    I'm not understanding the Amazon delivery, either option I pick (free or paid) it's still saying 17th Dec

  •  

    My Amazon PS5 is coming next week. Woohoo!!

    •  

      December 17th - 19th

  •  

    Dec 17th same as other people YAY

  •  

    does anyone have any clue about what’s going on with HN? should I still sit here refreshing?

    • +1 vote

      Apparently their website is dead

  •  

    did anyone actually get a nov allocation for the amazon stock?

    •  

      Yea a few did. Check last page

    •  

      Arriving Nov 17 - Nov 24

    •  

      Read previous comments

    •  

      Yes I did Arriving Nov 18 - Nov 25

      I’m also a prime member so get free expedited shipping

    •  

      Arriving Nov 17 - Dec 3 - Probably good news that delivery dates are staggered. Sounds like remnants of previously cancelled pre-orders.

    •  

      its strange, I got Nov 19 - Dec 9 (maybe because I live in VIC?)

      just a speculation though. Happy I was able to nab one nonetheless :)

      •  

        I'm in Vic too but got the later date.. guessing they had some cancellations from the previous pre-orders

    •  

      Arriving:
      Wednesday, November 18

    gg boiis had no chance with amazon. The moment I saw add to cart, it was dead the next second

    FML I was just sitting here the last 18 minutes on the HN site refreshing the "PS5" search. Next time will be refreshing OzBargain. I'll go take a cold shower.

    • +1 vote

      Yeah same. Then I randomly just typed "PS5" into Amazon and saw the buy now option. Tripped out. Then refreshed OzBargain and saw everyone else posting about it. Smashed that buy now button!

      •  

        It makes me feel better to know I wasn't the only OzBargain member so stupid as to think not having a direct link would be pretty much the only chance of getting one locked in. I appreciate your post. I feel better now.

        Gamesmen at 10am, JB at 11am, right?

        •  

          Hahaha yep, don't worry, it happens. I had three tabs on HN, both the direct links to digital and standard edition and the search results (showed 24 items, if 26, they're online).

          Hopefully Gamesmen's website doesn't crash! Good luck with it, JB's probably your best bet!

        • +1 vote

          Yes. Though gamesmen has crashed at the moment.

    Poor Gamesmen's site has been getting hammered since last night, and it's only going to get worse.

  •  

    I managed to get into the select delivery option on Harvey Norman then the website crashed on me :(

  •  

    Anyone used priority shipping over the free expedited before? Wonder if its worth the 7.99?

  •  

    My mistake was not logged into Amazon on the computer…KEPT TELLING ME TO ENTER THIS OBSCURED CODE

  •  

    Good thing Horizon 2 isn't released until next year :) Time to keep waiting.. hopefully save $100 from FB Marketplace by then

    Just snagged one on Amazon AU, i am bloody stoked, it was only a 7-8min window, i was continuously refreshing from 8:55am, can't be happier, delivery 18 Nov-3rd Dec

    •  

      What time exactly did it come in stock for amazon?

      • +1 vote

        it was roughly 9:03 am Vic time

  • +2 votes

    Amazon wouldn't add to cart or buy it now.

    •  

      So frustrating I jumped on at the same time as everyone else and just couldn't get it in my cart or buy now no matter what

      •  

        yeah same. I was logged in, on teh page, before, during and after everyone else was getting them.

  •  

    Harvey Noman hung on putting into cart.

    I got one on Amazon though.

    Dec 18-22.

  •  

    Nov 16-23 for me through Amazon.

  • +3 votes

    both HN and amazon didnt appear for me.. been refreshing non stop :'(

  •  

    Gamesmen sit crashed now

    •  

      Yea was just on it. I don' t think it will be up on time. Best bet for those who did not get it is to refresh the JB HI-FI web-page (Also remember to sign it prior to the sale going live for faster checkout)

      update: it is back on

  •  

    Harvey norman site proabaly be down for awhile. Big W not selling today due to unforeseen circumstances.

