And all this can be yours in 10-15 years for a single week's rent when people are posting about watching films in 32K on 100inch panels.

(Or perhaps more likely some kind of 4K VR ultra wide.)

How many did you scalp?

;)

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

RichardUK, you're a mad man!

You even overpaid for the games. TLOU2 (365games - £35), Watch Dogs Legion (Shoptop - £46.85), TLOU Remastered (Game Collection - £10).

You could have played all those on PS4, and bought a PS5 when they're back in stock and there's an exclusive game you wanted to play.

"Over 200 Game of the Year awards", yet were any of these from outlets worth a damn?

Well, this is why I charge above average.

There's a hundred grovelling plebs and then there's Richard. You can pay my bills, thank you and welcome.

Edit: That may sound awful. Honestly, 90% of craftspeople are charging very little, even when their work is very good. It's a systemic problem due to post industrial and post digital warping of the value of bespoke goods and services when faced with overseas markets and a constant bitter war, for some unknowable reason, against the value core of one of Britain's highest grossing products - art & entertainment. I simply reject the trend and offer superior quality goods and service :cool:

I also think I have a right to earn a living as much as anyone else, yet at the same time, I'm not desperate for excess income.

And I don't buy PS5s for a thousand pounds, I buy gooseberry fool like printers instead. :toot:

Take what you think you're worth, then double it. Then double it again.

Btw that's obviously the CEX price so tell that to the Eurogamer guy over there.

Edit: Changed my post because I seriously don't want that to be taken out of context off site at some point in the future :slol:

And Amazon Germany had stock of the PS5 headset Friday-Sunday (that’s where I got mine)

Why would anybody be stupid enough to pay that much for a PS5. It just plays into the scalpers hands.
