Game price – FSC Clan Wed, 15 Sep 2021 00:07:36 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Game price – FSC Clan 32 32 PS5 restock update: PlayStation Direct will have more consoles today Tue, 14 Sep 2021 14:32:00 +0000

It’s a big day for PS5 restocking. In addition to the GameStop PS5 bundle earlier today, PlayStation Direct will restock the PS5 today at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET) for selected users who have received an email invitation. If you haven’t received an invitation, don’t worry – a public queue usually opens at 2 p.m. PT (5 p.m. ET), So you’ll want to keep an eye out for that and be ready on the PlayStation Direct PS5 roster this afternoon.

This restocking is all the more timely as the last PS5 game, Death loop, launched today. It’s yet another great addition to the PS5’s game library.

Want to get your hands on a PS5? We have tracked all places selling both the standard edition and digital edition of the PS5 for months, helping thousands of people grab the console when it appears. If you’re struggling to find one on your own, this article provides some helpful tips for checking out and knowing when the next PS5 bundle will be available for purchase.

Why is the PS5 so hard to find?

There are three big reasons why you still struggle to get a PS5. The first is the most obvious: the system is really popular. Sony claims the PS5 is its best-selling console and has already sold 10 million units since its launch.

The second reason is the current shortage of chips that affects most of the world’s electronic devices. Sony said it got enough chips to meet its goal of 14.8 million consoles for the year.

As for the last reason, it is about bots. Resellers use software to buy large numbers of PS5s at a time, leaving only a few for humans. Retailers have added various robot protections when restocking the PS5, but these restrictions only hamper resellers.

Where has the PS5 been available recently?

Inventory refreshes have been slim in the field this month, although they have accelerated this week. Here’s a look at the recent history of restocking the PS5:

How do I get a PS5 on PlayStation Direct?

The store with the most frequent PS5 restocking is Sony’s official store, PlayStation Direct. Drops typically take place at 2 p.m. PT (5 p.m. ET) in the middle of the week (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday). What Sony has done recently is give out a lucky few email invitations for exclusive store access, which typically starts at 12:00 p.m. PT (3:00 p.m. ET).

To get one of these special invitations, you don’t just need luck, you also need a PSN account. You can sign up on the PSN website and it’s free. When registering, be sure to accept marketing emails from Sony. From there, it’s about being patient and having a bit of luck on your side. It appears that priority access emails are sent randomly, but you will need to participate in one of the queues on PlayStation Direct to be considered.

PlayStation Direct PS5 restocking works a little differently from other retailers. At the start time, there is a home page with a countdown timer showing when the queue will start. You can stay on this page and when the time is up the website will start putting people in line to buy a PS5. The page will update and say how long you’ll have to wait, but that’s not a guarantee. To increase your chances, once you’re in a queue, share the link with your other devices like your phone. Make sure that each device uses a different IP address (for example, having your phone on its mobile plan while your computer is using home Wi-Fi). This may improve your odds, as your other device may be placed in a different row that is moving at a faster rate. Even if you don’t get a PS5, as mentioned earlier, you can still get a pass to buy one on the next tour.

What are some helpful tips for finding a PS5?

Big retailers like Walmart, GameStop, Amazon, Target, and Best Buy typically don’t give much notice before a restock. Sometimes they will have a restock in the morning, other times in the afternoon and in some cases even in the middle of the night. Here are some tips to help you get the better of the competition.

First tip: don’t wait to see an alert for a PS5 inventory drop. Check out the links at major retailers for stock updates daily or even multiple times a day. (We’ve lined them up below.) If you’re having some PS5 availability, go for as many browsers and devices as possible. On a desktop computer, for example, open the retailer page in Chrome, Firefox, and Edge. Then do the same on your phone and tablet. The more devices and browsers, the better. It’s like with lottery tickets: the more you have, the better your chances of winning.

Second tip: Create accounts at the various retailers and make sure you’re already signed in if you’re going to try and get a PS5. Make sure all of your shipping, billing, and payment information is up to date on any device you can buy on, whether it’s laptop, desktop or a phone. This makes verification much faster which is crucial as retailer sites get bogged down quickly causing people to lose their chance to get a PS5.

