Best PS5 Video Game Black Friday Deals

We’re really getting into the serious period of Black Friday now, and that means it’s time for a serious deal on PS5 games and PS4 video games. We have some seriously great discounts here, so it’s hard to pick my favorites (but you can bet I’ll try).

The Elden Ring is probably my favorite deal here, down to just $35 at Walmart. Otherwise, Horizon Forbidden West is down to $35, Returnal is down to $29.99, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart is also $29.99. Honestly, all of these PlayStation game deals are top shelf for Black Friday and you can’t go wrong – happy shopping!

Up to $25 off DualSense controllers for Black Friday

That’s right, one of our favorite deals of the year is back with a bang, and that means you can save up to $25 on DualSense controllers for PS5 (and PC if you’re so inclined). Right now you can find the original DualSense for $49 on Amazon, or you can also check out the range of other colors available.

My favorite deal from the sale is definitely on the Gray Camo version (the John Cena music intensifies), as this is down from $74.99 to just $49.99 at several retailers now. I’ll leave all relevant links right below here, and Happy Black Friday to all PlayStation players!

This is currently only available directly through PlayStation, so you can access the deal here, or through your PS4 or PS5 console.

Best PlayStation SSD and Black Friday storage deals

You’re in luck PlayStation 5 owners, as these new Black Friday deals on SSDs are absolutely perfect for anyone who hasn’t expanded their PS5 storage yet. If you want my suggestion, go for the 2TB Samsung 980 Pro with heatsink which has dropped to just $189.99, otherwise the 1TB model for $119.99 is another good deal. It’s a real Black Friday deal, and you’ll pay just over $94 per GB. If you need some installation tips, check out our dedicated page here.

How to get a PS5 from Walmart during Black Friday

Walmart+ Membership

Walmart+ Membership

Sign up for a Walmart+ membership to get instant access to Walmart’s Black Friday deals, as well as access to PS5 and Xbox Series X.

If you’re hoping to buy a PS5 or PS5 bundle, your first announced opportunity will be Monday, November 21st at 12 PM ET/9 AM PT at Walmart. There’s a catch, though: the first round of Black Friday PS5s will only be available to Walmart+ members. That’s not to say it’s the only way to get your hands on a shiny new PlayStation 5 ahead of the Christmas season, but it’s the only way that’s been officially announced (so far).

Walmart+ is $12.98 for a single month, or $98 annually. There is a 30-day free trial, but unfortunately the free trial does not entitle you to early access for Black Friday PS5 drops. You must pay to gain access.

If you’d rather not spend the money on a month of Walmart+ to get access to the PlayStation 5 consoles on Monday, November 21st, you still have two more chances at Walmart, chances that do NOT require a membership.
