Yeah I noticed Vodafone are doing PS5 plans. I don't know if I want 2 consoles on plans but it's probably the easier way to get one right now.

Voda requires you to have 2 services with them already that need to be eligible

Oh OK, so I won't bother. I'm alright with waiting for a while anyway.

Looks like the XSX will take longer to be shipped out than I thought. It might be a few weeks.

Game & Watch Super Mario Bros.

I wasn't going to get one, but I'm still pissed about the NES Classic scalpers so I bought one for Christmas. Target had 10-20 sitting around. :dontknow" I checked again and they're still in stock, too.

I preordered one from EB Games because of the fact they were already selling out when announced. I still haven't received mine yet. It shipped on Thursday and so far has made it from Queensland to New South Whales. Knowing Australia Post, it will probably go to Victoria on the way to me here in South Australia. For context, here's what we're talking. I've had stuff arrive from other countries quicker than this!

Australia Post are doing weird things. I ordered 2 lots of cards from a store in Melbourne last week. One lot, which I ordered a day after the other lot, took 2 days to get here. The other lot has gone for a trip to Queensland.

A few months back I heard it was because the other facilities could cope better, hence why I had a package leave Melbourne to Sydney, then back to Adelaide. My package saw more of the country than I have in the last 10 years :olol:

It's good to hear that we aren't the only ones with mail problems :olol: The latest episode had a package coming from L.A. over ground, so I watched it bounce right down the interstate highways towards me. I went to sleep after I saw my precious package was in North Platte, NE, but by the time I woke up, UPS or USPS had completely circumvented me :olol:

Difference is we don't have a president actively trying to destroy our mail service, it does just fine doing that to itself :olol:

In Trump's defense, USPS has had its fair share of issues before he threw his tantrum :olol: Hopefully Biden will help straighten things out, because I don't want rural areas left to the wrath of UPS/FedEx and their budget whims.
