But since Black Friday is over, we're now collecting all the best deals over on our Black Friday Cyber Monday PS5 deals page

You'll definitely want to head there, but just in case you don't, there's a handful of the best remaining Black Friday deals below:

Cyber Monday PS5 highlights

PS5 console with Spider-Man 2 | AU$924.90AU$679 at  JB Hi-Fi

PS5 console with Spider-Man 2 | AU$924.90 AU$679 at  JB Hi-Fi
This is a gnarly saving on the Spider-Man 2 PS5 bundle, but you'll need to add both the PS5 and Spider-Man 2 to your cart for it to work, then the right price will show at checkout. This should not be confused with the pre-launch Spider-Man 2 bundle with the fancy design, which is long sold out. This is by far the best way to buy a PS5 at present. Coming in at AU$121 below the RRP of a standalone PS5, this is def worth snapping up if you're in the market. 

Pulse 3D Headset | AU$159.95AU$114 at Amazon and JB Hi-Fi

Pulse 3D Headset | AU$159.95 AU$114 at Amazon and JB Hi-Fi
A nice AU$45 off Sony's first-party PS5 headset, a wireless affair that is marketed as making the most of the PS5's 3D audio capabilities. This deal is available from both Amazon and JB Hi-Fi, with the only caveat that currently Amazon is only offering the Midnight Black colour variant at a discount at present. 


Big savings on first-party PS5 games including Gran Turismo, God of War and more
If you bought a PlayStation, chances are you bought it because you're keen to play its exclusives. Good news, then: a bunch of 'em are on sale this Black Friday:

Demon's Souls | AU$124.95 AU$56.95
God of War: Ragnarok Standard Edition | AU$124.95 AU$69.95
Gran Turismo 7 Standard Edition | AU$124.95 AU$59.95
Horizon Forbidden West | AU$124.95 AU$58.95

Returnal | AU$124.95 AU$57
Sackboy: A Big Adventure | AU$109.95 AU$44.95
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection | AU$124.95 AU$29

Elden Ring |AU$109.95AU$59 at Amazon

Elden Ring | AU$109.95 AU$59 at Amazon
Elden Ring hasn't received many drastic price cuts, though Amazon generally sells it for around the AU$70 mark. So this is a welcome reduction for a game that is normally too good for discounts. It's a brilliant place to start if you want to dive into FromSoftware's brilliant RPG catalogue, with a scale that still baffles nearly two years since launch. 

Diablo IV |AU$109.95AU$59 at Amazon

Diablo IV | AU$109.95 AU$59 at Amazon
This fourth instalment in Blizzard's beloved ARPG series is a bit of a steal at 46% off. Not only is the core game huge, but its subject to many ongoing patches and changes, making for a game that you could feasibly play forever. At least, that's what Blizzard hopes you will do. 

Corsair MP600 Pro LPX 2TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD with heatsinkAU$254 AU$189 at Amazon

Corsair MP600 Pro LPX 2TB NVMe PCIe 4.0 SSD with heatsink | AU$254 AU$189 at Amazon  

Enjoy AU$65 off this Corsair NVMe, which factors into our list of the best PS5 SSD due to its exceptional heatsink and performance. As this generation unfolds, 2TB is feeling less like a luxury and more like a necessity, so if you want some serious storage this is a great time to make the move.
