  1. I had basically decided to go for a bundle with extra controller and either Miles Morales or Demons Souls to increase my chances (I expect I’ll be getting all those at some point anyway) but then I got lucky with Smyths.
  2. You do see some replies to the stock alert accounts saying they bagged a base console, but lots of chat that people wanting those go to the back of the queue in favour of bundles. Purely anecdotal. Also anecdotal, but try to go for Smyths when they drop. I got both my X and PS5 from them relatively easily and a friend managed to get a PS5 last week after only deciding he wanted one the day or so before!
  3. This. I adored BF4 but the shift to historic turned me off. I’ve played a bit of V on Game Pass and quite enjoyed it but not long enough to see how the unlock system goes. It’s certainly kinetic though! A new near-future BF with huge maps and player counts and loads of weapons, scopes etc to unlock would be day 1 for me.
  4. I have PS5 and a Series X but haven’t had them for long or played anything next-gen on either yet, they are basically used for catching up on last gen stuff plus Roblox/Minecradt etc for my son. I really don’t know how they managed to make the X so small and quiet though. It sits there like a little stealth black box of doom. The PS5 is comparatively loud even just playing PS4 games. I suspect I’ll be using the Xbox as the multi format machine and then looking at whatever exclusives are on the Ps5 - and at this point the latter has far more next gen games!
  5. them’s the rules, I don’t make them
  6. Good call - all the updates only took about 10mins (300mbps fibre yay) but I thought I’d better put all his Lego games on there as well and that took an hour or so to get done. Safely back in the box now. To be fair, he was quite patient when helping me set up the Series X and Switch recently…
  7. Mine arrived this morning! Staying in the box until my son gets home from school later though.
  8. I also followed @UKPS5Notify and @PS5Instant, but it doesn’t look they notified about AO this morning either to be fair.
  9. Looks like Game & Argos expecting big drops soon and Smyths might not have put all their allocation up yet either. And I think the scalpers might be giving up a bit.
  10. I got my Series X from them and no issues. I managed to bag a PS5 from Smyths this morning too. Wasn’t expecting a drop just yet but had my phone in hand when various Twitter bot notifications came up and luckily my order for delivery went straight through. I wasn’t expecting that after several months of trying!
  11. I have a 2 week Game Pass code from my 2nd controller that I can’t use, do either of the people in this thread with a Series who don’t have GP want it?
  12. Accelerator reissue and a We Have Explosive 12” (I guess a remixes/reinterpretations thing like last years Cascade) for Record Store Day too.
  13. I’ll keep trying to get one, but at the moment my Series X is doing everything I need and then some. PS5 will be compulsory once PSVR2 appears I guess. Do Sony win in this situation? Yes, demand is high which gives headlines, but this endless drip-feed of stock in the absence of any pre-order waiting list system just makes consumers annoyed. And in the meantime Microsoft will be hoovering up all my next-gen spending and getting me more invested in their ecosystem.
