Update: The best Cyber Monday PS5 deals are live! Check them out. 

The PS5 is here, as are a ton of Black Friday deals that are lasting through the weekend. With these sales, you can save on games and accessories for the high-demand, low-supply console and be happily gaming into 2021. Just be sure to act fast: Black Friday's officially come to a close, but there are still some deals hanging on. Plus, plenty of Cyber Monday deals are starting early!

Sony's next-gen system is still less than a month old, so odds are we're not going to see discounts on the PS5 itself. At best, there's a chance we'll see some worthwhile PS5 bundles crop up that include games and accessories at an overall discounted price. It's the start of a new generation, after all. It's the perfect time for extra controllers, PlayStation Plus subscriptions and games to be sold together.

If you're one of the many people still trying to buy a PS5, you may be in luck: the weekend between Black Friday and leading up to and including Cyber Monday is also a key time to try to buy the console itself. Retailers such as Walmart and GameStop will be offering additional stock now that initial supplies have sold out.

Here's what to expect from PS5 deals over the weekend and on Cyber Monday, as well as a look at the best sales we've spotted so far.

Black Friday PS5 deals: What to expect

The PS5 has been released in both the U.S. and U.K... Sony's latest console costs $499 for the standard model, and $399 for the disc-less PS5 Digital Edition. We don't expect either of these models to be on sale for Black Friday — it's hard enough to even find a PS5 in stock as it is. 

Best Buy is selling the PS5 in "limited quantities" online on Black Friday (Nov. 27), so you'll want to keep Best Buy's PS5 page bookmarked. Walmart is selling the PS5 as part of its Black Friday deals, which kicked off Nov. 25. The first wave is out of stock, but the page promises more are on the way. 

GameStop is also selling the PS5 on Black Friday, but you'll have to try your luck in-person at a store (stores opened at 7 a.m. local time on Nov. 27). Also, check out our where to buy PS5 guide for the latest updates on availability. 

We wouldn't be surprised to see certain retailers offer their own custom PS5 bundles that get you a bunch of games and accessories out of the gate. GameStop has already done this, with a $769 bundle that gave you an extra controller, copies of Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon's Souls and a year of PlayStation Plus. (The deal seems to have disappeared along with most of the PS5 inventory.) With that in mind, it's very possible that similar bundles will return during the busy shopping season.

It's also worth noting that the PS5 will work with almost all PS4 games and accessories, many of which will see big discounts for Black Friday season. We've already seen new titles such as Madden NFL 21 and Assassin's Creed Valhalla available for $10 to $30 off, and many of those games include free upgrades to their PS5 versions. And with all of these savings you may be able to afford an upgrade to a 4K TV so your PS5 games look pristine so check out the best Black Friday TV deals for all the bargains.
