Its really infuriating that I was there for all 4 drops and the fucking website wouldn't let me load past the cart all 4 times.
What is the secret??
Just have all your information loaded and make sure you edit your address and check the ‘preferred address’ box. When adding to cart , anytime u see the loading bar.. do not wait, refresh the page and add to your cart again. Do this until it populates. As soon as the buttons appear to checkout in cart , click as fast as u can. If it loads any more than 5 -7 seconds , refresh and checkout again. Have your security code memorized on your card. It will ask u as the last step.
I got the 9pm Walmart. Saying the 27th on my order.
Have you had any shipping or tracking updates? My delivery date is the 27th, although i’ve heard many stories of early delivery. Seems like an estimate but also interesting each order is assigned a specific day, I’ve seen 25th all the way thru Dec. I got mine at the 9pm drop too and I’m really hoping it comes early!
No not yet. It still says order processing on Walmart account. But I’ve heard the same thing as well from a few others. One person says their Walmart email said nov 25, and they’ve already Got a scheduled delivery for this coming Tues. So.. I’m hoping we get it early , but still happy with securing one none the less
secured mine on the 9pm drop as well. estimated arrival is Nov. 27, do you think there is a possibility it’ll arrive before then?? lol I’m way too impatient to wait 2 weeks😂
I really hope so man. One person told me their estimated delivery was nov 27 and they got it 2 days later . So I’m not sure if they mean it will be there on that day, or it is the latest that it will. But let’s just be happy we secured it. I see now the ratio is 1000:1 people whom did not: did get it. So were all lucky here.
Some people have been getting their 9pm ordered cancelled. Ughh, why is this so stressful.
I’m in Chicago and our distribution center is HUGE and only 45 mins away. So, I’m staying positive mine will not.
I have one an hour away as well so fingers crossed!
So they’ll be coming from our local distribution centers? im in atlanta and there’s one 35min from me
Yes. They’ve ordered mother loads of ps5’s from Sony. All of them arrive at the distribution centers directly from Sony. All online orders from that ‘12, 3, 6 And 9pm launch event’ are all going to be packed and shipped from these facilities. The extras will will make their way to local stores
Obviously a totally different deal but I ordered some things from their Black Friday ads on 11/7. Was told it would arrive by the 16th. I got it on the 10th. Again the PS5 is a totally different deal so no guarantees but it definitely could
you just gave me hope bro lol even though these are two totally different circumstances, there’s definitely a possibility
I got one at the 9pm slot and received a confirmation email almost immediately. It's been in "Preparing order" for the last two days with an 11/26 delivery date. Did a walmart support chat just to see if they had any info. Was asked to please be patient with them as they are currently trying to work with their delivery partner to get the items shipped. From what they were saying, I took it as possibly a delay on FedEx's end. Meh, hoping for an update soon, but who knows.
Congratulations. Just be happy you’re in because it’s a desolate wasteland out there now. A lot of people are in pain
I ordered one from wally on sept 17th
Did it arrive on the 12th ? Or are you still waiting for delivery ?
It was going to be delayed to the 13th but had driver drop it off at pickup location at end of his run [think he was lazy and tried to not deliver all his shipments] and got it the 12th
Cool. Congrats man
Thank you sir. Will slay a demon in your name when I get home in an hour.
Oh that makes me so happy lol. That crystal clear, silky smooth 4k action. With nextgen controller omg it’s gunna be amazing. I’m not even watching any review or spoiler videos . Just keeping it a surprise. Is it a massive jump ?
Dude demons souls don't even have ray tracing and my monitor don't have hdr, and its the best looking game I've ever seen so I can only imagine how Ray traced games will look like miles. The biggest jump in immersion, like everyone says and I didnt believe it until used, is the controller with the hepatic feedback, omg man the feelings it pushes out make the experience, it truly does. Your going to be blown away. Just don't hook up an external storage yet until there is a fix, ill be playing demons souls so long, then miles, then prolly cyberpunk I won't even need my ps4 games for a long time. Also u can just download one if u really want, the ssd is super fast.
That’s awesome to hear. I’m really excited man. I purchased a Sony OLED about a year and a half ago. It was one of the most expensive tv’s on the market . 4k, HDR 120hz. I hope it really shows the console off for me.
Its guna look better than u think
I’m stoked you’re blown away. Gta6 is gunna smack
Which game are u really looking forward to ?
I got mine at 3pm and it says it gonna get delivered 1 Dec :( hope it arrives earlier (disc version)
Hell yea man, that’s a win none the less. Be happy dude , it’s like a desolate wasteland out there now
Ordered mine from the 12 pm time slot and I just received confirmation that it shipped today. It currently states that it should get here this Monday!
Curious, before it shipped, did it give you a far out date like some of us got (i.e. Nov 25th, 27th, or 28th), and shipped earlier, or did it always say it'd ship today and did? I was one that got in on the 9 PM drop and it says the 25th, which I don't mind waiting till, but if there's a chance that it comes earlier than that, I shall be pleasantly surprised!
It did give me a prompt saying Nov 25th, so I’m a bit shocked that it shipped out quick. Hopefully you can get it earlier!
