    Yes and No. Best Buy had one where their elite members (whatever that new $100/yr one is called) got dibs. Think Walmart with their Walmart+ members did the same. Looks like Sony has signups.

    As for walk in store hoping to find one, still pretty hard unless you know what day shipments drop.

    The local news I listen to over the radio during my commute this morning specially talked about the lack of PS5 availability for the average person when reporting on the ongoing shipping delays, which was also a story talking about scalpers with online bots and their auctions afterwards. One person they interviewed mentioned the cheapest he saw one for online currently was around $950.

    Super random but as I was leaving the mall some guy came up to me asking if I was looking for a PS5. I said I'm good (I don't feel like getting robbed atleast not tonight lol) and he said $500 and I said I'm ok then he said $450 and I just walked away then $420.! as I lol, Yea that sounds totally legit walking back with some stranger to his car to get a PS5.

    As I took off I thought to myself,man I genuinely would feel bad if I see some shit on the news about ppl getting robbed so I waved down Security and told him about what just happen and hopefully he looks into it but wouldn't surprise me if he just brushed it off and moved on with his night.

    Signed up the day after you posted. Got the email invite Tues and just placed my order a few minutes ago. Just picked up the console, no extras. Waited 40mins in the queue.

    Thanks. So much easier to get/find one.

    Too bad MS doesnt do it this way.

    ...

    Also read Best Buy had their drop today too. And it wasn't just for SuperTech (whatever its called) members.

    It's sad that I have yet to see a single PS5 in the store and yet, I see at least one to two X-Box's weekly at Target.

    Bonehead moment...

    Logged in to my PS5. Bought PS Plus. Wondered why my PS4 library wasnt showing up.

    Booted up the PS4...checked PS Plus but says I need to buy it. Did some searching and noticed my username is different. More searching found it also uses another email.


    So now I have two accounts. Not sure why the one I used for my PS5 was even made (it's also the one that my PS App uses). It literally doesnt have anything to it before getting the PS5. The PS4 account has all my DLs/etc.

    All I could do was connect my PS4 account to my PS5 system. At least now it shows all my PS4 stuff. :/

    Sigh, I saw X-Boxes at every Target I went to today but not a single PS5.

    Oddly, there seem to be a whole bunch of PS5s near me, for the first time ever.
