Black Friday: Best PS4 game deals (that will also play on PS5)

This story is part of Holiday Gift Guide 2020, CNET’s gift picks with expert advice, reviews and recommendations for the latest tech gifts for you and your family.

Black Friday is on, and video games are the big sellers this year. Some of the biggest PS4 games of 2020 are on sale, and — thanks to the PS5’s backward compatibility — these titles will all play on Sony’s newer console, too, along with an extra boost in performance. (Of course, these are all silver discs, so they’ll only play on the PS5 with a Blu-ray drive — not the all-digital $399 PS5, which requires downloadable digital games.) We’re already seeing these sell out at some vendors, but keep checking back as we’ll continuously update availability. 

If you’re still determined to get one, visit our check PS5 restock page for updates.
