yeah, i dont see how anyone gets these things. I never even get it to my cart.

Anecdotal experience. I had one FF browser open trying to click in the Disc bundle and another Chrome window trying to get the digital. After a while, the digital add to cart button was bringing up a captcha but then still failing to Add to Cart after completing. Tried that a few times, with same results. Then in the same window i copied in the disc URL and got the captcha again - but Add to cart worked the first time there.

My wait time went from 19 minutes to 8 and then steadily counted down. I made it through order and payment so I am hoping I was actually able to snag it. Best of luck to you all.

Got the more than an hour again on my phone and laptop using VPN. Same as every other time I've tried.

i think if they make you wait like 20mins its pretty much sold out.  I wouldn't waste the time.

For anyone who has a PS5 currently, is it true about the joystick drift similar to the joycon drift on the switch?

Can't comment because I haven't touched mine in over three months, but I didn't have any issues back then. :S

Doesn't need to be different IPs. You just need different browsers on same device and you can use private browsing for each so on PC use:

Internet explorer
Edge
Firefox
Opera
Google Chrome

If you use private browsing you have 10 chances to get into queue with low time and actually get one.

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...

And now Gamestop emailed me back saying they refuse to replace the non-working codes.  What the hell?  Going to open a claim with my credit card company over it.

Also open a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.

all the stores near me show in stock but none of them actually let me place the order. i guess it's a plus that you can actually add it to your cart

I kept getting an error at my local store. Tried again at a different store and it let me check out on the website. Hopefully, I can pick it up!

by the time I got the twitter alert, targets in 50miles of me were completely sold out.  Was able to get it in the cart and said it was out of stock.  Why does target make you pick a store, just ship the damn thing.

Had it in my cart right at 7:50a. Even have gift cards for target to cover the full cost of the system. Still couldn't do it. Just not interested in the launch console right now, not going to buy in the hype of the artificial scarcity of the system.

Yeah, bummer.  Not sure if it made a difference, but I had it in my cart and it was giving me an issue entering my password to confirm it's me.  Either way, no PS5 for me today.  That Octoshop extension on Chrome was a bust too.

I tried, but glad it didn't work.  I wouldn't get to play it any time soon as I've got a lot to still play on the Series X.  I've no interest in a souls game, so there really isn't anything new to play.

I have zero interest in the console, I'm waiting for the Pro in a few years when there are games.  I'm looking for one for my nieces birthday.  Guess shes getting an apple watch.

Yeah. I tried that extension too. Luckily I was refreshing on my own.
