Good luck getting your hands on this...
Yeah scalpers are going to have a lot of profits this year because sony and the retailers messed up the Preorders
Sony didn’t really mess it up. The retailers did. Sony did generate interest more than usual though, and that helps the scalpers.
will wait till next year when horizon comes out because right now too much nonsense to be able to get one. Here's what i don't understand in 2020 why can't stores take pre orders and put us in que and give us the consoles when it's our turn/they come available. This is the best way to stop scalpers
Scalpers will be able to take up all the queue spots endlessly. Only manual verification can help unless these stores invest in some specialized measures. They should have virtual registers with people so they can verify you're a real person.
Make it so pre orders are done fully over then phone instead maybe?
Or you must pay for your pre order in advance.
Here in Canada my electronics store was only doing in-store pre orders, which is how it should be I think
Scalpers will always find a way. If Sony or MS really cared they could allocate their first units and make them available to members with an online account over a year old. It's just easier for them to let us fight for them 🙄
They may as well advertise a flying unicorn.
They'll be more common in stores than PS5 this Black Friday lol
Too many games to play to be stressing over next gen
True, plus I'm sure my backlog will grow a little with the holiday season deals coming up. For me, cold weather and increased stick time go hand in hand!
Im playin ghost of Tsushima to sooth the wait time for my ps5
Seems like a bad idea in covid times, might be some trampling videos making the rounds on social media!
No systems in store!!! The bots will get 80% of them
I'm more interested in a RTX 3070 or 3080 :D
Bots will get most of those too
Never been to an American Black Friday from what I seen its like a feeding frenzy they do more checking to get in a door to a store then there is checking in an NHL game.
It's a stupid American tradition that I'm ashamed of admitting to going to once in my lifetime. Never again
It’s not that bad anymore. Online shopping has really changed it.
While that certainly probably still exists in some bumfucknowhere walmart, the majority of shoppers have been doing it online for years at this point.
It's a fun experience if you go to the right places. I can get in and out of Walmart in 15 minutes or less. Going to miss those days, as the traditional black Friday continues to disappear.
I don’t see any real discounts I thought bf was supposed to be the lowest price of the year. This looks like a plain ad.
Pleh steh Shaw
I got super lucky and was able to get in a ps5 pre-order at Best Buy for store pickup. I just got a call from them to inform me they are doing pickups by appointment to limit crowds, etc. This whole time I've planned to keep the ps5. But I have run into some financial uncertainty because of the virus surge in my state. My company is considering shutting down for a couple of months. I really don't want to sell the ps5 but I may have to. I am not a scalper by any means as I have never bought something just to sell it for more. But realistically, I may have to sell this thing. What do you all think it will be worth and what's the best and safest way? I really really do not want to sell it, though depending on my situation in a couple weeks I may need to cash out. 😔 Please don't hate, I'm just seeking some advice from my fave having community! I'm thinking all possibilities here, hell I may seem out a temp job if my company did shut down as that unemployment check will be squat without another stimulus.
@brewin You did not say which version of the ps5 you have (digital or disk version). Taking a quick look at ebay it seems the digital version is selling on average for $200-$300 more than the retail price and the disk version is selling for $300-$500 more than the retail price. I have never sold anything but Ebay, Amazon, Mercari, Let Go, etc all appear to be relatively safe bets. How much you get will depend on how much Sony is able to satisfy supply on launch day and the few weeks afterwards. The closer Christmas gets the more desperate some people will get to make sure they can give/have the ps5 for a gift. Good luck and hopefully everything works out for you so you will not have to sell your ps5.
There's no FN way in hell I'm paying $70 for a video game knowing they'll drop the price with months (or within 10 days like BF5). Okay....I'll get off my soap box now. :P
They made an error in the ad. The PS5 has coming soon underneath it but in reality, it should say sold out because you won't be able to get one.
I’m looking for a good deal on gamepass. Has anybody seen one?
I am good for next gen consoles, between my projector (have to wait until 2021 for a projector that dies true HDMI 2.1) and TVs. The Sony S900H has recently received a firmware update that tuned HDMI inputs, 1,2, and 3 to HDMI 2.1. It is a solid TV for next genTVs. I still think the LG CX Series TVs are the best TV for overall performance for next gen consoles. but they can be pricey for some. The Sony S900H are an excellent choice.
