    Sony needs permits from NTC to sell these. Permits = Fees = charge to customer.

    iTech held another round of preorders this morning because they had problems with their system yesterday. Unfortunately it's another round of hateful comments and screenshots of error messages from unlucky customers in their comment section that followed.

    Feels like Sony using Supreme marketing gimmick to hype.

    Was able to get one at BestBuy just even without any plans of getting one soon. Just got a Discord alert and tried my luck. Looks like a cousin of mine will be getting a PS5 for Christmas (he called dibs on it) :ROFLMAO:

    I'll just resort to raffle system of PS5 Pre Order by Toy Kingdom.

    40 units only. Registered myself and wife to their google page.

    First revision video console hardware tend to encounter such quality control issues.

    They generally get resolved during the first price cut.

    Did this with the PS4 Pro, PS3, PS2, Xbox 360, Switch, Game Cube, Wii and N64. It also gives 3rd party devs time to improve their games further. Sure you may wait 20 months or so but I saved myself the trouble and $100

    Feeling like I lucked out by not getting the ps5 and series x on day one. Less spending and less day one glitches.

    For those who'd like to know what coil whine sounds like, it sounds like this:



    I had a GTX 960 on my old PC that suffered from this, which eventually died as the fans stopped working. Really annoying if you're not wearing earphones/headphones.
