I tried for a PS5 pre order but no dice. This is the one my youngest wants for Christmas. He has a PS3 so this would be an upgrade.

Personally, I prefer Nintendo.... I guess I'm just old school :)

Interesting way to describe inventory no one wanted.

That is why I was skeptical of everyone spending money for a system during our current economic situation. But you will splurge on what you like.

I always get loved ones the one single thing that will make their day.  I pricematch, return/rebuy, and whatever else is necessary, but I have that one thing in hand almost as soon as I know what it is.

Hmm for something no one wanted every site that had them were sold out of their allotments with an hour of it going live. They said specifically that they withheld inventory for launch day. Now by that I'm assuming they mean that they are holding stock that will be shipped to Brick and Mortar for people to buy on that day.

Most reputable shops the pre-order should be. They have a certain inventory number they are given by the manufacturer and once that's reached they show as sold out.

Is that in-store only or both stores and online?

GameStop preorder for PS5 was in store for just the disc version.  Online was for the Starter bundle (Spider-Man game, another game and some PS network thing I think).  Bundles have been in and out of stock this morning, but I managed to snag one.  I think it ships or delivers on 11/30, which is plenty of time for Christmas.

No telling if it SHIPS on 11/30 that it will be delivered in time for Christmas - shipping times are only going to get worse as we get closer to the holidays! :(

Thats me. I ask early so that way I have time to fid it and get it even if I have to drive to another state to check it off my list.

I was able to get a preorder from Amazon for the Xbox, its debatable whether I will receive it. I needed it because my old one is completely shot and I watch Netflix etc. It defintley serves multiple purposes but I agree that the price is atrocious.

Maybe just get a Firestick or Roku, but then you still need a new game system? Just get a new one S for 200 and call it a day during BF

I might bite on a system if they offered full keyboard/mouse support.

I am not a playstation fan but their new design is nice I am loving it and would consider getting one but that has always been the one my brother had and I had the xbox. And it is literally a box this time. It reminds me of the stones on the movie 5th Element

Just received an email from Gamestop... They will have deals on 10/13- 10/14. They are calling it their 1-Up sale. Will be interesting to see what they post.

Len,

 

If you read this I need some advise on a wifi router. Netgear Orbi rbk50 or the Netgear Nighthawk x6s - not gaming to heavy and need good coverage upstairs.

You would think with all the early sales this year, that they would release them sooner than Nov.

Yep, because a lot of people are buying now and not waiting until BF

I might bite the bullet for myself. But If I do I will definitely being playing this one and not letting it sit in the closet.

Leaning towards the PS5, but not right at launch. Trying to make the purchase just with beer money funds.
