    Warning to prospective PS5 owners
    PS5: Don't do this with your console — it may crash and die

    Gerstmann pointed out that putting the PS5 into rest mode during Spider-Man Remastered crashed the next-gen console, prompting a "repair your external drive" process to begin upon restarting the system.

    "Also every time I've had the PS5 go through that external drive repair sequence, it ends up on a black screen," Gerstmann added. "I have to hit the power button on the console itself to force it into rest mode, then it comes back up and asks me to file an error report, then boots normally."

    GameOne posted their pre-order details. Mark your calendar. Nov 20 2pm. Stocks are very limited.

    Datablitz will also open preorders tomorrow same schedule. Those who are in the mailing list will get a link.

    Temper your expectations. A lot is eager to get a PS5 this launch day. Websites may crash. It's you vs the world/bots tomorrow. May the odds be in your favor.

    Who wants to make a wager that quarantine protocols against mass gatherings will cause business permits to be revoked against brick & mortar retailers?

    If they use their coconuts they'd ship direct to buyers.

    So that was quick..Got mine over at Sony's Lazada store. Even if I bought it from Sony's official online store, delivery date is still scheduled beyond the mentioned launch date.

    Uh oh. Gameline posted on their Facebook that customers were able to preorder more than their allocated units. They will notify their customers within the day to clarify who's gonna get a unit and who missed out.

    New Playstation SKUs comes out every 4-7 years. Sneakers comes out every 4-7 weeks..

    PS5 Digital is "expensive" here.

    Forex used for PS5 is 55.98 = $1.00 while PS5 Digital is 59.98 = $1.00.

    If Digital used the same 55.98 = $1.00 of the PS5 it should cost 22,390. Price diff of 5,600 not 4,000.
