    I hate people that pay double or more from resellers on Ebay and such to get one. You are the problem. Don't feed the monsters. I want to see these SOBs get stuck with a bunch of consoles they don't want. I know...you have the extra money...so why not? Supply and demand. Blah. Meh.

    I know...I'm a hypocrite as I have and would pay extra for concert tickets. Ugg. Eww.

    I draw the line at consoles. o_O

    I audibly laughed out loud when reading that.

    Pure gold.

    It's crazy to pay eBay prices for these consoles. Just wait 6 months and they will be everywhere.

    As if his year hasn't already been pure ****. Lulz. Everybody has Covid, nobody has jobs, police shootings, people spitting at each other over masks, and PS5s cost 2500 on Ebay. What a world.

    i believe in the same thing, concerts are a one time event.

    consoles are consumer electronics

    People don’t need ps5s to live lol. If they can’t afford to pay resale for one then obviously they shouldn’t.

    Houston Area: Target in Pearland and Baybrook have PS5 digital editions, 8 each in inventory. Pearland has 4 xbx, Baybrook 5. As of this morning....according to the MyStore app. It won't show on Target's website. The MyStore app tracks Target's inventory...in real-time.

    I'm amazed how SMALL the Xbox Series X is. Just under 11 3/4'' length-wise (on its side), 6 inches...Height and Width. Microsoft really made this small. I can't imagine how small the Series S is.

    Got em! Finally. Got the confirmation email, hopefully they don't cancel the order, hopefully it doesn't get stolen in transit, hopefully it doesn't arrive in pieces. Yeeeeehaw.

    PS Direct. I had the auto-tab refresh running on it every 5secs for the past 5 days, so I bypassed the queue, BUT, was kicked out AFTER the queue started shortly after, and was re-queued about with a wait time of 30min. BUT - it seemed like they kicked the other people that arrived after me out too. Confusing I know. Hard to explain. I don't know.. it was weird. But the vigilance paid off I guess. I feel as though I got lucky. PS Direct is the only site that has some anti-bot measures in place.

    Serious troll job by walmart. At 6pm (pst)...message on ps5 page went straight to 'out of stock'. Usually, there is 60 seconds of refresh chaos...but today, nothing. F U Walmart!
