when i preordered my PS5 from amazon, i received an email couple of weeks later or a month later saying my order might be delayed.

Thankfully I was able to secure another 3 PS5 preorders along with my Xbox preorder.

As long as I get 2 ( one for collecting purposes on the first firmware version possible and homebrew one day I hope, the other to play with of course.

Not sure why I bought Xbox Series X. i already have a 2080ti. just... like consoles I guess. lol

Hello Canadian NeoGafers ! I didn’t had the chance to preorder a PS5 recently but and I’m looking forward to buy one on launch day obviously online. In which store you would recommend me to purchase one ( BestBuy, Walmart, La Source or Amazon )? Which one is shipping faster ?

Thanks.

Well you're completely lost as this thread is about XBOX not PS5.

Bestbuy is trending on Canadian twitter right now over the Xbox/ps5 shitshow here lol

Not sure about Best Buy, but EB Games charged my card in full on Sunday, websupport told me the thing would be SHIPPED out on Nov 9th, and NOTHING happened today. I've never been charged(It's not a "HOLD" it's the full CHARGE) for something and then it not ship either THAT DAY or the DAY AFTER.

Bestbuy has dropped the Xbox off to Canada post but Canada post is not giving me an estimate.

God save your console now that it’s in the hands of Canada Post. Might as well backorder a new one now since you won’t be seeing that console till 2021.

Last year, I actually had a Christmas present delivered (by those buffoons) four months later in April.

Eastern Ontario here.

I have one coming from Best Buy for myself. Shipped yesterday and as of 3am it's on its way to my city. Date says the 12th, but I'm semi optimistic It may show up today.

Also have another coming from Amazon for my Brother In-Law. Got tracking late last night. Currently at the fulfillment center about 2-3 hrs from me with a date of the 13th, but who knows. Amazon has over estimated dates before and I've gotten stuff alot earlier then they intended so. We shall see!

I think it’s fair to post both Xbox and PlayStation for all Canadians as we get lost in the US thread.
Amazon charged me for my Xbox . Coming Friday. Was hoping for sooner but it seems it’s not the case

but no tracking number provided still

Microsoft Store via Fedex (shipped Saturday from Kentucky, US): Arriving Tomorrow (Nov 11)
BestBuy via Canada Post (shipped today from Ontario): Arriving Thursday (Nov 12)
Walmart via UPS (shipped today from Ontario): Arriving Today

Weird, I've had hundreds of parcels over the years delivered by Canada Post, never one has been damaged or lost.

My Best Buy order says it’s going to be here on the 17th.

MS order landed at the airport an hour away from me, an hour ago and still says the 13th as the delivery date.

Mine is showing as in Fed-Ex Vancouver depot now, which is 400km away from me, so yeh I won't have mine till Thursday as they won't deliver on Remembrance Day, unless there's a super cool Fed-Ex driver who wants to make sure everyone gets their launch day consoles...doubtful.

I would imagine a lot of you in Ontario should get yours today (from Walmart anyway)? Looks like they shipped out from Ontario last Thursday but for whatever reason hasn’t moved much en route to BC. Mine is still in Ontario today.

I originally thought the Series S would be this generation's "Tard pack". Nope. Those little shits are flying off of shelves too.

Just received mine here in the GTA. Walmart came through originally said to arrive on the 13th but got notification last night about it being shipped. Don't know why i doubt them to deliver on time, they've come through for me before unlike amazon.

Yeh, you would have thought Microsoft would have been able to figure that out too, I'm just happy now I'm not one of the unlucky bastards who got told not to expect their console till Dec 31st.

Out of stock everywhere.

I'm at the edge of forcing my kids go mining rare mineral for Xbox components and sending my girl to the sweat shop.

I can't take anymore of this lack of modern slavery and insufficient planet.

Preordered through Best Buy back in September. Yesterday the ETA was 22 Nov (wtf), today it's supposedly in transit from Mississauga to Ottawa and the arrival time was been updated to 15 Nov.

The dream is to wakeup tomorrow and see it's out for delivery, but at this point I'll be happy just to get it before the weekend. Canada Post is always such a pain in the ass.

You’d be super pissed in my shoes then. Shipping label created last Thursday. Still in the sorting facility today in Ontario. Here I am waiting impatiently over on the west coast. F*** Loomis (Ground) and Walmart for using them. Mine’s scheduled to arrive next Monday.

That happened to a friend of mine with the 1X. Preordered from Walmart and got it a week and a half late. They suck.
