If you really want one, I wouldn't rely on buying it online. Australia's preorders were gone in minutes:

Now the question is, was this due solely to high demand, or reseller bots?
It sounds like the PS5 was about the same amount of units per store. I'm not surprised, despite being a gaming store EB isn't a high volume seller like BestBuy or Walmart. But of course one would think they would get more allocated. Aren't they handling the Xbox financing?mrtvgame wrote: ↑ The promo is horseshit really when they only get less than 20 units per store for pre-order. Go waste time lining up or grab one easily on line. Like dethrock said, you can get your money for used consoles other ways.
If EB had half a brain, they would say to customers, go ahead and pre-order online and then we can apply the credit. But they are so stupid they act like it is 1985.
