Hello everyone. Black Friday is almost upon us, and we're excited to find out which deals pop up on the Playstation 5 – including accessories and games. But, we know it can be hard to keep track of what is actually a good deal and where to find those gems, so we'll have our ear to the ground with this live blog. We'll be tracking all the best PS5 Black Friday deals whilst directly linking you to the relevant retailers.

If you've kept up with Playstation news (or next-gen gaming in general), you'll know that PS5 consoles are difficult to get hold of. While we can't promise there are going to be major savings on the console alone, we will certainly be looking for them – and you'll be the first to know what we find. There are already some great bundle deals, which may be your best bet if you want to grab yourself one of these elusive consoles. But be warned: stock goes very quickly, so we'll be working hard to post updates on any console deals as soon as they appear.

One thing to keep in mind with any Black Friday deal is the original retail price of products. When looking at Playstation products, the PS5 (with disc drive) sells for $499.99/£479.99 and the PS5 (digital edition) sells for $399/£389. Retailers can sneakily bump the 'original' price up to make you think you're getting savings when you're in fact paying the full cost. But don't worry, we'll make sure to carefully pick and choose deals that are... well, deals.

Now, let's check out the best PS5 deals live right now. We'll start out with some quick links of our favourite savings, and below that will be our live feed of the best Black Friday PS5 deals as they come (and go). Happy gaming!

Okay, so this isn't technically a saving. However Playstation 5 stock is incredibly infrequent so it's a good idea to buy whilst you can, and right now Argos has the digital-only version of the PS5 available to buy. We also tend to see pretty good deals on bundles pop up, so that's another great way to get yourself one of these elusive consoles if you don't have one yet and we'll be sure to update here when we see any good ones come along. There's also stock of the disc version available for £479.99, but be quick as this doesn't usually last long!

With the Playstation 5 only having 825GB of internal storage, it's easy to see how that space can be quickly eaten up with games like the new God of War Ragnarök needing 84GB alone. A sure-fire way to rectify this is by installing an internal SSD, and luckily with sale events like Black Friday we're seeing some great discounts on our favourite brands. One of these great deals includes the Samsung 980 PRO internal SSD from Argos that is currently £179.99 £97.99, slashing £82 off the original pricing!

You can currently head over to Walmart to grab the PS5 (disc version) bundled with God of War Ragnarök for $559 - stock is selling fast though so snap it up whilst you can!

Games games games! There's plenty of savings to be had on the top PS5 titles at Amazon right now for those based in the US, and I've listed some recent favourites below. But check out this page to browse a wider range of Black Friday PS5 game deals.

If you want to own Horizon Forbidden West with alongside some really cool merch, look no further than this collector's edition! Originally retailing at $199.99, Amazon currently has the bundle discounted down to $179.99. With a saving of $20, you get a code for the full game on PS4 or PS5 as well as goodies like a hefty Tremortusk statue, mini artbook, steelcase and extra in-game digital content. It's rare collectors editions are still available from the original retailer a few months after release, so to see a saving on it is a nice bonus.

How about something a bit different? If you're like me and love nerdy merch, look no further than the LEGO Tallneck set from Horizon Forbidden West. Retailing everywhere else at £79.99, Amazon has currently slashed the price down to £69.99 in their Black Friday sale.  I own this figure and it's one of my favourite gaming pieces and was a fun build.
