Secured mine from Amazon within 20 seconds of them going live.
If mine doesn't arrive next Thursday I will be mighty disappointed.
Really hope that Best Buy in Canada has some back in stock tomorrow for launch day
Neweggs website says PS5 will be available 11/12/20 at 12:01 AM ET
Well got mine pre ordered. But did get an email from game earlier saying that ps5 will have ps5 in stock soon, so I'm guessing that is for the 19th. Man I wish it was the 19th already. Gutted I'm not in Canada or USA would be playing tomorrow 😭😭
Wait!.... Newegg are selling bundles for the same price as the console alone? 😞
@Truthhurts2 They actually don't have prices on their website, i'm sure these are just place holders
Cue the training montage of me getting ready to go beast mode on the F5 key.
Hopefully I can beat out the bots buying these up!
Wal Mart seems to be handling this a little bit better than Series X where there was only 1 time (noon) and that was it.
Next year, cheaper, safer and with many games on sale.
Edit: to be clear, that’s what i’m gonna do, not necessarily what i think everyone should.
You never know...
@Bliquid Cheaper i would not count on that so soon.
keep refreshing from 10pm is my advice and then if no luck check the opening times of your local Argos stores in the morning
@Thesnipergecko Mine took 21 seconds so if mine doesn't come day 1 I'll be hunting you down.....
Still waiting for Game to take my money. It was nearly a week ago they said they’d start taking payment in “two to three days”. Anyone had dispatch confirmation yet?
Thanks to Sony managing stock and marketing like a toddler, I'll be able to fully enjoy Age of Calamity on the 20th. And since I can't get a PS5 day one. I'll probably wait a year or so to find most launch games with a big discount. Your loss So-Sony
Yes, the money came off the card yesterday, and emailed to say will be dispatched from delivery company the day before release.
You should probably check those Newegg prices Stephen. They're all showing base console pricing, but include an extra DualSenses and some bundles include games.
Bugger. Ok, lol, I’ll take that as good news as I should be getting a similar email any second now...any second now...any second...now...
@lacerz I know, they're just placeholder. I'll update them tomorrow.
@Quintumply Gamestop's black Friday will have some instore on the 13th of this month.
Just got my copy of Demon's Souls in the mail today, ordered from Target, LOL - just need the system now... c'mon guys!
@StonyKL ha! My actually broke my F5 key I think. The RGB lighting on the key is dimmer than the rest now.
Also... Got texts and emails from Royal Mail, getting Spider Morales Man, demons souls and extra controller coming tomorrow between 8:11 and 12:11.
Will keep looking to order official charging dock, hopefully they come back into stock before 19th.
Sure, but I have hope 😩
@thefourfoldroot Glad it's happening, kinda. I'll be happier once my moneys taken tho. Checking my bank/email constantly the now
@Skywalker1080p did you check out as a guest like I did?
Have my email from Shopto confirming my order has been processed and is now ready for the courier to deliver on release day next week.
A guest yes, for the PS5 at least.
The other bits were a few days after, on the account.
@Skywalker1080p Cheers I'll just need to wait patiently till I get that email I guess. Just had email saying Valhalla from Currys will be delivered tomorrow. Cmon Game now I just need to know I'll have a machine to play it on
This is the toughest part of launch. We'll all have smooth sailing in the next few weeks.
Basic message. Snooze you lose.
Doesn't make Sony's preorder process right because it was shambolic. Still don't complain when you ain't making effort to get to local retails to get one
Loving my series x but more excited for my ps5 next week
Would be nice if Canadian retailers were shown as well ....
Stupid Uk release dates! I’ve got my controller, headset and media remote being delivered tomorrow but have to wait a week for the console. Who thought that was a good idea.
I’m sure Covid has had some effect on availability but I’m also sure that come Xmas time these machines will suddenly and miraculously become available again. Let’s be realistic.
@Mpquikster hopefully people in the US will give us a idea on the stock for people who didn't get a pre-order in like myself
Having just experienced the *****-show of PS5 ordering (round 2) in Australia... be prepared for disappointment and frustration. I think there may have been a dozen on sale (I'm exaggerating) for the whole continent. Needless to say.. that's why I'm spending my evening typing comments, rather than planning my unboxing experience.
