Sony has said that the PS5 will be released for the holiday season 2020. November - December. That first offering is usually for Japan and North America. Is there as rumors to when the PS5 will be ava

There are no rumours as far as I am aware, but with the PS4, Thailand got it officially 2 months after North America, which was a month before Japan got it! Seeing as there have been the COVID-19 related manufacturing issues, it is likely the PS5 release will be delayed for small markets like Thailand. If you are in a rush, you can always get it at Play-Asia and pay a considerable premium.

Might have to bite the bullet and pay the playasia premium price... The preorders are sold out at home in Australia till middle of next year apparently.. That's crazy. Might have to end up with an xbox?

i take time to finish AAA titles, which puts me at a disadvantage with game pass ultimate. at $15/month, i'll have to finish a AAA game in 5 months or less to get the same value. any longer, it makes better sense to buy the game instead of game pass.

 

at any rate, i'm not in a hurry to get either one. my backlog is likely to keep me busy until the PS8 or "xbox series whatever" comes out.

5 months to finish a game? I am only home when I am not working. I went back to Thailand last year from china for Chinese new year. Flew out on Jan 24 and because of covid-19 came back on Feb 13. It was like 2 days later that they closed the border. I have not been back home since. In those 3 weeks I played and finished Days Gone and Call of Duty Modern Warfare. I am sure that you are a busy man. Which is why it takes you 5 months. I can only play when I am home. Kids Ps4. When I get into a game it is like a drug. I play like an addict. My father bought my brothers and I an Atari 2600 in 1980. He paid $500 for it. You do the inflation. I have owned every system since. Addiction??? well yes. It is a great way to bond with your children. All I am saying is that I can not wait? I bought my boys Last of Us 2 but have not got home yet to play. Can not wait for that as well. My youngest son's favorite game is Dying Light The Following. I am sure that Dying Light 2 on PS5 will not disappoint.  Nor will GTA 6.

I think 2021, if you look at PS4 launch it was November in the major markets, Thailand didn't get it officially until the following January.

 

I guess playasia will allow to order from overseas but the cost might be silly.

I'm tempted to pull the trigger on this as they have xbox series s in stock https://www.play-asia.com/xbox-series-s/13/70dpwz which is 13,000 baht including shipping, so not too outrageous a price.  

 

Anyone used these guys before?  How long is their delivery times to get here?   Would it get held up in customs and what would be the likely custom charge for this?   I'm not sure if I will actually buy it from here as I would prefer the series x (which they do not have in stock), but have a weakness for shiny new toys so may not be able to help myself.

bit late but play-asia is legit.

not sure about taxes because it depends which somchai you get

sometimes its nothing, most times its outrageous.. ymmv.

I was tempted by a Series X from expansys but they had the price at 18500 and they had 2, i didn't buy and now its over 26500

I don't like to participate in their super scalping.. i don't need a series X that much, i have a much better computer and literally thousands of games to play

 

would have bought it closer to retail price tho just because i have xbox gamepass ultimate already
