DISPATCHED! - The PlayStation 5 "IT'S HAPPENING!" thread


Recommended Posts

Picked up my Spidey, Sackboy and Demon's Souls from Smyth's after work.

 

They had a PS5 demo pod running and it looks so good.

 

Console boxes for both PS5s and Xbox Series which the girl on the door claimed were dummy boxes but, well, I'm not convinced.

 

Which begs the question - why couldn't Sony have launched the console today?

I didn't pre-order as I was unsure if a PS5 or Switch was a suitable purchase... I'd like to order on the 19th from John Lewis for their 2yr warranty.

 

- Assume I need to be up at 23:59 on the 18th to order, correct?

- JL Website only has the disc version on there. Assume the Digital version will appear in time?

- Does anyone else offer 2yrs warranty? (Waitrose in store maybe, at part of the JL group?)

 

Eh? Are more companies receiving stock and (thus far) have not been taking pre-orders?

I wonder if anyone is doing the same here...

Are the stores likely to put them on sale at midnight on launch day or go for a more civilised 9:00am start for online orders? What have they done for other major launches recently?

 

I didn't want one when the pre-orders came out but now I'm kicking myself for not bothering.

Why the FUCK haven't they released it here today?

 

Scum. 

Because Xbox released this week. They don't want to share the limelight with MS in the UK :D

 

Probably down to some weird strategy and supply issues.....

Likely to be availability of delivery slots... launches like this need to be coordinated with delivery partners, having both Xbox and ps5 launch a few days apart would have impacted networks quite heavily and caused issues with delivery.

(I could be entirely wrong though :sherlock:)

Fire at Amazon warehouse in Dunfermline, hoping this doesn't affect anyone's preorders in Scotland.

I live about 5 minutes away from that.

 

It was clearly caused by one of those smoking Series X - Microsoft's targeted attempt at stopping my from getting my PS Quintuple on launch day.

Another text from Argos just now.

Thank you for your Argos pre-order. Just a reminder that your order for PlayStation5 Console will be delivered to you on 19th November 2020 via DPD. You will be able to track your order on this day.

 

Here's hoping all is good.

I’ll give you that it looks half melted. The worry is that there is currently a palette-full of legit fucking melted PS5’s in Scotland rn and one of them might be mine :( 

that pos was an empathy - totally understand the excitement of new console day and the pain when it doesn't happen. My launch day non-working 360 gave me that rollercoaster 15 years ago :(

 

(I a,lmost wrote 10 years ago then realise it was older than that... FUCK where did my life go!)

So The Game Collection dispatched my Miles Morales (PS5) game on Wednesday, hasn't turned up yet but just received the pre-order bonus code.

Are Game Collection usually good for orders turning up on time?

I got Last of Us 2 from shopto and it didn't arrive until the monday.

They used to be cheap and quick. But recently not so great, plus haven't responded to my query (had to email as no phone contact and if you tweet they they just refer to to their customer service department via email) from yesterday morning either. Had a similar issue with a previous game and that never even turned up unfortunately.

Think I'll go back to using Simply Games.

My series X came from Amazon.  It was sent via Hermes, and was in Rugby at 11.30 the day before launch.

I'm in Dundee, so the Dunfermline warehouse is where things are usually dispatched from for me.

So, there is a chance your PS5 won't even get close to that warehouse...

 

 

 

In other news, add me to the list of folk with a confirmed Playstation Camera adapter, though, I have concern.

I'm fairly certain that once I move to a proper HDMI 2.1 TV, I'll have to unplug / replug VR each time I want to use it as the breakout box won't be HDMI 2.1 compatible, nor will the 2nd HDMI cable you need to use it...

I ordered Yakuza LAD on Xbone and they sent the PS4 version but that is the only problem I have had with them. I ordered Spiderman, Sackboy and Demon Souls the other day (Wesnesday) and they turned up this afternoon.

 

I'm in two minds whether to keep the PS4 version of the game as all other Yakuza games are on PS4 and it will get a PS5 update in March or get them to swap it over  for immediate next gen goodness.

 

Decisions, decisions
