If you have been waiting for the right time to pounce on a PlayStation 4 system, now is that time, assuming you are a fan of Spider-Man. You can head over to Amazon and grab a PlayStation 4 Slim console with 1TB of storage and Marvel's Spider-Man game for $199. That's $100 off the regular selling price.
Sony had given consumers a heads up about this discounted bundle last week, noting that it would go on sale starting November 18 and run through November 26.
Not to be confused with the limited edition themed bundle, this version sports a jet-black console with a matching DualShock 4 wireless controller and a physical copy of Marvel's Spider-Man from Insomniac Games.
Marvel's Spider-Man is one of the most popular games for the PS4 right now, and for good reason. I've spent some hands-on time slinging webs myself and can attest that it's a fun game. I'd argue it's the best Spider-Man gaming experience to date, and certainly leaps and bounds ahead of the version that came out on the Atari 2600 a million years ago.
"This isn't the Spider-Man you've met or ever seen before. This is an experienced Peter Parker who's more masterful at fighting big crime in New York City. At the same time, hes struggling to balance his chaotic personal life and career while the fate of millions of New Yorkers rest upon his shoulders," Insomniac Games explains.
The PS4 bundle is not the only thing Sony is discounting for Black Friday. It's also partnered with retailers to discount the DualShock 4 wireless controller to $39.99 (or slightly less), and to sell the PlayStation VR (PSVR) starting at $199.99.
