When is Black Friday 2020?
The day of Black Friday is November 27 this year – the day after Thanksgiving in the US – which is always the fourth Thursday of the month.

What to expect from Black Friday PS4 deal in 2020
In two words: big discounts. The PS4 will be superceded by the PS5 come November, as both Sony and Microsoft next generation consoles are launched.
That doesn’t mean the end of the PS4 as there will still be games and support for it, but it should mean big savings as retailers and online stores begin to clear stock.
This Black Friday PS4 bundles will also be knocked down, and the PS4 may even be bundled in pay monthly phone contracts.
Essentially, if you’re looking for a big saving on quality enytertainment, this Black Friday should be a prime time to pick up the console.
There are always plenty of offers on the PS4 during Black Friday

How much will a PS4 cost on Black Friday
It’s hard to know. You can currently find the PS4 online from £249, with the PS4 Pro 1TB usually around £349 – but with the launch of the PS5 prices should drop substantially.
Last year there were savings of around £100, particularly on bundles, with a game and extra controller added in.
Bundles were available from retailers like Argos last lack Friday, starting at £329.99 and typically including a console, selected game, Blu-Ray and a special-edition orange controller.
For the same deal without the exclusive controller, prices start at £299.99.
Similar deals should be available this year, albeit at a lower price. The PS4 Pro may not be reduced quite so much, as it is more sought after.
