Even after a year, it's still very hard to find a PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X. If you're in the United States, you'll get the chance to buy a PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5: Digital Edition, or an Xbox Series X in stores starting at 7:30 a.m. on September 23, 2021. It seems like consoles will be available in major metropolitan areas based on the list. Curiously, the Xbox Series S is absent from this event.

Best Buy said the following about the in-store console event.

Blue Shirts at participating stores will begin handing out tickets at 7:30 a.m. local time that morning. They will ask you which console you wish to buy and hand out one ticket per purchasing customer in line. If you receive a ticket, you will be guaranteed the opportunity to purchase the console for which you have received a ticket. While in the store, you will also be able to buy games or gaming accessories in addition to your console. Consoles are limited to one per purchasing customer.

Just head over to the Best Buy website to see if there's a store near you. Keep in mind that many of these stores don't open until 10 AM so you'll have to wait a good two-and-a-half hours to complete your purchase.
