It looks like Best Buy could be having a number of members-only PS5 and Xbox Series X restocks this holiday season, but this isn’t good news…
It’s been near impossible to purchase a next-gen console, PS5 or Xbox Series X, since they launched in November last year. Irregular restocks are the only way that gamers can buy them and, even then, they sell out in minutes.
However, it looks like one major retailer could be making this problem even worse. Best Buy could be making some PS5 and Xbox Series X restocks members-only.
What’s worse, gamers will have to pay a hefty price to get access to these holiday season stock drops.
If you’re looking for a next-gen console, be sure to check out the last time the PS5 and Xbox Series X was restocked at every major retailer:

Best Buy Totaltech Members Only PS5 & Xbox Series X Stock Drops?
We recently reported why there is a stock shortage of PS5 & Xbox Series X consoles, however, Sony and Xbox have different expectations on when the consoles will be readily available.
Despite this, it’s almost certain that Best Buy will restock the PS5 and Xbox Series X over this holiday season. This could be part of its new Totaltech membership, however.
While no specific products are mentioned, Best Buy says that Totaltech members will have “exclusive access to some of the most popular hard-to-find products”. This likely means next-gen consoles and maybe even graphics cards.
Unfortunately for gamers who are desperate to get a PS5 or Xbox Series X, a Best Buy Totaltech membership doesn’t come cheap. In fact, it costs $200 per year!
Let’s hope that Best Buy doesn’t limit next-gen console restocks for Totaltech members. Not everyone can afford the $200 extra.
