          Don't encourage the scalpers. Cancel on him/her.

          Probably be cheaper if you signed onto two Vodafone services and ask for the PS5 disc on a payment plan.

          $1200 for Digital? Yikes.

      Hand in your Ozbargain badge immediately at the front desk

      •  

        Haha

    Just got one from Gamesmen. Had to select bank transfer. Confirmation received.

    Guess I got lucky people were trying for 2 hours - I got in and out (with lots of refreshing) in about 20 minutes

    •  

      what! Their website are shit I bought Xbox x from them though.

      •  

        Yeah website is pretty bad at the moment due to traffic but it can still be done

        •  

          I gave up. good work mate, is this for yourself? I still got heaps of that thing - 'AC' haha

          •  

            @qzcbmo: Yeah for me. Xmas present. Wasn't planning on getting a PS5 this year but hype has got me

              @cyrax83: I was the same. Didn't even try to preorder initially as I was planning to wait. But then I started getting FOMO haha. Got lucky today though.

    •  

      Amazon is the best, that's why they are global. heaps price errors and really easy to track stock

      •  

        That's why Bezos is on the way to becoming a trillionaire, they know what people want.

  •  

    just went through on The Gamesmen!

    •  

      do you wait the item to put into cart?

    •  

      Was yours stuck trying to add to cart or another stage?

      Mines been trying to add to cart for about 4 hours now.

      •  

        Yeah took ages and lots of F5 to get into the cart and then when it went to the next page I copied the URL and kept refreshing.. same with the step after that.. took 2 hours to get the damn thing.

  •  

    if anyone you can physically get to the South Sydney store(gamesmen) by 10am on this Friday (you’ll probably want to get there earlier because, you know, lines).

    I copied this text from an article I just read.

  •  

    Catch was in stock but sold out in sec…

    •  

      i can image they need you to be members?

  •  

    Gamesmen PS5 console link is down now.. "Oh no! You found a Dead Link!"

    if anyone resell the one you got from gamesmen, please make sure price it over $2000 because you deserve it! SERIOUSLY

    •  

      hahaha

  •  

    managed to get one through the gamesmen at 1:20pm adelaide time. required me to turn off all images in chrome and stop the page fully loading before cloudfare kicked me out. was also able to pay via paypal.

    •  

      looks like last one bought by Amanda. Good job Amanda!

    •  

      I managed to grab one too but had to go for bank transfer. Didn't think of disabling images or anything. Well done.

      Isn't Adelaide just launching the PS4?

    Amazon just charged my card for the ps5, I assume that means its practically confirmed. ETA 16-24 Nov.

    Still waiting for JB confirmation email

    •  

      Same. Paid with Apple

      •  

        Well obviously you’re not gonna get one. Fruit is not a form of payment

    •  

      try to look at your junk mail box, I was waiting for hours and at the end found it there

  •  

    Just got a confirmation email from jb

    •  

      What time did your order go through? I'm still waiting ordered mine around 1130ish.

      •  

        i ordered mine just after 11 and still got nothing.

        •  

          I just got mine as well from JB, it should come through soon

        •  

          Same, ordered 11ish, still nothing yet. Mate who ordered 30 minutes after me got his already. Hopefully just that they are slowly working through the orders.

          •  

            @Anvariel: Ordered at around 11.15 from JB. Got the email about 15 minutes later.

    Just managed to get 1 from Harvey Norman.. been checking their site since morning and it's been on and off so keep checking..

    Good Luck

    •  

      hi, what's the link you using for Harvey Norman pls?

      • +2 votes

        it's gone "page not found" but it comes up every now and then - https://www.harveynorman.com.au/playstation-5.html

        I also kept refreshing the console page.. PS5 appears when it comes in stock.. https://www.harveynorman.com.au/games-central/game-consoles/...

        their checkout was broken in the morning as I got to checkout page multiple times but it kept crashing…

        checked randomly few minutes back and whole transaction went through smoothly..

        i'm assuming all these retailers are releasing in batches.. (perhaps to keep traffic alive on their site)

        •  

          Can confirm the above.

