    But what about the MP though. It absolutely slaps. 

    Will try it later but you can't give GOTY to a game on a single aspect like MP, RDR2 lost at TGA in 2018 because it's MP component players paid for wasn't even available. Not go go too deep in halo as it's famous for it's MP and it single player story felt just ok to me.

    Tales of arise has one single player element and it does it great.

    Bruh, Halo 5 is better than 99% sp games.


    And Halo Infinite story is more personal. Less of a Sci fi space opera. 


    Which disappointed Halo lore experts. 


    For 99% ppl, story in Infinite is superb. 

    ROFL, i started halo, master chief was bossing around the guy like a egomaniac the story felt like i couldn't care less, also tales of arise is on that list, so halo can do whatever with it's MP but a cross platform gem like tales of arise with it's amazing story focused on slavery and delivered with sublime cell shaded graphics easily beat whatever story they put out to sell a FPS game.

    I love the halo console with the minimal design ,thats how consoles should be . Anything loud like the gear4 red console or the cyberpunk one look good only for few days IMO.


    Also with all the hardware concerns you have ,i doubt buying a limited edition makes sense . What if it has a hardware issue and gets replaced by the regular one :rofl:

    I think MS has minimal reported issues, but by next year big releases i think MS will sort those out, after using the slick one x, series x just looks ugly to me, if they justify the fat shape with some unique design like this below then I'd be existed to buy it, of course not as strapped with content like this but with at least some design choice that looks thematic.

    Hi PS5 owners,

    Between Chroma/ Reliance Digital / Tata Cliq. Which of these websites , we have more chances of procuring a PS5 provided there is a drop in future?  


    I have an option to take a gift card from one of these and was wondering which one to bet on for buying ps5 in 2022. 

    Croma worked for 3 of us here on dec 06 restock, i guess it was missing on dec 28, vijay sales kept redirecting to home page on clicking add to kart or buy now on dec 06, on dec 28 hardly anyone mentioned vijay sales, both times RD had stocks but many of us not in gujrath were seeing delivery not available to our location.

    I wonder ambani and modi should just make RD the poster child of Gujrath, and make the website reliancedigital. gj or something, it hardly work all you do is go there and click on the kem cho link !

    Before anyone says otherwise, all success stories i seen with people posting screenshots online by tagging ICG bot and other places were gujrath addresses.

    Yea there will be for sure ,i am leaning more towards starfield.

    Forza Motorsport will not get any special edition. Starfield is the biggest game of 2022, so it will get huge marketing push

    Thanks needed something concrete like this, I'm leaning more towards starfield as well, unless forza looks too good and startup button sound is of a supercar.

    The halo one disappoints me a bit with it's minimal design instead of going bold with creative ideas that would truly make it feel like 20yr anniversary.

    Same even I got 1008A01R model in the last Dec 6th stocks from Croma with Oct 21 as month & year import, I never bothered checking this as I expected it to be the new model, but in a way its good that its the old bigger stock heatsink model.

    Major difference with heatsinks isn't noticeable yet with current games. But yeah on paper we do get the most coveted batch.

    Series X Never had good amount of stocks , it had low demand man come on now!

    Also my friend was on the same boat 50k or nothing he got it today , just the difference is he does not care what month import , what colour outer box and what does the delivery boy is wearing, because the console has 1 year warranty.

    Maybe your perfectly peachy running PS5 is gonna rub off on him, Cheers

    Hypothetically if a Sony Center offered to sell me a unit that a scalper was selling I would have bought it just to know the scalpers name from the bill and then alerted the authorities. At least that's what I believe we all should be doing in such a case. #humansofplaystation

    Call a sony center then I'm sure you'll find what you are looking for. If you had told me earlier back then I'd have contacted you and either
    A - forwarded the task to the good Samaritan that you are
    B - Ask you for funding because of the good Samaritan that you are

  9. Just now, rushaboswal said:

    Dude il add you to atleast 3 groups where quoted price is 58k and atleast 8 got sold today . You're out of touch with reality.

