I'm not currently part of the Shoppers Reward program, is it worth it to start with this purchase?
My PS5 is ready for pick up so should I sign up for something and try to get the 20x points etc as a first timer?

20x points is Nov 14th I think so I should wait until then I guess?
That's it! They give you the card at the store, they scan it when you pay, and then you go home and register so you can use the app, shop online, etc etc.

I picked up mine today. The store had received 30 pre-orders. 2x digital picked up, about 300k points.

Nothing so far. My TV is a little high so maybe thats why?
Only noise I've heard so far is the fan when I open my PS5 with a disc inside. It'll go on for a few seconds and then I never hear it again. Though I have only played for maybe 2-3 hours.

If anyone in mississauga or Toronto does not pickup their PS5 pre-order, please let me know! I would love to grab one from shoppers.

Mine seems to have the same noise. Can't hear it once the action starts. Still got 11.9 months of warranty, will worry about it later! Face With Tears Of Joy

I had the exact same noise as well! When my PS5 was scanning my disc for Miles Morales when I put it in, it was making a buzzing noise which is normal I’m pretty sure because it’s just scanning the disc. After the scanning my PS5 buzzing noise was gone. So it’s pretty much normal.

Well I had a great weekend. Picked up my PS5 disc version on Friday morning with 20x personal offer. Had an Ecobee4 installed for free (from Greenbrain thread) on Friday afternoon. Picked up my PS5 digital version on Saturday with 20x offer. My brother is taking the PS5 disc console and I decided not to keep the PS5 digital. I sold the PS5 digital for $850 ($435 profit after points) today.

mine is similar but playing 4k blurays make no noise ... it seems to be at boot up or installing when it makes the most noise

Does anyone know when shoppers will have it back in stock? Any particular place I can check or keep an eye out?

That's some AAA desperation on the consumer's part LOL.
But great for you :)

Maybe on November 20th? Some people may not pick up their PS5, worth taking a look at a few Shoppers nearby to see if they put those on the shelf or not. I'd go early in the morning though.

Yeah and mine was the lowest price, most ads are for $900+ for the PS5 digital.

All of the SDM stores are going to get dozens of calls/drop ins on the 20th from people looking for the 2 or 3 PS5s that were not picked up in the entire country.

What is with people trying to scalp dualsense controllers for $120-140.
Every store I’ve been to has them on the shelves, no shortage of them

I saw a big display of them at the front in Costco today.
