I already answered that yesterday.

But in short...probably yes...if not at launch, then at some point in one of the Firmware updates of the console.

Is the "Ongoing Deals Discussions" section for deals that are active but not "Hot" anymore or what?

As far as I recall...most non-Hot deals were moved to "Expired Deals" or "Shopping" Discussions, no?

But if a deal was Hot...and still going on in one way or another...why would it be moved from it's original location in "Hot Deals"?

I ask...because if it was still "Ongoing" but not as hot a topic...it would automatically be pushed down the "Hot Deals" list anyway, right?

So why move it...if it's "Ongoing"?

Just curious.
Probably because what makes this a hot deal? It’s being sold at full price, and is basically sold out everywhere right now. Not that I am complaining, I preordered a ps5 already, but it’s not exactly a deal.

Got one on bestbuy.ca an hour or so ago.
Looks like cancellations are filtering back into the system.

not to get OT but I was the same 200+ positive electronics sales then the "buyer claims item not as advertised" started, paypal holds your money and u basically forced to take it back even though the buyer used/broke it/swaped parts on their own fault. They basically hold u hostage to take it back. I said forget it. But try and get money back from a scam seller and good luck "sorry the account has been closed" only the honest people lose. but they are sure to take their 10% + 3% pp fee.

Anyone that did the PS4 trade in at EB towards the PS5 yesterday, did you get an edge bump up on the value as well? Or did you just get the value listed ($270 for the Pro and $235 for the Slim 1TB)?

Did you have it in your cart already? I've got one in a BB cart and another in a WM cart and have been refreshing all day.....
Last night it appeared that BB pulled the listing for both consoles but they were back up this morning and I've seen the 'preorder' button flash up again but wasn't fast enough......

I added it to cart this morning. It went oos right away. Refreshed regularly but not too much cos that caused an access denied error. Finally was able to move to enter card details. Froze again after i did my 2 step auth during payment.

Thought i lost it but it was under orders when i refreshed it.

It was the disk version. I got lots of ps4 discs and also my library loans ps4 games and will do ps5 too.

Now to sell one of my pros!

As per the admins, we're keeping the thread in ODD unless it's in-stock somewhere, then it would be moved back to Hot Deals for visibility (many users don't read ODD). If someone sees it in stock then report this thread and we'll move it.

I had an order with EB that went through on Thurs night and received email confirmation (and the hold appeared on my cc) but when I check my order status on the EB site it states it's cancelled.... pah. You can only email EB games as the customer service phone is offline but no response so far, so I'm working on a backup plan.
Has anyone heard what's going on with Shoppers? They have a page up but don't appear to have launched pre-orders yet.....

There's been proof posted and via Twitter that it already happened a couple nights ago, despite what it says on the Shopper's landing page.

Pretty sure that was debunked as a developer test page and not the actual pre-order... also their site says: "Pre-order starts September 18, 2020 at 6pm ET".

I have not seen any proof that Shoppers did a pre-order or that anyone got one as of 24 hours ago. I must have missed it.
Don't like the thread? Hide it or report it. Don't incessantly complain about it in the thread, please.
