GameStop will sell PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X in-store on Black Friday

GameStop revealed its Black Friday plans, which include massive sales on recently released video games. The retailer will have next-gen consoles available in-store as well.

The Black Friday ad notes that the players can grab a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X on Black Friday, but a limited stock will be available. It’s not clear just how limited that number will be per store, with the ad noting that stores will stock a minimum quantity of two of each. The ad does not mention the Xbox Series S, nor whether the available PlayStations will be discless or not.

The sale also includes tons of games. The recently released Watch Dogs: Legion will sell for $33, which is nearly half off its current price. Madden NFL 21 and Marvel’s Avengers are both $27, while Star Wars Squadrons will cost $17.  All those prices eclipse those featured in Target’s first round of Black Friday sales, though the retailer says it will price match throughout the month.

Most notable in the sale is the Xbox Series X version of Gears Tactics. The next-gen game will be available for $30, which is a massive sale considering its a launch title for Microsoft’s new consoles.

PlayStation owners can grab a handful of Sony’s biggest 2020 titles during the sale. Ghost of Tsushima and Crash Bandicoot 4: It’s About Time will be available for $40, while The Last of Us Part 2 will be cut down to $30.

Unfortunately, Nintendo Switch owners aren’t getting too many perks. Recent games like Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Paper Mario: The Origami King are not included in the sale. Those looking to buy the console itself can get one on Black Friday with three months of Nintendo Online included.

PS5 and Xbox Series X next to each other.

It’s hard to believe that we’re already one year into the life spans of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S -- mostly because many players still haven’t been able to buy them.

It’s no stretch to say that this has been one of the most frustrating and unstable console generation launches in the video game industry’s history. Launching a system during a pandemic would already be hard enough on its own. But toss in a chip shortage, and you have a set of consoles that are incredibly difficult to track down and don’t yet have a year’s worth of games to reward that effort due to a slew of delays. Even so, both Sony and Microsoft have created powerful gaming machines that are still worthy of being excited about heading into a stacked 2022.

Tesla's newly redesigned Model S sedan for 2021 could be the perfect road trip companion. Alongside a top cruising speed of 200 miles per hour, you're also getting the power of Sony's PlayStation 5 inside your ride to keep you entertained for the entire journey.

In its press announcement in late January, Tesla didn't reveal which processor or GPU will be powering its 2021 Model S, but we are now learning that the rig could be powered by the same AMD graphics architecture found across game consoles and PCs. A leaked schematic posted by Patrick Schur revealed Tesla could be using AMD's Navi 23 graphics processor inside the new Model S, which would mean that the car would share the same RDNA 2 architecture as some popular gaming systems.
