    Clever if so, but isn't there only the wii and the 360 that's done that?

    Can I register advance interest for a VIP code (if they're a regular thing).

    Ordered a PS5 for a friend's birthday last week from that big forest place. Delivered me a sealed box with three water bottles :rolleyes:. Initially refused refund/replacement - wild.

    He thought I was taking the mick when he opened the box.

    So back to jumping on alerts :(

    It was black at launch. I'm trying to think back when the Destiny white one launched - I'm thinking maybe around Sept after launch. A quick Google says that the glacier white PS4 from Sony came out a year after launch. There may have been others but those are the early ones that I remember.

    Ok then I stand corrected, my original was white, so maybe I brought a bit later.

    I bought the White PS4, which was Destiny edition back in 2014. I am looking at the receipt now dated September 2014.

    You mean before the PS4 even launched? That's impressive! It was 2014 to celebrate Destiny coming to PS4.

    Read wiki. Sorry I'm meaning the ps4 was released a year before the white one, incase it sounded like I meant the white one came out a year before the black one.

    In reality it's nothing to do with getting people to "double dip", it means they can focus manufacturing on a limited number of SKUs and ship as many as possible instead of having to get distributors and retailers to deal (or not, as the case may be) with multiple versions due to colour variations etc.

    Plus the colour is, at this early stage, a key part of the brand and product recognition.

    Looks like this is the BEST time to get one if you want one this side of Christmas, it will start to get harder soon when people who are not gamers decide to get one for the presents.

    Question: Will most if not all ps4 games eventually run at 60fps on ps5?

    I finally have a ps5 and it’s so difficult going from a smooth 60 to a game locked at 30.
