This statement means it’s now unclear whether Best Buy will have the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S available online during Black Friday as previously reported. Best Buy’s Black Friday 2020 ad shows both the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S and advertises them as being available online-only in limited quantities, and their inclusion in the ad implies they’ll be available during Best Buy’s Black Friday sale, which the retailer has still not shared start dates and times for.
