The best PSVR deals this Black Friday 2018
Not as hot a prospect this year as it was last year, the PSVR is still pretty pricey.

PSVR kits have remained at a steady price all year, but Black Friday deals have already dropped prices down beneath £200. As the deals spike closer to big day, we've already noticed a steep decline in PS4 VR kits, peripherals and individual game prices.

Best Black Friday PS4 deals last year
Black Friday 2017 kicked off a little earlier than it has done in previous years, as eager retailers seemingly couldn't keep their deals quiet long enough to make it to the main event itself. Instead, the vast majority of UK-based stores launched their various Black Friday sale ranges a full week ahead of the day itself. In the US, similar things happened, particularly at Amazon.
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.
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.
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 2018 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.
What happens after Black Friday? Best Cyber Monday 2018 deals
The fun doesn't stop on Black Friday, though. After a weekend filled with deals, Cyber Monday takes place on November 27th. 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.
We'll be here all weekend and into next week, collecting the very best PS4 Black Friday 2018 deals, so be sure to bookmark this page and come back for the most up to date deals.
