    Thinking about finally copping one next week when my check comes in since there鈥檚 a decent amount of stuff out for it now, but is it still one of those things where I should be turning notifications and s*** on to jump on one if/when it鈥檚 available?

    Yes it鈥檚 still tough

    Put on Twitter alerts now for ps5 stock Twitter pages or join discord鈥檚

    Only way you will get one. However once you have those on, it鈥檚 only a matter of time until you get one. If you are actively trying you can get one easily after a couple of drops

    Yeah but neither console got a killer app yet so it鈥檚 all good

  • When games that are generation exclusives start coming out I will care more

  • Yes but you are REALLY not missing anything

    just get a pc

  • I was only able to get one by being invited to the PlayStation direct queue

  • Lou

    just get a pc

    building a pc is even worse rn cause of part shortage

    crypto nerds hogging all of the gpus

  • Yes... But you can get one if you do really want one OP. That's what everyone who hasn't got one will do until it's not hard to get one

  • join a discord with alerts and you will get one without even trying

  • i came up short a few times but just join a discord chat and wait until they start dropping.

    the discord i was in the mods gave some good tips on when to spam click and just what to expect in general when they are available. target for example the website starts bugging out because everyone is trying to click the same thing. its important you have certain things setup and ready to go when they pop up, because the consoles pop up for a minute or two and then they are out of stock again

  • I follow Matt Swider on Twitter, copped a Twitter for that sole purpose. So far I鈥檝e only took one L on that recent Playstation Direct, but now I know next time you should have multiple browsers open both on your phone and computer

    Yeah its gonna be hell for awhile. Even if you dont factor in the chip shortage now its holiday season. Still nothing you NEED on a Ps5 if you have a functional 4.
    Getting a series X MIGHT be easier but idk about that now.

    I got my systems through Wario64. Grabbed a series X with little trouble last December. Ps5 cop was a disaster. I BARELY got one. But I got lucky and wasn't trying on drops nearly as hard as I was in the start.

  • I got a PS5 this week, it took me literally a week or so to get one. All you have to do is make a Twitter account and follow the PS5 stock pages and set them to alerts for every tweet they post.

    They'll usually announce a drop a day or two ahead and then it's just a matter of waiting until they post the tweet saying they're now live.

    I've found lately that websites seem to have much more stock than when I tried last year to get one, PS5s on some sites used to sell out in seconds/2-3 mins. Now it takes up to an hour or so.

    It鈥檚 still consistently sold out most places, you just have to catch the shipments at the right time. If you have notifications on for stock update accounts on Twitter, you can make it much easier on yourself though.

    If it鈥檚 any consolation though, you鈥檙e not missing out on any must play next gen titles for now anyway

    Definitely, I got mine earlier this year thx to alerts. But as others said, there are still not too many PS5 games out anyway so you're not missing too much. Like most you'll prolly be playing your PS4 games anyway outside of like Returnal, Deathloop or any of the PS5 upgraded games like Ghost of Tsushima

  • buy on ebay
