With many still trying to get their hands on a next-gen console, one gamer was surprised to see some PS5s being sold at the unlikeliest of places.
As many gamers will surely know, it has been an absolute nightmare to try and find a place with the new generation of consoles in stock – especially the PlayStation 5. Whether it be because of scalpers or console supply shortages, many felt like it was a hopeless endeavor when trying to get their hands on the next-gen tech.
Luckily, there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel as things are returning to some form of normalcy. While issues of console scalping persist, the overall global supply has increased and made things easier for people willing to put extra effort into looking. In fact, it seems like gamers can find the latest consoles in the unlikeliest places if they are lucky enough.
Nebraska Furniture Mart, for people who don’t know, is a massive store that can be thought of as a mix of furniture and home electronics like washing machines. The one in the post is most likely the one located in The Colony, Texas. As such, while it might be weird to think of PS5s being sold here rather than at a GameStop, it is not too much out of the realm of possibility.
Gamers have welcomed the idea of the system being sold at a Nebraska Furniture Mart. One user said they liked that it wasn’t being sold in a forced bundle with other games and accessories, which can cost about $800 – $1,000 depending on the location. Others were just relieved to see so many in one place and are now given newfound hope in finding one. Some were even making jokes about paying for a plane ticket so that they could take a trip down to Nebraska Furniture Mart and grab one of the PS5s from the image.
While finding the incredibly rare next gen system in a place like this is funny, gamers will gladly take whatever chance they can to finally get their hands on a PS5 console. Unfortunately, many have resorted to waiting in line for hours only to face rejection still, or pay scalpers obscene prices. While it’s likely that all the consoles in the post have already been bought, fans should try checking some unconventional places near them to find their own PS5.
