PS5 Stock

There's been stock all over the place for a while, you MUST use one of the stock alert systems, you'll grab one no bother.

Install the app, set your alerts, make sure you stay logged into the retailers (keep doing this to be sure) - once you get the alert on your phone, quick press and order!

Or just let someone else do the work.

My mate text saying Very had stock so I just went on and got one 😀

I was doing this when I got mine in December last year, but it was shout from a mate that got me one in the end from Smyths.
 
Anyone else having an issue where the console switches itself on from totally off. I thought I'd sat on the controller or something the first time it happened, then I thought somehow next door was switching it on as I know he has a PS5 too. I'm going to have a faff on with HDMI settings tonight. Annoying!
Mine doesn't turn itself on but I got a new remote for the TV and when I turn the TV on the PlayStation now turns on as well. Didn't do it with the old remote.

I'm not bothering even trying until next year, maybes even later when Spiderman 2 and GOW are out. I'm even tempted to wait til they bring out a newer version, hopefully a slim version :lol:
That’s what I’ve resigned to. There’s still loads of scalpers asking $900 for the disc version.

I know they’re not responsible for scalpers but Sony hasn’t handled this well at all. Think of all that money they’re missing out on with PS subscriptions and games.
while scalpers are sat with them boxed up

Chip shortages are making them still hard to get, the scalpers are still buying them via script / sniper software and probably still will do for a while.
I was lucky enough to get one on release last year via Smyth's toys, made my bairns dreams come true at Christmas so I did :cool:
Just keep trying, you being in Canada is different with what stockists you've got but I'm sure you'll pick one up eventually xx

Are they still the same price as they were when released? How long does a console usually stay at that price for?

Will need to start saving and keeping an eye out for new stock. Just ordered a new 65" OLED TV and a new AV Receiver to pass through 4K. Can't wait for it to be delivered early this coming week but need a PS5 with disk player now.
How does the backwards compatibility work? Do they play PS4 disks or do you need to do something else and download them?
I really want to play Red Dead 2 again but with full resolution. Old PS4 Pro would be an option but they don't work as Blu-ray players and I need that as audio on Netflix and Amazon Prime etc is never lossless audio and I spent a small fortune on a surround sound system years ago and prefer being able to use it to it's full potential.

They play PS4 discs mate. Any that you have bought on the PlayStation store previously. Will still be in your library and be able to be downloaded. There is also the PS plus collection which is a collection of some of the best PS4 games.

It's a physical disk I have so the fact it can play it is good for me

Any recommendations for which stock alert system to use on Android?

PS4 pro does play blu-ray, it just won’t play 4k discs.
