of year as the season reaches its midway point. Elsewhere, titles from the PS Hits range saw even further reductions below their already very competitive price points.
In the realm of accessories, it was controllers that stood out as one of the biggest bargains. These always seem far too expensive at full price so a few pennies off is definitely much appreciated – and we expect it to be repeated again this year.
That about covers all the more interesting PS4 Black Friday deals from the past!
What date is Black Friday in 2019?
This year, Black Friday will be on 29th November. That isn’t when everything happens, though.

With Cyber Monday following immediately after, as well, there are many opportunities to find some terrific offers
