It’s been a year? I still haven’t seen these things in store yet.

"Hey WHATS UP guys and YYYESSS this is the new playSTATION 5...if you can get your hands on one. Haha! So Sony sent this to me for FREE, huge shout out, but good luck getting one, cause you can't"

I work in a game store,

They have been coming in. For PS5's we've been getting around 20 or so and then having to wait a month or more for the next set to come in. For Xboxes for a while we were getting them in weekly but in very small quantities (like, 4).

The thing is we don't really get to advertise that we have them, sometimes it's the console manufacturers not wanting it (don't want to cause a rush during a pandemic) and sometimes it's just pointless because we got so few in they will already be sold out by the time anyone actually sees it.

They are coming in more often now though, we are slowly getting to the point where the stock will be stable.

Only one I've ever seen is in a glass case at Wal-Mart, have yet to even see a new Xbox. My dreams of buying both months ago has never even come close to happening.

ID: hbalzhv

Still haven't seen games that warrant a new console purchase. People are either playing games that are 10 years old or pixel games that can run on a calculator.

I been a Series X in person, no skyscraper though

What made you stop being a Series X?

I have had money set aside for a year now for a PS5 and being unable to find one I'm realizing my PS4 is not so bad.

ID: hbabs4y

By the time PS5 will be available, I will be able to buy a new house with all that saved money

ID: hbae5d0

At this rate I just might wait for the PS5 slim or the PS6.

ID: hbac9va

The best way I found was the Walmart restocks. They added a button you have to hold so bots can't get them and they drop them every 10 minutes for an hour. I got it in my cart the first 10 minutes and it sold out, and then just kept trying to check out until the next 10 minutes at which point I was able to check out and get my ps5. It said October 5th shipping and I got it last Thursday.

ID: hbae8rd

Ohh this is exciting news. I was able to snag mine from Walmart too. It said October 2 but I was hoping it might come early

I think some developers might be holding back or marking their games dual gen at this point to make more money

ID: hb9v3x3

Including Sony lol, God of War, Forbidden West, and GT7 are all PS4 games, and who knows if they'll be out next year or 2023.

ID: hbaavyv

Forbidden west has a release date 🙂

I hope the scalpers are having trouble selling their overpriced consoles

ID: hb9f9db

They aren’t Atleast not PS5

ID: hb9kprb

I figured that might be the case for the ps5

6 : Anonymous2021/09/02 02:12 ID: hb9l0dp

I haven’t even bothered and that makes me sad

ID: hbbdk8r

There's nothing wrong with waiting a couple years into a console gen to get a better deal.

7 : Anonymous2021/09/02 01:10 ID: hb9d4m6

I refuse to buy a new system until I can walk into a store and just pick one off the shelf. Or just order it online and not worry about bots buying them all. Not like I'm missing out on much yet, anyway.

ID: hb9lngt

I don't necessarily need to get it off the shelf, but I sure as hell am not paying markup prices

ID: hb9jvos

Finally got a PS5 by just signing up on playstation direct and allowing their emails. Got one of those invites to buy. You get a special url and some time frame to buy it in. No spamming refresh, no waiting in some queue hoping you get in, no worrying about bots, highly recommend.

ID: hb9kzcl

This is what I did too. it was about 6 months of waiting but...

ID: hba0ky5

Wait. So you just log in to PlayStation direct and they might send you a buy link? Just that? Don’t have to go to a certain page to show interest in buying a ps5?

ID: hb9vdf2

dude I got my email right after I had just spent the money I was saving for it on some stuff that had come up. literally felt like a cruel joke lol

I'm from brazil, here the xbox series X and ps5 cost R$ 4350,00, they are a luxury items, because of scalpers the prices ate reaching R$ 6000,00, the cheapest way to buy the console is to travel to the frontier between Brasil and Paraguai.

ID: hb9rxia

Why is everything always cheaper in paraguay? You guys go there a lot!

ID: hbaba0f

It's because of brazil's heavy tax on anything imported. Most people go to paraguay to buy stuff knowing they can pass through customs tax free if bellow a quota. Most of the time everyone is above the quota, but they dont check eveeeeerything on everyone. Only if you're greedy.

ID: hb9t7gv

I never went, but yes we as people go there to buy items cheaper, there is a site with the objective of knowing prices and oficial stores that you can buy stuff

At this point, I’m waiting for the ps6 and one box one x one two

It’s made me appreciate my launch PS4 all the more (and Switch Lite). I’ve forgotten we’re in the “next-gen” several times because it seems so irrelevant atm.

ID: hbabx1q

This is exactly like me. Launch Ps4 plus a switch lite for Nintendo exclusives. I still have like 10-15 games which I have to play. No need for a ps5 right now.

ID: hbaq8s9

Funny, I have the same combination although I bought my PS4 back in 2016 so not at launch. I got a Switch Lite June last year for around €180. The best part is that my local library has a pretty big games section where you can rent games for a month on all consoles for free. I played Mario Odyssey, Zelda BOTW, multiple Pokemon games and countless PS4 titles. I paid €5 for the library pass back when I was in middle school, best value I've ever gotten. Only game I bought myself was AC New Horizons and that was totally worth it, put 100+ hours into that game.

Best part is that I still have a lot of games I want to play on those consoles too (from the library or on my watchlist). I think I can wait another couple of years for the PS5, unless there is a big PS5/next-gen exclusive title like GTA 6 or something along that line.

EDIT: thinking about it, it might just be worth it to get a PS5 for the better performance. Games like GTA V with long ass loading screens continue to frustrate me.

Scalpers can all go to hell.

ID: hbapwpp

Main problem is that the console manufacturers can't keep up with demand. The whole scalper situation would solve itself if there were enough consoles to go around.

ID: hbau0d4

Or, alternatively, if all scalpers went to hell.

14 : Anonymous2021/09/02 06:10 ID: hba9p3q

At this stage, it seems like we’ll get PS5s halfway through 2022 in Finland so I’ll get one once my launch PS4 finally dies. It’s struggling with newer games that’s for sure.

15 : Anonymous2021/09/02 02:16 ID: hb9lesh

It’s cause I still can’t get either console and none of my friends can either

16 : Anonymous2021/09/02 03:18 ID: hb9sqxr

I'm probably going to wait until at least 2022 to get a Series X. Most upcoming games I want will be on the Xbox One, so I really don't feel like I'm missing anything.

17 : Anonymous2021/09/02 00:30 ID: hb97pw7

PS4 was the same way, took forever for anything that wasn't indie games to drop

ID: hb9dcuh

Last three years were the best for the ps4, lots of heavy hitters.

ID: hba5aln

I was an early adopter of the ps1. Felt like I played the demo disk that came with it and ridge racer for like a year. The rest of the launch titles weren't that stellar outside maybe NBA jam TE (which I didnt like vs the arcade version) and maybe Rayman.

Resident evil was the first game I really remember making me appreciate the machine and that came out end of March 96, and I bought the ps4 in September 95.

I stopped buying consoles on release after the ps2. And I'm glad. Anyone who didn't learn their lesson with the ps4 pro isn't going to.

ID: hba7hu2

That Demo disc was boss though. So much time wasted playing Tekken.
