GameStop PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X / S Black Friday:
GameStop notes that they will have the new PS5 and Xbox X|S consoles available for purchase on Black Friday in-store only with limited stock. However, the fine print notes that all stores will have a minimum of two of each console per store with a limit of one console per customer. That said, you might want to call ahead at your local store to get the specifics.
Note that Walmart has specified exactly when you'll be able to grab both consoles online during their respective launch days. Best Buy will also have both consoles in stock in limited quantities online. Even with the bots, it seems as though you're more likely to snag a new console this way than fighting the crowds at GameStop during a pandemic on Black Friday - especially if the stock could be as low as two of each console per store.
