Black Friday 2017 is on the horizon. With it, inevitably, will come hundreds of discounts, bundles, special offers and bargains on a wide array of tech and games, among many other things. If one of the things you're looking to keep an eye out for is a bargain deal on a PS4 console, a PS4 Pro console or some shiny new PS4 games, you're in the right place.
Black Friday, for those unaware, is the notorious shopping extravaganza that involves retailers from across the world offering big discounts on tech, electronics, games, consoles and more. This year, Black Friday takes place on Friday, November 24th, 2017. For all of our other Black Friday coverage, you can check out our Black Friday deals hub, which features the best deals on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and more.
The fun doesn't stop on Black Friday, though. After a weekend filled with deals, Cyber Monday takes place on November 27th, 2017. Despite its cringe-worthy name, you can think of Cyber Monday as a second chance for a lot of online-based retailers to discount a wide variety of their products, most of which will not have been discounted during Black Friday itself. It's anything but a one-day affair, though - you can expect another week's worth of deals.

Judging by previous Black Friday experiences, Sony has a tendency to make some good deals with retailers that have resulted in nice discounts on PS4 hardware as well as first-party games at bargain prices. With Uncharted 4 now being a year and a half old and a follow-up game in Uncharted: Lost Legacy having been released now, it would be a good bet that we'd be seeing one or both of those games at bargain basement prices.
Update 17th November: Terrifyingly, Black Friday is now mere days away and the deals have started appearing in earnest from a variety of websites. The Evil Within 2 has seen a significant discount as well as Yakuza Zero, Wolfenstein 2, a PS4 Pro bargain bundle and even some PS4 Slim console bundles. You'll find all these and more below.
Finding the best PS4 Black Friday bundle
Last year, Black Friday gave us PS4 Slim consoles from as little as £189 with games thrown in for free, so expect to see that price slip down a little further (perhaps as low as £160 in some cases), along with a litany of first and third party games thrown in. In addition to that, with the combination of the PS4 Pro now being a year old and the release of Microsoft's competing high-end console in the Xbox One X, it's a fairly safe bet that we'll be seeing some great value bundles involving the PS4 Pro this year.
PS4 Accessories to look out for
Also worth keeping an eye out for - the PlayStation VR headset. Sony recently announced that a newer model of this was headed to shelves in the coming months, so look for retailers to slash the price of the original version in order to shift stock around Black Friday 2017. The newer version of the headset adds HDR passthrough and integrated headphones to the headset, so if neither of those is essential to you, you may just be able to pick up an absolute steal on an original model PS VR headset. DualShock 4 controllers have seen consistent discounts over the years, so expect all colours of that to see discounts to bring the cost down to £30 or below.
In terms of game deals, last year's biggest bargains were found in copies of Doom, Titanfall, Destiny: The Collection and Overwatch, along with Watch Dogs 2 seeing a price cut mere weeks after its launch. Needless to say, a few of these sold out within minutes, so if you have a particular game that you're waiting for Black Friday before purchasing, you may want to keep a close eye on these deals as and when they come to make sure you don't miss out.
For now, though, we've had a look at the very best deals that you can get your hands on prior to Black Friday 2017 actually kicking off, so if you've been looking around for the best deal, you may want to check these out for the time being.
