I set my alarm to wake me up an hour before it went on sale, and had my details already on clipboard. Was ready to snipe on minute one, and went from super sad to nervous to happy.

I managed to secure one by using the Bank Transfer option Shadow, however it says theres still some in stock. if the problem is fixed should I go ahead and try the credit card method again and if it works you could cancel the bank transfer order?

I dont mind, which ever works for you.

EDIT: nevermind I think it has gone out of stock. I will just continue with the bank transfer order and send the money that way.
I can change it so you can pay using a card instead. Just email me and let me know to go ahead with that :)

I do feel for people whom have busy schedules and will get home to log onto their emails to see the "in stock" email and find it's already out of stock. That's what happened to me last time, good thing I was at home today. Oh, hello again Shadow, nice to see you! I do hope that cable I sent you quite some ago has proved useful for your debugging :)
Hello again! Hope all has been well :)
Yes, the cable is extremely useful and I use it a lot for debugging :dance

Well that sucked :/ The remaining 30 or so can't be bought now. Probably should limit to 1 per customer in the future.

Gutted again, as I thought this time there would be plenty to fulfill the demand at least, yet got left to the curb again. I don't know why you guys don't mass produce, as the supplies won't dry out. What pisses me off the most, is the fucking scalpers (one guy claiming he bagged 3 and then brags about selling them each on Ebay for $650) :evil:

I'm more angry about that since I only want one for myself and not for financial gain.

Are there going to be more stock and not a 3-4 month wait again?

Thanks

We will be mass producing next year. I'm getting the plastic shell injection moulded, as well as the parallel ports. I've got the design almost finished in Solidworks, but I've just got to do a flow simulation to make sure the injection moulding system will 'flow' the ABS plastic correctly.

As for the scalpers, simply do not buy from them. Ever. Report the link on eBay if possible too. We will have more stock in about 3 months time, but by then, the mass production would be starting, so you'll have a much greater chance of getting one :)

PSIO will always be in production. Do not worry about not having a chance to grab one because everyone will. That's my guarantee ;)

I managed to get one - the site was really slow during the process due to the customers hammering it
can't wait to receive mine :)

What exactly would we flag the listing for? While I don't agree with what those sellers are doing, it's not clear to me how exactly they're violating eBay's terms of service.

eBay doesn't allow it: http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/encouraging.html
"Certain modchips, game enhancers, boot discs or video game converters".

Whilst PSIO is a development tool, try explaining that to PayPal and eBay ;)

Hey shadow, I sent you a PM/email about this, if you could change it so that I could pay with a credit card it'd be great! :) If it can't be changed though thats OK, I can still do the bank transfer. thank you :mrgreen:

Glad to hear about mass production. I missed my opportunity to get one, and there goes another quarter of a year. Oh, well - optimistic for next time. :)

I manged to snag two. I'm not planning on scalping, a friend of mine was at work and asked me to get it for him.


Are there future plans to use an external USB drive or something? If you are in the states, how long will it take to arrive?

He is in Australia, expect atleast a few months which has been the average.

Give the Terms and Conditions a read. It usually takes up to 3 months since they are manually assembled from scratch. That will be changing next year because of the mass production changes to the assembly process :)
