    So in hindsight the people that did cancel their Phoenix tech orders were pretty smart?

    Nope because few people if any got refunds. So in hindsight the people that didn't order from them were pretty smart.

    I believe there was like a month between the international and local release. I also believe there was the rare HDMI port bug where if you were one of the lucky 1% you wouldn't get video signal from your PS4 all due to an error at foxcon.

    At the time everything seemed to be on track, but now looking back at it, it was a gamble with Phoenix Tech

    But now it's a choice for those who want to buy from them. I will be immigrating in the next month and will get my PS5 overseas. I didn't even know that Phoenix Tech was back in business. Last I checked, their site was shut down. As said, I was lucky and did get good service from them.

    Remember people on SA Gamer if you cancel your orders, not very smart...
    You bet! We can even give you a Kiss from a rose.

    So basically they started out legit but then somewhere along the line someone took a run with the money.
    They'll be no running this time, I assure you. We would never prey on people's impatience.

    The customer is always right...a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush...no man is an island.

    I'm in personal contact with Shuhei Yoshida who's given me pricing for the PS5.

    There are three models to choose from:

    Standard Edition - 1TB SSD, Blu Ray Player, Dualshock 5 and FF7 remake of the remake (PS5 version) - R8 000

    Pro Edition: 2TB SSD, Blu Ray Player, Dualshock 5 and Resistance: Rise of Man - R10 000

    Super-over-clock-edition: 3TB SDD, Blu Ray Player, Dualshock 5, (also comes with a fan to aim at the console to cool it down due to higher temps = higher performance) and Half Life 3 - R12 000

    Order now to avoid disappointment. Order 2 or more to definitely avoid disappointment.

    Expect delivery sometime between February 2020 to December 2020.

    If you have any queries please contact me via Skype where I will be a nameless question mark.

    @JoE is vouching for me.
    I thought you were joking about making this 😂
    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    He must think we’re running a fly by night operation here. It’s legit @ElectroMoe... Order now to avoid disappointment. I’ll even put the special seal on your unit
