    January 8th. After striking out with Best Buy, I somehow got thru the bots and that is the day the disc version of my PS5 is supposed to arrive from Walmart. Finally, after a month of trying.

    I think It is basically. I’ve seen recommendations just to mainline it to that part, and then focus on side quests after. They make it sound like
    is the most important character in the game after you.
     
    Really want to jump back in. Work has gotten in the way the past couple of days, should be able to play some more tonight.

    I really do blame the sneaker resellers. Your typical camp in front of Walmart scalpers aren’t smart enough to do the work the sneaker resellers are doing. They’ve built teams and complex software to zap stock. Sony should fuck them by pulling an Apple. I do not get why they won’t do that.

    I was in the queue too. I didn’t get one, but it got down to a 28 minute wait before the sold out message went up. All the other times I had done it, never got past the hour plus wait message.

    What life path did you choose?
     
    I put 2 hours in. The city itself is amazing so far. Little touches like sitting down in a booth to talk to a character and being squeezed in as you do by another, and while the character is talking to you, being able to look at the guy squeezing you and say something to him is minor, but really adds to the immersion in a way haven’t seen in an open world game. And on my Pro, it looks good, load times are normal for what it is. One glitch so far, a random guy had his cellphone suspended in air next to where he was talking on his cell phone.

    This whole system sucks. They weren’t prepared to sell online only even though they knew months in advance this was the most likely scenario. I don’t understand why they don’t adopt Apple’s way. Take preorders from everyone that legitimately wants one, and then fill them as you can. I know they can’t mass produce them like an iPhone, but I would ok waiting a month or two as long as I knew for sure I was getting one. The way things are now is terrible for consumers, and personally I think it makes Sony, Microsoft, and these retailers just look bad. It shouldn’t be this hard to spend $500.

    I would say the Steel Series Arctis and the HyperX Cloud Alpha are good choices under $100. I have a pair of Plantronics RIG 500 that I like. I just ordered the Sony Pulse 3D that I will use wired to plug into my Xbox. Otherwise, I’ve never really been a fan of Turtle Beach, Kraken, or Corsair.

    Thanks for the impressions on the headset. I think I will pick one up when I can find it available.
     
    Listened to KFGD like most days, Greg said PS I love you for next week is being moved to Friday. The show normally posts Tuesday morning, the only time they usually move it is to line up with a PlayStation event. I wonder if another embargo is being lifted that day.

    It’s still there but so minimal I’m not sure why they bother. They might just be better off throwing in some cutscenes and leaving the little bit of playable crap out of it.
     
    That does look incredible. Still think it is a sale title for me. Ubisoft games go on sale so quickly, I wouldn’t be surprised to be able to get the gold edition in 3-4 months for $40.

    All valid questions I genuinely hope we get an answer to, Paul. I think Sony is playing the incumbent role if I were to make a political analogy and I certainly don't agree with it or find it to be the best path from a transparency standpoint but at the same time - if they're selling out their console after having shown almost nothing hardware UI/function related? Its hard to argue with the results and people are reluctantly accepting of whatever timetable Sony has in mind. I also don't hate the focus on the games, either as I've said.

    Ok, ok. I didn’t say Sony was doomed. And get your shit together was a bit hyperbolic. My point was more to the huge commitment MS just made to the Xbox brand, regardless if Bethesda ever is a difference maker. And yeah, Sony has been great showing off their games, whereas Xbox hasn’t shown anything. 
    But is them being quiet about the rest because they don’t feel the need to share, or is this coming in hot and they aren’t even sure what may be working at launch? 
     
    And it’s great Miles saves will carry over. Why is it different by game? Has there been any games for Xbox where they said saves won’t carry over?

    I have had no luck getting a preorder. I got as close as the complete payment screen. I have started to resign myself to the fact I will probably not be there day one for a console launch since before the original PlayStation.

    If anyone wants to play a fun arcade racer, give Hotshot Racing a try. As someone who misses old school racers like Outrun, Daytona, and Burnout, this fits nicely among those with what I have played so far.

    That’s what I thought too. But then someone made the point, that while we understand that, the average consumer does not. Sony could probably easily market it as also a fully functional 4K blu ray player along with playing games, and most people would accept that as justification for the extra cost. 
     
    I’ll still stick with $450/400, but $500 is not going to surprise me. Hell, it probably makes more sense. They can always lower the price after, they can’t go up once it is set. And that way they offset the small loss on the DE with the little extra they will make off the disc version.
     
    Just like I felt the Series S existed to undercut the PS5, I feel as if the DE exists to hit that $400 price point. That is the one thing I feel confident about. Which probably means I’m wrong. Tomorrow can’t come soon enough, pretty excited for this.
