November is always a busy month for gaming, but this year is more than a tad different thanks to the arrival of the Xbox Series X and PS5. The new consoles are arriving just before the best time to shop for deals: Black Friday. While it’s unlikely we’ll see deals on major new exclusives like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Demon’s Souls, there will be plenty of great discounts on a bunch of games released throughout the year for PS4–all of which are compatible with PS5, with the exception of physical PS4 games on the PS5 Digital edition. Some of the biggest PS4 games also have free enhancements for PS5. Multiple retailers, including Best Buy and GameStop, have already released full Black Friday ads that feature a bevy of PlayStation games. We’re tracking all of the best PS4 and PS5 Black Friday game deals right here.
When will Black Friday PS5 game deals be available?
While some early Black Friday deals are already available, we haven’t seen very many game discounts just yet. However, that will change later this month when the big Black Friday deals kick off. Each retailer has a different schedule, which we’ve outlined below. We’re still waiting on the main Black Friday ads from Walmart and Target, and we expect Amazon to match the best prices found at other retailers.
