The Last of Us Part 1 | AU$124.95 AU$69 at Amazon (save AU$55.95)

Having released in early September, this remake of the first game in The Last of Us franchise is more than a simple remaster for the next-gen console.

You can grab this one with a 54% discount (or alternatively sign up for PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium to play it for free).

Demon's Souls

Demon's Souls | AU$124.95 AU$52.95 at Amazon (save AU$72)

Just like the PS5 version of The Last of Us above, this remake of FromSoftware's first entry into the Souls series is an entire rebuild of the original. Whether you're familiar with or new to "Soulsborne" games, Demon's Souls is a challenging, but thrillingly rewarding PS5-exclusive. It's also managed to land a 58% discount ahead of Black Friday and is well worth taking a chance on.

The Nioh Collection

The Nioh Collection| AU$124.95 AU$55.95 at Amazon (save AU$69)

Many games in recent years have tried to emulate the winning formula of the "Soulsborne" games, but few have managed to achieve it in quite the way that Nioh does. A challenging, rewarding and often frenetic adventure through feudal Japan, this remastered collection of the original Nioh game and its sequel offers plenty of gameplay in the one package – particularly when considering this handy 55% discount.

When do the Black Friday PS5 deals begin?

Luckily for you, they already have! Amazon already has a reputation for delivering some of the best deal opportunities for new and old games and that's especially true for Black Friday – and these early deals are the proof in the pudding! 

You can also expect more deals to start emerging from the beginning of Black Friday week on Monday November 21, with more opportunities to snag a bargain emerging and re-emerging all the way through until Cyber Monday brings it all to a close on November 28.

What to expect from PS5 deals this Black Friday?

The early deals we're seeing already give us some idea of what we can expect from future PS5 game deals in the lead up to the Black Friday four-day weekend. All bets seem to be off, with even 2022 releases getting their prices thoroughly slashed, and there's every reason to hope we might see deals on other recent releases pop up too.
