I got a PS5 back in March by following some people on twitter(witch I would otherwise avoid like the plague) who notify when stock would drop. I got lucky with an alert at like 4 in the morning for a drop at target and had the target app on my phone already installed and ready to go hit add to cart and had to refresh many times but ended up with one for pick up later that day. The day before my birthday even. I do agree that there are not many PS5 games even worth getting a PS5 for but the fact that it plays almost all PS4 games that I have a huge backlog of made it worth it to me because a ton of them run so much better on PS5. I even have the PS4 pro but jumping to PS5 is still big. Alot of games that were 30 fps are now 60 fps not to mention the way faster load times. I do agree don't pay scalpers but I think if you can get one for MSRP its worth it if you have a huge backlog of PS4 games like I do

Titchgamer:
I will prob get one eventually, but I am in no hurry.
Much like the whole fuel crisis BS going on over here atm I refuse to sit in massive ques, get up at 2am or pay over RRP for what should be a off the shelf item.

When I can walk into a shop and buy one I may but much the same as most others on here there aint much thats getting me excited on the new gen.

I finally scored a PS5 - signed up for the invite from Sony and they sent me an email letting me know when to log on and buy one.  I also bought the Miles Morales Spider-Man game and an extra controller.   I don't think I'm going to open it until Christmas... might be a gift for my kid - not sure yet.  Either way, I need to buy a 4K TV to play it on.  I'm eyeing up the 77" LG C7 - it has good reviews so I'll probably bite.  Been putting this off for a while but now I have an excuse.

I will get an Xbox Series X eventually but probably not until next year.

KenToad:
I almost bought a spider-man special edition PS4 Pro at my local second hand shop for $350. That seemed high, especially when I saw all the damage on the case, no original packaging, no game, no stand. At the store, they said that the PS4 demand is going up. I imagine it's because the PS5 is still not widely available.

If the PS5 is fully backwards compatible, then it would make sense to wait and buy a PS5 for retail than deal with that kind of money for old beat up consoles.

Thanks for sharing how you got your PS5.

I think the PS5 is fully backwards compatible so if I do hook it up I'll at least have games to play.  My PS4 collection is quite small.  I played God of War, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Spider-Man, Uncharted 4, Everybody's Golf, Ratchet & Clank and Ghost of Tsushima.  Everything else I played on my Xbox One.  Honestly, I don't need the PS5 but what the hell - it's only money, right?  I rarely buy myself anything these days and this seemed like fun...
