    Sold out already? Page can not be found

    Edit** Typing it in manually brings it up for delivery. Ty!

      Doesn’t link to it but just search for it, still available.

    Sorry, looks like it’s too late by the time I managed to checkout one and post here.

      When you check out it’s free. Plus how can $8 delivery fee “kill the deal” for you? Not worth getting one now for a minor amount more?

        Wooosh….. I guess it is too early in the morning for some to understand

        BTW, It was adding the delivery fee all the way to the payment screen. Anyhow, I have 3 BigW's within a few minutes drive from me, so why would I pay a delivery fee, I am a true OzB'er.

      I’ve got a 3080 you can have for retail too, but it’s going to cost you $8 shipping?

          Yeah it's probably been discussed a 100 times, the shortage is affecting things like NBN HFC NTDs and a bunch of other industries, not just gaming.

                @PainToad: Why did you?

                Clearly you are in the minority when it comes to being upset with these posts, but instead of just scrolling past you feel the need to comment and ruin your day.

                Many people want this item, so availibility becomes the deal. If it's not for you, scroll on.

                    Maybe someone views this item as essential, but feel as if you are in a position to tell them they're opinion doesn't matter?

                    Every comment you make is forming my argument for me and goes against everything you say. Get some consistency.

                    You can post your negative comments, and they will be responded to accordingly.

                      I fail to see how video games are essential. But sure, someone can have that opinion if they wish. Hope they never have to go without real essential items like food but.

                        "You fail to see" - isn't your whole argument based on other people's opinions and freedoms? Or only your own?

                            I've also had a look through other deal posts for things like headphones, TV's etc. I don't see any comments from you discussing whether they are essential or not. Where's the consistency?

                            If all you're after is toilet paper and food then perhaps a Coles forum is more suited. I can see this one providing anxiety.

                                @PainToad: Ah ok, I get it now. A non-essential item discounted becomes an essential item. So a discounted TV becomes as essential as food and toilet paper as you previously described. That is absolutely flawless.

                                  No.

                                  1. A discounted item is a bargain.

                                  2. An essential items is something I must buy now regardless of it's price.

                                  3. I personally try to avoid paying RRP unless it's essential (ie. I have no choice and can't wait).

                                  4. A video game console isn't essential imo, so I'll wait and not pay RRP in the future when shortages ease up.

                                  Hope that makes it simple enough for you to understand my opinion. You don't have to agree with it. Have a good day.

        Not sure if the 5x was targeted or if anyone clicking on that link got it. I tried after purchase but still only showed 750 points

          You did better than me, I did a guest checkout. Got no points at all. Don't know if I can still get points, would be nice to get $19 worth of points.

            •  

              @cc23: How I think about it is that the PS5 is only for their exclusives. As far as I can tell there's not enough reason yet to shell out for the games that are there, particularly when they're trying to charge so much for the games. Give them a year or so and I'll get a PS5 for sure, and hopefully can get some decent deals on the worthwhile exclusives.

            @rainbowyen: The Medium already launched 28/Jan/21.

            Your comment is weird, I assume you already have a PS5 if you are only interested in exclusive XBSX titles. But then of course games are expensive, when they are brand new and exclusive. Wait 1-2 years and the prices on the new releases might drop.

            For everyone else, I think most of us are still trying to work through our back-catalogue of up-compatible games on the new consoles.

    So with these being rare as hens teeth, how many games fully utilize the specs on this compared to the old model? There'd be hardly any point in game makers investing or releasing much until these are easily obtained.

    • -3 votes

      That is akin to saying that iOS developers shouldn't develop apps because iPhones were sold out during the early days. It isn't rare, it's popular.

      •  

        No it's akin to saying that iOS developers shouldn't focus on adding extra benefits to apps running on newer model iPhones because the older models have a larger market share.

        Same as console developers continue to use older engines in the early years of a new generation so they can continue to support previous generations because there's more customers to sell to. Focus eventually switches to the current generation as adoption picks up.

        Which is completely logical.

      I wouldn't say any "fully utilise" the features as dev kits have only been in developers hands for 1-2yrs.

      But many games take advantage of the extra power, just not 'fully'.

      You have Ori which is 4k/120fps for example.
      There are about 80 back catalogue games which have their frame rate doubled (many up to 120fps).
      Many newer games have advanced features like 4k, higher frames or more consistent frame rate than last gen.

      Many games see loading times cut significantly.

      Most, if not all, games use the quick resume feature so you can instantly bounce between games.

    •  

      As with most new console releases, even ones that aren't backwards compatible, it will take devs a while to "fully utilize" the new specs. Same with modern PCs etc.

      Many games do benefit from the new specs when compared to the older Xbox hardware as far as average framerates, minimum framerate consistency, resolution and resolution consistency (less upscaling required) and the big one being greatly reduced load times.
      At the end of the day these consoles are just x86 PCs now and so it'll be the same story as in PC gaming, all games generally run fine on mid range PC hardware but the better the hardware in the PC the better the framerates, resolution and load times, and the longer it'll last into the future.

      Given how many of the older consoles are out there and the fact they are compatible with (but slower) than the new consoles, it won't surprise me if developers continue to release games for both current and last gen consoles for several years, with various visual and performance improvements able to be shown off on the newer consoles. Just like they do with PC gaming, but instead of covering thousands of configurations and leaving it up to the buyer to set their preferred visual settings, they just need to tune the game settings to a few different spec of consoles to hit their framerate targets.
