Black Friday & Cyber Monday 2017 deals haven’t gone live yet but there’s still some great deals to be had on the PS4 Slim & Pro. Here’s a look back at our predictions.
The PS4 Slim & Pro (the latter dropping November 10) are mid-generational console updates from Sony which follow Microsoft’s release of the upgraded Xbox One S. Whilst the fact that the Pro is only releasing a couple weeks before Black Friday means we’re unlikely to see massive reductions on the console’s current retail price of $399 (for the 1TB version), leaked information is pointing towards price cuts to the Slim and a selection of bundle deals on the PS4 Pro.
Here at Cyber Monday Hero we forecast that the best PS4 Slim deals on Cyber Monday 2016 will see a $50 price cut.

Recent leaks from Playstation Lifestyle and The Inquistr also point towards a $50 price drop for the PS4 Slim on Black Friday & Cyber Monday. The leaks are unconfirmed but based on alleged information provided to BestBlackFriday.com by eBay. Our research has revealed that most of the articles reporting this story were actually written by the author of BestBlackFriday, indicating this this supposed leak may well be more of a marketing stunt.
Our prediction is supported by historical data though – last year Walmart slashed the price of the PS4 by $50 as shown in the flyer below. Popular games like Black Ops 3 were discounted too. Expect plenty of bundle deals this year on the Slim with games like Uncharted 4, Doom and Final Fantasy.
PS4 Pro Cyber Monday 2016 Price
It’s harder to predict deals on the PS4 Pro as it’s not officially releasing until November 10. It’s main competitor, the Xbox One S 1TB & 2TB consoles, are already on sale though and attractive Cyber Monday deals on the latest Xbox may force Sony to drop prices on the Pro. We predict a handful of online retailers to offer price drops on the console itself in the region of $30 to $40. Mostly we expect to see bundle deals on the Pro featuring additional controllers and games. Expect to pick up a PS4 Pro with Uncharted 4 or Dark Souls III and two controllers for $399. Sony yesterday announced the official release of two new pro controllers for the PS4 – the Razer Raiju and Nacon Revolution. This should encourage retailers to bundle in original PS4 controllers with consoles for next to nothing on Cyber Monday.
Should we expect any deals on the PS VR headset this year? Whilst the headset itself is unlikely to be discounted much, we predict a bundle deal with the PS4 Pro and Playstation VR headset to be priced around $849 on Cyber Monday 2016.