Third tip: keep reading this article and follow CNET and Oscar González on Twitter for updates.

How do I preview a PS5 replenishment?

It has already been explained that one of the best ways to ensure that a console is ready to buy immediately is to make sure that you have created an account and are logged in, but there is another way to skip the line a bit. While most retailers really want you to show up when something is marked in stock, the prolonged difficulty in obtaining a PS5 has encouraged GameStop to offer early access to sales for its paid members.

If you want to increase your chances of getting a PS5 from GameStop, all you need to do is sign up for the PowerUp Rewards Pro program. This is a subscription program that GameStop has had for years, and it uses this program to offer discounts and promo codes as well as a subscription to Game Informer magazine.

This program costs $ 20 a year, and if GameStop keeps its promise, people who are a part of this program will be able to get a PS5 before it’s available to everyone on the website.

Where can I buy a PS5 if I’m willing to pay extra?

If you’re starting to crack up and are considering buying a PS5 right now (and we know that with the number of big PS5 games on the verge of dropping over the next few months, the pressure is on) you can do it, but at the cost of a lot of markup on sites like eBay or StockX. On eBay, for example, we’ve seen PS5 units priced over $ 1,000, although prices have slowly come down to around $ 700.

Where to buy a PlayStation 5

See the step-by-step instructions above for more information on how to queue for PS5 availability on Sony’s PlayStation Direct.

Best Buy is offering the PS5 with Blu-ray for $ 500 as well as the digital edition for $ 400 (which you can find by clicking the button below). The retailer also offers a host of accessories on its PS5 landing page.

You can check the inventory of the $ 400 digital edition at Walmart by clicking the button below, or you can try grabbing the more expensive PS5 with Blu-ray for $ 500.

Target is offering the PS5 with Blu-ray for $ 500 in addition to the PS5 Digital Edition, which you can find by clicking the button below.

You can check out Amazon’s page for the digital edition at $ 400 via the button below or, if you prefer, line up for the PS5 with Blu-ray for $ 500.

Newegg’s PS5 page offers several packs that include additional controllers and games with the console. You can see the different options by clicking on the button below.

If you’ve decided that you just can’t wait another moment for Sony to pull itself together and flood the inventory market, eBay is a shortcut to getting your own PS5 right now. That said, let me reiterate our advice: no PS5 is worth spending hundreds of dollars off the list price, and that’s exactly what you’ll need to do if you’re buying from an eBay reseller. The average price of the PS5 on eBay is around $ 850.

OK, you’ve exhausted all online and physical retailers, and you’ve decided you’re willing to pay over $ 300 to get this puppy soon. As friends, we have to tell you: Do not do it. But if you don’t want to listen to us, you might want to check out StockX, an eBay alternative that’s made a name for itself in the aftermarket for branded sneakers and clothing. The last time we checked, the prices of the PS5 were hovering around $ 700.

Can anyone in the NFC stop Tom Brady and the Bucs from rehearsing? Fri, 10 Sep 2021 22:03:28 +0000

Entering quarterback Kirk Cousins’ fourth season in Minnesota, the Vikings have yet to win NFC North. Unless the Packers team buses make a detour through Idaho each game day, this streak is not likely to end. Still, the Vikings have a bunch of elite players – running back Dalvin Cook, wide receiver Justin Jefferson and defensive end Danielle Hunter – and their off-season additions have improved a defense that coach Mike Zimmer called the last season of ‘worst I have ever had. . “

At least Minnesota’s numbers are average. At best, he could win double-digit matches, good enough to land a wildcard spot.

– Ben Shpigel

Key additions: WR Cordarrelle Patterson, TE Kyle Pitts, RB Mike Davis, S Duron Harmon

Main departures: C Alex Mack, WR Julio Jones, S Ricardo Allen, S Keanu Neal, DE Charles Harris, CB Darqueze Dennard.

