If you’re not new Blacker Friday then you already know that we’ve been tracking Black Friday deals on PS4, Xbox One S and X, Switch and PlayStation VR for a number of years now. But with the imminent launch of PlayStation 5 coming anytime now, we are now adding PS5 to our list of deals that we are tracking over Black Friday. So what can you expect this year?
Our PS5 Black Friday 2020 Sale Predictions
With PS5 being the most popular new gaming console to launch in 2020 and with more people isolating at home this year due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, you’ll be lucky to even be able to get your hands on a PS5 console before Christmas. We’re not expecting to see any sales or discounts offered at all in 2020. The earliest that we’ll see the first bundle offers to appear on PlayStation 5 is likely to be in March—April of 2021. That would follow a similar timeframe to when PS4 and Xbox One X were launched a few years ago.
So now what? You have a decision to either what until next year for a better deal or pick up the console this year at full price. That’s if you’re lucky enough to find it in stock anywhere. At the same time, if you don’t have a PS4 then you can expect to see the lowest prices we’ve ever seen coming over Thanksgiving weekend. Playstation 4 bundles were priced for as low as $199.99 last year so another $20 to $40 less than that is possible.
As always, you can count on us to be the first ones to bring you all the Black Friday deals on PS5 if and when they happen. Be sure to join our newsletter to stay up to date on all the latest developments.
