5 PS4 Black Friday games deals to look out for

That said, we've been through enough Black Fridays in our time that we think we can guess some of the games that are more likely to receive price cuts than others. More recent releases like Borderlands 3, Death Stranding or Code Vein aren't quite as likely to be featured solo in Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals but it's not impossible. Especially if it does enter the Black Friday sales, which is likely given it’s a very early 2019 release. How could we think FIFA 20 will be discounted already
