I wonder how Bo feels about indirectly contributing to someone buying a Series X instead of a PS5
PS5 - I didn't fall for the "will go on sale tomorrow" message. Stayed up that night and scored two preorders because we wanted two consoles. My daughter scored one too but we cancelled it.
XBSX - Same thing, staying aware of when preorders started and putting in the "F5" work. Multiple tabs open and scored one when preorders went live.
RTX3080 - Not even F'n close to day one. No amount of "F5" was getting me one. Followed discord alerts and patience finally paid off. Picked it up from BB last week and installed it and a new PSU yesterday.
edit- I'm done with this gen purchases while supplies are limited even if Nintendo releases a new Switch or the others get a revision. I'm going to shift more of my gaming toward PC/PS anyway.
Check the order sub channels under the Xbox and PlayStation servers on Discord. There are also YouTube channels dedicated that essentially piggyback on the Discord channels.How? You aren't the first person to say they did this but i don't see a sign up for shit on that direct.playstation.com . No sign up, just "out of stock", i got no emails from sony, and its bullcrap as I have been a psn subscriber since day fing 1. My screename doesn't even have numbers as i was that early into the psn. Have a playstation credit card and ps plus, they never sent me shit.
Kinda peeved, I had no issues pre-ordering a ps4 , gamestop took my money months in advance and I walked in and out on day 1 in 30 minutes. This time no such offers. This time I was there for the stupid online pre-order the morning of and it was sold out right away, apparently they started the night before , assholes. How do you sell out of pre-orders, take them all and put people in mfing queues. ..wtf... Tried launch day, and 12 other days since, multiple times in a day always to have asshole scalper bots steal shit from my cart. If you have something in your cart it should be locked to you for at least 10 minutes for checkout or don't put it in the cart at all.
Yeah i am pissed. My ps4 is overheating and i can't play any of those games. My ps3 has broken wifi/bluetooth, and that's on it's last leg. Ironically my ps2 is working fine.
Tired of and jealous of all you people who have the console. I have more than enough loot but I am not going to pay some scalper money, f them. F them to hell!!!!
Been doubling down playing PC and switch. May just buy a backup switch if they don't announce the pro soon (just in case it breaks, i have too many games invested to have what happened to my ps4 )
Plus I have no ideia how people can’t buy the console due scalpers... every week seem to have a new batch on retailers.Another data point that will show that scalping is on a small, not very significant, fraction of the total market that gets elevated to a level above supply << demand by people who just want to point fingers at scapegoats.

The scalper thing is blown out of proportion for other reasons, lol.Plus I have no ideia how people can’t buy the console due scalpers... every week seem to have a new batch on retailers.
Love that photo with the cables coming up behind the table waiting to be fed some fresh console deliciousnessThis was my PS5 launch party pic:
My PS5 came directly from Sony staff order and the others from retail. I was finally able to make 2 friends happy with a PS5.
