And no Ethernet.
I guess it will make a difference during networks transfers?

Also this case is so much better, especially where you can fit the charging brick and it seems to be same thickness as the original case.

so the 512gb version jumped a whole 12 seconds in the UK lol

while the same 512gb version jumped 2 days in the EU

does anyone truly believe this has still been a successful launch ?

why is there so much disparity between different markets but still we get silence from Valve on why this is happening

Yeah and guess how many seconds away i was on thursday before the drop....

12 seconds...

... and i didn't get my email haha :cry:

I am officially zero seconds away - bring on monday.

I'm holding out no hope in getting this in this year, I think I ordered the 512 at around 7pm on launch day
do you mean 7pm on the 16th july or 25th feb when it was launched ?

if its the 25th feb then you may just sneak in later this year but i wouldn't count on it

I ordered mine on the 17th of July last year, can’t remember the time, a day later then above. I got the same availability: Q3 (July-September) 2022. 256gb model though.

Got my 256gb a few days ago, surprised how many games run at 60fps on this.
Older/non demanding games like resident evil 4, devil may cry hd collection or metal gear rising only use about 10w for 60fps so 5-6 hours battery on these type of older games.
Currently replaying assassin's creed 3 high settings solid 60fps.

Sounds good!

I think that era of games suits it well and will be what I play on mine too I think

I think UK simply has fewer orders so if they can meet their q2, q3 deadline at this rate then they'll be prioritizing other areas. Like EU which is where most of the order were I guess.

I had my 512 for a month now, love the thing. Been replaying GTA 5 as never fully completed and having a lot of fun. It's such a "no commitment" device.. pick up, play for 30-45, put down, come back when ever for another 30-45. I know it's first world problems but going to the pc, logging in, launching the game etc is just effort and I end up not playing as much. If ever.
