Best Buy testing waters for how BF will go with that soft opening. Pretty sure they'll hand out tickets rather than have lines, which will just piss people off when they think there's nobody waiting lol.

Got a shipment notification today with Wal-Mart from my August 25th order, after it was initially delayed.

Is it confirm all best buy will have this?  Might camp out for ym brother tomrorow.  The worst thign is when they are passing out ticket.

What discount


Those who got their system delayed received a discount of anywhere between $50 and $100.

YMMV. I was denied

Most chatted in, with great results.

The clown I got asked me to build a friendly relationship with Walmart by forgiving their mistake.

It’s at least a step in the right direction. Most will go in the hands of real people instead of scalpers/bots. Honestly if you’re going to spend 12-18 hrs outside it might be better to just pay a small premium. Ps5s and Xboxes aren’t going for much these days after eBay fees.

and they don't even know how many will be available. Some people are gonna wait all night and still not get one

Supposedly up to 50 of each sku per store. So probably 50-200 consoles max (ps5s and Xboxes).

My brother got one showed up at 7:30 am got a ticket for the non disc version and was told he could go home and come back later to pick it up.  He went home went to bed and than went back to Best buy and picked it up no problem.

How early did you get in line

Left at 5, got in line at 6.. there were 72 people including me at the time..

by the time they opened it was around 300.

 

They had signs up forbidding people to line up before 4.

You were only allowed to choose 1 console

but because my roommate was there, we were able to get 1 of each console...

 

They had 100 XBSX, and over 50 of each PS console.

Didn't require any bundles.

 

After everyone got a ticket, we were told to return in an hour. Anyone who did NOT pick up their console by noon, would loose their reserve.. and man were there people waiting for that. Just small groups of people watching from the edge of the line.

Managed to snag one finally from Wal-Mart.

 

Here is an exploit to get around the touch and hold bullshit on desktop:

1. Have two tabs open (one on Walmart homepage, one on the PS5 listing. I used Chrome)

2. Spam add to cart until you finally get the verification pop-up. The cart in the top right should show the subtotal.

3. Switch to the second tab on Walmart homepage, click cart, and check out as normal. I even had enough time to sign-in to Paypal and check out no issues. Got my confirmation email in seconds.

Thanks for sharing. The nostalgic side of me finds joy in reading these experiences.
