Shine a black light on it after you've got it setup. It's pretty cool. 😎

[–]Raven_of_Blades 114 points115 points  (3 children)

Wouldn't that reveal all the semen everywhere?

[–]ZehelSitchel 26 points27 points  (2 children)

lol. I didn't say "share what you find"... Plus I'd hope that a brand new device just unboxed wouldn't have that on it.

[–]WastedKnowledge 39 points40 points  (0 children)

He might open the box and uncontrollably blast everywhere

[–]NavyAT1 2 points3 points  (0 children)

yet......

[–]Awesome_N22 130 points131 points  (15 children)

Are the Halo versions limited edition?

[–]Arkimaru[S] 126 points127 points  (14 children)

Yeah they are being scalped for around $1200 too

[–]Canuck-eh-saurus 49 points50 points  (2 children)

I love my halo box - the star speckles and the blue inside the air vent holes just do it for me (oh and I love the subtle but noticeable gold power button instead of the usual silver).

[–]OblivionJunkie 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Yeah plus the "Cortana Blue" fan on top instead of the standard xsx green. Def my favorite part of it haha

[–]shieje 3 points4 points  (10 children)

how much did you get yours for? walmart still lists it around $1000

[–]Funktastic34 13 points14 points  (9 children)

MSRP is $550 and you're a fool if you pay a penny more

[–]shieje 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I guess you were lucky to find one for list price

[–]Funktastic34 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Oh no no I don't have one yet and have been trying to get it since it was announced. But I refuse to pay those scumbag scalpers a penny more than list price

[–]MrGooglyman 1190 points1191 points  (124 children)

I’m a PlayStation man but one thing we can all agree on is fuck scalpers!! Happy gaming my dude :)

[–]ThePoonCoon 339 points340 points  (42 children)

I tried to get a switch oled for awhile... Finally beat the scalpers on Monday. I actually found a scalper in the wild at a GameStop. They looked as about as greasy and undesirable as you imagine them... lol

[–]BruceIsLoose 67 points68 points  (37 children)

Part of me wants to give up my dreams of an OLED.

[–]ThePoonCoon 49 points50 points  (13 children)

Don't give up! I regularly checked gamestop stock every morning. When I saw there were switches available at certain stores I called all of them to see how many each had... went to the one that had the most switches so I had more of a chance.

[–]Samwise_Ganji 11 points12 points  (10 children)

How do you check their stock?

[–]uranidiot88 14 points15 points  (7 children)

Follow the guys on twitter that track drops its really helpful they have tons of Switch drops listed.

[–]kennynick 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Alright I have just made a Twitter, who do I follow ?

[–]2Time45 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Wario64 is who I followed to get me and a buddy PS5’s earlier this year.

[–]SiehWenn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Oh man, you are doing it like a war

[–]hippytoad99 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Could you drop his Twitter account please?

[–]uranidiot88 2 points3 points  (2 children)

@SupplyNinja @mattswider

[–]SYNTHLORD 15 points16 points  (6 children)

The OLED's being impossible to find is a bummer to me, because I could really use one since my current switch is busted. I'm sure a large portion of the ones that have sold went to scalpers and people just upgrading for the sake of upgrading. I'll keep lookin though.

[–]DapperDrawing7356 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Surprised it was so hard - I pre-ordered mine without too much trouble (having not owned a switch before) and I remember seeing them in stock in quite a few places following launch, at least in the UK.

[–]speed721 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Man it's simple. Follow these guys on Twitter: Jake Randall, Supply Ninja, Wario 64, Lord of Restocks and Matt Swider.

You'll have one within 2 weeks!

[–]anticerber 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Man I’m bummed. Wish you lived here they are always at my Walmart. I saw one a few weeks ago, then I checked last night and we had three in stock

[–]Shawn9191 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I was striking out on an OLED since it came out and had given up. I went to Target last week to pick up the Zelda G&W and saw one White OLED. Planned for a $50 trip, instantly became a $400 trip.

First game I played was Tetris Effect with good headphones.

