Perhaps you’ve seen our huge master list of all the best video game deals you can expect on Black Friday.

Here’s the thing: You probably shouldn’t wait until then. Sony has already let loose some serious deals on its PlayStation 4 game console, the PlayStation VRvirtual reality headset and lots of first-party games.

Unless you’re able to concoct a clever combination of deals that stack with — for instance — Target’s 15-percent-off-everything Cyber Monday offer, we’re not expecting prices to get much better, and we’ve already seen a few deals run out. The time to buy is now.

So: What’s there to buy?

PlayStation 4

Sony’s PlayStation 4 Slim 1TB is just $200 right now — $100 less than the retail price. Practically every retailer is honoring that price, including:

  • GameStop
  • Amazon
  • Walmart
  • Best Buy
  • Target
  • Newegg (currently sold out)
  • Toys R Us

Mind you, there are a couple of reasons you might want to wait at least a few hours. GameStop says it will throw in a $50 giftcard, and Kohl’s will offer $60 in Kohl’s Cash with your purchase. (GameStop deals start online at 10 p.m. PT Wednesday and in-store 4 p.m. Thursday, and Kohl’s opens on 5 p.m. Thursday.)

PlayStation 4 Pro

Sony’s souped-up, 4K TV-friendly PlayStation 4 Pro won’t be seriously discounted until Black Friday (when it’ll be $50 off at GameStop), but you can get a couple of free games thrown in for the normal price:

  • $400 at eBay (with Star Wars Battlefront II and Final Fantasy XV) — try coupon code PSHOPAPP from inside the eBay app for an extra $15 off.

PlayStation VR

Sony’s virtual reality headset is also $100 off — and that applies to bundles that come with games and peripherals too.

Note: The $200 PSVR doesn’t include the PS Camera you’ll need to actually use it. $250-and-up bundles come with the Camera; $350 Skyrim bundles come with PS Move motion controllers as well.

  • $200 PSVR (requires PS Camera):  Best Buy | GameStop | Target
  • $250 PSVR w/ PS Camera, no games: Amazon
  • $300 PSVR with Doom: Best Buy | Target
  • $300 PSVR with Gran Turismo: Amazon | Best Buy | GameStop | Newegg | Walmart
  • $335 PSVR with Skyrim (slightly cheaper than below): Dell
  • $350 PSVR with Skyrim: Amazon | Best Buy | GameStop | Target | Walmart | Newegg


Need an extra controller? Sony’s PS4 controller, the DualShock 4, is now $40 practically everywhere they’re sold. That’s roughly $5-$20 cheaper than usual.

Plus, several retailers have sizable discounts on Sony’s Gold Wireless Headset: Amazon | GameStop | Target | Walmart
