We knew it was coming, and now it's here: The best Black Friday deal on PlayStation 4 hardware has been available since Sunday, but as of Tuesday morning PT, inventory is beginning to run low. If you're interested in getting this bundle before Black Friday, now's the time to act. 

The new, 1TB PS4 slim console bundled with the (totally great) Spider-Man game is available at Walmart, and if you're lucky enough to have a store with inventory remaining, Target. Both Best Buy and GameStop were running the promotion earlier in the week, but as of time of publication, they're sold out of the $199 bundle. 

It had been announced early via the PlayStation blog, and will be available at additional retailers, including Amazon, later this week. Here are the details, along with a list of other notable PlayStation-related sales available now or coming soon.

A couple of notes to keep in mind:

  • The links below direct to current store listings for the products. 
  • CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

Best PS4 Black Friday deals

The PlayStation 4 is a great all-round console, Spider-Man is one of the best big-budget games released this year, and you can save $100 with this deal.

The link below is from Target and the image above is from Walmart, but it will also be available at Amazon, GameStop and other major retailers starting this Sunday, Nov. 18.

If you already own a PS4, this kit takes it to the next level with two great VR games -- Creed: Rise to Glory and Superhot VR -- as well as the two Move controllers for just $30 more than you'd normally pay for the base VR system alone. This bundle is widely available as of Sunday at Walmart (see below), AmazonGameStop and Best Buy.

If you don't care about those games, or the Move controllers, you can look for a variety of bundles at major retailers starting at $50 less. Titles include Astro Bot Rescue Mission, Firewall, and Creed: Rise to Glory, and retailers include Walmart (below) as well as GameStop and Best Buy.

If you're going to be getting these bundles and games, you'll likely want to play multiplayer to take advantage of Sony's monthly selection of free games. This year's Black Friday discounts knock $20 off the usual $60 12-month PlayStation Plus subscription.

The Spider-Man bundle above includes the entry-level PS4 unit. It's great for the price, but if you want 4K gaming, you'll want the step-up PS4 Pro model. That isn't really discounted below its standard $400 price, but you can find it bundled with Red Dead Redemption 2 -- one of the best games ever -- at no extra charge. That's effectively a $60 discount, and months of amazing (adult) gameplay. (We have to note, though, that the Xbox One X version of the game does look better.) This bundle is available everywhere, but already getting difficult to find.

What about games?

Yes, plenty of great PS4 titles are on sale, too. Start by checking out the digital discounts at the online PlayStation Store. Compare those prices to some of the now-available discounts at GameStop. Some of our favorites -- all fantastic PS4 exclusives -- are listed below.
