Buy one PlayStation 5 Standard or Digital Edition (no disc player) is a near impossible task. Even more so is getting a Xbox Series X. In the heat of Christmas gift season, neither Sony’s next-generation console nor the more powerful version of Microsoft’s machine can be found in online stores. Much less in physical stores. But for those who are attentive to the few replenishments of stock, we give you some tips to increase your chances to get hold of these devices.

Remember, they are VERY LIMITED units and registration will close once the quota is exhausted.
In the case of PlayStation 5Last week, the chain of stores GAME opened a form for reservations of PS5 with Blu-ray reader, warning that “very limited” units will arrive. In just an hour and a half reported the closure of the form. Even so, those who signed up do not yet know when they will have the console in their homes. In the case of Xbox Series X, on December 7 stock was replenished in the official Microsoft Store. In about 10 minutes ran out the units available.
We have stock available again from the #XboxSeriesX!
As has been the case since the launch of both consoles, speculators are taking advantage of the situation. PlayStation 5 is resold on portals such as Wallapop Y eBay for prices that fluctuate between 700 and 1000 euros, when the official price of the standard model is 499.99 euros. The same goes for Xbox Series X on both of them portales: users are selling it for ms of 600 euros, sometimes exceeding 800. But there are methods to avoid having to resort to these websites.
There are Telegram groups dedicated to video game offerings that, due to the shortage of next-gen consoles, also notify when stock is replenished of PS5 and Xbox Series X in some store. The channels that we recommend are dedicated to that exclusively, except for some very succulent offer in games and / or accessories for PlayStation and Xbox.
It is the most effective method because the notification goes directly to the phone or PC and if you see the message quickly, chances are good that you will get a of the machines (although it will also happen to you many times that they remove them from your hands while you pay). It is a tough process, but be strong.