No team has imploded as spectacularly – or as often – as the Falcons, who lost nine (!) Games they led last season. In theory, this will not happen again. Expectations beyond that? _ (ツ) _ / ¯

The Falcons, under new management as coach (Arthur Smith) and general manager (Terry Fontenot), are in transition. After trading Jones and bypassing a potential Matt Ryan successor to draft Pitts to No.4 overall, Atlanta appears to be climbing a downward escalator. It will be up to defensive coordinator Dean Pees, who has been drawn out of retirement, to generate a lot of pressure – and Ryan to generate a lot of points. With Ryan working in a game-heavy offense that resembles that of his 2016 MVP season, that might be possible. In theory.

Key additions: QB Sam Darnold, LB Haason Reddick, OT Cameron Erving, CB Jaycee Horn

Main departures: WR Curtis Samuel, RB Mike Davis, QB Teddy Bridgewater, LG Chris Reed

The Panthers acquired Darnold from the Jets this spring in the hopes that pulling him out of the Jets’ juju – and surrounding him with, you know, better players – might unlock his promise. Bold strategy. In Season 2 under coach Matt Rhule, Carolina’s prospect of competing is rooted in too many assumptions (whether Darnold can bounce back, whether running back Christian McCaffrey can stay healthy, whether his youngster defense can merge) to be taken seriously.

Bobby Lackey (1937-2021) – The essence of pride, the eternal spirit of the soul Tue, 07 Sep 2021 21:01:06 +0000

A memorial service for Bobby Lackey will be held Thursday, September 16 at 7 p.m. at Bobby Lackey Stadium in Weslaco.

Bobby Lackey (1937-2021) – The essence of pride, the eternal spirit of the soul

By Bill Little contributor

The old song says: “The class of 57 had their dreams …”

If you were an adult child in the small town of Winters, Texas, these dreams included dashing football stars who were capable of miraculous feats and performed almost unbeatable deeds. The point was, we needed heroes.

And Bobby Lackey was my hero.

The point is, Lackey’s story would have made a perfect Hallmark movie.

The odyssey begins in the Rio Grande Valley, near the town of Weslaco. When Lackey passed away last Thursday at the age of 83, people there still called him “the valley’s greatest athlete in the last 100 years.”

He was a star of three sports, excelling in soccer, basketball and baseball. He was 6ft 3in tall and packed his overalls even in high school, and when it came time to go to college he chose Texas. He was recruited by many schools. But, a visit to the historic Gregory Gym for the UIL State Boys basketball tournament and the events that followed a few weeks later at Texas Relays and other campus activities sold him out in Austin.

“I loved these things so much,” he said in the book, “What it means to be a Longhorn.” “I said ‘Hey, if they want me, I’m coming.'”

And that was the start of a great relationship.

Bobby Lackey had grown up in poverty. He lived with his parents and siblings in a “farm labor camp,” then moved from rental home to rental home. He was the only one in his family to go to university. After incredible success as a high school athlete, his ticket out of the valley would be that football scholarship that awaited him in Austin.

Lackey came to Texas in 1956 as part of head coach Ed Price’s last promotion. A year later, that would all change for the Longhorns when Price stepped down and sports director DX Bible hired a 32-year-old Oklahoman named Darrell Royal as his football head coach. Even before he met Lackey, Royal knew him. In many ways he had come for miles on the same path.

What Royal knew, and the world would soon find out, is that a person’s worth is not in what they have, but rather in who they are. Locals, like the days of Darrell’s Dust Bowl in southwest Oklahoma and Bobby’s time as a child in labor camps, claim their dignity with their pride and soul. And these things, no one can ever take them away from you.

But before he even left Weslaco, Bobby’s heart would become a huge difference maker.

And that’s where all of us Hallmark movie fans take over. Bobby had noticed (like everyone at Weslaco) that the prettiest girl in school was a cheerleader named Judy McManus. He would notice as she drove by in a nice car and waved to him as he drove to school. The two eventually became friends and even dated, as their son remembers. Then almost tragedy struck. Judy’s younger brother fell from a tree, suffering fatal injuries and was hospitalized.

And it is there, my friends, that we call the heroes.

People say the young boy rallied when the city’s star quarterback walked into his room to cheer him up, and just like in the movies, the pretty girl and quarterback fell in love.

