    Can’t believe a year later there still is no stock.
    I’m guessing we won’t be getting much in the way of limited edition consoles.

    True dat!
    I got mine day 1 and it’s a damn fine console but honestly you could easily wait until next year before getting one.

    She’s a huge bitch alright, I moved mine to the bedroom while recovering from a injury and legit struggled to find somewhere suitable to sit it near tv.

    Take a look at Facey Marketplace. The amount of scams running is a disgrace.

    A lot of people have pretty decent luck using PS5 stock tracker social media accounts to get info of when stock drops are gonna take place. BigW seems to have regular stock drops.

    Went into EB. Said they're not taking any more orders this week. Try again in January for a March delivery.

    NSanity you're my last hope

    There's a twitter feed that generally lists upcoming pre-order opportunities.. two of the guys at work used it to get theirs. Obviously you have to be quick, but its pretty accurate from what they've said. I'll try and find it.

    Thanks. It's frustrating because I just want it to play games, I don't have any interest in onselling it.
    Look like people motivated by money have more drive than those by games :lol:

    Yeah it's bloody annoying. I'd like one for my son, he wanted one last Christmas and got money and has save it all year. I have no problem with people selling a car or house or GPU opportunistically as markets shift but really have you got nothing better to do than try and nab ps5 to make a $250 profit. I'd rather just go to work an extra few hours, stuff trying to buy and sell consoles for profit.

    I just called my local jb and asked if I could go on a list. Similar to powella, around 6 weeks later get a message saying it was ready for collection. Was 72 in queue when I preordered. Picked it up last week.

    I have a pre-order in my shipping cart from EB Games, for December 31st.

    In 2 minds about it.

    Edit: That didn't last long!

    Who's upgraded their SSD and what one in particular did you go for?

    I'm still tempted to put a 1TB 980 Pro despite wanting a 2TB...Plenty of heatsinks available i believe
