          • @Sargexxxx: Guess we have no chance then………………..

          • @Sargexxxx: this will be because it was a pre-order and their system would know its release date is today therefore it changed to add to cart… just there is no stock in the backend yet

    Seems like oos everywhere

      They haven't gone live yet read the times

  • Anyone got lucky with Amazon? Tried around midnight, but no dice.

    • Nope, refreshed like crazy, no luck

  • do note the delivery times, harvey norman for example states

    PS5 launches tomorrow! Please remember, the PS5 console will be available to order online only tomorrow morning, stock is expected to arrive by December 15th. PS5 Consoles will not be available for in-store purchase tomorrow, please continue to check back online for further updates.

  • Due to unforeseen circumstances we will not be able to offer customers additional PlayStation 5 console pre-orders on the 12th November. Please keep your eye on Bigw.com for further information in the coming weeks.

    This is what I see on BigW website!

    Hope that isn't going to apply everywhere.

    • just saw that msg but refreshed it and it's gone now?? edit: it's gone from the product page for me, but on their regular ps5 page they have put: 'PlayStation 5 Consoles will not be available for in-store or online purchases.
      Please continue to check back online for further updates'

    Sony looks sold out already. They dropped early

    • How early?

      • It was between 7:52 and 7:55, by my experience just then

    • +3

      They didnt drop at all.

    • +3

      I don’t think they did. I’ve been checking in intervals since about 720a

      • +2

        I check at 1,3,4,6,7 and they were no stocks available. And when I went into store yesterday at my local Sony. Was advices there are no stock available for sale today.

        • You don't sleep?

          • +2

            @TightAssDrake: Had premonition that I missed out today at all the retailers, so kept on waking up and checking all the sites

        • Well I was right. Couldn’t score one from Harvey Norman. Just couldn’t check out successfully. No stock at Target and BigW. Gamesmen site was dead. JB wouldn’t let me check out at all.

          So what’s new

    • Think it's AEST not AEDT, so hopefully it'll drop in an hour

      • but they changed the msg on the page to 'ps5 pre-orders have finished' though. just before 8:00am AEDT.

        • idk, just trying to be optimistic. I was refreshing constantly from about 7:45 till 8:05, it changed straight to that message at 7:55. If it did sell out, then nobody here has a chance, they're all being taken by bots for scalping… rip.

    • +2

      Definitely dont think they dropped at all.

  • Amazon is now cancelling some pre orders saying they were fraudulent. What the f!

    • Likely people who tried to order more than 1.

      • My mate only ordered 1 . He is gutted. Complained and they are looking into it.

    • +1

      Haha. Good on them. Serves the scalpers right.

    • Really? I thought they would cancel it just at the time after your placed the order if they think it’s doggy

    BigW just updated their website.

    “ Due to unforeseen circumstances we will not be able to offer customers additional PlayStation 5 console pre-orders on the 12th November. Please keep your eye on Bigw.com for further information in the coming weeks”


  • Anyone have any idea when Amazon will drop?

  • I have been trying since 9pm w.a time and I have seen no information or anything dropping, big w have said the same thing since yesterday the only thing that has changed is the pre order to add to cart but it has always been grey. so you couldn't click anything.

  • Did anyone even manage to score a Sony Store one? Preorders 'finished' in legit a second

    • When did they start? It said that yesterday as well, didn't it?

      • It said something in the lines of 'first allocation sold out' yesterday. So this is a new message which updated around 7:55am, claiming all stock have now finished

      • do you think sony would deliver faster than other retailers?

        • Most likely since they only sold out on launch day shipment

    • Preorders on Sony were around for over an hour.

      • I missed the Sony preorder but I got one from Amazon.

  • Have JB said when theres will likely ship by? HN are saying Dec 15th?

    • +3

      Get one and think about that later.

  • Sony store is saying 'Pre-orders for PlayStation 5 at Sony Online and in Sony Stores have now finished.'

    • Pretty sure they would have allocated them all to vodafone due to their new partnership, same as Telstra holding 70% of AU Xbox Series X stock due to their partnership with Microsoft.

      • *cries in Optus

    By announcing the times like this, they are just inviting scalpers with bots. This will be a nightmare. If the bots come out for $99 AirPods, they are coming out for PS5.

    • might be good that amazon is random then, possibly why they did this

      • bots can auto refresh…

  • -3

    Now HN saying pre-orders have finished? What's going on. "You just missed it"

    • +1

      nothing they havent gone up yet.

      • No they changed the page and then removed the disc based edition.

    • think they go up at 9.

  • what time does target go live?

    • +2

      Not 8.47am AEDT

      • I am in w.a so I have to take 3 hours off the times.

    Harvey Norman page just went down to update - let it begin

  • harvey norman's ps5 page is gone??

    • Appears so…

  • Harvey Norman link is now removed

  • link from HN just got done

  • HN site isnt displaying anything https://www.harveynorman.com.au/playstation-5.html

  • FFS

  • Lol, retailers dropping like flies

  • Digital only by the looks of it for HN :(

  • :( lol

  • Why HN gotta play us like that

    • IKR wtf its 9am and the link and page for it is down. wtf.

  • +1

    All Normans are now dead to me!

  • +2

    Suspect that these retailers maybe didn't have any allocation and just wanted to grab pre-orders anyway, and Sony may have pulled them up on it.

    Otherwise can't understand why things would change literally overnight

  • Amazon link went up. Although still no stock. :(

  • So…nothing?

  • +3

    It's an hour early, and Gamesmen's website is already falling over

  • None of the links working…

  • HN page not found now "Something's gone wrong"

  • +7

    WTF is wrong with these retailers?! if they don't get stock/preorders quota allocated why create the hype and then have your website all f*d up :D

  • never even had a chance with bots

    • +5

      nothing to compete with, they removed the product pages at 8:55am

    • never even had a chance when HN never put it up*

  • We have all been lied to.

  • Seems like there was no cake afterall…

  • +2

    AMAZON UP!!!!

    • Yep as long as you searched again HN gone now too.

  • This is bullshit, I have hungry bugs that need some snax ASAP!

  • +4

    Amazon up

    • thanks man i got one from your ocmment! stoked!

  • +1

    grabbed from amazon. gave up on others, stock seems to be there?

    1 item will be shipped to [address]
    Estimated delivery: Nov 17 - Nov 24

    • WTY, you are lucky or you were fast.

      My Estimated delivery: Dec 17 - Dec 22

      • I was pretty quick on the click buy, was live maybe 30s or 1m before i hit buy, i didnt look at delivery options, just went buy (can always change those details post purchase i figured).

        I'm rural as well, so they throw on an extra day for deliveries to me.

    OMG. AMazon is up. Just got one

    • You are a deadset legend!!!! Thanks for letting us know mate, as I was able to get one. Just got the console and another controller, as I was so worried about missing out. Just need to see if I can find the headset.
