GameStop announced it will have more PS5 consoles available to preorder tomorrow, September 25, both online and in stores. The retailer did not share a specific time for the restock.
Also, Sony sent out a second batch of direct preorders.... unnecessary panic out the gate.
Unnecessary in hindsight. But no one knew what was happening or available until Sony told us two days after they were sold out.
Looks like I’m camping out tonight outside at GameStop.
God damn! And here i am in India, we still don't have a price and no preorders yet. Meanwhile the XboxS is already up for preorders since day before yesterday. Anyone here from India too? Why is it taking this long?
@outsider1624, Sony obviously stumbled out of the gate. There are a lot of custom components in the PS5 but hopefully over the next month they will start to push stock to you. There is only this: https://themakoreactor.com/... Which indicates the Bureau of Indian Standards, that choked the PS4 may be partially at fault.
Regardless, I will be camping to get my brother one for Christmas. Unbeknownst to me, my gf preordered mine through her best buy gold membership, fully paid! She earned major cookie points, I know.
negative, people act like they never preordered anything before LOL, it's insane, i've been around for the ps2, ps3 & ps4 launches all of them were similar, except the ps3 because people were getting killed in line over the console.
Well I didn't get an email and who knows if I'll get a pre-order online? Looks like my panic will continue.
How is it unnecessary and 100s and maybe millions of people didn't get a preorder? And probably still won't tommorow? And this batch is the batch that is comeing out after launch
Because it happened last time and will happen next time. Completely unnecessary panic. Everyone claims to have huge backlogs...why not take it easy and catch up...after your done you will easily find a ps5
LMAO because you think any console launch will ever supply enough consoles lol. If it does, that launch wasn't the greatest. It was pretty obvious they'd have a second wave of preorders. They do plan on releasing more than last gen at launch so it would only make sense that they didn't completely sell out in 2 hours lol
Because its a videochame console. . .any panic over it shows a a severe separation from reality
You don’t think it’ll be mass chaos tomorrow?
I already have my preorders but I went to GameStop to get Mafia. There were a lot of people in the short time I was there, but most of them didn’t enter the store due to the sign on the door announcing no PS5s. The manager said there had been a long line at opening and they sold out today’s store allocation as soon as the doors opened.
“ Also, Sony sent out a second batch of direct preorders.... unnecessary panic out the gate.” Finally got the acceptance email from Sony for PS5 pre orders. Hoping I secure one this time around! 🤞
I wish you the best of luck! I got mine in the first batch and secured my order. The process was super smooth and hassle-free, way better than the rush at other online retailers.
“I wish you the best of luck! I got mine in the first batch and secured my order. The process was super smooth and hassle-free, way better than the rush at other online retailers.“ Thanks! Hopefully it will go smooth for me. I’ve been incredibly unlucky so far. Glad to hear you secured one yourself.
Good luck on that. Hope you snag one.
Finally got a PS5 Digital Edition from the Sony invitation! Hopefully others are able to get theirs today. I feel their pain.
Congrats, man. Hope you get it this time. I got the GameStop bundle a few hours ago!
If you can, do it this way. I did this and it was much less annoying than trying to get a Series x with the retail refresh hopping.
Good luck folks! I was fortunate and snagged three PS5s on the first day preorders.
Update: Gamestop is sold out. I hope people were able to preorder. I snagged another. Don't believe their websote when it says you are in line, there is no need to refresh.
The PlayStation Direct pre-orders are starting in 30 minutes. If anyone has an invite you better get it in and log in.
Well, panic is never good, but I don't think everyone who wants a PS5 is going to be able to get one this holiday. In fact, I think they will be very hard to find, so I don't think I would just assume I could pick one up easily.
Fingers crossed. Hopefully bots won't crash the site.
The email from Sony is a specific tie in to your psn. So it will be the best place if you recurved your email. Best Buy has a waiting room.. but not sure how that works. GameStop has a waiting room as well. So retailers may be taking steps to avoid the scenario they themselves created. Not Sony. But just helpful info. Sonys invite starts at 10pm pacific time, No clue for actual retailers. Amazon allows you to sign up... < but no clue if that is an invite list, or just a “hey, we are taking orders”.
*10 am pacific time.
Thank you @la_zeo
Got through the gamestop waiting room this morning EST and it was already sold out 😵😵
Got into Gamrstop's waiting room 4 times but still didn't get one.
