    PS5 isn't manufactured in the US so would the tariffs really impact this?

    PS: Not trying to make shit political in anyway whatsoever.

    Yes. Between tariffs to export to the US and the tariffs that were imposed on imports from China, they slowed production significantly. Now that the demand has been through the roof to have those semiconductors on appliances, computers, automobiles, etc., they can’t manufacture them fast enough to make up for the deficit.
    All the while, China needed to meet some level of demand with its other trade partners.

    The ports are also super congested and it's a nightmare getting anything out of China. My customer needs 8 containers worth of goods, and we have none available to offer. About to be 2 months behind from when the freight was ready for PU.

    I think a lot of the PS5 we are currently getting are coming straight out of Japan. I think I read that somewhere.

    Japan is still taking huge precautions with COVID so I would think that explains part of the production.

    But then, you’ve also got absolute shitheads like this manufacturing a supply shortage:

    it really is, such a great game and insane how much is in there in terms of stuff you can find, enemy diversity, etc.
    I bought the two paid DLCs the other day, looking forward to getting into them

    my only slight complaint with R&C is the RYNO felt more like a diarrhea christmas light show and significantly weaker than previous RYNOs.

    Yeah I was somewhat disappointed in the RYNO this time around. I love the callbacks to the other PS games and such, but even when they do drop they don't stick around very long and seemed very underwhelming compared to previous games. I want my RYNO to be the R&C version of the BFG

    Agree. Until you level it up enough to open portals all over the screen it wasn't that great of a weapon. I would also do lets say 5% damage on one hit. The next two somehow cause no damage and then next one is 5%. Seemed very weakened compared to the prior RYNO.

    All of the previous RYNOs would delete the final story boss on challenge mode hardest difficulty within 5 secs by virtue of it being a homing missile launcher, this one does 3% damage per hit.

    Homing missiles that creates tiny wormholes on impact to still fit the new theme but less of the aforementioned diarrhea christmas light show. Not having a RYNO be a missile launcher just feels off for the franchise.

    Just finished this game yesterday. I was hooked the whole playthrough. My only complaint was the aiming can be a little clunky at times. Other than that, it was a really good game and I loved the characters.

    Haven't watched this yet, but if it's anything like the Hades doc they made then it's really good.

    For any of you guys that just got PS5's, don't overlook this game. Best looking game I've ever played, with some really cool bosses. You get distracted just walking through the environments because of how beautiful it is
