Cyber Monday PS5 deals are going to be incredibly sought-after and could be one of the last chances of the year to bag Sony’s next-gen console. You’d certainly be forgiven for thinking that the sale might just be a continuation of the Black Friday PS5 deals from a few days before, but we’re confident there will be enough fresh offers to make it worth your while.

Better yet though, let us do the legwork for you as we’ll be rounding up the very best offers from the best stores. Yes, PS5 restocks will be thin on the ground, but Cyber Monday has proved time and again to be a great day for offers on the latest headsets, the best gaming TVs, and accessories. And seeing as some of the best PS5 headsets finally have a bit of time under their belts, we’re primed for big discounts.

Likewise, expect to see some of those prices tumble on pricer launch games and maybe a few bucks off some of the more modern releases. With any luck, Sony will have rolled full SSD support out to all players by then (it’s only on beta tester’s PS5s at the moment) and we’ll see some of the best PS5 SSD picks get those massive prices cut to something a bit more affordable. If not, you might be better posed taking a look at our best PS5 external hard drive guide to free up some space. Before we get into what stores will be ones to watch on Cyber Monday itself, here’s a quick rundown of retailers you should be checking as often as possible if you still need a PS5.

When will Cyber Monday PS5 deals begin?

Cyber Monday officially kicks off on Monday, November 29. You’ll want to be ready days before that though of course as there will be plenty of deals over Black Friday too.

Many retailers won’t be able to resist going even earlier though, so it’s well worth checking in on them throughout the week before Cyber Monday to see what’s happening. Many deals will have limited stock, so deals that were intended to run through Cyber Monday, might be gone beforehand. 

While many remaining Black Friday deals linger a few extra days, we do often see Cyber Monday ones get shut off at midnight as we head into the Tuesday, so it really does feel like the last chance with some items.

Should I wait until Cyber Monday to buy a PS5?

No way. If you see PS5 units in stock before Cyber Monday you should buy one immediately. The PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition have been incredibly hard to find all year, selling out in minutes (sometimes seconds) when they appear.

Of course, don’t pay over the normal price unless you’re getting bundled items. Some PS5 bundles are really expensive though as profit-margin chasing retailers add extra games, accessories, and bits of tat you would never usually buy in order to jack up the basket total.

You won’t get stung with buyer’s remorse by buying a PS5 before Cyber Monday as we’re not expecting any discounts at all on the console or bundles on November 29. Standalone games and accessories on the other hand should get some great deals.

How much will the PS5 cost on Cyber Monday?

We’re not expecting any discounts for the PS5 on Cyber Monday. Quite simply, it will sell out within minutes whenever it appears, so there’s no point in retailers discounting them. One thing you want to be on the lookout for when stock appears is overpriced units.

The standard PS5 should be no more than $499/£449 and the PS5 Digital Edition is $399/£359. Higher prices are only acceptable if you’re getting extra items like games and accessories. Do be sure to add those items up separately to make sure you’re not praying over their usual prices. PS5 bundles are quite likely to make appearances as retailers will be keen to boost their slim profit margins on the consoles.

What will be the best products to get Cyber Monday PS5 deals?

While the Cyber Monday PS5 deals we envisage happening will throw an umbrella over everything PS5-shaped, we think some particular items will be very much worth your time and attention.

First, we think PS5 headsets will see some excellent discounts. From great-value, wired headsets, to some of the best wireless headsets for PS5, there should be some deep price cuts on headsets – there always is and these are perennial deals to enjoy.

We’d also look to PS5 SSDs too – both internal and external. The former will be very hot stuff as this is the first deals season we’ll have with the console’s storage slot open and ready to use, from which you can store and play every game under the sun on PS4 and PS5. While externals are still great for those who are happy to have a lower-cost item that stores their PS5 games and can play their PS4 library.

Cyber Monday PS5 deals – games

If there’s one thing you can always count on during the sales season, it’s game offers. The previous Cyber Monday PS5 deals we’re better than we expected to be honest given how new the console was. We’ve listed a few highlights from last year below to give you an idea of what sort of offers to expect.

Cyber Monday PS5 deals – TV

If you have Sony’s new console or are hoping to pick one up in the PS5 Cyber Monday sales then you really should consider grabbing a good-looking TV to display your games on. Our best TV for PS5 guide is packed with quality sets and many of them received big price cuts last year and we expect the new 2021 Samsung and LG models to get involved this year too.  Here are some of the best deals from the last time around.

Cyber Monday PS5 deals – accessories

Looking to get some accessories to go with your PS5? Cyber Monday is a great time to be looking. The Cyber Monday PS5 deals should come up with some great discounts for PS Plus, headsets, and more. Check out our favorite picks from last year below.

DualSense deals

The brand-new DualSense controller is something of a technological marvel thanks to its haptic feedback; it allows you to feel every bullet fired from a gun or the gravel beneath your car’s wheels. Discounts were few and far between last year, but we’re optimistic now it’s been around longer.

This year’s PS5 Cyber Monday deals may also benefit from discounts on the two new colors that have been released since too in Midnight Black and Cosmic Red. Check out today’s best prices below.

PS5 remote

If you’re going to be using your PS5 for general media apps like Amazon Prime or Netflix, this is a good buy – it’ll make the process much easier, especially for those who aren’t familiar with the DualSense controller or gaming in general.

Our bargain-hunting software will bring you the top offers in the PS5 Cyber Monday deals (and today!) in the comparison chart below.

PS5 HD camera

The perfect choice for any streamers on the PlayStation 5. Besides videoing you in crisp HD, it is also able to cut out the background around you for something a little more interesting. Which is very cool, obviously – it’s a bit like a greenscreen. This is far from an essential accessory in all honesty though, which is why it might be worth waiting until the Cyber Monday PS5 deals kick off as you might get a discount.
