Also available is a $50 cashback using zip pay and $30 amazon credit with ps5 preorder
Details on cashback can be found here
Edit: Digital version is not yet listed for sale.
Edit: PS5 Sold Out. PS5 Digital Edition now available
Seems a generic Aus-Wide email/date range.
From what I have read on facebook not everyone has received that email yet and the date range varies quite a bit depending on the state.
@Joyeuse: Oh interesting, from the ones i read they all seemed 12/11-16/11. I stand corrected then.
Mine is the same date range and i am in Melb CBD
Hopefully i receive this side of the weekend or Saturday morning which has been common for Amazon recently.
Can't really complain considering most people got the $50 cashback from Zip and a $30 voucher for a brand new console, which is unheard of.
I guess not getting this email means I am not in the first wave. 😭
these dudes really sending me my ps5 5 days after it releases?
Where do you see it is being set 4 days after? They send it on 12th, and it probably arrives after the weekend.
Did anyone who got an email today have priority shipping? Or just expedited?
I have priority shipping and I got an email at 6:54 PM Brisbane time saying that I'd get my PS5 between the 12th and 16th, then I got another email 2 minutes later saying that plans have changed and I'm getting mine between the 17th and 18th, which is really annoying.
I emailed Amazon has I hadn't received a confirmation email.
They responded my stock is secured, my order should start shipping before release day although due to delays it might be late.
In My orders no estimated delivery date is there & no money has been taken out of the account which has left me a little confused.
Yeah, I have the same state, and Amazon gave me the exact same answer.
I gave them a call, they said some people will be receiving emails today regarding the delivery date.
Essentially if you don't receive one of those emails won't be receiving one in the first batch of orders.
Customer service didn't have any info on when a second batch might be coming in which is a bit disappointing as might have been able to secure an order elsewhere.
@spook290: Just got my order, estimated 12th - 16th, happy days!
@spook290: I still didn't receive any dates yet, but they charged me already.
@spook290: I thought everyone who received the email their console is secured would receive the console in the first batch. I won't be very pleased if I don't receive it the next week.
I just got my email (2pm BNE time):
Estimated arrival date: 15/11/2020 - 16/11/2020
price we pay for a $30 amazon coupon
And this will give me another weekend to finish building a new tv unit that will accomodate this beast! It's true what they say, the last 10% takes 90% of the time.
I preordered watchdogs and Fifa 21 with amazon and they both arrived early on release day via a amazon courier. I think it'll be the same tomorrow. Intact most my orders have been a amazon dude for a few months now. I live near chadstone if that helps
Did anyone else get an email message saying that their order got delayed til the 17th-18th? My card just got charged.
I haven't got any email, but I was charged.
I recieved the same email yesterday, but the dates were "15/11/2020 - 16/11/2020", order was being shipped Expedited. Haven't been charged yet but order says 'Preparing for Shipment'.
Payment taken and has been dispatched. It's happening!
Yes, my order was dispatched as well. Strange, they didn't send any email with the dates. Now, the order says it arrives the 19th.
In the Amazon app I have nov 30 as arrival so looks like you're tracking better than me.
Based on my tracking it is going from Perth, so I don't think it will arrive tomorrow to Sydney. 😣
stock is in Perth?
i'm in Perth does it mean I'll get mine tomorrow??
My AusPost tracking says PER2 which is Amazon Fulfilment Centre in Perth, so yeah, you have a high chance of getting it tomorrow.
I've got confirmation emails. But my card not charged yet
Dosh pulled out yesterday, still not shipped though according to site.
Reckons I'll get Spider-Man today though, so I can use it as a coaster until the PS5 arrives.
Goddamn Amazon ruined my evil plan.
Might have to open my EB games one, coz I am an impatience dumbo. :P
Well that's BS it just got sent but via auspost ffs. They've been so reliable with games. But not the console
Is it at least being sent from a fulfilment centre that is close to your place?
