Earlier this Thursday, PlayStation Store kicked-off their annual foray into Black Friday sale. Often times, this is your chance to pick up many recent and new-ish titles at great prices – without needing an active PlayStation Plus membership. But if you are looking to pick up a year’s worth of PS Plus at a discount, now is also as good of a time as 1-year memberships are on sale for 33% off at a number of retailers, including PlayStation Store itself. Before you plop over your cash, we actually recommend buying the subscription at Walmart for $39.99 because when you buy it at PSN, the membership will automatically activate and stack on top of your existing subscription. Conversely, at Walmart, they will simply send you a digital code so you can activate whenever you want to top-off (or give it away as a gift).
In terms of games on sale in PSN Black Friday’s sale, tons of games are at new historic low prices but as we are so close to Black Friday, a few of these newer titles on sale such as Red Dead Redemption 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will definitely be cheaper elsewhere. In fact, Black Ops 4 was $39.99 at Walmart and Amazon just yesterday (now expired) and will become available for that price again come later this week. Our suggestion is that anything new that’s only 30% off – you should wait until about Wednesday later this week as that’s when most of the sale will be live on retailer’s website.
Don’t forget that there’s an existing PSN Weekly Sale running still that includes very decent pricing on a lot of titles (requires PlayStation Plus for max discount), and of those our pick would be Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Just Cause 3. For our picks in terms of good deal (and decent title) in the Black Friday Sale, we would go with FighterZ, God of War (only $21.99!), Persona 5, and Monster Hunter: World (though if you prefer physical, select retailers should have this for also $24.99).
