I'm not from the US, so I can't test if this would go through the payment process or not.
Someone should try it and be the first to know.

They give you a discount for Xbox Game Ultimate and somehow that is applied to the second console (that may be in their system as Game Pass)
Consoles are limited to 1 unit, but thanks to the new Fortnite Bundle, you can put 2 in the cart.

they'll just cancel it. anyway there's no point having two unless you're a PoS eBay scalper
I have 3 Series S
One in the living room, one in the bedroom and one at my old child's room at my parents.

price was all 3 was still less than 1 PS5 at Ebay
If you have 2 kids, this is the perfect Christmas gift.

But I have no idea if it would be honored.
I didn't see this on socials yet. Not CAG or Twitter. So there is still a chance.

Their refurbished are under $300, but I’ve had bad luck with refurbished consoles in the past. I had to return 3 refurbished original Xbox consoles at EB Games because they kept freezing on me years ago. The Series S is already at a good price. I’d be shocked if they honor it. I’ve been thinking about getting a Series S at some point. Mainly because I have a lot of digital games on Xbox. I got a sub to GamePass recently.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Giving it a try because they'd make nice Christmas gifts for a few people I know. Totally expecting it to be cancelled though.

I knew a guy who got 10 PS5s at launch. He just scrounged around smaller stores selling games and he laughed how easy it was. Everyone else probably bee-lined wasting time checking Amazon and Best Buy and Walmart.
It was silly easy getting a PS5 for launch as stores had preorders up for days before filling up, hard to imagine now

Considering PS5 launch was online only. I doubt this is true.
Not true as my Gamestop had preorders open for days after they went live and picked up in store

Unless the guy is lying (coworker), he claims he got them early this year. Not launch preorders. You never know, he could be BS'ing.

He may have gotten his early as did I.

I spoke with Mod of War Mod of War towards the end of last year prior to launch and told him I would be getting my PS5 early and was going to share pics with him and eventually here but others had pics up before I got mine so it didn't matter at that point.

Paid for express shipping and mine is now "preparing for shipment"
I have one preparing for shipment, the other still just "ordered".

Worst case scenario, they cancel the $10 one and just ship me the $299 console... which I'll then return.

You bought a series x for your kid at your house AND your parents house?

Why people get excited for obvious pricing errors is beyond me. You’re in for a “we’re sorry” cancellation email and a $5 coupon if you’re lucky.
