PS5 Game Console Specs

The standard PS5 is Sony’s highest-performing console yet, boasting an 825GB custom SSD and a speedy eight-core Zen 2 processor with up to 16GB of GDDR6 RAM. This model has a disc drive capable of playing 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray media as well as PS4 games, so it’s worth paying an extra $100 if you prefer owning physical media.

The PS5 Digital Edition is 12 millimeters slimmer and $100 cheaper than the standard PS5, as it doesn’t have a disc drive. This option is ideal for budget-conscious gamers who prefer digitally downloaded games. Otherwise, the PS5 Digital Edition is virtually identical to the PS5 in terms of performance, internal specs and cutting-edge gameplay features like Tempest 3D Audiotech and ray tracing.

The DualSense Controller features a sleek new two-tone design with textured grips, a built-in microphone, improved haptic feedback and adaptive trigger resistance.

Tips on scoring the best PlayStation 5 deals

There won’t be many Black Friday console deals, but don’t lose hope — there are still plenty of ways to save on PlayStation games, subscriptions and accessories!

  1. Don’t bother waiting for a reduced price. There’s no point in mincing words — if you want a PS5 and have the opportunity to purchase it for MSRP, don’t waste it!
  2. Console bundles offer the best value (if you actually want the additional items). Chances are, most Black Friday PS5 console discounts will be part of a bundle deal. Bundles are worthwhile when they cost less than the sum of its parts and feature games and accessories that you would probably buy anyways. Some retailers even offer customizable bundles, which makes it easier to avoid eating the cost for items you don’t need.
  3. Focus on PS5 games and accessories if you’re trying to save money. If your main Black Friday objective is “save as much money as possible”, PS5 storage and video games will likely receive solid percentage-off discounts.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • A few lucky shoppers have stumbled upon a rare $0.99 PS5 discount, so we can’t say that PS5 consoles never go on sale… but it doesn’t happen often. Bundle deals are the best way to save money on your PS5 purchase, but you’re mostly saving on the included games and accessories.

  • Five days before Black Friday, Walmart gave Walmart+ members early access to online deals from its “Black Friday sneak peek” ad, which advertised a freshly restocked supply of PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition consoles. If you are a Walmart+ member (or have a similar store membership), keep an eye out for these member-exclusive deals.

  • Most PlayStation Cyber Monday sales focus on PS5 games, PS Plus subscriptions and other digital discounts. Some retailers run the same Black Friday deals through Cyber Monday, while others offer different ways to save on Cyber Monday.

    Best Buy and GameStop had remarkably good Cyber Monday game deals in 2023 — we saw record-breaking low prices on Call of Duty: Vanguard ($39 at GameStop, usually $59.99), Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla ($19.99 at Best Buy, usually $59.99) and Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales ($29.99 at Best Buy, usually $49.99).
