The Cyber Monday PS5 deals have officially taken over from their Black Friday brethren today; that being Monday, November 28, 2022. Not that you should expect them to be vastly different to what we saw on Black Friday, which itself kicked off extremely early. As we've seen in recent years, the Cyber Monday PS5 sales actually blend right in with the Black Friday listings that came before. This means that one that weekend in the middle of the two days there's a plethora of offerings to be snapped up, and then the Monday comes and we do it all over again with even more gusto.
So yes, what is listed below is for the most part, what we saw during Black Friday. No doubt some exceptions will arise throughout the day. The good news is that the PS5 God of War Ragnarok bundle is still discounted at AU$888 (usual RRP is AU$904.95), marking the first time Sony's console has ever had a discount. Sure, it's a bundle, but chances are you want to play Ragnarok anyway.
Without further ado:
Where will the best best Cyber Monday PS5 deals be?

Cyber Monday PS5 console deals in Australia
PlayStation 5 console with God of War Ragnarok |
AU$904 AU$888 at Amazon
This has been selling for AU$16 more of late, so AU$888 for a PS5 with the newly released God of War: Ragnarok is possibly the first ever real deal we've seen on a PS5 console, albeit a bundle. This puts the price of God of War itself at AU$88, which is AU$10 cheaper than buying it standalone at the moment. So not bad!
Not quite a Black Friday discount, but given the stock issues that the PS5 has experienced particularly in Australia since its launch in 2020, anytime we see PS5 stock not hundreds of dollars above retail price is worth a mention. Amazon list the standard console with disc drive at its RRP of AU$799.95, while the digital only console is also in stock at RRP (AU$649.95) via Amazon.
Cyber Monday PS5 game deals in Australia
The Last of Us Part 1 for PS5 |
AU$124.95 AU$78 at Amazon
Though it was down to AU$69 for Black Friday proper, there's still a decent 38% discount on one of the landmark PS5 exclusives of 2022. Remarkable, because first-party PS5 games tend to take a bit longer than this to get drastic discounts. This remake of the PS3-era classic may not add much that's new for returning fans, but if you've never dived in and have a PS5, geez, are you in for a treat.
Demon's Souls PS5 |
AU$124.95 AU$62.50 at Amazon
Elden Ring may be the 2022 zeitgeist, but every PS5 owner needs a copy of this lavish, next-gen remake of From Software's breakthrough action RPG. Not only does Bluepoint's remake look gorgeous, but it plays like a dream, evolving a cult classic into something fit for the pickier modern gamer. Full disclosure that this was down to AU$52.95 for Black Friday, but this is still a good saving.
Returnal for PS5 |
AU$124.95 AU$62.50 at Amazon
This roguelike is unforgiving but enthralling, demonstrating that Housemarque's command of the arcade shooter is pretty much unequalled. As far as PS5-exclusives go, this is a niche affair, so you'll be forgiven for holding out for a steep discount. Well, now's the time: there's still 50% off the RRP, just a few dollars shy of its Black Friday low last week.
Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart for PS5 |
AU$124.95 AU$57 at Amazon
This debut PS5 outing for everyone's favourite robot and
cat Lombax team won a perfect 5 / 5 score from our reviewer, so in our humble opinion, despite being down to AU$49 over Black Friday, it's still a must buy at this price of 54% off the usual RRP. It's a colourful, varied, hilarious and heart warming tale that still stands as one of the prettiest PS5 games to date.
Gran Turismo 7 for PS5 |
AU$124.95 AU$57 at Amazon
The new gold standard for console racing sims, Gran Turismo 7 is a generously nerdy affair for car enthusiasts, and a satisfying racer for the rest of us. This was deeply discounted down to AU$39 for BF (the best we've yet seen) but if you missed that you can still pick it up for a respectable AU$57. Given that the game has a lot more content now then it did at launch, it's still arguably more than worth it.
Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection for PS5 |
AU$79.95 AU$49 at Amazon
Bundling together Uncharted 4: A Thief's End with its substantial expansion The Lost Legacy, this collection stands as one of the must-play titles of the PS4 generation. This PS5 edition vastly improves the graphics and performance, while bringing one of Naughty Dog's most gripping adventure narratives to a new audience. Fair warning that this was just AU$28 for BF, so this price isn't as crash hot. Do with that what you will.
Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition for PS5 |
AU$124.95 AU$84.95 at Amazon
This package bundles the remastered version of Spider-Man for PS5, with the large Miles Morales expansion, meaning you're getting a fair amount of Spider-Man bang for your buck – though this is about AU$16 dearer than it was going for last week.
If you'd prefer to buy Miles Morales alone, that's going cheap too, for just AU$39 (down from AU$94.95). Sorry folks, the regular edition's now sold out.
Star Ocean: The Divine Force |
AU$99.95 AU$59 at Amazon
This sci-fi action JRPG has a gorgeously colourful art style, which—depending on your taste—is slightly undermined by its staunchly old school take on the genre. Of course, that will be a tick next to its name for some. This is one of those breezy and colourful games that is perfect for the holiday period.
Soul Hackers 2 |
AU$99.95 AU$68 from Amazon
This surprise sequel to a PlayStation 2 era cult classic doesn't do much to advance the JRPG, but it's stylish and fun all the same. Whether you're an adherent to the cult of Shin Megami Tensei, or just want a comforting cyberpunk adventure to while away the summer days, this is a respectable AU$32 discount on a game that only released months ago. Note, however, that this is AU$10 dearer than its Black Friday low of AU$57.45.
