Not been able to pre order anywhere, Argos sold out in under two minutes. 

There's been a few reports of Argos over selling it and loads being cancelled. Currys too. I managed to get one from Amazon and all looks good at the moment in terms of fulfilment.

 

I think when bundles start being released you'll see the availability of the standalone console becoming more readily available as people will cancel their current orders for a more competitive bundle option if they can get hold of them.

Rumours abound that the allocations got slashed due to Covid and them not being able to produce as many for the launch as they wanted.

I think Sony themselves said there were issues with production of the chips.

Argos just had a few in stock, I managed to grab one for my son who has been checking constantly. They're out of stock again so they couldn't have had many. Worth checking at 8am each day I'd say if you really want one.

Felt a bit underwhelmed by the showing. Like with the Series S/X, it doesn't feel like a generational leap with so many cross-gen games.

 

The only thing tempting me is the speed of loading from an SSD, but for the sake of £450 I'll just look at my phone for the odd 30 seconds.

 

Hopefully by the time I clear my backlog there'll be a genuine exclusive on there that's worth getting.

You can probably upgrade a ps4 and xbox one to SSD. Certainly ps4 should be easy enough but I don't know how much improvement it offers on previous gen. 

 

I'm daft as I've always been into tech and have preordered both. What a tit.

Its massive. Like a pc tower almost.

From what I've read, the size is almost exclusively to stop the noise that you hear from the fan in the PS4 (which is ridiculously loud).

 

Guess we'll find out about that in a few weeks.

£2499 at curry's!

That's some daft 800gb version, you can set the website up to mail you if any consoles become available.

That's the only version of the standard PS5 available at the moment.

Not a clue how or why they've priced it that high - The digital version is listed at £2359 too.

I think they've done it to stop scalpers. A bit strange, did it with the Xbox too.

If you did priority pre-ordrer from them you are given a discount code which you use to knock £2k off price and you can only order if you have the discount code. It is so people can not skip the cue whilst allowing pre-orders to complete purchase.

Thanks. A different approach...

Anyone know when both the Ps5 and Xbox are expected to be available to those without preorders 

 

Don't fancy paying £600 online.

Keep checking those.  

 

The Series-S was available yesterday via Microsoft.  Unsure if that is still the case.