    Why not quote @blitzkreiig instead of targeting just me, he has known people who are MRP or nothing. If you join scalper only group you will only see scalping and people being scalped , there are people who have piles of cash to throw and buy it, doesn't mean common people do it,  general consensus on channels like brostation, benconsolegamer with 3k viewers on livestream, majority was should i buy series x instead of rarity ps5, at least they have good amount of stocks.

    How can you look at the ground situation and say scalpers are not able to clear stock? People are literally buying forced bundles and scalped units hand over fist.

    Scalpers just bought today the ps5 they gave back to the retailer and now are selling for 57-58k . Did i say it right ?:roflroll:

    Maybe we’re just delayed in the scheme of Sony things. Even the launch was delayed here. 

    Also this is unrelated but who is buying these scalped consoles. All my friends/cousins are like MRP or nothing. 50k is already too high.


    Well the guys above your quote don't think so.

    Even if we were delayed still doesn't explain me getting oct 2021 import and you getting july 2021 import even though we both ordered on dec 06 restock, so the stock should technically be of the same batch.

  11. 1 minute ago, blitzkreiig said:

    Why would a retailer like Amazon buy individual units from scalpers?


    And yes this time the stock was low but most probably it’s because here the main festival is Diwali ( at which time there were ample stocks). It makes sense for Sony to provide more units to US & Europe this time of the year.

    It's not like they are selling 1000 series anywhere now, only 1100A Worldwide but don't you find it strange even for low stocks to be of 1000 series

    I've been following youtuber like brostation, benconsolegamers watching the livestreams during each restock this month, been following reddit, and mass amount of public are being pulled away from buying a scalpped ps5, buyers are becoming aware online with hazard like warranty coverage issue, one sony center guy offered me to let me know if a scalper was selling ps5 bought from them, this was before i was able to buy mine from croma, but i said no as who knows how many months are out on the warranty, plus the purchase receipt will have scalper name and address, i imagine most sane buyer doing the exact same and staying away from scalpers.

    Why would scalpers sell back to websites? The entire point of the exercise is to make money :rofl:

    If they aren't able to make a dime and have 50k+ invested in a non selling ps5 laying around, wouldn't they lose whatever money and give the stock back from the retailer contact they got it from, after following this scalping situation and selling various users takes on their cancelled purchases or no shows like GTS, i do feel this is a possibility.

    Maybe at delivery or ground level. 


    But the quantity of such consoles would be miniscule (compared to volume of other items and overall trade volume), and the amount earned per console would be quite limited. Scalpers also need to earn profit. 

    Bird bhai, GTS always has stocks and only 1 or 2 are able to buy a ps5, same for reliance digital, with FK it used to have stocks but now suddenly sony stopped providing any to them [ a retailer big in india owned by walmart ] isn't it shady AF, wonder how walmart is allowing flipkart to tarnish it's name. So where are these so called minuscule inventories going ?


    Worth putting your job on the line ? 

    Read Here - Seems yes



    Really doubt the portals are doing it. Maybe a bunch of rogue employees. 


    Let's not forget the level of sophistication of bots created for scalping. And it's even worst in Western world. You gotta mix and match bots to get these in hand. Check some twitter handles openly declaring their scalps and tools. 


    Oh, still waiting for a source which says scalpers are selling to FK and Amazon, who are in turn selling them at MRP. Pretty bad business model, eh ? :lol:

    If you get Rs.0 for a ps5 scalped in hopes of getting Rs.70k, wouldn't the scalper recover any money they lost.

    Blitz got a july 2021 PS5 so unlike me who got a oct 2021 ps5, i don''t think it was a leftover unit kept aside for RMA requests only, such a old unit would have been cleared during the diwali peak sale time.

