Black Friday PS5 deals we're looking forward to in 2021

Will there really be any major PS5 deals this Black Friday?

A year after launch you would probably expect there to be a few PS5 Black Friday deals in 2021. That said, by the time November rolls around, we might still be dealing with some serious PS5 stock issues that'll make it difficult to get during the year's busiest sales period.

If there are any PS5 offers out there over Black Friday, though, you'll be able to find them right here. As always, we'll be scouring the net to bring you all the best bargains on consoles, games, accessories and more. Perhaps it'll be a good time for a price cut on the DualSense controller or Pulse 3D Wireless Headset?

We've all done this enough times now to know that there will absolutely be some discounted games and the usual PS Plus reduction, but our fingers are crossed for a great value PS5 bundle too.

Remember, you can also give Jelly Deals a follow on Twitter for regular deals posts throughout the week and more timely updates on where you can buy the PS5. Considering the time of year, we'd expect more retailers like Amazon, Argos and Very to get more consoles by then. You can keep an eye on our PS5 stock page for the latest news.

Wherever you go, stick with us and we'll do our best to get you the PS5 Black Friday offer you've always wanted.

Will there be PS5 Black Friday console deals?

Even though it's many months away, we'd expect PS5 stock to be very scarce over Black Friday. Demand for the new console is still very high while Sony is struggling to keep up with demand due to various production challenges and excessive scalping. Right now, your best bet is to check here to see where to buy a PS5.

With that in mind, your chances are finding a PS5 Black Friday deal is relatively low. There's isn't really any reason for Sony to discount its new console yet.

We have already seen a few PS5 bundles out in the wild, but these mostly include an extra controller or PS5 game such as Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Demon's Souls at full price.

If you are lucky enough to secure a PS5, you'll absolutely want to pair it with one of the many Black Friday 4K TV deals we're keeping an eye on this year to ensure you're getting the most out of your new console.

As with the console, finding discounted PS5 games is likely to be a bit of a challenge this Black Friday - though it's not completely out of the question.

In the months since the launch of the PS5, we've already seen some decent discounts on PS5 copies of Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion and more.

There are also many publishers that are offering free PS5 upgrades to existing PS4 games. For many, all you need to do is put your PS4 game disc into the PS5 and an upgraded digital version will be granted to your account for no cost. You can use that to make a saving on some older PS4 games.

Until Black Friday rolls around again, here are some of the best PS5 game deals available now:

PS5 Black Friday accessory deals

The full range of official PS5 accessories

Much like PS5 consoles, some accessories are also in hot demand. The DualSense Charging Station and Pulse 3D Headset have both been falling in and out of stock since launch but are starting to be more widely available. Our bargain-hunting pals at Jelly Deals have some PS5 controller charger alternatives should you need one right now.

Other most-wanted PS5 accessories include external hard drives to store PS4 games. With the limited capacity of the console's internal storage, that's best saved for PS5 games. By the time Black Friday rolls around, though, Sony may have released a list of compatible PS5 SSDs for Digital Foundry to choose from.

We'll be looking out for any new stock and potential offers on all these as we enter the busy sales period.

PlayStation Plus deals

The PS Plus logo

If you haven't already, one of the first things you'll want to do is get yourself after a PS5 console is a PlayStation Plus membership. Subscribers get a selection of PS Plus games as part of their membership, which has included the likes of Bugsnax, Destruction All-Stars and Control in the past.

Better yet, PS5 owners also have access to the PlayStation Plus Collection on PS5, offering a selection of 20 PS4 games. Some of these are undoubtedly last generation's best, such as Bloodborne, God of War and Persona 5.

Sony's gaming subscription service PS Now has also been discounted in previous Black Friday sales. This grants access to older titles via streaming or as local downloads, effectively acting as Sony's equivalent to Xbox Game Pass.

Expect discounts during Black Friday, but here are the best offers currently going for both services.