Do you recall which shipping option you chose? I paid extra for Priority and also very unhappy it's being sent via Australia Post. I thought it would have been delivered by Amazon.
It just says sent by Amazon commercial services Australia Pty Ltd. So I assume Sydney or Melbourne. Im near chadstone and I normally get auspost day after shipping with Amazon. So hoping for the best. What's odd is they didn't take my cash till like 4am this morning
Good for you, I usually receive packages the second day they are shipped, but this time they shipped PS5 from Perth, so it will take longer. 😭
It normally says per or something similar if its from Perth. So I'm confident it's Melbourne or Sydney. I have to wait and see
Mine still hasn't shipped, preordered it pretty much the minute it went up and money was taken out of my account yesterday. Hopefully it ships sometime today, I'm in Brisbane so let's see if it ships from anywhere close.
Same. I'm also from Brisbane, money got taken out last night, no tracking number yet and hasn't shipped.
mine arrived 5 mins ago, i got lucky it was sent from the Dandenong warehouse so it was able to be delivered today as i live not far from there, although the box was way too big for the PS5 and i didn't think the package was for me at first,
anyone getting updates from Amazon?
Nope, waiting patiently (still hoping to get it on 12th)
Just got off chat with an amazon rep. They've pretty much confirmed that delivery will be delayed and I won't get it on release day =(
"The stock for your order has been secured, but the delivery will be delayed by 2-3 business days. So it will deliver by or before 17th."
That's weird. I was told that they have stock in their warehouse and I should receive it on the 12th, unless carrier delivers it late.
Have you received a notification of the estimated delivery date or notification of delivery?
No, not yet. I hope to receive a shipment notification today or tomorrow if it's meant to arrive on Thursday
@Hazz125: Yeah fingers crossed, cheers mate
same thing, I was told that only delays should be cause of covid restrictions.
Yeh that’s strange. They said stock for my ps5 is secured and ready but will just be delayed as per their COVID delivery guideline.
Let’s hope some of us will be lucky enough to receive it by release.
Just received the following from amazon
Please be advised that we have a revised delivery date for the items you ordered on 17/09/2020 (Order #xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx).
"PlayStation 5 Console"
Estimated arrival date: 12/11/2020 - 16/11/2020
For more details, please visit the Your Account section of our web site :
nothing here yet.
Just got my email.
15th - 16th for me. Good enough I suppose
Hi all, Mac from Zip here.
Wow the day is almost here where we all start receiving our PS5's!!! (unfortunately I don't know any more than what we have all received in our emails from Amazon)
Wanted to prompt you all to double check that you have topped up your Zip account to ensure you have enough balance to cover the size of your PS5 order. From experience, if your Zip transaction is declined for insufficient balance it can sometimes add a delay to your order being dispatched - none of us want to wait longer than we have to. So jump in to your Zip account and click on "Make an additional payment".
We'll be working with Amazon to process your Zip credit back to your account as quickly as possible from when your payment is processed, you'll need to ensure you have the full amount of the order in your Zip account, the credit is processed after the payment is processed.
not sure what you mean it says i have 1000 useable?
You'll be fine then. If you had spent money at another retailer you'd need to ensure enough of it was paid back.
When will we get the 50 credit?
@Rukiata: Hi, the credit from Zip will be applied within 14 days of the charge from Amazon.
Thanks Mac, appreciate the heads up!
Tomorrow will be 14 days since consoles were shipped for the majority of users, and no one has received their credits yet by the looks of it. Any updates?
Annoying - got email 2 weeks ago saying stock secured. Now just received email saying estimated arrival 16/11 to 18/11
Mine says 17/11-18/11, so much for release day delivery :(
I know - so annoying
They really sending me my ps5 5 days after it releases lmfao
Not really, delivery takes time..
"PlayStation 5 Console"
Previous estimated arrival date: 16/11/2020 - 18/11/2020
New estimated arrival date: 12/11/2020 - 16/11/2020
I just updated the shipping address, and selected the same address. The expected delivery date is now changed to 'Arriving tomorrow by 8 PM':
Placed on Thursday, September 17, 2020
Delivery Estimate: Thursday, November 12, 2020
For me it's still "'Not yet shipped. We'll e-mail you when available", but I got the email that my order was secured.
