It has been over two long years of stock updates, consoles selling out instantly and people being upset, but as of this moment, both the PS5 and Xbox Series X have been in stock on Amazon for over a week, which for me at least, marks the end of the great stock next-gen shortage of 2020-2022.
You can grab the PS5 right HERE and the Xbox Series X right HERE. Naturally, I bet seconds after I post this, one or both of them will sell out, but even if that does happen, I feel like at this point in time, we can be confident in the fact that it will come back in stock in the next week or so, and at least stay in stock for days, if not weeks, instead of seconds or minutes like we’ve seen over the last two years.
This is a great thing as we see next-gen exclusive games such as Gotham Knights, Scorn and A Plague Tale: Requiem release in the next week in what is no doubt going to become more of a common occurrence. There’s obviously God of War: Ragnarok releasing in a few weeks too. With Christmas coming up, it’ll be interesting to see if we do see a bit of a shortage coming up again.
I feel like we’ll always remember how hard it’s been to get a next-gen console in the last few years, and it’ll be interesting to see how that effects upcoming releases such as the PlayStation VR2 and new Nintendo Switch. Just this week we saw RTX 4090s sell out extremely quickly despite their price tag of over $2,000 which is less than what 3080s were reselling for in the months following its launch. It’s absolutely going to create a new level of demand for these devices that we’ll likely see for years to come, but for now at least, hopefully it’s over for the great next-gen shortage.
