    Just went into my EB to confirm my order and pay it off and they told me they have over 200 PS5 launch day preorders!

    200 doesn't seem like a lot. Biggest launch of the year and they will get about 150k revenue. If profits are 15% that barely covers a part time staff member's salary.

    200 for a small store sounds pretty decent to me. I have no idea were the hell they gonna store them because it’s a tiny store with tiny back storeroom. He said they have about 50 Xbox orders but wasn’t sure what ratio between series x and s. He was pretty happy that Cyberpunk got delayed again because November is gonna be busy enough for them.

    just got a note from jbhifi that’s dual sense charger, camera and pulse headset are delayed to 3 December due to shipping issues.

    luckily headset is the only thing I ordered from JB everything else from EB so hopefully they can still do launch day on charger lol.

    I don't think you will be getting charger day 1...sony has already announced that they have been delayed in AU, So based on that the shipping issue is prior to JB getting it.

    Anyone know if Sony will allow non gaming Bluetooth headphones (XM3 in my case) to connect to the PS5 directly now?

    As my PS4 pro won't allow me to connect them directly, have to go through the tv, but I get the feeling I might miss out on this 3d audio stuff they are advertising if going through the tv.

    I literally just paid off my preorder at EB and they didn’t mention anything to me about a delay with headsets. What games are you guys picking up at launch?

    Thanks for pre-ordering PS5 PULSE 3D WIRELESS HEADSET through JB Hi-Fi Online!

    This is a courtesy message just to let you know unfortunately, we have just been advised that the release date for this product has now been pushed back.

    This item is now set for release December 3rd, 2020. Please note that this date may also be subject to change.

    Please find an official statement from Sony below.

    “Due to unforeseen shipping delays caused by circumstances beyond our control, the Pulse 3D Wireless Headset, DualSense Charging Station and HD Camera will now release on December 3, 2020 across Australia and New Zealand.

    Other peripherals including the DualSense Wireless Controller and Media Remote will continue to launch on the same day as PlayStation 5 - November 12 2020.

    I have console and charger through JB Hifi and, with Camera and Headset through EB (because that’s where I could secure them).

    I have delay messages from both of them, charger, camera and headset delayed until 3 Dec.
    This is definitely a national supply issue, not retailer specific.

    On a positive note I have a pickup time of 0700 launch day for my console

    also keep in mind that any extractors have a very high chance of not supporting hdmi 2.1 - not a problem unless you have a newer tv that has hdmi 2.1 support.
