      and most of em buy sony consoles :) look at the upvotes. literally double of the xbox if not more. I want to buy it for Spider-man for the 4k60.

      • Keep in mind the demand for the PS5 consoles though, a little bit more leeway with XSX orders

      • I personally bought the Xbox for various reasons but am really amazed by the overall community just the past month regarding consoles. (not the console war discussions though :))

        • If it werent for the exclusives. I wouldve gone xbox too. Their load times. Blazing fast.

      Not really, some of them just want to buy this and resell at higher price.

    Seemed to have succeeded with HN - Took me a while - went through the paypal route - had to refresh the page at each step. Once you get to Paypal - you need to keep refreshing once it goes back to HN - it'll have a token in the URL, then it'll redirect to a success or failure, keep refreshing - I managed to come right with firefox (had chrome and firefox but chrome never allowed me to just refresh and leave it)

      did you select pick up or delivery method? Im stuck there..

    • I have been stuck on the pickup/delivery screen for the past 20 minutes, which option did you select? i just get the waiting wheel no-matter the selection

      • Toggle between delivery and the option below it to get the page retrying without refreshing.

    • refresh even if no 'error has occured' page?

    • Thanks for the note. I've paid with PP and back at the "token" stage with HN. So far I guess about 30 minutes in to the purchase process from the moment it was added and ~50 reloads. Hard to imagine this is going to work….

      • took me about 5 minutes from that point of constant retrying

    • Did you get past the final review your order step after the paypal step?

      • No yet, after PayPal it passed me back to HN. That was at about 10AM, which is 9AM QLD time and it felt like things got worse as perhaps QLD'ers started hitting it because it was "9AM"?

        Oh joy, just go there and it says "Wrong PayPal Express Checkout Token specified. Contact us if you need help", and I'm back to the choosing delivery method and trying to get the green continue button working.

      • been trying to review order for more than 10 mins

    • I think most of these sites are a hit and miss, could be browser based, could be also ISP etc, where your request gets in first, but anyways maybe this is the poormans way of throttling and distributing stock lol to the lucky ones.

    • I cant select pay now even for paypal, it is greyed out!

  • An error has occurred
    Error 20

    I feel like out of all the offerings, the sites that could possibly handle it the best would be from most reliable to least.

    Amazon > BigW/JB > Target > Harvey > Gamesmen

    • good review of aussie most hopeless website.

  • Got one from HN using PayPal

      XeKToReX 46 min agonew

      Also got one @ Amazon, 17-22 December.

      Dunno what time you guys got in to get it in a week or 2, I was pretty quick off the mark and one click buy.

      isn't this you? did you buy two??

      • Yeah, a not-as-tech-savvy friend of mine wanted one too, told him if I can get two, he can have the 2nd.

  • +3

    I've got through to the Gamesmen website like four times - and there is nowhere I can see that you can add a PS5 to your cart or anything. Just a message saying to check online on launch day, which clicks through to the same page I'm already on.

    Useless. I'm packing this in, got better things to do!

  • +3

    Harvey Norman worked for me! Went through inspect element and found the paypal express link, then had to reload a million times but continue the process and the order came through! So happy ahahah

    • Does it have an estimated delivery date?

      • +2

        Na - sadly there is no indication (at least for me)

      • Nope, just an order confirmation.

    • Is the Harvey Norman one PS5 standard only? I've been checking the digital one and never seemed to pop for me.

      • Yeah mine was standard

      • No digitals have popped up yet

      I'm on this screen now. How do I find that paypal link? What keywords do I need to find?

      • Theres a link a few comments down now

    • So you went to https://www.harveynorman.com.au/paypal/express/start/is_cart... directly to avoid getting the green button to have to light up? Or did you find a more funky looking link?

    • did u get to the order confirmation page or got an email confirmation?

  • +1

    Got it in the cart at HN, still no luck checking out.

    • +4

      Hit this once it's in cart:


      Skip the cart completely.

      Also PayPal link, can try this too, this is what worked for me.


      • Cheers, trying now.

      • +1

        when do you use this paypal link step? straight to it after it's in cart or no?

        • Yep, just used the paypal link while it was in cart - had to try 30 times.

          It crashed going from Paypal to harvey Norman though so refreshing that page grrr.

      • Got through to Paypal Checkout! Now redirecting back to harvey norman. Cheers.

        • +1

          Mad! You're gonna have to keep refreshing on the express checkout link for a while ahaha but keep at it!

          • @Shammy111: so after using that paypal link i went to the onestepcheckout link and waiting for it to update the secure payment part. Did i do it wrong? Do I keep refreshing?

        • +1

          keep refreshing that page and sending the referrer info and keep an eye on your email for the paypal confirmation.

