The struggle to secure a PS5 continues to be very real for gamers.
Anxious gamers are currently virtually camping out on Best Buy’s website and the chain’s app, hoping to score either a digital or console version of the PS5. The company announced via Twitter yesterday (Dec. 14) that the next-gen consoles would be back in stock “sometime after 8 a.m. CT, online only.”
Who’s ready? 🎮 Shop NextGen consoles tomorrow, sometime after 8 a.m. CT, online only. Take yours home, only with contactless curbside pickup. Learn more: https://t.co/xt5wR7FGjE

That time has come and gone, and Best Buy has yet to push the button in releasing the consoles to the public. As you can imagine, it’s a full-on waiting game with gamers voicing their frustrations as they patiently wait for their chance to buy a PS5 or Xbox Series X.

The waiting game is not as fun as playing Spider-Man: Miles Morales on PS5, but if you are dead serious about trying to score the hottest item of 2020, and more than likely 2021, we implore you to be patient and not to give up.
