    We keep having scalpers, seems to have first gotten widespread for the games area with the nes classic mini where even people on OCAU were snatching multiple units to resel...

    Honestly if these companies actually cared as much as they say they do, they'd be holding onto their stock for 3 more months and letting it build up more.

    Sitting on billions of dollars worth of inventory for months with no revenue, then everyone can pay $50 more to cover the costs. :thumbup:

    Another way to deal with scalpers is to just auction off every single inventory item themselves, that way they get the extra profit above RRP and not the scalpers.

    Still screws the customer over though.

    With controllers still not charging in rest mode after the firmware update I see online people are getting a charge from the back usb ports or the front usb-c, sure enough usb-c port works. Nice job Sony lol.

    Inspiration?

    That's a genuine Sony PS5 Summer Performance Pack accessory. Are you sure you're not under NDA?

    (ps: I also couldn't handle your original image orientation)

    The noise of the AC would adhere itself to the Pro "enhancement" lol

    There are a ton of free games in the PS Plus Collection, many upgraded somewhat for PS5. I’m currently playing Days Gone in 4K 60fps and enjoying it.

    Santa can buy them my old PS4 Pro and those kids better grateful it’s not an Xbox One S with Kinect.

    When I was a boy, you had to walk 15 miles to get to Christmas, and all you got was a stick.

    Was the stick ray-traced?

    I have a PS5, an extra controller, COD and NBA 2K21 but it's packed in a suitcase, never been opened. I should probably open and update firmware etc before Xmas, right?

    Bought a second-hand GOW Xbox One X (with a few games) for my other son who wanted an Xbox, not a PS5.

    I love them both the same, promise!
