I've been able to basket a couple ps5s but figure I might as well make money on them, if I bought them (Lost hundreds gambling this week). Just don't try do it on your phone I guess since pc is faster.

Is there even much of a profit margin for PS5?, with ebay and paypal fees, but more importantly bullshit scammers trying to pull one over. Not worth the effort unless you can double what you paid.

Raffling them on facebook seems to be the best profit, done a few GPUs on ebay and it's been more than worth it.

Getting a decent GPU is next to impossible if you don't have decent money. I'm still waiting for the prices to fall but yeah rendering at home is driving me nuts with my home setup.

You can easily get £250 plus on rrp on pretty much all the 3xxx series, worth using credit cards etc to buy then sell.

2xxx series is still selling high as fuck, sold my 2060 super for 470 which is more than I paid for it, after 6 months is use.

Problem is getting them, its nice money to be made for sure but knowing my luck I buy them and then have to sell for less than what I paid.

Its like back what everyone was buying gpu for mining, good stuff there Dreep.

Sold a few before xmas, eBay £1 listings really helped. £26 postage was a bit annoying but made around £250 on each of them.

Have been following them going back in stock on various discord's etc but I just shit myself every-time I posted one out, fully expecting the "The box was empty" scam. CBA any more!

Have there been any major problems reported with the ps5s yet? Can't remember a launch console from Sony that didn't have some kind of defect

Edit: actually scratch that my ps vita from launch is still in top condition, wish that thing wasnt their last portable

Not had any issues with mine . Some reports of putting the console into rest mode bricking it but think that’s been fixed now .

That’s all they same to do now is just remake games. There’s no games on the switch other than Zelda and remakes

I mostly want one as I didn't get a console last generation, want something to play those games on that won't be obsolete in a year

Cmon Mario Odyssey, Luigi Mansion, Animal Crossing and more, there's some gold on the Switch.

Switch has been absolutely great to have during lockdown and the indie games on there are fantastic too.

Currently really enjoying Hades, dead cells and hollow knight.

Like being able to play civ 6 on the TV too
