Interesting. It's far closer to an AC clone than Zelda, IMO.

Yeah, it's nothing like a Zelda game. No dungeons, different sort of progression system. I felt it was probably closest to a Far Cry kind of game. Though in many ways, it's pretty similar to the most recent God of War as well as Ghost of Tsushima. And I absolutely loved it.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

My mind originally went to AC due to climbing things to open up the map but I guess that's become fairly standard in the genre these days.

Plenty of Open-world games that are similar: AC, GTA, Ghosts, Far Cry, etc... but this is the only one with ROBOT DINOSAURS!

^^^ Sold out already.

Looks like a change in design is already underway.

Damn. That was so fast.

And that article is 100% pure speculation.

Yeah, I'm following Wario64 on twitter and there was an alert at Walmart that I saw within seconds and it was already gone. I'm beginning to re-think my stance on the death penalty but only for scalper bots.

Clickbait. If anyone actually reads the original article Sony is looking due to the chip shortage to find another company to produce chips.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Tom’s guide isn’t clickbait really, but I get what you mean regarding the article.

Ive had zero interest in getting a PS5 due to these shortages. I guess I’ll pick one up when they announce the PS6.

If you really want one from them you need to watch Jake Randallís you tube video on buying consoles at walmart. From him I learned:
Use the app for wm
It goes out of stock than back at ten after and again at 20 after

Only reason I got XBox was I had watched that video and knew at 10 after it might show up briefly again.

He has them for every store, there are stupid little tricks to most of them.

Got my PS5 thanks to him, too, but that was just a twitter thing that I saw a bit before I saw the Wario64 one. That I got from Amazon.

I wish Sony would release an official back button for the DualSeanse. The attachment is so great on a DS4.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I almost joined the club yesterday. I got the alert for Best Buy and was able to get on immediately, but when I tried to add it to my cart, I got a message that they were requiring a second step, which Iím guessing was to foil bots. Had to wait another 15 minutes to add it to my cart, which I did successfully, but then every nearby store available for pickup went out of stock before I could check out. I think I couldíve gotten one if Iíd been willing to drive 6 hours round trip, but fuck that. At this point, I may just resign myself to picking it up around the holidays, though I would like to play the new R&C when it releases.

They're doing this same checkout system with GPUs, and it's maddening.

So this doesn't seem good for people that haven't gotten one yet:

I'd be more understanding of this if the limited supply that was out there wasn't sitting in the houses of the scalpers. Why can't they do a thing where people like us that have had a Target account for several years now can get first crack at buying one? Just one, so they know it's not being scalped. Same with Walmart or any other retailer.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Found out a buddy of mine has been scalping PS5s. Kinda shitty. Silver lining-ish, no bots involved. He's just been persistent with hopping online when they pop up as available. Then he sells them locally. I think he said he sold about 4-6 of them since launch. Nothing like the piles of them you see online.

That’s how my brother and his brother in law got theirs. They didn’t pay overly inflated prices though.

I wonder if there are legal issues with holding stock just for people that have an account on your site (that aren't otherwise listed as exclusives). But that would work exactly one time, after which every scalper would just create 50 accounts.

I do think Sony tries to do this with the customers who sign up for their queues but I know lots of people have had no luck.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Just look at recent trophies, amount of time on PSN, and if they are already playing on a PS5. If not, send them an invite to purchase one. It would be that simple. You already have an email of theirs. If they don't frequently check it then too bad.

MS is going to do something like this. If you are a part is the Insider program on Xbox One, you can get an invite to purchase a Series X. Info here:

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

Question, if I delete the PS4 version of Madden from my PS5, it still should be on my PS4 correct?
