    This thread is for trying to get one. It has lots of nonsense in it but it also does come through when stock drops. It also shows you sometimes ways to skip these queues that sites sometimes put up.

    They have since found out it's not. Amazon and Argos seem a cert this week. Argos drop theirs between 2 and 4am though.

    man, * it.
    i don’t mind waiting till sony get their manufacturing>regional stock allocations>sales situation fixed.

    from what ive read the main reason they’ve had issues with this stuff is trumps fucken stupid trade war wi china. china happens to be, in some cases, the only source of certain rare earth metals that are critical to making microchips, transistors etc.

    stupid big orange *. lol

    All this pish has killed my enthusiasm for either console. Something needs to be done about scalping, not just with this, but concert tickets as well.

    Think game may have them, had over an hour wait.

    I'm waiting to try and nab my nephew one from argos when they're in stock.

    Honestly think Sony should do some sort of order type request for everyone interested in buying, and it gets relayed to the relevant nearest stockist. That'd kill those fannys buying all the PS5s.

    Gran turismo delayed to 22 .
    Good news for me. tleast when those titles that really matter actually released, consoles stock already abundant.
    Edit: it's actually abundant in my area but priced with crazy 1000up.

    Lads honestly, I was trying for ages couldn't get one for the brother in law. The first time I was alerted by this stream I bagged one.



    It's a silent stream that monitors all the websites and as soon as one drops an alarm goes off.

    Managed to get one from argos on Monday night. Not even a * queue it was that quick.

    What I did was I got my old phone and kept it on the charger in the living room during the day.....silent all day. Brought it to bed and boom 1:32am......alarm. had the PS5 by 1:35.

    It was youtibe yeah, a page called MSTV. I don't know if maybe they stopped but I do know that they close the stream when there isn't any drops expected and then reopen it when they are expected. I hope they haven't closed completely because honestly it was a game changer.

    Edit: here it is. Alarm is actually sounding now for Game

    That thing nearly gave me a fkn heart attack in the middle of the night a couple of weeks ago.

    Waited for about an hour until it dropped in Scotland but there was too much pish, having to order on app, create new accounts, then go on a laptop, absolute * that, do 13 twirls, 7 hail Mary's and sacrifice a 1 eyed deer.

    I'll just wait it out and try and get 1 via Argos when they're stupid site works, seems Game might be getting a * load of them soon. Also noticed that the scalpers prices are falling, just had a look and see its average around £150 at most profit.

    I was actually lucky enough to get 2 consoles before Christmas for the kids ... well for me also! :D

    Anyway I have been well chuffed with them until last week, so here's a heads up.

    On one of the controllers one of the adaptive triggers broke, it was really loose and if you even grazed against it while playing a game it would fire(If you were playing an FPS game).
    I called up Sony support and they were really helpful but also at the same time a bit worrying.
    I could send the controller to them for a free repair as this was a production fault.
    He asked if my other controllers were still working, which they are, he then said there was a chance they could also break in the same way but I just had to phone again and I could send those controllers in for repair.

    Again though, still a worry as it takes up to 3 weeks to get the controller fixed and returned.
