In my last order Walmart charged me 3x and took it back twice so I'll say it's normal.

I don't think for this time around. My orders that got cancelled didn't get a charge on my credit card

The slightly longer time it takes for these latest drops to sell out does seem to indicate that it is marginally (and I mean marginally) easier to get a PS5 now versus back in November or December.

Ah okay. Same here. I contacted Wally World's chat CSR and they said that the vendor has to confirm the order on their end. This can take anywhere from 1 to 3 days. I asked about cancellation and they said they're not sure either.

Nice. Only my Xbox X was charged.

Proud to be an Indian.

Also if you look up your order on your Walmart account and it has gone from "ordered" to "processing by seller" it usually means your 100% safe (at least from my experience)

do we know how large these batches are , is it just a couple of thousand units at a time? I think in the states they get drops every second day and more retailer options.

From my experience, if your order didn't change from "ordered" to "processing by seller" in 6 hours, it will usually just be cancelled after a day or two.
Unfortunately that has been the case for me for yesterday's restock, FML.

7000 for BB, 4000 for Walmart I believe (disc versions). I think Amazon should have the biggest drops. Their pre-xmas drop had 10,000.

Brutal. I'm not sure Amazon had any restock in months, unless my email notification isn't working