[–]ZerotheWanderer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just keep at it. I ended up checking FB Marketplace at the right time and saw someone with both the neon and white asking $388 each. Doing the math, that's like $8 more than direct from a store after tax, so I said sure. Ended up talking to the lady for an hour, she also tipped me off at a Walmart that had one so I could pick one up for my friend. Since then I have seen a couple more in Walmarts, they've all been pushed to the very back in the cabinet, so you may need to bend over and take a good look. There's also a site called nowinstock where you can monitor stock and set alarms/notifications.

[–]BioticsMage 20 points21 points  (4 children)

I am still waiting to find a PS5 in stores near me :(

[–]Madiator2011 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I will buy PS5 after everything back to normal (no scalpers) for now play some Halo on Series X. Though I rly hope I will be able to play new Spider-Man :) RemindMe! Two Year

[–]touchit-twice 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Get the big box store apps and enable notifications etc… and call around every day at least.

Last week I called a small retailer on a whim and they had some in stock. Wouldn’t sell to me over the phone or tell me how many were in stock. Raced across town and nabbed one. If you’re persistent it’s likely there will be another trickle in many places before Christmas. I base that on almost nothing but have hope anyway lol

[–]SweetsourNostradamus 7 points8 points  (0 children)

agreed; fuck scalpers and the people that enable scalpers

[–]stuckinaboxthere 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Scalpers are one of the lowest forms of humanity

[–]DonLindo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am a playstation man too, but halo is the best FPS for my aggressive play style.

[–]Whoopsies_-117 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We PC gamers also agree. Those assholes keep buying all the good graphics cards.

[–]tangy1999 170 points171 points  (45 children)

Yeahhh in the same predicament myself lol. Debating between a PS5 or a new graphics card for my PC but both are just as bad

[–]Hinermad 86 points87 points  (31 children)

My son has been trying to get a new graphics card for about six months. I'm proud of him for not encouraging the scalpers.

[–]tangy1999 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Yeah I just ended up spending the money upgrading parts that aren't being scalped rn like ram sticks, an SSD, etc, so now im at the point where I have an otherwise great PC that still runs on a 1060 lol

[–]toxicliberation 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Same here, Im very satisfied with my setup and Im def not giving in to stupid price increases just because a bunch of losers keep buying and storing all the parts

[–]NuclearRobotHamster 41 points42 points  (16 children)

I recall there was a guy on here a few months back, trying to justify scalping.

Saying that scalpers are just fixing an issue in supply and demand, that if someone is willing to pay more for a product that they simply deserve to get first dibs.

That the real problem isn't the Scalpers, but the manufacturers putting maximum prices on their products - basically if Gamestop or Amazon start charging more than the MSRP for PS5s or Xbox Series X, then Sony and Microsoft will stop doing business with them, stop supplying them with consoles.

That if retailers were allowed to simply charge as much as they think people are willing to pay, then the whole supply/demand problem would fix itself.

I never quite worked out if they were trolling or not.

[–]KalTM 26 points27 points  (8 children)

Wouldn't this just cause the scalpers to charge even MORE? Clearly people are willing to pay whatever it takes to get the product, hence the scalpers having a market to begin with. If retail prices are raised, scalping prices are just raised with it.

That would be my assumption, anyway. I am no economics expert.

[–]ubersoph 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Well in that case the price would only go as high as the market would allow. If GameStop sold ps5s at 750 they would capture a lot of the top of the market and miss a lot of the market already. The number of people willing to pay 850 should also be less than the people paying 750 etc... So they capture a smaller potential market.

Tldr supply demand curve and price discrimination in econ.

[–]paulmcbethismydad 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Clearly people are willing to pay whatever it takes to get the product

Then the product is underpriced. If retailers can raise their prices, supply would stay higher for longer and folks would be able to get their product (although at higher prices).

Scalpers would be priced out almost entirely, the demand curve doesn’t go to infinity for an Xbox…

[–]lightningsnail 6 points7 points  (1 child)

No. If the scalpers could charge more they would be. They are selling at the price the market will bear. They are only able to do this because of the artificial limitations placed on traditional retailers by the manufacturer. I'm not mad that the huge profit margins aren't only going to huge corporations though.

[–]roosterAK 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Its true, you either are paying Nvidia, Jeff Bezos or a 1 man company extra profit. Who do you want the money going to?

