Peeking at

looks like they are being advised to only sell them as $800 bundles.

According to a friend who is a manager at gamestop, they will indeed only be sold in bundles.

ID: hm219ex

I do believe you can buy then bundle, and then return the bundled accessories or games for refunds and then keep the PS5.

Yup, got mines tonight and the total was $860 after tax. Included Ratchet and Clank, Ghost of Tsushima, and Miles Morales, 1 year of PS+ and a $100 gift card.

The only things in there of value to me are the console ($500), GoT ($50), PS+ ($50), and the gift card ($100). So it's basically like paying a $160 premium to get it (plus 3 hours of standing in the cold). Sucks but it is what it is. Wish it were like the PS4 days when I could just get one for under retail while sitting in the comfort of my bed.

How are you not going to play either Ratchet or miles Morales...? Dafuq.

You really don’t want to miss out on Ratchet and Clank and Miles Morales. They are both great!

Id probably rather cut a toe off than participate in a ps5 hunt during black friday. Godspeed gentlemen. Make sure you wear your combat vests

ID: hm1ea1h

Judging by some of the videos from previous Black Fridays, losing a toe looks like a minor injury.

A worthy sacrifice for 4k 60fps gaming

I'm actually at one and they are selling 22 ps5s and there are 15 people in line. ez claps

GGs bro. Hope you brought a bat just in case lmao

If they were selling standalone consoles I might actually get in the line and bear it. But GameStop only sells them in nearly $800 bundles with games that I don’t want. And then the other retailers will only sell you a PS5 now if you are a member of their $100/year membership club, like Walmart+ or BestBuy Total Tech. So whether you pay extra to a scalper, for a “membership”, or for a bundle of games you don’t want, you are going to get fucked one way or another. It’s so disheartening. I’ve just given up.

You can do just a monthly subscription to those other stores though. I paid $12 for 1 month of Walmart+ and was able to get a PS5 on Monday.

ID: hm3ttjb

I know it wasn't probably the intention (although it might have been part of the reason), but I see this as an anti scalper tactic. Yes, they sell a bunch of shit with it that someone may not want or need, but the profit margins for scalpers diminish with the higher priced bundles. And I've heard that GS will exchange the games for ones you do want.

what if i’m not a gentleman?

But today is Thursday, when they’re going to be on sale.

ID: hm3gvud

Black Friday is never on the Friday. The stupid retailers start on thanksgiving for some weird reason.

Today? Fuck that.

5 : Anonymous2021/11/25 16:14 ID: hm1pxia

This sucks. Just open tomorrow and let your underpaid workers enjoy the holiday

ID: hm2cqm6

Kinda my first thought also. This madness needs to end let people spend time with family. It’s been a pandemic for two years a lot of us didn’t even get to spend last thanksgiving together.

ID: hm2yt4e

People say that every year yet, here we are. At least Target took a step in the right direction.

Nonsense to do this ON Thanksgiving day.

Good luck to those trying to get one but I think it’s BS to do this today and not wait for basically any other day.

ID: hm24xo1

I’m an employee, corporate said they wanted to “get ahead of the competition”

ID: hm2i5nu

Yeah because they won't sell out of ps5s in seconds any other day. Such BS

ID: hm26fol

I wonder how they will be getting ahead of the competition on Thursday oh that’s right they will be home with their families.

7 : Anonymous2021/11/25 16:09 ID: hm1p7vv

No thanks. Staying home and not supporting a business trying to make a quick buck on thanksgiving day.

8 : Anonymous2021/11/25 20:53 ID: hm2sz6l

No thanks. It's disgusting they're open Thanksgiving. I think they're the only retailer ope.

9 : Anonymous2021/11/25 19:06 ID: hm2e9if

Just keep the stores closed Smfh. It’s such a hot item, people will be there for it tomorrow.

I personally wouldn't shop for anything on Thanksgiving outside of critical necessities but I hope yall are safe.

Shame on GS for making employees work on Thanksgiving, though.

Way to be a shitty company gamestop.

ID: hm1ww1a

Remember when everyone was calling for their heads and then suddenly romanticized them over stocks? Lmao.

They’re the worst.

ID: hm1zcxk

Yeah, they had nearly finished sawing their own head off during the pandemic with how they were forcing stores open during lockdowns...then a group of idiots rallied behind them & acted like they were doing a good thing. Picking almost any other company would've been better.

13 : Anonymous2021/11/25 16:19 ID: hm1qlne

I wish you all luck, but I personally would not support retail on Thanksgiving Day. If you do go out, wear a mask regardless of the rules, these people are mostly all coming from large gatherings.

ID: hm1wlvh

Everyone get vaccinated so we can stop doing this b.s plz

14 : Anonymous2021/11/25 16:02 ID: hm1o7no

Look I know people really want a PS5 but please don’t patronize businesses that force people to work on Thanksgiving (especially GameStop which treats its employees like garbage)

15 : Anonymous2021/11/25 14:31 ID: hm1ckea

thank you for this, sent a link to a bunch of my friends around here because i already have one. i actually think they have a good chance if they go early because my area is smaller not a big city. good luck to everyone

ID: hm1d79n

Reports from others on Discord that popular areas already have overnight campers in line and it's too late to head out now. Good luck to them though, never know.

ID: hm1tni0

Geez, not surprised right there.

16 : Anonymous2021/11/25 19:01 ID: hm2doib

I'm beginning to believe I may never actually get a ps5. I'm starting to come to terms with it.

ID: hm2n5d8

If you're in the US, I signed up for the playstation direct emails to get invited to buy a ps5 and I got invited after only a few drops and I got one on my first drop. I'm not sure if that was lucky or normal but as long as you're not "I need this right now" sign up and wait for the email.

17 : Anonymous2021/11/25 19:38 ID: hm2iqt0

Reminder that you shouldn’t patronize stores on Thanksgiving because the workers aren’t given the choice to take the day off if the store decides to be open. Solidarity.

18 : Anonymous2021/11/25 20:52 ID: hm2stxo

Fuck GameStop

Calling it now, at least one death from trying to get PS5’s and Series X’s for Black Friday.

Nah's Thanksgiving

Bundles only $780~

They got a better system here out in Michigan… not sure about other outlets. They’re handing out limited tokens for those waiting in line… only limited stocks.. so pushing snatching drama… (Total 12 handed out)

23 : Anonymous2021/11/26 03:43 ID: hm458nh

Didn't people used to preorder thier systems to get them?
