  • $745! Cheap

  • Now should I trade my PS4 Pro in for it. I have PS4 Pro and One X and both the PS5 and Series X are compatible with all the same games they are. Even PSVR will work on PS5.

    Or should I pack the PS4 Pro away and wait for someone to make a jailbreak for the firmware it is on.

      • Daaang. Can't decide if I'll go digital or not

        • +5

          Physical games are pretty much always cheaper from JB, Amazon etc. You'll end up paying more in the long-run if you lock yourself into only being able to buy games from PS Store.

          Figured that was a reason for me to go with the physical version lol, that and almost all my PS4 games are physical too for the same reason, so wouldn't be able to play any of those on PS5 if I go digital.

          • @MitchyD1989: That's true. But $150 cheaper! I'll end up going for the Disc version, though, just to be safe

            • +1

              @ThithLord: Haha yeah good idea. And just think of it similar to current pricing, PS Store still sells games at $100 and most retailers sell them at $69 at most, sometimes cheaper. After 5 physical games you'll already make back the difference you would have saved from the digital console.

            • @ThithLord: Cheaper games, and being able to resell your games, and being able to trade games with friends. No-brainer for me.

              Deposit paid.

    • +1

      Need to be the first one to have this. My 10th month old baby will be very happy. Not sure about the mom. O well, can always file divorce.

      • PRE-ORDEREEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

    • Best place to preorder based on previous launches? Early days yet but I'm guessing there is minimal discounting if any, and little variety on bundles offered.

      • I've read that both PS and Xbox have had covid related supply chain issues so I'd be shocked if there were any 'day 1' discounts.
        Edit: Sorry missed the first part of your question. Not sure about pre-order but I got my xbox one shortly after launch from JB-HiFi in a bundle with ~6 games. I think it was one of these bundles
        Edit Edit: NM I got mine in 2014 and it launched in 2013 >.<

    • Fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiinally! So excited!

    • EB GAME JUST PRE ORDEDED

    • Just pre-ordered two one for me, one for the misses just to make sure it wouldn’t end with a divorce.

      • Did you use same address etc?
        We did different names but same address for switch recently and they canceled the second order as it was limited to one per household.

  • Ordered mine!!!

  • Pre-orders are already sold out at EB for the disc version.

  • EB games “post launch” (expected 2020) pre orders go live at 10.45am

    Cant believe this machine is still cheaper than new Iphones! Preordered!!!

  • +2

    How's this for bargaining. Just pre-ordered from Target for $749.
    Using my team member discount card - Total $711.55
    Used $700 in gift cards at 6% off - Total $669.55
    Used $10 flybuy dollars at checkout - Total $659.55
    Also, I set aside $390 from grocery budget this year by redeeming Flybuy Dollars/Woolworths points for groceries instead.
    In total, I paid of my own money $279.55 for the PS5.
    Now I just need to sell my PS4 Pro.

    • -1

      Technically each of those $10 flybuys dollars cost you $2000 to get. (Depending on bonuses)

      But well done :)

      • Not really. The points are a bonus to whatever I was already going to buy. I don't go out of my way to earn bonus points, just activate offer without paying attention to what they are.
        I have a coles mastercard so 2 points for every $1 I spend no matter what I buy (including paying bills) / where I shop. And one of my friends with a large family actually uses my flybuys card so that's a ton of points. $70 worth showed up yesterday from bonus points that I know she earned for me as I haven't even been to Coles in over 2wks.

    • Can you help out someone who missed ordering?? Not for the discount, just to be able to order from somewhere

      • Gamesmen still has stock. I would also refresh the official sony store and Amazon ( for the digital version atleast).

      • Sorry. I don't know any stores that still have pre-order stock available

  • Desperately looking for anywhere still taking November pre orders, if anyone knows of anywhere!

    • Gamesmen still has stock. I would also refresh the official sony store and Amazon ( for the digital version atleast).

      • I think their website is getting hit pretty hard lol.

    Harvey Norman and EB games, have pre-orders for both the disc version and digital live atm.

    Harvey Norman delivery - Dec 2020
    EB games - 2021 ??

    https://www.ebgames.com.au/product/ps5/267678-playstation-5-...

    • Harvey Norman December 2020 delivery is no longer active.

  • Alright got my ps5 launch console easy, let’s see the website ddos for the Xbox launch when everyone is trying to get on. Bet in won’t get one

    • +1

      Honestly the XBOX has better specs etc but i do not think the demand will be as high, lack of any 1st party launch games etc is an issue for them

      • Won't be an issue at all. The majority of people don't care about exclusives, they care what their friends are playing on. Next to that, people just get both.

        There will be plenty more XBS1/SS available than the PS5, and they'll also allocate them overtime between their pre-order launch and the release launch.

