Black Friday 2016: Sony Teases PS4 Digital Deals With Upto 60 Percent Off
Highlights
  • PS4 games will be heavily discounted from November 24
  • Sony has not divulged which games will be discounted
  • PS Plus members may get a larger discount

The Xbox One isn’t the only current generation console with a Black Friday sale. Sony has released a teaser for upcoming deals on the PlayStation Store — the company’s digital games storefront.

According to a page on its website, Sony’s Black Friday sale will take place from November 24. There’s a teaser video as well which ends with a sign claiming that you can expect discounts upto 60 percent.

 

At the moment it is unclear PS Plus subscribers would get an extra percentage off over and above the teased 60 percent. Reason being, Sony is running a sale right now that lets PS Plus subscribers claim upto 70 percent off on games.

What’s also unclear at the moment is which games will be discounted. Safe to say, you could expect deals on titles that are discounted on Microsoft’s Black Friday sale such as FIFA 17, Titanfall 2, Battlefield 1, WWE 2K17, GTA V, and The Witcher 3 to name a few, in addition to some of Sony’s exclusives.

While digital deals are nothing new, it's heartening to see Sony making an aggressive statement about it. Aside from the all but obvious reasoning that it stands to gain a whole lot more in terms of margin by pushing digital, it also curbs used game sales.

Although getting games cheap is always better for consumers, keep in mind that most PS4 games are around a 30 to 40GB download. For some, with slow Internet speeds or small data caps, it could work out to be a whole lot more expensive than ordering a physical copy from websites like Amazon or walking down to a store and buying an PS4 game on a disc.
