Should you buy a PS5 on Black Friday?

The PS5 turned three years old this month (Nov. 12), and we have now firmly left the PS4 generation behind. While a few games will still launch on Sony’s last-gen console, the majority of new releases are heading exclusively to current hardware. That’s why now is the ideal time to upgrade to the PS5. If you want to ensure you’ve got the gaming gear required to play the biggest games going forward, you'll need a PS5. 

Now is also a great time to purchase a PS5 as a sizeable pool of exclusive games has built up over the past few years. While some of the biggest PS5 titles like God of War Ragnarök and Horizon Forbidden West were also released on the PS4, top-tier games such as Returnal, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 cannot be played anywhere else.

If you’re considering purchasing a PS5 this holiday, you’ve also timed it well as Sony released the PS5 Slim this month. This refreshed console plays all the same games as the regular PS5 but is 30% slimmer. This is a much-appreciated improvement as the launch unit is an ugly behemoth (mine barely fits in my entertainment center). 

PS5 vs PS5 Slim

The PS5 Slim is pretty much exactly what it sounds like. It’s a slimmed-down version of the PS5. There are no hardware improvements, and there are no games that play exclusively on the PS5 Slim and not the regular PS5. The differences are purely in its aesthetic design, storage space, supplied accessories and overall size.

Sony notes that the PS5 Slim is 30% slimmer than its launch-day counterpart, as well as being 24% lighter (compared to the PS5 Disc model). It also sports a detachable disc drive, which can be purchased separately for $80. This means that even if you purchase a PS5 Slim Digital Edition you can add a disc drive if you decide you'd like to play physical Blu-ray discs on your console at a later date.    

The other major difference is that the PS5 Slim comes with a 1TB SSD hard drive whereas the base PS5 offers only 825GB. This might sound like merely a minor bump in storage space, but when you factor in that many modern releases demand north of 100GBs to fully install, the extra hard drive capacity comes in handy. 

Those wishing to display their console upright should note that PS5 Slim doesn’t come with a vertical stand. Instead, you’ll have to purchase one separately for $29. The PS5 Slim does come with a horizontal stand, but the multi-functional stand that shipped with the launch PS5 has been removed. 

What PS5 deals do we expect on Black Friday?

For around two years post-launch just finding the PS5 in stock at its regular list price was considered a bargain. PS5 restock tracking became a full-time career for some, and the prospect of any form of console discount was remote, to say the least. However, over the past 12 months supply has finally caught up with demand, and Sony is starting to roll out savings on the PS5 console.

The biggest savings we’ve seen on the PS5 to date have come in the U.K. where the console has been sliced £80 off this month ahead of the Black Friday sales. And while there’s been no indication yet that this deal will make its way to the States, we’re hoping that we could see something similar around Thanksgiving. But what we’re seeing right now is savings on PS5 bundles dropping the cost of a console and a game down to just $499. 

While we can’t guarantee the PS5 console will get a money-off deal in the U.S. we can say for sure that loads of the best PS5 games will be cheaper than ever. Plus, controllers, SSDs and essential accessories will also be reduced. The PlayStation Store is also running its own Black Friday sale that is now live and includes discounts on dozens of the year’s biggest titles including Resident Evil 4 and Hogwarts Legacy
