Anyone have any luck getting a PS5 this week? Apparently my Target has a few that they're selling in-store tomorrow so I'm going for that

I was in the online checkout on Costco's website for over an hour, but didn't get one. They had issues with everyone's CVV codes on their credit cards being rejected. After trying different browsers and devices, I finally saw someone suggest signing up for Visa Checkout. I did and finally got through to the "place order" page, but as soon as I clicked it I got an error saying that the item was sold out.¬†ūüėĒ

I don't really need the PS5 until The Show comes out, but if I can get one from Costco, I'm going to, because of their return policy in case these first batch systems have problems.

This is how I feel too. Plus theres still enough games I haven't gotten a chance to play on PS4 yet and Miles Morales is on PS4 as well so I personally do not see the need to upgrade yet.

Mine came today. I preordered it back in September. I held out on the PS4 for the 5 (I bought an Xbox for the first time last generation.) Mainly going to play last generation exclusives to start. Since its around black Friday Im getting some games at $25.

People should be buying an Xbox Series X and a membership to Gamepass which is the best deal in video games.  All 1st party games will be free on the service and given their recent acquisitions their list of exclusives should eventually trump Sony’s.  Also, for baseball fans, MLB The Show is being forced to go multiplatform next year I believe.

The Xbox may be superior. The ps4 was the first playstation I never bought. The Xbox S One was the first Xbox I ever owned. So for now it made more sense to get the Ps5.

I played Astros Playground for a bit, the new controller is a pretty impressive.

For most people it will likely come down to exclusives.

Xbox had a bad generation when it came to exclusives, but they now have a ton of 1st party studios and look to be buying more.  Acquiring Bethesda is a true game changer and got me to start the generation with them.  I love Sony and I hear their new controller is amazing, but getting every Microsoft exclusive for free with Gamepass completely changes the calculus.

Lucky enough to have both consoles so far. I like both Sony and Microsoft (I guess I leaned more towards Microsoft in the mid 2000s which I think was the golden era of Xbox) so I don't really have loyalties one way or the other. For Playstation it's all about the exclusives, as it always has been, for Microsoft, Game Pass is amazing. Plus the Series X is def pushing more horsepower (slightly faster SSD on the PS5) so for multiplatform games I'm getting the Xbox versions of most things. The Series X is more powerful than my PC right now (Ryzen 7 2700x with GTZ 1070, so a lot more powerful unless I got like a 3080 or something like that).

Also the PS5 is GIGANTIC. Geeeeeez.
