DualSense Controllers Have Gotten a Big Early Black Friday Discount


DualSense Controllers have once again dropped to its sale price of $49.99 (see here), a reasonable $20-$25 discount depending on which color variant you choose. This is available at most major retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, and PS Direct. If you want to wait, Walmart will also have this deal for $1 cheaper soon (from 12 PM ET for Walmart+ members, and 3 PM ET for everyone else).

We understand that the difference may not be significant, but it’s still worth mentioning for anyone seeking the best possible offer. For now, just below you can find all the information you need about the DualSense offer and reasons why you should consider taking advantage of an early Black Friday PlayStation deal. Remember to also check in with us at @IGNDeals on Twitter/X where we will be providing play-by-play updates for Black Friday throughout the whole of November.

DualSense Controllers Are Down to $49.99 (Save Up to $25)

Opting for controllers like the Volcanic Red, Cobalt Blue, Galactic Purple or Gray Camo is your best bet as these are some of the most popular, tend to sell out during sale events, and cost the most at $74.99 MSRP — so buying at this at the $49.99 Black Friday offer will maximize your savings.

$49-$50 is the standard discount price we’ve been seeing for the PlayStation gamepad, and well worth considering over the holiday season, or as a potential gift for the PlayStation fan in your life.

GameStop has also got a great deal on the controllers, dropping them further to $44.99 if you decide to click & collect. This is another great option if you have a store nearby and don’t lose too much on the gas to get there as well. You can also score the LeBron James Edition from PS Direct for just $39.99 right now as well.

Should You Shop Early Black Friday Deals?

The answer to this is always: it depends. Black Friday has become something of a misnomer over the past few years and typically spans the whole of November rather than just the traditional day after Thanksgiving. Deals begin to crop up early these days, and that can leave many of us wondering whether or not these offers are actually worth taking advantage of — or whether it’s best to actually wait until Black Friday itself.

For these PlayStation deals, we highly recommend taking advantage of them right now. The DualSense controllers are currently available at their lowest price of $49, which has consistently been the discount price since Black Friday last year and also during the PlayStation Days of Play sales in 2023.

This also is the first time we’re seeing the new Cobalt Blue and Volcanic Red DualSense color variants go on sale, and as we mentioned, these could sell out by the time we get to the tradtional Black Friday sale week (from November 17-27 this year). So, for now, go nuts with these latest PS5 discounts and relish in the fact that you’ve scored a real early Black Friday deal.

Spider-Man 2 PS5 Bundle Deal is Also Now Live: $499.99

The latest PS5 console discount to consider is on the Spider-Man 2 PS5 Bundle for $499 (down from $559). This is a good deal, especially as it includes a new PS5 exclusive game that typically sells for $70.

It is also worth noting that this bundle includes the 2020 model PlayStation 5 (disc version), rather than the new slim model that can be seen with a different Black Friday bundle for $499.99. This alternate deal will be available from November 10 at Best Buy and includes Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 at no extra cost.

Walmart+ DualSense Controller Deal: $49 from 12 PM ET

This early Black Friday deal will only be available for Walmart+ members as part of early access to their Black Friday sale (12 PM – 2:59 PM ET) — this is also your last chance to secure Walmart+ at $49 for the next year (50% off). This specific $49 offer will also open up to general buyers from 3 PM ET today at Walmart.
