With their incredible exclusives and announcements, Microsoft convinced me to buy their newest console.
"I bought an Xbox Series X right after E3 2021." Where from? please share so we can get one also
I get emails from Gamestop with specific dates and times of the restocks. Im surprised more arent signed up for those. That is how I got the PS5 and Series S (and soon a Series X).
I am all for freedom of opinions but I must ask: Why did you get a Series S when you are also getting a Series X?
^^I get asked that a lot but my answer is really simple. I game in more than one room. I currently have the S in the living room to use for media streaming and playing my digital library and GP games. It is there because it is small and inconspicuous. My game room is where the PS5 is along with a One X for all the disc based games. That one will be replaced with the Series X and then my One X will go on the shelf next to the others.
Do you have to be signed up for GameStop’s membership to get notified when the X is in stock?
We do not have a Gamestop here in the UK, you can get notifications from Game, but their website is that poor and slow, by the time you have it in your basket they are out of stock again lol. I already have an X, but i know a few friends are trying and slowly getting hold of them.
@Aaron... that im not sure of but I have been a rewards member for a while so I think at least you just have to opt in to receive their marketing emails. i know how people feel about GS, I dont trade in to them myself. i only buy when I see a good deal and that adds you to their email list if you have bought from their website. Although recently they announced they were going to have limited systems in store for both PS5 and X|S and I was tempted to take one of my One S in to trade. It would have taken $150 off the X price but my local stores ran out. I tried 3 different ones. One store said they only had like 4 units each so yeah they went fast. You can at least sign up to receive their promotions and the restock emails count towards that so best of luck.
Amazon Canada has had Xbox series X/S in stock all day today
It seems today is a drop day (restock) as GS announced they had them as well. So lets see how long it lasts.
Darth That's good man hopefully both companies can get their production in order so more gamers can get them. These scalpers are getting out of hand man. People on Facebook have sold 20+ next generation consoles at a premium
Amazon has them here in the U.S. too, but not at MSRP. You can pick Series X up, for just $999. I can get a PS5 for $1200. I have had my Series X since January. I got lucky.
Just got an email that GS has Series X through All Access. So go go go... https://www.gamestop.com/vi...
I just checked that link: https://www.gamestop.com/vi... There are still units available if anyone wants to get one.
Some countries have better stock than others. And some stores let you reserve it for an upfront cost. That's how I got mine close to launch.
Find someone on Twitter that is tweets on restock and set them up on your phone so you get a push notification for every one of their tweets. That is how I ended up getting a PS5 from Best Buy.
I am not sure how smart it is to see an E3 and go out and even want to buy an XB. Personally, I do "research" before i go and blow $500 USD.
Maybe because they were interested in the games shown at E3? I mean, that is why anyone buys any console right?
Buying a series X didn't cross my Mind at all after ms's E3... However, I was impressed with all the day 1 gamepass releases! It's Better to just subscribe to gamepass no?
Same. I'm still not sure what about their E3 that everyone is so enamored with but to each their own. We still don't know what the hell Starfield is. Halo MP looked...OK I guess. Flight Simulator is pretty but my God ZZZZzzzzzzz. Forza Horizon looked really good and I would play that but aside from that, everything they have revealed that remotely interests me is still YEARS away. By 2023 the XSX might be worth getting but NOW? Ha! No way.
Sign up for PowerUp Rewards, Gamestop gives dibs to those who have it!
Best bet is to check major retails everyday and follow re stock twitter accounts. Grabbed mine from Walmart when they were announcing re stock about a day ahead sometimes.
I’m thinking about selling my Series X. It’s collecting dust and all see is more Forza and Halo this holiday. I enjoy playing PS5 more. Much better games and a more interesting lineup.
You’ll have no problem selling it - that thing is in crazy high demand. Heck I’ll buy it if you’re in the states and selling at/near MSRP - hit me up.
It's not hard to have demand for something when so little is being made.
@Rimeskeem Yep which is why Xbox Series and PS5 are both sold out. During normal times this console shortage wouldn’t be a thing.
You're such a narcissist to think anyone cares about your fanboy opinion. It's pathetic to see you on every article posting biased and useless comments like anyone respects or values anything you have to say.
