I don't think people are moving on; they're just not frantically searching. Once they see it available, they'll still make the purchase. It's not a lost sale just yet!

Insomniac employees should get one for free. You guys have the only decent games out on the platform. Sony should be spreading some love.

Me, the lowly serf, have tried multiple times and failed. Worst was the last Sony Direct sale I got a good random draw and got in fairly quickly. I was actually able to add one to cart. But by the time I submitted my credit card they ran out. Total tease! Missed by like 40 seconds. It’s impossible to compete with the bots.

Just got me Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart. Amazed onlookers (and myself!) by showing off how it looks - Fidelity mode seems like a Pixar movie playing. I will probably go with Performance RT, of course, once my family loses interest

Didn't take me long to upgrade to deluxe. I hope the devs see some of that too.

First I've seen of it and if I can mute the dialogue I just might try it out. Thanks Mangler, had no idea it was out there.

I accidently hit the back button and it kicked me out of the countdown!


I was in the countdown for the queue with like 2 hours and 45 minutes left and accidently hit the back button on my mouse. It then removed me from the countdown and when the queue was to start it didn't place me in it. Oh well, I guess it just wasn't meant to be.

it apparently got bumped back an hour. About 10 minutes before, the countdown started again. Not very hopeful this time. Last time it said more than an hour but quickly dropped and I was able to at least get it in my cart in like 10 minutes but then it made me enter my address repeatedly and ran out before I could check out. This time, I am still at 30 minutes 20 minutes after the queue actually started.

Got in right after I posted that update above and it was already sold out of both. The first time, they still had digital consoles left for a while even after I ran out of time on the disc. I might just forget about it unless I get the an invite.

It's random where you end up in the queue. It doesn't matter how long you are in the lobby waiting. I got a crappy roll and never even got a chance to buy before they sold out. It's not a bad setup if you actually get lucky because you do have to solve a pretty complex Captcha before you get in queue. I do wonder how many people they actually had in the queue. It'd be a little pointless if 400,000 people were trying to get 5,000 PS5s.... WalMart had a restock too today and that was even MORE frustrating. Went something like this:

Refresh 80 times for 10 mins starting at the exact minute the sale began, The "Add to Cart" button finally appears, Yay! Get's in my cart but now can’t checkout, retry checkout for another 80 times for another 10 mins, screen FINALLY moves to confirm shipping address, Yay! It even says I'll get mine on July 8th (which seemed kind of like a long time but i did not care!!!) Confirm shipping address and hit submit, “This item is no longer available and is removed from your cart”. Start over and starting screen now says no longer in stock. GAAAAA! What a tease. There is just no way to manually beat the bots. It's hopeless. Better luck buying a lottery ticket and winning the $1000 required to buy from a scalper. Something I can easily afford to do. But I have some sort of moral code that says not to give scalpers one penny. Over time, my morality is starting to slip.

I was able to order a bundle from Gamestop today but I realized that the shipping would have it delivered while i was out of town. I then was able to order another bundle and so I tried canceling the first and it wont let me.

Now I have 2 on the way. lol WTH

Look at the bright sides...you can make a family member or friend very happy, and/or you won't have any problems selling it to get your money back.

Congratulations on the score(s)

It looks like I cant cancel because the gift card is a digital code. Hopefully they don't cancel both because it's supposed to be one per customer and is tied to my pro account.

I didn't think of that. I would hope they would only cancel one of them at most.

I have now received tracking for both. One says tomorrow, the other says June 30th. I have a friend that wants the second one. He’s 1300 miles away though so I’ll have to ship it.

Finished Ratchet and Clank. What an amazing game and a real graphical showcase. I give it a solid 9/10.

Insomniac are really killing it. Miles Morales was also very good and Ratchet is a lot of fun. Hope that a Infamous title is also on the way.

The way they use the lighting and graphics in Ratchet is just phenomenal and the gameplay is tight. I have a few trophies to finish so am trying to understand what they are and how I get through for a platinum.

Didn't Insomniac make Resistance: Fall of Man? That was one of my favorite PS3 games.

Nice I think you'll really enjoy it.

On the games front, even though I play relatively few:

Demons Souls remake - wait for a sale. Beautiful, but next to nothing new and the AI is as bad as the original.

Ghost of Tsushima - PS4 title, but as amazing as it gets. Gorgeous and a blast to play.

TLoU2 - not for everyone, but another gorgeous title.

Returnal - true next gen title, roguelike and hyper difficult. Best 3rd person gunplay I've ever enjoyed though, and possibly more satisfying than any other game I've played when you take a boss down, or even clear some levels. Truly addictive and (for me) well worth the price tag.

I’ve just finished Ghost and played TLoU 2 when it came out. My bundle came with ratchet and clank and I have Spider Man: MM that I’ve been waiting to play till I picked up a 5.

I might check out Ratchet and Clank. It's not anything I would normally buy these days, but it might bring back some really good memories of playing the first one with my daughter years (and years lol) ago, that and Spyro
