US retailer Best Buy on Tuesday opened orders for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S, with an early repopulation that offers the latest opportunity to buy the coveted game consoles. It looks like it will be one of the final chances to buy the devices before the holidays, as record demand sees global stock shortages. Orders were delivered at 9 AM ET / 8 AM CT / 6 AM PT, exclusively online through the Best Buy website.
The restock included both versions of the PS5, the standard console costing $ 499, while its disc-free Digital Edition console targets an RRP of less than $ 399. The Xbox Series X also costs $ 499, and the affordable Xbox Series S delivers the next generation from just $ 299. Various packages were also available, including accessories and games. But with a discount on all the latest consoles, you need to check your hours for any chance of success.

With high demand, Best Buy may have some issues with the entire order window.
The next generation in HD
Xbox Series S
Experience state-of-the-art games for less.
Microsoft serves the next generation for less with the help of the low-budget Xbox Series S. The console offers the same high-performance CPU and SSD technology as the Xbox Series X, while reducing the GPU and removing the hard drive.
The new PS5 and Xbox Series X parts have entered the market in recent weeks, both through Sony and Microsoft, as well as through third-party stores such as Walmart and GameStop. But this has not made them easier to find, with new consoles notoriously difficult to buy, amplified only by current world events. While the first round of pre-orders opened in September, the stock is not expected to be available for free until mid-2021, Tim Stuart, Xbox CFO, recently said the lack of Xbox is expected by April.
The PS5 is Sony’s latest flagship console, while the Xbox Series X is an equally capable device from Microsoft. Both launch with the promise of 4K resolution games, along with support for up to 120 frames per second (FPS) on certain titles. New features are also debuting, such as ray tracing and ultra-short charging times, forming as convincing devices for the coming years.
