    has anyone managed to get an email from the Good Guys about their 2nd batch? Haven't heard of anyone on here or Whirpool posting that they've secured one from them apart from the first batch

    • +1 vote

      Nobody oddly enough on Whirlpool seems to have an update, normally a number there who work for distributors or the major brands have some kind of update.

      Good guys got 4000 in the first batch. My cousin got one, they got something like 100 per store.

      No second batch that im aware of

    Anyone has any info about Target? Did they ever do the drop?

      I spoke to them this morning. They've sold out and don't really seem to know when more units will come in.

        Lol that’s a bs story, Nothing has been on their site all week, they haven’t even received a shipment and their website hasn’t changed from “releasing soon”

        Not possible they sold any been refreshing every day and nothing changed

    Anyone changed the shipping speed on amazon still showing pending eta? Any solution?

    •  

      Nope! I can’t change delivery now or cancel my order though which could be a positive. But who knows. I wonder how many of us are in the same boat

    • +1 vote

      Dont do anything, some people who had Nov delivery got Dec ETA after they changed the shipping speed.

    •  

      I called them and had my case "escalated" I'm waiting to hear back. Apparently it will take a week to call me

    •  

      Depending on when you purchased, you can expect the shipping details to pop up about three days after they take the funds from you.

      I purchased at 9am on the 12th, and my ETA was 17th to 24th.

      Payment was taken on Tuesday night, and last night my shipping was updated.

      They say that majority of them are coming through Perth, and most updates are done between 6 and 9pm if you live on the Eastern side of Oz.

      Hope that helps

      •  

        My ETA was 18 December.
        Now its date pending

        • +1 vote

          Mine is still 18th Dec.
          No funds taken, no updates. I'm not expecting to get it sooner, as I'd say they are probably waiting for new stock to come in.

          I think some people think they have a pile of PS5's just sitting out the back.
          They can't ship what they don't have.

      Congrats! Make sure you update system fully and update games (especially MM) before you play. There’s plenty bugs and issues that now seem resolved.

    •  

      Nice! AusPost says "Delivery expected Wed 25 - Fri 27 Nov".. Too bad there wasn't a faster shipping option available.

      • +2 votes

        Yea, I thought so too.

        But when you think about it we were lucky enough to squeeze in that 2 minutes window when the order went live when it wasn't supposed to, went through that emotional roller coaster of not knowing if it was a glitch and getting our order cancelled or not, having it shipped literally within 1-2 days receiving it within less than a week.

        Compare that to those who are still scrambling every minute to try and get an order in, or those who still have no idea where their order is even though the pre-ordered back in SEPTEMBER (Some has to wait for december-2021 shipment), I think we got very very lucky.

        I'm still baffled at this whole thing really, very grateful for this turn of event that I had 0 control of (although I furiously refresh the Big W page every 1 minute that day)

        Christmas came early for us I suppose.

        •  

          I totally agree, we were super super lucky. Feeling bad as well for others who still waiting for their order through other retailers.

          •  

            @chauhanmahesh: I am not cancelling my Amazon order yet. Think about the Telstra debacle where they shipped xbox one console to someone who pre-ordered Xbox series X. What if I get a digital edition instead of the disc edition? What if it arrives in a condition that I am not satisfied and I have to return for a refund - are some of my concerns.

            •  

              @smarter_fool: Yep you never know about these things in advance. As I was able to book only this piece my all hope is basically with this order.

              @smarter_fool: Agree, I'm still holding my breath and not celebrating just yet until I have it in my hand

              What if it gets lost in transit? damaged in the process?

              What if I get a toaster instead?

              Can those who have received it confirm it was in fact a Playstation 5?

              •  

                @A7SiiGE66: I will confirm soon don't worry. And if its toaster then its your's :P

                •  

                  @chauhanmahesh: Just curious where are you based, when where did it ship from?

                  Just trying to figure out if we have the same batch and I might get mine today as well.

