PS5 Restock at Best Buy Fills Customers With Hopelessness
A new restock of the PlayStation 5 took place today at Best Buy, and unfortunately, the sale process turned out to be quite a mess once again. With the holidays rapidly approaching, the process of buying a PS5 has arguably been harder than ever before in recent weeks. And while many are trying to remain optimistic that they'll be able to snag a PS5 before Christmas, today's restock at Best Buy seems to be giving many customers a sense of hopelessness.
Not long after today's new PS5 restock began at Best Buy, social media began to fill up with responses from customers who were looking to snag Sony's console for themselves. As we have seen before with Best Buy, the main problem with this restock seemed to center around the queue system that is needed to purchase the PS5. While some customers were able to get through this queue system and eventually buy the console, others were stuck in a perpetual loop for hours.
As you would surely expect, this whole process led to many feeling frustrated and annoyed that the PS5 continues to be this hard to get ahold of. Even though it seems bewildering that the PS5 is still this difficult to obtain, given ever-present shipping and logistical difficulties around the world, it's unlikely that these problems will be resolved any time soon.

The Best Buy Struggles Continue
Pretty disappointed in @BestBuy today. Tried to get a PS5 but the website would not take my password. I reset it twice and it would not accept either new password so I missed out— Joshie (@vodka_josh) December 16, 2021

Scalpers Are the Worst
All I want for Christmas is a PS5. Managed to queue for a PS5 on BestBuy restock and it was gone in seconds. I had no shot. I hate scalpers. I hate those that buy up the supply and overcharge for it second hand. They can all get bent over and sodomized by an angry bull.— ✌🏻 (@SgtTacks) December 16, 2021

Keep Hope Alive!!
As soon as best buy restocked those PS5's they were sold out in 0.5 seconds man. She was right at the checkout too. My co worker is desperately trying to get one before Christmas. I still have hope. pic.twitter.com/pijbN0cGgr— Tenesha (@Blissade_) December 16, 2021
The Day Is Ruined
@BestBuy ruined my entire Thursday with this ps5 drop I’ve been looking at “checking inventory” for an hour— 🧑🚀 with a plastic bag for a helmet (@LibidoClarence) December 16, 2021
Time to Give Up the Hunt
Best Buy did another restock, another attempt where the cart wouldn't load... It can't be worth the headache trying to get this PS5 is causing. I'm done, I don't even want it anymore— RG | KingOfDeskopia 👑 (@KingOfDeskopia) December 16, 2021
