PS5s are about to be available
« on: September 09, 2022, 02:15:04 AM »
You can get a PS5 right now. They've been available all day at these sites:

https://direct.playstation.com/en-us/consoles/console/playstation5-console-horizon-forbidden-west-bundle.1000032115

https://www.walmart.com/ip/PS5-Console-Horizon-Forbidden-West-Bundle/884437848?athbdg=L1600

GameStop members will be able to buy them later today and then they go on sale there for regular customers on 9/10.

No idea if the limited supply issues are over or if this is just a bunch of consoles Sony held back to incentivize buyers to buy some of the big releases that are gonna come out between now and Black Friday. I've been trying to get one for a couple of years now and I figure maybe some other people here have been in the same boat.

Have they been that hard to get? My son uses my ps4 and I've been pondering upgrading him but I had no idea. I hadn't looked yet but was not aware!

Yeah bud... there's been a worldwide chip shortage going on for the past few years making new consoles and high-end graphics cards extremely hard to get (crypto farmers are making it much, much worse), also effecting the automotive industry and basically anything that uses these types of cards. Throw in supply chain issues like everything else. People have been paying high amounts over retail regularly to get a PS5 because they're almost never available in a retail location and the only chance of getting one is either extreme luck or having alerts set up via a stock tracker.

I always feel guilty I landed one in a Walmart thing on my first try considering I find it harder and harder to start playing a new game

I would, but with little PS5 exclusive games, no PSVR2 yet, it doesn't look worth it.  Probably gonna hold out till PS6

I saw these were available last week and I almost pulled the trigger. But I'm not interested in Horizon forbidden west and I don't want the disc drive version.... It may be a bad idea but I think I'm going to hold out for the basic digital console or a digital console bundle

See I couldnít not get the disc drive version.   I used to play N64 games until they broke, but Iím much more interested in 100% games then selling them on Craigslist to recoup a percentage of the costs.   Iím less inclined to play games that arenít campaign oriented these days

I've been down with the digital program pretty close to whenever Steam launched. If I had my way, I woulda copped a discless version for myself but I'm not sure if those are even in production right now. I see a bunch of "inventory" for that model on Craigslist and Twitter and the like but it doesn't look like legit retailers have had them in stock in 2022. A lot of the trackers have exact dates for when the last time a retailer had inventory in and what it was. Nice trick Sony pulled packing in a game and then charging $50 more though. Last year, my desktop died and it didn't take me long to figure out the only way I was gonna get a decent rig together is to buy a prebuilt. This feels like the a similar situation where I could wait it out but I'm kinda just down with what I can get my hands on. Also I guess now I've got something to watch my 4K Dawn of the Dead disc on. Horizon is going in the Secret Santa pile.

Yeah I was in the same situation with the original preorders, I was hoping to get the digital version but only the disc version was available. Better than nothing, and the 4K blu ray player feels like a bonus. The higher bitrate (compared to streaming) actually makes a big difference.

Iíll probably just wait until Grand Theft Auto VI comes out, if the rumors about a 2024 release date are true.
