What PS4 Black Friday deals will there be in 2021? That could be a hard question to answer, considering Sony's last-gen console has now been superseded by the PS5. The PlayStation 4 is still out there available to buy, though, so it could be a good option for those looking to get into gaming at a discount. Any offers we come across, you'll find right here!
Until we reach November, though, you can find any current PS4 deals below - along with our wildest guesses about what might be available over Black Friday.
For those after the more modern console, we'll also be keeping an eye on all the PS5 Black Friday bargains to crop up later in 2021. That is if there's any PS5 stock by the end of the year. Fingers crossed!

PS4 Black Friday console deals
For the year that saw the introduction of the PS5, there was a surprising lack of standout offers on the PS4 and PS4 Pro last Black Friday. We may have been hopeful, but we were expecting some aggressive discounts as an attempt to clear old stock as the next-gen consoles were upon us. Especially to go with all the 4K TV Black Friday offers that were out in the wild.
The state of the world may have played a factor, but it was still very underwhelming if you wanted to snap up a PS4 Black Friday bargain. Those looking for an offer on the PS5 over Black Friday were equally disappointed, too, as a lack of inventory meant what little consoles there were got snapped up in a matter of minutes.
PS4 Black Friday game deals
While console bundles suffered, last Black Friday saw some terrific deals for many PS4 exclusives across the board. We were blessed with some especially low prices on The Last of Us Part 2, Ghost of Tsushima and Days Gone - to name just a few.
The PSVR offers were enticing, too. Black Friday was absolutely the right time to check out Sony's attempt to capitalise on our fascination with the virtual world. You could get both the Starter Kit and Mega Pack at massively reduced prices - and stock truly flew. Congrats if you managed to grab one quick enough to try some of the best VR games you can buy.
We'll be closely following the PSVR Black Friday offers this year as we now know that new PSVR tech is coming - plus a pile of new VR-enabled games.
PS4 Black Friday accessory deals
We'll once again be on the lookout for controllers, headsets and external storage as part of our PS4 Black Friday accessory deals. For those of you looking to bring your last-gen PS4 games to PS5, a PS4 external hard drive is worth a purchase while they're cheap - or if you just want more room for your current console!
Black Friday PS Plus deals
Of course, there was the usual 25 per cent off PS Plus subscriptions through the PlayStation Store for Black Friday. This seems to be the regular deal rolled out by Sony year-in-year-out. Other retailers, such as ShopTo, offered a slightly better discount than this. You can almost guarantee a repeat of the same or similar offers in 2021. It'll be a cheaper way to get access to all those PS Plus games and the PS Plus Collection on PS5.
When will the PS4 Black Friday deals start?
Black Friday 2021 falls on 26th November. As we've seen over the last few years, though, the deals will start a good while before that.
You can usually expect retailers to get their Black Friday sales events underway from early November, though the best deals are usually saved for the week surrounding Black Friday itself.
If you're going to make a purchase, we'd suggest at least waiting until 19th November before you pull the trigger. There may be the odd flash deal that crops up nearer to Black Friday, but that week-long period is usually when all the best bargains are live. For those with the most patience, you could also hold off until Cyber Monday as some additional deals do sometimes become available. Usually, though, it's a refresh or rehash of the highlights we've seen in the weeks just gone!
That about covers everything we know right now. Be sure to bookmark this page and check-in later this year as the PS4 Black Friday offers drop. You can also follow Jelly Deals for bargains on games, tech and more throughout the year.
