Sony has already launched its annual Black Friday Sale 2023, offering discounts of up to 70 percent on critical titles on the PS4 and PS5. The promotion is live now across some first, but essentially third-party releases, including God of War Ragnarok, Horizon Forbidden West, Resident Evil 4, Assassin’s Creed: Mirage, and Hogwarts Legacy. The PlayStation Store is also discounting a few of our picks of the year, including Neowiz Games’ unique “souls like” Lies of P and the critically acclaimed God of War sequel.
The PlayStation Black Friday Sale is slated to end November 28 on the digital storefront. The deals are available at participating online retailers, though the best offers will likely be found on Amazon and Best Buy. The sale features a variety of bundles, consoles, and games, with the most notable deal being a PS5 Slim and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 bundle at $500.
Black Friday, set to begin on November 24 this year, is a major shopping event in the US that typically sees significant discounts on all sorts of merchandise. The discounts are usually available both in-store and online, with online retailers often launching the sale earlier. This year, we expect to see a few of the larger online retailers kick off their Black Friday sales by the end of October or early November.
This year, Sony is adhering to a long-standing practice of not discounting its exclusive titles on the PS4. That means 2023 will be one of the first years that God of War Ragnarok won’t be getting its fair share of deep discounts, but it should still be a standout among this Black Friday catalog.
While many of these deals may only last through November 28, watch the PlayStation Store for other noteworthy offers that could pop up in the next week or so. We’ve spotted a few promising ones so far, with the PlayStation Store currently offering a $70 discount on its own acclaimed PS4 exclusive Horizon Forbidden West.
Save PS15: The latest Assassin’s Creed title is another to receive a substantial discount this Black Friday, with Amazon dropping the price to a mere $35. The action-adventure game has garnered rave reviews for its stylized combat and gorgeous evocative world.
2022’s God of War Ragnarok is one of the more highly acclaimed games of the year, securing a perfect score in our review and countless other accolades along the way. This Black Friday, the Sony Santa Monica hit is available at an excellent discount at both Amazon and Best Buy.