“You're such a narcissist to think anyone cares about your fanboy opinion. It's pathetic to see you on every article posting biased and useless comments like anyone respects or values anything you have to say.” You're triggered that I might sell my Series X because it’s collecting dust? I’ve been enjoying Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart and playing my PS5 much more so it seems like the logical thing to do.
Calm down love.
Imagine coming to the internet and believing people actually care or respect your opinion. I think that's your problem, you believe people say things on the internet because they want respect or value. Some just like looking at responses and thinking how stupid someone is for getting triggered at something worthless.
Imagine coming to an article where someone is spreading their opinion on why they bought something that doesn’t affect any of our lives. And getting mad at someone who gave their opinion on an opinion article for saying he’s thinking of selling his device that has no effect on any of us. Like you really got happy for one opinion and mad for another. You have a lot of energy you didn’t need to people you will never meet.
Jin, your salt is real. Do you actually think that any regular or semi regular N4G reader can't see through your lies. It's so cringe. What on earth are you trying to achieve
“Jin, your salt is real. Do you actually think that any regular or semi regular N4G reader can't see through your lies.” Care to explain?
@Jin You see Forza and Halo, i saw Starfield, Stalker 2, Hellblade 2, Sea of Thieves, Flight simulator, 12 minutes, outer worlds 2, hell i'm keeping mine!!!
Seconded, i will pick up a PS5 once time and funding (and availability) allows, so then i have the best of everything.
“You see Forza and Halo, i saw Starfield, Stalker 2, Hellblade 2, Sea of Thieves, Flight simulator, 12 minutes, outer worlds 2, hell i'm keeping mine!!!“ Hellblade 2 and Outer Worlds 2 are a long ways off. Starfield is late 2022 assuming it doesn’t get delayed. The big games this year is more Forza and Halo.
DJSnotty @@Jin said "its collecting dust"..... you point out games that are months and months away from release some 18 months away and after delays it'll be much longer that's a lot more dust to collect before you see a Xbox next gen game release. So for those that want a Xbox series console what's the point when you have no reason to use it? None! at least Sony has given games that the ps5 user can only play on a PS5. So when is that first next gen Xbox First Party game releasing? Forza Horizon 5 is not it, Sea of Thieves crossover nope! Halo multiplayer not it these games you mentioned are on the lesser Xbox consoles not in anyway next gen so when ... How much longer do these people gotta wait?.... Or is it wait till E3 2022?
Don't forget Psychonauts 2, Redfall, The Ascent, Replaced, Sommerville, Atomic Heart and Anacrusis. So many and all the announcements weren't made. More to come.
Sell it, and stop bashing every Xbox article. I honestly doubt you even have Series X. Looking at your comment history, it is pretty clear you wouldn't buy one to begin with.
After reading your comment history, I'm inclined to agree with the above - I doubt you have spent $500 on an Xbox. Feel free to prove me wrong - my inbox is open - send me a picture with my username handwritten.
Why do they have to prove anything to you?
He doesn’t, but similarly no one needs to believe he spent $500 on a console he detests.
Yeah Xbox E3 actually further motivated me to wait to purchase XSX, till probably early 2023. Starfield may push me sooner if not delayed, and there’s some seriously interesting titles coming after that. But that show cemented zero reason to upgrade from the 1X until then for me.
Youre crazy still gaming on the 1X when Series X is a ridiculous upgrade for your current games. I had a hard time finding a Series X at launch, so I continued playing things like Cyberpunk and AC Valhalla on the 1X. Then I got lucky at Gamestop and scored a Series X bundle. I was utterly shocked at the difference! In generations past, its been just a slight incremental difference at first. But with Series X, the upgrade is unreal! Even for a game like Cyberpunk. That is not X/S enhanced yet, but it looks and plays 10x better. AC Valhalla on the other hand, which is X/S upgraded, WOW what a difference! It just looks so much better, plays so much smoother, and loads 100x faster! You will not regret the upgrade!
More power to you. Definitely sell it if you aren't using it. No need for dust collectors. I know several people that would take it off your hands and get some use out of it. I felt similar about my PS5 before Ratchet and Clank came out. But now that I am done with it, it will sit until the next Sony exclusive. I don't want to bother with selling it though because I know there are games coming out in the future i don't want to miss out on. If you don't like Halo or Forza, i can completely understand why you wouldn't want to keep it. Unfortunately Halo is sort of my thing, so can't sell mine.
You can't sell what you don't own to start with.
