I would hope they all had them this morning. Preorders only went up 4 hours ago.

SDM sold out first, followed by Walmart, EB, Source, MS Store, Amazon in that order. The only ones that lasted more than 10 mins were MS and Best Buy and that was because of checkout errors.
I am sure microsoft unlike sony has their shit together and will release way more units over the weeks.

They only got 6 preoders in at my local gamestop (all sold out of course). They had 14 ps5's at the same store. I'm guessing there may be a shortage.

I didn’t know whether to use laugh or triggered on this one, sadly I know you are right.

This next one is going to hurt. Throne speech is going to kill us tomorrow.

It's odd that Sony is producing twice as many next-gen consoles than MS for launch. Unless MS is just keeping more of them for their own website.

Yeah, you may be right. Or either Gamestop held them back for online. It is weird that they had way more PS5's than Xbox's.

Why Gamestop would sell the digital versions of these consoles is beyond me. You are letting people pay you to kill your store.

Every canadian site has it.

Plus price drop

No idea what you're talking about bud. I watched every site from Walmart to EBGames sell out almost as soon as their sites were functional. I barley managed to grab a pre-order from microsoft.

Multiple retailers had sites crash. Xbox pre-orders are the real deal and you also have to remember during this virus hoax that people are starved for cash so Gamepass plus a $299 console is a big deal.

Then some retailers, including gamestop, have Xbox all access allowing users to get a $500 X for $24 a month with gamepass included.

I mean let's be honest here, MS has this set up perfectly for short-term until the first acquistions and their stable studios put out games the first half of next year and some of the last, while the new acquisitions will put out games end of next year and early 2022.

Keep the conspiracy or political bait out of gaming side when it’s not on topic.

Thank you.

So you're going to pretend I didn't say that the factual situation now occurring may cause people to be strapped for cash, and based on public data, million so people are indeed strapped for cash? You don't see how that would effect people buying multi hundred dollar machines?

I mean if it's the word "hoax" that is causing the problem that's fine and I won't use it on this part of the forum as you requested, but that one word shouldn't dismiss the whole post otherwise imo but very well.
