View Full Version : Anybody Else Preorder PS2 From EBWorld
10-24-00, 11:06 AM
I preordered 2 PS2's from EBWorld back in May. I'm still not sure if I'll be getting 1 or 2 or none come Thursday. Anybody have any word on their orders of PS2.

First of all, WTF? Which part of "One unit per person" did you not understand? People that do that really piss me off... (unless it's a gift, then it's ok)
Anyway, I ordered one in late June, and will be getting mine "Sometime before Dec. 1"
Gee, just think, if everyone followed the rules, and only ordered ONE, me (and a lot of other people) might be getting ours this week, too! http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/mad.gif

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think there was any limit back in May. Obviously, if they accepted the guy's order for 2 systems, they were allowing people to order more than 1 at the time.
I was considering ordering a couple extra systems myself back then (to sell on ebay), but decided not to because I foolishly thought Sony had their act together and would have plenty of systems available.
I ordered a PS2 & a game from ebworld.com back on June 16th, so I may or may not get a system this week (I hear that the pre-order "cut-off" for getting a system at launch was June 15th). So I'll probably hit a few stores on the way to work & at lunch on Thursday to see what the retail availability is.

I think the 1 order per customer has been in effect since they started taking pre-orders.
And, it is quite easy to get around that. Use a different name, address, and credit card, and you have youself another order. Oh well, no use crying over spilt milk. And I am not saying that is what Lebowski did, either. He could have ordred one as a gift... I just felt like saying "WTF" and finally getting to use a http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/mad.gif. http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/smile.gif

Well just called a CSR at ebworld and was told that my order shipped out today and will be arriving on the 26th. WHOOO HOOO!

Well guys, I will still be playing my Atari.

For the record I placed my order back in May. When I placed the order there were no limits to the number of consules. I received an email notifying me that they were knocking my order down to one so that they can fill as many orders as possible. Anyways I still don't know if they shipped my order. The website says processing still. For those who say their's has been shipped does it state that on the website under my order? csteak101, does it say shipped on your my order page?

Looks like I got lucky. Even though my pre-order date was 6/16, my credit card was charged yesterday by ebworld.com, so I suspect that a system will soon be on its way to me. I tried calling ebworld to verify, but (no surprise) all I get is a busy signal. http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Does anybody know what shipping method they are using on the Playstation 2's? Overnight delivery would be nice!

When did you order yours?
10-25-00, 03:42 PM
They sent them all out via 2-day delivery.
Meaning....some might not get it til Friday. I fear that's what's gonna happen with mine..... oh well. Wouldn't have had time Thursday night to play with it much anyways. My only worry is the 3 hours I'm away at class on Friday....I better not "miss delivery" during that time. http://talk.dvdtalk.com/ubb/mad.gif

I ordered in May right before they officially put it on their page. Good news.... it came today via FedEx. Oh and it says "Processing" on the order status page.

I hope not -- I paid for overnight delivery.

Okay, let me clarify.
They sent via 2-day UNLESS you paid for overnight.
