It’s the first time that Black Friday has really swept Australia with almost every retailer getting in board. For the first time I can remember, there’s honestly something worth grabbing at every major retailer. To get the best deals, you’ll need to visit every one as whilst most retailers have the same games for sale, they all vary in prices.
EB Games has really the only decent PS4 Pro deal. It’s $499 with Wolfenstein 2, The Evil Within 2, Dishonored 2, Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls Online.
Both JB Hi-Fi and Sony’s online store have a 500gb PS4 Slim for $269. This is the cheapest it’s been in a while and is available in both black and white.
The Best Xbox One X/One S Deal
EB Games has really the only good Xbox One X deal too. It’s $649 with both Wolfenstein 2 and The Evil Within 2. Considering it only launched a few weeks ago for the same price (with no games), it might be tempting.
On the Xbox One S deal front, it’s getting absolutely ridiculous. EB Games have the One S for $279 with Assassin’s Creed Origins, Wolfenstein 2 and The Evil Within 2. JB Hi-Fi on the other hand have a One S with Minecraft and 3 months of gold for $259.
JB Hi-Fi has the PlayStation VR with a camera, PlayStation Worlds and Skyrim VR for a ridiculous $349. Considering PS VR launches for $549 with no camera and no software a year ago, this is a great way to get into the VR space.
The Best Xbox Live/PS Plus Deals
EB Games have 40% off a 3 month Xbox Live subscription whilst they also have 25% off a 12 month PlayStation Plus Subscription. The PlayStation Store also have 12 months off a PS Plus Subscription.
The Best Game Deals
This is where it gets a bit trickier. A lot of the game deals are quite similar across the board with Target, Big W, JB Hi-Fi and EB Games all opting to make a few games cheaper than the other retailers. We’ve put the highlights below as well as their corresponding retailer.
