Gone within minutes. Incidentally, "minutes" is how long it took me to sign up for a Prime trial. :(

 

Any chance they'll restock before the end of the month?

I keep getting alerts, and the alerts are becoming a little more frequent, so maybe.

It makes me glad of the way Valve is releasing the Steam Deck. You put your name down and when it's your turn you get the chance to buy one. 

 

I understand the PS5 is on a complete other level when it comes to the scale of the release and the amount of units moved. It would be nice if Sony kept a certain percentage of PS5s for a similar system from their own Web site though

I thought that back in the day this was the general practice, although I may be confusing "preorders for guaranteed stock" with "waiting lists for the next available stock".

 

Is Valve able to control hundreds of bots applying for hardware?

I think the way it worked for the Steam Deck at the start was you had to be a steam member for at least 2 months I think. Plus you can only order 1 per account iirc

Is it still difficult to get hold of a PS5? I’ve got a disc one I really don’t use, so could possibly shift it to a forumite if they still go for a premium

I’d potentially be interested in this if you do.

I bought a disc model at launch and then sold to a mate 11 months later. Ive been looking for a disc model recently and just could not get one.

 

ended up buying one from a Facebook scalper for an extra £70 brand new. Seems to be lots about, new for around this extra premium. 
 

terrible i know - just really wanted to play Elden Ring and GT7
 

PS5 - Pay to Play

Ah man, was showing in stock at amazon for £359 when I had the alert.


Can I ask what you’re using for the Amazon stock alerts ?

I was using the stock informer site and telegram service, and a particular discord channel which I have since left and can't remember the name of, but it had a gecko(?) as the emblem.  I've since turned it all off.

Amazon showing you could “request” opportunity to buy one. 
 

I clicked it but no email yet - how long does it usually take to know if you are successful.

 

need one for psvr2 and trying to avoid bundles - Very have so many stock checker alerts because of their bundling.

I suspect there's no "it takes this long". It's just a "notify" me when you have some stock presumably in the order clicked with a little grace for you to react.

 

It's surprising to me that no-one has been offering the pre-order queue model for buying these things and leaving it to a free for all. I get that it costs some money to manage that queue but I wonder if it would attract a reasonable amount of business from people who just want one for little effort at some point.

I think Amazon can’t be bothered and every other supplier wants to maximise the bullshit bundles.

 

as for the invitation/request - I thought it was different as usually it just says you can’t order it so I assumed they had stock or were about to get some. Fingers crossed I guess 🙂
