PlayStation 4, PS5 Black Friday Deals & Sales 2021
With Black Friday just around the corner, and some retailers already rolling out the discounts and deals, it's time to take a look at some of the best current and upcoming PlayStation 4 and PS5 sales.
As we hurtle headlong into the holiday season, there are plenty of games on offer already with more to come; there are also some hardware discounts too. Though, widespread PS5 system restock may be a bit too much to ask for even a year after launch. Most are still sold out.
A number of the biggest retailers, from Amazon and Gamestop to Target and Best Buy, are getting in on the action. Here are the best deals we know of so far. Use the links below to jump to each retailer's section.
Amazon Buy 2 Get 1 Free PS4, PS5 Games
This isn't exactly a Black Friday specific deal, but it's available in November, so we're counting it. Amazon will conceivably have more deals in the weeks ahead, and we'll add those here. But for now, this BOGO offer is almost too good to pass up.
This Buy 2 Get 1 sale is on a wide range of video games, including those for Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, and Series X. It includes many of 2021's Game of the Year contenders, as well as brand-new releases like Call of Duty Vanguard and Far Cry 6.
The best part is that you can mix and match, picking up any combination of PS4 and PS5 games, or any for Nintendo and Microsoft consoles. The offer also includes movies, music, books, and other items.
Head over to Amazon, and sift through the qualified games. To take advantage of the deal and redeem the offer, Amazon says that you'll need to add three items to your shopping cart and the savings "will automatically be applied at checkout, if eligible."
A few highlights for PS4 and PS5 include:
- Call of Duty Vanguard
- Assassin's Creed Valhalla
- Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy
- Riders Republic
- Immortals Fenyx Rising
- Resident Evil Village
- Watch Dogs Legion
- Demon's Souls
- It Takes Two
- Final Fantasy VII
- Hitman 3
- Far Cry 6
- Mortal Kombat 11
Adding extra incentive, some of these games are already discounted, some heavily. You could theoretically grab three brand-new games for the price of two, and still pick up a handful of others on the cheap.
PlayStation 4, PS5 Black Friday at Target
This is another sale that kind of, sort of falls under the Black Friday banner it seems. Like Amazon, Target also has a Buy 2 Get 1 free deal for video games. And since it's in November too, we're including it here. An ad scan mentions that these deals are valid through November 13, so act fast.
Also, just like Amazon, this is a Buy 2 Get 1 mix-and-match sale, including all gaming platforms, movies, books, and more. Here are some highlights:
- Madden 22
- The Last of Us 2
- Ghost of Tsushima
- Marvel's Spider-Man (GOTY)
- Marvel's Avengers
- Sackboy: A Big Adventure
- Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
- Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2
- Cyberpunk 2077
- Scarlet Nexus
- Days Gone
- Star Wars Squadrons
- Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon
There are plenty more on offer as well, as the sale for video games alone spans 29 pages with 24 entries per page. While some games cross over with Amazon's sale, such as Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Hitman 3, and It Takes Two, it appears that more recent titles, such as Far Cry 6, CoD: Vanguard, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart are not included in Target's sale.
Either way, you can check out what's on offer by heading over to Target's BOGO video games page. We'll update this page with more Target deals as they pop up through the month.
GameStop PS4, PS5 Deals
GameStop's official Black Friday ad doesn't appear to be in the wild just yet. That will probably be coming soon, though. Until then, there are a few PlayStation 4 and PS5 games on sale.
- Deathloop ($39.99)
- Far Cry 6 ($49.94)
- Riders Republic ($49.94)
- Madden 22 ($43.49)
- Tales of Arise ($49.99)
- Resident Evil Village ($45.99)
- MLB The Show 21 ($49.00)
- Scarlet Nexus ($39.49)
- Aliens: Fireteam Elite ($33.88)
- Yakuza 7: Like a Dragon ($49.99)
All told, there really aren't that many scintillating deals as of right now. While the sales over at Amazon and Target are almost too good to pass up, you could hold off picking anything up from GameStop right now. But don't let us tell you what to do with your money. Head over here to check it out.
Best Buy PS4, PlayStation 5 Sale
Best Buy has been offering Black Friday deals since mid-October, but it doesn't have much of anything for PlayStation 4 or PS5 right. Outside of discounts on Madden 22 ($49.99), FIFA 21 ($19.99), and Outriders ($19.99), we'll have to wait until closer to the traditional Black Friday day to see what else pops up.
Walmart PlayStation Deals
Walmart is another retailer that hasn't shared all of its plans for Black Friday 2021 deals on video games, which is slightly odd considering the retailer's holiday ad is already out. Regardless, Wal-Mart will be having an Early Access Black Friday sale for Walmart+ members starting on November 10 at 3 p.m. EST. Early Access is not available to Walmart+ trial members.
There's really no idea what to expect, though it's safe to assume some PlayStation games will be on sale. We're probably looking at deeper discounts on older games, with the shallower deals hitting recently-released titles like Back 4 Blood and Vanguard.
PlayStation Store Discounts
There are currently 590 items, games and DLC included, on sale as part of the PlayStation Store's November Savings extravaganza. Again, another set of discounts not carrying the Black Friday moniker but a set of discounts nonetheless. This one runs until November 19.
It's very likely a specific Black Friday event will hit the store in the coming weeks.
In the meantime, you can save on all kinds of digital games, including:
- Maneater ($23.99)
- Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice GOTY ($38.99)
- Final Fantasy XIV Complete Edition ($23.99)
- Subnautica ($16.49)
- Horizon: Zero Dawn ($9.99)
- Monster Hunter World: Iceborne ($20.99)
- Red Dead Redemption 2 Ultimate Edition ($34.99)
- Crysis Remastered ($14.99)
- Mafia III: Definitive Edition ($9.89)
- Control ($11.99)
The above doesn't even begin to scratch the 25 pages worth of games and DLC available. Check it out here. On top of that, there's also a Retro Sale and Games Under $15 Sale as well.
Those are the Black Friday and before Black Friday PlayStation deals and sales available right now. We're still waiting to see any movement on consoles, controllers, and most other hardware; DualShocks and DualSenses are still going for full price. Bookmark this page, as we'll be updating it throughout the month. Stay tuned.
