Pretty sure he isn't boasting. I have also been able to get several for various people. I have posted about it. Just have to have good timing and occasionally get lucky

I donít mind people posting about getting multiple consoles. I already have one, though.

Maybe so. To be clear, I was already able to get a PS5 (several months after my release day PS5 was stolen off my porch/or possibly by UPS).

Yeah, I've played a few hours. I get the gimmick. It's an apt analogy because you just described two generations of gaming. You repeat the same levels in the same locations over and over until you know all the steps/patterns of enemies to "complete" the level/story. It's Mega Man 2. Pick the "right" path and memorize patterns. This is just a fancy 3D slick modern version of everything that came before.

I'm not saying it's bad. I'm just saying it's weird seeing all the praise for what used to be a standard gaming trope a few generations ago.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

PSVR2 looks to take care of most of my issues with PSVR1 (namely the stupid camera, controllers and cables). Shame they didn't throw a battery on there and make it like the Quest 2 in terms of streaming wirelessly, but USB-C seems like the right way for them to go. The resolution looks fantastic and this will be a Day 1 purchase for me.

Available locally for in store pick up for me right now. I don't know anyone who still needs one.

But folks who claim that they are still impossible to get outside of eBay scalpers are just incorrect.

Gone now.
Maybe if I was up at 5am, I could've snagged one - but I wasn't, so I couldn't.

Still impossible for me, and I've been trying (as much as I can, considering I'm busy with work and have a newborn at home).

If you lived closer to me, then I would help you. However, I don't want to go through the hassle of getting one, having it shipped to me, and then shipping it to you. It already made me nervous enough for the ones I had to wait to arrive at my house and then get it to the people I know. Fortunately, all of them have made it and within a reasonable amount of time. Mine, that I ordered and was supposed to receive on launch from Amazon, came a day late and with both ends of the box torn open and the PS5 box clearly visible. I bet there was at least one attempt or thought of it for my console.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I'm still looking for one, albeit not very hard. I click on the posts here, and am waiting for another invite from Sony. That's about it. I don't have a smartphone, so the app or monitoring twitter isn't really something I can do. No biggie though, I'll get one eventually. FWIW, I don't mind seeing posts from people here saying they've picked up multiples.

Yeah, I've heard that basically most PS5s ship with the box visible as to what it is, just with a shipping label on it. We don't have much porch theft in my neighborhood, but it's still dicey.

Most drops at Target happen between 6AM and 7AM Central time. If you download the Hot Stock App, they'll notify when they drop and if you click on the notification they'll take you to the listing.

Free launch-day delivery means we should be getting it tomorrow.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Getcher 2021 PS wrapup!

For me:

333 total hours played
75% on PS5 titles; 25% on PS4
129 days played
0 hours played online
397 new trophies (5 platinum, 23 gold, 64 silver, 305 bronze)

My top 5 games were:

Avengers (73 hours)
FF7R: Intergrade (49 hrs)
NieR Replicant (48 hrs)
13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim (29 hrs)
Deathloop (28 hrs)

Weirdly, it says I just played 5 games, ignoring Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart, Cthulhu Saves Christmas, Sackboy, Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut, and Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War.
