Can't wait only a few more weeks ladies and gentlemen! :D

BigBosss37d ago

I'm always checking my order list on EB Games website since I am from Australia to make sure that my order didn't get cancelled or delayed xD

Damm that thing is huge!....seriously not liking the bulky design but fortunately all that really matters is the games.

bouzebbal37d ago

That's not called regular USB it's called USB type-A.. Why am I seeing unprofessional people everywhere nowadays?

Father__Merrin37d ago

Wish I also had gotten one. Next April for me for ps5 for now il be happy with the series s

S2Killinit37d ago

I figured you would be PS5 first

Father__Merrin37d ago (Edited 37d ago )


Had massive expenditure Sep Oct with spending on birthdays etc so to pop out another £359 for a ps5 digi plus another £70(cod) was too much of a stretch managed to grab a series S so il buy cod for that

Should be able to nab a ps5 April approx

Father - Couldn't you have put down a deposit? I'm guessing that's what 99% of people did.

And I think SONY will be working extra hard to get more units ready before Christmas. There's not a huge price difference between series x and PS5, and PS5 has a HUGE power advantage over series s.

iain0437d ago

Exact same thing for me. PS5 as main console but couldn't get one and have managed to pre order a Series S as the 2nd console. If Microsoft come good with the games I may consider upgrading to the X in s couple of years.

Seems the pad is very close to being a game changer for most who got their hands on it

SullysCigar37d ago

Seriously, everyone's raving about it. i just watched ACG. He usually has a (albeit slight) preference for the feel of the xbox controllers, but he's gushing about DualSense, saying it's the most comfortable, well made controller. He genuinely was almost lost for words lol

nickanasty20637d ago

I can't wait until we get some more video breakdowns of how it actually works in game. I am really hoping it works the way i think its going to. The triggers for me are what i am most intrigued with. I am really hoping the trigger tension changing depending on weapon actually works in practice.

Bathyj37d ago

I said months ago people were sleeping on it and it was going to be the true difference maker on how games feel. Not a couple Tflops or a faster SSD.

darthv7237d ago (Edited 37d ago )

@Sully, I watched Karek this morning as well. Very good things to say about the DS. Can't wait to hold it myself.

@nick... watch these guys: they show a good demo with a zipper in the astro playroom and how it reflects on the controller.

The Wood37d ago

Darth. . That's one of the first ones I watched funnily enough

SullysCigar37d ago

@darthv72, yup, Karek was also loving the headphones, but I honestly think he might have peed a little thanks to the DualSense controller lol

I checked mine this morning as well, I preordered it from Best Buy.

So far it’s still active, hopefully it stays that way.

stupidusername37d ago

Pre ordered mine back in june from a company that started pre orders without knowing how many units they would be sent. I was an idiot who trusted that they knew what they were doing but I recently got e-mailed a apology with a message that read: 'expected delivery date: 21th may 2021'...
I really hope Sony steps up production quick!

Eidolon37d ago

For those who pre-ordered on time. 😢

I get paid over $90 per hour working from home with 2 kids at home. I never thought I'd be able to do it but my best friend earns over 10k a month doing this and she convinced me to try. The potential with this is endless. Heres what I've been doing,


ZeroBlue237d ago

It's 5% larger in cubic inches.

Brazz37d ago

i'm 90% sure it's only got something like 5% more volume than XBSX. Ps5 is much taller, but XBSX is fatty.

SullysCigar37d ago

That's right. What's more, if you look at the volume of PS5 disc and digital, it's actually smaller volume than the Series X. A convoluted approach to make a point, sure, but they're essentially the same size lol

PS5 is taller and slimmer, Series X is shorter and fatter.

shabz66637d ago (Edited 37d ago )

Reviews of the controller seems very very very positive. Exciting!!

Check out the giant bomb quick look for astros. Lot of cool nostalgia from the ps history and the controller seems to be doing some fascinating stuff.

The-Matrix-has-you37d ago

Oh man that’s a beautiful piece of tech right there. Can’t flipping wait! We’re almost there!

mark3214uk37d ago (Edited 37d ago )

goes into detail on every item apart from if the HDMI cable is 2.1

Iceball200037d ago

She also missed the fact that the controllers back side is the PS buttons as texture.

ziggurcat37d ago

We all already knew that.

boing137d ago

IGN confirmed 2.1 cable in their unboxing.
