Black Friday 2020 Latest News: PS5, Xbox Series X, Predictions, Countdown, Deals, and more

With numerous store closures and new precautions in place to ensure people's safety, Black Friday 2020 may look very different in the UK this year, which is why we're here to give you the very latest news in the run-up the event.

Taking place on 27 November, after the delayed Amazon Prime Day, the huge sales event is the destination for great deals on everything tech. If you're looking for a console, headset, controllers, TVs, gaming laptops and more - Black Friday is the sale for you.

But what can we expect with the changes to the physical shopping experience? And is there a chance it could be delayed like Amazon Prime Day?

Will there be discounts on Next-Gen?

As much as we would love to see it, we're unlikely to be getting any discounts on PS5 and Xbox Series X as Black Friday is only days after their release dates.

However, there may be other ways to save on the consoles, with potential bundle deals making an appearance later down the line.

Could Black Friday 2020 be delayed in the UK?

At present, there are no talks of Black Friday being delayed this year, but we can speculate that accessing the deals in person may be a very different experience, however.

Gone appear to be the days when having a store rammed to capacity was just a regular part of the mega-sales. In its place, masks, hand-sanitizer and social distancing have seemingly become the norm.

There are now more and more people looking to make purchases online, which means that many may have to wait for Cyber Monday to secure their wishlist.

The good news is that many retailers, such as Amazon, have their own Black Friday sales which are online. That's not to mention that places like Currys hold 'flash sales' in the run-up to the day itself - meaning you can still grab a great deal from home if you don't fancy the crowds.

 

What deals could you expect on Black Friday 2020?

There are some genuinely outstanding deals to be had on Black Friday, especially on tech.
