The heaviest discount day of the year, Black Friday, is approaching, and during this day, shoppers are quick to take advantage of superb discounts on mostly any smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop and gaming console. Specifically on the topic of gaming consoles, is it better to get the PS4 right now or wait for the PS4 Black Friday 2014 deals?
It will be a clash of the titans between the two most popular gaming consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, during this year’s Black Friday. Which console will beat another, and which console will offer more discounts still needs to be seen, however, we can predict what you can expect during this holiday season.
PS4 Black Friday 2014 Deals
As per various reports, currently the PS4 is leading the gaming console war. However, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is not just sitting around quietly. The company is expected to offer at least $50 off the Xbox One on Black Friday.
Shoppers will usually find two types of deals on the PS4 on Black Friday. Some stores will offer cash discounts, while some will try to sweeten the deal by bundling more games and accessories while selling the console at the normal price. So which one you choose from these two depends on your needs: whether you value more a cash discount upfront, and then purchasing more games and accessories separately, or whether you’re interested in getting a good bundle by paying the normal price.
So how much of a cash discount can you expect for a PS4 Black Friday 2014 deal? It will probably be at least $50 off, as Sony Corp (ADR) (NYSE:SNE) (TYO:6758) too would not like Microsoft to win this war during the holiday season, and price cuts are a surefire way to get more sales.
Talking about the PS4 bundled deals, then you can expect extra games, controllers and PS Plus memberships thrown in. However, don’t believe them when they say that you are saving so much money by buying this bundle. Many times they count the cost of games at $50-$60, whereas it might be possible that those games are available for a mere $30 on sale. So a good thing to do here is to just count the cost of each part and compare it with other Black Friday deals and online prices.
Most of these deals that we have talked about will also be available online, so there’s no need to stand in a long line just to realize that when your turn comes up, the console is no longer available.
