Yeesh, already own Injustice 2 and couldn't care less about the other 2. Oh well, at least I still get to play online with my membership.

Superhot is actually really cool. A puzzle game disguised as a shooter.
And when you compare an AA next-gen racing game like Hot Wheels Unleashed to the shovel ware that Xbox Games With Gold gives out every month, even if it's not something you are very excited about, there's literally no comparison

I'm pretty sure anyone who was even remotely interested in Injustice 2 got it when it went down to 5 (or 3) bucks in the past couple of years.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

So my PS4 died and I thought I would just order one of these to replace it.




WTF!!!

Why can't it be found anywhere??? I am on a waiting list for Amazon. It has been out a few years correct? Never thought I would run into this.

No, I mean it was being sold for $499. But Wal-Mart had it listed like it was on sale, discounted from the scalpers price.

Follow this guy on Twitter

https://twitter.com/Wario64

He is super on top of when new stock comes in at the PS Direct store and other retailers and will give links and such. I got mine back in June from the PS Direct store from following him. Shipped within a few days of putting in my order.

It's not that hard to get one now, but there are still scalpers and people looking for it like you.

Yep! I followed him and was able to get both a PS5 and a Series X within a week or so of trying. Another tip: wherever you're trying to get it from (Walmart, Best Buy, etc) make sure you have a profile and a CC attached so you can make the checkout process as fast as possible. Should be able to snag one soon.

Thanks DJariya

Sam's Club has them with an extra controller, charging station, some game called Horizon Forbidden and $100 in Playstation gift cards.

I went with that. I bought an extra controller for the ps4 and the charging station will be nice to have. No clue about the game however.

Horizon Forbidden West is a good game. You should play Horizon Zero Dawn first though.

In addition to following that guy on twitter, turn on notifications for whenever they post.

And also, another tip we found was to find the listings on Amazon and put one on your wishlist, then when you see they're in stock go to your wishlist and buy from there, you're supposedly a smidge more likely to have the purchase go through. We got our XSX that way.

PlayStation Stars is live in the U.S. now. It was a one-click signup from within the PS iOS app.

They're available now. I added one to my cart to test it. Get one now if you're still looking for one. https://direct.playstation.com/en-us/hardware/ps5

I've read that people who got waitlisted over the web were let in instantly when they used the PS app, so if you have that on your phone, it might be worth a shot.

They're not NFTs, but they're somehow...worse? You can't sell or trade them, and AFAIK, you can only really look at your digital trophies spin around in a tiny window on the app, at least for now. You can't even zoom in or rotate them yourself, unless I missed it in the 3 seconds I goofed around with it. If you play any PS4 or PS5 game, you'll get 3 of them.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

It looks some of the rewards are redeemable for credit at the PS store but the only way to get those points it to buy things in the PS store itself. I suppose its Playstation Cash back,

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

It's kind of weird that there's no corresponding console app (that I can tell), and that it's all mobile. Would also be cool if past purchases that comply with the requirements would apply.
