Re: Next Gen Preorders

Hate to say that you probably didn't get it. No confirmation means no guarantees. I made it to the confirmation page and sat for over an hour and nothing ever went through. Kind of frustrated at the process since I wasted 3 hours with nothing to show for it.

Re: PS5 in store preorder

@doctorwho39 has pretty much the best possible advice.  As suggested keep checking the status and when it changes to Pre-Order then go for it.

 

PS3 release it was hard to get one for many months. 

PS4 I walked into a store and grabbed on off the shelf on release day without a pre-order

 

PS5 I expect much the same as PS4.

 

However, I am not certain how all stores are doing it right now. But my store when I walk up to the door they ask if I need to talk to an associate.  If I say yes they will get on for me. I did it just a few weeks ago and they handled me for the entire purchase.  You should be able to pre-order in the store.

Re: PlayStation 5 Preorder

Are you sure you were ordering it from Best Buy?

 

Their web site does not appear to have opened pre-orders yet.

 

I would wait a month or 2 until it is official on their site.

Re: PlayStation 5 Preorder

Interesting. 

 

I know Best Buy does NOT want to make the mistake of selling more pre-orders then they are promised units by Sony. 

 

People tend to get irate.

 

It was probably a test authorized by Sony to test the waters

 

But it is curious that you got a text message and it is not in your BB account. 

 

I did read some articles about a PS5 pre-order scams.  But if you logged directly into BB's site rather than clicking a link it should not be a problem.  However, if you do not get an update in your account soon I would suggest changing your password to be safe.

 

I cannot wait to play Horizon Forbidden West.

Re: PlayStation 5 Preorder

I would hope that it wouldn't be a scam seeing as though it came directly from the website and the link directed me to the website. I will just wait to talk to someone who works for the company and can look it up.
