Since they debuted in November of 2020, the Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 game consoles have been extremely hard to find for gamers at retail price for a combination of factors – high demand for video games to fill time once occupied by social interaction, low production caused by supply chain crunches, and greedy scalpers deploying bots to suck up inventory to resell at a markup. These same problems also apply to the high end graphics cards PC gamers need to upgrade their rigs to play games at the highest possible visual quality. To fight back and help gamers upgrade, some enterprising Twitter users take their time to pass along insider info to others telling them the exact time the consoles and graphics cards will be going on sale at online retailers.
Hope this helps someone that needs them for their use! https://t.co/ZYZJBfDPM9

And now they’re also sharing info on COVID at-home test kits. Kind of a sad statement on the situation, that a test for fucking Coronavirus is just as hard to find as a $500 game console at its actual retail price of $500. Good on these accounts for telling followers where to find them, but why are we at the point where its a test and not the goddamned vaccine that’s impossible to get? Why are both America and the world so disorganized that simply to find out whether or not you have this cocksucking virus is such demand? At least the Biden Administration are trying – yeah, one of the bigger accounts shared that news too about the free at-home test kit website launching on Wednesday – but other institutions, both public and private, have failed abysmally.