                  PS. Almost at my 5 comments/day limit so might go silence for another 24 hours. If I do good luck, congrats and enjoy your weekend with your not toaster PS5

                  •  

                    @A7SiiGE66: I am in NSW, western sydney to be precise and this delivery is coming from Hoxton Park which like 25 km from my place………….

                    •  

                      @chauhanmahesh: Ahh makes sense, I'm based in VIC so might be pushing my luck abit to hope for it to come today.

                      Although I've read there's a few people in VIC who received their orders the day after it's been shipped from NSW so fingers crossed.

                        It's in my city now, looks like I might get it delivered today from NSW after all.

                        Wow that was a 1 day transit interstate, considering the state of postings that is amazing. Wonder if I can call and pick it up instead in case they schedule it for next week instead of today.

                        •  

                          @A7SiiGE66: Lucky you! Hoping it arrives in Perth before the current ETA for me.

  • +2 votes

    I received mine at roughly 9am this morning, based in central Sydney. Shipped from Hoxton Park like others. Didn't actually say out for delivery until this morning even though the tracking says it updated last night at 7:17pm to in transit, they might have got AM and PM mixed up on the tracker. In transit shows (7:17PM) up after Booked for Delivery (7:20PM). I received the notification text that it was coming today this morning maybe 30 minutes before delivery.

    Driving home and suddenly got a pickup sms from JB order that was expected Dec 8th. :)))

    •  

      Insert "Don't do that, don't give me hope" Hawkeye meme here. I'll be extra super happy if they do start sending them out for all of us JB December 8thers, though.

    •  

      shipments have arrived earlier than expected

      •  

        On Whirlpool a person who got an early JB order yesterday said that the Counter told them it was due to a cancellation and that the December 8 date still stood for the rest. So I won't get my hopes up too high for those of us who haven't been contacted.

        try your luck because they are getting rid of the duplicates.

        Also I've heard there are alot of the big retails going through there orders and cancelling duplicates.

        This is good because everywhere were it has one per customer and has managed to purchase 2 or more will not get refunded due to not following terms and conditions.

        HaHa scalpers the price you paid…

          Did you mean "will NOW get refunded"? Cos they will def get a refund if they have their order cancelled

            @compacc: not from what I have heard because for
            1.scalping bots are illegal
            2.Breach of terms and conditions of sale limited 1 per customer(household)
            3.scalping is illegal

            Try and take it to department of fair trading, imagine how it would go down.

            Hmm hello I accidentally brought 5 PS5 from a store and breached there terms nd conditions now they won't refund me. lol

            There's a major crack down on scalpers and legality.

            If they do then good luck
            if they don't then bad luck
            ……

            • +4 votes

              @Wayneo: Scalping isn't illegal. Obviously people do what they can do discourage it but so far it isn't against the law (unless you sell the goods from a public place. Like HN can't buy all the PS5s and sell them in store for $2k each).

              Not sure about bots, my knowledge doesn't extend to that.

              If you breach the T&Cs of a transaction then you simply void the transaction. So your money is returned, you don't get the PS5. Otherwise businesses would make a motza. "We decided all these transactions breach our conditions so we cancel them, keep tjr $$ and the goods. Which we can then sell. Or pretend to sell but then void the transaction". Doesn't work that way at all. If people paid a non refundable deposit that's one thing. But this isn't that. Not sure who is feeding you your info but ignore them.

            •  

              @Wayneo: Stop talking out your bum, scalping is not illegal nor are the bots. In case you live under a rock we live in a capitalist society and if you buy something it’s yours to do with what you please.

              There is no crack down on scalpers just a bunch of raging 12 year olds that are throwing their toys out of the cot because they’re not organised enough to get one and like an adult lack patience and want everything now.

              Scalping IS NOT illegal.

              Just fyi I don’t agree to pay more than an item is worth but that!s not a scalpers fault that’s a SUPPLY fault with a high demand product, educate yourself, the real blame should be put on Sony for their lack of supply and underestimating of the market place. Just as a side note their were a bunch of us here the other day when Amazon, JB, Gamesmen etc had them. We were on time no rushing and easy got one. The slow pokes entered the thread a little while after and said “hur dur I missed out when did Amazon have them” lol, like seriously? Then they proceed to complain about scalpers again because they were to slow but a heap of us on here managed to beat the bots? Imagine being organised.

              Lastly stop making stuff up, or please point us all in the direction of where “you heard” these bs rumours lol.

      Nice. I registered a while ago, but didn't get any invitation.
      I've signed up to this though anyway.
      They say they will get the stock by Dec 15. Which seems to be the date everyone is throwing about.

      •  

        It's basically the date when the next shipment comes in. Vodafone and the gamesmen (amongst others) have an agreed number units allocated in that shipment. Not sure how many units the other retailers have been allocated, only time will tell.

      "While stocks last, applications open until stock runs out."

    Looks like the good guys link hasn't been live for a long time, so hopefully a decent chance to grab one.
    Also noted

    Strictly limited to one per customer & one per house hold. If you did not previously register your interest with The Good Guys, and you did not receive an invitation email directly from The Good Guys, you cannot place an order.

    •  

      You can sign up via the link. Whether or not you will make it any further than that is another story.
      I filled out the form anyway.
      If it doesn't go any further I've still got my Amazon order.

    On another note playstations selling Logo is a complete failure

    Well this is a complete lie they could not even meet market demand.

      You seen to forgot that we are living in a pandemic where everyone has to order online and compete with bots. Also the PS5 is not going be rare you know.

    My BigW order just updated on the Aus Post website:

    It's coming today
    Onboard for delivery
    NARANGBA QLD
    Date & time Sat 21 Nov • 7:17am

    :O!

    Excited

    •  

      Same here..was not expecting it to be delivered on Saturday.

      •  

        Same, I knew Aus Post did Saturday deliveries in December, but was unaware they did them in Nov. But glad they do! Now where is my precious… lol

    •  

      Mine is also coming today ‼️‼️ KEEN

  •  

    My disc edition ordered from Amazon at 9.06am AEDT 12th Nov, estimated delivery 18th Nov, charged my card on 16th, and my order actually been shipped yesterday 20th, ETA changed to 27th Friday…

    Well I noticed that many guys here based in VIC or NSW got their orders shipped from Welshpool Warehouse Perth where is only 15mins away from my home,
    however, mine was shipped from Moorebank NSW…Why is that? Whats wrong with you Amazon? Such a waste of time and money!!

    •  

      Welcome to Amazon

    •  

      My order was at 9:07. Original ETA was 18 December.

      Now its ETA pending

      •  

        did you modify the order at all ? (changed payment method or delivery speed)

      •  

        My order was 9:06 too, still showing Dec 18 ETA. Hopefully doesn't change to pending.

        •  

          My one was at around 10am and it is still on 17th of December, haven’t tampered with it since when I placed the order and chose priority delivery

        •  

          Cross fingers for you…
          Seem that Amazon had already pre-sold out the coming wave of Dec 15 but other retailers might be in stock again, could try luck with them on 15th, won't be surprised if grabbing one in hand from like JB or BigW when Amazon still be preparing for shipment…

      •  

        strange, I ordered mine just 2 hours after that and my ETA was (and still says) 18th Dec, haven't touched the shipping options, but I called up Amazon and they said they'd ship it on the 16th Dec for it to arrive on the 18th.

        •  

          Placed my order at 9.06 and refreshed that page at 9.08 was already ETA 15-18 Dec, and refreshed again, all gone
          Very few consoles be able to ship by Nov, most won't be ready until mid Dec

      •  

        My (disc edition) order from 9:07 has been, and remains, due for delivery on the 18th of December.

      •  

        I got an email from them saying they will post it on the 15th. So it looks like its still on track from 18 - 22 December

    •  

      Ordered digital edition 11:01am on the 12th and is due 17th-24th November. Haven’t had card charged yet and no update to shipping at all. Doubting it will make it by 24th…hoping they had their stock right.

      •  

        Ordered on amazon or jb? I ordered on jb and they told me they couldnt resend my conformation email even though they didnt send it the first time.

    yeah, can confirm dont do it haha
