I seriously can't believe this happened to me and I almost want to cry, paid retail price for every single one also

I’m trying to buy both of them (ps5 and series x) and although Xbox appears more in stock in England at least I still cannot buy any of them . 🥲

and I have discord for stock alert or whatever.

download the respective store apps to your phone and stalk the add to cart button instead of using the website (on days where you know they'll be in stock)

Are cards even going for MSRP anymore? IIRC everything went up due to tariffs on Chinese products in Jan.

Not really difficult. I bought 5 ps5 being in a telegram alert group, so i i managed to get mine for free with the profits of the other 4. If i wanted to buy more i could, but really little margin now on wallapop so i pass. Also got a series x in december

I gave up on getting a 30 Series card. Instead I bought a Samsung TV(QN90A) that supports 4K 120hz Gsync 8bit color 420 chroma with my 2080ti on HDMI 2.0. Only downside is no HDR in that mode. My next card will be the 40 Series.

Got PS5 and XSX on day one.

In December, I got on a discord server and less than an hour later I saw a message saying 3080 FE were in stock, so I bought one.

See OP, you're not special. You're far from special.

I have a PS5, xsx and 3070

In fact at one point or another I've had 5 PS5's and 3 XSX's ordered where I've either recieved it, sold to friends/family for RRP or cancelled because I've managed to get one at another store that's more reliable or was going to deliver sooner.

my previous card before the 3080 was a GTX 670

i was long overdue, I would have honestly been extremely happy if someone gave me a 2080

Will buy another card in a decade

Good for you,

What one do you use the most or are having the most fun with?
i haven't really touched any of them

recently bought a Everdrive 64 and been playing it S-cable on a 40" CRT I found at the thrift store

I really wish N64 had some light gun games though

Managed this in 2020 without much trouble.

In Australia anyone that really wanted a XSX, PS5 or 3080 could have got one in 2020 or at numerous times since as new stock was released.

The talk of stock issues is way overblown, yes you cant just walk into a store but you can/could pre-order or go in a queue get one.

I don't have PS5 (as I am going to be buying it later down the generation), but I managed to snatch RTX3090 FE, XSX and SAMSUNG A51 5G (which is not in stock to buy in here due to probably some chip shortages)....

Gratz!
Welcom to winners club!
I've got 3080 founders on release week for nvidia price from their site!
PS5 in january (but ordered on release date)
Even got new lg c1 48" OLED which people seem to have problem finding :p
What's even better - with 3080 I've got watch dogs 2 which I sold. With lg c1 I've got 200usd headphones for free :p

I just started looking at what video card to get. Might settle on RTX 3000 series, just dont know which one. Some RDNA 2, RX 6000 series card is still on my radar too.

Yeah, with the right resources it can happen.

Some think its impossible but it's not. I was able to get a PS5 and XSX about months apart, after giving away my launch PS5 as a gift, lol. And had/have chances to get more.

Just have a place, site, extension, etc that has stock alert alarms and you're set. I used a live stream, (this was the most reliable for me) it had an auto alarm when stock was available, and the streamer would drop the link or you just looked at the screen and went to the site. Just gotta hear that alarm and your chances increased dramatically.
