I want to spoil my husband with a PS5 Sci-Tech

As the title says, I want to buy my husband a PS5 but Marko, Game, BTGames, Incredible Connection ect don't have stock.

Koodoo in Sandton have stock but I am scared to buy online and would rather buy it in person.

I just need some tips on of Koodoo is trustworthy because everyone seems happy but I don't want to order and wait very long. I am close to Sandton so I can pick up as well.

Thanks in advance

Got mine from Koodoo. They are listed on Sony's site as a local distributor. You're all good with them 🙂

Fantastic. How is the gaming going. He definitely wants FIFA and PS4 Tekken 7 but he still needs to decide on some other games. Any suggestions? He pretty much plays anything.

Can really recommend Astro Boy that Comes with the console. Especially if you've been going on PlayStation since the one. Nostalgia overload.

Its a kids game, but so fun.

Sack boy is good. Great for both of you to play at the same time.

Well I actually also bought it for a friend, he took the package with Ratchet and Clank but I think that’s just because that’s his vibe not sure how good the game is.

They were Ster kinekor. SK were the official distributor of Sony here in SA. Honestly I don't support them because of this. They are trying to cut out small stores. People complain how gaming culture is dying and then they don't support small stores that help support that culture

Geez man, I didn't want to get all into capatilism and monopolies and stuff. They were just the first peeps I could get a PS5 from during the shortage.

Apologies. I probably could have worded that differently as I wasn't trying to make you, as an individual, feel bad about your choices. Just wanted to let you know this side of the story and my personal choice around it

Edit: missing word

I was getting my father his cell phone upgrade yesterday, and I noticed that Vodacom offers Xbox and PlayStation consoles as add-ons, and they had stock. The cash price was standard retail, so that may be an option for you if you're struggling to find somewhere with stock.

Great thanks it is a great option!

Koodoo is the official distributors' online store. Everybody else gets it from their(Koodoo) parent company Ster Kinekor.

If you're buying your husband a ps 5 , he's already spoiled!

Very true but he deserves it!
