The next-generation consoles PS5 and Xbox Series X are always sold in limited stocks. Retailers such as GameStop have resorted to selling bundle sets for both systems to curb market demands. However, restocks continue to sell out in a matter of minutes.
A primary reason why PS5 and Xbox Series X come in limited supplies is the global electronic component shortage. Getting the suitable chip to make this fantastic gaming technology takes months in the making. Both Sony and Microsoft continue to resupply their consoles diligently. Nonetheless, customer demands quickly overtake their efforts. It becomes a struggle to compete with other gamers who would first buy out these resupplies.
The Verge reported that GameStop recently restocked a limited number of bundles on Wednesday, April 14. Bundles are generally more expensive than the retail price of buying a stand-alone PS5 and Xbox series X at $499. However, it is because of that price difference that competition against other customers is a lot lower. Bundles are also worth the money when factoring in the retail price of each accessory item or game separately.