Judy McManus, whose father had an extremely successful production operation in the Rio Grande Valley, came to Texas, as did Bobby Lackey. The two tied the knot after Bobby’s first year at UT.

Royal arrived in December 1956 and in 1957 he split his quarterback duties between Lackey and veteran Walter Fondren. But Lackey was going to find a way to get onto the pitch. At the end of the regular season, Lackey and Fondren teamed up to lead Texas to a stunning 9-7 victory over Texas A&M. Lackey’s 38-yard field goal late in the third quarter ended up providing the deciding points.

A year later, Lackey would be in the spotlight again, this time in the most important game of the time. Oklahoma had beaten Texas six in a row and won nine of the last 10. The 57-team actually challenged the Sooners before losing in a fierce 21-7 game.

Prior to the 1958 game, Royal told a rally of supporters: “I think we can win. I’m not saying we will win, however. I think our players think they can.” And then he added, “Texas need to develop a footballing tradition. They had it once but lost it. When we have one, maybe we can stop that bleeding in Dallas and make it a good one. spectacle.”

Texas had climbed to 16th place nationally (after going unranked for two and a half years in a row just a season ago) and OU came in second.

The Football Rules Committee, despite Royal’s disapproval, had made a major change in the game. That year, teams could choose to aim for two points, rather than the usual single point for a kick, after a. score. So when Texas scored first, Royal shocked the crowded stadium and a nationwide TV audience by getting two points – and scoring. The Longhorns led 8-0.

Oklahoma, however, would not be disheartened. The Sooners came back and took a 14-8 lead early in the fourth quarter. Vince Matthews, who was a passing quarterback, had shared duties with Lackey and took the ‘Horns to the 5-yard line earlier with less than five minutes to go. Texas recovered their practice when they recovered from a fumble on the 7, but when Matthews pitched incomplete, Lackey entered the game.

The play would become known as “The Shot That Sank The Sooners”. Lackey took the snap, jumped into the air and fired a hands-on clap waiting for tight end Bobby Bryant. And then he scored the extra point for a 15-14 lead. After the game, Lackey and Royal were quick to give credit to Matthews, who opened the game with his first competition of the year combined with Lackey and half-back Rene Ramirez for 12 of 17 passes for 153 yards. and two touchdowns.

It could have ended like a Hallmark movie, as after the game Bobby and Judy Lackey were pictured walking together through the famous Cotton Bowl tunnel. When the Longhorns defeated OU a year later, this photo appeared on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine – the first SI cover ever made for Texas Longhorns football.

Lackey’s last chapter with Texas came in the 1959 season, when he and his teammates had Royal on the cup lip of an undefeated regular season before an upset on a frigid day in late November in Austin gave to TCU a superb 14-9 victory over UTAH.

This set the stage for another Lackey miracle, this time during the annual grudge match with Texas A&M at College Station. Despite the loss to TCU, Texas were still ranked No.4 nationally and a big favorite against the Aggies. A win would send UT to the Cotton Bowl for the first time since 1952 and give the Longhorns a share of the SWC Championship.

But at halftime, Texas looked on the wrong side with a 10-0 scoreline, and members of the Aggie Corps of Cadets mockingly threw cotton balls at the Longhorns.

In the dressing room, Royal called Lackey to the side just before the team left for the second half.

“That half is yours,” he said. “Go ahead and take it in your own hands and see if we can score some points.”

Lackey led Texas to a 14-10 lead, but with just 7:55 to go, the Aggies got it back at 17-14. Texas had the ball at 25.
Children, like I said at the beginning, dream. The heroes play. I remember the cold, almost hazy air sitting on those wooden stands on the east side of Kyle Field. I remember Texas driving north, their uniforms a weird mix of mud and grass on what had started the day as pristine white. Lackey would end it, with a 15-yard bootleg pass to Larry Cooper and a final statement on a short quarterback to win 20-17.

“This kid was great,” Royal said after the game. “He was great before, but he was at his best today.”

Texas closed the season with a 23-14 loss in a hotly contested game with No.1 Syracuse in the Cotton Bowl Classic. While in Texas, Bobby Lackey had guided Texas to Darrell Royal’s inaugural Southwestern Conference Championship and started the incredible wave of success that would continue for the next decade. He led the team in passes, punters and twice in scoring. But his contributions to this program, or the lives it touched, cannot be measured in statistics.

