Do I need a third PS5 just to have the newer revision?

So what's different than the same Sony directs going on right now?
Nothing!?
Maybe this will help weed out invites going out to those of us who have one already.

I got my first PS5 on launch day and even though the direct says only one per account I have gotten a few of the prior direct invites and is actually how we got my wife hers when the refresh glitch was working

Would be nice but it’s been so long I really don’t care at this point. Used 2 accounts so we’ll see.

Dude...I registered but I'm never gonna get one. Haven't turned on my PS4 since getting my PC upgraded and XSX. They said the people will be chosen based on Playstation activities.

I just can't go back to 30fps.

I'll keep my fingers crossed but man...I'm just not too confident at this point. I wish they would ask something like what do you plan to buy/play/subscribe to once you get a PS5.

I'd rock their world.

I'm just dreaming here, but I think the first thing I'd buy would be Returnal. I just want something fresh and not reminiscent of anything I've played before.

Maybe jump into some Miles Morales finally, though I thought the original game was...good just not great. Feel too LTTP for Demon's Souls. I've never played a Ratchet and Clank before so I might get into that.

Then I'd finally go in and finish Ghosts of Tsushima. I stopped playing because I felt they would upgrade it for PS5 at the time and wanted to play it with better performance and graphics.

They would be smart to sell me this console. Just sayin.

Oh so people still buy into this artificial "scalpers" narrative? They still haven't figured out that there's nothing easier than to stop scalping but it artificially creates demands and inflates prices which is why Nvidia has let it run for years?

Invites start going out next month.
I have almost all the exclusives.
HZD
U4
TLOU:Re and 2
Ghosts
God of War
Spiderman
BloodBorne
The Show
Gravity Rush 1 and 2
Infamous:SS
Death Stranding
LBP

That's all I can think of off the top of my head. I mean this should count for something right? PS+ subscriber...I'm worthy, no?

Edit: Nioh...No Man's Sky day 1...come on man...just let me get a taste!

I've gotten 3 invites from PS in the past, i'm gonna guess this is gonna be location locked too to either NA or EU specific.

Whoever creates a succeseful anti scalping system for internet purchases is getting rich, i'm telling ya.
Make people pick the stupid things up in store by "paying online and pick up in store", and be done with it. There's no reason why this hasn't been implemented at Best Buy, Target, Walmart, or any other retailer that has an online and B&M location. When the person gets to the store, link their driver's license info (NOT alternative forms of ID, i.e. passports, military ID, etc.) to their account, and send them on their where.

Most stores already asked for your driver's license when you're returning something, so not like it can't be done, or can't be implemented.

Spider-Man Miles Morales is way better than the regular Spider-Man game. The snowy environment by itself makes it 100% not winter eating than summer New York, but then you add on top better web slinging, better graphics, and better abilities and it's chef kiss.

More hoops that the same bots used for scalping can easily bypass. Great solution.
