November 2020, PS5 and Xbox Series Launch and Challenges for Everyone
Released on November 10 and 12, 2020, respectively, the Xbox Series X and PS5 were supposed to be a turning point in video game history (just like every generation before them). Determinedly looking to the future, they were called and still are called “Next Gen” consoles.
Only now, more than a year and a half after their release, the flagship consoles of Microsoft and Sony are still not found in supermarkets or specialty stores. If you were planning to receive a gift from your grandmother, who will go shopping at Carrefour on Thursday afternoon, spoiler: it’s not tomorrow yet.
There are no restrictions in the game, except for the presence of cars …
To date, the only “honest” way to get one of the two consoles is to order online by scanning tech info sites and great deals (including SP, of course) or spending a lot of time on graphics-focused Discord channels. maps and consoles, being faster (and luckier) than others.
For those in a hurry or less scrupulous, there is an alternative, go through well-known scalpers who resell consoles for two or three times the price on resale sites such as eBay, Le Bon Coin, etc. If the method is controversial, unmistakable, but very expensive (often over 1000 €…).
Between the incessant breaks, delivery difficulties, and games that keep running on the previous generation, it’s hard to feel a truly new and different breath. And despite all this, the PS5 and Xbox Series X are real boxes and are selling like hot cakes.

Also, getting one of these consoles at launch is so hard that we keep calling them “next gen” consoles when we should be talking about “next gen” consoles. But while most gamers are still fixated on the previous generation, and games continue to be released in the “intergenerational” style (games that are released on both PS4/Xbox One and PS5/Xbox Series), it’s hard to say completely. enter this famous New Generation that we are desperately waiting for.
PS5 is always a problem…
We are not going to lie to each other, as of June 27, finding a PS5 is still a small miracle, and if now the stock is holding one to two minutes at the moment of “falling” against less than a second so far, it always has the right information that will be available and ready to click on the slightest signal.
However, it cannot be denied that falls occur more often and last longer. Hope for the famous “return to normal” is now possible, maybe not this year (it will still be hard to get a PS5 for Christmas), but early next year, fingers crossed.
