UPDATE: PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles have now sold out
GameStop will selling PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles online on Wednesday.
The US retailer confirmed the stock availability in a message sent to customers including Twitter user Wario64.
“A very limited number of Xbox Series X/S, PS5 Physical and PS5 Digital consoles will be available today—online only—and will go live soon,” it said.
“Be sure to clear your cart, get logged in and be ready to go.
“If you’re not able to get one, please know we’ll continue to notify you when more consoles are available.”
UPDATE: GameStop has now sold out of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: When they’re made available, which is expected to be by 11am PT / 2pm ET, you’ll hopefully be able to attempt to purchase one of the sought after consoles through the following links:
PS5 reportedly outsold Xbox Series X/S by more than 2 to 1 during the first three months of 2021, while Nintendo Switch outsold both its rivals combined.
That’s according to research from data and analytics firm Ampere Analysis, which suggests Sony sold through 2.83 million units to consumers during the first calendar quarter.
Sony recently confirmed that 3.3 million PS5 consoles were shipped in the three months to March 31, with supply constrained by parts unavailability that could result in PS5 shortages until 2022.
According to Ampere, Xbox Series X/S consoles sold a combined total of 1.31 million units in the first quarter of 2021.
Microsoft didn’t provide Xbox Series X/S shipment figures with its earnings results for the quarter, only noting that hardware revenue was up 232 percent year-over-year “driven by continued demand” for the new consoles, which it expects to be in short supply until at least June 2021.
Nintendo sold 5.86 million Switch consoles during the first quarter, according to Ampere, up 12% compared to Q1 2020.