          •  

            @oO0Dam0Oo: any idea when they are due… i was lucky to get amazon but its late dec delivery so can always cancel

            • +1 vote

              @khepri: Nah sorry mate no idea due to link being live for only a few seconds.

              User Edit Stock expected December

        •  

          Yep it worked for me

        •  

          Wow, can confirm just ordered using this link. Just after i had given up trying.

        •  

          Thanks mate, got one

    •  

      Legend, i just scored one too

    •  

      bro thankyou so much. I just got one

    •  

      Whaaaat. I think I might have just scored one! Well, I've scored a charge from HN, hopefully that means I've scored a PS5 too. Awesome. Thanks for the heads up! All that refreshing paid off in the end…. I think I've worn the ink off the F5 key!

        download tab reloader for chrome man. It does it automatically at time intervals you set.

        •  

          Nice one, thanks for the tip. Hey how long did you wait for confirmation email? Still nothing… always makes me nervous.

    • +1 vote

      Can confirm that I love you. Been refreshing every link all day at work. Gave up 10m before seeing this.

    •  

      I just got a "we're sorry, your item is on backorder" email. Is that expected, given that it's for a future shipment? Hoping it doesn't mean my backorder is on backorder (i.e. I missed the boat but they'll keep my money!)

    Won't add to cart now at Harvey Norman, I spent too long debating if it is worth the cost + if I really need it right now opps…

      Lol, same here!

      I feel you. I did that this morning on the HN link. Had one final think before checking out and it started crashing from there. If they’re still selling now, don’t give up!

      • +2 votes

        Haha same thing happened to me this morning, but on amazon! I was in the checkout but I looked my bank account first and started thinking if it was worth it… honestly I might just wait until next year when the price drops a little. I just wanted it now because of all the hype and the whole shiny new thing aspect.

    Target just went down for maintenance - might be prepping for the release at 3:30 or 4pm

    Target website down… Has it begun?

  •  

    Looks like the Target links are going live shortly… not coming up as 'page not found' anymore. Pages are loading with the Playstation 5 header but then getting 500 internal server error.

      Don't need to buy as I already picked one up this morning from Amazon but the anticipation is killing me. Lol

    What's the link?

    up in the original post under target

    or here https://www.target.com.au/p/playstation-reg-5-console-digita...

  •  

    I'm getting 500 errors when clicking on the link. Anyone have any luck?

    •  

      Same

    •  

      @ozbargainguy yeh the disc version doesnt seem to be up yet

    •  

      Looks like it's gone back to page not found for me now

  •  

    I can get in, but price is grey and can't be clicked.

    I think maybe it's going Live at 4pm EDST, but the page is just up now.

    Anyone know whether you can cancel/refund the Harvey Norman preorder if you're successful with Target? :D

    I know their T&C's say that: "Please choose carefully as refunds are not normally provided where you have simply changed your mind", however preorders without a specific ETA should still be provided (Due to Christmas presents etc)

    •  

      Just flip it for 1.2k lol. People going to get very desperate next month

      •  

        My only concern is that the listing changed from December 15th to "December", so wouldn't be good if it's not in time for my kid's (and my) Christmas present!

        • +1 vote

          All the stores for this drop probably get their stock at or around the same time. So would be around the 15th

          •  

            @cyrax83: That's what I figured when I bit the bullet (and fully aware the risks), but if there's guarantee before Xmas by Target, then happy family! :) I'll be patient and wait for Gerry to confirm dates, good lesson for the kids :D

            Edit: Just received an email:

            Hi. Your order is currently delayed. It is estimated to be ready within 2 months. You’ll receive an update as soon as possible. Sorry for any inconvenience.

            •  

              @rompastompa: I'd say that's worst case scenario… imo if it's not ready by mid december you can easy cancel then and get your money back

    •  

      what's wrong with garry's stock

  •  

    the activity is promising, has to be up soon

    •  

      If the website is having a spasm even before the links come on, Imagine what's going to happen after they go live!
