The PlayStation 5 is the only product drawing crowds on Black Friday 2020, and it's not even discounted

- No
- I don't have this issue, my storefront on Steam is cheap as hell. Cyberpunk and new games cost me alot less than you westerners at launch. I live in the west but I am a dual citizen. Cyberpunk is $29 for me. So all my third parties are bought on PC. PS exclusives are given out with PS Plus and I have every Sony Exclusive from last gen minus TLOU II and GOT because a PS5 upgrade is imminent or a sale if not. People buy what they buy out of impulse. I save and buy what I want when I want it at a better price. Perhaps these same games will come to PC. Waiting is good.
- I did not shame anyone until I got salty responses. All I said was I'm not buying this shit and hope people have a good time with their backlog.

The cost opportunity of buying a PS5 with some exclusives vs. A PC GPU with better features for $200-500 is more alluring since these GPUs made consoles obsolete the moment they were announced. And I get 5 years out of it too.
PS5 exclusives will still have better visuals than anything on PC.

I think it’s pretty irresponsible to encourage this type of gathering while Corona is still ravaging the USA. Hand out tickets to the appropriate number of folks, and tell the rest to go home and be safe.
Or let people do whatever they want and not force anyone to do anything against their will because of “science”. 😒

Still not buying this shit... hope everyone else has a good time with their backlog though.

Edit - For seething Fanboys getting salty at not wanting something:
- This fat fuck console is ugly as sin, I'd rather wait for the revision as it is giving people hardware issues... instead I bought my LG CX and am waiting for the 3080Ti price reveal.
- I will not pay $60 for a DLC of Spiderman
- I have an extensive backlog of PS Exclusives
- I do not buy games at launch when they will be discounted significantly later since I have patience
- Imagine shaming someone for not buying this shit, people really have become stupid

Thanks.
Hang on.

You dive in with an aggressive post.
Nobody bites.
Finally, ONE person replies with "salty" and because you didn't get the reaction you wanted and that was the best you could get, you went back and edited your post to include a bubbling cacophony of piss and vinegar ("seething" indeed, for goodness sake) which I suspect you wanted to post in the first place but didn't have the balls so were waiting for somebody to give you an excuse?

Bravo, I suppose. You ultimate, brave, hard bastard.:messenger_sunglasses:

PS1, Saturn, and PS2 had terrible launches. Dreamcast ill give ya though.

When Ridge Racer debuted on PlayStation, it was an event horizon moment in gaming. The future had arrived and nothing would ever be the same again.

It was also really damned good, one track and all.

*claps* You have so figured me out. That Ph.D in Psychology definitely determined your sense of non-empathy and assumptive attack on fanboys when its literally factual. If you were any more dense, I'd think you'd have an aneurism from my concoctive vile soup that I somehow made on purpose. What I said is actually quoted by someone on the first page and it was a sentence (if that is an attack, the snowflake level on you guys is off the charts).

Here lets do some analysis on you idiots now that its come down to this:

1. I had a PS4 Pro and I sold it knowing full well PS5 exclusives will work on them.
2. I have a PS3 with tons of unique games I care to finish from my backlog and don't want PS Now
3. I have a PC with 400+ bought games and a 1080 that I will replace eventually
4. I did not have a TV or Monitor that was this gen ready - decided with the LG CX and not the G9 Odyssey (this is worth more than the console) in every way as an upgrade to me.
5. Console fanboys crying about hardware malfunctions and launch units being faulty.
6. Thing is large and ugly, only my PC should be able to do that.
7. PS5 has 2 exclusives and 1 of them is also on the Pro. So essentially you guys are paying for Demon Souls that I still have to play on PS3.
8. Lmao, seen recent threads pop up on here talking about resolution and framerate. Made me laugh.
9. Finding out about the price has nothing to do with buying it, I can wait when they are in stock.
10. The PS5 value right now is dog tier, in my subjective opinion outside of the DualSense.
11-100. Knack 3 isn't out yet.

I understand why it derives value but its almost 100% out of affordability. I DON'T have this issue either. Besides, PS3 Phat is still the best Sony console in existence IMO.

I was just at Walmart now getting groceries and saw the guy in front of me in line with one. So I went back to electronics and got the last one they had out.

Guess I caved.

I fondly remember the days when I could impulse buy things and feel no guilt. If I were to go to Walmart for groceries and come home with a $450 console, my wife would make my life extremely unpleasant.

The ps5 is actually not that ugly in person, is still ugly tho, the thing i dislike more than the shape is the size, god damn is it big, but all in all is amazing console.

That's great, but the 3080ti will have an MSRP of $1000 and sell for $1100 - $1200.

