    The problem is nearly everyone will still be buying demons at £70 so why the hell would Sony bother dropping the price? It's only stubborn people like me who will refuse to be ripped off but I'm in the minority.

    Depends if you think you won't get £70 worth of gameplay out of it, I will, not that I will pay £70 anyway, use credit and the US marketplace, cheaper.

    Saying that, it is the only PS5 I will get for a while, looking forward spending less dosh and concentrating on one game a bit more.

    Xbox Gamepass for PC will be there if I need a change

    Yes but I don't think launch prices or game shopping mentality is indicative of how things will move forward. Of course people are going to spend more on launch games for their new console. I'm not getting a ps5 and then not buying this game, but I'm not going to be buying games that cost that much going forward, and if I do, it'll be rare. I can't speak for anybody else but i don't think I'm alone in thinking that, so I can't help but wonder if sales through next year will be lower at those prices, forcing a rethink.

    Yeah it's dead, apparently. The money will be refunded in 5 working days. Luckily I got the Amazon pre-order. :/

    Peeps moaning about 70 quid games.

    I remember paying that for 007 on the N64 in 1997.

    I seem to recall Street Fighter 2 was about 80 quid on the SNES when it launched. And it sold out everywhere.

    Cartridges were always expensive. I remember getting my PS4 with Killzone for £385 in 2013. The game effectively cost £35 as it was part of a bundle, we've had nothing like that this time and they've increased the price of games.

    Space Invaders on the Atari in 1980 was 27 quid

    40 years of video game advancement for less than three times the price.
    Bargain!

    Edit: £27 in 1980 is equal to £116.65 in today's money.

    @Zyrr It was... I remember looking longingly at adverts for it in magazines.

    However, Street Fighter 2 on the SNES was basically sold as an "impossible port" as it was an absolute game-changer at the time and technically more accomplished other arcade games. The thought of playing it in your home was insane, and you had to pay for the privilege.

    However, I don't think any of the PS5 titles have the same gravity and justification for such a high price tag.

    I notice ShopTo's pre order section message has changed to include Xbox Series X|S and now says people have until the 29th to confirm their pre-orders.

    Street fighter on the mega drive was 60 notes.

    Funny but nowadays I don't buy games till they hit the 20 note sweet spot.

    Just to add fuel to the current-gen gate, Capcom said it's looking into porting RE8 to the PS4 and X1, although they also said it's not guaranteed they will make it.

    I guess it will depend on how well last gen games are still selling next year. If it's like seven years ago, sales of PS4/X1 games should drop sharply despite the massively higher installed base.

    People are always like "you can't just drop 160 million players", but the truth is that software sales for the old consoles, outside of big mainstream games like FIFA and Just Dance, will likely drop off a cliff within months of the new launches.

    Donít think Iíve seen it in here - Demons Souls at 365games is Ďonlyí £64.49. However, they do take money at time of order...

    Oh and £64.95 at tgc, might be coming down a few pounds at a few places then

    @wuntyate can't believe I'm breaking forum stealth and first post in 3 years is to scrounge a PS5 pre-order. That's 2020 for you. Haven't got any spare bog roll have you ?

    If you do have one available and a more regular poster doesn't want it, I'd be pleased to send a total stranger £450

    And what happened to Wuntys 5, 6 & 7 ?

    @TheBlackDog it seems as though this argos order is fine so I'm happy for you to have first dibs on this Amazon order. I remember your tips and support from the running thread well, still getting out there I hope? I seem to recall you doing some pretty extreme runs.

    @wuntyate Cheers - very generous of you. I am still doing a fair bit of running - will have to catch up in the running thread (nearly piped up last time someone mentioned the Loch Ness race - I'd fancy that). Will wait to hear from you to see if the PS5 order becomes available. It's been a bit frustrating that every time pre-orders are up for a few minutes I'm in a meeting or (today) on the school run. I remember playing Demons on the PS3, which was my intro to the Souls games, and probably EG because of that game. So it feels like it'd be good to get on board for Demons, day one if I can. That and I'll finally have an excuse to get a new TV. Thanks again.

    @TheBlackDog good to hear! But yes, it's not a problem. I presume this Amazon order will be good to go, haven't heard otherwise so we can sort it out nearer the time, or whenever suits.

    I expect I will not be fulfilling my PS5 pre-order either, so if none of my actual friends want it, I'll be happy to offer it to the great unwashed here.
