PS4 online multiplayer open to everyone for 5 days

If you're a PlayStation Plus member, you'll get exclusive early access to some of the biggest deals in the PlayStation Store Black Friday Sale starting on November 17.

If you're looking for a standard PlayStation 4, the 1 TB slim console will retail for $200.

First up, all PlayStation VR bundles will be available at a great deal at participating retailers.

For five days this week PlayStation 4 online multiplayer will not require PlayStation Plus. While it doesn't seem like the standalone headset will be discounted further, the deals on bundles featuring cameras and controllers should more than makeup for it.
