#14412636 Playstation 5 Re-stock Thread

Posted by darthbster31 on 27 July 2021 - 07:40 PM

Been kinda swaying back and forth on wanting a PS5, but seeing these crazy-priced bundles really pushes me back off the fence into the firm "nope" camp. While the games included aren't the worst (minus sports titles), I don't feel like paying retail for stuff I'll pick up later on (for cheaper). Guess I should just keep holding off til next year (unless I happen to stumble upon a decent Target/WM drop with no bundled junk).


Yeah, most of the bundles are just way overpriced for what you get. I lucked out and snagged just a console on Amazon during one of their midnight drops. I was on the fence like you and satisfied with my pro, but on a whim grabbed it without much afterthought. I will say, the console really does feel premium and next gen. Load times are non existent, UI is smooth, and the Dualsense is a great controller.

Every time I hear 'Jeremy' or "Interstate Love Song' on the classic rock station, I die a little inside.


Yep! About 3 or 4 years ago I heard Collective Soul's shine on mine and was like, what? That songs not that old! Then I remembered it came out in '93 and was 25 years old at the time . I heard 3 doors down's "Kryptonite" on it a couple days ago. Felt the same...

So, I finally scored a PS5 and am now looking to offload my PS4 pro. I recently upgraded the hdd to a 1 TB ssd and repasted and changed out the thermal pads. What do y'all think would be a reasonable price to sell it at? 3-350? Should I ask for more?

I've looked at FB marketplace and OfferUp and there are price points all over the place. Thanks for any insights.

It’s unbelievable how many people get bitchy with them when they fail to get a console. It’s like chill dude, it isn’t like he’s the one selling the things!


Yeah, it's really sad to see all the hate, but unfortunately that's the internet these days. Both those guys seem like really good dudes. It was definitely a frustrating journey at times, been trying for 2 months to no avail and then within the last week I've managed to get both the PS5 and Series X. Just takes persistence.

I managed to score one with the overnight Amazon restock! Matt Swider on Twitter ftw!

I've not received an email from Sony in years. I'm still checked off to receive them though, so idk. Guess I'll try with the masses again and hope for the best. I managed to get to 2 minutes out in the queue last time, maybe this one will be the lucky one...

Tried playing Call of the sea, really started to get into it but I can't continue past Chapter 2. It hard crashes my one x during a cutscene. Apparently, this is a known issue and still hasn't been fixed. Ugh.

I remember buying Breath of Fire 2 for 80 bucks at a KB toys 30 miles from my house because that's the only store who had it. We've been conditioned to have cheaper games since the PS1, so why is it so far fetched for people to be upset about spending that much on entertainment?

I'm not going to drop that kind of money on some flavor of the year game like CoD or a sports game. Give me a solid action/adventure or rpg and I might be more inclined. Isn't this site cheapassgamer?

Yeah, you're going to have to reformat and redownload. Really dumb feature in my opinion. There's ways around it, but they require modding your system.

Not sure what's wrong with the Microsoft Rewards top 10 punch card, but I activated it, green check, I got two achievements in the Master Chief Collection, one last night, one just now, and they aren't registering for the punch. Anyone know what's up?
The only two games I have access to in the list are MCC and State of Decay 2, and I don't have any easy achievements left in that game unfortunately.


Same. Looking at the rewards reddit, apparently it's not tracking for MCC. Other people had luck with Battletoads, I'm going to try it later.

A zelda 2 remake and a Lttp/Link between worlds combo pack would be most welcome.

He has a point. I used to work at GameStop. Wasn't happy with the pay of course so stuck it out until I found something better. Which wasn't hard weeks later.
That's why I have an issue with people bringing up GameStop employees pay as if there's a certain pay rate someone has to make to where you can be an asshole to them


You're missing the point. It's not about wages. It's about not being a damn dick when you go to a store just because. If you can't be nice to people, use the website.

I think the scary part after today is that the trading apps are able to restrict users from buying a specific stock at any time just for the hell of it.


This. So much for the free market. Only works when the top 0.1 do as they please.
