    Morning folks. Just a quick heads up.
    I recall a discussion, on here, prior to Christmas about the new Xbox being totally impossible to get hold of. I was in the same boat as I really wanted to buy one for my 16 year old son for Xmas.
    Anyhow, it was an impossible task so I promised I would continue trying for him if he ‘does well with his GCSEs’ (bribery).
    Anyway, anybody still looking for one (not ideal with Xmas 5 months behind us or 7 months ahead of us) Argos, Barnsley have stock coming in on Tuesday.

    Ordered one in February direct from Microsoft it was here within 2 days at the time no one else had them. If you want one and haven't tried Microsoft have a look on there website.

    Shortage of microprocessors or sumat. That's what I read about the PS5 the other day anyway.

    Oh and best of luck to Joe on his GCSE's mate. He seems a smart lad, I'm sure he'll do you proud!

    If you download Telegram and sign up to stock informer you get a message as soon as a store gets stock in.

    I managed to get the Xbox X and PS5 that way.

    Yes, every industry from cars to fridges, Planes to Consoles uses them.

    I was extremely lucky to get a PS5 pre-ordered when Game put them out for sale on the night of the ps5 reveal. You had about 5 minutes to get through the process that night rather than the 1 minute you seem to get now.

    You also have to ask the question, are you playing on 4K with the Xbox? If not then the series s is perfectly fine for a full hd TV and it's a damn sight easier to get hold of.
    In regards drops, I made myself a member of the stockdrops discord and you can choose what alerts you get for what products. I used it for graphics cards drops but also have alerts for Xbox and ps5

    As I work for the NHS I managed to bag a PS5 through the VIVUP scheme last year, it was impossible otherwise.

    I ordered my PS5 from Game.co.uk , otherwise it was almost impossible to get one , so you can try getting the xbox series x from there if that helps , good luck.

    Went for my booster jab the week before Xmas, wandered into Game to get my mate's lad a present, got to the till and they had some PS5's in stock. So I bought one on the spot.
