Let them work out the faulty hardware, and amass a respectable library.


Bingo. And who could forget the famous "RROD" (Red Ring of Death) on the Xbox 360's initial production run? I think it took them almost a year to finally admit that they were bad and rectify the situation. I think unless there is just some exclusive you're absolutely DYING to play, wait a year or so before bothering to pick up any 'new' console and let the early adopters help work out the kinks.

I got my hopes up when I saw PS5 going for $500 on Ebay. Unfortunately it was for a picture of Playstation 5! Always someone trying to scam every nickel and dime out of you, it makes me sick!

I really don't need it until spring when MLB The Show comes out. Actually I'm more into the PS5 Cubs than I am the real ones. Partially because we told Comcast to go *bleep* themselves and YouTube TV doesn't carry the Marquee Network.

As soon as people quit buying them from scalpers the supply in stores will increase.

I was about to buy one from a scalper until I read this:

So hopefully they'll be in stock soon. Most of the ones available on Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace around Chicago are in the ghetto, so as good as their prices may be, I am NOT about to go into any of those neighborhoods.
