So the PlayStation 5 has been out for nearly an entire year. According to VG247’s reviewer, it’s a console well-worth the money for that 'new generation thrill.' Its expanding library of exclusives - like Final Fantasy 7 Remake: Intergrade and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart - also add to the list of reasons to snag one this Black Friday.
Virtually no Black Friday discounts existed for the PlayStation 5 back in 2020, considering it was a newly released console with sold-out pre-orders and stock. Unfortunately, that still seems to be the case for today, as Sony predicted shortages would last until 2022. However, that doesn’t mean the company isn’t making an effort to advertise PS5 bundles, games, and accessories.
Here’s the current rundown on the best Friday PS5 deals.

Will the PS5 be available this Christmas?
It's difficult to say. The next-gen console has had widespread stock issues since its launch and has been going in and out of stock all year, so demand is extremely high and that isn't likely to change. You'll have to be quick to snag these once they become available and you can keep up to date by checking out our latest PS5 stock guide.
With the way the console has flown off the shelves already, we’re certain that Sony wants to get more out there as soon as possible. We'll keep you informed as/when this happens and if you want up-to-the-minute bargains, give Jelly Deals a follow on Twitter.
