I wish you guys would stop saying only scalpers or people who pay over the odds can get PS5s or XSXs. I paid retail for mine after launch.
Just sign up to twitter deal accounts or other deal alert accounts if you are serious about obtaining one of the new consoles. It's not as hard as some would have you believe. Not as easy as walking into a high street store. I accept.
I've would have been able to buy a further 2 PS5s should I have wanted to just from twitter alone not really being that primed and on the ball here in the UK.
Well, not everyone lives in UK.
The only new console available here in the stores is XB Series S.
And i would have settled for an S, IF it had a Blu-ray disk - because on my XB One S i play only one game, that is ED, but i also use it as a Blu-ray player
Scalpers have had like 10 to 15% of the PS5 stock at last estimates. That's still 6.8m legitimate PS5s growing monthly at a faster take up rate than PS4
That's not monthly. That's 6 millions in 7 months.
Still a drop in the ocean of PS4 and XB1 out there.
And i doubt that only 10-15% of the new consoles are gotten by the scalpers. I highly doubt that.
People will not get as fussed about it, if it was only 10%
