Quick, its up now if you want the disk console. $749 delivered
Thanks op, got one!
ez, thanks op
It's still in stock! Delivery is fast, JB told me stock is arriving in 1-2 weeks!
I would of bought this 100%< but I saved 20% on JB Gift Cards!
How do you get 20% off on gift cards?
Last year, between ZIP BONUS 10% AND 10% OFF GCs
Technically was 19%? :)
@Junnyjun: Actually still 10%
10% off of 350 = 315
10% off of 400 = 360
$315 + $360 = $675 = 10% off $750
Edit: Nvm I can't read
@Frankiijayy: Nah i think he meant 10% off gc was on sale. Then he used 10% zip.
Then he paid with zip. So he gets 10% off 90.
Which is 81. Soooo its 19%
Ozbargainer me still not letting myself buy it for RRP. I am stuck on checkout page
Can always buy first think later on Amazon.
Still sitting in my cart as well, i think i'll pass until PS5 has more games and discount and keep playing the PS4 Pro meanwhile.
Ps4 pro value is going down, the longer you wait the less it will be worth. Something to consider if you are going to sell. Having had it since nov I can’t recommend highly enough. Everything is faster, if you multi a lot it speeds up every aspect, like creating and joining parties, loading games is hugely much faster. No more turn the ps on and make a coffee.
That's a good point as well regarding resell value & speed
I have no issues with PS4 pro loading time tbh. Gives me a little break as well. Playing spiderman, I don't think it ever took longer than 10 seconds. Loading up is fast as well, no way can I make a coffee in time. Do I just have a fast PlayStation compared to everyone else or am I just slow?
@bkhm: Ps4pro and ps5 is worlds apart, and tbh with the pro resale value not sure it's worth holding on if you want next gen experience.
Funnily ps4pro will remain high in resale for lil longer, not sure what you're holding out years for nextgen for few hundred bucks. Unless you've always been planning to keep your ps for sentimental value.
@bkhm: I have a pc too so the load times stood out to me. It’s more than double what my pc does, and now ps5 is near instant.
@bkhm: The difference is absolutely gigantic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Epio5YhN8M
@ronburgundy11: Yeah I've seen those videos, I know the difference is huge. What I'm saying is the PS4 pro loading time isn't even bad
@bkhm: Suppose just a hint if you have the chance or willing to pay that lil bit extra… It is worth it :)
I'm planning to keep my PS4 Pro after I get my PS5 just as a backup. While PS5 stock is as short then if it dies I can't just return it to the shop and swap it straight over for a new one, I'll probably be having to wait a while for replacement or repair, so I'll have the Pro to play while I wait. I might think about letting it go once PS5's are easily available.
@AngusD: Oh yea fair enough! I don't think you will be able to play any of your PS5 save games though, it doesn't go backwards. Only if they are converted to PS5 games that is. I don't think I've ever had a console die on me, the closest I got was with the X360 which had RROD, but it was 6 years old haha
@onlinepred: Yeah, but I'll probably still be playing a lot of PS4 games for the rest of this year. I play a lot of Battlefield 5 with some friends (at least until BF6 comes out), and I just started Divinity Original Sin 2 which will probably take me 100+ hours. After that I've got 3 Dark Souls games waiting for me, too, and I have a raging Slay The Spire addiction for which I should probably seek professional help. All those PS4 games should happily go back and forth from PS4 to PS5 and back via the cloud saves?
@AngusD: I know they go forward, I don't know about back. You would be looking at the PS5 save game on the PS4, not sure if you can do that?
@onlinepred: I'm assuming a PS4 game saved on PS5 is still a PS4 save. I guess no way to tell for sure until I try it. Even if it doesn't go backwards, the fact remains that if my PS5 drops dead and I can't get an immediate replacement then I'm still better off having my PS4 Pro to play SOMETHING on rather than sitting around with nothing, or having to fall back on my PC which I don't really like gaming on for extended periods of time as it feels too much like I'm at work :P
@AngusD: PS4 games will only have PS4 saves if they do not get a PS5 update. The second they get a PS5 update, the save games become PS5 save game.
@onlinepred: Ah, right, thanks.
Oh well, I'm sure I've got plenty of games that haven't had / won't get PS5 updates, so I'll be right for something to play in case of emergency. Hopefully it won't come to that anyway!
@AngusD: Yea I weighed it up, but ended up getting the Amazon pre order for $670, and selling the pro for $400. I'll just watch TV/movies if the PS5 ever breaks haha.
That's a good idea. Might finally set-up my PS4 Pro, which i bought 3 1/2 yrs ago, for $350 @ Big W. Family staff discount helped a bit there…😎😂
I learnt from PS4, it takes years to even go on sale! It'll be a long time!
That's why I grabbed those Gift Cards, it'll cost me $608
Which gift cards for that price? I'm guessing disk version? Best I can get is 6% gift cards through suncorp to bring it to $708
Late last year, ZIP had 10% and GC were on sale 10%
Any version you want, I have GC totalling $750.
@Adelv: Nice, I was just going to wait till stock became regular and use the 6%. Seems that's not going to be anytime soon. Doubt there will even be a black Friday discount at this rate.
@Damannation: I doubt it!
