Pretty sure no legitimate buyer has a chance at these. My wife was waiting on the Nintendo Switch consoles to come live. As soon as she saw the ADD to Cart pop up it was gone, lol. The scalpers and bots are putting the hurt on Christmas gifts. I got lucky and scored a xbox at BB this weekend at 8am. At least BB makes you get an email sent to verify your not a bot before completing your order.

40 seconds in gf and I either got error adding to cart or some stupid deer pun.


On the plus side all the able minded programmers too lazy to work a real job so they just found a niche to leech off society will really be making a nice 5 weeks salary gouging families so be thankful.

Whatever my kids aren't *that* good. They don't "need" a PlayStation:D

My neighbor scored one last week on a 9pm wal-mart drop. He said it was about 10 after 9. I posted that before. It may be wise to keep checking for a while. Sometimes Wal-Mart has some stock that gets freed up a little later.

I completely forgot they were dropping xbox as well. I feel like I've been making a comedy of errors with this whole thing.

Oh, deer. Temporarily out of stock in 2 minutes.
2 minutes? More like 2 milliseconds.

Bots decremented the stock count to zero before your page even refreshed.

Walmart is fail. You can't announce a drop date and expect everyone to play fair. Humans don't stand a chance.

Didn't get one. Best I ever got was an order cancellation from Kohl's and they gave $180 in Kohl's cash that I could keep.

That’s how I got mine. Just kept trying to checkout and when they finally released more I just clicked place order.

It's probably more fair to the humans to tell them when to check. Bots can keep checking 24/7, people don't stand any chance if they don't know when to look.

farting around with one in cart now

Got all the way to place order several times. It made me re-enter credit card info, etc. Then, no dice.

You have a Bluetooth TV remote? I must be really behind on TV. Still rocking 1080p Sony Bravia KDL-46Z5100.
I have you beat. I'm still rocking a 50" Panasonic Plasma 720P. Picture and color depth look great still, just its "low res" by today's standards.

I was on and had availability, able to add to my cart right at 7pm cst.. Cart kept erroring out.. then got a message after 5 minutes that it was back temporarily out of stock.. I went to the site maybe 30 minutes later on a whim and picked one up with no issues.. bizzare.

You can, but it's not easy. I got my PS5 through Walmart, but it took 4 times to do it. I was ready to go with it in my cart on the 4th drop of the day and had all my checkout payment info ready as well. I got lucky on the launch of XSX at the MS Store and got one there. I'm still completely SOL on 3080s.

That was exactly what I did, except when I made it to the place order screen about 5 times, it errored out until it went truly out of stock.

Same here. While everyone is going crazy over 6800 series week after launch they don't realize how hard it is to still get ampere lol. I really tried to get ampere for a month and gave up. I will just get either 6800xt or 6900xt whatever I can get my hands on at this point. Now if its around when 3080 20GB model is out then that makes things more exciting. But I am sure I won't be able to grab that right away rofl. I just don't want anything below 16GB at this point. That's just my preference not up for debate lol.

I'm just going to wait until January/February until I try again to get an Ampere card. I'll keep my focus on trying to get a PS5 for now.

Best Buy has the Xbox series x/s available for purchase right now
"
This item is not in your cart yet.

Due to high demand, we're having everyone go through one more step before it can be added.

Please try again."

But nothing to "go through" for me. What is the extra step? no pop ups, no captcha, nothing. WTF BB?

Tried to get the Series S. Clicked add to card and have been waiting for their "extra step" for a solid couple minutes now. 5 minutes in, Still waiting...

Edit: OOS for XSX. Shocker

Edit2: Allowed me to add the XSS to my cart. Made me choose stores all over the place and none of them had availability. Why on earth did you let me add it to my cart then?! 😡

I actually got in on the Best Buy thing this morning. Snagged a Series S for my 1080p bedroom tv.

Yeah, I got a Series S yesterday at BB for pickup at a nearby location for December 3rd. However, I've been hearing (at cheapassgamer) that those dates have been pushed back before so I am not holding my breath.

EDIT: and I went on a quest today for an X - no luck despite some brickseek help. Not sure I can do an S long term. Gotta have the best!! :)

It doesn't have to be. Now days some tv remotes can take over an HDMI device. I think it has to do with HDMI. Like my Samsung Tv remote can control Amazon Fire tv and shit lol.

I'm pretty sure it's what nkd said. I have lg cx. Grats on the system nkd

There was an Xbox Series S cyberpunk 2077 bundle on gamestop tonight that lasted for over 10 minutes. Anyone get in on that?

I didn't even post it because I assumed you either wouldn't be able to add it to cart or it would be gone in 30 seconds. Not the case.

Yeah, I saw that the X was even up for a good amount of time on GameStop last night. Crazy. I know there's a huge drop this week everywhere (NewEgg has been hinting at it).

Unfortunately for those that want it by Christmas, unless you pay for overnight, it is a roll of the dice that you will receive it by then. The carriers are absolutely getting crushed.
