    So my family tried to get me a PS5 for my 30th birthday, but weren't able to secure one. Ended up getting a $749 Amazon voucher - so eagerly waiting a stock drop. Anyone got any word of when the next big drop of PS5's are due? Particularly at Amazon?

    Check this link religiously. Amazon generally sells out within 10 minutes of adding stock, last stock drop was 22nd Feb

    Haha - got it bookmarked and also got notifications on all the PS5 stock twitter pages... Fingers crossed. Hopefully if last drop was 22nd Feb, it might mean another drop later this week/early next week.

    ozbargain reckon harvey norman are getting a shipment on the 15th, I don't know how Sony divvy up the shipments but there's a good chance other retailers will get stock too.

    Sorry mate. I literally saw it then forgot when i responded thinking other avenues were an option.

    In my defence I woke up about 2hrs earlier than normal this morning and need coffee :lol:

    There's chrome add-ons that monitor and refresh pages at whatever intervals you choose. They can be of serious help in this situation.

    I've used this one https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/distill-web-monitor/inlikjemeeknofckkjolnjbpehgadgge?hl=en

    Probably better than just twitter pages as you're not relying on others?

    Finally joined the ps5 owners club.... got mine from jbhifi. Preordered on 17th Feb was in stock on 22nd. Best to give your local jbhifi a ring to see if they're doing preorders.

    I can’t believe there’s still no stock.

    The demand is unprecedented and at a time where production just can't be ramped up

    There are also sweet fuck all games, so people like me who already played all the PS4 greats got our consoles in November... played demons souls remake (fantastic btw) and spoderman standalone expansion and have had it collecting dust since.

    or like me didn't bother. I played spidey on PS4 and it was good there but not a must play title (I prefer the original game) Forbidden West might see me chasing a PS5 but eh, only maybe - there is going to be a PS4 release.

    Yeah original spidey 2018 was the first game in a long time I bothered to platinum trophy.

    I only bought it as soon as I did for demon's souls, otherwise I'd have waited for a more extended library.

    I still have a PS3 copy of DS that I haven't played to say I'm in no rush is an understatement :D

    The original is fantastic, the remake is even better.

    The ocarina of time esque rolling mechanic is so bad in the original DS lol, rolling sideways off cliffs all day.