Saints Row: Day One Edition |
AU$99.95 AU$54 from Amazon
Let's not beat around the bush: this Saints Row series reboot ain't a masterpiece, but it's still a perfectly fun open world crime jaunt, one with a "beautiful open world", "diverse and sympathetic" cast and a typically great character creator. Consider it a good low stress action game for the forthcoming summer holiday season. 46% off the RRP is a solid deal, only six months after launch.
Dying Light 2: Stay Human |
AU$99.95 AU$39 at Amazon
Here's a chunky 61% off one of the most impressive zombie games on PS5 (there's already a lot of 'em). With support for cooperative play with up to four friends and two massive open worlds to explore, this is a lot of game for your money, constituting probably tens of thousands of slaughtered zombies.
Tiny Tina's Wonderlands: Next-Level Edition |
AU$49 AU$36 at Amazon
Just over AU$35 for a Borderlands game, albeit an offshoot, is a lot of game for very little dosh. This Next-Level edition includes the bonus Dragon Lord Pack, which is just a bunch of digital stuff basically, but the standard edition is sold out so this is currently your only option.
A Plague Tale: Requiem for PS5 |
AU$99.95 AU$74.99 at Amazon
This Black Friday is surprisingly generous when it comes to steep discounts on newly released games (see Sonic Frontiers above), with this one going for AU$35 on the day. That makes this AU$75 price frankly a bit harder to swallow, but that said this will likely be a game of the year contender, and is highly recommended for fans of Naughty Dog's canon.
NBA 2K23 for PS5 |
AU$119.95 AU$49 at Amazon
A whopping AU$71 off this year's NBA game, which scored a very respectable four stars in our review. We praised its Jordan Challenge and tasteful reverence for the sport, while taking issue with its unusually long loading times. Still, this is as good as basketball gets on PS5, not that there's much (or any) competition.
New Tales from the Borderlands |
AU$79.95 AU$34 at Amazon
For AU$40 off the normal price you can buy this narrative-driven offshoot of the Borderlands series, which follows on from the success of the original Telltale Games outing. Look: talking rather than shooting and looting maybe not be for all, but if you want it, this is half price.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla |
AU$99.95 AU$28 at Amazon
Assassin's Creed takes on vikings in this most-recent instalment in the enduring open world action series. If it's bang for buck you're after, this loot-centric RPG will keep you busy for many dozens of hours, and it looks gorgeous too: you've never seen London like this. This 72% discount is a little treat for everyone who has managed to resist Valhalla for so long.
Sniper Elite 5 |
AU$99.95 AU$68 at Amazon
The Sniper Elite series moves from strength to strength; it's pretty much one of the most underrated stealth action games going around. If Agent 47 was more of a shooty fellow, you're getting warm. Or, if someone made a World War 2 themed Splinter Cell, then you've very closely nailed it. Its price has increased from its BF low of AU$56.45, but we're unlikely to see that kind of discount this side of Christmas, so snap it up if you're keen.
Drastically discounted PlayStation 4 first-party gems | starting from AU$8
If you're still rocking a PS4, or want some classics of the last generation to play on your PS5, there are some brilliant discounts on first-party PS4 games. The definite highlight is The Last of Us Part II for AU$15, which is a few dollars shy of the cheapest we've seen it.
God of War |
God of War 3 Remastered | AU$24.95 AU$14.45
Ghost of Tsushima | AU$57.95 AU$20.95
Gran Turismo Sport |
Killzone: Shadow Fall |
The Last of Us Part Two | AU$54.95 AU$15
LittleBigPlanet 3 |
Ratchet & Clank |
Until Dawn |
Rainbow Six Extraction for PS5 |
AU$49.95 AU$19 at Amazon
Amazon has been selling this fascinating horror take on Rainbow Six Siege at AU$19 for a while now, so technically this discount isn't a Black Friday exclusive. Still, this is a great price for a meaty cooperative shooter that only released right at the beginning of 2022.
Cyber Monday TV deals in Australia
Sony 55-inch A80J Bravia XR OLED TV |
AU$2,495 AU$1,685 at Sony AU eBay
Using the code SNSNOV at checkout, you can save AU$710 on this fancy Sony OLED screen. It may not offer the kind of features found in Sony's top-of-the-line OLED offerings, the A80J offers good value when considering its nevertheless impressive display, dynamic audio and gaming compatibility features.
Samsung BU8000 85-inch LED UHD 4K TV (2022) |
AU$2,995 AU$1,888 at JB Hi-Fi (save AU$1,107)
Wowsers, how about a AU$1,107 discount on this snuggly thin Samsung? Has Google Assistant, Alexa voice control, though do be aware there's no VRR or HDMI 2.1. Still, it's a great option for gaming, so say reviewers, so it's worth investigation if you want a massive TV for under two grand.
LG QNED80 55-inch 4K Smart TV |
AU$1,995 AU$1,288 at JB Hi-Fi
A saving of AU$707 on this capable budget TV, which utilises "Quantum Dot screen technology" alongside LG's own NanoCell tech. If you want 4K, size, and a brilliant display without spending several (or many more) thousand dollars, it's well worth investigation. Other sizes are also available:
