    looks like that digital version at HN is unavailable now

  •  

    is it safe to say that theres nothing more to expect now? Been a long day

    Did u guys see the statement from jb hifi on their Facebook?

    "Today we experienced unprecedented traffic to our website with thousands of PS5 orders every minute, resulting in our allocation of stock being exhausted before we could fully process all customer orders. We realise that this is disappointing for customers and acknowledge that this is not the sort of customer experience that JB Hi-Fi seeks to provide. PS5 stock is limited and in high demand around the world and while we do not anticipate any additional stock this year, we are working hard to try to secure more. We have no certainty of when this will be available but we will provide updates if and when they become available. We are also reviewing our processes so that we can provide better customer experiences in these situations in the future."

    I'm worried they may cancel the order 🥺

    •  

      why would you be worried. If you got one, you got one. this is addressing people who missed out due to website errors/crashes etc.

    •  

      If you received a confirmation email then you are safe.

        Ahhh I did but I thought the wording “resulting in our allocation of stock being exhausted before we could fully process all customer orders” meant that they might cancel.

        Got an order email, but payment is pending.

          Someone posted a comment on their FB “ I spoke with a representative from their sales line, they said they have been told if you recieved your confirmation email you were successful in purchasing.
          People who were not successful did not recieve a confirmation email, they recieved a cancellation email. Or just weren't able to check out.”

          So it should be all good mate

            @ozvictor: I ordered mine just after 11 but didnt receive a confirmation email :(

    So we’ve been finessed by target

      Did target even open an order or just tease everyone with that greyed out add to cart button?

  •  

    Did Harvey Norman say an estimated delivery date for the digital? My cousin got one from them late this arvo but he reckons there was no estimated date which sounds odd. He probably just missed it.

    •  

      Only got a email saying they are reviewing the order, dunno when they gonna send the confirmation email

      •  

        He got a confirmation email. but no date lol

        I got a date from Amazon.

        and my brother got a date from JB Hi fi

    •  

      I think December is all they provided, no actual date.

    •  

      I actually preordered for their december batch a few weeks ago, still haven't heard anything back from them on a specific date. I had a chat with their online support and they still don't know when in December. Feels dodgy like they'll push it back

  •  

    Crazy prices on ebay! Do you think they are legit?

    •  

      Wait till the Christmas madness

    I bought one from the amazon deal at 9:06, but money still hasn't been pulled from my account yet.. should I be worried?

      they charge when they ship it.

      •  

        Cool thanks for that.

    • +1 vote

      Amazon don't charge you until an item is shipped, Ozb 101

      •  

        I'd normally agree, they didn't ship mine today, but charged my card around 1:06pm AEST.

    •  

      Nope

      Ordered mine on 17th Sept. Charged last night, shipped this evening.

      You got plenty of time.

    •  

      it will be when Amazon ships it, I guess you havent shopped with amazon before?

    •  

      Nah should be fine as they don't charge your account until the item is shipped.

  • +1 vote

    I suspect the units Target were allocated were instead handed over to Catch, considering there's many comments here about Catch having stock for a short time this afternoon.

    •  

      highly doubt it, I reckon Target's IT did a test this arvo and found that it will get fxxked with traffic so they didn't go ahead…

        Could be - they're in the middle of the Click Frenzy promotion (ends tonight), so the last thing they want is their servers going down for the rest of their non-gaming customers while that's on. Maybe they'll upload their ps5 page tomorrow, after that promotion's done.

  •  

    https://clickfrenzystore.com.au/products/playstation-5-digit...
    the click frenzy store has a PS5 digital in stock
    Also has free delivery
    Hurry before its out of stock

    •  

      is digital not as popular as disk version? do you know when is the estimated delivery?

      •  

        disk is more cost conservative in the long run. i.e. you can just buy second hand games instead of paying full price. digital you only have one option, buy from sony.

    •  

      $799…???

  •  

    Amazon just took the money out of my account within the last hour. Odd time for them to take it out as I doubt they're shipping it at 11:30pm and I know it's normally charged as it's shipped…

    •  

      amazon not charging at that moment they phsically shipped it. but yes you are getting a ps 5 next week for sure.

      •  

        Yeah it tells me by 9pm on this Monday. "arriving Monday". Now the money is out of my account I'm not sure if I even wanted it that bad lol. I'm no scalper though, keen to play some games but I'm not sure if I can even afford to buy a game haha.

        I was hoping for big w or target so I could afterpay it, but I'll take a Monday delivery instead.

        When I got home in my apartment building in the elevator on the way up another tenant had his Ps5 parcel going upstairs, was jealous

        •  

          Did you purchase it today or preorder from amazon?

          •  

            @AllanGG: Purchased around 9:05 am in the morning when the big rush was on. I was meant to order earlier but dozed off after my alarm went off lol

            •  

              @nailsforlunch: Did they update your tracking? I ordered mine the same time too and Amazons taken my money but no change in the tracking status.

              •  

                @superhans123: Same as you man. I wouldn't worry as it's the normal Amazon process - you get charged at the start of the shipping process. I would expect they register with Aus Post tonight.

    •  

      Probably them taking it off warehouse shelf and preparing for courier pickup.
      They would operate 24/7 being the distributor they are

    •  

      Amazon took my money yesterday from an order on 17th September, it has not shipped yet and I get a delivery date of 23rd November.

      •  

        Yeah, it looks like day 1 stock for Amazon is stuck between warehouse and being picked up. It could be the fact they are using signature on delivery, which would suggest a different carrier as AusPost don't do a signature on delivery being contactless deliveries.

        My order was yesterday at just past 9am with delivery date of 17-24 November - ie Amazon appeared to have stock at 9am when i ordered, some time between 9:00am and 9:03am, confirmation was at 9:05am via email. I was charged for the item at 1:06pm yesterday but no shipping confirmation yet still.

    •  

      Is it the disc or digital edition?

  •  

    OKAY, no luck for target. Let's call it a day. go to sleep everybody!

  •  

    After looking at eBay/gum tree listing anyone else tempted to sell their ps5?

    • +3 votes

      It's tempting, if I sold it for 1500 which seems simple enough I'd essentially get a free Ps5, but I'm not a scumbag either. I think I'd have to sell it at cost or not at all. $750 profit is not enough for me to be total scum.

      •  

        Its not too hard to play PS4 or another platform for a few more months and buy it again with dough in your pocket .
        If I had the option its a no brainer !
        My bad for being asleep on this one :)

      •  

        I think the people who are lucky to ordered from Amazon and receive it next week can still sell it for $1500, for those arrive in unknown date in December, maybe 1k. Still I feel sorry for those paying double for a console, but unfortunately some people are impatient nowadays

      I don't need the money that bad, and I'm not a shit c$#t.

    isn't this the reason people are gathering here?

  •  

    Amazon took out $0 from my account, like they literally charged $0 as a transaction

    •  

      Yep me too. I'm guessing it's just to check the card is valid. Who knows

      target, big W and sony haven't release any stock since yesterday.

    I just got a mail from HN saying "Your order is currently delayed. You’ll receive an update as soon as possible. Sorry for any inconvenience". They also have a tick for "Backorder". What does that mean?

      I think you answered yourself

    •  

      Just read what you wrote, should make sense…

    •  

      Just got the same email. I'm guessing mid-december

      •  

        did you get cancelled ones?

        •  

          Nah

        •  

          did you?

          •  

            @bigchunguss: yep, placed very late yesterday and got cancelled

            •  

              @qzcbmo: did you get a order confirmation email though?

              •  

                @bigchunguss: no, said being reviewed…

                •  

                  @qzcbmo: Did you get an email telling you order has been cancelled ? I ordered at around 5pm yesterday and only got email saying order is bein reviewed and nothing for today

                  •  

                    @ozvictor: yes I did, the credit memo and paypal refund email has came already. I think you are safe, because I ordered it around 5:30pm.

                  •  

                    @ozvictor: I got an email saying it was being reviewed, but the order confirmation came in about 2 hours ago

    •  

      classic HN being HN. They'll hold your money for as long as possible and not provide an estimated delivery date. They also have the worst customer support options available. No call centre - only live chat, but worst thing is they take hours to respond to their live chat.

    •  

      HN always send this message out when the item isn't available for immediate delivery.

      My son got the same message last week when he preordered the new Call of Duty. I wouldn't worry about it.

    So Target and Big W are the only ones left?
    Does anyone think another drop from Sony, Amazon or anyone else closer to Christmas is on the cards?

  •  

    I got a digital PS5 from Amazon yesterday (around 11am) but still hasn't been shipped and payment still hasn't come out.
    Anyone else in the same boat?

    •  

      yep same here

      •  

        I ordered on 17th September, payment taken yesterday, has not shipped and I have a delivery date of 23rd.

      You ordered yesterday and it hasn't shipped? :-/

      •  

        I reckon the those Amazon digital ones are acutally cancelled orders from 17 SEP so they will turn up straightaway.

    •  

      lol relax buddy..you ordered yesterday what's your expected shipping?

      they don't charge you until it's shipped

    i rang them and confirmed. mine says 17th-20th del

      Mine says 18 to 23rd Nov

    •  

      Who is them?

      •  

        See a few lines above. Amazon. I spoke to them and they said I will "definitely" have it by the 23rd.

  •  

    yeah amazon, but call centre in Phil to be honest i don't think they have any idea.

  •  

    Target changed there caption from

    "Releasing on 12th November"

    to

    "Releasing soon"

    I'm still dying for one :/ dk if they gonna jump on the train but who knows

        Mine is supposed to arrive on 17th of December from Amazon. Kinda sad that it is that late but happy when I look at the demand and it comes in time for Christmas which is when it will spike for demand even more when people look at getting last minute presents
