Is that a game you can play with a winning condition, or do you just make a load of noise?

There are a few multi-player game modes as well as a freestyle mode.

Where am I most likely to get a PS4 bundle for sub £200 on Black Friday? I don't have Amazon Prime, but I'm willing to sign up for a free trial.

There aren't any that I'm aware of yet, and any Black Friday deal will most likely come bundled with a game so you'd be looking at £249, for example:

Yeah, that's the best that is out there currently. Supposedly last year you could get a PS4 and 4 games for £199 on Amazon, so hopeful of something quality like that.

The bundles were better last year, this year most retailers seem to be focusing on PS VR instead. Should be something better this week, you'd imagine.

If you don't mind second hand, check out the Amazon Warehouse. Currently have a 20% off everything sale, and, while most of the best PS4 deals have been taken, more will get added over the week.

Edit- Keep an eye on GAME too. Surprisingly, they put together some very competitive bundles.

Wherever sells them cheapest, really.

I tend to get my games from a variety of places, all price-driven.

Argos, Amazon, Tesco/Sainsburys (although the halcyon days of getting cheap games from supermarkets are long gone), PSN/Switch Store for digital, even GAME do decent prices for stuff from time to time.

Also - hello and welcome to the forum, I see you're pretty new :D

Yeah. I find The Game Collection are often cheapest around, but I'll always check round Shopto, Amazon, GAME, Base etc for the cheapest option.

Amazon or games365, depending on who is cheapest. Occasionally Argos or Smyths will have a good price on something so if I happen to be nearby Ill pop in there but the vast majority of my games are bought online.

Amazon, Sainsbury's online (with groceries), GAME, Argos, PSN/Xbox, eBay outlets...basically if the shop is legit, I'll buy from them. Can't say there's any loyalty on that front.

Made it to the front of GAME Black Friday queue and they were offering the same deal. Tenner more for The Last of Us or Overwatch.

Feel like if I hold out the same bundle will be £200 somewhere. Ideally I'd like Currys PC World because I get 8% off there through Perkbox.

Is it just me, or did deal used to be better? Got a PS4 slim (when it was brand new) with Uncharted 4 (6 months old), Ratchet and Clank (6 months old) and Drive Club for £180. Would have thought 2 years later there'd be bigger discounts but I suppose the RRP of the console hasn't changed, has it?
