If you miss your chance to snag a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X at launch this week, you’ll have another chance later this month during Black Friday 2020. GameStop released its Black Friday ad today and also confirmed it will have limited stock of the PS5 and Series X and S in stores only on Black Friday (November 27).
GameStop stores will open at 7 AM local time on Black Friday, and all stores will have a minimum of two PS5 and two Xbox Series X consoles at opening, according to the ad. A press release confirms the Series S will be available as well, but the PS5 Digital is not shown or explicitly mentioned, so it’s unclear if that system will be widely available. We suggest calling your local store for availability.
GameStop’s move to offer in-store-only console orders on one of the busiest shopping days of the year is in stark contrast with what we’ve seen at other retailers recently. Sony announced all launch day PS5 orders will be online-only due to safety precautions around the COVID-19 pandemic, and though Best Buy’s Black Friday ad also features the PS5 and Xbox Series X, the consoles will be restricted to online purchases only when they’re back in stock.
