Actually lack of availability just increases demand, this is actually working in their favor, though I'm sure they wish they could make more.

They really should've just waited until the end of the chip shortage before launching this gen. By the time most people get the tech into their hands, it won't even be cutting edge anymore.

The last console that released as cutting edge technology was the 360. I don’t think we’ll ever see it again.

Just last week, while traveling through CO to visit my parents, I stopped by the only Walmart for miles. They had, I shit you not, 10+ Series S stuffed into the locked cabinets and some just sitting out on shelves.

Same at a Walmart near me.

The last console that released as cutting edge technology was the 360. I don’t think we’ll ever see it again.

Thinking back, I think you're right on the money with that insight. I remember when the 360 came out it was faster than anything available at the time for a while at least.

I remember the 360 having more cores available than I could get on the PC I was building at the time. No console since has been able to top a PC at its launch afaik.

If I don't end up getting a Series X through the console pilot, I'm just going to end up purchasing one through a second party from OfferUp.

Would rather not pay resale of course, but prices aren't too bad compared to PS5s.

Not overpriced if you are planning to keep your subscription. After you apply the gift certificate to your subscription you are only paying $50 over retail; eBay the game to cover that and you end up with a free headset for your effort.

GameStop opens at 11am by the way

You may need to get there about 5am and camp out

Is the extra $50 for console trades the "huge trade offer" they mention, or is that already something standard (the valid time shows it running for the span of the week)?

I've never been able to grab a console from Amazon. Sometimes I can get in on the Best Buy site when they drop there but then it never lets me check out (only available for in-store pickup, gives me the option of every store, but then tells me it's not available there). The best bet is if you happen to be awake at 5 a.m. Pacific/8 a.m. Eastern when Target drops. Or overpay for a Gamestop or Newegg bundle when those drop.

Seems stores are getting 14 x and 8 s. My GameStop is getting 20 and 10. First one here surprisingly.

Anyone out camping for xbox? I’m not- just wondering.

Edit: Got ticket number #3 at 10:45 am for a series x. Easy, peasy.

I was about to ask the same thing. The best I can do is go half an hour ahead of opening. Wish me luck

One of my local stores (North Ridge Crossing - Westerville) has a sign up that they’ll have 8 X’s and 4 S’s). I got there around 7:15am and there’s no line and only one other person waiting in their car.
