• Black Friday is almost here
  • Players can get their hands on the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X ahead of the event
  • Gamers have to be quick in grabbing the new consoles as retailers run out fast

Black Friday is almost here, and video game fans are surely eager to get their hands on the new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, if they haven't bought one yet.

But where can gamers get the new consoles? Here’s a quick look at the PS5 and Xbox Series X and where to get them.

PlayStation 5

Sony’s PlayStation 5 brings players an even more immersive gameplay experience compared to the PS4. The new console comes in two versions: one that has a Blu-ray Disc Drive ($499) and the Digital Edition ($399) that doesn’t have a disc drive and only works with game downloads.

Both versions work with the new DualShock 5 controller and are capable of playing the same games. The PS5 features new technologies that greatly improve graphics and game audio compared to the PS4. It also makes loading times a thing of the past. And speaking of the past, it also offers backward compatibility for previous-gen games.

Interested buyers can get the new PlayStation 5 with disc drive and the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition via Walmart, but they’ll have to be quick in grabbing one the moment the retailer adds more stock because they run out fast.

  • BONUS: “Spider-Man: Miles Morales”

The sequel to 2018’s “Spider-Man” is another web-slinging game, “Spider-Man: Miles Morales.” This is a launch title for the PS5.

The titular hero Miles Morales is already popular among comic book fans but was made even more popular in the hit movie, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.” Those who want to get the game for the PS5 can get it from Amazon for $49.88.

Xbox Series X

As Microsoft’s latest and most powerful game console yet, the Xbox Series X can be expected to take gaming to another level. This succeeds the Xbox One X, which was previously considered the most powerful gaming console during its time.

The new Xbox Series X boasts great performance, almost non-existent loading times and amazing backward compatibility. This means gamers can play old titles on the new machine. This feature makes it perfect for those who love to jump back and forth new titles and their predecessors.

Those who want to get the new Xbox Series X can get it via Best Buy for $499.99 Friday. Buyers need to be quick, however, as Best Buy will offer limited quantities when it becomes available.

Unlike the PlayStation 5, whose release will be staggered in different countries from Thursday, the Xbox Series X hit the shelves worldwide
