For starters its the New Gen and chances are high of it being sold out. The price will not be increasing as they are prices set in stone.

Insane how there’s basically 0 supply for the digital version.
I am sure Sony anticipated disc to be more popular at launch. Probably more units allocated than digital.

If he thinks he can get a bundle deal from a retailer this Black Friday lol

It’s sold out at most retailers.

Eb games tomorrow will be a zoo.

Massive lineups starting early morning to get a preorder or trade in in.

If you don't preorder it, you might not get one for a while (maybe even before Christmas, if that matters to you). There also probably won't be any deals on it for a year.

That’s if you can get it at SDM on launch. I have about 1 Mill in points, but there’s plenty of time between now and launch to liquidate on some big redemption events and flip items into cash to subsidize a day 1 purchase from another source.

Either way SDM point savers will win no matter how they purchase it.
Too many people in the world today that speak liberal but vote conservative.

why the **** wouln'd they say that if it'll increase sales
Where did it say they lied?

They never said anything about low stock.. It's some stupid investor claiming they have low yield rates.

Im way late to this party just seeing this thread now but speaking from experience I got the ps4 for 399 (i think?) the year it got released, sometime after they raised the price by $50. I don't know what will happen or why they raised the price but if supply cannot keep up with demand they might do the same?

Getting struck by lightning?

Snagging a PS5 @ SDM on bonus redemption day?
I'm going to go with getting struck by lightning. Face With Tears Of Joy

I can only imagine how tough it's going to be to land a PS5 at SDM especially the first couple months.

I haven't checked yet, but how many shitheads do you think there will be trying to list their pre-orders on kijiji for a fee for the right to buy it?

SDM will get it but who knows when, months, a year or more... wouldn't bank on it if you want one while it's hot.

People confuse thinking that the shipment of disc is equal to digital. Doesn't work that way.

Unless you work for retail you won't know how many of each Sony allocated to the big stores.
