I agree with you, I don't feel it's worth the mental energy, time and stress. If it ends up being several months before I can buy a PS5 then so be it. I've got enough PS4 games to last me much longer than that.

Spare a thought for those of us in Sweden (or other smaller EU countries.) Some retailers still haven't fulfilled their pre-orders and news of new stock is very rare. Apparently a few more coming at the end of this month, but they will have already been pre-ordered. I was hoping for March/April, but starting to suspect it'll be Xmas 2021 for me...

@FleetCasual Good luck! It looks like the wait will be longer for almost all of us than we were lead to believe.

This week, the CEO of AMD said that the shortage of parts on their end will persist into the second half of this year, which will directly effect how many PS5 units Sony can get onto the market. So even before you get to the problems caused by Covid and the evil scalpers, there have to be consoles being made to get to the people. And whenever production is able to ramp up more than it is - whether that's July, or later, then my guess is that the current problems we're facing will still take months to go away. So we're probably looking at September as an absolute best case scenario right now.

Kind of a perfect storm with the current PS5 situation and now AMD announcing their forecast. A terrible perfect storm. The situation is quite unique. Scalpers buying systems so Sony get sales numbers but then games charts show and software is down. I wonder why? Something to do with millions being stuck in scalping POS criminals basements perhaps? Just a guess.

It would have offered an advantage, of sorts, to Microsoft but Sony should have delayed launch until at least this summer.
