PS5 Preorder Info: Consoles Sold Out, Some Accessories Available

In the wake of the announcement of the PS5 launch date and price points, the long, tense search for a preorder has begun. Launching November 12 at $500 for the standard console and $400 for the digital edition, the PS5 went up for preorder right after the recent PS5 event, and since then, stock has sold out at all major retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop, and Target.

GameStop had a second wave of PS5 preorders available to preorder on September 25, both online and in stores. Once again, the retailer had a virtual queue. Multiple GameSpot staff members waited in the queue for more than an hour without any success, so online preorders apparently sold out very quickly once again. GameStop issued an update on Twitter confirming that PS5 stock sold out once again. This included a starter bundle that came with Demon’s Souls, Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate

PS5 is Releasing a Week Later in the UK but the Games and Accessories Will Seemingly Arrive Earlier

PS5 might not release until November 19 for those in the UK, but you’ll potentially be able to purchase some items for the next-gen console beforehand.

Even though it’s a pretty major region, Sony won’t be releasing the PS5 in the UK until one week after the console’s November 12 launch date for the United States, Japan, Australia, and a handful of other countries. Despite having to wait seven days longer than some other folks, however, it sounds like the PS5’s accessories will be released the week prior.

Spotted by VGC, UK retail storefront SimplyGames has stated that the release date of the accessories and some games for the PS5 have been pushed forward and will now be hitting store shelves on November 12. This means that if you wanted to pick up items such as a PS5 headset, remote, charging station, or even

One retailer claims that the PlayStation 5’s DualSense controllers will be shipped in the UK ahead of the console itself.

Early PlayStation 5 adopters in the UK will have to wait an extra week after the US, Japan, and other regions but they might receive the DualSense controller ahead of schedule.

According to UK retailer SimplyGames the controller and other accessories, like the HD camera and wireless headset, will be shipped on November 12, the same date that the console will launch in the US, Japan, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and South Korea.

The PlayStation 5 won’t be releasing in the UK until November 19, meaning anyone who’s pre-ordered any of these accessories will have them lying about unable to be used for a whole week.

It should be noted that other retailers, like GAME and Amazon, still

JB Hi-Fi Will Now Let You Use Gift Cards On PS5 And Xbox Series X Pre-Orders, Sort Of

JB Hi-Fi has backflipped on its stance to not accept gift cards on PS5 and Xbox Series X pre-orders. But it’s still complicated.

Originally no gift cards were allowed

On Monday JB Hi-Fi began sending out text messages to customers who had pre-ordered the next gen consoles. This included a note about how gift cards would not be accepted as a form of payment on the remainder of the pre-orders.

“Your spot in the queue for your PS5 Console pre-order is confirmed! We’ll SMS you soon with a link to pay your remaining console balance. Pay by Mastercard, Visa or PayPal. Gift Cards not accepted. More info: https://jbhifi.com.au/2020consoles,” one of the texts read.

This resulted in backlash from customers on social media, claiming the restrictions weren’t disclosed when they originally pre-ordered the consoles. The original pre-order pages for the consoles didn’t mention these restrictions once pre-orders had been closed.

We Asked JB Hi-Fi Why It Won’t Accept Gift Cards For Xbox Series X and PS5 Pre-Orders

This week, JB Hi-Fi began sending out texts to customers who had pre-ordered PS5 and Xbox Series X and Series S consoles. There’s been backlash for a number of reasons, including the revelation that gift cards won’t be an acceptable form of payment.

Other frustrations have included some customers being bumped from launch day delivery due to the sheer volume of orders. There has also been some confusion around when some customers will receive their consoles. However, this has been an issue across a number of online retailers.

The first round of texts from JB Hi-Fi went out on October 5, which was a public holiday in New South Wales.
