Anyone hear anything about shoppers preorder? Guessing they are going to do one later as they did with the ps5?

Can someone order retailers from fastest to slowest in terms of actual delivery when consoles arrive on Nov 10th.

Yes good luck everyone, hoping that doesn't happen here. I posted on another thread that Australia sold out in minutes...

Anyone going in-store just in case?

I’m at an eb games right now. There’s 4 people here, but apparently (according to a guy in line), this location is only getting 3 Series X and 1 Series S. So we’re all gonna try and get online as well depending on how many this location actually has.

I'm going X, personally, just for the extra space and disc drive. Even though I'm doing fine with a 512gb external drive on my One X and *rarely* watch physical media (and am entirely digital in my games library), I can afford the Series X and I like the flexibility it offers.

If you spent a good amount on your TV to get HDR and maybe HDMI 2.1 it means your all in go with X for sure. If your TV just do basic 4K I would go for the series S it upscale to 4k like the ps4 pro did anyway. I know it's not really the way you should decide but maybe it's the thing that will help you decide. :)

Walmart has a limit of 1 for each S and X. Hopefully other retailers do the same.

That's low. I thought most EB's had more PS5 preorders for people who went in store. Where are you anyway?

I think the whole Bethesda purchase solidified the Series S for me. The fact you're getting all these games day 1 on Game Pass is very tempting. I'm also hoping I can sell my One S for a quick buck and help subsidize some of the cost.
