Just draw dropping ****. Demon Souls being a launch title might be enough to get me to buy one of these.

Just in case any of y’all are unaware, PS5 preorders begin tomorrow and you might even be able to get lucky and find a place to preorder tonight.

Definitely hoping there’s enough around for me to get one preordered.

Pre orders have been available at Wal-Mart today but it looks like they're out of stock as of now.

...and they've sold out. I had one in my cart and had to run to grab my target red card to confirm my account information, and it failed to submit the preorder.

Oh well. I wasn't super motivated to get it at launch, anyway.

Honestly **** however this went down. They said it would go live tomorow, so I wasn't checking, and now every retailer is sold out because it went live an hour ago.

Like I know this very obviously is a first world problem, and it's not that big of a deal, but damnit if it isn't frustrating. Video games have gotten me through the pandemic and I wanted to get a PS5 locked down. Hoping some inventory still opens up tomorrow...

I got mine at Target. Kept giving me an error when I tried to check out but I hit submit like 10 times and it finally went through

When was this? I got as far as getting one in my cart, but can't proceed to check out.

45 minutes ago.

I just got an email 10 minutes ago that Best Buy is live as well

The backwards compatibility of these machines makes it almost a certainty that I'll be picking up the disk drive versions of both.

Best Buy is where I'm struggling. I signed up for alerts months ago - they prompted me to as an Elite member, in fact - but the email came after everything was sold out. Which, I assume, is why I can't proceed with my cart.

Damn that sucks.

I’ve never bought at release before. Once these are sold out, is that it? Or will more become available between now and November?

Nintendo is the only console manufacturer than I've ever recalled having inventory issues.

Do you know if that's the case with digital titles, too? Like those I've purchased for my PS4?

I actually haven't ever bought a console at launch either, so I have no idea :lol:

I think I got a PS4 maybe a year later. I was just a few years out of college when it came out and I had to allocate my money elsewhere. Before that I was either broke or a kid, lol.

I'm not sure but God I hope so.

What I'm gonna try and do in the next couple months is accumulate used physical versions of a whole lotta games because they're all generally dirt ass cheap.

Yeah, I don't see a technological reason why I shouldn't be able to play those downloads and keep the save data, unless they just want to **** over a bunch of people.

Haven't had any luck with pre-ordering from any of the sites. I've gotten close but no cigar.

Every console claims you should pre-order them but I've walked into Target on Hwy100 & National at 8am for like the last 4 releases and got one on launch day.
