No, they haven't oversold. They were set to close the preorder window once the allocation had been met

The way its worked before is their system gets updated around about an hour after their shops close. So if they close at 8 on the Wednesday you should be able to order one for collection some time after 9pm.

I've done it before for game releases on a Friday, was able to order at 10pm on the Thursday.

You couldn't really pre-order in June. The only place taking "pre-orders" were Gamestop who were seemingly taking an endless list of their €50 pre-orders, with no actual numbers for day 1. They could have gone through that list over the past few months, I know the 3 times I've been there the past year I've been asked if i wanted to get my name on the list, so they were pushing it

People here will realise you could pre-order and the best ways to do that, many others won't and will panic in the lead up to Christmas and pay whatever they have to.

If a 20 or 30 something year old lad buying for himself was to pay over the odds then I wouldn't have an awful lot of sympathy and they won't make up the cases paying the scalpers for the majority of cases

But the 40 or 50 year old parent who you can't really expect to know the best way to ensure getting it at RRP in time for Christmas, they're being taken advantage of

You might say that's capitalism and the way the world works, but it's the worst form of it, greed and profit at all costs

This exact thought stopped me from trying to pre order on the first pre order release. Despite my wife's pushing to pre order.
I just assumed they'll be bundles with games included we could choose.
Oh how very wrong I was.

Won't be anything like that for the foreseeable, maybe in mid 2021 when stock is stable you might see PS5 + select game for €550, but there's no business need for it now, they're going to sell regardless and people ain't going to buy it alone

I think the PlayStation Plus has a load of games with it for PS5 buyers.

I don’t have a PS4 so I will be kept busy.

The only place you could preorder from June was Gamestop. And those people apparently haven't even been told yet if their order is secured. (Which is silly imo, because surely they are ahead of everyone who ordered last week)

You could preorder since June with the most unreliable retailer in Ireland. And then there were essentially two one hour windows with Ireland's other key retailer supplemented by a few other Irish retailers where all over the place. One of those two windows was in the middle of the night, unannounced.

So you're just so wrong. On so many levels. And trying to pin it on buyers is shïtty and wholly incorrect.

Thanks, delivery was the only option when I ordered during the week.

Looking at some games to get,
Ordered doom eternal for ps4 as there is free upgrade to ps5. Ps5 game for 24e. Are there any other games that would be worth getting?
Got of war?
Spiderman?

I saw miles morales is 80 but that comes with spider man. Is this good or piss poor deal?

That's what I mean. It is called out but allowed.
