While it sounds like I'm describing a self-defense class, I am in fact actually prepping you for the inevitable Black Friday sale that is preparing itself for the mother of all consumer brouhahas.
Sony has announced that the PlayStation Plus Open Multiplayer Event will run from November 15th-20th, 2017. There will also be DualShock 4 controllers for $39 and PlayStation VR Bundles beginning at at $299.99.
It's a well-timed promotion, with recent releases such as Call of Duty: WWII, Destiny 2, and FIFA 18, plus the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II, all boasting substantial online components.
PlayStation Plus goes free for five days starting tomorrow
The PlayStation 4 Hit Bundle will also be available at R3999, down from the suggested retail price of R5299. This is the perfect time to pick up a PS4 as a gift for the special gamer in your life, or as a treat for yourself.
Access to PlayStation Plus has been jacked up a bit lately with yearly subscriptions rising from £39.99 to £49.99 in August.
While you won't see any chaos on the same level as the madness shown at North American Black Friday sales that our local retailers have copied with staggering 5% off discounts, you can expect to still see some hefty savings on the video game front. We're looking forward to another amazing holiday season and hope you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
