    Yours may be. Others aren't as lucky.

    I can't afford one right now, but I've just been sent a VIP code for Curry's if anyone wants it?

    My own isn't too bad as it happens, but my brother in law's is very loud. Sony used three different OEMs for the fan unit, and one of the three has an average noise level higher than the other two. So it's just luck of the draw as to which fan manufacturer you have in your own console. He drew the short straw!

    I have a Curry's vip code too valid until Aug 17th. Seems to require a store collection and only has bundles but they are quite reasonable. If anyone wants one let me know in the next day or so otherwise I'll donate it to one of the ps5 stock twitter feeds

    Is there a way to update the NVME's firmware before installing it into the PS5 by using an enclosure for example - assume it won't be possible via PS5 interface. I would want to make sure it has the latest but would be a headache installing it into my PC and lots of others wouldn't have that option...

    I think if you relied on this site for game/shopto forget it, the queues are so big even after a couple of minutes following hotstock alert by the time you in is no stock or bundle's only.
    Amazon maybe, but is a lot of reports of it breaking down with empty carts etc.
    Very seems the best out of everyone and I think with these you could queue late and still have a chance, but they seem to go the bundle route as well for some of their stock allotment albeit not as bad as game/shopto.

    Currys system is a great idea although I didnt get a code when I registered so I guess its a lottery draw rather than a queue.

    I still think only opening up orders in restricted windows is silly, and hopefully with the improved stock levels the retailers stop doing that next year.
