Did you beat the hell out of it on the way home?

u/Jimid41 Oct 21 '21

What he does with his alone time seems like a personal matter but in his shoes I'd definitely be beating it.

u/Mos-Val Oct 21 '21

sadly no.

it was delivered this way and I found out that customs stole some items in the box.

u/BeNintendo Oct 21 '21

Where'd you buy it from? I'd contact them as well to make sure it was shipped intact.

u/mahciHi Oct 21 '21

what did they steal

83

u/ionel424 Oct 21 '21

The console

u/NinjaCuntPunt Oct 21 '21

And controller

u/Rudy69 Oct 21 '21

Don't forget the HDMI cable

u/The_Algerian PC Oct 21 '21

I'm starting to worry they stole the PS5 entirely, delivery was supposed to be this morning, it's 1:33 pm.

u/definetly__human Oct 21 '21

Where do you live where customs can steal stuff from packages?

6

u/Real_Ice_4983 Oct 21 '21

Lol dude this is so common outside the United States and Europe. In Mexico you can count on any package to be missing shit when it gets to you

u/definetly__human Oct 21 '21

Everyday you learn something new, I guess.

u/sh4itan Oct 21 '21

u/The_Algerian PC Oct 22 '21

I live in France actually, and it's fairly common over here. But it's not customs, it's the post office itself, which doesn't acknowledge the reality that there even are thieves among their employees.

u/The_Algerian PC Oct 22 '21

I live in France, and it's fairly common over here.

But it's not customs, it's the post office itself, which doesn't acknowledge the reality that there even are thieves among their employees, which has contributed to make thefts more and more common, since they know they don't risk anything if the post office just keep denying reality and call those incidents "lost packages".

u/icecoldfivefold Oct 21 '21

Don't put it too close to your router or near the in between signal space if u have a sound bar subwoofer. That being said if the HDMI cord is too short and u have to never EVER I repeat NEVER use rest mode. Just trust me buy a second controller and never use rest mode or you'll lose your sanity.

2

u/feelmyice Oct 21 '21

I use rest mode on my ps4 - hasn't been an issue unless there's a power outage.

-11

u/icecoldfivefold Oct 21 '21

I did too but ps5 has a weird issue after using it just trust me bro I'm not trying to troll u just learn from my mistakes

1

u/ohnoabug Oct 21 '21

Hard to learn from a mistake when someone says "don't do this" and doesn't elaborate on the implications of the mistake. Shoot, even saying "don't touch the stove, it's hot and will burn you" doesn't tend to work compared with the reinforcement learning that comes only as a result of touching said stove.

Your advice is in the vein of "Just say no" re: D.A.R.E.

1

u/braedizzle Oct 21 '21

My PS5 has basically lived on Rest Mode since launch day. It’s fine.

2

u/Whatiswrongwithme47 Oct 21 '21

Why should he never use rest mode? Just wondering because I do and it doesn't seem to be a problem.

-12

u/icecoldfivefold Oct 21 '21

I answered someone else asking the same just as u asked lol but when u get the notification just check that cus it's alot to type

2

u/asyrin25 Oct 21 '21

What's wrong with rest mode?

-8

u/icecoldfivefold Oct 21 '21

There's a known bug but for me it made my ps5 constantly disconnect from the wifi which being digital only sucks and somehow made my soundbar constantly disconnect from my soundbar. To fix it I had to boot ps5 on safe mode then turn everything off unplug everything in the room wait 30 minutes and plug everything back in after I said fuck it and rearranged my living room in that time and never use rest mode again

3

u/SellusGravius Oct 21 '21

I'm sorry this happened to you, but I've never heard of this happening to anyone else, and I myself use rest mode all the time and haven't had a single issue. It sounds like just bad luck on your part, but I doubt it warrants telling people they should never ever use rest mode.

-7

u/icecoldfivefold Oct 21 '21

I mean if I can save 1 person from feeling like they wasted 3 months of their life trying to get a ps5 for it to be a huge problem by not using rest mode it's worth it lol that being said im probably biased now

1

u/asyrin25 Oct 21 '21

Huh, weird. I keep my PS5 in rest mode constantly. It's even hooked up to a UPS so it doesn't shut down during occasional power flickers. I've never had a problem.

Have you tried the warranty?

