    So who managed to pre-order a launch/release day PS5? :) As of right now, the disc version has sold out for launch in Australia.

    If it was my son that might get me as many as I wanted until he receives the console and then he'll start getting hearing problems when I ask him to do stuff. Maybe best to tell him in advance and milk it a while.

    Shame that’s not illegal


    I threw a deposit down for the 2021 TBC shipment, love to see how many units have been purchased I don’t recall other console releases being sold out with in a few hours month from release

    Haha if you thought that was bad you should have seen the :):):):)show to get a 3080 last night. Definitely got smashed by bots, only 1 or 2 sites worldwide that I could get to load up within an hour or so if launch and I had 20 different sites open in my browser ready earlier yesterday.

    Sold out worldwide within about 12 hours or something...assumedly that means 11 million consoles which was the production number being thrown about for the first batch.

    They want full payment :alien:

    That’s not going to do the trick for now, least there won’t be any games for the 3 years so we’ve got time to scrap one up,

    Anyone remember the drama trying to get a GTA5 copy

    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that all PS4 wheels should work on PS5. Not sure if that was one manufacturer, but my Fanatec gear has been guaranteed to work.
