The ultimate “Black Friday PS4 Deals” guide

On Black Friday 2018, you can expect there to be huge savings on the PS4. With various retailers set to offer their customers massive discounts, it does mean that you will be in the difficult position of trying to decide which bundle it is that you should be purchasing. However, you need to be aware that the best deals have a tendency to sell out fast, so preparing yourself well in advance is certainly going to be in your best interests.

But then, you also want to know how to do this preparation to begin with. So, we have put together a few pointers that should make life that bit easier.

1. Think carefully about what you want before Black Friday

As the best PS4 deals at the main retailers tend to sell out in a short period of time, it makes sense to think carefully about what exactly you want before it gets to the end of November and Black Friday. For this, you should check out the different stores and the various bundles that they have available at this point as this can be an indication of what could be reduced when these huge savings come into play.

2. Understand the bundles

The core PS4 will remain the same across the different bundles, but you want the best deal for your money. What you will find is that the various retailers will promote a range of bundles including an extra controller and several games. However, it is with the games that things can become more intricate.

Often, the bundles will be aimed at particular genres or age groups. For example, a bundle may only contain a game or two that is aimed at children under the age of 12. Another bundle will focus on sports lovers or those that love racing games.

The key is to be aware of these variations in advance and who already sells them at a great price. By being prepared, you can then act even faster and hopefully get the perfect bundle at an amazing price.

3. Do your research

Another key point is to do your research and be aware of any other add-ons that you may want to purchase after your initial PS4. This is also important as you may be able to take advantage of other deals for accessories along with additional games when buying your PS4. Once again, being aware of what you want in advance just makes life so much easier and increases the chances of you saving even more cash than ever before.

4. Compile a list of stores to check out

As there are a number of stores that stock the PS4, it will be worth your while compiling a list of names to check out before it gets to Black Friday. Of course, the special Black Friday deals that they offer will vary, so checking them all as quickly as possible is the best course of action to take.

Furthermore, even though Black Friday 2018 will be on November 23, it is not uncommon for large retailers to kick off their sales earlier in that week. By compiling this list, it will allow you to keep a close eye on everything so you will not then miss out on the perfect PS4 deal for you.

This plays a role as there are a number of PS4 bundles available that come with even more games, but they cost more cash. Of course, if you search hard enough, then you may very well be able to get an extra game or two with it still coming well within your budget.
