    At one point I stopped being able to pay with my card on psn for some reason and I turned to buying prepaid codes. I saved quite a lot since that day.

    @chrisno21 I have Last of Us 2 coming today for £45, so it's still cheaper and I can sell it if I want to. Probably doubtful that I will honestly, but the option is there.

    You can also set up a Turkish PSN account, use disposable Revolut cards, and use psn4.com for pretty large savings over the UK store.

    When did buying a game become this complicated!?

    Discussion No1 about a joint Christmas present with the boy went better than I expected. Don't think I would have ever bought a console so close to launch.

    He asked independently and everything. No prompting needed.

    You could try the price match guarantee. Whatever she accrues, we will match it. Teaches a bit of fiscal responsibility and gives those random tenners/birthday/holiday/report card money from grandparents a place to go over the year.

    Problem is, shes like a magic money tree. When we did it for the switch, she managed to rack up almost enough to pay for it herself.

    Yeah, might try that. Burns a hole in his pocket though. Mostly gaming related, always after some crap game or other. But he surprised us after his birthday by buying a cricket catching rebound net with grandparent cash, which was expensive but absolutely brilliant. I may have used it more than him.

    Once you tell them they need to pay for water, electricity, food and their bed any money they manage to accumulate tends to disintegrate pretty quickly.

    What? Thatís early. These places pump out 500.000 units a month normally. I think my launch ps4 was made in september 2013 or something.

    Could be only the plastic case shell though, they could start production on those early.

    Donnow, I thought launches in the past were like 1 million units. 3 million would be impressive. Maybe the price will be rather low then if they expect to shift that many. Wasnít ps4 at like 10 million units after one year?

    PS4 sold 4 million units in the first month, and even the X1 sold 3 million units in the first month despite the high price.

    Modern hype machine doesn't really bother with pricing, at least in the launch period.

    Oh wow, seems I totally underestimated launch numbers then.

    Yes, manufacturing takes time. Plus, as Iíve pointed out before, you need to add at least 10 weeks on to the date that they leave China before they actually get to a retailer.

    So no, manufacturing starting last month is definitely not early. 🙂

    If the image is legit it does indeed look larger than Ihad imagined - even with the specs released, seeing it in close proximity to a person that looks like a lot of white to sit next to all my black gadgetry.

    Apparently that's the only one they're making, everyone's just going to have to wait for their go on it.

    I doubt anyone cares except me, but The Avengers devs confirmed that you also get the upgraded PS5 version if you buy the PS4 one:

    https://blog.playstation.com/2020/06/22/marvels-avengers-confirmed-as-free-upgrade-to-ps5/

    I was going to buy it anyway, so it's nice as an option :) They should've given this sort of thing a name. Delivery Smarts? Intelligent Delivery? Clever Delivery? I dunno, I'm not a marketing guy.

    Refresh is one thing, a new more powerful version is another.

    Yeah this is perhaps very naive but I don't see what they could do to make a new machine worth buying in ~3 years like they did with Pro and Xbox did with X. 40k60 maybe, but I don't see that selling boxes in the same way as X/Pro.

    Sure there is going to be more ps5.5 style model. Ps4 was the first model they put out more powerful model than the base model and the gamers wanted it (same with xbox 1x) I agree 4k60 may not be a bigger seller (40k60 would be amazing ;)
