PlayStation is preparing its annual Black Friday sale again as the gaming industry gears up for the holidays. This year, it promises huge discounts on games and high-end hardware. The sale begins on Friday, November 17 — a weeklong head start that lets you stock up on all your gaming needs for this winter.
The PlayStation Black Friday 2023 sales will feature some of the latest games and popular franchises from previous generations. This includes popular AAA releases like God of War Ragnarok and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. It will also feature a selection of indie hits, such as Hollow Knight, Weird West, and Undertale.
Besides games, the PlayStation Black Friday Sale 2023 will also include discounted PlayStation Plus subscriptions. Players can save up to 30% on their subscription plans. New members can purchase a 12-month PlayStation Plus Essential membership for only $49.99 while existing users can get up to 30% off a Premium or Deluxe subscription.
While the exact PlayStation Black Friday 2023 deals are yet to be revealed, it’s safe to assume they will include some of the platform’s best console bundles and offers. These deals will be aimed at attracting gamers who are interested in buying the new-gen console at a more affordable price.
The biggest PS5 console deals are the Spider-Man 2 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 slim bundles. These offer a console and a game for under $500, significantly cheaper than the regular price of the PS5 alone. There are also several offers on PS5 accessories, including controllers and headsets.
Another good option is to get a PS5 Digital Edition bundle. These consoles don’t have a disc drive but allow users to stream or download games directly from the PlayStation Network. They offer faster loading times, immersive experiences with haptic feedback and adaptive triggers, and a sleeker design than the standard PS5.
With the console’s supply shortage over, finding a good deal on a new PlayStation 5 in this year’s Black Friday sale should be more accessible. The PlayStation 5 is still a hot seller; despite its age, it remains one of the most powerful consoles in the world.
Sony India seems intent on exhausting its inventory of PS5 Cricket 24 Edition bundles released last month in anticipation of the ICC World Cup. As of yesterday, the console sold for more than its retail price at Currys and Amazon. But Very has beaten Amazon and Currys with a PS5 Cricket 24 Edition bundle priced at just under Rs 4,000 ($60). It comes with a free copy of this year’s top-selling PlayStation exclusive, Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, so it’s an excellent opportunity to pick up a new console with one of the season’s hottest titles. The deal will run until November 30. Considering the console’s popularity, it is unlikely to be available for much longer than this.