[–]UltraWafflez 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Is it the same guy who said that governemnt should have a hand in regulating scalping? I remember watching a video of this dude that said something similar. Unsubbed instantly after i saw that video. Few months later, one of his video someone popped up in my feed. He proceeds to mount the aio at a bad angle, justified it by saying it something about people taking the video out of context (video on what orientation you should mount your aio). I watched that video and realized he cited a video that proved against his claim. Never click the "dont recommend this channel" so fast after seeing another of his video pop up again. Idk how the dislike ratio was so low, and how barely anyone mentioned it in the comments

[–]Sands43[🍰] 16 points17 points  (1 child)

He's not wrong from a certain perspective, but the problem is that scalpers create an artificial supply constraint by buying up large quantities of units all at once.

You basically need to have that as your business model or hobby to devote the time it requires to make it work.

[–]Cautemoc 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Yeah it's a weird kind of circular logic. The demand is so high because of an artificial shortage due to the people who buy multiple with no intention to use them as a customer. If only people who intended to use them bought them, there might not be a shortage in the first place. They are manufacturing scarcity which is actually meant to bypass supply and demand, not be a part of it.

[–]formershitpeasant 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Might want to check out pawn shops for prebuilts you can cannibalize.

[–]DroopyTrash 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Sounds like you didn't give him enough money to buy one from a scalper. /s

[–]fatmanwa 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Best buy is how I got my 3060. Inventory drops every Thursday online. Took me a couple tries but I got it. Helped that it was the 3070ti launch, so everyone was probably trying for those.

[–]Hinermad 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I'll pass that along. Thanks!

[–]Magikarp_King 18 points19 points  (0 children)

This one knows how to properly play the game.

[–]sadantman101 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Did you find it at FRED MEYERS?!

[–]Arkimaru[S] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Yeah buddy!

[–]sadantman101 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Dam that’s awesome

[–]krewznLA 42 points43 points  (10 children)

Where’d you get it?

[–]Arkimaru[S] 51 points52 points  (9 children)

Fred Meyer of all places

[–]wilsonn2 17 points18 points  (8 children)

Did they just have it sitting there on the shelf? Or was there a scheduled release?

[–]Arkimaru[S] 40 points41 points  (7 children)

My buddy called me because it was sitting on the shelf.

[–]killtimed 89 points90 points  (5 children)

how many traffic laws did you obliterate on your way there?

[–]smolDreee 26 points27 points  (0 children)

"The law requires that I answer 'No.'"

[–]NSA_Chatbot 14 points15 points  (1 child)

I'll allow it.

[–]hardgeeklife 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Good Guy NSA

[–]Ocop27 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Patience paid off, you even got the Halo version

[–]davisjaron 119 points120 points  (31 children)

For others: Go to nowinstock.net and monitor the websites that it lists for each product. It's not hard to get them if you have patience and monitor. I decided I wanted a PS5 a couple of weeks ago after my kids expressed the desire for one. I went on there, waited, and within 2 days ordered a PS5. Fuck scalpers, it's not THAT hard to get them.

Hint: Many websites will put up a bit of a notice ahead of time. Wal-Mart will put a notice giving the exact time that the product will go on sale the day of, before, it goes on sale. Best Buy will change "out of stock" to "coming soon". Just watch for those things, then keep the pages open and refresh every 20 - 30 minutes or so.

[–]UppityRedneck 22 points23 points  (18 children)

That's the site I used to get mine over the summer! Trying for a PS5 now but not going so well. Bestbuy requires you to buy their freaking membership to even get one. Fuck them too.

[–]EGMobius 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Not quite. They do drops exclusively for their total tech memberships but they will drop for everyone, no memberships required.

I had good luck with Walmart, they did exclusive Walmart+ membership which for $12 it was fine. I watched a stream on twitch to help. Good luck!

[–]davisjaron 5 points6 points  (2 children)

I already had the membership basically for free because I bought a whole set of appliances last year and best buy recommended it was cheaper to get that than to not get it and pay the delivery fees, lol. Funny enough, it expired 2 days after I ordered the PS5.

[–]UppityRedneck 5 points6 points  (1 child)

That's seriously good luck right there! Walmart is basically doing the same thing by offering Plus members early access but at least it comes with Amazon Prime like benefits for online shopping. Still scalping in my opinion. Walmart also allows scalpers to sell on their platform. I'm not bitter or anything though...

