I got excited by this but PS4 Pro is only $240 TIV, not $270 like it was before.

$270 - Nintendo Switch
$240 - PS4 PRO SYS 1TB
$210 - PS4 SLIM SYS 1TB,XB1 X SYS 1TB
$190 - PS4 SLIM SYS 500GB
$150 - SWITCH LITE
$140 - XB1 S SYS 1TB,XB1 S SYS 2TB,PS4 SYS 500GB
$125 - XB1 S SYS 500GB,XB1 SYS 1TB
$100 - XB1 SYS 500GB

Only a $30 difference between slim and pro. That's a punch to the gut EB.
RFD: Pick any two.

2) Low Price

Not much of a deal if you can't even preorder. I will call in though. Maybe trade in and then when they have console available you get one.

Although trusting EB with a credit towards a console is sketchy at best.

Availability of PS5 isn't even there right now.

Not a bad deal for the PS4 Slim 500/1TB. Considering the market is about to get flooded with used PS4s, it's a good time to unload them for next-gen. Just wondering how long you'd have to wait to get one, as Sony said they sold more PS5s in 12 hours than they sold PS4s in 12 weeks!

Do they even have preorders available anymore?

Also sucks that they lowered the TIV this time (PS4 Slim 1TB was $235 IIRC).
There's a sucker born every minute.

$270 - Nintendo Switch (-)
$240 - PS4 PRO SYS 1TB (-$30)
$210 - PS4 SLIM SYS 1TB,XB1 X SYS 1TB (-$25)
$190 - PS4 SLIM SYS 500GB (-$25)
$150 - SWITCH LITE (-)
$140 - XB1 S SYS 1TB,XB1 S SYS 2TB,PS4 SYS 500GB (-$10)
$125 - XB1 S SYS 500GB (-$25),XB1 SYS 1TB (+$10)
$100 - XB1 SYS 500GB (-$15)

The Switch consoles held their value (of course), and everything dropped (expected) except for the 1 TB OG Xbone which is randomly worth $10 more lol

Does trade in require a controller with the console or just cables?

Seems like this promo is destined to fail since preorders are accounted for at this point. If I could put my name on a list then bring in my old console when buying the new one that would be better deal.

From last time, the problem is getting the actual pre order because of stock...

Now that the values went down, it's discouraging even more. It's understandable because they got a lot of trade-ins so it just makes sense to lower value but still.

One of the EBs I go to has something like 130 total PS5 preorders between disc/no-disc and what was preordered in-store and online for pick-up in-store. I'm sure there's stores in areas with a higher population that have even more and I can only imagine what some of the retailers in the US processed.

I just secured a X preorder yesterday, I am going to go in today after 6 pm. I'll report back.

IIRC, you would be able to do it. Not sure how it works though.

This was discussed in one of the other PS5 threads (there's so many, I've lost track!) but you have to bear in mind that with the PS4, pre-orders started right after pricing was announced at E3 (like 4-5 months before launch?). With the PS5, people were desperate for months to find out when the pre-orders were going to happen, and then they were dropped with almost no notice less than 2 months before launch. With all the rumours of manufacturing issues and shortages swirling all this year, and MUCH more sophisticated bots in 2020 than in 2013 (and a lot more scalpers without bots looking to make a quick buck I'm sure, too), and millions more PS4 owners than there were PS3 owners? It's not really a surprise that all of the PS5 pre-order availability was snatched up immediately.
