    Been trying to find one of these for my older brother for a while online, but all the restocks seem to happen while i'm at work and unable to actually do anything.
    I check a few stock tracker websites about once a day, but of course never any luck.
    Have you all been just been lucky enough to get them locally?

    @MrBonk Nah, never seen one in a shop yet. Got mine at the start of March but that was using a stock checker app on my phone and having a live Youtube tracker running on another TV. Unfortunately if you work or have a family to run around after then the odds are stacked against you, I was just at the right place at the right time, day off and sitting in front of the PC when alarm sounded.

    Pure luck one morning i was looking for a USB cable on argos here in the Uk and the banner popped up stating PS5 now in stock, and i was not really looking for any of the new consoles yet as i was waiting until 2022 to upgrade, but i just grabbed one and the rest is history. lol

    I have my ps5 horizontal and the stand under it own feet have 2mm thick rubber mats, you know those mats you put to keep thing from moving and have another layer of the on top of stand where stand and ps5 sits. it made it more "stable" use that loosly with added bonus of it has dampened the vibrations noises the come from the internals and or cover? that was amplified by the particle board shelf it is on. i have this strange vibrations/hum that comes and goes every 10 minutes or so when it on and not the from fan and think coming from covers or something right under cover

    I've only ever seen them in CEX at nearly double the price, same with the Series X. I've seen the Series S in a few places.

    I hear Twitter is a good place in terms of keeping an eye on when stocks are due in.

    ^^I have been looking at CEX as they are giving £520 for a PS5, that would make me £70 more than i paid for it, and i am really considering it because i like that PS4 games run great on the PS5 and i like the fast loading times, but i am coming to the conclusion that i don't really need a PS5 at present and this time.......it's a nice bit of tech buuuuuuuuuuut, do i really need it at this time is really nagging me. lol

    Laughed at the comments that watching it at 144p makes it look like real life as it kinda did.

    Understandable. I mean if it isn't doing anything for you right now, sell it, then get another when everything has calmed down in regards to stock and more titles are out for it. I only got one because I was dying to get rid of the Pro. I wanted to re-play some older titles but I can't stand the noise it gives out, even with earphones. I also wanted to get it out of the way and not worry about trying to get one during the Christmas rush.

    The Series X is nice but with a 3090 in my PC, I virtually have no need for one. It would just gather dust.

    ^^^It's all boxed up ready to go, it is a nice bit of kit no doubt about it, but i think i will wait for a more slimmed down version, possibly look at these new consoles again near xmas 2022 as i don't really need them at present, and yes the faster times and the more stable frame rates were nice, but not £450 worth of nice. lol

    Two things impress me most about that are: the lighting, which is pure british-weather-perfect, and, the reflections in the mirror, which have the correct 'objects appear larger than they are' look to them.

    PS5: VRR Update Will Be Available Reportedly in December

    Just speculation at this point. But it would be good news for PS5 owners.
