These people buying more than 1 should sell fast before stores start getting more. I have a feeling we will see an influx in the weeks leading up to Christmas. I know target told me they were going to be putting some out tomorrow as they did with the Xbox series x’s day after.

Walmart 1 Amazon 0 at the moment ... Still unclear how to largest, most profitable online company in the world can't manage to update their shipping details to clarify whether I actually even have a unit on its way. My plan was always to cancel Prime after BF ... looks like that's going to continue to be the plan.

When they "put them out tomorrow" does that mean you have to go in store at open to buy them?  Or will you be able to order them online for in store pickup?  And if the latter, when do they go live on the website?  At store open time or like middle of the night?

Has anybody ever dealt with the company Walmart uses for their extended warranties? I’m think of adding the four year one onto my PS5.

Thanks

Best Buy has already confirmed they won't have any Xbox Series X or PS5's for in-store purchases until 2021. Amazon sent emails to some Xbox Series X preorders that they may not ship until 12/31.  Walmart sales for today won't be delivered for several weeks (people already saying they are seeing 11/24 and 12/1 as delivery dates). That tells me stock is gonna be tight through the end of the year.  I'm sure we will get some here and there online but how will it be any different than what we are seeing today? Bots are gonna scoop them up and hold them hostage through the holidays thanks to the ability to return them.  I think if there were solid numbers of units coming down the pipeline, Microsoft and Sony would have already told us.  I like your optimism but nothing points to that being realistic at the moment.

Best Buy had the worst packaging...one small row of packaging and it was standing on its side bulging out of the box.

 

Ended up with an extra disc version if anyone has a nice switch bundle or retro bundle to trade?

 

The box is massive.

My feeling is more this. These are going to be scarce for many months ahead.

People can shit on gamestop all they want, but they have their shit together at almost every launch.

 

Gamestop PS5 bundle was the first to arrive. Amazon broke my shipment up and sent Demon's Souls and system separate. Still waiting on Ps5. 

 

Gamestop XSX bundle ordered on launch day will be here tomorrow. 

 

I know yall hate some GS bundles, but ive never had an issue with ordering from them on hot items like this. I did the same for PS4 and Xbox one releases as well.

I got to open my Taco Bell X box series X and the processor for that system seems very fluid, responsive, and the hub where you watch game preview/trailers will play while you side scroll through other game details. The only comparison I can make is it appears more responsive (obviously) to how responsive the PS4 pro seemed with a Samsung EVO SSD upgrade vs the stock HDD. Waiting on ps5 delivery currently too....

All three of my PS5's arrived. I had put in three orders just in case any of them were canceled. One from Amazon, Walmart, and best buy. I was surprised most that Walmart came through. I kept my best buy one, and two of my co-workers came and grabbed the other two. Felt great to get them a console at cost, and not have to worry about dealing with resellers. Overall extremely impressed with how smooth it went. Hoping the best for everyone in here finding one, and that your orders go as smoothly as mine. Here's to an excellent generation!

Wait time is already over an hour again. I was about 5 minutes away from getting through last night when they sold out.

This is lame.  Would have been a lot more fun to go the traditional route and line up before a store opens, but alas.

Got to the security code again and got the error, was able to go back though so it still has that page loaded up and I just have to confirm the security code. I am going to leave that page up and not mess with it and try to just add the code and hit send on the next batch. Has anyone tried that or are you re-adding it to cart each time?

Secured both my xbox and PS5 on Costco.

 

I bought my xbox at 10:19am CT on Costco .... so I was checking their website around 930am CT for PS5. It went live about 9:45am CT.

 

Had so much lag checking out, but after waiting for each page to load correctly, it went through. Had trouble with entering CC numbers but set up Visa Checkout on Costco and that solved that problem.

I had a ton of chances to buy PS5 bundle on GS last night ... but just couldn't bring myself to pay $880 w/ tax for their ridicilous bundle. I mean, at least let me pick out the two games that come with it!
