"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.

looks like I'm gonna build a gaming PC.

Once God of War Ragnarok or Horizon Forbidden West drops I'll cop one immediately.

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.

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

There is an unoffical Microcenter discord group I joined, they often talk about what stock is going to be at what store and when.

I went one time, waited in line early in the AM, and got a EVGA RTX 3080 the first attempt. Store got almost 80 cards that day ranging from 3070, 3080, and 3090.

Online you can forget about it because bots scoop them up in about a second.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I was camping out for the gamestop bundle, but at just under $800 after tax, scalpers avoid the bundles thankfully.

im not even mad. i realized when I opened up Miles Morales that it also comes with remastered spiderman (one of my all time fav games)

MM is super smooth, still adjusting to the controller, slingin around the city is actually a bit clunkier and not as smooth as the ps4 controller and previous game, but maybe I just need to play more.

i also put the Cold War disc in so it could update, its going to take upwards of 5 hours. but i probably wont play cold war for a few months, im all in on spidey.

22. "Finally got one from Target this morning."
In response to Reply # 0


          

I have been half-heartedly on the lookout and occasionally use Matt Swider's Twitter to keep track of restocks. The restock didn't happen on Thursday as originally planned, but he was right on point when he said it would probably drop today (Friday) at 7-8am Eastern time. I just set up an alarm to wake up at that time and waited for his tweet, and I managed to easily pick one up on the Target app. I live in a relatively small college town, and I don't think most students are back yet, so that probably helped this time around. I'll probably pick up the Spiderman game and whatever stuff I need to play Destiny 2 on PS5 (I think I set up crossplay already). I haven't played on controller in so long, so I'm probably going to be terrible, but I'm honestly just most excited to play with old friends I haven't played with in years.

I haven't set it up yet, but I'm not sure if my monitor, an Acer XB271HU, is capable of downscaling 4k to 1440p. Kind of disappointing that Sony hasn't gotten native 1440p support working yet despite the system being out for a while now. I might also just end up getting a 4k display since I have a brand new sealed 3090 sitting around that I've been debating on selling or just keeping to replace my 1080 TI.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Most importantly, the system update allowed for installing internal SSD hard drives to increase the storage capacity for the PS5.

Anyone here planning to take the plunge on installing a M.2 SSD hard drive in their PS5?

I'm going to have to do some research on this so I can save some dollars on a hard drive as these appear to cost some serious dollars based on the very brief skimming I'm doing so far.

29. "The hard drive I ordered is on backorder status."
In response to Reply # 24


  

          

I copped an internal SSD hard drive from Western Digital the same day after I made my original post. The link for the hard drive is this https://tinyurl.com/zrv9rtds . The main reason was because of the $190 discount I noticed. The fact it comes with a heatsink was another added bonus since I didn't want to do too much extra research to see which heatsink would be compatible with the hard drive. At the time I ordered, I was told there was a 3-4 week waiting period for the hard drive to actually get shipped.

I just checked the website and it appears folks can't even order anymore. I'm guessing the computing chip shortage is still hitting companies hard in terms of shortages. I have to imagine that extends to PS5's still.

The only solace for folks out there struggling to PS5 is that the gaming library is still fairly weak.

I don't really have the time to be refreshing sites daily hoping for a drop. I don't want to pay reseller money but it's getting tempting at this point just out of convenience. I'm definitely gonna pay reseller money if I can't get one by the time Horizon Forbidden West drops...

If they tweet about a drop happening soon from a retailer make sure you log in with your account and update all your address and payment detail. Then when it launches try to check out as fast as you can.

I copped a bundle from gamestop this way after a week of following them.

I had it installed just over two weeks in mid-August before I caught a Walgreens drop. I got the disc-drive version so I spent a little more than I wanted to, and if I were patient I probably could've got the disc-less version (Walmart was selling both, alternating, the day I got mine) but I'll just consider that my scalper's fee. And who knows, maybe I'll get into the Criterion Collection at some point or whatever!

Edit: What took some getting used to was it seemed to send out alerts roughly 5-10 minutes before the drop actually happened, so initially it was frustrating seeing alerts at work and immediately seeing a sold out page. But once I finally happened to be home during one it was a pretty painless process honestly.
