    I’d rather wait and keep playing what I have than pay over the odds to scalpers.

    With you there. I seldom buy consoles immediately at release, usually end up getting one about a year later.

    But * me, can't explain why but I'm tempted to try and get one for myself by xmas.

    Anyone feel Sony are playing a blinder here to help boost sales leading to Christmas?

    Get a feel for demand now, month before Christmas, let the gaming world news harp on about exclusivity of ghe device due to stock making more people interested then by this time in December there will be a nice little back order from 1000s of customers globally in time for Christmas.

    Love me a conspiracy but I swear they playing a smart game here to get one over x box launch

    Same, got stung with the PS3 and yellow light, happy to have waited it out a bit for PS4.
    These days I am on the PC more and more, but just some bad urge to get one ASAP regardless haha

    You have to jump on and immediately turn off the auto renewal when doing it. Sneaky * turn it on when you redeem a code or renew.

    I think they will like the attention it gets but I think with covid and lockdown it may have intensified the demand. There is always a mad rush but this virus has worsened it all along the line. Production impacted while people being scared of being locked in and Christmas not long away a perfect storm for madness.

    I dont mind the autorenew, although to be honest I game less and less online with the PS4 it probably makes sense to cancel it. But the option is there and the free games are alright once every so often, so I feel I get my worth out of it.
    Just need to try and time it better for the deals to get on board with them.

    Didn’t think it’d be here for weeks so never ordered any games :56:

    Didn’t know Fifa wasn’t out for it yet so ordered COD Cold War.

    Personally the remaster of Spider-Man theirs not much difference apart from they have changed Peter Parker’s looks ..... their won’t be huge differences just yet apart from loading times because game developers need more time with the machinery graphics are always better near the end of a consoles life compared to the start as well

    The biggest difference I’ve seen in reviews is ray tracing and load times off the SSD. I’m starting to think I will wait things out until stock becomes available or prices stable out.

    Thinking that PSN might be worth it, you get decent amount of free games.
