If you’re in the market on Black Friday 2016 for Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4), we got you covered as we’ve been working hard to track down the best Black Friday deals for this year including the top gaming console bundles from major retailers.
The United States’ largest chains are once again offering one of the most popular holiday electronics deals, the Sony PS4 bundles, at Black Friday 2016 sales. Big-boxes including Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Costco and Kohl’s all have the gaming console bundles, which of course include a video game title, on sale this forthcoming Thanksgiving weekend. But which bundled Sony PS4 Black Friday 2016 deal is the best among the rest?
As much as Thanksgiving is a yearly tradition in the American land, so having gaming systems become amongst the most popular electronics bargains of the holiday sales season. The two most popular platforms are the Microsoft Xbox One S and Sony PS4. This year the latest iteration of the PlayStation console are the PS4 Slim and PS4 Pro and all of the top discount retailers are offering the gaming system at steep discount with some bundles pairing them with free games and/or extra controller.
In 2015, national retailers offered the predecessor of PS4 Slim at $50 less the original $349 retail price tag. Although the $50 instant discount was quite good enough, it didn’t match up to the promotion retailers were offering on the Xbox One bundles.
This year, things are different as the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of the most popular 500GB Sony PS4 bundles dropped down to just $299. The Black Friday 2016 deals on game consoles are also way better than the previous year.
As for this year’s Black Friday, consumer electronics giant Best Buy is offering the half-terabyte Sony PS4 Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End bundle alongside two free video game titles — The Last of Us: Remastered and Ratchet & Clank — for only $249. Best Buy is also offering Sony PS4 Pro with Toshiba 4K TV bundle.
Costco, on the other side of the aisle, is offering the same console bundle but without the two free video game titles but comes with two controllers for pricier $279. With all that being said, the price tag says it all and it indicates smart club members to skip on that deal.
The second-largest retail firm Target has the same PS4 Slim Black Friday 2016 deal with the standard $50 discount at only $249, which is a so-so bargain but still doesn’t have the two free titles being offered at Best Buy.
The most popular retailer Walmart, has a PlayStation 4 deal that you no one can snub: the Uncharted 4 PS4 Slim bundle is on sale for the same $249, but with an additional $30 store gift card thrown in, bringing the practical total price tag to $219.
But it’s the discount department chain Kohl’s once again wins the Black Friday on PS4 game console bundle deal. The company is offering the Sony PS4 bundled with Uncharted 4 for the standard $249 price tag, but it is paired with $75 in Kohl’s cash. With that being said, it leads to a total price of just $175 in total.
It is safe to say that the best PS4 Black Friday 2016 deal is from Kohls. The PS4 deal runner-ups are from Best Buy and Walmart, depending on whether you prefer a two free video game titles or a $30 worth of store gift card, respectively.
