Black Friday PS4 deals: our buying tips

Shop around

Be sure to shop around. Different retailers often offer different sales and exclusive deals on given products. Don’t make your own life harder – play the field and see what’s on offer. This is also vital if you want to buy the console itself, as stock is an issue.

Consider alternatives

When it comes to PS5 vs PS4 (opens in new tab), the main question you should ask is what games you want to play. If you’re looking for a console with a huge library of excellent games and you’re not fussed about the newest tech, then a PS4 is a great option. And, for the moment, many new games are being released on both the PS4 and PS5, so you aren’t missing out on the biggest titles. However, that will not always be the case, so if keeping up with the latest games is most important to you, you should strongly consider focusing on buying a PS5.

If not Playstation, then what? There is always the Nintendo Switch OLED (opens in new tab) if you want that edge on quality. Whereas the Xbox Series X (opens in new tab) just saw a power-saving update (opens in new tab) added. This could be a welcomed feature with energy prices the way they are now.

Before writing for TRG, Elie studied for a Masters at Cardiff University JOMEC in International Journalism and Documentaries – spending her free time filming short docs or editing the gaming section for her student publications. 


Elie’s first step into gaming was through Pokemon. The video games came later, but it was the trading card game that caught her eye and led to Elie owning an extensive playing card collection (She would tell you how many are PSA 10, but she doesn’t want to get robbed). 


When it’s not Pokemon it's got to be horror. Any and every game that would keep you up at night is on her list to play. This is all despite the fact that one of Elie’s biggest fears is being chased – so horror games aren’t always the most enjoyable experience. 


But really, anything weird and wonderful is right up her street. She loves to find new games and cool indie devs. Just make sure not to ask her anything about SCP if you want to get home for dinner.
