Ebay is absolutely flooded with digital only consoles. Hope those fuckers get stuck with them.

 

I quite like the idea of going to get an unopened one from someone who lives near me for RRP (or less) and really over-enthusiastically thanking them for their service.

Haha yes! Really rub it in. Pump his hand in a hearty handshake. "Thank you sir, Thank you! I checked before Christmas and these things were going for a THOUSAND POUNDS!"

The digital consoles are still selling for 500-600 pounds on eBay so I don't think they're in too much danger yet. Similar profit margin to the disc consoles at the moment.

I managed to get one from Argos last night but totally argee it's stupid to drop at that time  now i just need to sit in empty office untill 5:30 mite go pick it up on my lunch

 

I've got nearly a hundred quid in Nectar points, I'll slap argos hard in the chops when they do a double up event and you know, you can walk in and buy one. My PS5 cost £0.

 

Might have to hold out for a couple of years mind.

stops the website crashing due to server load

 

Ensures they all go to nice well behaved bots that won't cause any customer service issues.

Interesting take and makes sense. If the scalpers are selling them sealed then they just become Sony's problem if the break further down the line. Guessing the contract is between the supplier and the original customer at the point of sale? Although most suppliers will just try and send you to Sony anyway and try and distance themselves from any sense of responsibility or obligation. 

 

Saying all that its not a bad thing at times that the supplier doesn't get involved. Had a issue with a monitor I bought from e-buyer last year and their after sales support was so bad I just contacted the manufacturer directly. Monitor was booked in next day a new one arrived and the old one collected. Zero hassle and great service. (it was BENQ BTW).

 

Still find it hard to believe that Sony themselves cannot have a pre-order list for these. Register interest, pay deposit and get it shipped out when in stock. I know it will take time to implement but this problem isn't going to go away anytime soon. I expect this will continue right though summer and into winter as the Xmas comes around again.

Dibs if it's a disc version Ry the best poster on here and just a general all round stand up guy.

 

I'll chuck in a few quid extra if there's a feint aroma of ammonia and booze.

I actually could have got one today if I hadn’t been working. I refreshed Game twice in a row. Second time, it was there. So I was on the page at the very second it arrived. Only, I was teaching online at the same time so had to get back to my students. I’m shit at multitasking. Got in the queue eventually but as it was minutes later I doubt I’ll get one.

I see Argos don't even have the disc one listed at the moment. If that is an attempt to stop people hammering the website, surely they will just keep refreshing to see when it's listed again?

Hard to tell, it's the usual queue that after about an hour tells you to go away. What's weird is that you can still join another line, and they still have items listed on the page to pre-order. By now it's usually all gone....

There's a 54000 long queue just to access their website. Amazing scenes.
