When do the Black Friday PS5 deals begin?

Given the big day's habit of being a precise day - the Friday after Thanksgiving - we know that the Black Friday PS5 deals will properly kick off on Friday, November 25, 2022. This is the day many retailers still go biggest on so expect many of the best offers to sell out quickly. 

However, we've all seen this movie before: every year Black Friday deals drop earlier and earlier and it'll be wise to pay close attention to those things you have your eye on from mid-October. 

With Black Friday itself now a multiple-day/week-long affair, the extended deals period around it also extends - so be alert and ready to strike!

Black Friday PS5 deals 2022 - what do we expect

Basically: a lot. But I'll try and keep this bit brief. Naturally, the main question everyone is asking this year is 'will the consoles get a price cut or get the deal treatment'. Officially? Almost certainly not - Sony only just raised the price of the console in a bunch of regions (not North America) so it's unlikely we'll see that rolled back anytime soon. However, this might not stop retailers from throwing together their own bundles and reducing the price overall so this would absolutely be worth keeping an eye on.

However, where we should be expectant, genuinely, is in first-party PS5 games. For example, Ratchet and Clank saw its first major price drop in the PS5 Black  Friday deals last year dropping from $69.99 to $49.99 - a veritable bargain considering it's a first-party game. The same was true for Ghost of Tsushima Director's Cut on PS5, and also Death Stranding Director's Cut which also dropped to brand-new lowest-ever prices. We're expecting those to be matched at but, given we're a whole year on from them, we're hoping for lower prices. 

In addition to the games, there are usually some discounts on peripherals. The official Pulse 3D headset had a solid if unspectacular $10 off las year to take it to $89 but it's often those third-party peripherals that will see the biggest cuts. And one we heartily recommend considering this year more than ever is a PS5 SSD. The Samsung 980 PRO for example with heatsink was brand-new last year for the sales (releasing in October 2021) but got a chunky $50 discount a few weeks later as part of the Black Friday PS5 deals. The WD BLACK SN850 heatsink SSD saw around $100 drop off its MSRP too. In the external hard drive market, we'd be looking at WD's new P40 SSD. This is similar to the P50 - one of our favourites - which has seen big price cuts every sales season. It had about $60 taken off last year and we expect more on this one, if there's stock to shift, given the arrival of the P40.

And if you're after one of the latest perfect-for-PS5 TVs then keep an eye on this year's Sony A95K which has already seen up to $600 drop off its price. This reduction came in for October's Prime Day event, and we expect it to stay - and maybe even be beaten...

Should you wait to buy PS5 gear in the Black Friday PS5 deals?

The answer to this question is a resounding 'yes'. Tempting as it may be if you see a reduction on something you've been tracking, the reality is that the Black Friday PS5 deals will probably see that price cut further. And now we're basically there, so be ready to take advantage of that.

As we've highlighted on this page, the Black Friday PS5 deals will be far-reaching so be it a game, headset, or SSD that you've been wanting, the big sales period is the best time to wait for and strike in. And with retailers actually starting their 'official' Black Friday sales earlier than the big day itself, you might not have to wait as long as you think. But definitely wait - that has to be the play now.

What price will the PS5 be on Black Friday?

We really don't think the PS5 itself will get any kind of price cut this winter. The demand is still way too high and the supply is only just beginning to become consistent and keep up - it still isn't in some parts of the world still, as I'm sure many folks are aware. 

That means we'll see it stay at $499.99 for the disc console, and $399.99 for the digital edition in the USA, while it'll stay at the current £479.99 for the disc drive machine, and £399.99 for the digital console in the UK.

Do not expect this to change or there to be 'deals' on the console's price. However, turn your attention to bundles, accessories and peripherals, and games. This is where you can make some great savings and reduce your overall PS5 cost this winter.
