Has anyone actually managed to buy a PS5 yet?
« on: March 13, 2021, 02:56:12 AM »
Its now 4 months since launch and it seems that stock is still extremely tight and everywhere is out of stock. Here in the UK as least we are still in lockdown since 4th of Jan so all stores are closed until mid April. The only way of getting one over here right now is to get one online which is pretty much impossible because as soon as the stock becomes available its gone in seconds after the websites crash due to excess traffic. I also believe there are scalper bots programmed to snap them up also as soon as they go live  so they can be resold for a crazy price on ebay.

Is this the same situation in other countries or is this just a UK thing?

Yup. Same situation as you guys. A lot of stores you have to go in to get them. Some companies are online only. Either way, scalpers have been getting them and selling them on Amazon and whatnot. It's absolutely ridiculous. Only difference in the US is we're pretty much open for business so you can go into any store. I have the cash ready to go. I just need stock to come back. I read an article that Best Buy had stock in stores. I didn't even try to go in lol. I also read the article too late so I'm sure they were sold out.

Nope. Tried. Had it in my cart and when I clicked on purchase "Error: your cart is empty".

Damn bots.

Retailers need to do more to stop these bots. It's ridiculous. Not even just for next gen consoles but even graphics cards or anything. They snap up all the stock then price gouge like mother fuckers. At least Amazon is pulling gouged listings as they're reported I've noticed.

Got lucky and scored one back in December from WalMart online. Loving it so far after skipping the PS3/4 for shitty MS products.

So jealous! And you missed out with the PS3. Fantastic console and games lineup. I've been enjoying collecting for it. But I have shifted focus lately to original Xbox games. The original Xbox is an amazing console and the fact it does 480p right out of the gate makes it look quite acceptable on modern TVs. PS2 games are hit or miss whether they do progressive or not. Hence why my Fat is on my HDTV and my Slim is on my tube TV :)

I just managed to nab a package on GameStop's website today. Should be here within a week lol. It was a good package with two games I want but the price tag gave me anxiety lol. Which is fine because all the stuff I would have bought anyway lol. Now I need to figure out how to fit it in my tv stand. It's gonna be a big boy!

I dunno if it's like the US in the UK, but they haven't released any in brick and mortar as far as I know. It's online only. And it's tough. Actually, a friend of mine was trying to get a PS5 from Gamestop in the same inventory drop as I got mine and he didn't get it. I got lucky. I couldn't get it in my cart on Gamestops website but kept hitting refresh and it ended up in my cart. But they're only releasing consoles to Pro Members which helps to increase chances. I'm glad I bought that this year lol.

Anyone pick up the new Ratchet and Clank? Enjoying it so far, the graphics and game play are amazing.

It came with my package from GameStop. It's amazing. I'm loving the game and it's so much fun, I'm sucked in. I don't have a 4K TV yet so I took advantage of the lower graphics but 60 fps and it is so freaking smooth.

I won't have time today but I'll try to remember to do it tomorrow or this weekend. I got Ratchet and Clank and Spiderman Miles Morales (still sealed. Ratchet and Clank first lol).

Yes. It absolutely dwarfs the Xbox. In fact, it can fit inside the PS5 easily, that's how much of a big boy the PS5 is. I actually have a picture on my phone of my PS5 next to my Xbox in my TV console (before I reorganized it the other day lol).
