The Playstation 5 Current /Future Owners' Thread

Inspired by this thread, I am starting the current gen thread.

Any idea why the shocking drought and missing units for sale, after the official launch? Has any of you seen delivery times announced?

If Sony Mobile is anything to go by, this will be a looooong wait.

No different from any of the last few console launches though (switch, PSx, Xbox X, SNES/NES mini etc) so hardly a surprise especially for a Xmas launch and no different for the new Xbox either.

I'll get one but I'm in no desperate rush until a few more actual PS5 titles are out.

I game mainly on PC and just buy the PS5 for the next GOW. I consider waiting for the second generation of hardware.

Been a Playstation guy since the first! Goes back much further than the PS to Nintendo NES, SEGA Genesis, etc. I am not a big gamer at all, just mostly play the major titles during the winter months. GTA, Fallout, Gran Turismo, COD, etc.

Very much looking forward to getting a PS 5 with Disc drive sometime soon!

Is this always such a wait? I thought a week or two past official launch there would be all sorts and flavors available. Oh, how mistaken I was...

Re: The Playstation 5 Current /Future Owners' Thread

I think the trend of the scalpers buying up initial releases and trying to resell started on the Playstation 3 from what I remember. Seems if a person isn't lucky enough to get one at the initial sale time its usually month or two before they start becoming available without a fight.

Hard to say this year, seems like the hoarding and lack of supply is the worst I have seen it. I figure maybe around Christmas or shortly afterwards people will be able to find one without being ripped off.

I can and will wait.
