So what stores are left for today and at what times? 

 

Is it Amazon at 12pm supposedly?

Yeah, I dunno about any others, so its shit or bust for me. I have a nasty feeling I wont be getting a PS5 until after Xmas.

 

Edit: Yeah, and Curry's, though we dunno what time for them yet.

Just having a quick debate with my wife about whether it's OK to just call in sick today.

 

She reckons it's unethical, and I get where she's coming from, but what I'd say to that it's that unethical not to

 

Dunno if anyone can settle this for us, please. 


Depends what you do for a job.

 

If you’re a nurse, firefighter or DPD delivery driver, I’d say it’s unethical, otherwise you’re probably ok.

Same.

 

Most of these websites shit the bed when I try to order, or they actually end up selling out before the time they specified they be on sale.

 

I'd also be surprised if Curry's can cancel all existing pre-orders and get them back up within a day...

Still only one active download at a time. Urgh!!

assuming its a queue then that is best isn't it? sharing bandwidth between multiple downloads will just make everything download slower.

 

I also assume if you have something big downloading you queue up smaller stuff and then tell it to push them to the top of the queue.

 

Ahhhhh all assuming you are maxing your connection I guess.

Given the install base guess multiple connections for downloads from multiple devices might cause PSN to grind a bit. It's slow enough at the best of times.

After convincing myself I'd have to wait till after xmas for a PS5.  I'm now sat waiting to see if I can jump on an amazon order.   Will power.   Love it.

 

I'd happily sit this out if there was any prospect of grabbing one in time for unboxing on December 25th, but from all the chatter that's sounding unlikely.

as long as it is maxing the connection speed then its not a problem I don't think.

True. The bandwidth per connection will be throttled at the server end anyhow.... Agree about queuing BTW. Much better to have one thing downloaded quicker than have everything taking forever. At least you get to play something sooner...
