Prime Day 2020: Best PS5 And PS4 Deals To Expect

The PlayStation 5 launches November 12, which makes this holiday an exciting time for Sony fans. Peak deals season is also moving into full swing, with Amazon Prime Day 2020 officially kicking off tonight at midnight PT / 3 AM ET. Some PlayStation deals are live now, and plenty more will be available throughout the week.

We’re rounding up the best PS5 and PS4 deals for Amazon Prime Day 2020. In addition to Amazon, there are deals at other major retailers, including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and GameStop. While we’re still waiting on the bulk of the deals to be available, you can get some PlayStation shopping done early right now. We’ll continue to update this article as more PS4 and PS4 deals become available.

It’s worth noting that there’s virtually no chance of any deals on the PS5; in fact, the console is currently sold out everywhere. However, online store Antonline has announced a limited quantity of PS5 bundles will be available to preorder tomorrow at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET, so if you still need to get your hands on the console, you can try your luck then.

PS4/PS5 Prime Day 2020 game deals

PlayStation game deals are beginning to pop up, including great discounts on sports games such as NBA 2K21 and Madden NFL 21.

  • Madden NFL 21 — $40 ($60) | Free upgrade to PS5 version
  • NBA 2K21 — $35 ($60) | PS4 only
  • Need for Speed Heat — $30 ($60)
  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order — $30 ($60)

Game deals tend to be featured heavily on Prime Day at Amazon and other retailers. Each year, we see discounts on relatively new releases as well as beloved hits. With the PS5 on the horizon, we might see even steeper discounts on PS4 games than normal. We’re particularly curious to see the types of discounts offered on newer PS4 exclusives like The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima.

While we’d be surprised to see preorder discounts on upcoming PS5 titles like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Demon’s Souls, or Sackboy: A Big Adventure, it doesn’t mean that we won’t see some nice deals on multi-platform holiday releases. Big upcoming releases like Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, and Cyberpunk 2077 have already received $10 preorder discounts at Amazon–at one point Watch Dogs Legion was down to $40. It’s worth keeping an eye on any of the major releases you’re looking forward to this holiday.

It’s worth noting that PS4 versions of most major holiday games will come with free upgrades to PS5. So if you see a PS4 game for less than the PS5 version on Prime Day, it’s generally safe to snag the PS4 copy instead.

PS4/PS5 Prime Day 2020 accessory deals

It’s likely that we’ll see some solid PlayStation accessory deals during Prime Day 2020. Last year, DualShock 4 controllers were discounted to $40. We’d expect to see some really stellar discounts on the DualShock 4 this year as well; unfortunately, you won’t be able to use the DualShock 4 with next-gen games on PS5.

If you’re looking for PS5 accessory deals, it’ll probably be a tad more complicated. PlayStation isn’t taking as friendly of a backwards-compatibility approach for accessories as Xbox. That said, the PlayStation Gold wireless headset has been discounted in previous sales and will be compatible with the PS5.

PlayStation 5-exclusive accessories like the DualSense controller and Pulse headset probably won’t be discounted at any retailer.

PS Plus Prime Day 2020 deals

We have a separate guide detailing potential PS Plus deals on Prime Day 2020. The short version: We expect PS Plus to be discounted (likely to $40), but you can already snag a 12-month membership for $33.49 at Daily Steals with promo code GAMESPOTPSN.

PSVR Prime Day 2020 deals

The PSVR will be compatible with the PlayStation 5, so it’s worth keeping an eye on the Marvel’s Iron Man Bundle that released earlier this year for $350. Retailers may want to start clearing stock of that bundle, just like we’ve seen in the past with previous PSVR bundles.
