On the eve of the PlayStation 4 launch, and only a week before the Xbox One launch, South Park has stepped into the Xbox One vs. PlayStation 4 ring. It's no surprise that the show, largely known for handling topical issues in a timely manner, would take on the PS4; previously, the show has covered not only the PSP but the Wii launches as well.
In the Season 17 episode titled "Black Friday," the gang braves the wilds of Black Friday in order to get one of the new gaming systems, though the group is divided over just which system to get.
The official synopsis from the studio is below:
"Anticipation for the biggest shopping day of the year is building. The dark days of winter are coming and that can only mean one thing: the fight to be the first in the mall on Black Friday has begun. The boys prepare to battle the crowds the day after Thanksgiving to get the best deal on the new gaming systems."
You'll have to wait until next week to figure out which system the boys choose (we're rooting for the PlayStation 4!) as the episode is just part one of a two parter.
