How much is a PS5 on Black Friday?
Last year, the PS5 remained at the stated price of $500 amid Best Buy’s Black Friday sale, meaning the console could be picked up at an even lower price this coming holiday season. Luckily, the PS5 is much easier to snag now that demand is a bit lower and Sony is making them at a more streamlined rate, which proves the console will be set much lower for Black Friday 2022.
Is the PS5 getting restocked on Black Friday?
There really isn’t any major news surrounding this, but given that demand has ceased slightly and more people already have the console in hand, on top of Sony’s distribution itself being far more streamlined now, it should be much easier to get a PS5 console this Black Friday.
Stock will also be less affected by pesky scalpers this go around now that the demand has been somewhat slashed.
What is the cheapest PlayStation 5 you can buy?
There are two main forms of the PS5, with a third iteration supposedly on the way for 2023. The two currently existing form factors for the PS5 are the disk and the digital version, one with a disc drive and one without one. This means that you will pay $100 less, or $400, for the digital version, but are then essentially locked into the prices set by Sony’s store page.
