    Just increase the price 50%. And people should start gathering and beating up scalpers too.

    They are available in the US periodically, just have to keep an eye out for the major stores like Target, Best Buy.

    Gotta have that new tech! Which is funny because there are almost no games out built from scratch for the new console. Kinda cool that older titles get a boost, but I don't think people should spend too much time trying to get on board right now. I snagged a Series S as a counterpart to my PC. It's fun, but you're not missing much.

    Which I mention and is kinda the the whole point of my post;). To tell people not to stress trying to get one. It's not worth the effort right now from my experience. However, I'll admit that I tend to be an early adopter in light of reason, so you got me.

    It's all bs... Microsoft fake news because no one wants their console. You can find it everywhere in my country because no one wants it... Everyone wants ps5 but can't get even one...

    Obviously without a decent user-base, then, it's just easier for devs to just offer backwards compatibility with PS5/XSX rather than make a dedicated PS5/XSX version. That'll change in time.

    However, I suspect that most people wouldn't even realise their next-gen console was running bc-mode unless you told them. Especially with resolution increases and higher frame-rates as the bog-standard basics they put in for "support".

    talked to a guy from neonet,their supply actually IS low,they're really not getting a lot of them.
    I think what viperanaf said above is true,the demand is low.

    it's a shame cause it's actually a really nice console,but go look for next gen xsx games and you'll have the answer.

    There are more than few shops that have them ready even today ( or tomorrow) . Supply is low but it seems demand is not that high either . Just look at GPU market - this is new level of nightmare.

    What country? In US, demand is high, can't get them anywhere. I want one right now and they are simply unavailable.

    In the USA you are not getting one unless you hit the lottery. Or spend 24/7 of your life hunting it down.

    No thanks. I'd rather be outside running or hiking.

    I guess EU is on luckier side this time around. Got my Radeon 6800 first day , all my friends (anyone who wanted) have xbox x or ps5 first day . I can imagine pain around the world ...but here in EU if you actually wanted you got it , if you waited for prices to fall down or something like that , you are out of luck ... GPUs are sold out ...

    it's villages
    and towns
    and cities

    I don't think the supply is better here relative to population.it's just a ps5 country.like texas is red.
