- More pictures of the Ratchet & Clank PS5 hardware bundles are popping up.
At least it’s not a special edition console because that would be virtually impossible to get.ID: h1a15zm
Could you imagine a R&C themed PS5/bundle? Holy shit.ID: h1acy2g
Imagine sony making custom plastic plates and selling those for like $50. Imagine the profit on that while not having to contend with chip shortages as well.ID: h1a6mpy
The controllers could have some pretty kick ass lighting.ID: h1a6jgq
I’d sell my kidney for that, and even fly to another continent just actually buy it in the first placeID: h1a85pf
I can dreamID: h1a994v
Oh god that would be a childhood dream lmaoID: h1a8irs
The regular console is already virtually impossible to get.ID: h1achdk
It would be like NVIDIA releasing new TI cards when regular cards are still unavailable.ID: h1ae8sr
PS5 Super Duper Ti XT with an extra 50 on the end? What a great idea!
Honestly surprised they are doing this, it’s not like stock isn’t selling out as it is!ID: h19qwle
They probably wanna sell some extra copies of R&C as they will charge more for these bundles
Edit: I'm talking about the price of the console is more as it has the game bundled with it. I know buying them separately will cost you the same amount. My point is that PS5 is flying off the shelves and you might as well use this as an opportunity to sell some of your software as no one will object to paying 70 extra if that gets them the console.ID: h19swmt
Yeah, this only makes sense if the price is close to or the same as buying both individually.ID: h1aeptv
This is just to pad RC sales. Gets it into more homes and they get a solid game to play that’s welcoming for all ages.ID: h1aflcc
These things are planned months if not years in advance. The wouldn't have known how bad the stock issue is and stock for these bundles were surely allocated well in advance.
The only thing that isn’t known at the moment is whether the
bundle includes a physical copy of the game or if it’s just a download
Dang, this is the only bit of info I was interested in knowing.ID: h19t69x
This guy bought the bundle, he posted a picture. He confirmed that there's a physical copy of the game.ID: h1a0p7m
Technicallyyyyy he said “En boîte.” /s
But seriously thank goodness it’s a physical copy!ID: h1av22v
Phew nice, good chance for a cheap used copy down the line.ID: h19obnu
Usually Sony bundles in physical copies I think. The ones with the ugly yellow box that say " not for resale/not to be sold separately".ID: h19p70i
Other pictures of the box show a physical game case on the side of it. There’s no indication that it’s a download code from what I can seeID: h1a4zg7
I'd never even heard of a game being automatically in the console digitally tbh. Does that happen?ID: h1a97cq
It doesn't, because games are tied to your account, not your machine.
I'll take any ps5 at retail price from a retailer. Just let me have a ps5. Please?ID: h1apz2x
Follow stock drops on TwitterID: h1azvpj
Always conveniently post when I’m driving, working or sleeping, and sell out in less than 2 minutes.
At this rate it’ll be 2022 if I’m lucky.
at this point I'm just waiting for officially licensed side plates.
I mean how can they make bundles and products like this and NOT see the potential.ID: h1ax66v
lol they obviously see and know the potential is there.
why do that now? why take resources to do that?
let them get more consoles out there and you'll start getting your custom faceplates.ID: h1a7f91
Yeah it’s absolutely insane that they haven’t done this yet. Maybe they’re just waiting for the right game. GoW?ID: h1a9lrh
it’s never going to be too late to release ratchet and clank side panels, so they maybe could release them in bundles, like the black and red controllers. so they could do spider-man and ratchet and clank or something
Kind of sucks this isn’t an actual special console and controller
Got a call from the store where I reserved a PS5 disco edition, asking if I want to change it to the Ratchet & Clank bundle. Got a confirmation etc already so think it's the real dealID: h1bebee
This right here. Scalpers would be reduced if retailers just required people to preorder and pick it up in person. A nice orderly queue instead of a jump ball or scrum every few weeks.
Can’t wait not to buy this due to scalpers
I can't even find a PS5 to begin with.ID: h1aihze
Same, I've been trying since NovemberID: h1ap812
Dang man I’m really sorry to hear that. My best advice would be to get Twitter and follow a few accounts that notify you of drops. I can’t remember the names but I followed like 3 or 4 of them. To be honest, I got super lucky. I remember I got a notification of a drop while I was driving. When I got home 10 minutes later I was still able to purchase one. I had to get a bundle at GameStop if that helps.
I look forward to the failing to get one.
The scalpers are ready to take that
I'm disappointed they're not doing specially painted sides for games bundles, such a wasted occasion...ID: h1a5148
I expect we'll see one for God of War.
doesn’t this mean a lot of drops soon? should be good news for anyone who hasn’t got one yet.ID: h1adb4e
Out here in the states scalpers are still selling the PS5s for $800. We won't be seeing inventories loosen until that number comes closer to retail. It's a good sign though. It means scalpers are sitting on too much stock and dropping prices.
It's insane to me though, that scalpers think their bullshit is worth the same as a retail box with a warranty plan. Even at $500-$600, I wouldn't buy anything over $200 without a warranty plan in place.
Hmm. No drops since the 3rd according to nowinstock, maybe Sony is planning for a large PS Direct drop tomorrow?
I was looking to grab this game but pricing is $89.99 CAD plus tax. It’s been a long time since I have paid $100 for a game
Honestly PlayStation is killing it right now. Love the Ratchet and Clank TV ad as well. PlayStation is firing on all cylinders and then some.
Damn the nostalgia this game give me is unreal. I remember playing the first ones on PS2
Need, but I want a rift purple ps5
