You obviously do it yourself.
No, why do I want a ps5?
All I am saying is that I set the price and there's no law which can stop an individual setting his/her own price on his/her property.
All this carry on with what this is worth and what that is worth is a loads or rubbish, it's worth what you are prepared to pay.
If you can't afford to pay someone the price they want, then wait a little longer and you'll eventually get it.
Shortages of the latest gadget is not new, my kids had to go without the latest things for Christmas in the 1980s and 90s but eventually they got them.
I can't see the problem in having the ps5 now or getting it in a few months time.
Just think, by you missing out now, some kid will be very happy this Christmas.

The technology in them is way advanced and no doubt the games will be out of this world.
They are not for me because I have no time for gaming.

Few places selling them at launch.. Doubt I'll be lucky enough to get one as all the del boys will have their bots picking them up as quickly as they go live.

Then they'll go straight on ebay for double the price, like the pond life that they are, stopping the people who really want them for the proper rrp

There's loads of PS5's on the internet now.
Most are about the £500 mark but I have seen some on Gumtree for £400.
I have no idea what the recommended selling price is but that's all that is, a suggested retail price.

I am only noticing these because of @Steve30000 who seems to be a games and can't get one.
It looks like these people now are actually in a competition to offload them as soon as possible and are competing on price.
They are hovering about £400 at the moment.
Gaming blah, blah, keep it :lol:

It will be about 180 - 200 quid I would imagine but I don't know.

There was a big thing on the radio about this saying people are spending money again.
Apparently, since the lockdown, we have all spent over £600 less than we normally did for the same period, not sure if it applied to families or individuals.
Also they said that some shops' websites crashed with people trying to buy them and the internet is so much more busy just because of this machine :o
