Struck out on best buy and walmart . The bestbuy miss hurt most , because I timed it just as it dropped before 1pm est. Still could not complete checkout . Bestbuy was a random time drop too that I loaded seconds after going live , and STILL missed on a ps5. Ridiculous bullshit.

Don't Sony have some crazy automated production facility in Japan? Hopefully supply issues won't be an issue from q1/q2 2021 onwards...I hope anyway I'm going in when that Gran Turismo 7 goodness is coming :)

How do you find this info out?
They do it between 3pm and 6pm eastern, and haven't done it for a couple of days, so I just checked when I got home and got lucky.

By lucky I mean I got in line. Have never actually scored one from them, probably been in line 6 or 7 times. lol.

Oh gotcha! Well, thanks for sharing! Hopefully we'll both be able to grab one!

Can someone tell me if using the Walmart app will the add to cart button just show when looking at item or do I have to back out then go back in to listing.

Go back and then open the item, repeat until you see the ‘add to cart button’

Congrats to all the lucky buyers. Now sit back and pray Walmart doesn't either cancel your order or simply not deliver it ever. Just kidding. But seriously, don't sleep easy until its delivered.

Oof. How many tried the Walmart deal? Tried at 3, 3:10 and 3:20. Mashing F5 two minutes before the drop. Instantly out of stock. Couldn't even get one in my cart.

This is after I ordered one from Amazon way back when and it got "lost" in the mail apparently.

I dunno but I see a ton of success stories on resetera and on GameFAQs and I was successful. Surprised you had so much trouble.

I only tried this one because I got lucky and snagged an RTX card yesterday after trying for months. Thought maybe luck was on my side but you can't have it all.

Edit: You're right. I'm sorry. Kneejerk reaction.

I had the same experience.

Well, the more people get it, the less try next time.

Must be luck, you click add to cart as soon as you refresh and it says out of stock when you check out immediately.

Probably. Of our topic on GameFAQs 4 of the 5 got one (and another said he could of if he wanted but decided not to at the order button). The only one who didn't missed the first 2 waves. 1 used the direct add to cart link. The other 3 just regular refresh.

But, I did hear another drop for walmart is coming at 3pm tomorrow so should be more chances coming.

Did you get a PS5 or an Xbox? I heard a lot of Xbox's are getting early dates.

A PS5 I ordered for co-worker changed from Jan 9th to Dec 21st. He's stoked, because it will be in time for his kids for Xmas. That Walmart drop on Tuesday was huge, a crapload of people got one at that time.

Nothing from Best Buy today but got a disc PS5 from Walmart. Arrives 1/12.

...and it's shipped! Estimated delivery date of Boxing Day but much like the original estimate I suspect it will get here sooner. Shipping facility is only 3.5 hours from here.

My wife and I have been ON this shit almost every day with no luck. It's not that important I get one, I mean I WANT one, but at this point she's taken it as a personal affront that it is hard to acquire and now must succeed in purchasing one.

Haha mine is the same, she couldn't give two shits about it herself, but she's checking the tracking apps every hour to try and find me one. She even suggested we buy it from scalpers and I had to talk her down from paying three times the price for it (not giving those fuckers a dime).
