    What's the dB reading on it?
    Disc drive was making some awful noises. Then I realised I put the disc in the wrong way (I've got it vertically and assumed the print side would face out)!

    Before that, please can you give us a brief list of all the consoles that have broken on you in your lifetime?

    Had a Gameboy where the front screen panel fell out but it still works.

    Standard Xbox360 got RROD, was repaired but the disc drive fucked up a few years later

    Xbox One disc drive also broke about a year in but got repaired.

    First pair of Switch joycons both got stick drift.

    Everything else I've had has been trouble free and I imagine still work to this day.

    As long as the coil whine is above 15kHz, I'm going to love the PS5.

    How long do people reckon it will be before you can pick one of these up in a normal manner, walk in to a shop or log on to a website and click buy?

    Think the consensus is around autumn.

    Ha! Got this as I posted.

    ℹ Scalping is becoming less profitable. PS5s price on eBay went average £680 to £620 (disc and dig) with these last drops. Most stores receiving a new shipment of PS5s first week March, there's no reason to buy from scalpers right now #PS5 #ps5stock #ps5restock #Ps4 #ps5ukstock

    Considering manufacturing is fucked for a lot of sectors I'd be saying end of the year.

    I noticed the price on eBay for the digital edition was around £580, I can see myself caving before autumn

    Playstation have really made the whole adult/child account management a pain, haven't they? I'm so used to microsoft's ease of access and configuration that using Sony's service is like going back in time. And having support only monday to Saturday? What? With all the money Playstation make? They can't afford to pay for support staff?

    Sounds like GAME will have a pre order page live this week for PS5 bundles. Typing in Playstation 5 b in the search bar shows the possible options.

    Apparently the scalpers don't target bundles as much? No idea if that's true but if it is then id most likely consider the bundle with an additional controller. Games I can get cheaper with time, the only thing putting me off is its GAME and they charge for delivery.

    Failing that its wait for Currys or Argos again which ill no doubt miss...again

    @Nitrous margins on consoles are tiny and the money is made from everything you buy with/after it. Game are making sure they get some of the after sales by forcing things into bundles. They couldn't give a flying fuck about scalpers.

    Scalpers will just buy bundles too.

    Seems to have been a stock drop on Amazon.it just now and you tend to see other regions updated around the same time, so might be worth mashing F5 a bit if you're on the lookout.

    I guess they’re sold out?

    I just got the platinum on Maneater. Notification pops, hooray, but when I check my trophy list it still says not earned. If I go offline it shows. If I go back online it's still not there. I've tried syncing data but to no avail. Boooo

    @BigOrkWaaagh I had something similar with a game in the PS4. Got it in a few days after it launched. They had to put a patch out to get it to register.

    As this is an older game it might be worth googling in case it is something to do with the setting?

    @Saul_Iscariot it's there now bizarrely. I don't know why it suddenly decided to show as I had accepted defeat and turned it off.

    I'll send this to Sony today, hopefully you can hear clearly the contrast as the fans stop spinning.

    To be fair, mine has definitely never sounded like that. That said, it does sound more like annoying fan noise than coil whine to me. Not quite right either way.

    Yeah, I definitely think it's the fan. I fully expect them to tell me to do one.

    Am I old and deaf or listening for the wrong thing? I heard two ticks but otherwise absolute silence.

    Are you watching it on a PS5?
