GameStop regularly offers limited packs of PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles for purchase online, but in-store sales of the sought-after consoles have been much more limited.
At the end of September, US retailer Best Buy sold limited quantities of PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles in stores for the first time this year, drawing large queues to many places.
Last week, market research firm NPD Group said the PS5 ended Nintendo Switch’s long streak as the best-selling console in the U.S. market.
Prior to September, Nintendo’s console was the top-selling console in the United States for a record 33 consecutive months based on units sold.
But the PS5 took home the unit and dollar sales price last month after Sony was able to make “a lot” of the limited-offer console available to consumers, according to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella.
Despite some recent signs of increased availability, the PS5 is expected to remain difficult to find for some time, given the lingering challenges caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Consumers based in the United States who wish to purchase a PS5 console can now register their interest directly with Sony for the chance to do so. The company is making a limited number of PS5 consoles available for customers in the United States to purchase directly from PlayStation this holiday season.