Well, people don't generally want to know if you're not getting something since there are likely a lot of things that people aren't getting. Since we are around the launch time frame of each console, there is going to be more interest in wanting to know about those WHO did get in.

Thanks.

Fuck off with this nonsense. 265,000 Americans have died. Let’s not add more because “PS5”.

fortunately the age group most at risk from Covid-19 aren't the ones gathering at GameStop for a new console. As long as they don't invite Grandma over to play their new PS5 in the next couple weeks, things will probably be ok.

I know! Let's fine people thousands of dollars, hire snitches to ruin people's holiday and send the police over to put them in Jail! Weeeee! This is great. Then we'll put people on blast on television. Actually DOXX them on local TV!!! That'll teach that COVID to stop spreading itself mindlessly no matter what people think they're doing to stop it! IT WILL BE A FUCKING COVID MIRACLE!!!!

I wouldn't bother talking sense to people at this stage. Better just to mock them online- and in real life- ignore them.

Is that what you call talking sense? Because risking getting a deadly disease to score a toy seems kinda stupid to me.
Yep. Never leave your house. Ever. Just have stuff shipped to you from now until the end of time. And ESPECIALLY for a disease that only kills 6% of the people it infects. TOTALLY WORTH IT.

Well, maybe not until the end of time. Just until the end of the pandemic that's increasing in both number of infections and fatalities. But who cares if people die? This is video games we're talking about!

Sure. I don't care about them either since they can't take Covid seriously either.

What exactly was said? That no one would buy it?
The guy I'm referring to estimated that, what was the number, 200 million consoles, or something, would be sold, more than ps2, and we generally seemed to think he was pretty funny for estimating that high.. I'm just implying that, although it's early days, maybe his super high prediction won't be that wrong after all~

You seem illogical. Cheers mate.

I do respect your reasons for not wanting the PS5. Even if I disagree on most of them. There's just no common logic when it comes to these things. I don't know about US,EU or elsewhere, but man here in AUS, the hype is through the roof. I just came back from the JB-HIFI store here in Brisbane. While I was browsing through the PS4 games section. There were at least 10 people (families) asking if they can place an order on PS5. A fella at the gaming desk told me its been insane. They can't even take pre-orders any more.

Perfectly fine to disagree. But why the hype?

- PS5 has a cross-gen Spider-Man.
- Demon's Souls is a Remake.
- Everything else is 3rd Party or Backlog

What else?

Seems like herd mentality at this point.

I was (still am) hyped about the PS5. I loved the Astrobot and the controller "gimmicks". My 2 daughters also had a blast playing it. Didn't play Demon's Souls on PS3 and MM looks spectacular on PS5. I am also super stoked about playing PS4 games at the higher/more stable refresh rates . Ps plus Collection has at least 5 games that I didn't manage to play on PS4. Loading times are also insane. Look. I am at the stage of my life where $750 Dollaroos not going to break the bank and still enjoying playing video games. My first few weeks with PS5 have been nothing but the super fun.

Enjoy. Having a great time with your daughters is amazing value. Nothing better than that in the world.

As for gaming the gimmicks last a year before we are back to normal town. I remember when on PS4; inFamous: Second Son used the graffiti spray gimmick. After that nothing was innovative at all.

Its becoming very obvious you started your post to bait people into an argument. Pretty sad. If people want a PS5 why do you care? What was the point of even coming in here to tell everyone they don't need a PS5? Does it make you feel better or smarter? Because you are just looking like a prick
 
...and yet when I read about this on some german electronics blog, they needed to point out that consoles "are on their way out" and Stadia and Luna are taking over..

LOL..

Still not buying this shit... hope everyone else has a good time with their backlog though.

Edit - For seething Fanboys getting salty at not wanting something:
- This fat fuck console is ugly as sin, I'd rather wait for the revision as it is giving people hardware issues...
- Instead I bought my LG CX (the real upgrade)
- Waiting for the 3080Ti price reveal (it doesn't mean I'll buy it outright) because my backlog is huge on Steam
- I will not pay $60 for a DLC of Spiderman
- Demon's Souls is a Remake (a beautiful one)
- If you're new to FPS and Resolution stuff then well... people getting happy at 1080p 120 Hz...
- I have an extensive backlog of PS Exclusives
- I do not buy games at launch when they will be discounted significantly later since I have patience (MGSV and SFV were great examples) of this shit.
- Imagine shaming someone for not buying this shit
- Where exactly is the value right now? Your backlog of PS Plus Collection, Miles Cross-Gen Morales and Demons Souls Remake that Im playing on PS3 these days (the original)? It'll be a good 2 years before these ebony and ivory giant air purifier with coil whine will be worth much. Waiting for the games for now.

Thanks.

Allowing everyone access to the internet was a mistake.
