Gratz @fresquinho!

 

I know the feeling to well. I also got really lucky when I got mine. Now let’s just hope we can get some actual PS5 games to play on our PS5s. Only Demons Souls so far that is a next gen game.

AFTER 5 FRUSTRATING MONTHS FIGHTING MOTHERFUCKING SCALPERS I was FINALLY able to secure a PS5 system for myself with Spider Man Miles Morales included... How? I tried to ask on a local gaming store if there was a possibility of any employee to order a PS5 for me so that I could pick it up physically from the store and the guy was able to do it. I had tried every method I could think of to get a system and no luck until 7 days ago... I am in fucking tears, it took 1 week to arrive and I will be picking my console tomorrow. 

 

I just hope nobody murders me while I leave the store to enter my vehicle. I also hope I do not die in a horrible car crash too, I have been waiting for this moment for too long. 

 

Please guys, DO NOT give up. I know you can do it too. 

Congrats. Enjoy Spidey Remastered & Astro! 

Oh and Maquette

Astro begs to differ.

Yeah, it's why people shouldn't be too much in a rush to get one. Most every PS5 game out is also on PS4. I was lucky to get selected by Sony Direct, but their (and retailers') handling of this situation has been abhorrent.

Let’s be fair, Astro was a long demo with a platinum 😀

Still a fun little game.

Congrats! I recommend the new yakuza since the ps5 enhancements are actually pretty good.

While I personally don't think there's a reason to get a PS5 at the moment, I'm glad you managed to get one without buying off from scalpers! Congrats! I'll be chilling til some more games come out and when the console will be readily available in stores, don't mind if it'll take a year or two. Hopefully the pandemic will be a distant memory by that time as well!

Thank you so so much!!! Demon Souls is the only PS5 game that I don't have interest on at the moment because I am not into those kind of games, but I have heard lots of good things about it!!

Normally I always wait a year or even two to get the next gen console but I really couldn't wait this year specially with all this awful pandemic stuff!

I have no rush because I still have 52824739347 PS4 games in my digital library but I really wanna play Spider Man, SackBoy, WD Legion and the new AC game!

THANK YOU! Oh, do you believe I never played a Yakuza game but I love Japan and I learn Japanese? CRAZY! I might try that! (Just please tell me there is no trophies related to Majhong or something like that LOL)

Thank you very much and yes there should not be any "rush" to get the console but in a situation like this (fucking pandemic) I really wanted this console... I have been sitting on my ass for too long in this house! I do love my PS4 with all my passion but I really couldn't wait for the new system! Also I am gonna be making a HUGE jump because I always played on a PS4 Slim in a normal Full HD 1080 TV and now I got myself a 4K TV AND A FREAKING PS5. Sorry I am still too excited! 

 

AND....NO! I would never buy a console from a scalper, NEVER.

I am a little worried about the drifting problem I see in many Dualsense controllers but I hope nothing happens to mine... I am also super excited for Spider Man, SackBoy Adventure and Watch Dogs Legion because those are three games that I really like, for now I am gonna platinum Spider Man and try some PS5 platinums from the PS Plus service (I have been downloading every single game), then I will get SackBoy and Legion. Also I am curious about the new Assassins Creed game, it's been four years since I played an AC game! 

 

I just hope nobody murders me while I leave the store to enter my vehicle tomorrow. I also hope I do not die in a horrible car crash too, I have been waiting for this moment for too long.

Congrats my dude i was able to get one myself just last week, I had not had any dual sense drifting so I hope we both don't experience it. Enjoy it dude you deserve it

Congrats dude. After months of being in que after online que I finally got one 2 weeks ago from amazon. It came day after, two people delivered it and i had to sign 2 bits ot paper. (All for a gaming console, i was quite honored lol.) Suprised they wernt a police escort following it because ps5s was all they was delivering.

Its probably the most excited ive been unboxing a console. Think its because it was so hard to get.

Ive plated spiderman and astro bot and getting sackboy for it on tues and im planning on playing ac and cyberpunk on it in the near future

Sure, the scalpers are a problem. But, they are only a problem because of two much bigger problems. 

Those problems are Covid19 AND a supply chain shortage. Both of which are obviously out of

Sony's control and for some reason, most people don't want to acknowledge those 2 points.

Agree.

 

I think the step up from ps4 to ps5 is greater than from ps3 to ps4. 

 

I think the super quick loading times make a huge difference.

I hope it continues when the system gets really put to its limits in the bext few years

I'm sure she'll have a blast. It's so nostalgic, especially if someone's played PSOne/PS2 back in the day.

Thank you very much guys, it is an extremely hilarious story yes, it is incredible how it is so hard to get one system 5 MONTHS AFTER RELEASE. I had tried every method I could think of to get a system and no luck until 7 days ago... It was a miracle, the employee at the local gaming store said that they only get like 5 PS5 to 10 in like.. three weeks to four weeks and they sell out immediately. I really feel bad for everyone that could not get it yet, I know the feeling of frustration. I cannot wait to put my hands on this system, I am extremely happy that I also got Spider Man with it too and I have been dowloading PS Plus PS5 games from the PStore on my phone so I have a little extra to play! Thank you!!!!

 

(I'm just extremely worried about the PS5 Dualsense drifting that I see everywhere)

I've had my ps5 since day 1 and play it all the time besides when I switch to ps3 for my backlog(gotta make time for the backlog) and I have not had any drift problems and I'm fairly hard on controllers and the ps5 duelsense is holding up like a champ

I've tried a couple times over the last few months. I'm not in that big of a hurry for it anymore. I'm so far behind on PS4 still.. lol

Maybe I'll wait for the first price drop in a few years.. who knows we will see.

So in a years time when there is actually something new to play and a software update with a web browser and let's not forget Hdmi 2.1 tv's we can look back at this time and think, why the fuck did we try so hard?
