Retailer Antonline will have more PS5 bundles available for pre order tomorrow.

For my order, I was charged 10$ shipping, but 0$ tax.

I am aware of antonline’s reviews; however that is from refurbished tech and long response and return times.

Many others are fearful of Antonline, so they will not be partaking in this chance to preorder. It’s a great chance if you missed your opportunity.

I never heard of them. I see they have been around for a while though. I'll pass the link to some friends that are still hoping to snag a PS5.

I’ve never heard that of this company and am not even gonna bother trying. It seems fishy to me and I have a hard time believing Sony would allocate units to this no name company.

Soon you will hear a lot of them.. the company which ripped people off with pre orders they can’t deliver.

Potentially on Amazon/Best Buy at 3 AM as well. We'll see. They just launched in Brazil tonight on Amazon. Different regions, but we'll see.

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

Pass. I've been burned before with online shopping. It could be legit but not taking chances.

I'll still casually look but I'm not even wasting time anymore. Not going out of my way. It was, at least for me, next to impossible to get one anyway but were about to have Christmas shoppers join the fight soon.

Lack of availability, super hi demand, and especially Scalping has taken the fun out of this so I'm just going to wait this thing out.

It would have been cool if every retailer was able to do a lottery process. Everyone has a fair shot and it's not about how fast you can click checkout and type your info. And also bots wouldn't get them all.

The only way a regular human being ha a chance of obtaining one of these consoles before launch at this point is for a major retailer to have an UNANNOUNCED restock, and to be notified of it, and even then TO GET VERY LUCKY. An announced restock will instantly be destroyed by bots and resellers. It’s not even worth trying in those cases.

Fuck Antonline. I bought an HP laptop from them last year thru newegg. It wasn’t advertised as a max-q version. When I got it i checked the driver info and it said max-q. I asked for a refund and they charged me a restocking fee for their fuckup. It took me a week and newegg eventually gave me a full refund.

Best way to have done the initial first wave would be for Sony to announce all consoles go live at a fixed time (3 PM Eastern for example) in every store physically. This way bots couldn‘t get a bunch and everyone will only get 1 console max.
makimg this all online only really screws over the average joes, the types strolling into GameStop clueless asking to preorder. Reminds me of the scene from American Psycho Lol

This site is a scam. They admitted that bots are a problem and that bots bought all the PS5s...lol. Sit was down for 15 minutes; how the hell can bots even buy anything?
