Sony PlayStation 5 Disc Version $749 Harvey Norman Stock 15/03/2021
Not a bargain but an opportunity for those that haven't got one yet.
What will be quicker, OOS or somebody commenting OzRRP. Find out next time on DBZ…..
I am early today but not buying.
This. Why pay $749? Don't need it for a year or two.
it will still be that price in a year or two.
Price will go up in a year or two the way chip shortage is going.
That is ridiculous. How can there be a chip shortage? You're always bound to find one on some commenter's shoulder.
@Morbo66: US government is now looking into whether consoles and GPUs are causing the shortage which in turn in impacting manufacturing of cars worldwide.
If someone finds a way to mine crypto on a console you probably won't see a console in store for a number of years to come. Console will then go down the same path as GPUs.
@vilester: Why you negged? I've heard that too.
@vilester: Etherium can be mined on the PS5 supposedly.. and preformance is around 90MH/s, so expect PS5s to be even less available if that is the case.
@gizmomelb: My 2070 can do about 50MH/s and isnt feasible given power costs. There may be money to be made mining PS5's but you'll do better buying 3080's instead.
@vilester: A car uses heaps more than any console or gpu.
An ev uses 5 to 100 more than a standard high spec car.
Find a culprit that has always been abused like gaming.
Looks like it's gone
Was that even real?
Probably a bait for web traffic lol
What so stock expected from one of the scummiest retailers in Oz is a bargain ?
its more because they're so limited, a lot of people are grateful to be made aware of stock availability. but honestly i think you know this
It's one thing they can't jack up the price on…
And yes, ps5 its worth the price tag, awesome piece of tech.
Almost 4 months on and it doesn't miss a beat.
Is the Sony Playstation, 5 disc version, like one of those cool CD carousels?
Oh boy did I love my 50+1 disc player
Was posted on Facebook so went instantly
Of course with there 5 stock for the whole of Australia !
So in other words, the stock situation is improving.
This made me lol… :)
I got one via Twitter. Post alerts on Press Start Au.
It’s ironic the PS5’s slogan is ‘Play has no limits’ when stock is so limited everywhere.
I'm gonna allow this as a valid form of irony
I will wait for PS6
We will be dead by then
At this point I believe the PS5 is a myth. No way it's real.
My september 17 preorder agrees.
Ah… you're also one of the EBGames peeps on waiting list?
At least they say the "estimated release" is 31/12/2021.
Hopefully they're not being serious about that… lol
Half a day to preorder on announcement.
I've had 3 so far, if I can get 2 more I've got a freebie out of scalping. You need a script of some sort alerting you of stock to have any real chance of being fast enough.
How much do you make on a flip?
I make sure mine are the cheapest on marketplace - bring down the scalping price a bit hopefully. Normally around 110-150 per item so far.
@Gary Gary Gary: Nice work bru, best of business to you.
HN had Disc version this morning followed by the Digital.
As poster above said, Twitter alerts is the best way.
I estimate a 10-15min window to buy each drop
This may sound really dumb - but who/what do I set the alert for on twitter? The retailers or is there something else

Because Xbox has no games. The Xbox one and by extension series has been essentially “waitbox” for its entire gen.
Wait for 2015 E3
Wait for Scorpio/Xbox X
Wait for 2018 E3
Wait for Halo Infinite
Wait for game pass
*we are here
Wait for Bethesda games to come out
Wait for 2024
Wait for game pass games
Better exclusives like…??
@Intoxicoligist: Crackdown 3…? Oh no he didn’t 🤣🤣 This man must be on crack
Crackdown 3 died before it even released and the only ones who pretended to enjoy it were die hard green eyed Xbox fanboys
And that’s the problem with the Xbox community, instead of standing up and label Crackdown 3 as garbage they do damage control and say it’s great. They then get more garbage games like it
Ori is the only good game on that list. But is it a system seller?
Damn.. Missed out on another $100 voucher! :P
Now the ps5 on Facebook market is about 765-800, so perhaps worth a try for those desperate
Which state. I'm in Qld and still $900-$1000
I've seen them go down a bit for us to disk versions ~$850 in the past week. Although I havent looked at many
Most of those were scams, you'd have to message a fake Facebook mobile phone shop page.. Facebook rife with them atm
@R3XNebular: Ahhh fair, I got mine from JB a month ago so I haven't kept an eye on things.
Doubt it since Cex is still buying them for $850.
LOL. love these posts. equally love the "its nOT a bARgaiN" or "tHis is NoT deAL" whingers. now go neg meeeeeeeeee
Do you like asian women
No decent games released anyway
Exactly it’s peak FOMO consumerism. Wait until mid 2021 or later. I have a series X so im sorted for a while longer.
So basically you fell for the FOMO by buying a Series X? 🤣🤣
No, I was in the right spot at the right time when I purchased it. Otherwise I wouldn’t have been chasing after it
@Griffindinho: To be at the right spot at the right time, you’d have to go looking for it. It doesn’t just pop out of nowhere and end up in your cart like magic lol
It’s ok to though as we all suffer from ‘FOMO consumerism.’ I have just been diagnosed but there’s no treatment, they all out of stock
@OCD Completionist: Nope. I never tried looking for a ps5 or even have alerts set up on my phone. I was at a shopping centre last December and found an Xbox series x. Not that difficult to comprehend. Btw before that I never even tried to pre-order both consoles.
Some people like to play old games in 60 fps and love the fast loading times.
PC can do that.
And probably better to wait them to address the first hardware issues spotted
If you didnt have a PS4 the Playstation Plus Collection that you get with PS5 offers a serious amount of gaming. God of War, The Last of Us, Days Gone, Ratchet and Clank as well as Bloodborne gives people who were on Xbox for a generation (or 2 in my case) to get a chance at playing some of the best exclusives of the past 10 years.
I'll just play the Xbox exclusives on my PC with Games Pass. I can't do that with PS5 games.
