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.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

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

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Elon Musk sends yet another notice trying to terminate the Twitter deal

Kristen Radtke / The Verge; Getty Images Elon Musk has sent a third letter to Twitter attempting to terminate his $44 billion acquisition of the company . Musk’s legal team cited Twitter’s multimillion dollar severance payment to former security chief and whistleblower Peiter Zatko as a violation of the merger agreement and a reason to end the deal. The letter, dated September 9th, was sent to Twitter’s chief legal officer Vijaya Gadde, and was included in a filing Twitter made with the SEC on Friday (which you can read at the bottom of this article). Last month, Zatko made headlines by accusing Twitter of misleading investors about the number of bots on the service, failing to delete users’ data, and having poor security practices, among other things. Musk jumped on the accusations, citing them in his second termination letter and subpoenaing Zatko to testify in the lawsuit. Zatko was set to be deposed on Friday. Elon Musk sent his first letter of termination in July , say
