The only reason i've gone with the Disc one is because I can borrow ps4 (and ps5 I guess) games and keep them 3 weeks at my library.

I was going to hold off (well try) on buying s ps5 for a while until an all black version came out. If games are going to come out on PC that might help with that :)
Godfall is published by Gearbox, not Sony. While Sony has the console exclusivity, the same wasn't the case for PC.

Sony's plans for its PC releases have varied from title to title, but thus far they've been releasing them on PC a significant time after it's had some exclusivity on the PS4. I assume Horizon: Forbidden West will be the same, although there are rumours that Sony is also releasing it and Spiderman: Miles Morales on PS4.

I'm not sure why I preordered a ps5. I have a backlog of ps4 games and I have the pro. I want demon souls but there is no way I'm spending 100 bucks on launch for it. By the time the price drops on launch games I think there will be plenty of ps5 stock. I just hope PS4 games get enhancements in the meantime .

Showed up an hour early at my local eb games and was the last person to reserve one. They only had 8 disc versions available.

Congrats to those who got one. I almost got caught up in the hype but stepped away from F5 and went to bed. Happy to be a gamer now that these things are finally coming out. Cheers

So for those who missed this initial stock wave, what's the best way to stay informed and quickly act when more stock becomes available? What are those fancy websites/bots that email you automatically when stock appears?

thanks

Godfall is neither developed or published by Sony. Also releasing on PC has been pretty normal for 3rd party exclusives for the better part of a decade.

Noted. I guess I got mixed up on that somewhere. Happy to see it's coming out on the PC.

That't the beauty of the pre-order, you have a few weeks to make a final decision. But you are probably right, next summer when more titles are released along with stock there will be nice trade in offers to go along with them.

Same here. I was up until 12:55 am EST and apparently they went live at 1:00 am and was all sold out by 1:13 am. No emails or anything even though I was signed up for notification. Absolute garbage. I remember the day they would hold some units for Prime members. Now they couldn't give a rats' ass.

This is at Vaughan Mills. Decent lineup but they wouldn’t tell anyone how much they had of what. I do Know that when I got into line they said they only had disc versions left and when I made my deposit 10 min later on my way out they told people everything was sold out.
