Update 3:15pm ET: GameStop has sold out, but Walmart now has stock

Still looking for a PS5 or Xbox Series X? Well, GameStop is about to bring the heat with a bunch of bundles dropping today.

The retailer announced it will be selling "A limited number of PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S," bundles today (Thursday, Jan. 21). It's even going to stock Nintendo Switch bundles, if you're trying to track down the dockable console with some (hopefully) neat pack-ins. As of 3:15 pm (ET), the bundles have sold out. If you don't see them, try viewing via an incognito window on your browser.

But, as always, expect these units to sell out, and go fast at that. It's bad enough that GameStop's tweet refers to this incoming stock as "a limited number," but it's also advising that you turn on notifications for its social media account to do so.

This suggestion from GameStop is both smart shopping and smart marketing. While shoppers may get faster notice about availability, this opts users into GameStop sending them push notifications about anything that it wants.

Looking at GameStop's recent tweets suggests that opting into its notifications would leave you getting notifications for its live streams of games, promotions about games going on sale and videos from people who were able to successfully buy a console from the retailer.

And you might not want to get spam like that on your home screen, but at this rate you may have no choice. And it's not like the other accounts might be more helpful. Even those Twitter accounts focused on PS5 stock notifications may send you alerts for stock that doesn't apply to you, be it in another country or a retailer that requires a membership, such as Sam's Club.
