I agree. I definitely don't have high hopes of nabbing one at this point. May be for the best as the glossy consoles drive me nuts (also still hoping I can get a KH3 Pro). Whyyy do they make them that way when matte is so much easier to keep nice.

The collector side of me wants one for simply the limited factor. But I know I will spend more time trying to keep it clean then actually playing lol. Think I am going to stick with my spider-man pro even though the top portion is glossy. Its a small section of the console versus the ENTIRE thing plus its red so it'll be easier to keep it clean and looking new.

Lol they're getting you guys good with the hype machine. All this tension means it will sellout despite demand being half resale value. If we didn't already have two pros in the house, I'd probably opt for one too but meh. When I'm playing games it doesn't matter what the shell looks like. Although my retirement fund is looking a little sickly. . .

My retirement fund is boxes of pogs and beanie babies. I'm gonna be rich!

From pictures I've seen, I'm pretty sure the whole Spider-man console is glossy. I never understood the whole thing about keeping them clean, a micro cloth or a swifter duster works wonders. It's not like a switch or vita were you are constantly touching it.

 

I like both so if I can't get the 500mil I will just pick up my spidey pre-order. Another thing not mentioned much is the stand that comes with the 500mil, those stands are hard to find and expensive now and the spider-man doesn't come with one.

This is me with my 20th anniversary system. Knew I should have kept it sealed and use it as a closet filler instead of playing it

The Spider-man Pro is only glossy on the top portion. The bottom two layers are matte. Odd design choice but for me and my ocd its better haha.

That's a good point. The 2tb hd, stand and camera are enough to justify the price I think. Sucks though, I just bought one of those stands last prime day. :/

I like that Metro LE too, looks pretty slick and I appreciate not having another massive statue.

I wonder how many of these 500M pro will be shipped with just the shipping label on the actual packaging. Lol

I bought consoles from Best Buy before and they are shipped in boxes. The only thing I ever had delivered in no shipping box was a 50" HDTV. You could tell it was dropped on one corner and the screen was shattered at that corner. Returned it to Best Buy and exchanged for another in store. I wont buy televisions that way again. But consoles I feel confident it will be put in a shipping box.

Surprising. Usually bestbuy makes arrangements with a local courier to get TVs to your door.

My 60in Samsung was delivered that way with no issues.

When I bought that special Gold PS4 a year or so ago they just slapped a shipping label on the PS4's system box.  It arrived undamaged though and thankfully wasn't stolen from my doorstep.

I had $1000 worth of Sony audio equipment sitting on my porch when I got home one day. BB just slapped shipping labels on the retail packaging. Safe neighborhood FTW

I have less expensive stuff left outside my garage in a rain storm many times. You know because it's hard to put it on the porch 10 feet away
