TODAY'S the day! Best Buy is having a huge next-gen console restock and it's happening in-store.
Instead of flocking to the retailer's website, gamers looking to upgrade to a PS5 or Xbox Series X will need to queue up, like in the before times.
We first got wind on the Best Buy in-store restock earlier this week, thanks to a couple of reputable PS5 stock trackers.
The retailer has since confirmed the rumours on its website, stating that select stores will have limited quantities of the Xbox Series X, PS5, and PS5 Digital Edition.
The queueing process also matches up with what was outlined, using the ticket system.
"Blue Shirts at participating stores will begin handing out tickets at 7:30 a.m. local time that morning," says Best Buy.
You'll be ask which console you're looking to buy, and one ticket will be handed out to each customer in the line.
"If you receive a ticket, you will be guaranteed the opportunity to purchase the console for which you have received a ticket."
You can also shop for games and accessories while you're in the store so there's no need for a mad rush.
As you'd expect, consoles are limited to one per customer.
If you head to the Best Buy website, you can use the drop down to find participating stores in your state, and the store's location.
Helpfully, ShowtimePro4 posted a list of locations on their Twitter account, which you can check out below.
It's still worth checking the website directly though, just to be on the safe side.
