There is a rumor that Walmart doesn’t have them and you are fighting for back orders. The idea is that every other retailer sold all they had in a few minutes but Walmart has enough to do 4 separate releases and it’s not believable. Amazon didn’t even have any that I saw and that’s crazy to me.Same here. Sony really screwed up this launch from the start, unfortunately. That Bloomberg article that said Sony had to cut production by half due to supply issues, seems totally believable now.
Walmart was a debacle today.
Heard reports of problems at target. Someone bought one and the store didn’t have stock to process it. Then another report of the site saying sold out and the store only sold 1 but had received 5.
Based on the forums I visited it seems that more actual gamers managed to get their hands on a series x than a ps5. A lot of scalpers have ps5 on eBay though. So it seems that a disproportionate number of scalpers got ps5 vs people who actually wanted one for themselves. Just what it seems like, I have no data to back it up.
