I got a preauthorization for $101 for the controller from BestBuy as well. It is showing as shipping via Purolator. I am still slightly worried about the PS5 being shipped via CanadaPost. When I preordered it, I did not have an option to pay extra to pay with someone faster.

I think they will pull through. They've had enough time to validate pre-orders and coordinate any plans for distributing them. I'm sure some locations will be impacted more than others.

It would be nice for SDM to communicate this week so people can make plans if they can't fulfil those orders.

Anyone know if the walmart ps5 pre order charge is just a temp pre authorized charge that will go away or is this the final charge for the ps5?

FYI: We'll get an e-mail with more info, a few days before launch
I plan to be at SDM before they open, given they send another email regarding pickup information. I don’t wanna get there later on that day and find out a employee messed up and sold it to a walk in. I think I speak for a lot of people that how fortunate we were to preorder the ps5, better not take any chances.

WAlmart has never charged me until they ship and I have had a few games ordered from years ago in an E3 promotion ie cyberpunk. Every now and then I would see a pending that would come and go sometimes even only for a dollar, might just be checking if card is still valid. I have a ps5 coming from Walmart as well and see the pending but don't expect to be charged til they ship.

My SDM is open 24 hours, so I can't really do that.. unless I can pick it up at 12 AM on the 12th lol. But yeah, I'm going to try to be there as early as possible for the same exact reason as you.

Ya so is mine they will probably keep in t pending til it ships to out a hold on that amount on your card so there's no surprises on release day.

When I pre-ordered the Spiderman PS4 Pro, they didn't charge me until almost 3 weeks after I got it. There was a pre-authorization hold for a couple of days before and then it disappeared. I was really hoping I got lucky!! Only to get the transaction go through three weeks later.

It's a pre-auth. My XBox one went through on the 21st, it would have posted by now if it was an actual charge.

Luckily mine opens at 8 so I’ll be there beforehand. I do hope they’ll let you get it at midnight and not have to come back later in the morning.