Plenty of people attempt to, though 😂
Yeah, those games don’t interest everyone. I’d sell it too if it didn’t have games I wanted. Why’d you buy it in the first place?
This is probably the best question of the bunch.
Who buys a console at/near launch and then decides to sell it before its even been on the market for 2 years? At least, you'll have no problem making your money back, but seems pointless to not wait until at least 2 years in to see how things are going.
I'll buy it from you It's funny though how you bought it knowing nothing that interested you was out at the time, now that games are bout to start rolling in you wanna sell it 😂. Like wtf? It's like starting a business during lock down then when the pandemic starts to end and business can finally open, you wanna sell it cause you see no potential to make money lmao.
@jinsakai... Just did the opposite with same logic 😁
So you buy Xbox after Xbox for years has only had and Forza... Only to be surprised it has Halo and forza again for your to sell it before they release? You my friend are slightly slow in the head.
I actually owned a ps5 and choose to sell it. Sony didn't support Atmos or dolby vision and the fact it had weaker hardware means multiplats are going to be worse. Sony ignores high end gamers to save money and not pay a cent to Dolby.
Sell it. No need to hold when so many want to play and enjoy.
Oh look, another poorly thought-out opinion piece by Morgan Lewis and his continued attempts to tear down Sony. This time he wrote an entire opinion piece praising XBox just so he could attack Sony. I guess the PS5's massive success and that it is outselling his beloved Nintendo Switch gets us these gems - "Sony has not shown any reason to own the console at this point though" and "Nintendo sold gamers on their hardware. Sony has yet to do this. They fail to evolve when every other hardware company continues to."
Outselling Switch? Is it?
Yes, it is. The PS5 is the fastest selling console ever in the United States, in both units and dollars. https://n4g.com/news/241241...
The Switch has still been outselling the PS5 in unit numbers in the US for all but maybe one month since the PS5 released. However, even though that is true, the PS5 is selling at a quicker rate than the Switch (or any other console) did at launch. So, depending on your time reference for "outselling", either way is right. Switch is outselling PS5 currently. PS5 is outselling Switch relative to period of availability.
Switch is the best seller. Check your facts fam
@Banthis people don't like real facts here, rather alternate truths.
Ah, you did not say US, nor 1 region weekly sales though, nor launch windows time period, you simply said PS5 is outselling Switch. Which is false, unless PS5 is already at over 80 million consoles sold? As opposed to region by region, maybe, but that is a bad way to twist something to fit a narrative, just go by facts, it is easier.
you are right they arent very good in math. They dont understand if the PS5 is selling more then the PS4 that got 115 or 120 milions consoles... and its not just 200k more like them with the flop of last gen...
Well, I own both and I can honestly say the new Ratchet and Clank IS reason to own a PS5! That game is crazy good! However, I still prefer my series X at this point. Gamepass gives me so many options to play Series X enhanced games at little cost, so I just gravitiate towards that more often than my PS5. But like I said, I cannot put R&C down until I complete it! Im only 30% but I am having a blast! Looks great, plays even better! Both are great systems and as gamers we are in for one hell of a great generation! I cannot stress enough that you just have to own both this gen! Hell, with the money saved from not purchasing games on Series X due to gamepass, you could easily afford a ps5. Thats how I justified it.
Well those CGI trailers and same old games sure were incredible. Those would definitely make a normal person spend 500 or more bucks and definitely not a corporate shill who probably didn’t even buy the console.
I have the PS5 and the XSX, so far all I have played on the PS5 are the same ol’ games. R&C, and Miles. They look better but they’re the same ol’ games as their previous entries in the franchises.
Same old games? Miles Morales is literally a stand alone expansion for a brand new IP. You’re also ignoring Returnal. Don’t sit here and act like those are in the same vein as Halo and Forza. Sony definitely has some long standing franchises, but they’re also providing new experiences as well. This is how it’s always been. The same can’t be said for MS and I hope that’s about to change.
Sea of Thieves is real game play. Forza Horizon 5 is real game play. Flight Sim is real game play. Yes Outer Worlds 2 is 99% fake CGI. Several new IP are announced. I guess you didn't even bother to follow the actual E3 presentation.
I started playing Sea of Thieves yesterday, only did the Maiden voyage tutorial but my gosh is it boring so far. Going to keep going of course, not fair to judge on the tutorial. But not sure what the hype is about yet.
