Another tip is if you use an auto-refresh extension on your browser and target a retailer's page like Amazon and set it up so it automatically notifies you if there's a change to the content of the page, e.g."Out of stock" text changing to "In stock" or whatever labels the retailer uses on the page. I've used this one https://autorefresh.io/ in the past and found out to be a bit quicker than Stockinformer as there's less latency between the change and the notification being sent out.

Or just wait a couple months? People out here acting like it's life or death that they get it right NOW

I'm not after one myself, but sharing knowledge of the methods I used to purchase a Nintendo Switch back in April last year to kill some lockdown boredom. Of course I could have waited until September/October when stocks were better, but where's the fun in that? And it currently looks like stock has dried up for that too.

As said already my ps4 broke, I ain't gonna bother getting a ps4 when 5 is 'out' so I'm after a 5. If it wasn't broke I wouldn't care.

Anyone jumped on Warzone recently, there's a new mode called 'Rebirth Resurgence Trios'. Which is decent!

Think I've finally got a PS5 off AO. What's the best game to try out? AC Valhalla?

If anyone's getting FIFA 22

Google is doing a deal whereby you pre-order and can get a free Stadia controller and Chromecast Ultra (4K)

It's "next gen graphics on stadia" if you still haven't grabbed a PS5

Stadia will eventually fold, I wouldn't waste your money.

In terms of everything but the tech, XCloud is vastly superior - the library, the subscription, the versatility, the controller - and pretty soon Xcloud will also be an app on your tv or a Chromecast like dongle. Which is perfect. *Except* for the Stadia streaming tech being light years ahead. I didn't believe in streaming until I tried Stadia - and now I believe.

Until then, Stadia remains the perfect showcase for proving that streaming can work.

Don't know if this is any use, they often do 10% off aswell. Free returns and 12 month warranty if your desperate.
