Can't really buy PS5 and SX as they sell out pretty fast.
Even in Japan, they had to call the police and tell people to go home when they re-stocked PS5 last month.

We're not at the point yet where supply has met demand. So they're pretty much selling at the pace they can manufacture.
And they're having trouble manufacturing them because there's a global silicon shortage.

And scalpers are making things worse.

Global silicon shortage affecting a ton of new products. From Consoles to PC components to Cars. The switch has had tons of stock while the ps5/series X are new products. I'd imagine if the Switch pro is real and it comes out with new tech during the shortage, that will also be hard to buy.

Most likely it will.

Yeah Series S is the only one available here too.

Further proves it is pointless. Not even when people can't get a Series X they will go for the Series S.

I wouldn't say they are pointless, Some people do want it but the majority wants the X. Just like some people want the switch light but more want the full switch. Microsoft just miscalculated the  demand split. 

What Microsoft should of done is look at Xbox one x vs xbox one s all diigital sales? People didn't like it but, Xbox series S is being sold but slower , they must of put more faith in series S design I'm guessing? Series S looks beautifull but, It's all digital. Like PS5 digital variant though that's full power so it gets a pass I guess not certain?

Cute and honest Sega Saturn fan, also noone should buy Sega grrrr, Sega for life.

I actually saw Xbox Series X out in the wild today, for the first time since launch.
