    It took a minute or two, I literally would have ended up with 2 (unintentionally... not hoarding) if I had more money on my card, wife had quicker hands...

    It'd be nice if everyone else could just stop trying if they aren't already at checkout lol

    Now getting told console isn't available for my chosen option (pickup or delivery).

    So, that answers that carts were definitely not reserved. Mine was in there the moment they went live (about 4 mins before 11)

    Nooo don’t do it. If DS remake wasn’t a launch title I wouldn’t even care

    So how did everyone go?

    I have a 2021 order from EB but just got one through JB at 11:36ish order #JB-54261XX. Friend of mine got one a few minutes later almost 1000 order # higher.

    Wonder how many they had for pre-Xmas stock.

    Same, 2021 through EB and a December 8 unit through JB at 10am AEST/11am AEDT pretty much on the dot (order started 3 minutes prior and successfully placed on the hour)

    When EB confirms pick up date with me I'll come back to this thread for one of you guys to grab. I assume by early next year there will be actual stock coming to shelves though so might not be needed

    I read soemthing like anticipate 6 months before you can go in store and purchase off shelf, rest will be sold via online etc.

    Safe to say AMD is #winning in 2020/2021

    All of their current products are just fucking flying off the shelves faster than they can be made lol...

    Did your order go through immediately when it was listed? What’s your order #?

    Edit: obviously JB is huge and not all orders placed were PS5s! But it’s still interesting to know...
