    Argos were not online at midnight and sold out by the time I woke up.

    Looks like I’m waiting for the second boatload….

    Do we think real stock shortage or Sony releasing progressively to generate a bit of publicity and general hype?

    Will MS do the same given they are all about flogging All Access package – maybe limited stock if you want to buy console only but plenty for subscribers?

    I love a new gen console battle – I’m definitely going to have to get one so I can join in the general fanboi arguments.

    I don’t think they’ll hold back any, it’s clear there’s a huge demand, the question is whether another big shipment will arrive this year. Not sure when that would get confirmed

    Managed to get a digital one (me) and disc one (present) from Argos (stayed up until 1am, gave up and gave it a half-hearted check at 6am and lucked out).

    In terms of big retailers left to pre-order from, John Lewis haven’t released their allocation yet so worth checking there regularly.

    I also ordered a couple from Scan (whilst waiting for Argos and starting to panic :p ) but I don’t think they have an allocation though as it said they were guaranteed to be fulfilled on release. Going to cancel that shortly though now my Argos order has gone through

    They sold out in the early hours.

    Just had an email from a supplier to say I have a slot booked to order one in an hour. 👍🏼

    Well there’s only 16k in front of me, John Lewis has another brief stock but sold out just as I reached payment.

    It’s a good time to be releasing the new consoles. Lots of us spending more time at home – so more time and money for gaming.

    there will be more arriving in the US. Over here, with brexit potentially adding difficulty? I’d be surprised.. I wonder if physical shops will even be open to collect consoles from?

    I to buy an Xbox for my boys. Had promised them one earlier this summer when they completed an achievement chart thing… then discovered that you couldn’t actually buy one. I think the new Xbox pre-orders are today but I can’t see them on the Microsoft website. And I’m worried after reading the PlayStation stuff above. How do I ensure that I get one?

    Microsoft and Argos sites failing for me. Currys I’m in an hour long queue. Can’t find it on John Lewis or Amazon. Aargh!

    Edit: Panic over – got one from the Microsoft website.

    Amazon says currently unavailable which is annoying, got a voucher from my last job i want to spend on it.

    Error on payment screen on MS store 🙁

    I’m tempted with an Series X but the offer where you just pay a little each month rather than $750 outright.

    I was all set to get a Project Scorpio on launch but I decided against it last min – have managed w/o a console since then. Also guess there will be some PS Pro or Xbox One X deals with games when they try and shift old stock so bargains to be had?

    I might treat myself too.

    My problem is more logistical really, I rarely have the time to play games now, I’d love to, but I can’t imagine ever getting much screen time on the ‘big telly’ without someone tutting away in the background.

    …and the “can you turn down the killing please?”

    My missus is one of these, in bed by 9 type people, so big tv’s mine (muhaahahahaaaa)

    Don’t worry about shortages. It happens with every single console that comes out. There’s always a panic coming up to Christmas. It’s in the “how to launch a console 101” guidebook.

    S seems easy to get perhaps because it’s not the next gen.

    Seems Amazon are all sold out now. Will wait until the next batch where ever it turns up. Also figured its best to see what games are coming out before committing first too. Apart from nba2k I can’t see much for me.

    My order for a series X on MS store was processed through after a few hours. I think they may have flogged a few today
