Seems resonable enough

I agree. It takes a few weeks for consoles to ship around the world and we know the Series S isn't selling out in places like Europe. At least nowhere near as fast as the Series X or PS5.

For all its is worth it is also not sold out in Brazil as well, the Series X, PS5 normal and digital all sell out in hours when once a month a batch shows up

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

There are plenty of OLED consoles here in Australia too!!

Watch out, you will be attacked.

And for some really strange reason, after plenty of months of being in stock, the Xbox Series S is out of stock everywhere.

Well, I come from a very small country (Switzerland), generally speaking, the Switch OLED is sold out here but I have experience in finding hard to find items in general: go to smaller cities/towns, the shops there usually have one or two exemplars left. I think it's a trick that also works in other countries. Even if they say "sold out" if you go to a shop's website, the branch in a small city/town often still has something left in store.

you know if it says limited @Argos there is actually no stock

=))))

shit like this only works if you do it on an alt account

Well, there was for a while. Also does not change the fact I can buy one from Asda. A new one for me, Nintendo fan gets upset when I can buy one, incredible.

Actually, loads of stores have them.

I live in the U.K. and no they don't! i don't know what you hope to achieve by lying, you're only misleading yourself!

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

In the global scheme of things we are a very small market though.

2020 will remain Switch's peak year; the one-two punch of Animal Crossing New Horizons and the pandemic is a force too great to replicate without any similarly seismic events this year. 2021 will be respectively close though, and still an impressively strong year.

Agreed, and I think the argument that last holiday didn't have a big title is moot. Switch was such a popular item last year that sales wouldn't have been affected all that much.

Pretty much. More than anything else though, I think it'll come down to supply; last year there wasn't a semiconductor shortage, this year there is.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)

So i guess its a big win for all three then. The Switch continuing to chug along and both XSX and PS5 ahead of the prev gen consoles.

I mean if the SDF is saying there is stock, it must be so. I believe em on their pretty blue eyes. I dont believe the fact its going for almost 500 euro which i proved with actual evidence last week

Sure, it's in stock at Amazon if you want to pay scalpers prices, or Argos, if you can be bothered to search numerous stores to find the possibly 10 or so stores which have a handful in the whole of the U.K. I wouldn't by any stretch call this as being "Easy to find" if i was being totally honest.

Nintendo Switch (OLED Model) White Console - 365games.co.uk 

 Or perhaps this is the "readily available" you were  talking about? Paying £60 over the odds isn't easy to find, it's called being scalped.