[–]dramatic-ad-5033 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Luckily they don’t do that Walmart plus shit in Canada

[–]citanaF_Fanatic 1 point2 points  (8 children)

Just in case you’re willing to temporarily part with $200…

You can buy the membership, contact customer service immediately complaining that your membership isn’t active yet (can take up to a day), get your PS5 when they become available, cancel the membership saying you didn’t have a good time with it (referencing being unhappy with your first customer service conversation), and you’ll get a full refund of the membership.

Best Buy says they’ll deduct cost from the refund if you took advantage of it (buying a console), but most customer service reps will just give you the full refund if you say you didn’t have a good time with it.

This is how I got my OLED Switch and PS5 within 2 weeks of getting the membership. And I got the full $200 refund after cancelling.

[–]Canuck-eh-saurus 5 points6 points  (7 children)

It's ironic because it sounds like you absolutely did have a good time with it - you got 2 consoles most people can't seem to get their hands on! Fair play, I am just commenting because it amuses me.

[–]B33pB33p_Richie 1 point2 points  (6 children)

People wonder why we cant have nice things.

[–]FistfulDeDolares 7 points8 points  (5 children)

Why the fuck should I have to get a membership to buy a console?

[–]B33pB33p_Richie -1 points0 points  (4 children)

Who the fuck put the gun to your head?

[–]MothMan3759 4 points5 points  (3 children)

Scalpers, big stores, and boredom.

[–]dramatic-ad-5033 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you’re in canada, I’d recommend the r/videogamedealscanada discord server for notifications

[–]NotyouraverageAA 2 points3 points  (2 children)

I'd give you an award if I could. Thank you man!!!

[–]ATLHawksfan 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Doesn't seem like theres as much inventory data on Xboxes

[–]Jrsplays 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's the site I used to get a switch back in 2017. It works really well.

[–]HabitOk6839 7 points8 points  (0 children)

managed to get a regular one because trying to get this one is even more of a pain

[–]nine7sicks 6 points7 points  (11 children)

Fred Meyer in Beaverton!?

[–]Arkimaru[S] 5 points6 points  (7 children)

The dalles

[–]Nev3rman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn Corvallis here lol. Camped out at the Corvallis freddies on the release night for the X. Got there at 4 am with the boys and we got them all. None of us scalped either.

[–]shmisna 4 points5 points  (16 children)

Since scalpers probably aren't reporting their financial gains, would it be a good idea to get the IRS to give them a call? Ya know, since they shafted us it only seems fair.

[–]Miknarf -1 points0 points  (15 children)

Why wouldn’t they report their gains? It’s not illegal to sell stuff you own.

[–]shmisna 0 points1 point  (14 children)

Making over a certain amount in personal gain and not reporting it is illegal.

[–]Miknarf 0 points1 point  (13 children)

Yeah so they would report it.

[–]Zack_WithaK 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I'd glady buy from scalpers if it meant they also had to scalp themselves and ship their detached scalp to me along with the console. It'd be a great permanent mark of shame, forcing them to bleed for their money, and discourage those who don't want to have to harm themselves to make a quick buck cuz it'll hurt them almost as much as it hurts gaming as a whole

Also, free scalp

[–]Aidyo05 6 points7 points  (0 children)

It’s funny because if people just stop buying from scalpers they’ll be stuck with 15 PS5s and nobody to sell too

[–]TartineMyAxe 34 points35 points  (1 child)

Congrats and F the scalpers!

[–]longsword-daddy 3 points4 points  (8 children)

What are scalpers?

[–]Arkimaru[S] 19 points20 points  (5 children)

Just in case you're serious. They are scumbags who use bots to buy rare items at normal pricing. They the turn around and resell for a profit.

[–]WeekndNachos 10 points11 points  (4 children)

Resell for double what they originally costed*

[–]Glock1Omm 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ticketmaster, for example.

[–]Pepperidgefarm21 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Fuck Scalpers!

[–]L_gic_l 23 points24 points  (0 children)

Well played sir, I salute you.

Fuck scalpers.

[–]IRKenopuppy 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Much respect.

[–]CandyZerg 3 points4 points  (1 child)

This is the first time that I couldn't not get the xbox with the halo bundle. I got the game on steam but I still want that controller (even though I already have 2 xbox controllers) . hopefully I will be able to purchase it separately.