        Retailers will most likely remain sold out once they are, but the official store will periodically have more stock for pre order each week or so.

    To my suprise my daughter has pre ordered the PS5 from EB Games (she pre ordered too late to get it from Jb Hi Fi)

    And my son who I though would of put in a pre order said he can wait till they release some must have games like the new God of war

  • Merged from PS5 Pre Order The Good Guys

    Hi,
    Has anyone preordered the PS5 from the good guys and heard back from them?

    • +2

      I put my name down on Monday but I've not received an SMS yet.

      • +1

        Just got my SMS!

    • +2

      You have to have pre registered PRIOR to the PS5 Pre Order Launch
      They have sent out emails to people who were registered prior and invited them to place and order (and pay in full)
      My neighbour has done his order with them through this process.

      He has a confirmed order for launch day

      https://press-start.com.au/news/playstation/2020/09/21/the-g...
      The Good Guys has launched its PS5 pre-orders through a different mechanic. It seems as though you needed to have pre-registered your interest before today. If you did, then you should then get an email in your inbox (if you haven’t already). You then need to fill in a form, then they’ll verify your order within the next few days and then you’ll be asked to pay in full over SMS. These appear to be launch units, but you must pay within 24 hours of receiving the text

      only people who had pre registered before this week were invited so far

      • So your neighbour got the SMS invite to complete payment?

        • +1

          Yes but he had registered quite early on and he got his email then his sms the following day.
          he clicked a link and paid in full.
          he had done the "fill out this form for updates" weeks ago and then when TGG went live with their own pre orders he was contacted

          He simply filled out the "register here for updates" quite some time ago.
          His email was something like we see you wanted updates on PS5 we are now accepting pre orders for those who had expressed an interest.
          Click here to fill out this form and if successful in securing a pre order we will be in contact in a few days with further instructions (or something like that)

          • @jimbobaus: Ahh okay! Might be dependent on location too. Thanks for the info.

          • @jimbobaus: Im just glad people are getting accepted. Gives me hope aha

    • +1

      Like ive done the preorder form on Monday that I got emailed but I just haven't heard anything back. Like I emailed them about it and they said I should've gotten an email on Wednesday about whether or not I was successful but I haven't gotten anything.

      • Oh ok, i see they are doing 2021 stock pre orders now, maybe there is just a lot of them to work though.

        • Yeah like my invite was for the launch ones I just hope they get back to me tbh

      • Pre order form is the name and email to fill in their site?

        • No that's just the registration of interest. They send you an email inviting you to preorder and that's the preorder form.

    • I did the preorder form on Monday and awaiting the all important SMS too . The good guys sent a second round of emails on Thursday for pre order applications my friend got it

    • +1

      I got my sms for the preorder today i did the preorder form on monday

      • +1

        got mine today ! Happy days :)

    • I wish they would let us preorder the accessories from the good guys as well

    • Just got the text a few hours ago to make payment. But they never stated if its launch day release?

      • I got the email today once link was clicked it said was for 12 of nov

      • I got the targeted email to buy it. Now waitng for the SMS.

      • same they say from 12th November but given how they had the invite system and how they sent SMS after application approval I would assume there is a good chance they have allocated stock from the first batch

        • I just got my payment SMS and secured mine.

          My guess is that they sent out emails to those who registered based on their initial allocation, some of those people would have secured one though other retailers so once they work out what’s left from their initial drop they will continue to offer them to the next lot on the wait list.

    • I got a PS5 and an XBOX x. I'll see which I like best and flog the other one. Probably cheaply on fleabay.

      • if you're flogging the ps5 I might be interested as I missed out on the pre-orders

    • Hey guys just wanted to know, if you get that email and follow the link and fill the form out before the cut off date stated on the email (which I have done) does that mean I will definitely receive a SMS or is there still a chance I won't? I did it on Tuesday the 29th of September and it is now Sunday the 4th October without any SMS.
      Thanks for the help.

      • There is still a chance you won't They don't guarantee that you get the SMS as it is pending approval. It takes 5 working days( i got it on the 6th day ) so I would wait it out ! and hope for the best !. Good Luck :)

    • Aw okay thanks, I hope to God I get it.. I just don't know why I wouldn't if it's purely a pending approval type of thing.. I filled the form out before the cutoff time so you'd think there's no reason I shouldn't get it.

      • I just got my text and paid half hour ago

    • Got mine today too, so happy!

    • -1

      signed up 2 weeks ago and didn't hear back what a pack of dogs.

    • Got a text today. Pick up store was Castle Hills and I couldn't change it. For those in Sydney, did you get the same?

    • I got my text just now and paid!!! Happy days :D

    • Just got my text and paid. Initially I selected delivery in Syd and whilst paying I didn't see any option to change to store pick up.
      Not sure whether this is launch stock - doubt it, but regardless, it's done now :)
