It does tell you if it's sold out before the timer ends. You just need to read the messages below.

Most of these drops from every company and website is pure luck if you aren't a bot.

Has there been a rough estimate of when stock releases on the website? Haven’t had a chance to try my luck on the last few drops, but wasn’t sure if it was randomly during the night or later.

Even though it hasn't worked out for me, I actually prefer the PS Direct system.  If you are in the waiting room, you get randomly assigned a place in the queue when it starts, so it is similar to a lottery and does help to level the playing field.  Apparently there are ways to get a few more chances (multiple browsers or devices), but it doesn't seem as bad as others.

Has anyone tried the Octoshop extension for in-stock notifications in Chrome?  I'm curious how well it works.

These PS Direct queues, is there something you can sign up for to get notified that it's happening? I only see it when CAG posts about it on the front page and by then it's always too late.

I went to 2 local Target stores today. One had 25+ on hand and 20 in back. The other had 0 on hand and 23 in the back. Drop has to be happening tomorrow morning.

Update: I ended up just e-mailing Gamestop via their site, and they offered to replace or refund the $50 code and PS+ code.  Refunded.  That worked out well; I didn't want to pay full price for a PS+ code anyway, and only did so because the bundle was the only way to get the console.

Wellp, this sucks.

 

Should have clarified in my post: at the time of posting, I had just requested a refund (after they offered) but hadn't received the refund yet.

 

I received a reply today finally, and they said that due to their policies, they couldn't refund it after all.  In the email, they sent me the two PSN codes.  Tried to redeem them just now, and they both said they were already redeemed.  I know I didn't redeem them myself, as I never received them in the first place.  Hope I'm not getting screwed out of $110 worth of codes now...

A very limited number of PlayStation 5 console bundles will be available today - online only - and will go live soon.

I'm not interested in bundles. Jake Randell thinks Target will drop Thursday morning but not 100% sure and says it might not be at the normal time. Sounds like he is getting conflicting inside info.

I agree i could have easily bought the costco bundle close to launch but the extra stuff was not worth it.

Only the two bundles seem to be purchasable. That's a pass.

Agreed. I asked a friend if they wanted the other Dualsense, and was able to get the Disc bundle in my cart, with my payment info in... But I just couldn't pull the trigger. The $660 price-tag, coupled with the $70 games just makes it more difficult for me to jump in at this point.

Bundles were available for quite a while. I can wait for a non-bundle disc version though.

I tried to get any of them. I was able to get to the click on these images with the disc bundle but after clicking verify, it just sat at that screen. I tried for 40 min and failed at every PS5 they were selling. Very frustrating. Now to try this al lover again when Target drops next.

Not really. Every time you clicked add to cart or pre order, it said check back in a couple of minutes.
