    I'm not trying for a console, but I ordered the new controller + charger.

    Went with BB, ordered pretty early, and they still won't both be here till about 5 days after launch.

    Thankfully I'm not waiting to run this new console, but rather replace an old controller that has had it's rubber pads wear out.

    Godspeed to you bros

    It's so stupid they chose a name 99% like the previous gen. Lots of people messed up at pre-order time and ordered the last gen X.

    My entire process took 13 seconds from seeing it was live to purchase. I now understand how it goes so quickly.

    when I tried with Costco it took me 3 minutes and it told me sold out as it attempted to process my card.

    That windows are so short

    My card and info was already loaded, it was definitely under 20 seconds before I was checking out.

    Welp I think that was the last hope. I'm SOL

    if you land a PS5 maybe we can work a swap out.

    my son is really into Spider-Man and probably would enjoy the 5 more. I don’t plan on opening my system today anyways since I want to pair it with a new tv to get the full power of the system.

    Fucking this. I was prepared to make a 90 minute round trip up to Bainbridge, GA and didn’t give it a second thought when I saw the option available. I was still too slow.

    People trying to get $900-1000 reselling them now. Looks like they really going for $750-800. My local fb marketplace has them around $750-850 with the 850 ones sitting a while.

    So if anyone just wants to make a quick buck flipping theirs

    Thought about buying one that was at $675 and almost justified it with how much shit I already have for xbox it would still be cheaper than buying ps5 and buying everything again. But up charge is so much and yea I dont want to encourage those guys so fuck it.

    I found a friend of a friend whose wife and him both were able to get a series x, and they sold me one of theirs. So I have it in hand. Had to drive 40 minutes to get it but worth it. Paid an extra $50 but they could have got way more if they just resold it so they cut me a break. Already own xbox controllers and games so it made more sense than trying for a ps5

    Picked up Xbox and it didn’t feel real till the nice lady handed me the box.

    I had two offers from people as I walked out to buy the system off my hands.

    one offered 400... lol.

    the other guy offered me 700

    I declined both politely and hauled ass out the Walmart.

    For the sports gamers out there who like franchise modes, there is a YouTube video showing a guy simulating most of a NHL 21 season on a ps4 and on a XBOX series x. What took over four minutes to simulate on the ps4, took about one minute on the series x. Quite an improvement
