But you only wanted a 1000 series console on account of more copper.

 

Can't say about Fk but how would Amazon be sourcing from scalpers? 
I think these are left over consoles which they kept for replacement/other contingencies.

Not necessarily, just wanted a console that works without issues, i actually had posted positives of both models

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

I've heard rumours that Sony made Cerny modify the design to make the disc drive noisy. This is to condition users to buy less discs and promote digital purchases which are more profitable for Sony. 

Interesting.

Hope it's not from the same source which said some last gen consoles power brick had a secret GPU hidden inside it?

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.

Source ? How would scalpers fit into the supply chain ? You gotta realise that at the scale of Amazon or Flipkart, supply chain is insanely complex. And these sales only happen whenever official Sony announcements drop. 

Whatever inventory is given throughout must be supplied by Sony. No idea if old stock is getting cleared by Amazon directly, or is Sony getting old stocks from their global supply chain - don't think any of us have that visibility. 

 

Still waiting for a source for scalpers selling consoles to Amazon and FK.

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.

I suspect this too. Had an order of ps5 cancelled under very dubious circumstances. 

Probably ground level staff doing fraud.

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.

I ordered around 12:35 it came and went 

Yes, I also got the Add Cart button 2 or 3 times, but never succeeded. But anytime that is was not in stock, if I clicked the page link for PS5 I always got the not found error.

Page instantly got disabled whenever it was out of stock, i was able to get to address selector twice, pay now and place order twice , and payment selector thrice, this was 9th or 10th try where i made a fake payment attempt which failed and called up my friend for card details when i got the retry payment link, it worked XD
