  1. My mother in law is over today (shut up we’ve been her support bubble since they were first allowed) saw the PS5 and said “oh I’ve just been offered one of those”


    She’s been sent an email from JD Williams as a ‘valued customer’ to buy a bundle. Bundle’s not great and is £630 but if you know anyone who shops there I’d imagine there’s a decent chance of getting one as it’s not on their website

    Many congrats! I hop you end up liking the console after all this. :lol: Did you get any games?

    no but jcafarley let me borrow his copies of Miles and Sackboy so I’ve got something to play when I get some time with the thing!

    If retailers are adding their stock in the early hours then it’ll be to stop their sites falling over during the day. They actually want people to be able to buy other stuff.

    yeah that it I think that’s the reason. But what’s stopping retailer telling people what time they’re going live?


    bots are good to go at any time so letting customers when consoles will drop will stop they refreshing throughout the day and those people who stay yo through the night every night.

  4. Yeah it’s by region. Last time it slowly went in stock over different regions over a few hours.


    thankfully my weak bladder woke me up. Had a quick check of the twitch stream and it was going nuts. Popped onto the app and ordered. Very lucky.


    although they have charged me twice so I’ve got some explaining to do in the morning.

    The perfect time for all the bots to snap them up!



    Apparently SONY is starting to sell them direct from their website in US, hopefully they do a decent job then do same here.



    It'd be brilliant if you have to submit your PSN ID to order one. Didn't they do that when they first launched?

    I get much, much more use out of my Series S, thanks to Game Pass, than I do my PS5, and would be fine with just the S.


    I saw you on that Twitch stream telling people that the Series X is a good console, but the crowd in a lot of these places seems very Metro Gaming - PS5 is literally the only console worth owning, sort of thing, so I can see why for a certain crowd, PS5 is the only next gen experience you're remotely interested in and you end up with people doing weird things.


    Yeah It's funny, you see people in there chatting about how shit the xbox is and I just think... why? To me it feels like they're not even competing anymore yet some people still want to rage a console war.


    Saying that I'm in a twitch chat for a PS5 stock alert stream defending the Xbox. Who's the idiot?

    It’s a good point, often I’ll upgrade my phone for no real reason, but when I get the new one I always like it or there’s always something better about it. No doubt this will happen with PS5 too, I think being in such short supply puts me off too, prevents that kind of purchase when you just get it in your head you want one, and buy one, but with PS5 you need to be really committed to get one. 

    yeah it’s crazy. You literally have to follow all the rumours and be prepared to buy one throughout the day just to have a chance of getting one. I’ve read tweets about people staying up 40hrs at a time just in case Argos to their usual 2am drop or whatever.


    At this point I’d like one for sure but I’m not doing that. It’s nuts.

    I feel like this, during the launch I was definitely feeling the FOMO but now I’m not really arsed, whilst I’d definitely enjoy Demon’s I’ve already played it to death on PS3, and whilst I enjoyed Spider-Man I’d kind of already had my fill of the first game on PS4, and I could always play Miles Morales on my PS4 too if I really wanted. So I really see no compelling reasons to buy any new console right now, so it’s surprising how in demand they are. 

    you see the same thing with new mobile phones and they’re way more expensive.


    I’m properly happy with my Series X. I’m not playing anything mind blowing on it in terms of getting that ‘next gen’ gaming fix but the improved loading times and how well everything runs makes the upgrade totally worth it considering how much I love gaming.

    PS5s make up a tiny proportion of Argos' turnover. I imagine they chuck it on at 3am because they don't want it broken during the day by this lot:




    Yeah I'd imagine that's the reason. I mean so many sites have gone down for ages because of PS5 drops. Shoot have been absolutely pummelled for hours at a time.

    I woke up at 3:40 or something, not on purpose, just woke up, looked at Argos, site was down, restarted the pod and went back to sleep :)

    i really do feel sorry for all those people who are staying up night after night over these rumours. It’s mad.
