    I hope you guys that really wanted one got one. Sony gave me what I wanted - exclusives still on PS4 for a bit longer. Helped me not need to rush for both consoles since my PS4 is for exclusives. So if I can post links and at least a couple of you guys got preorders from it then I’m set.

    I thought it would be tough this time because of covid and all that but man, it was brutal.

    I just hope my pre order pans out. I'm half expecting it to be cancelled.

    Wait so are they not going to send links to people that got that email a few weeks ago? It's the one reason I wasn't worried.

    Still salty I didn't get one. Been a Playstation customer since '95. No telling how much I've spent with Sony.

    That's odd. I figured they'd make digital the easy one to get so that all games are bought through PSN so they make the money instead of discs at Gamestop and Walmart.

    Probably a smaller loss or more of a profit margin with the standard version. Shouldn't cost them anywhere near $100 to put in a drive.

    Struck out every time last night. Gearing up for the 3080 disaster in a few minutes for more disappointment.

    Still feel like I’ll get a preorder eventually.

    Yeah shit sucks. Wish people wouldn’t buy them, but people with money won’t want little Johnie to miss out so they will pay it for their kids.

    I was going to buy one, but no big deal if I don’t get one. I would like to surprise my oldest with a series X at Xmas, but I am in no way letting a scalper win. Hopeful I’ll get the Xbox though.

    At a minimum, at least they are setting a firm time for rollouts.

    It was extremely anti-consumer for Sony to not mention the preorder date during their mega-event yesterday then rely on Geoff Keighley for that information to be dispersed, specifically stating they would begin 9/17. Walmart basically said “fuck it, let’s do it live” and the floodgates opened for every retailer.

    Of course, it’s a no-lose situation for Sony because they were going to sell out regardless and they frankly don’t care who buys the consoles as long as they move the units. Perhaps they lose a bit of customer loyalty here but who knows?

    Not gonna lie I am super heated that every person on R/PS5 who got selected for the Sony direct preorder already seems to have gotten a preorder through best buy or amazon

    Will stores have them on release day if you didn’t pre order? I’m sure that will be another shit show but I’m probably willing to be in the middle of it.

    It would have been nice for Sony to send those messages and confirm that those selected have the opportunity. It would have potentially limited some of this activity.

    Pretty poor roll out by Sony

    Yea emails should gave gone out a day or two before retailers released pre orders. Now a lot of people got one from Amazon or Walmart and their Sony reservation will go to waste.