EDIT: Just updated to Priority Delivery on Amazon. Now showing 13th – 16th November. Previously there had been no delivery estimate.
Yup just got mine saying delivery estimated for the 13th -16th Nov.
Amazon sent an email out recently that states the estimated shipment time of PS5 orders to be between 12 - 16 November.
However, if you go to the orders page it says estimated delivery Monday 16 November 2020.
As far as i know, no PS5s have shipped from Amazon as well.
I got the same email yesterday worst case monday but be hopeful for tomorrow.
I could be wrong, but I'm fairly sure the 16th of November falls within the guideline of 12-16th of November?
Is there anyone who got the email saying their console is secured, but they didn't get any update on shipping?
The Xbox i ordered from Amazon shipped on launch day.
So i assume they are shipping after they launch not before
It makes sense, sending it earlier might upset their suppliers.
Delay may affect "resale" on gumtree?
Amazon have dropped the ball lately on getting pre orders out in time for release date.
The embargo has meant they cant ship them until launch day.
Not just consoles. Games too
Really? Why have users below reported theirs have shipped? And wouldn’t that embargo cover all companies from shipping before release day? As if so a friend who preordered from JB has also received notification that theirs has shipped.
@SoDelicious: I think some retailers are shipping a day early so they arrive tomororow
My series X was shipped 8am launch day.
I just updated shipping speed to express which wasn’t an option for me before. Delivery date now says tomorrow by 8PM.
Note that this costs around $9 more
Lucky you - i have no been able to modify my shipment speed - I just get the error when trying to change to express:
We're sorry. An error occurred when we tried to process your request. Rest assured, we're working to resolve the problem as soon as possible. Please try again in a few minutes.
I did it just now cost extra 9 but no biggy
changing delivery speed didn't change the delivery date for me.
I changed to express and the ETA is tomorrow by 8pm
Holding my breath though as prior to changing there was no ETA
I didn't have an ETA, changing to express also gave me 8pm tomorrow. Should I be patient or pay $12…
i paid the extra $10
Thanks for the tips, just paid extra $10 for it.
Amazon AU has completely botched the ps5 preorders. Unlike the US they didn't bother telling people that they hadn't secured enough stock to meet all of the preorders they took. Instead they sent out an email to customers saying that their order had been secured.
So went ahead and cancelled my preorders with other retailers seeing as Amazon were offering a $30 credit for prime members. Now find that they haven't even received my console from their supplier and no info on when I'll be receiving my preordered item. Every time I call I seem to get a different answer from them but they're consistent on one thing, they can't tell me when I will get it. To add insult to injury they say that I'm one of the lucky ones that will get one….. some day.
They just did another round of pre orders with people getting them Nov 17-20
I am not able to change it to express, amazon wont let me change
Amazon just charged me from my Zip pay account.
Just got an email, my ps5 is shipped
mines still not shipped or anything =/ changed shipping to express maybe thats why?
Mine is standard shipping. And I’m in Sydney. I assume it’s coming from Sydney DC
Didn't receive an update/email previously but status has changed to 'Preparing shipment'
Amazon haven't charged me yet for my PS5 and it's "Arriving tomorrow by 8 PM"
Express delivery (Home only)
Pending transaction on Zip
Have had funds deducted from Zip but nothing further. I also paid an extra $7 for priority delivery so we’ll see if that was wasted money or not.
I also preordered Assassin’s Creed Valhalla and Demon’s Souls. Both of those still show as arriving tomorrow on the website, but I’m yet to be charged for them. Tempted to cancel and just buy them from JB, it only comes to an extra $10 and Amazon have been sloppy with preordered games arriving on day of release in the past..
Don’t think I’ll be preordering with Amazon again given these expected delays. Would rather go and pick up myself from a store.
