November 2020, the launch of the PS5 and Xbox series and the beginning of the ordeal for everyone
The Xbox Series X and PS5 were released respectively on November 10 and 12, 2020, and was set to mark a turning point in video game history (like every generation before them). Turning resolutely toward the future, they called, and still call them, the “next generation” of consoles.
but, More than a year and a half after its launch, Microsoft and Sony’s flagship consoles are still not found in supermarkets or specialty stores. If you’re planning to get one from Grandma who goes to Carrefour on a Thursday afternoon to do some shopping, alert: still not for tomorrow.
Nowadays, The only “honest” way to get one of the two consoles is to order online by scanning tech info sites and good deals (including JV of course) or spending time, a lot of time, on Discord channels dedicated to graphics cards and consoles while being faster (and luckier) than others.
For those who are in a hurry, or less meticulous, there is an alternative, go through the reputable brokers, who resell consoles at double or triple the price on resale sites like eBay, Le Bon Coin, etc… If the method is debatable, it is infallible, but very expensive (often more than 1000 euros…).
Between the constant shortages, display difficulties, and games still running on the previous generation, it’s hard to feel a truly new and different breath.. Despite all this, the PS5 and Xbox Series X are real boxes and sell like hot cakes.

Besides, it’s so hard to get one of these consoles at launch that we keep calling them “next generation” consoles when we should be talking about “new generation” consoles. But as long as the majority of gamers are still stuck in the previous generation and games continue to be released in “cross” style (games released on both PS4/Xbox One and PS5/Xbox Series), it’s hard to fully define. Enter this popular new generation that we’ve been waiting for.
We will not lie to each other, As of June 27, finding PS5 is still a little miracle And if the stocks now hold a minute or two in “low” time, versus less than a second so far, you always need the right information to be available and ready to click at the slightest bit of alert.
However, it is undeniable that the drops are more frequent and they last longer. Hope for the famous “return to normal” is now possible, maybe not for this year (the PS5 will still be hard to get at Christmas), but early next year. Cross your fingers.
