I really need for the Series X preorder to go smoothly on Tuesday I want to cash out and I missed the PS5 preorders at my local store. I know at one point my GameStop was taking people names and numbers down to be contacted about the new systems and the PS5 list for like 4 times as big as the Xbox one. But now with people having a scalper mentality because everything is so scarce I assume it’s going to be a nightmare. Plus with their All-access program getting both systems isn’t that much of a hit on the pocketbook at launch. Two of the guys I work are pure PS guys and both of them are also getting XB Series S systems because of All-Access.

Was just coming here to ask this too. Shows the same for me when I try their site and it seems like some people on Twitter are having the same issue. Their website probably crashed from all the traffic they're getting.

yeah, obviously gamestops website thinks people actually going there to buy something is a cyber attack.

I cashed out my credit as well. I passed on an extra controller for now, since I’m mainly a single player gamer. If there were alt colors I would’ve snagged one though.

I figure I can always cancel that if I decide later. Launch games I have enough PSN credit, but I have a friend the comes over to game and no extra controller. No 2 player games really though, so maybe it was a bad move.

It has not shown up on my account yet. I checked the app, nothing there.

GameStop has implemented its anti flipper final solution, you are permanently blocked if you have been found to have made an overall profit on your trade ins

Unrelated to PS5 but there's a live chat option on the gamestop site now.

Good luck with it. Wait times are just as long as on the phone and if you don't type something while they are "checking your account", it will disconnect after a few minutes.

$5 credit for any PS4/XB1/Switch game towards a PS5 game >> looks like its time to credit out even if we don't have a PS5! 

(FINE PRINT. Game Must be Min $5 value...9-16 to 10-5)

So the controller I preordered now shows up on the desktop pre orders page but still no system yet. And nothing on the app.

Yes, I suggest you print the order status from my orders in your GS account. It shows the correct calculations.

Thank you.

Mine shows on the app, when I ordered over the phone it said "SKU Available" when I checked. Now on the App it says Playstation 5 Console 56 days left. I cant click on it though it says "unable to look up product".

Was this advertised in store or referenced somewhere online on the website?

I still only have the controller on the desktop and nothing on the app. Normally I wouldn't worry, but this has all been a cluster.

Hopefully get a trade bump this weekend to go along with that extra $5 TIV for PS5 games.

Hopefully it just takes time, I ordered when they called me at 6:27 ET. I just checked the website and it shows the PS5 but it also shows the far Cry 6 game that they switched to the PS5 order over the phone. The weird thing is the app shows Watch dogs legion and the PS5 but the website shows those and 3 other pre-orders I did in store.

I managed to get a PS5 pre order online but pick up in store wasn't an option. Is there any way I can change it to a store pick up?
