Xbox Series X will be available on store shelves soon

I'm calling it. Some of you will walk into Walmart in the next few weeks and see Xbox Series X available in the game section. Antonline and Gamestop have had bundles for sale for 24 hours and they have not sold out. People on Craigslist are trying to get retail price for weeks old Series X's and failing. Scalpers are all done buying them, and people aren't even willing to pay for the bundles. Bundles for Xbox suck extra by the way, as they usually include retail copies of games you already get on Gamepass for free. Anyway, not a genius prediction, but an interesting turn of events.

Good luck finding a PS5 still though.
 
They have been available in most stores where I live provided you know the delivery schedules of the shops….just like ps5s

Demand is still off the charts as people have covid money to spend

Possibly. 3 days ago I witnessed a Series X bundle at GS be available for a few hours.

Part of that could be people buying series s and also it's right after Christmas and people are paying off CCards.

Bundles are available on Gamestop right now. But you can probably get retail price on a new one from Craigslist. I just talked to someone who would trade me their Series x for my launch Switch. My son would't let me trade it though.

Scalpers don't want bundles as well BTW.

You can use stockx to get a good idea of the profit that scalpers are getting.

In the UK, its about 10 quid on a disc ps5. It's 0 on the series x. This digital edition still has a high premium if you can buy one. At this price, disc bundles are losses for scalpers.

I realize scalpers don't buy bundles, but people that buy off scalpers do buy bundles. If bundles aren't selling, scalpers aren't selling.

So, you post a thread topic like it's fact, but you're actually talking out of your ass and manage to take a shot at the PS5 on the way out. My Friday's have started worse i guess.
 
Don't think it will be a few weeks, but a few months.
April probably.

I'm glad the overpriced bundles don't sell out anymore.
If they give you $200 worth of extra stuff for $100 i consider it.

I already stopped buying PS5 bundles to scalp. Just the plain console anymore.

Yeah, bundles suck. The bundle I linked is gamepass, elite controller, and $50 gamestop card at least. Decent bundle if you want an elite controller, otherwise not great, but at least not bundled with games.
 
I'm not betting on that but let's hope so. Second hand prices for both XSX and PS5 in Sweden seem to have dropped to just 50-150€ more than they would be at retail.
 
This is how I got my XSX: I had bought a Surface Pro 8 recently, and a Surface Pro 6 years before. Microsoft emailed me to notify me that they would have some available for order and wanted to give me a heads up because I was a repeat customer. I wasn’t even really in the market for one but figured “why not” and ordered one with the Diablo 2 bundle.
 
Off who? Scalpers?

I am confused.

If the scalpers aren't buying bundles, do you think scalpers are bundling items together?
Ha. No, I mean if someone is willing to pay inflated prices to a scalper, they are more likely to just buy a bundle off a retailer. At least they are getting some extra goodies for the inflated price. If the bundles aren't selling then it is a logical indicator that people aren't paying inflated prices to scalpers either. Therefor scalpers stop buying consoles to sell. Therefore there are more consoles available to regular buyers. Therefore demand drops and consoles end up on store shelves. Hence my initial prediction.

Those who want that, will always see that. Not my intention though. I own all the consoles, and like them all for different reasons.

Usually those who use "I own all consoles" are just that.

You went on big sized rant about Series X availability then end the OP w/ "good luck finding a PS5 tho". You then go on about how someone wanted to sell their Series X for your launch Switch when you can get them for 300 or less (launch) on eBay.

Nevertheless, since you decided to make a thread about this as if it's fact, maybe we should determine what happens if your prediction doesn't come true soon?

Is this a troll post? there's a lot of tales from the ass in the OP. Fine if its just a prediction. but craigslist isn't a good barometer for market trends.