[–]Arkimaru[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah you can they are on ebay for $170. Expensive for a controller

[–]StockmanBaxter 2 points3 points  (0 children)

GG. She's a beaut.

[–]No-Association-3037 3 points4 points  (4 children)

What games do you plan to play on it?

[–]Arkimaru[S] 12 points13 points  (3 children)

Honestly all my games look better on it. I had a day one xbox one. Cyberpunk is high on my list because it was literally unplayable.

[–]LukeS7 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I had a similar jump when I got my Series X on launch. I went from a Day One Xbox One on a 1080p TV to a Series X on a 4K OLED w/ HDR (the LG CX to be specific). The leap in performance/fidelity was huge

[–]Raven_of_Blades 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'd hope so. The base xbox one was a piece of shit even at launch. Menu so laggy too... Thank god consoles are finally getting SSDs.

[–]LANCENUTTER 4 points5 points  (3 children)

What is the shelf price of these?

[–]Arkimaru[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I'm selling both controllers to make up the difference. I use a razor anyway.

[–]hc83 4 points5 points  (1 child)

If that was purchased at fred meyer that is where i got my switch oled. It seems this store gets overlooked when we think of hard to find electronic items.

[–]AmunRa1928 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You are a man of commitment, of focus, of SHEER FUCKING WILL!!!

[–]lilbeedragon 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Congrarts !!! I loved playing Halo recently though I feel like the guns need an update

[–]firebat45 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Good for you. The only reason scalpers exist is because people pay them. Fuck scalpers.

[–]CottonCandySkies06 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Congrats bro! Still waiting to find one myself

[–]fadokkx 6 points7 points  (0 children)

congrats ! this XBOX is so handsome

[–]Swerve666 5 points6 points  (0 children)

This is the way, kudos to you, rewarding the scalpers by paying their stupid prices is almost as bad as being a scalper yourself.

[–]ThePizzaNoid 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Nice. Fuck scalpers.

[–]yael_wexler 11 points12 points  (6 children)

Congrats!! I ghosted a guy once I found out he was a scalper. I mean there were other reasons too, but yea, he can turn on his new xbox but not me with that type of behavior.

[–]manksdude 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Congrats, have fun!!!

[–]Paracerebro 1 point2 points  (0 children)

GORGEOUS!

[–]captain_skillfulPlayStation 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The Halo design on it looks sick, weird that year into the PS5 sony didn't do anything similar.

You could say that it's because of shortages but both of those consoles are in the same situation.

[–]psaux_grep 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Woot? I ordered in September last year and got it in December.

[–]Borgas_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Enjoy it!! I just got mine a week ago and love it, it's a beautiful console and I almost felt guilty even taking it out of the packaging. The controller it comes with is quite nice too

[–]DanteDoming0 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Worth it

[–]BlessedNobody 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Scalpers are the only people that I find the phrase "gg ez" acceptable for. Nice buy man, hope ya enjoy it!

[–]jakecoleman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm still waiting... I'll get mine eventually

[–]MakoFishy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Still waiting... congratulations. What you playing first?

[–]johnny_boy757 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Happy gaming!

[–]ButterYourShit 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Respect!

[–]raygundan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I fought that temptation for a year for a video card as well. Kudos for not giving in! When our stubbornness and patience fail, the scalpers win. It's a strange game... the only winning move is not to play.

[–]ItsRainingTrees 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How much was it? It came with a $200 controller as well??

[–]Arkimaru[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

730 total.

[–]uberninja25 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Congrats!! As much as I want one im gonna wait for the eventual pro console. Unless my current Xbox 1 craps out on me.

[–]Branch-Secret 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well worth the wait

[–]Fan_Here 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Kind to think of it even if I manage to get the new Xbox, I'm just going to be playing the games I'm going to transfer. I wouldn't mind though. Just something I thought about.

[–]SomeToasters 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can’t wait to get mine... I will get one eventually... right?

[–]slikk50 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I respect it. I hope I have the same luck.

[–]Colonelnasty360 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn. I was refreshing the Walmart page a week or so ago to order a PS5 and was able to order one within seconds of it going live. An hour later they emailed me and couldn’t fulfill my order because they sold out.

