Default Trying to get an x box series x

So they are out of stock EVERYWHERE! and we heard that Curry's were getting them in today for online purchase at 1pm. Managed to get onto the website straightaway but only to find there were 1159 people ahead of me in the queue. Bloody ridiculous.

Waited for just under an hour and then was told they'd sold out so I'd queued for nothing. This is very poor customer service imo.

I suppose it'll be after Christmas before we get one now. Microsoft not ensuring that supply meets demand

I wouldn’t say poor customer service, more like high in demand to the public

what Kate means is there should be a simple metric to say sorry we have 1120 in the queue and only 1000 units, you can wait in case people drop out but be aware

It got me thinking... I wonder if there is a service where you can rent a console.

Yes. That's a lot better than how I put it thanks LT. I felt it was badly organised.

Scalpers are buying up new stock within minutes of launch sadly. We have an insider at Littlewoods and they launched PS5 stock that sold out in 45 seconds... Which means its not genuine individuals, its teams of people buying them all up for profit. Sad situation.

6 weeks is ambitious to be honest, I would say 10 at least, I don't expect there to be reliable stock until February. For PS5 at least you might have more luck with Xboxsx

You can probably get it cheaper after Christmas.

I think i read somewhere that there is a bot type thing people use to buy them all straight away which makes it hard for genuine people wanting one, I won't be buying a PS5 till next summer when I can afford to and it will hopefully be cheaper or ill be able to get a better deal on it