@Arnna nice dream... but the new orders in Australia at least are mostly coming with a Dec 16-17 time frame... yes, it's possible they will have a 3rd wave - however, at least some of the retailers here are now saying March-April before the next shipment. Which is absolutely crazy (and I hope they're mad).
@Oz_Momotaro I’m also in Australia - I’m not getting my hopes up lol
Just as an addendum, just been sent 2 psn codes from GAME for miles-man and demons add ons.
Wasn't aware that there were pre order bonuses, probably just a couple of outfits.
Received the games, and second controller 👍
GAME saving the environment by packing 3 things separately.🙄
@1_W1NG3D_4NG3L haha gutted m8, I bet you were dancing around with joy for a bit. Only a week to go, I had same thing last week thought that Amazon had changed the date to today, but it was the pulse headset lol just quickly saw ps5 and got my hopes up but quickly realised my mistake think it was more hopefull thinking.
@1_W1NG3D_4NG3L I bet m8. Well I just got my pulse headset delivered. It says it is compatible with ps4 so might give them a go later to see how comfy they are and pretend I'm playing ps5 lol. Yea going to be a long week.
What a ***** show. Ebgames site just died, so did the source. Bestbuy had a 30 minute queue to say it was sold out, walmart didn’t even show stock..... sigh.
@God_of_Nowt im still trying pal
Woooo, just managed to secure one from walmart.
You need to update this guys. GAME have not had any stock to pre-order since Weds........
This needs an update, none available at game or anywhere in the UK at the moment. Some shops like smyths are saying December they expect to have more
Extremely blessed I was able to get mine from Sony via Playstation Direct. Otherwise, I probably would not have been able to find or get one
I got mines from BB but had to wait 2 days after launch cause BB didnt ship it til last minute.
I feel relieved cause some people still cant get one cause the scalpers keep sniping them from stock whenever its available. Wonder who keeps buying em for $2000 on ebay. Stop supporting the scalpers!!!
I already reserved mine for January 2021 in Europe so I'm good to go! I am going to get my first generation PS5.
I was able to get mine disc version through PlayStation direct on Friday evening. Had to do some browser and HTML hackery on the website to get around the queue redirect and the out-of-stock popup while going through the add-to-cart and checkout processes.
what a fiasco my mind is spinning.
Why did they not make it easy for loyal playstation gamers on the playstation store to get a look in.
Instead there is a mad scrabble to get hold of ps5's it's a mess.
Or people using bots to snap them up... Then re sell them for double the price.
No snoozing there, just pond life cheating and ripping off gamers who really do want them.
Loads on ebay.. 😒
A least there will be more stock before and after Xmas, apparently Microsoft is out of stock until April 2021.
@Steve30000 I don't use eBay. too many scalpers
They'll be on ebay for 2 grand, seconds after they go on sale. Can't win with these ebay wannabe del boys
Only time I was willing/able to get one at launch and came up short with every preorder chance. Not a great week.
Going to try to get one ordered on Thursday. Fingers crossed.
@thefourfoldroot did you ever get an email or payment taken from Game? They've not taken mine yet and now I realise my Thursday will be spent trying to get a ps5 rather than playing one.
Yes, they took the money out. They didn’t specifically send me an email saying so, but sent me one saying: “Good news! We just wanted to let you know we are now starting to process your ore order and it will be dispatched the day before release by the delivery method below”.
@thefourfoldroot that's good to hear. I'm still waiting 😭
Best of luck. I’m sure they would have let you and others know if there was an issue. It’s perhaps just an automated message for when it’s processed with the courier or they get around to taking your money.
Wal Mart is also doing online orders on Nov 25th at 7PM EST for Black Friday
welp I'm in a digital queue in curry's right now with over 100,000 people in it. Safe to say I won't be getting a console...lol
US should be counting their blessings, even if the consoles were not enough on the 12th, they at least got a chance to buy one, and more are on the way it seems.
The situation can actually be worse.