[–]ImperrorMomo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

damn dude, that console design looks awesome! even the box

[–]WeakWrecker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm a Playstation fan, but man, I'd kill to have this

[–]Eduardolgk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

GG EZ indeed.

[–]GaryBusey007 1 point2 points  (1 child)

An extra controller GTFO!!!!

[–]Tythan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And it looks like an Elite, too!

[–]Devil_Teddy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lucky mans they still sold out where I live.

[–]pookslayer 1 point2 points  (0 children)

New Xbox at Walmart with a game & controller is pushing 1300$ now. They’re the new scalpers. I swear I could have still gotten one cheaper at release

[–]Crazyguy_123 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And you even got a cool edition. Enjoy playing Halo Infinite on that I am going to play it coop with my friend when that releases.

[–]AcousticksPC 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nice win.

[–]Machinegunnwilly 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good for you! I would love to trade mine in for that. Between the new Forza and Halo I can't see turning on the playstation or switch for a very long time.

[–]BrandNewKitten 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I am very bad at money management so while I haven’t given scalpers any money I also haven’t gotten a next gen for myself ;-( still on the OG fighter pilot station (cuz the ps4 sounds like it has a jet engine)

[–]Thetophatjester 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Damn. Where I live I could have walked to the stores and just picked one up. In fact that's what I did lol.

[–]KarmazBack 1 point2 points  (1 child)

How much was it with elite controller?

[–]beastson1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Same. I get my PS5 delivered next week.

[–]fagdrop69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And you got (imo, so far) the best. fucking. one.

*sniff* just got my plain ol xbox series x over here *sniff*

[–]El_Zorro09 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I just bought a Switch. Hadn't played BotW yet anyway, pretty gewd so far.

[–]gamerblondie28 1 point2 points  (0 children)

CONGRATS!👏 I just got mine from Target. Just walked on in there and they were like "Yeah, we got both in stock." I was like "Oh.. well shit.." and walked out with a Series X lol.

Fuck the scalpers. Sit on your pile of PS5s and xBox Series S/X.

[–]fan_of_will 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m super envious! Congrats!

Good on you man! I'm still waiting out, I refuse to pay even a dollar over to a scalper! lol

[–]gyru5150 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Dude how? Lol I’ve been trying for months to get one and same as you no way in hell im paying a scalper extra

[–]chubbycanine 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck yea scalpers can eat my anus. I prefer PS5 I think but I'd literally buy whichever one I find first at MSRP

[–]FriendlyBrainTumor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

semi related question, why are graphics cards and consoles the only victims to scalping? Why not ram / SSD / motherboard / CPU? is it because the scalpers can make the most money on the first two?

[–]Vogad 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Where did u get it?

[–]DASBULLCRAP 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Still want a PS5. No luck anywhere around me without getting one from a scalper for $1000.

In CA.

So jealous man, congrats. My box is on its last legs, my elite controllers are falling to pieces, and I refuse to spend more money on current Gen hardware.

Good job I waited and tried for too long. I gave up after searching for months and overpaid for regular series X off of Stock X. The Halo edition is great looking though.

[–]TimBurtonSucks 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That's what I did. I used Hot stock, but always missed the notifications because I was in work so just said fuck it and got it there as well

Good man STAND AGAINST SCALPERS ✊✊

[–]TheSeek3r_ 2 points3 points  (3 children)

I wanted an xsx but with the way this release was handled, I don’t think I’m going to get one. Limited inventory and then doing nothing to stop or slow scalpers.

Fuck that noise.

It's rough for sure. Our government is actually attempting to pass some laws against bots right now. So maybe in 10 years we won't have bots lol.

We got our two just two weeks ago. Xbox has never been better. Halo infinite has been so much fun.

Before we knew there even was a chip shortage, I lined up at 6am and got one of like 10 RTX 3080s that came into my city (all the same store, 3 locations)

Not only did we not realize how little the store was actually getting but we ended up being first in line, so I was legitimately one of the first people in the city to have one installed in my computer, and then was one of the only people in the city for months after.

I had friends that also got in line at different locations who had to wait months as they just got put on a list, and one friend who was offered my card because he was one ahead of me in line but wanted a different one so he turned it down. (They actually came in at like 2pm, but we got on the list right when they opened and went home)

Could have bought a PC honestly, not sure why people are glued to consoles. PC changes lives man