  •  

    I had it in my cart at Amazon, but st the final stage of checking out it borked up

  •  

    are they sold out on amazon now? when is target starting?

  •  

    Got one from amazon, expected delivery is December 18

  •  

    I actually wanted the digital one, but out the order in for the disc version. Early delivery date.

    • +1 vote

      Honestly get the disc. It is cheaper for the long run

      •  

        Agreed. For my usage it’s not though, one game purchase per year.

        •  

          You'll be able to get each game per year 20 bucks cheaper than online store most likely so it'll catch up eventually

        •  

          Plus borrowing games from friends

    •  

      Also more resale value down the road.

      EDIT: I don't mean scalping.

      •  

        Tbh might scalp or trade for a digital version

        •  

          There's someone on classifieds wanting a trade IIRC.
          They were willing to pay the difference.

    Snagged one on Amazon 17-22 Dec Delivery.

    I was able to score one from Amazon (Dec 17-22nd) and thank you to the kind folks mentioning it at 9AM

    (RIP Harvey Norman) your page couldn't even exist on time 💦

  •  

    Does anyone know when the new JB stock will be expected to ship? I can’t imagine it will be for Dec 15 considering how sold out they claimed to be.

    •  

      I'm friend with the store manager at my local Jb. Apparently, will be shipped between 9th to 19th December

    Woo Hoo !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Got one on Amazon and will have it Nov 23rd !!!!!!!!!!!

  •  

    Now I can order spider man, souls and godfall.

    And need to work out the best headset that will pair and work with both xbox series x and ps5…

  •  

    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.

  •  

    Wouldn't bother with Gamesmen at 10am. The site is guaranteed not to work if it's already struggling now.

  •  

    I was pre logged into Amazon and was hitting refresh on Amazon from just before 9 hoping people would be trying HN. Still missed out. It would appear for me, but when I clicked add to cart, the cart would pop up and it would be empty. If I selected an extra an extra controller to get at the same time, that would appear in the cart but not the console.

  •  
    •  

      Sorry, we are down for maintenance. We will be back online shortly.

    •  

      got a working link for digital?

  •  

    HN was back up for about 10 seconds until the site crashed again.

  •  

    HN back up

    Amazon, you've screwed me over! :(

      Dude it was up for like 4-7 minutes, I refreshed once at like 1 or 2 minutes pass 9 and the order page appeared, added to my cart, checked out and got confirmation email with delivery date. It actually wasn’t that hard if you were prepared.

  •  

    Damn! I keep forgetting about stupid Queensland time!

  •  

    4.200 online at gamesmen site lol

    •  

      Seriously??

  •  

    Guys who didn’t get one, go here and follow the links, harvey norman one works from link in here https://press-start.com.au/news/playstation/2020/11/12/heres...

    •  

      that's the one we are using but can't add to cart.

  •  

    Are you guys picking delivery or pickup for harvery norman?

  •  

    Ive added to my cart in HV but it wont load checkout page

  •  

    Got mine on Amazon, arrives mid December.

  •  

    Something is off with Amazon's delivery ETA, from people's post here it appears to be random? are you all choosing free delivery, or expedited? It wouldn't surprise me if all get an email to say delivery is all for Dec. As for me I got ETA Dec 17-22

    •  

      I'm assuming those who ordered earlier have an earlier ETA.

    •  

      mine was default to expedited delivery, Nov 17-24

    • +1 vote

      Amazon likely had a small launch day allocation of stock that they'll ship in the coming days, and the rest are for the December allocation that most other retail are collecting orders for today.

      •  

        Got my order in 9:01am, but at least I got a pre-order in :)

    •  

      It’s based on when you order, they’re obviously allocating delivery dates on a first come first serve basis so the earlier orders will get an earlier delivery date based on when their stock allocation comes in.

      There’s nothing “off” about it, it’s actually the smart way to do it

      • +1 vote

        I got a November date but didn't order mine until like 9:05am

        •  

          This proves my point, it'll be interesting if Amazon will shift allocation of shipments around based on expedited delivery vs free delivery.
          Thank you for posting this comment