-5

u/icecoldfivefold Oct 21 '21

Naw it seems like a software issue so I'm hoping eventually there's an update that fixes it cus I'm too mentally fried from trying to get a ps5 to send it back for a replacement or fix

3

u/phatprize Oct 21 '21

I mean, in all fairness, if you are the ONLY one reporting this, it is more than likely not a "software" issue. I also have the digital, I also leave mine in rest mode constantly, and It is in the same room as my main mesh wifi router. It sounds VERY much like a hardware problem.

1

u/icecoldfivefold Oct 21 '21

The fed ex guy probably kicked the shit out of it or something cus he looked piss and actually threw the ps5 at me

u/[deleted] Oct 21 '21

Probably didn't want to carry, so he kicked it to home.

what is insurance?

u/Reivoulp Oct 21 '21

How did you manage to get one ?!

u/Mos-Val Oct 21 '21

got it shipped from saudi arabia.

there are some sites there that have it all the time.

I worked with some game developers before.

been an engineer for 11 years.

but the previous couple of years were a bit rough on me.

u/Ferry83 Oct 21 '21

Even here in Netherlands it’s not fully covered, thankfully for me it is due to a “formal” depression.

But we have 4 month waiting lists… The PS5 stupidly helps a hella lot

You leveled up your life, then leveled up your console. Nice work!

u/Achaern Oct 21 '21

So... like... what's the plan? Sell the PS4 to pay for the appointment, roll the therapist and their office and buy a PS5 on the way home? I dig. Sounds maybe like... not ideal but I get it.

2

u/chikkinnveggeeze Oct 22 '21

I mean it's likely a bullshit title. But could you really not imagine another realistic scenario? Oh I dunno, maybe he sold it months ago or a year ago for therapy and is just now in a financial situation to be able to get another console.

1

u/Achaern Oct 22 '21

Your scenario is what seems to be the Ockham's razor outcome, sure. I am capable of being boring if I wanted to be, but it's way more fun to offer fantasy as fun.

2

u/chikkinnveggeeze Oct 22 '21

I guess I read your comment in a condescending manner and that's my fault. People seem to often throw out the ideal scenario that subsequently makes them sound smarter than the OP they are responding to. Good on you for not being like that.

1

u/Achaern Oct 22 '21

That's quite fair! I find it's easy to read condescension into what I write, and you're not out of place to take note. In this case, my attempt was purely humour, but it's so subjective it's easy to read it as snark, or rude.

1

u/Prestigious-Oven3465 Oct 21 '21

Man. This makes me so happy. So glad you could make a hard decision to better your mental health ❤️. You inspire me to follow suit.

-1

u/TiffyBears Oct 21 '21

I’m hoping that the title means “I sold my ps4 2+ years ago to be able to afford therapy, but now that I am better, I can finally go back to something I enjoy and rewarded myself with a ps5” because, if that isn’t the case and you sold it, therapy, and got a ps5 I’d say you make poor financial decisions. If “therapy” is a ps5, and you sold your ps4 to be able to afford it, id actually also be half and half. Like, maybe focus on saving your money if you can’t afford a console, but on the other hand, I know when I was younger I was extremely depressed and gaming got me out of that. My anger issues might’ve gotten worse, but hey, I was less depressed.

Regardless, congrats, and I hope you get the most use out of it. I’m excited for horizon zero dawn: forbidden west, anything you’re excited for?

u/LincloGames Oct 21 '21

u/PlayPl123 Oct 21 '21

the worst thing about ps5 is that they say 8k gaming but only hardware that does 8k is rtx 3090 i think

1

u/Xenoxia Oct 21 '21

To be fair, even with a 3090, I doubt youd be 8k gaming, not on high settings or with any RTX stuff on anyway, lol.

1

u/PlayPl123 Oct 22 '21

on all high with dlss no rtx in more lightweight games i think. but it isnt atleast marketing slogan like in ps5. i know that rtx 3090 isnt allmighty gpu that can run anything. but there is one thing named 4 way sli if you vombine 4 3090s then it will run anything

I would love a PS5 but I don’t have that kind of money to be able to afford one even used. I’m still stuck with my PS3 & PS4. Hope you are able to get what was stolen out of it. Especially for the price of one of those, definitely need to get back what was stolen out of it.

after that I started to see things and hear names.

it's really a long story.
