The leaker has a history of providing precise information. In fact, his information is so in-depth that he also provides the time at which restocks will occur. So this is a very vague Tweet for his standards. He specified that he’s sending this limited information out early so people are ready for the restock when it occurs.

The PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series S are highly loved and demanded consoles. However, even more than a year after their release, fans are finding it hard to get their hands on the consoles. To add to the frustration, scalpers use bots to mass purchase the consoles and resale them for exorbitant prices on platforms such as eBay.

Additionally, the supply of these consoles is extremely limited, due to the devastating silicon chip shortage that began in 2020. It has impacted to such an extent that cars are piling up in factories awaiting these chips.
