    Thinking of ways to hide the ps5 without affecting ventilation issues. So sticking these behind the TV is a non-starter.

    Need to erect a partition wall.
    My desk is quite deep so should be able to hide behind tv.

    I didn't realise there had been more released today. Hopefully get more for order before launch.

    Pre ordered one from curry's earlier for someone. They had re-stocked at noon, must have been lucky as it was fairly simple to get, well pre order at least. Mighr be different at delivery time

    Was checking non stop , ended up getting 1 from Very had to take a controller and PS network year sub with out (only really costing an extra £5/£8 all in)

    Missus is panicking incase Very come back Nov saying they missed up , she says she wouldve proffered it from Currys but no joy on there

    Never bought anything from very tbh, so can't even say what they're like. Curry's is probably a more reputable company, but can only wait and see. Fingers crossed you get it on time etc

    Just my two cents but if I were to choose where I was to get it I would choose Very. I don't like Currys/PCworld. I have only bought one thing from very, a tablet ages ago. They could be crap too but currys has a bad reputation for customer service.

    I know it's easy to say this from the outside but I don't think you'll struggle to get them on the day. They're around 3/4 million more units released for the ps5 then there was for the ps4 and I don't recall anyone struggling then.

    The fomo is just from seeing people panicking that they can't get pre orders.

    The wee man's Christmas will be fine mate and if I see anything myself ill give you a shout (if you already find something by then, that's great too).

    As an aside, the gf used very a few times in the past and never had an issue. The only thing they're guilty off is offering more and more credit which offered to the wrong people is creating issues but that's another argument.

    I think a big part of the panic is a second wave of lockdown but I think you are right. I tried to buy a PS4 prior to it coming out and couldn't (my bank actually blocked the purchase cos they thought it was strange 400 quid was being spent in the middle of the night.) They were sold out in minutes.
    I got one the day after launch though no problem from Argos.

    The wee man will have a belter mate. Try not to worry too much about that side of it.

    Honestly feel sorry for parents these days. Everything costs a fortune now.