          • @XeKToReX: I did this and the money was taken out but when the page redirected it crashed and now it's gone from my cart gg

            • @Sargexxxx: If money was taken out your order has probably been placed, give it 5mins and check for invoice in email

              • @XeKToReX: Nope still nothing. They aren't even answering through chat…

  • HN unable to click place order… GRRR

    HN took $1498 out my account via Paypal. Guess the Paypal express checkout worked and there was 2 in my cart?? XDD

    • -1

      Better call them and cancel one so you don't lose both to limits

    • Mine also had two on paypal but hn only took 750 out of my acc

  • +2

    Woah after a lot of refreshing I got a HN one.

    • How did you get past the review your order step???

    • I was on some onestepcheckout, selected the options, clicked Place Order, but then it kept erroring, so I just kept refreshing, the progress bar was loading every so often then it would error out, and I just refreshed intermittently.

  • I've been sitting there for 45min refreshing every minute and didn't even see PS5 console at all!!!

    • +1

      its in console deals mate. They popped up but goodluck trying to check out.

      Heres the link to it https://www.gamesmen.com.au/playstation-5-console

      • I'm talking about harvey norman

        • then you arent getting it because its already over.

          • @HeyHeyHeyIsItADeal: I know that. Just saying I literally hit refresh every few seconds and the console didn't even show at all. Not sure how people even saw it. And I'm on a computer too.

            • @Agent009: Yeah, same tbh I just gave up after I saw Amazons page up everything loaded faster on there. Probably because they have their AWS.

  • yeh im stuck on harvey norman, made it through to the paypal express place order, but wont go through

    • Keep trying, it worked for me, just have multiple tabs of the express checkout open and refresh them every now and again. If you get to the place order button, continue doing the exact same thing and eventually it could work! Did for me :)

      • Im currently stuck in the onestepcheckout, it wont go through :( kept on refreshing

    • Same here, still stuck on the return to HM from PayPal.

      payment has come out of my paypal though so heres to hoping

      • +2

        i got an invoice in my inbox, no expected delivery date as of yet. Guess it worked lol. been here since 650 am and midnight last night, i guess persistance pays off

  • Had a PS5 Preorder from Amazon, got an email saying delivery expected this week. My payment bounced and they asked me to update the details and they'll try again. I did that and they cancelled my order! now they say I have to wait until it's available again and re-order… guess that means December arrival now? WOW

    • 200% they were all December arrivals.

      • Nah, I pre-order September. The email I got yesterday said that delivery would be between 12-16th November

        • ouch thats gotta sting.

          • @HeyHeyHeyIsItADeal: Customer support just said, sorry we aren't sure why you'll have to order the when the consoles become available again. I'm not ever pre-ordering with Amazon again. Guess there is a lucky chap out there who will get my order now

        • It means you’re not getting anything now if your payment bounced. You need to wait for pre order to go live again to get one.

      • Mine isn’t my confirmation email says November 18-25th.

    • I think lot of people in the US mentioned the same thing, if your payment does not go through they cancel the preorder.

    • I think lot of people in the US mentioned the same thing, if your payment does not go through they cancel the preorder.

      • Yeah, pretty cutthroat, fair enough I guess with the demand. But horrible when your on the receiving end! :(

      lies… 502 errors for the last 3 hours :P

      • haha yeah I spoke too soon, the webpage loaded but got stuck on adding to cart. Damn these bots!

    • I got my best luck to see it on gamesmen web page..

      And guess what..

      Error again.

      • Saw it too and clicked add to cart, but no go after that

        • +1

          we need a guy who can fix error 502.. I would like to contribute $100…

  • +3

    Well I think the last hope for me is JB Hi-Fi. My hopes are low!

    • Best of luck, my dude.

  • I have a preorder with Amazon said was coming Dec 17-22 clicked on change shipping speed and has now updated to 16-30 Nov? Yippee

    Might be worth a shot for others

    • expedited or priorty?

      • +1

        Expediated was the only option (I do have Prime)

        Just checked and my payment has been made to my CC

        so guess it's on the way

        • Did you click confirm, only expedited option for me too, but data isnt changing haha

          • @siraulo23: Yep confirmed got email saying "Successful update of your Amazon.com.au order of "PlayStation 5 Console"

        • Is this the preorder which you today or did you get it earlier?

          I tried changing the Shipping Speed my delivery estimate was Dec 17 to Dec 22, after doing what you suggested it now says Arriving Dec 17.

          So thanks for that. Something is better than nothing.

          • @BuyOrNot: I only ordered this morning @ 9 (wasn't a pre order)

    • I changed it and it went from 2nd dec to 16th Dec 😵
      I changed it back quickly but i think it didnt work

    • I tried that. Changed from 18 Dec to 17 Dec haha. Oh well

    • Mine still says 17 Dec

      • I talked to customer support and they told me the original date was wrong and all the orders wi get changed to the dec date

        I don't believe it but at least i got one so i shoudnt complain 😅

        • I am a little salty that some people got Nov delivery from Amazon and I got Dec but oh well at least I have an order.
