The reason why we will not get next-generation tips on bodybuilding stores is simple and obvious: manufacturers want to avoid crowds and as a result become infected COVID-19. Basically, this move is for SONY, who obviously want to avoid suspicion or related to helping the spread of the virus because of the lines they are expected to build in stores to buy their comfort.
There is no PS5 or Xbox Series X in body stores, why not?
We already know for a long time that there will be a shortage of console stocks until at least 2021, and that now anyone who has not had the good fortune to keep his console in advance may be in a position where it is impossible to buy either PS5 or Xbox Series X of your choice.
This fact has caused many users to hope that they will be able to purchase their console at regular physical stores, which has led to long lines and crowds as we have seen many times in previous generations of console or other important releases. Given the health situation we are facing due to COVID-19 this could be very dangerous, so Microsoft and SonY would have taken a very difficult decision but also the most sensible: do not sell your consoles in optical stores and restrict their sale only through an online channel.
In fact, this leads to the point that, according to the source, SON will be putting pressure on shopkeepers for those who have already sent stock of console so as not to donate any unit of sales to the physical facilities they have, it reduces their sales by using your website only

While this may irritate many potential consumers and break their hopes, to really see how things are in the so-called “second wave” due to COVID this seems like an unwise decision. Note that the PS5 will be available from November 19 (10 in other countries), while the Xbox Series X is still on sale a few days earlier, on November 10.
How can you buy new consoles there?
As mentioned earlier, it seems that the sale of the new PS5 and Xbos Series X console will only be done in online stores. This does not mean that you have to go to the manufacturer official pages to buy or book, as you can also buy your next console at online retailers.
However, there is still the curiosity that when you go to online stores you can see that the cones are advertised but do not appear in their catalog, and some games even SONY controls or headphones are available. In other words, they currently do not have the comfort listed. We will have to wait until the time of the sale, perhaps, in order to be able to buy, when the online stores will definitely collapse and problems will come.
But look at it in the bright light, it’s better for an online store to fall than a physical store full of people, at least as it is, right?
