305449, I copped a PS5 last week.

Literally had it for a week now.

I'm digging it. 4K Blu-rays look amazing.

Spider-Man: Miles Morales was hella fun (beat it last night. Just have side missions to do).

Very happy do far.
305451, I found a 3060ti quicker than I found a PS5

looks like I'm gonna build a gaming PC.

Once God of War Ragnarok or Horizon Forbidden West drops I'll cop one immediately.
305453, damn son where'd you find that?!

been looking for 3070 since september. last i read stock wouldn't be adequate until april
305455, I put the HotStock app on my phone and just setup a notification for it

Best Buy stocks the founder's edition ones. It alerted me and I went straight to buy it from my phone. I couldn't believe it went through honestly cause I never had the same luck with a PS5.
305456, i'll try it. thanks

i meant 3080 FE but typed in 3070 for some reason

i've had a new build ready for a new card just sitting in the corner collecting dust for months now. my trusty 980ti is still going strong though so i'm ok with waiting another couple of months. hopefully the 3080 FE will function as well for this new generation as the 980ti did with the previous generation
305452, Nice!

I copped Miles Morales on sale a few weeks ago but haven't been able to find a PS5 yet.
305454, Probably cop in the spring

By then they will be more widely available and I'll hopefully have my OLED
305463, when do you guys think these will be "easily" available?
Posted by HecticHavoc, Wed Jan-13-21 11:25 AM
not a Harry Potter guy but i imagine that game is gonna be good.

hopefully the remaster Sekiro or do something with it. i dont think there will be a game on PS5 to match that for a long time.
305465, Probably by March or April.

Sony said they're ramping up production to get at least 17 to 18 million just to America alone on the next few months.

I see thr scalpers hoarding these and reselling them for outrageous prices. Those fools are gonna have a wake up call soon.
305467, yeah, PS4 was pretty rough until the following February

A similar turn around feels about right here, though with the pandemic still raging I'll bet demand is still much higher than this time last generation.


Plus with Game Pass and even the Playstation Instant Game Collection, it's never been a better time to be a first-time owner of either series of consoles. You can catch up on the past on the cheap cheap.

305471, True.

I'm going to finally play the Uncharted series and hopefully finish Ghost of Tsushima
305478, I consider myself lucky, I was able to cop both Series X and PS5 on launch day
Posted by Innocent Criminal, Mon Jan-25-21 03:19 PM
Both from Walmart. None of my close friends have been able to cop either so far. Even got a Series S for my son for Christmas. I just wish I had this luck with sneaker drops.
305479, got my pre orders in for both

to anyone without em....you're not missing out


www.engadgethd.com - the other stuff i'm looking at
305480, I had OG Xbox and PS4, so I feel I had a pretty good upgrade on performance
Posted by Innocent Criminal, Tue Jan-26-21 08:17 AM
but other than that, there isn't anything that I see a need for anyone to rush out and especially pay scalpers for.
305481, Same here. Got PS5 from Target and 2 Series Xs and 1 S from BB

But like rjcc said, people aren't missing much at the moment till they really put out some games. But I do like the upgrades old games have received.
