    A mate of mine got me a ps5 from Vodafone, that’s good! But he lives in Sydney, that’s bad. But I’m going up there for New Years, that’s good! But the borders might be closed by then, that’s bad

    I got both... so :confused:

    If you have a powerful PC then Q2 is a good purchase as you can enjoy all PCVR as well as stand-alone portable VR. The PC will also let you use SideQuest to side load extra stuff on the Q2.

    If you have a relatively modern TV with some or many of these features (OLED/QLED, 4K, HDR, 120fps, VRR, ALLM) then the new consoles look amazing and give you high-end gaming PC quality output for a fraction of the price.
    The DualSense controller is genuinely excellent, and the stupid fast SSD and I/O design in the PS5 is going to herald some pretty unique gaming experiences this gen.

    as someone who will want to do this i would recommend an HDMI switcher with an optical audio splitter. Also handy for consoles like the Switch that you need this for as well as anything else, unless you are using a receiver of course.

    like this, just not a 1.4 probably want a 2

    The lyrics are in that level as hidden items too.

    Reminded me a little of the Portal song Still Alive - but no where near as dark :)

    With great skill and dexterity.

    If you haven't already pre-ordered, then you might be shit out of luck. Unless you want to pay a scalper to get one. Saw one on Gumtree for $1500 the other day :O

    Yeah I had a quick look and selling up to $2000. Not sure if anyone is paying those prices but surely Sony would bring in more shipments over next 6 weeks.

    Yes, and they've all been sold via pre-order.

    Yes and no haha. I guess if I get desperate I can always hit up a scalper(won't be paying above $1000 though)

    Don't pay anything over $750 mate. Seriously. It's not worth it.
