New PS5 & Xbox Series X/S Pre-Christmas Stock Dropping at Best Buy

If you're still yet to get your hands on a next-gen console, Best Buy has a range of PS5 and Xbox Series X/S consoles dropping on December 15.

The PS5 and Xbox Series X are two of gaming's most difficult to get hold of products at the moment. With thousands of gamers looking to buy their next-gen hardware, it's almost impossible to come across one before a bot snatches it up.

The scalping problem is so severe that one console scalper group has over 3500 PS5s to-date. Thankfully, we've got a way for you to beat scalpers to your next-gen console.

You should definitely harness every advantage you can when it comes to Best Buy's new pre-Christmas stock of PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles. The major retailer announced today that it would be putting more devices on sale very shortly.

We expect the Xbox to stay in stock longer, as PS5 console sales continue to dominate the market. However, this may only be a few seconds longer at most.

Where to Find a PS5 and Xbox Series X/S Restock Before Christmas

In one of the very last chances to get a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S before Christmas, Best Buy has another wave of stock to sell. The retailer promises fans that hope is not lost this festive period.

The consoles will all be sold online only, with curbside pickup for those wanting to get hold of their new unit. There's no point heading into Best Buy in person until you've acquired your console online.

According to a new tweet from Best Buy, the retailer will be kicking off the next PS5 and Xbox Series X/S sales "sometime after" 8 AM CT / 9 AM ET / 6 AM PT on December 15.

Those who want to get hold of a next-gen console before Christmas will want to be ready on the Best Buy website at this time. However, if you don't find the consoles at first, keep refreshing regularly.

This isn't the only place that's likely to have consoles either. Over the last month, new Xbox stock has been flickering at this site.

It appears that Best Buy's console stock may not be coming exactly on the hour. From past experience on the PS5's shocking launch day, some retailers have been over a full hour late with their release, only to drop it when others have already moved on.

If you miss out tomorrow, don't worry. We have confirmation that more PS5 stock is coming before the end of the year.

But with criminals performing Fast and Furious-style heists into moving trucks to steal PS5s, it's harder to come across the consoles than ever.

Be sure to check in regularly, as we're covering all the new PS5 and Xbox Series X stock leaks as and when they come in.
