Fuck.

Both Wal-mart (earlier) and Target (a minute ago) let me add to cart and fail at checkout. OOS. Also called the closest Gamestop to me(about 10 min away). 1 pre-order left! I head out as I hung up the phone. Aaaand sold before I got there. Tried 2 other GS stores and nope.

No PS5 for me.

Up at Best Buy, but I think it's OOS

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I called the GameStop nearest me and the manager said they would start taking pre-orders tomorrow at noon when they open. The question is, do I want to go out there and stand for three or four hours, in the rain I might add, in the hopes he's telling the truth? Or if they started tonight, there gone and I would be SOL.

Guess I was lucky to grab one from Wal-Mart. I had no luck with Best Buy

I've been fighting Best Buy's checkout process for...I don't even know how long. We'll see if I can persevere! If not, I still have my Walmart preorder.

Debating on if I should get a 2nd controller now, or wait and hope they stick around at someplace where I have GCs... Hmm...

All of the websites are running like they are giving away millions. This is a huge cluster.

I'm giving up. We have this item you want to pre-order but we can't get you through the process. Forget it.

My last attempt did. So far no cancelation. I'm still skeptical though.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

I just rode up to my local GameStop and they had a sign on the door that says they have 15 PS5s and two Digital ones for pre-order when they open the store at noon. So, only 17 for one store. I don't know if I feel like standing in a three or four hour line or not.

Best Buys site has been broken for almost an hour now. I haven't seen a single person online who has been able to complete the checkout process.

Re: PlayStation 5 - 11/12/20

What did happen with the direct Sony pre-orders? Did anyone get an email for that? It would have had to have been only after the announcement today

Decided to go ahead and get the 2nd controller from Target, and go for the return if I find a better deal. I can't gauge if those will be hard to find at launch or not.

Still trying at BB. What a joke.

The $750 and $900 forced Gamestop bundles are still available. God that company fucking sucks.

It was a unicorn. Never existed except in the minds of the marketing department.
