Getting both at launch because I don't feel like dealing with stock issues down the line. Just one and done.

Just like above poster, gonna get both, but I'll need 2 of each for upstairs and downstairs. Might have to go 2 retailers, because I doubt that one will let me buy multiple consoles.

They also had substantial production quality issues with PS2. I think half the DIY repair sites in the internet got their start making guides for fixing PS2 DRE's.

Series X, although I guess I could go for the cheaper digital one since I don't have a 4k monitor and I almost never hookup the box to my TV, but that's a problem for future me.

Definitely not sold out, not with this pandemic unless both Sony and Microsoft are cutting down production to drive up the scarcity of it

It's kind of what I thought as well but given the fact we are going to be in a quarantine like stage going into next year, anything is possible. I hope your right and I can land myself one at that point. Digital is what's selling out on Pre-Order right now.

Preorder PS5. Sony's offering suits me so it's a no brainer. I am sure Xbox gamers are just as excited. Can't lose with either one.

Correct, launch PSOne, PS2 and PS3 all had plagued disc drives.

Good candidate for Black Friday/Cyber Monday/Boxing Day deals. Has Sony announced anything about stopping PS4 production?

At this point PS5 with Bluray and Series X. Although might change my mind by launch. Both with an extra controller and a game or two and we are talking about $2k. So hmmm...maybe just scalp the pre-orders and wait for trade in deals next Spring. But if covid wave 2 appears, stock will be thin for months. hmmm. but so will be software....decisions.