    The world started receiving 1100A model from july onwards, and we seriously should believe india are special enough that sony gives us the most saught after high resale value 1000 model just for MRP ? The only reason here is they are clearing leftover inventory suddenly came to em.

    If i am a company i would as per my country order a fixed minimum amount of stock, not some random numbers like Nitz put it, dec 06 restock 700-800, dec 28 restock 200-300, it may not have even reached a 500 mark.

    You know your country has demand, even though 700-800 is low wouldn't you aim for that again at a peak festive period when kids are pestering parents for ps5, i find it hard to believe sony settled for 200-300 PS5 during christmas and new year period.

  15. 2 hours ago, playstationdude said:

    What he meant was you posted scalpers are selling them to FK.


    FK, amazon, RD selling to scalpers is a very real possibilty. I specifically suspect RD. GTS for sure is scalping units.

    Obviously no one is going to write articles about scalpers selling back to websites, if the highlighted part happens and most of the people aren't buying from scalpers because of online awareness we just have to piece the stuff together, who are these scalpers going to go to get back their money if they don't find a buyer, they will go to these shady retailer contacts, who in turn will either drop a console every now and then like how you see indian console gamer twitter bot randomly posting a couple ps5 units in stock at amazon on any random non restock day, even at 3am in the morning. Or these retailers have the option of sending the stock back to sony saying users cancelled and thus they have inventory left.

    Or else how can any of us justify ever diminishing restocks, and only games the shop, RD and flipkart with near zero success rate, these scalper friendly sites might as well be getting back unsold scalped stocks and then giving it back to sony so they don't lose money, sony thus have hundreds of stocks again and then bingo restock.

    There is a very well connected youtuber Nitz who always has near perfect restock numbers as he has direct sony contacts, and for this months restocks he predicted the low volumes perfectly.

    Now one would ignorantly post TLDR, but you wanted a source, i had to compile all sh*t out there into a single post.

    Feel free to say it's a theory or whatever, I'm not the one looking for a PS5 but i feel really sorry for those who are, because for 7 months i was one of em and know that hell pretty well.

    And none of the comment is aimed at you @playstationdude , just posting because people wanna stay in dental to hard facts you come across while following these console scalpings.

    From the video itself:
    1) He rightly said it at the beginning, around 1 min mark that these are first gen consoles and of course, some issues are bound to come and this is the issue he's facing. 
    2) Most people commenting said that this resolved their issues. Of course, we don't know how long does this last. 
    3) No idea if this is a temp fix or perma fix. If it's bothering you too much, get an RMA. 
    4) No one knows the real cause of the issue.
    Well as for the source i had read a post or article online maybe reddit a while back with users saying flipkart gets stocks and they cancel orders because they sell those cancelled orders to scalpers who later scalp for a larger price. The article or post whatever got enough traction to warrant trusting it.

    You do see this issue is so weird and widely spread there is no guarantee that an RMA will fix this issue. Other issues might arise like coil noise.

    If this is gen 1 then why aren't we seeing many gen 1 xbox series x issues. It was poor quality checking on sony's part.

    Yes now will have to live with it as global situation might not see me getting my RMA unit anytime soon. Since now it's speculated by no post of mine that these restocks are leftover sony stocks.

    None. He just spews random stuff and then gets personal 


    Watch it and then go to 7.20m onward he clearly says he is doing this the second time.

    Sony make a common disk eject mechanism for stuck discs as solution and you guys buy it, they say to turn the screw only till you see the slight glimpse of disc so you can take it out by hand.

    This mechanism was there for ps3 and ps4 it's there only to manually remove stuck discs, it's not gonna do anything to the inside of the drive as the drive itself is the cause of the issue.

    There is noise from the disc drive definitely… 

    Happens mostly for 10-15 seconds on start up and when copying disc data to console. 


    Some people on YouTube fixed it loosening or tightening the disc drive screws, as it’s caused by vibrating disc drive. 

    Sadly those who did faced it again after some time
