That's how I got my ps5 and xbsx Pre-orders in. My store called me to confirm. Picked up the receipt later that week. F'n awesome!
Luckily I still do some 3D modelling for work, so had been able to expense out a GTX 2080 a few years ago for my home workstation. It's still using an old Xeon, so probably CPU limited for gaming anyways
But PS5s on Friday at GS... has anyone successfully gotten GS to shift $50 from another pre-order to PS5 over the phone?

The only reason Microsoft is being “so transparent” is that they messed up big time last gen and are still trying to recover the ground they lost. I do like a lot of the features they have, but I don’t believe for a second any of these companies are “for the people”, they are just trying to find advantages over the competitors to make more money.
Precisely. That competition lead Microsoft to make decisions and changes that would please gamers, their customers. From this GPU was born. I love Xbox BC. It is a huge selling point for me. I have tons of old gen games still.
This has lead to Sony developing PS Now- albeit an inferior product. Moreover PS+ customers also get PS+ collection on ps5 launch day. I've heard the criticism about it- but it's still something that Sony did for its customers at no additional charge - which they may not have done at all were it not for the success of Microsoft's GPU.
Who knows, we may actually get more PS4 BC. But that still remains to be seen at 2 months from launch!

The great and mighty Oz has spoken. So should we take their word for it like good lil sheep?
i thought Sony just tweeted that they will hit demand?
They also said pre-orders would go live on 9/17. How did that go?
They also could be more transparent about backwards compatibility.
I love Sony’s games and consoles believe me- been loyal since the ps1. But Sony as a company I don’t really care for.
Microsoft as a company on the other hand- love what they’re doing with GPU and BC. They just seem to be way more transparent and honest with their customers. Just don’t care for Microsoft’s exclusive games.
Will keep my ps5 pre-order still and remain undecided about upgrading from my cyberpunk xb1x.
Sorry, not my intention to start a console war as I own both a ps4 and xb1x. Just venting my frustration with a company that I have been purchasing from for 20+ years.

Thanks for the heads up about the Little Falls store but it was picked clean of most of the goodies this afternoon.
Too tired to remember what games were in the gutted pile so I didn't say which ones but it was defintely better than any expectation I had walking into the door. I expected nts)
I got Prey for $1, Shadow war 50 c, and a few sports games. 16 games for $12.xx. Not too bad but don’t go out of your way.

Most of my haul was $5 each. TMNT mutants in Manhattan and Genesis classics were $7 each. Fifa 18 was 1 fn dollar!!
Most of these were behind the locked glass with incorrect price labels.

Try a different chat rep or try calling. It's $100 bro- it's worth the effort.
I had the chance to buy it from target but the chat person refused to honor the $100 off deal, even though EVERY major competitor of theirs had dropped the price. Good job to you!