In Europe, in my country, on the 2 biggest stores websites (that also had a few consoles in September for Preorders) : one passed both PS5 consoles on their respective Playstation 5 web page, from Unavailable, that was up until the 18th, straight to Out of stock, a few hours before midnight 19 Nov.
And the other removed the console's page altogether, although it was there up until the 18th, with the stock situation as Unavailable.
And on multiple smaller store's sites the console is Out of stock.
So we weren't even given the chance to catch one, it was out of stock everywhere before 19th even began, and after.
The consoles they received went straight to fulfilling the preorders, and what was left was not put for sale, instead was reserved for the store's employees and whoever they knew and wanted to buy a PS5 (yeah, that's actually a thing, confirmed by many).
So there you go... for some it's the most f..ked up launch in PS history.
Btw, found 1 PS5 Digital ED on Amazon UK that sells for £999.00
Even the scalpers sell them cheaper on Ebay, so thanks, but no thanks.
Nothing on amazon or very in the uk
@Nexozi i took a print screen, but can't post it. Anyway, it went to "Currently unavailable" a few minutes after i saw it. And at that price, good riddance.
@Shinnok789 Yep, not paying the crazy money some people are looking. Can hold off for a few months. Apparently amazon and very were meant to have more stock today.
@BalsBigBrother still says in stock when I looked 1 min ago, not anymore though sry
I kept refreshing amazon uk at midnight and only 3rd party scalpers had them for sale at £1000+ and games site froze.
I was hot on it at might night launch and had no chance i am in a cue now at game and it's massive so might have to give up as it looks like over an hour wait.
I just don't understand how people are able to get a console. The site (Walmart) breaks for the 10 minutes when the console becomes available, and by the time it stops breaking, the item is out of stock.
Walmart was out of stock in 11 minutes. I had it in my cart and it kept erroring out at checkout
Almost feel bad sat here with my series x and ps5
I was on the Wal-Mart website earlier and because of the high demand it will be available online November 25th at 9pmET.
Just wait guys nothing wrong with the PS4 , don't buy off scalpers receipt is not in your name , you won't be able to get it fixed under warranty.
On Top Pro Tech some ps5 left in stock, for delivery on December 15. https://bit.ly/2KmuKvT
Got the ps5 but trying to get the headset which seems like it will be out of stock for awhile.
It's time to stop with online-only purchase of these consoles.
I mean, retailers are already doing Black Friday and taking COVID precautions. So, why should things be any different for in-store stock of PS5 and Xbox Series consoles?!
Scalpers will continue to be the primary source of these consoles until retailers stop making the internet the only way to get them.
The only positive thing out of this heart breaking launch is it gives me time to sort my s*** out ie.. upgrade the telle and a better stand and have everything in order ready deep into 2021 Q2orQ3 when they restock to get the best ps5 experience i can.
Meanwhile Demon souls stares at me from the other side of the room.
What's the point scalpers will get them all and it will be an issue until the pandemic is over and they can get them into shops, Sony isn't doing anything about it but could make up a system if they wanted to I'm sure. But until the world is out and about and can know c19 isn't as bad and shops open and stock is there physically online orders for demanding stuff will be scalped
So after going live at 9:00 PM, and getting 5 or 6 errors in adding the console to my cart, the entire stock apparently got sold in less than a minute, and I missed it.
I tried and failed to get one. Im hoping by my birthday in March things will be looking better.
I wonder how much money Sony is losing with all these PS5's sitting in scalpers garage instead of in the hands of gamers? Gamers would be spending money on the Playstation Store.
Guys, it's gonna be an uphill battle as long as morality orbits around scalpers.
[EDIT: It's worth a news article, really. @Quintumply, @Shogunrok, @get2sammyb, it's an... interesting story.]
@Splat I don’t think they give a *****, they’re swimming in money like DuckTales right now after boasting about the biggest console launch ever. The consoles are sold, they don’t care who got them.
Here in the UK some independent stores I know of are getting in more stock in next 3 days.... so keep trying people
Over 50 people waited since 11pm yesterday outside of GameStop in the mall I work and they only had 2 😂 This makes me want to wait as long as possible to get one.
