Rant - CypberPunk 2077 Limited Edition Xbox One X

CyberPunk 2077 is one of the most anticipated games of the year. It was slated to be released earlier but was pushed to September. With that being said an Xbox One X Limited Edition Console was announced soon after and MY GOD is it beautiful. That was scheduled to be release in June. There was no set date for the release but when they created an Xbox page for it, I was there. Everyday. Refreshing. I DID NOT want to miss this console. No way was I was going to let this console pass me by. When June finally hit I was there refreshing like a madman just to make sure I didn't miss it.

Now here's where this story goes south. One day last week I woke up, signed into work since I've been working remotely, as most others have, and totally spaced on refreshing. When I did, around 11am that morning--they were gone. My jaw hit the floor. Not only did the console get released [with what feels like no warning-although that's probably my fault for not doing enough research] but it was sold out in minutes. Inconceivable. So, I searched. Every retailer I could think of that would have the console listed. From Gamestop to Amazon to smaller known retailers. It was gone everywhere. Heartbroken and disappointed could not come close to how I was feeling. Not only did I miss my chance but there was no way for me to get the console now so I gave up.

A day later I was curious to see if it the console was being resold, well because that's a thing people do. Buy more than needed or just to then put it back online at a higher price. And MY GOD did they. At almost 4x the price of the original console. There is no way I was paying that much for a console. As much as I love the design, love everything I've seen and heard about the game. There was just no way to justify that purchase price, especially right now with the way the economy is going. However, I'm not giving up hope. I will one day get my hands on a CyberPunk 2077 Limited Edition Xbox One X. Why? Because it's just so an AWESOME design.
