One company in particular, Sony, has gone ahead with a set of official Black Friday deals for fans eager to get their shopping on when the biggest shopping day of the season hits on the day after Thanksgiving. The headliner is a bundle that includes a PlayStation 4 and the critically-acclaimed new Spider-Man game for just $199.
Still, if you'd rather zip around NY as your friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man then the current offering from Sony is still a great deal.
One of the standout offers is a Marvel Spider-Man Standard Edition PS4 Bundle, which includes a DualShock 4 wireless controller and a copy of the Spider-Man game for $200. Specifically, Sony mentions the Blue Camouflage, Magma Red, Midnight Blue, Gold, and Crystal controllers in today's announcement, but it's unknown if more controllers beyond those will see discounts.
Sony specifically notes that the Black Friday offers will be available "starting November 16 in the USA, and November 22 in Canada".
First up, you'll be able to grab a discount on your PlayStation Plus subscription from November 16-27.
The headline deal of Sony's Black Friday is a PS4 Slim console bundled with Spider-Man for $199.99. Based on the flyers from Walmart and the rest, you can expect most recent Sony titles, including God of War, Detroit: Become Human, and MLB The Show 18 to be on sale.
Here's the best news about all of this: you don't necessarily need to deal with the Black Friday crowds to take advantage of these deals.
