You wouldn’t want to try getting it online? Best Buy had some….

Had... I always miss out whenever it does happen and they're not charging $200 extra. As long as they ship to the store like I had to do with the X, I can do that. Otherwise, no shipping to my home.

K, I’ll keep an eye out, just in case….

*edit to update

They have them on their site, with store delivery

They were on Sony Direct this morning still. I can't trust FedEx or UPS where I live after they left a package at the end of a 1/4 mile gated driveway with no tracking info given until the next day to find out it was stolen. It has to be in store or ordering from Best Buy to ship to store. I'm monitoring a few feeds on twitter, but they're annoying me with tweets of useless trash.

I'm poor as dirt. You guys should put your pocket change together and buy me a PS5.

You can leave a delivery comment stating on where you want to have it delivered to. Best Buy and Amazon have the option.

Too bad about the price hike in other markets, clearly it needed to be done (they don't have other parts of Sony covering PlayStation's costs) but hopefully the global economic situation will improve and they can get the price back down to where it was. There will be a lot of pressure to get it back down once things stabilize globally.

I'm curious if there is precedent for this. My memory of console prices isn't that strong, but I can't remember if a console maker has ever raised the MSRP of a system 2 years after release. Interesting all around.

They're a small company and they need the money. 🤣

I can't think of any and usually even when there are no cosmetic changes to a console they usually change some internals to reduce costs.

They should spin-off or cut lose some of their devs so they could look better in the eyes of another….maybe tencent, Apple, or MS?

But seriously, could this effect their future to purchase other devs? Maybe they’ll buy another support studio to push out pc games faster….

No. I was seeing how my idea of you guys all pitching in to buy me one was gonna play out.

Maybe DriedMangoes needs to move out if Canada now.
I have some free land here if he doesn't mind doing my evil bidding.

Early adopters ftw for once 😋

Early adopters always have it best. I've bought every PS console/handheld at launch (except PS5) and...well, they were the easiest to hack and STEAL GAMES to play on them.

What if DriedMangoes buys you a ps5 and or an XSX for residency in said land?
