I'm cynical as well. There was a drop earlier this week and it went like most of the others, even though this one was for plus subscribers only. The Monday one is supposedly the biggest one they'll have this holiday season so hopefully more inventory will help. Obviously no slam dunk but I think ponying up $13 is worth the chance.
The bots autocorrected ‘bots’ to ‘boys’. Pretty crafty on their part.
Walmart+ keeps saying that an unexpected error has occurred. Will keep trying.
I paid for the GameStop bullshit and still haven’t been able to secure one during their drops. I’ve lost hope until 2024. At which point I assume the PS6 will be announced
nice! Thought I had one for a minute but end up without. Annoyed since I’ve paid for GameStop that they’ve barley had any.
unfortunate because they were having nonstop drops in the summer. hopefully they pick up heading into the holidays
Because of Elder Scrolls, I'll be trying to get an Xbox soon. I assume the same strategies will have to do. I still can't believe how lucky I was to get a PS5 within a couple weeks of it coming out.
This will likely be the first time that I will (eventually) get both consoles. I missed out completely on the PS4, and the backwards compatibility will allow for that. I am also an Elder Scrolls dork, so might have to also grab the SeriesX (depends on how the Steam Deck plays some games).
I’ll probably just get a gaming PC for ES6. Sucks that it’s not on PS anymore.
I agree. Can you use PS5 controllers for Xbox? I know that's a weird question, but it's really the same buttons, just different layout.
PS3/360 was really the only necessary multiconsole* generation
*Not including Nintendo which you should have in every generation
I think you've got some time. Like 3-4 years at least.
I asked for one for christmas. I typically tell my parents I don't want anything for Christmas. But when I've done that, I get like $50 to Bonefish Grill. My step-mom asked yesterday in the group chat and I asked for Xbox and wife a hand vacuum thing. Hopefully they hook us up.
GameStop has B2G1 on used, they're just not really advertising it - I had to ask store clerk and she didn't even know off top of her. Snagged Ratchet and Clank, Returnal, and Demons Souls for $100 total.
Lol, @ WalMart+. Refreshed at exactly 4:00ET, and it said sold out.
That was wrong they were still there. I paid $13 for the plus thing and got one. I was at 12 minutes left then sent me to the screen.
Edit. Well fuck nevermind. They just cancelled my order.
Yeah I tried to get one for brother and refresh exactly on time and had 30+ minute wait.
Just chat with customer service to cancel and request refund. I've done it twice with no hassle.
are these things still hard to get? I just got one from the Amazon drop a few mins ago and was surprised how quickly it went through compared to when I was actually trying to get one in Jan/Feb
Yes. Tried to get one for my friend and couldn’t get through
ok wasnt sure I guess I was lucky then. It was my first attempt at trying to get one since early this year when I finally got one after like 30 different attempts. Didnt know if it finally got easier
does Walmart+ trial subscription allow you to try and buy console drops? I noticed some peeps on twitter saying it won't let you buy a console on the walmart+ drops unless you are a paid member and Im wondering if thats true or not
no, paid membership only
well there goes that plan of trying to grab one for a family member on the next walmart+ drop
Is the digital or disc version better?
I prefer the flexibility of having the disc available. But they are identical performance wise
Thank you. Walmart+ members there is another drop on Monday at noon est
I’d rather have the option for the disc. Whenever we’ve moved and had to wait for Internet to get hooked up it’s nice to be able to hit up Redbox or old movies. The only disc game I still play is Destiny but I don’t want to go through downloading years of content
4k movies is also a plus for the disc version
Comes down to personal preference
Plus I don’t own any cd playing device anymore other than my car so if I ever get a cd…
I actually did get one when I visited Honolulu, I visited a local tee shop and their music mix was good and I asked for their Spotify playlist. They handed me a one-track cd
I got one
congrats I'm jealous but happy for you
Hisense U8G and U6G are both on sale and the lowest they've ever been. If you read rtings, they gave both really great reviews for gaming and overall use. They're probably the best TVs you can get for sub $500 and sub $1000.
I'll probably snag the U6G because I need a temporary TV that only fits a 50 in. space. Even though it's not set up for next gen gaming, it does HDR very well and I will be just fine with a 4k 60hz TV for the next few months.
Finally got my PS5 today. Anyone got any hack n slash RPG/ simulation / strategy games to recommend? I've got Fifa and NBA 2K22 downloading.
If you've never played God of War absolutely download that. It's free if you have PlayStation Plus.
There are a shit ton of free games available through PlayStation plus. Download all of them
I'm guessing Doom Eternal looks pretty amazing on PS5
maybe I'll get to see it before I turn 40
#Houston Dynamo (I think this was the tag)
I just bought the mass effect legendary pack which is on sale and yep, it still rules
playing 1 right now, grinding excited to get to two and three. Forgot how much I hate the Mako
It’s hard to drive but that wouldn’t be nearly as big of problem if every world wasn’t the Andes mountains. Like seriously do no alien worlds have the topography of Kansas?
Picked up a ps5 controller to play Rocket League on pc and other steam games. Man that thing is a beauty
My favorite controller I've ever used.
The face buttons and sticks will take some getting used to for RL because of muscle memory on exact pressure for jump and air roll movement but those sticks are wonderful on their amount of sensitivity compared to the clunkyness of the ps4 controller.
Ordered a PS5 last Monday from Walmart and it arrived yesterday which was well ahead of the quoted 12/14. Love it so far. Out of town until late Thursday though
I am a paid Walmart+ and can try and get one if someone itt is looking. Straight up for cost. Dm me if interested and I’ll see if I can set up the shipping info to go direct vs double shipping it.
Non-posting background lurking weirdos need not apply.
Today was pretty easy to grab a PS5 on Walmart. Everyone I know on today got one.