Yea I got a few $k in those haha. I got the amazon pre order and will use the cards for bigger discounts ;-)
I agree! But the price won't be below RRP for a while yet.
I'd consider either.
A. Getting it now, and just biting the bullet, selling the PS4p.
B. Buying it and if you have buyers remorse sell it for what you paid (or slightly higher). You shouldn't feel bad as thats what the going rate is.
To add to everyone's considerations whether to buy now or later, keep in mind that PS5 is a huge item. I'd be happy to pay more for a smaller version, which will probably drop later. In a year. Or two, three - hell knows.
And hopefully it's going to be less ugly AF, but that's subjective, ofcourse.
Hmmm…still there a few seconds later. What's going on? Have Sony caught up finally?
Wow, still up somehow
Ordered, patted myself on the back as I was able to join the exclusive club of members that successfully got in an order… Then cancelled. Made my night, thanks OP!
Hahahahaha.. good one. You had us in the first half of that comment.
got one, very easy this time
Spotted this randomly while checking the price on coffee beans.
The deed is done.
Wow, still in stock after 11 minutes!
Ordered one. Thanks 👍
Looks like Amazon recieved a decent amount of stock going by the fact that it's still available to purchase.
When in doubt
Buy now, think later
Amazing, Finally got one
Got one, thx op
Thanks got one finally
Debated it for a min, decided to jump on it but when I pressed buy now it says not in stock from the seller. Page has changed from "In stock, order now to have delivery tomorrow" to just "In stock" but unable to purchase. Delivery date is now listed as 21 May instead of 19th. Having trouble finding the link to view 'other sellers'.
“Failed to add an item to the cart.”
Back in stock again. Be quick.
Says in stock but won't actually let you buy it, it's gone.
Nope, sorry you missed it. Says in stock but won't actually let you buy it, it's gone.
14 mins alive means they had a ton . Flippers had better get out fast end of days lol :)
how much is it getting flipped for?
Had a friend that got two because they preordered but then it came in quicker than expected. Girlfriend got him one as a surprise. Sold the other one for $850 within two hours of putting it up for sale. So definitely can still get a decent amount.
Doesn't really say much. Xbox Series X was in stock for hours on Microsoft's website a couple months back.
Series X harder to find than PS5s nowadays.
Hope they get stuck with a heaps.
How much do they flip it for? hahaha
lol just on the weekend I lucked out on a Xbox series x after months of trying for it or PS5.
Now 3 days later, this pops up.
Following the ozbargain creed of buy now think later, I've bought one. Thanks op! (my cc hates you though)
No it wont let you add it to cart, missed out for the 59th time.
Maybe try adding to cart before you say 'still up' next time
His mouth is open but the brain is closed for the day XD Happens lol
My wife has told me I'm Forbidden (West) from owning this absolute God of (a) War-machine, so I had to Returnal my purchase lest there be Bloodborne.
Looks like I'll be the Last of Us to own one… unless I can change her Persona and enter the Uncharted waters of a PS5 owner.
…Ghost of Tsushima…
Found the Sackboy.
Oof my punny story really didn't land :(
Upvoted to restore some balance to the force
Would you look at that, from -7 back to even.
Looks like I've got a Knack for these things.
You can stash it in the roof cavity .. she would never know.
Will the digital drop soon?
Listed 5 mins after your comment. Sold out already
I went to buy it.
Saw it after 1 minute, but then realised I have a ps4 that I dont even use.
$749 plus games….
Ill see myself out. 🤣🤣
Just get one, it's a household staple and gonna last for prob 5 to10 years.
By the time I start playing it, a 6 will be a available!
Game steaming will become commonplace long before “5 to 10 years.”
Google Stadia went really well. Despite all of the effort that went into it.
I'm the same. I really want one for spider Man, horizon and ratchet and clank but I don't think I can justify the money right now :( curse my frugality.
Digital edition available if anyone interested
The digital version is in stock for $599.95
Oos for digital too
Ugh, notification took 30 minutes to come through damn.
I've been seeing a few posts like these on marketplace (https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/910863039493189/?r...). I contacted them out of curiosity and they provided a location for pick up, what's the scam here?
I believe anyone who is replying robotic is risky to transact with. I normally have some conversation around product till i get confidence for legit person and not a scamer. Normally scammers are very robotic or they insist a lot for you to travel some remote place! just my experience
It was central Perth, at a shopping centre. I'm not gonna check it out since I'm not in the market for one but yeah, I guess saying they're far and they'll deliver isna typical one
It’s a Scam. No one will sell at a lose, especially a hot item like the PS5.
Why do you think its a scam?
You can request them to do the transaction at a police station.
It is absolutely a scam. Dodgy FB profile says it all.
Check with your local JB store, staffer rang me to tell me they have incoming stock within a week or 2.
Good Guys was accepting preorders, expected in 6-8 weeks
I rang my local JB… said the same thing today… So went put $50 deposit…Told end of next week..Awesome
Supply and demand, lucky people aren't too stupid.
Ordered thanks OP. Just wondering, could we get cash back via cashrewards or shopback?
It is in a 0% category.
you can buy Amazon gift cards with 2% cash back on shopback app
