Man I’m just finna get my ps5 fixed or replaced without being ps5less. There’s a bit of a weird sound now idk if it’s cool whine, disc drive.. sometimes really loud and fast sounds of coming from disc drive when installing or playing a digital game at the same time. Hasn’t been crashing lately though. Just wondering if putting it on rest mode accidentally caused these things


That’s what I did with my launch unit. It was crazy loud. I heard turn around time is less that 2 weeks. They’re effectively replacing it for a new one.

I do have to wonder at this point, just how many people caved and bought off eBay because they didn't realize the shortage would last this long. At this rate, Christmas is looking like it will happen all over again lol.

I wondered why the DualSense chargers are always out of stock still to this day, but the camera and remote I see all the time. Then I realized you need to charge the controllers (who wants to connect them to the system to charge all the time?) but you don't need the camera and remote nearly as much, if at all. Haha, makes "sense".

Hey Jodou, I ask this legitimately: Why would people cave and spend 50-100% above MSRP to own the PS5 now? Using one for the past two weeks hasn't changed my opinion on it, that it's a nice toy that just isn't ready yet without any exclusive games. Astro is fun though it's just a tech demo.

Rumors trickling down the pipe are saying we are about to go on a PS5 drought...  Supposedly looking to stock other regions again because we have been getting them all.

Doubtful. America is Sony’s best market they’ll prioritize their best market over Europe, Asia, and South America. Since the ps3 American has dominated Sony’s software and hardware sales.

Though the U.S. is their most sold by country. PS4 has 32 million sold in America. Next most sold is 8.3 million in Japan.

For sure, but they are talking about Europe as a market area and Sony has sold more in Europe. If we are going by country then yes, US is the highest. I just think it's important to understand that North America is not Sony's only market.

Anyone's walmart 3/18 order still not shipped? They only have a couple of days to ship mine in order to fulfill the 4/9 date and I have my doubts.

I don't have a solid answer for what foolish people do.

Thing that is BS is in the email they send out it says limited stand alone consoles and bundle... im yet to see a stand alone console sold and eventually they got the smack down put on them buy Nintendo for holding Switches hostage to bundles when that system was new.

Im seriously considering selling my ps5. Haven’t played it in weeks, and I don’t see the need to hold on to it if I don’t play it soon.

My 3/18 walmart order arrived last night. Cool system but I think i like my Series X better. Not real big on the new ps5 interface.. Glad I have both however.

Scam Likely..... is this guy who keeps calling my phone. No idea why. Unrelated to anyone or anything posted on here, which I can only assume is legitimate.

Having both is the way to go. Love both of them for different reasons.

Got my PS5 today. As goofy as it's gonna sound, my favorite feature isn't the loading times, or the haptic feedback, or even the 4K (which my OG PS4 couldn't do).

It's the system-level settings for subtitles. Y'all have no idea what a quality of life improvement it's going to be for me not having to worry about turning subtitles on when I play a new game.

Is it true that the PS5 does not have themes, backgrounds, and folders like the PS4?  Because I really liked those features.

PS4 didn't have them at the beginning either. I'm sure they'll add them in the future
