The PlayStation 5 is a great console with intuitive controller tech, great gameplay performance and a stunning design – and it’s finally becoming easier to pick one up following nearly two years of scrambling to get a hold of the next-gen console.
What’s even better is that stock seems to be readily available as retailers get involved in the biggest shopping event of the year, Black Friday. Though the big sale day isn’t technically until tomorrow, 25 November 2022, most retailers have already kicked off the Black Friday fun with bundles, discounts and more. It’s also likely that the sales will continue well into Cyber Monday on the following Monday, 28 November 2022.
But rather than scouring the web for the latest and greatest PS5 deals this Black Friday, we’ve hand-picked the very best available in the US and UK right now.
