All the Cyber Monday PS5 deals should technically have disappeared overnight, but there are still bargains out there if you know where to find them. You'd certainly be forgiven for thinking that the sale might just never end, but we're confident we'll some day return to a world where things cost exactly their RRP, as bizarre as that may seem.
So if your wallet still has notes, take a look at all the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals that are still available in Australia:

PS5 game bargains
If you've got a PS5 but have baulked at the next-gen price hike, then your patience is now rewarded: PS5 games are going super cheap, though some of these current prices are slightly higher than they were during Black Friday proper:
Ratchet & Clank Rift Apart |
Sackboy A Big Adventure |
Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut |
The Nioh Collection |
Spider-Man Miles Morales |
Death Stranding Director's Cut |
Destruction AllStars |
F1 2021 for PS5and PS4 |
If F1 games have always seemed a bit intimidating, too sim-oriented, then 2021's instalment may change your mind. Sure, it retains depth, but its narrative-focused 'Braking Point' mode is like Uncharted for racing games. Easily the best racer on Sony consoles this year, and the price is currently right. Via Amazon.
HyperX Cloud II Pro wired gaming headset|
If you're after some good sound at a low price, AU$70 off this popular gaming headset should prove tempting. It's available in both gun metal and red colours, has digital noise cancelling, 7.1 virtual surround sound and comfy memory foam ear cups. Via Amazon.

When will Cyber Monday PS5 deals begin?
Cyber Monday officially kicks off on Monday, November 29. You'll want to be ready days before that though of course as there will be plenty of deals over Black Friday too.
Many retailers won't be able to resist going even earlier though, so it's well worth checking in on them throughout the week before Cyber Monday to see what's happening. Many deals will have limited stock, so deals that were intended to run through Cyber Monday, might be gone beforehand.
While many remaining Black Friday deals linger a few extra days, we do often see Cyber Monday ones get shut off at midnight as we head into the Tuesday, so it really does feel like the last chance with some items.
Should I wait until Cyber Monday to buy a PS5?
No way. If you see PS5 units in stock before Cyber Monday you should buy one immediately. The PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition have been incredibly hard to find all year, selling out in minutes (sometimes seconds) when they appear.
Of course, don't pay over the normal price unless you're getting bundled items. Some PS5 bundles are really expensive though as profit-margin chasing retailers add extra games, accessories, and bits of tat you would never usually buy in order to jack up the basket total.
You won't get stung with buyer's remorse by buying a PS5 before Cyber Monday as we're not expecting any discounts at all on the console or bundles on November 29. Standalone games and accessories on the other hand should get some great deals.
What will be the best products to get Cyber Monday PS5 deals?
While the Cyber Monday PS5 deals we envisage happening will throw an umbrella over everything PS5-shaped, we think some particular items will be very much worth your time and attention.
First off, while there hasn't been an amazing array of PS5 games to come out this year, what ones that have will likely get decent discounts, particularly in their physical disc form. It's always the best time of year to pick up any game from, well, the past year, on the cheap. Personally, I'm thinking of the likes of Outriders for me and my co-op buddies to finally jump in on, Ratch & Clank: Rift Apart as a 'proper' PS5 game, but then also hoping (dearly) on some more recent release like Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Back 4 Blood to come down in price. You can see some more inspiration on games below.
Headsets should be the first accessory to look into in terms of extra PS5 hardware and peripherals. A lot of the best headsets for PS5 came out with the console itself or soon after which means these items will be primed for a discount given time alone - but also given the fact that newer headsets have started to come along and be the newer, shinier models in the ps5 headset market.
Then, we'd also look to PS5 SSDs too - both internal and external. The former will be very hot stuff as this is the first deals season we'll have with the console's storage slot open and ready to use, from which you can store and play every game under the sun on PS4 and PS5. While externals are still great for those who are happy to have a lower-cost item that stores their PS5 games and can play their PS4 library.
Will there actually be PS5 stock on Cyber Monday?
The simple answer is that no one can be sure if the Cyber Monday PS5 deals are actually, definitely, going to include the elusive consoles themselves. At this stage, and given how the past year has gone, anyone who claims certainty on this is fooling you and themselves.
However, what we hope is that retailers have been eyeing up the Cyber Monday PS5 deals - and the preceding Black Friday PS5 deals - as rich ground during which to unleash some PS5 console stock. With everyone being in the mood for bagging the most sought-after gaming gear of the year, dropping some stock of the consoles themselves would be a big power play by any retailer. We live in hope.
