PS5 And Xbox Series X Will Be Sold In Best Buy Stores September 23
This week, Best Buy hosts a very rare occurrence: in-person sales of current-gen consoles.
If you've been following news of the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S, you know that the consoles are still extremely difficult to find in stock. While retailers have been selling a handful of consoles online per week, they've been even rarer at physical stores. Best Buy will be changing that beginning September 23, however.
Best Buy will have stock of the Xbox Series X and the disc drive version of the PS5 in stores on Thursday, September 23, which will be for the first time in over a month. The retailer confirmed this with a listing on its website the day before.
"Limited quantities" of Xbox Series X and both versions of the PS5 will be available. However, the Xbox Series S is not listed, and not every store is participating.
The current generation of consoles has faced a challenging combination of low stock and high demand, driven in large part by worldwide microchip shortages and ongoing logistics difficulties stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic. Retailers tend to put units on sale seemingly randomly, and bots and scalpers have further added to the low stock. For more information on how to navigate the labyrinthian processes for buying the consoles, be sure to check our PS5 guide and Xbox Series X|S guide.
