For those who want to close for pre-orders PS5 or Xbox Series XEverything is going down the line. Both systems will launch in less than two weeks, and it will be difficult for many gamers to buy their own consoles.
But you are not completely out of options. It seems that Best Buy is planning to offer both the PS5 and Xbox Series X in stock on Black Friday, if the retailer Online Advertising is to be believed.
Since the scores of both systems were sold out immediately when they were first sold on their respective pre-order days, the availability of either console was a major issue. Most retailers have been slow to re-supply new consoles, with Microsoft promising that additional Xbox Series X systems will likely launch on Xbox̵7;s November 10 launch date.
On the other hand, the best bet for most of those who missed the initial wave of pre-orders is to win a chance for a third-party seller or see the in-stock alert as close to humanly as possible. However, these are hardly helpful, as it’s also what other people wanting to lock down to the new gaming system are doing.
Best Buy is most likely the place you should go for Black Friday, especially if there are any new consoles in stock. Some Best Buy retail locations will open, but others have enacted less tolerant policies following the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s not clear if potentially stocked systems will qualify for online purchase.
Xbox Series X and Series S are scheduled to launch on November 10, with the PS5 hitting shelves two days later on November 12.
Even if one of the two consoles does show up at Best Buy during the Black Friday sale, keep in mind that it will likely be in extremely limited quantities.
It appears there are some games and peripherals offered under that Black Friday promo, including the PlayStation Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, DualSense PS5 controllerand Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, especially. The retailer is touting having an Xbox Series X / Xbox Series S controller in stock as well as savings for an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership for three months (save $ 22), as well as the ill-fated Cyberpunk 2077. , is still listed as in-store at Best Buy.
