Target's website annoys me to no end. It wants me to confirm my card every single time. By the time I even copy+paste it in, the damn thing is sold out again.
I was cooking dinner figured they'd go up at 12 est. My son came running into the kitchen at 6 saying gamestop was selling them. Almost missed it. Snagged one. Amazon I kept refreshing the page and by the time it showed stock they were gone in minutesYeah same here, I wasn't paying attention yesterday because Sony said "Preorders start tomorrow". So I did some stuff I planned to do today yesterday so I could free up today, and it's all sold out because retailers started selling early. WTF?!?! It's a shame but I guess I have to wait. Not a big deal overall, but it sure doesn't make me all that happy as a customer.
Yeah ordering from target is a big pain in the rear. I avoid them if I can help it and I don't even want to bother trying to snag a short supply item like a PS5 from them.
I don't mind too much waiting till the it becomes more easily available. I'll check bestbuy and amazon a little more than usual, but I am not going to go all out refreshing the page every few seconds. Lots of people were complaining about amazon, apparently someone found the link before amazon made it live, then posted it and IGN posted it and it was gone before the page went up for people who went to amazon from the front page.
I was the same way and had planned on staying up till 1am to watch preorder pages, 10 minutes later I lucked out super hard by going to reddit to read the conference notes and was immediately greeted by a post saying bestbuy preorder just went live. Bestbuys main page was loading bad so I googled bestbuy Canada ps5 and got the preorder page first link, got my order in and sighed in relief so hardYeah same here, I wasn't paying attention yesterday because Sony said "Preorders start tomorrow". So I did some stuff I planned to do today yesterday so I could free up today, and it's all sold out because retailers started selling early. WTF?!?! It's a shame but I guess I have to wait. Not a big deal overall, but it sure doesn't make me all that happy as a customer.
Target's checkout sounds just like EVGA's store. I had that same issue when I tried getting my 1080Ti AIO version card when it was released. Cart->checkout->put in all info->place order-> sorry all stock is sold out. It's a real nightmare and I never could get one from that kind of a system.
For me the plus side is Horizon Zero Dawn 2 isn't a launch title. I be a lot more impatient if it was because I want to play that so badly at the moment. Don't get me wrong I want to play Demon Soul's remake and Spiderman Mike Morales, but I waited this long for both I can wait a bit longer to play them. But I just finished HZD on PC, so I am really really wanting to play HZD2 lol
It could have been worse. Some people here actually got one. You should have seen the 3080 launch. Those lasted less than 1 minute.
I guess this is going to be the new norm with Electronics and launches.
Man I get to spend the rest of the year now hunting for this console!
If I wasn't going threw evga's forum reading about the 3080 pre order drama i could of been 10 mins faster at seeing the damn ps5 release.
Oh just to let everyone know, it seems like "Spider Man Miles Morales" is the preferable PS5 launch title alongside possibly Demons' Souls (though personally unless there are massive overhauls I can easily play Demons' Souls via RPCS3 at "remastered" enhanced graphic levels and even with emulated online now, so I'm none too particularly interested). I should mention there are two Spider Man Miles Morales PS5 game versions, "standard launch day" and "ultimate launch day". Its important to note not every store is specifying their game version is the "Ultimate" version. Especially if you didn't play PS4 Spider Man to completion, I HIGHLY suggest getting the Ultimate edition as besides PS5 Miles Morales, there's also a download code for a remastered PS5-upgraded (presumably with all DLC - it would be really shady to do otherwise) version of Spider Man! Just something to keep in mind!
While we're discussing it all, does anyone know if the a PS5 "3D Pulse" headset is likely to be worth it? I mean, I was under the impression that in the past Sony PS4 headsets were good, but you could do better. Maybe this one will be a stand-out, but I'm just curious if its likely to be worth it both for use with the PS5 and also via PC and Mobile? It seems that it has a couple of (non-boom) mics, a USB-C connection, a USB wireless receiver for use in wireless mode on PS5 or possibly PC, and via hard cable of some kind. Anyone used the PS4 era first party "Platinum" (preferable) or "Gold" headsets? How did they sound, work overall, and especially were they viable when used on PC both wired/wirelessly? Any info on the PS5 "3D Pulse" headset that would make it better than reputable 3rd party headsets (both gaming-branded/focused and otherwise). ?
Edit: If I decide not to keep this PS5 order I'll offer it to the FS forum first. Just found out the person I was buying it for as a gift may have picked up one of their own, so I'll have to decide what to do.
It sickens me how accurate and astute this statement is. I'm physically ill, but only in a Katy Perry instagramming about her morning sickness kind of way.Demon souls is enough to justify a PS5.
