HEADS UP! JUST GOT AN EMAIL FROM LONDON DRUGS SAYING THEY ARE RESTOCKING SOME ONLINE PREORDERS AT 3PM PST THIS AFTERNOON!

I've got one already so hoping at least some of you who don't will be successful! Good luck - just about an hour away Smiling Face With Open Mouth.

I purchased a several systems last night that I will be selling at cost in my local area but I will be paying for them with a new credit card that had a big sign up bonus for spending $5000 in 3 months so this purchase basically made me a thousand bucks without actually screwing anyone over!

Not really.. a few people that may or may not have gotten phantom pre-order stock from walmart.
Looks like everyone was last night.

Dark Souls suffered from some dated mechanics and the controls were far from tight. I think moreso than the huge graphic upgrade, you're probably going to see much smoother gameplay/animations which were in Dark Souls 3 / Sekiro. It ties into gameplay big time.

The only unknown is its a different company doing the remake.

Expect new titles to be $90
Sackboy is a full blown game, don't know where you are seeing otherwise. Miles is smaller in scale however, which is why Insomniac chose not to go with regular pricing. Same thing that happened with Uncharted Lost Legacy.

wow, this thread is crazy big. I didn't know people were this excited for the new gen. I'm keeping my PS4 for a while before I am upgrading.

Strange...

I placed my order for the PS5 disc version on bestbuy.ca yesterday at 16 Sep 2020, 16:55. I've even received my order confirmation e-mail a couple of minutes after (with a order#) but I still can't see my order in my order history. I tried looking for my order directly with the order # and no luck either.

This afternoon, I placed an order for two games (Spider-man and ACV) and this order appeared in the following minute.

Now BestBuy support is telling me that it's normal. My order has been created but won't appear in my history until it's been "verified" !?!

Any similar experience?

I think I read that DS4 works on PS5 when playing PS4 games only.

Not sure if DS5 will work on a PS4.

It’s a LBP spin off. Rumour is, it’s missing a lot of things that a full blown LBP game had.

That is odd.. I too got the email confirmation from BB 2mins later after ordering yesterday at 16:32 but when I login I do see it in my order history and it's "In Progress" still.

Not sure what to tell you, looking at my history nothing is missing, and I got confirmation email.

Doesn't look good (for me). Guess I will try to order elsewhere (when available) to be safe...

So what is London Drugs like? Anyone order things from them before? What's their return policy? They don't have stores where I live.
