@theprestige, nice to see you on here, dude, hope you are well - Last of Us Part II second playthrough is just a couple of months away for me dude! Pending at least one of PS5 pre-orders comes through, I am hopeful, though.

For those unaware, one of the classic trackers, but not always time accurate:


Another useful one:


You might have had better success with another/ without one. Stock Informer helped me get a charging station just now on Amazon, looks like it was the only 1 in stock at the time.
I managed to bag a John Lewis one for my son using the website and the sound alarm. Many thanks. Placing the order with the alarm going off added to the adrenalin. He will be over the moon.

I don't do queues out on the high street, anything and anyone can jog on if they think I will queue in my own home, not a chance...

For me, it said In stock, clicking it makes it say Out of stock. And now it just says Out of stock.
It's OK, I have pre-orders from Amazon and GAME. Going by the success rates, errors, retailers such as GAME, and low allocations for this launch, one is back up and a hopeful third is to keep sealed/ untouched for my video games collection.

Just got a digital edition from Zatu Games. I use them for board games but turns out they do video games and consoles as well.

Finally got my pre order with currys. Had got disc version because digital one sold out. Originally I was gonna get digital but actually decided on disc. Just thought even I’ll most likely get all games digitally but I’ll at least have the option of discs if I see a game I want cheap.

I didn't get it wrong. YOU didn't really give any reasonings. You just said people shouldn't fall in to the trap of going digital.
Not to get into an argument or anything but you actually did get it wrong, my friend. You made the incorrect assumption that my reasonings behind remaining faithful to physical media was made through financial concerns, which is actually the least of my concerns regarding that.

Awesome man. Similar here, but the reverse regarding phys/ dig.

I'm not going to be an early adopter this time round. I brought the PS4 about a year after it launched and regretted getting it so early, so i'm going to wait out on the PS5 for a good couple of years at least. Plus the price is too high for me.

Waited in Currys queue for 40 minutes and then informed they'd sold out. Looks like they sold about 5000.

Same. Head up, it's the endgame now sadly, so all about scraping for what's left.

Got mine in with Amazon. I'm going disc as I like the option to buy physical and add to my collection.
I wonder how many units are actually heading to these shores. If its a good amount its really positive they are being snapped up.

There will be a shedload available on the day in the big cities at least.

When Amazon let me down with delivery of my One X, I got one that afternoon from Argos on my way home from work.

I admire your optimism but what is different than the PS4?

Add a global ongoing pandemic and I think anyone not sat on a pre order may struggle.

Then why try and take another Thread Off Topic with your ramblings and jizzing all over Physical Media and calling people out when they choose to spend their hard earned money on a Digital Console.

If you want to debate it or get it off your chest then start a thread in the PS Section about Physical vs Digital and put your reasons in there. Talking down to people about falling into a trap or being conned because they don't care about discs when they are just trying to pre-order a new toy is just not cool man.
