In just two week's time we will have hit November that most ominous of yearly retail events will be right around the corner. That means it's time to take an early look at some of the early PS4 Black Friday deals in 2019. As we've seen countless times before, this shopping behemoth usually barrages us with bargains across the original PS4, the PS4 Pro, games, PSVR, accessories and much more. With the PS5 confirmed for late 2020, too, this could be you're last big opportunity to get a PS4 Black Friday deal at a considerable discount ahead of the new console.
It's relatively quiet right now but we're still taking a look at some of the PS4 Black Friday deals already available - even at this extremely early stage! While here, we're also putting our thinking caps on to bring you our best predictions for what PS4 offers we expect to see this Black Friday and give you a quick reminder of what was on sale last year. That should give you a good idea of what to look out for in the months ahead and what the genuine bargains are on Black Friday itself.

When is Black Friday 2019?
Black Friday falls on 29th November in 2019. As any veterans of the sales event will know, though, the bargains tend to be live for the weeks surrounding it now, too. That means you can usually find yourself an extra saving or two in the run up to Black Friday or in the days after. Especially now that Cyber Monday has become an even bigger part of it!
What PS4 Black Friday deals are we expecting in 2019?
Now that we definitely know for sure that the PS5 is coming in 2020, this has the potential to be a very good year if you're looking to pick up a PS4 during Black Friday. With the new console on the horizon, there's a chance many retailers will be looking to shift their current stock while they can. With that in mind, expect some of the biggest discounts we've ever seen on PS4 consoles and bundles.
That makes it the best opportunity to grab yourself a PS4 Pro. Sony's more powerful console is likely to see some of its most significant price reductions, so you could net an absolute bargain.
Black Friday should be an ideal time if you're after a PSVR deal, too. It's unclear whether the technology will be able to function on the PS5, so expect some huge savings on the latest PSVR Mega Pack that was announced earlier this month. We could even see it drop to around the £200 mark, which would be a very tempting offer!
In terms of games, you usually don't see many of the big end-of-year releases at low prices - especially as many of them have only been out for a month or less. We'll obviously keep an eye on the likes of Death Stranding, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order in case a cheeky sale is put out there.
However, there's a reasonable chance that slightly older releases such as Borderlands 3, Control and FIFA 20 could go for much less than usual! We'll ensure that you'll be the first to know about any outstanding Black Friday PS4 deals right here.
Will the PS4 Pro be on offer?
Absolutely! Again, this is almost guaranteed with the PS5 due to come out at the end of next year. A PS4 Pro bundle with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is already £299.99 at Amazon UK, so that should give you an idea of the top-end price. That we've already hit the £300 range before Black Friday can only be a good sign. Will we go much lower than that for Black Friday? That would be just lovely, though it would be quite an ask to hit that figure. Anything less would be a nice surprise!
How about any PSVR Black Friday sales?
This seems all-but-guaranteed, too. There have been some excellent PSVR Black Friday deals in the past and we certainly expect some repeats in 2019. In the UK, Sony only just released a new PSVR Mega Pack for £300. This updated version contains VR Worlds, Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Skyrim VR, Everybody's Golf and Resident Evil 7. A drop to the £200 mark seems mightly ambitious but the previous PSVR Mega Pack has been that low in the past so consider it a strong possibility.
As for the PSVR Starter Pack? That'll be under £200 no problem. Of course, you don't get quite as much with it. For those looking to really kick off their trip into another world entirely the PSVR Mega Pack has a lot more to offer for a little extra cash. Either way you go, you're bound to save some considerable cash this Black Friday!
What were the best PS4 Black Friday deals last year?
We did extremely well with PS4 Black Friday deals last year. At the cheaper end of the scale, it was possible to get a PS4 500GB FIFA 19 bundle for just £219.99. Now, when we compare that to the bundle that launched with this year's release, you'll notice it launched for the same price. With that in mind, we could very easily see standard PS4 consoles and bundles slip to around or below the £200 mark. That's a considerable deal!
As for the PS Pro this Black Friday? Well, that's selling for a little over £300 on its own. It's not difficult to imagine it creeping just under that mark during Black Friday. When bundled with a game you should definitely expect to pay a little more. Again, though, with the PS5 confirmed for next year, there is a possibility the discounts could be higher to secure some last-minute sales.
Last year in the US, the best PS4 Black Friday bundle included a PS4 1TB and Spider-Man for $349.99. That was particularly exciting as the Insomniac web-slinging adventure had only just launched a couple of months prior. It became one of the most popular deals and sold out frequently. A range of bundles featuring Red Dead Redemption 2 also proved to be top picks.
Moving on to games, you could get yourself some of the biggest PS4 exclusives at some of their best prices throughout Black Friday last year. One of the biggest deals saw God of War drop to £20.99 - that's a price we've only seen beaten recently since the game joined the PS Hits lineup.
A few of the console's bigger games from across the year were also reduced, as well as the latest entries across many of gaming's most beloved long-running series. We're talking Assassin's Creed, Fallout and Call of Duty. We definitely expect to see more of that in Black Friday 2019.
That should be enough to get us started for now. As October rolls on and November looms ever closer we'll be doing everything we can to bring you all the best PS4 Black Friday deals. You can also keep track of all the best Switch Black Friday deals and Xbox Black Friday deals with us, too. Keep us bookmarked and be sure to come back to check out all the latest offers.
