I rarely see one I want, spend the $80 and feel like it wasn't worth the money. The Sony exclusives in particular have just been getting bigger and better, I'm okay with spending another $10 if its going to be an even better experience as developers start creating games with the PS5 full potential.
unfortunately I grew up in the 80's when new games for consoles were hard to come by. I recall paying $80 for Qbert. So yeah , we have had it pretty damn good through the last 20 years.

From The Source yes. From the post above looks like they are still readily available. I don't expect any accessories will become sold out all over.

So why are people so excited about a Digital Only console PS5 when they were totally against it back in 2013 and beyond?

I don't understand the mentality behind it honestly.
People are definitely more accepting of digital only compared to last gen's launch. Still, Microsoft marketed the Xbox One in the worst way possible with DRM even on physical discs that tied to your Xbox account requiring an online connection to verify your game license every 24 hours. They would get blasted this year too if they did this.

I'm torn on this. Debating trying one but I love my HyperX Cloud 2, and I had the Sony Gold and Platinum headsets for PS4 and had to return them because they were a downgrade from my Hyper X. Though I am curious about all this "3D Sound" hype around the PS5. Does anyone know if it's only going to apply to Sony headsets or? HyperX was significantly better at telling which directions foot steps are coming from, so it should be capable for the new PS5 3D sound features in games, I hope.

The thing that worries me the most about digital only console is what happens when Sony shuts down the services?
Let's say 20 years from now, I want to play some PS5 exclusive game that hasn't been remade or that I just simply don't want to repurchase again.
What am I supposed to do? I've purchased a bunch of Wii Games on the store and now that the store is shut, I just lost that money.
I guess it would be fine if you downloaded them all on your console but with the size of games I'm not sure if that's viable.

The virgin promo, if I'm correct with what your referring to, is to join the psp program thesource offers.
But the psp doesn't apply to all items.

I have 4 switches in my home. The two lites, walked into shoppers the day after it was released and got 2. The original, I preordered one and walked into bestbuy for the second a few days later.

PreOrdered launch day PS4, and got one for my brother in law from walmart a few days later.

Animal crossing was hard to get on launch, but I was driving from Ottawa to Renfew(1h) anyways, and I grabbed one at the walmart there.

The most trouble I had was getting RDR2 on launch day. Eb games had a lineup down the block so I went 2 days later and got one.

The only system I have ever had trouble getting was the Wii. I ended up getting one on kiji for $50 over msrp a week after launch.

My bet is still open.
Maybe not too many gamers up there in Kanata?

I live in Ottawa. Between launch day and Christmas I will be able to get my hands on a BNIB PS5 @ MSRP without preordering. I bet you $10. Take the bet or stop talking shit.
Whoa, slow down son, I didn't come here and start the poop talk. And yeah it's not complicated if you just want to fleece a tool or look good on an online forum (snicker) without any effort, no.
But for the thinking gambler you will definitely have to give more, unless you're afraid of looking bad after all your boasting. And who are you anyway? Retail employee by any chance? Maybe you got your fingers on the pulse of knowing when and where there are shipments? Nobody here knows who you are outside of Adam. Talking smack is free, so get your $10 fill I suppose.
c'mon get happy!

Did they confirm you can play all PS4 disc and I thought that you can purchase digital version of PS4 games as well. I probably should look into that.
Yeah...but even if saving...investing a bit more will give you a lot more bang for your buck...and as RFDers that matters a lot too I am sure.

As for the PS4 Discs....yes...Sony confirmed that the majority of the games will be playing on the PS5 without problem and with boosts in frame-rates and/or graphics/resolution in some cases...probably after a patch is applied of some kind in some games.

So, I feel like everyone is REALLY glossing over the $630 pricepoint, here (!!!!!!!!!), and I really don't get why that's happening...
Thanks to a sweet Sony credit card deal, I picked up a launch-day PS4 for, what, like, $340 net? Something like that, anyway. The PS5 is CLOSE TO DOUBLE THAT PRICE! I know it's been 7 years, but, like, my new Toyota Camry didn't cost me $70,000. I'm not paying $8 for a jug of milk. And yet everyone's jizzing in their pants about a $630 (!!!!!!!!!!!!) console? Huh?
Someone please explain this to me.

for anyone that ordered from the source and is concerned about them charging your CC upfront. I called them today and confirmed that your CC only gets charged when the item is shipped. Also confirmed on their website FAQs (scroll down to shopping section) - https://www.thesource.ca/en-ca/faq
