Black Friday feels like it starts earlier and earlier every year, doesn’t it? Not that we’re complaining, we’re a week out from the big event and the deals are already coming in thick and fast. This time of year is, as you well know, the perfect time of year to get moving on all the games you’ve been adding to your never-ending list over the last 12 months.
We might still be a week away from Black Friday officially starting (November 24), but we’ve already been treated to one of the best games deals we’re likely to see this year. You can pick up 2023’s entry into the Final Fantasy saga for just $39.99, that’s a fantastic 43% off in Amazon’s Black Friday sale.
If you’ve yet to play this game, then you should move fast to snap it up. We gave it a 9 back in June when it first came out, and we stick by that rating still. The 16th installment in the franchise is a little bit of a departure from what FF would usually expect from the series, but it’s absolutely worth playing.
More Early Black Friday PS5 Deals
The PS5 has recently had its mid-gen refresh and it has been christened the “slim model”. It’s early days for it so it is currently only available in selected markets. It’ll set you back $499.99 and the current bundle features Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or Spider-Man 2 at no additional charge; offering potential buyers savings of $70 compared to purchasing the items separately.
It’s not being explicity advertised as such, but we’re vieiwing these as Black Friday deals and you should too. You’re getting a brand new console and a new game for just $499.99, which is a great deal worthy of the event. If you don’t feel like grabbing the games as part of the bundle, then you can also just sell on the digital code and make some of your money back.
We’re getting close enough to Black Friday now to start seeing some of the top deals emerge. In other PlayStation news, DualSense Controllers have once again dropped to their sale price of $49 (see here), a reasonable $20-$25 discount depending on which color variant you choose.