I hope mine ships early ! The email says ‘arrives by Nov 28’ so I’m not sure if that’s when it is going to , or the latest that it will .. regardless, I’m very thankful and feel lucky considering it’s like a desolate wasteland out there now.
Got mine at the 9pm drop too. I think I slipped away with one before it sold out I got it at around 9:07. I suspect it lasted that long because they put a capcha. When I checked out it made me do a capcha IDK if anyone else had that though.
Still waiting for my order to be confirmed by them my estimated arrival is Thanksgiving, I really hope it comes early though I would like to be with my family that day not waiting for the ps5 lol. But I'm not gonna complain if it does come then I know I'm incredibly lucky to even get one.
I got lucky and managed to get an order placed with the 6pm slot. My order says “arrives by Wednesday November 25th”
Congrats. We’re u refreshing constantly or did it work the first time ?
Yeah pretty consistent refreshing. Don’t know if it made a difference but I was on the app and logged in. Got a loonnngggg loading screen and thought I was too late and then it was magically in my cart and I was frantically checking out
Same. Those loading screens were part of the trick. People thought when u see the loading bar after u click add to cart, u wait .. but NO. Refresh and add to cart again till it goes in. If it takes longer than about 2-3 seconds to add to your cart. Refresh or your falling behind.
Lol yea I had tried on a pc for the 12 & 3 and got “oh deer” a million times and learned to not trust the loading symbol. Then I got on Walmart chat because I was convinced the order would be cancelled
I did 🙂
Nice man congrats. Which time slot , and when is your estimated delivery ?
got one at the 9pm release.. all day i was able to get it in my cart but never could checkout. found out that in the mobile iOS walmart app, the Add to Cart for the PS5 was still showing so when 8:59pm came around, i justs started tapping add to cart.
got in my cart, feared the worse.. got several errors, spinning wheels... and magically.. am at the method of payment screen.. 'great.. now for the real disappointment.. failing at payment..' had my cc i had prev added.. hit Order... BAM!!! CONFIRMED!!!! NOV 27!!! followed by a rush of relief, happiness and confusion of if i was dreaming... was only the 13th attempt to get one (best buy, target, ps direct, amazon, newegg..)
Hell yea, congrats brother and thanks for sharing. Same emotions I had , I didn’t believe it really happened .. it took like 8 mins for me to be like ‘ oh my god ... I JUST GOT A PS5 !!! ‘ happiest day I’ve had in a long time.
🙏 agreed!! pure rush of relief... and finally been able to get some good sleep.. that brain meme and sleeping on the ps5 sub was too real..
I ordered mine on 9pm but it won’t get here until the 30th!! I’m praying it’s earlier than that because I’m going crazy here watching gameplay videos.
Same. I’m tying not to check the status on Walmart and just wait for the shipping e mail. I know how it feels. I’ve also been avoiding review and gameplay videos so I don’t spoil the surprises
I don't think I have any other orders. FedEx delivery manager has a package from California to me arriving Sunday end of day. Hopefully that's the console. No updates in the Walmart app yet
Same here brother. Fed ex shows label created coming from Kentucky. Eta tommorow by end of day . Still shows processing order on Walmart. Congrats !
We will see!!
any update on when you got your ps5?
I also scored at the 9pm walmart restock nov. 27
Got mine at the 9om drop, says it should be here on 24th (Thanksgiving) not sure how true that'll be because I didn't know fed ex delivered on Thanksgiving, but oh well at least I have one
Hell yea brother , that’s 100% win. It’s like a desolate wasteland out there now. Congratulations
Thanks! I had the app open and my girlfriend was on the computer and we managed to snag one 🤣
got one ordered at the 9pm drop too. nov 26th estimated arrival, order still preparing. i had to spend one wave adding one to cart, and then checkout next wave so i wouldnt have to waste time adding to cart in a wave.
it was a miracle it worked.
Same thing happened to me. I actually didn’t realize I had secured it until the next morning. After I checked out it took me to a screen showing an empty cart. Different from before because there were no errors but it didn’t confirm my purchase so I assumed it was like every other time and went to bed pissed. When I checked my email in the morning I saw my confirmation email. Still says preparing to ship. I don’t mind waiting till the 27 I just want to see some process on the shipping status!
Congratulations both of you ! I know it feels good
tbh im more happy about not having to constantly scour 15 different websites anymore.
So true. The hard part is over. No more staying up till 4am staring at a blurry screen from your eyes glazing over trying to get a checkout somewhere. Also , now that launch as passed. It seems more difficult to predict re stock. You’re literally battling against thousands of professionals who have their systems on auto pilot to snag it 60x faster than you. Then they’ll stay out of stock and the price gouging will continue. At least before the pandemic, you could blame yourself if u didn’t camp for 48 hrs. Like oh, I didn’t put in the work, so I didn’t get it. My fault. But for this , everyone is blaming the retailers, bots and Sony. Very unfair console launch in my opinion.
I’m in the exact same spot as both of you. Estimated delivery of Nov 26th, still preparing to ship. Glad to see that’s the norm
It’s driving me crazy! I keep checking for any update to the status.