When the Mack Brown Longhorns won the national championship after the 2005 season, he told the team to “don’t let this day be the happiest day of your life.” He told them to take what they had learned and apply it to become better fathers, husbands, friends, and people.

In a very special way, he had written the epitaph for Bobby Lackey.

After graduating from Texas, Bobby leaned into professional football and decided it wouldn’t work for him. He returned to Texas, where Judy was expecting their first child. He returned to the Valley and joined Judy’s father, John McManus, with the development of one of the largest production companies in America.

Living in Weslaco, and later in the Houston area, Bobby and Judy remained active in civic and philanthropic efforts and, as one would expect, in their support of the University of Texas and the Longhorns. He was inducted into the Texas Athletics Hall of Honor in 1977. The high school football stadium and one of two school gymnasiums in Weslaco are named after him.

For over 63 years, they were the children who fell in love in the Rio Grande Valley, nurtured that love in college as sweethearts, and then saw the sunset together for the last time when Judy passed away last summer.

When Bobby’s memory started to fade with age, it was Judy who had been there for him. On Thursday, time passed for the quarterback.

But those who knew them swear they’re together, walking up this tunnel, side by side.

Oh, yeah… and like a hat to the Hallmark movies… they kiss at the end.

CRF football dominated LIU in the season opener. Discover the highlights of the game | News from the FIU Fri, 03 Sep 2021 21:55:19 +0000

Fans arrived ready to cheer and CRF football delivered, delivering an emphatic 48-10 victory over the Long Island University Sharks at the CRF Stadium on Thursday night to begin their 2021 campaign.

Kick-off was delayed by around an hour due to lightning in the area, and pre-match tailgating was halted due to bad weather, but fans didn’t seem to mind.

Arnaldo Rodriguez ’05 came from North Carolina for the season opener and wasn’t going to let a little rain dampen his mood.

“I was in the first game we played and had a season ticket for many years before I moved. I always try to get to a few games each season, ”said Rodriguez, who was following with friends in tents and caught the pouring rain in the wake. “It’s always a good time. He predicted a CRF victory by a score of 35-13.

The students walked around Parkview, just happy to be together again to cheer on their team.

“I don’t understand football,” said first-year biology student Valeria Alburquerque, “but I love the excitement, coming to the game, seeing everyone come together.” Alburquerque boldly predicted a Panthers victory by a score of 4-2. She was there with fellow freshman Victoria Apparicio, a business major who understands the game better but admitted she was there for the camaraderie as well.

Lack? Check out the highlights of the game and the festivities in the video and slideshow below.

The team returns to action on September 11 against Texas State.

This video game that was denied on Pawn Stars sold for $ 2 million Fri, 03 Sep 2021 02:00:00 +0000

After considerable time spent admiring the quality of “Super Mario Bros.” sealed. video game, Rick Harrison gets right to the point and asks the salesperson how much he wants for it. The salesman responds coldly, “It’s a piece of history, it’s something I find it hard to part with. But I would sell it for a million dollars.” Rick repeats the number to the salesperson just to make sure he heard it right, and there’s no doubt he’s serious. A long silence follows this absolute blockbuster of a prize – that is, until Chum breaks it by calling everyone in mind, “That’s a lot of money for a video game. “

Rather than throwing the seller away for wasting his time, Rick decides to call the Wata company, which assesses the quality of old video games, to see if they can get someone to come to the store to determine if the asking price by. the seller is suitably high or just plain greedy. Soon after, Wata founder and president Deniz Kahn walked through the store’s doors himself to offer his expertise. He immediately recognizes the game as “possibly the most important piece of video game history that our rating company has ever seen.”

The game is old and in great condition, and its rarity and value is extremely high as it comes from the test batch of around 10,000 games that Nintendo only produced from 1985 to 1986 when it first tried out. times to introduce its NES console in the United States. Marlet. This can be determined by the fact that the game is sealed with a sticker and not shrink wrap. Of these 10,000 or so games, only one – this one – remains sealed.
