Black Friday: Get the latest updates on PS5 stock, games, and accessories

It's that time of year when we start getting ready for the Black Friday PS5 deals, and you certainly shouldn't be waiting until the day itself if you haven't bagged Sony's new console yet. Since launch last November, the PS5 has never lasted more than a few minutes when it comes into stock, and we expect the feeding frenzy to be no different well into next year.

We're here to help point you in the right direction of the stores most likely to get the PS5 in next. There won't be any discounts on the console, though, and Black Friday PS5 bundles that appear will likely feature a range of items all added at full price because people will pay it. Sad, but true. So, if you see a sensibly priced PS5 at any moment from now, just bag it while you can.

It's not all bad news, as the genuine stars of the Black Friday PS5 deals will be found on some of the very best PS5 headsets, PS5 games, some of the various colors of PS5 controllers, and a bunch of other neat accessories. We think storage is going to be big this year, too, so be sure to take a look at our dedicated Black Friday PS5 SSD deals page for the latest discounts on those impressive internal storage upgrades, as we think you'll be able to make a solid saving. If you're still shopping for a PS5, though...

Where to find the best Black Friday PS5 deals

We really expect things to get going sooner rather than later, and we'll be rounding up some of our favorite deals right here on this page. The stores below are all solid shouts if you'd like to check out what's happening right now.

When do the Black Friday PS5 deals begin?

Many Black Friday PS5 deals will begin on November 26, but there's a change in the air right now. Over the years, we've seen many retailers go even earlier than Black Friday itself. With all the shipping and production issues happening right now, buyers are being advised to start their Christmas shopping sooner rather than later.

The Monday before Black Friday is often a time when retailers try and make a break for it and grab your attention, so expect a lot of action on that day for sure. We've seen the likes of Best Buy launch a few early Black Friday sales recently. Also, look out for Black Friday guarantee-type messaging on some retailer deals as this promises their prices won't go lower on Black Friday.

Black Friday PS5 deals: Internal SSD

Now that the PS5's internal SSD expansion bay has been unlocked by Sony, you'll be able to increase the internal storage capacity. This is better than using external storage solutions, as you'll be able to run PS5 titles directly from these SSDs. They're pretty expensive, so any discount at all is much appreciated. Be wary, though, as some do not come with a heatsink attached. You'll need to add one yourself (a simple two-minute task). One like this from Amazon is a reliable option — it's the one I'm using right now.

Black Friday PS5 deals: Headsets

Black Fridayalways comes up with the goods for gaming headsets, and you stand to save a lot of money on some of the best models. We'll keep you updated with some of our absolute favorites, but while we wait, be sure to keep an eye on our price comparison widget below, which automatically updates with the latest prices on some of the top-rated audio beauties.

Black Friday PS5 deals: Controllers

We'd hoped for some neat third-party PS5 controllers to be released this year, but it simply hasn't happened. Many last-gen third-party picks will work on PS5, but only for playing PS4 games. Sony did release two new colors of the official DualSense PS5 controllers, though, in Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. You'll find today's cheapest prices directly below.

Black Friday PS5 deals: TV

Prices have been coming down nicely in recent weeks on some truly jaw-dropping TVs. If you're after that full next-gen experience, then our price comparison chart below highlights some of the best 120Hz HDMI 2.1 TVs below. We think the slightly older (but still epic) LG OLED CX series is the one to watch for the biggest price drops. However, the 2021 upgrade, the LG C1, has had some tempting offers too lately. Stay tuned, and we'll highlight more discounts in detail throughout the busy shopping season.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
