I traded in my old PS4 and 2 games for the PS4 Pro bundle EB Games has on at the moment for $299. I managed to get the last one in store and people were calling asking if there was any Pro's in stock when I was picking it up.

Seems there's a huge shortage of Pro's at the moment in Australia.

Went to grab a PS4 pro yesterday and checked with JB, Eb, Target at Doncaster and there was no stock. Apparently they've exceeded sales expectations and a new batch is due mid August. Hopefully they don't gouge on price when they're back in stock.

got the last one at EB on monday lucky I rang ahead and got it put aside as was a kid trying to buy one when I turned up but lady said they dont have any I walk up go I am here to pick up PS4 pro and kids mum gave me a filth look when the lady behind the counter handed it over lol.

I was just pure lucky there was a guy from that store at the other store I was at as the lady there said EB has none anywhere, he overheard it and goes well we had 1 this morning at my store, so he rang up and got it put aside.

Why is there a rush on them, is there a game out or something?

could it be a carry over from AMD not being able to produce enough gpu's?

so my original ps4 is not outputting display first cold boot, then I press power button which puts it to sleep, then i wake it and it posts.. then load uncharted lost legacy takes AGES when you open game, like up to 10-15 mins, sometimes fails and says error remove disc.. I am secretly hoping my ps4 is on a downhill road to death and I can find justification on getting a pro..

Anyone use a PC 4k monitor on their ps4 pro?
I have a Hisense 70m7000 in loungeroom (4k HDR) but the input lag is a bit crappy.. so I am thinking a PC monitor.. a shame 4k HDR pc monitors arent out, and once they are will be $$$$$$$$ so I guess ill ditch the epic contrast and colors and stick with normal PC 4k monitor, any suggestions on which?

also do you think EB games will do a trade in? or fully test it? (yes I am going to hell)

They have never tested anything I've traded in. They just check all the cables and shit is there.

Pretty much this. Brought in a faulty Xbox One & it wasn't an issue to get a new replacement. Also any controllers or cables you leave out or didn't re-pack they will just take from the new system.