@Fenbops Yeah but his point is that they don't make money off console sales, they make it off software and subscriptions. If they sold a billion PS5s but no one bought any games or subbed to PS+, they'd still lose money. That said, I seriously doubt anywhere near the majority of consoles were sold to scalpers so it should only make a slight difference.
@Matroska it was a valid point he made.
Looks like easter here in the UK or Summer 2021.
I'm waiting until spring to get a PS5.
lol & lol i give up for now it's crazy and stand no chance of getting one. On launch day at midnight uk i was on amazon and game ready and refreshing ...
Amazon only had scalpers selling them for £850+1400 and the game site crashed it was a nightmare.
Day 2 on the game site they where making people wait over an hour to get a ps5 when they had stock so i waited ages in an online cue and gave up.
Fingers crossed for easter or summer 2021
With the cooling issue and the reported stick drift on the new controller, I might be waiting for the next iteration before I buy a PS5.
Hi - Has anybody thought of asking the Guy in the Red Suit ...?
Thought I would offer this advice having sent my letter express delivery to the North Pole a few weeks ago ...! Fingers Crossed.
@Saitama117 there’s stick drift? Man that does my head in on my switch.
So basically the article is where to buy a PS5 on cyber Monday and in the UK it’s nowhere lol.
Very have had some consoles delivered...mine was despatched today.
Unfortunately via Yodel so RIP
I have not gotten one yet. 😕 hoping cyber Monday is successful but I doubt it. Damn scalpers. 😫😫
The only accessory i needed i didnt get was the dualsense charging station... and the one accessory i have and didn't hook up yet is the hd camera.... what can you use the hd camera for anyways?
When: At the end of next year, when the first games (dedicated to the platform) will be announced and come out, maybe 2022.
Where: Everywhere you like
Looks like an apple and orange & banana will have to do for christmas
Does anyone know why there's such a shortage of the Media Remotes?I can't find them anywhere in the states.
Is the hunt to give Sony £450 but not being able to because of bots, scarcity, and scalpers getting anyone else down? I'm becoming genuinely despondent after being in two queues today only to be told they had sold out.
@Pillybaul Online party chat without a headset, I hope.
And Smyths went live at 10.30pm tonight and was sold out by 10.45pm. Joke.
@kiki3400 I entered my details and hit order only for it to not complete, I think. I guess it didn't as I have no confirmation email. Had so many crashes along the way. This is ridiculous...
I'm just going to wait until Jan or Feb
GUIDE: WHERE TO BUY PS5!
*Lists every single store that doesn't have any PS5s.
A few places not on this list.. it you may as well ask for money for Christmas to pit towards the console, I keep looking for both next gen systems and it’s pointless. If not there at the right time forget it... none of them state the time they will put the devices up for sale so unless your a bot it’s pointless..
So this guide just reminds us that ps5 is out of stock everywhere! Lol very kind!
I'm debating over paying but I feel once I do it will be everywhere.
We have all seen this movie of a console before...a peak will occur leading up to 1/1/21 as Christmas-returns occur stock will see a bump. Then post Christmas-present-purchase will further cause stock to ascend and ebay scaplers will take hopefully a hard gut shot to their prices. Within the next 6 weeks I suspect we will be getting into a point of easily during "that given week (maybe not day)" finding a unit. In the meantime- at least we have the entertainment of jpg post to screw bots on ebay to stick to it scalpers.
@legalstep I have a feeling ps5 won’t be in good supply for quite a while yet. Demand seems insanely high from what I can tell.
I got one delivered yesterday after adding it to my EE phone contract! Only trouble now is that it has to stay in it's box until Xmas as it's 'for my son'!
FYI: many of the stores you listed for "North America" don't operate in Canada.
I feel I am the only one that does not have or get lucky to get my hands on a PS5 lol.
Or if you're in Australia - good luck next year.
Finally bagged one yesterday. Time to rotate the PS5 to the PS4 spot in the living room, the PS4 to the PS3 spot in the bedroom and the PS3 to one of the kids if they want it.
