Black Friday second-hand PS5 deals
What will be the best deals on the PS5 during Black Friday?
For the moment, it is extremely difficult to predict any offers on the Playstation 5 consoles. The stocks of the latter are extremely limited, even two years after its release. Home console production lines are still feeling the stigma of the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on the semiconductor metal market. As a result, console restocks are often meager and unpredictable all the time. We should therefore not expect promotions on the price of Standard and Digital consoles, but rather on PS5 games and accessories.
Black Friday titles on sale! The PS5 has many essential games, which is what makes it strong on the home console market. A bias on the part of Sony who has managed to forge universes that are very popular with players. For the start of Black Friday 2022, there are already very big titles on sale in the catalog of PS5 or PS4 games. Death Stranding, The Last of Us, plus great deals on 2022 titles. We’ll be monitoring the day’s upcoming deals in real-time to bring you the best deal possible on PS5 games and accessories.
Will the PS5 be at CDiscount for Black Friday?
If you want information worth its weight in gold on the Playstation 5 market lately, CDiscount is by far the French retailer to offer PS5 consoles most regularly. With a solid average of one restocking per week, the e-commerce site remains the best option to watch out for if you finally want to get the precious sesame to the next-gen. Be careful though, the Sony console is only very rarely offered alone, but rather in packs also including games and accessories. These packs can sometimes reach relatively high prices.
Will the PS5 be at Micromania for Black Friday?
Although very popular in France, the Micromania brand is not the best student when it comes to selling Playstation 5 consoles. Restocking at this retailer is very limited, resulting in strong presence on the site when the PS5 is put back online. Result, unless you react within a minute after the announcement of a sale of Playstation 5, difficult to hope to overcome the endless queues of players and players on the PS5 product pages. But it is always possible with a little luck and a lot of perseverance, to obtain the precious Grail. Especially during Black Friday 2022.
Why will there be few stocks in 2022?
As since its release exactly two years ago, the Playstation 5 is still the victim of major stock shortages. This phenomenon is largely due to the consequences of the Coronavirus pandemic on the production of semiconductor metals in Southeast Asia. Essential for the manufacture of electronic chips, this raw material has been lacking since production interruptions during the pandemic, directly impacting Sony’s production lines. Add to that the great popularity of Playstations in France and you will have a pretty bad cocktail for the sale of PS5.
What are the PS5 prices for Black Friday?
Some lucky people have been able to get their PS5 in recent days during short event operations orchestrated by Veepee, Carrefour or Micromania. Others ran into sites that were stormed and quickly planted. Bugs, delays, sites out of service… Complaints from gamers have been numerous, as well as criticism towards those who then resell the PS5 at an inflated price. Even after Black Friday, we can also find PS5 consoles on market places at prices much higher than the official price. Sometimes count up to 1000 euros for a console usually sold for 549 euros, far from the “good deal” advocated by Black Friday. But in these times of crisis and supply problems, there is no doubt that these rare consoles will quickly find takers…
Will the PS4 be sold off during Black Friday?
The supply difficulties of the PS5 benefit its predecessor, the PS4, which sees its lifespan extended and still benefits from very recent games and a much larger catalog. For this Black Friday, the offers were legion, whether on the console itself but also on many games on sale or offered in packs comprising several games, sometimes flagship opuses of the PS4.
If after any attempt, there is no way to bring yourself a PS5 and you come across a good deal, the PS4 could be profitable. However, if you did decide to buy a PS4, there are a few caveats to consider. Indeed, the best model, the PlayStation 4 Pro, is no longer in production, so you may end up paying more if you find it in stores.
The PS4 version valid on the market and potentially in reduction will be the PS4 Slim. It should be noted that its resolution is limited to 1080p, so you will not be able to benefit from the 4K format. On the other hand, there is no denying that several PS4 exclusive games are worth trying and could be worth getting the console. Some of these famous titles include, God of War: Ragnarök, Bloodborne, Persona 5, FIFA 23…
Black Friday is often the occasion to take advantage of big discounts on the various subscription offers. Gaming is one of them with regular promotions on the PlayStation Plus subscription which notably allows you to play online.
What are the best PlayStation 5 games on Black Friday?
In order to be able to enjoy exclusive PS5 games, you will first have to find a restocking of the console, which may be difficult. But surely Sony has made sure that lucky gamers who got their hands on a PS5 don’t need to go back to their old PlayStation consoles. Some of the best PS5 exclusive games include The Last of Us Part 1, Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut, and Spider-Man Remastered.
As for Black Friday, we could more or less hope for discounts on games that came out at the start of the year and which made the buzz such as Elden Ring. We could also expect discounts on games that have just been released on PS5 such as Horizon Forbidden West, God of War: Ragnarök and The Last of Us Part I.