There needs to be a way if stopping scalpers ebaying them off
eBay should stop none business seller listing items that are not in hand. In other words if they don't have a PS5 on hand ready to ship (which is impossible) you should not be able to list it.
Ebay's policy used to specify preorder items up for sale are to be within 30 days of the item launch but they never enforced this. I am not sure if they have changed this requirement or not. There was some loophole employed by Games Workshop recently that saw all scalper versions of a Warhammer 40k box set removed. Not sure how they did this since other box items from them are being scalped.
There is, dont buy them on eBay. Let those b's waste there money when no one buys them. Gotta be an idiot to by those systems its not even worth $1000
It's a no risk scenario though. No one buys the jacked up eBay console, just return it
Many of those buyers are wealthy folk from countries that do not have the PS5 officially releasing yet. Difficult to block them from treating scalpers.
I have a coworker that has 5 PS5 preorders. 2 Target, 2 Amazon, and 1 Best Buy. He already has been offered $900 for them. He said I could have one for retail but I told him if someone is dumb enough to pay you that much get money. I have patience.
I know GS is doing in store orders at 12 p.m when they open.Best to call and ask ylur local store
I am going in tomorrow to pick up Mafia for the PS4 and the manager there told me she is only getting 6 units, all disc versions.
Dang. The associate wouldn’t tell me the numbers. If it’s six you won’t get it unless you camp like 2 hours ago.
I already have 2. One from that store and one from best buy. I just want my Mafia for the weekend. They had 12 PS5s on the first wave and only 6 Xboxes on their run. Still it looks like the PS5 is running in very short supply worldwide.
I've already gotten my pre-order on the PS5 disc based version in the 1st wave so I'm all set :D Good luck to all who intend to pre-order the PS5.
Don’t expect to get a PS5 until after the holidays at this point. I’m just going to wait out the hype and not stress over trying to get one early.
Love it this has been on Twitter for 6hrs and it just now hit n4g
I'll be waiting at Gamestop 2 hours before the store opens.
You're probably too late. I drove past two gamestops to see if there were lines there definetly were at least 10 each at both locations. I already have one just want to try to get the pulse headset last accessory I need
I got one. Theres was like 10 people in line when I got there but my Gamestop got 26 units.
Yea i went back after my morning coffee had about 20 in line and 23 or so ps5 all disc apprently. I was tempted to grab a 2nd ps5 but I just preordered the headset instead
People already camped outside my GameStop
Quarantine got ppl having too much time on their hands
they been doing this for years if not decades.
Well, with all those mornings when I got up to snag Limited Run collector's editions, I have experience with this sort of thing. That said, I'm choosing to stay out of it and grab some popcorn while I wait for the hype to die down. I want a PS5, and I will get one some months down the road, but I really don't need to rush to get one. Also, 13 Sentinels Aigis Rim and Super Mario 3D All Stars drained a good deal of my budget this month...so count yourselves lucky that I'm a threat to snagging a pre-order who's chosen to abstain. :)
For clarification, (I was told this by a GameStop manager) these will NOT be launch day systems. These will come later but will guarantee that you get one.
I believe it. The PS5 is a true next gen machine but because of the high number of custom components the PS5 is in short supply and being grossly outsold by the Xbox.
Don't know how you figured that. Maybe its my gamestop but in total 51 ps5s have been preordered vs 10 xbox series x/s. If anything having a second wave so soon shows the exact opposite that its not in as short a supply as its made out to be m, relatovely for a launch console.
Good luck to everyone
I feel so bad for those who are still struggling to get these consoles confirmed. I really hope that those people who really want them, get them. Best of luck to you all
they will be gone QUICK! good luck.
Tomorrow? OH MY GOD, THATS TODAY !!!
Good luck everyone.
I got one this time.came to gamestop at 4a.m.i am number 6, Did the same for the XSX.
you got one today at 4am?
I was in line at 4
The pre orders today in the UK were a disgrace spending so long in online queue only to be kicked out. Sony need to make available as many as they can
Good luck everybody
Just so everyone knows went to a gamestop yesterday to confirm for a friend and this wave is not set for release day. These will sent out a week after release
I went from waiting in que, not to worry, don't refresh to out of stock just like last time.
