    Well EB head office responded to my complaint and told me I am in the launch allocation and they will be contacting my store to confirm tomorrow. What a rollercoaster.

    I want to trade in my ps4 pro at EB. But not towards a console, but towards a ps5 controller and ps5 games. What should I expect? Same deals as what was mentioned above?

    Just to put an extra exclamation point in this, Sony have crushed the PS4 backwards compatibility. Digital Foundry were blown away:

    My PS4 is all backed up, wiped and boxed up ready to say goodbye :o

    I just have to go into store and trade it in now. Shame I was a dumbass when pre ordering and assumed it was at my usual store but instead it's at the most inconvenient of the 3 close stores :lol:

    I tried to change it but by the time I got through they were sold out of launch consoles so I just left it. With luck I'll get a chance to go in tomorrow :D

    My biggest regret is that I need to trade it in by Monday for the VIP bonus on the extras as a game I've been dying to play comes out on Tuesday and now I'll have to wait till I get my ps5 on Thursday to play it :cry: ah well xD

    The image I posted above show that the upgrade hardware trade offers are towards upgraded consoles. I don't like your chances, but can't hurt to try I guess. I believe the trade in prices without the trade in bonus are no where near as good and you would be better off selling the console privately.

    Just to be clear. The VIP bonus on games and accessories when traded with a console towards an upgraded console only lasts until the 9th, Sunday, today.

    So do I, not sure what value it has - it's not like you can sell the console with it on there unless you sell your account with it :)

    Ohh you might be right. When it said lasts until the 9th I was assuming that Monday would be the last day! I might have to call EB and confirm :/

    Any guesses at what date PS5 will be on actual store shelves? (I'm assuming November 12 is pre-orders only)

    Yeah very unlikely they will be in stock till next year. I believe EB already has already taken 2021 orders.

    I went into EB today and traded in my PS4 pro, 2x extra controllers, a couple of crappy games, my Xbox One and a controller and I got enough trade in value to fully pay out the remaining balance of my ps5, my pre-order of ultimate Edition miles morales and about $10 on a gift card so I'm pretty pleased with that. I was right the VIP trade deal was still active today which was handy :D

    I really should learn how to read a calendar :)

    Hmm, I should have quoted or spelled it out better.

    And that says.

    And yet the HN site says... [edit: actually only on the digital version, not the disc version]
