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.

As well as online gameplay, PS Plus members also get at least two PS4 games free per month, plus games for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita. You can snag the PlayStation VR Gran Turismo Sport bundle for $300 (normally it's $400) and the Skyrim VR bundle for $350 (the regular price is $450). You can also stock up on additional DualShock 4 wireless controllers while you're at it. And for those curious, it looks like discounts for the PlayStation 4 Pro will be rare if they exist at all. Starting Black Friday, games will be on sale in the PlayStation Store for up to 40 percent off.

PlayStation 4 and PS VR are available now at retailers.

To get in the holiday spirit, we've got some unbelievable Black Friday deals to share with you.
