I got the Horizon bundle because £530 wasn't expensive enough 🙈 It went smooth for me too, more security checks than enough though, 2FA for sign in, a puzzle to solve and then the bank wanted a separate authentication so I'm shocked it all worked (for me). They won't fully charge the card until around launch right? 😵

You’ve got to laugh, but the hoops they made us jump through for this bloody thing. They knew how much stock they’d have, it’s pretty inexcusable. 

 

It is a bit weird when loads of us have a post 10am link :D

I can get to the "add to cart" and "order and pay" links, but I'm having second thoughts now - I  registered first and hoped that I would convince myself later. :blush: 

 

I'd give someone else the link to the order page but I think it's just the standard page for everyone and it looks at the PSN ID that's currently signed in. No I'm not telling you my PSN login. :P

Here's hoping we can go through this again when they actually allow other retailers to sell them.

Tbh I’m sick of it now. It took me a year to get a PS5, and whilst I wasn’t going out of my way every day or anything I still put in way more effort than I would normally.

What pisses me off the most, is that firstly they clearly allowed people to jump in early. Second, they must have known that versus the number of emails they sent out, they didn't have anywhere near enough stock. 

 

edit: well this post aged well 😳

I know how you feel, it's only a luxury that whilst I can afford is not essential for me, unless Alxy is released on it and then I will need one.

Did people who managed to grab one have a 10 a.m. time, mine is 13.00 so I have a vague hope that my one will go live then. A man can hope right???

This is the only other thing I can think could be the issue. My time was 11am, so maybe I’ll try again then but I doubt it will change anything.

Yeah, mine was 10am, but I clicked the link to the event about 9.45 and had a timer, then had a chime to say I was in at about 9.55.

Can I ask you what time you were given? 

See above. I don't want to give you and @sofasurfer false hope, but perhaps Sony are staggering their stock allocations so that their systems are not overloaded all at once. If you have a time of 11am, perhaps get in the queue now and wait until you're in.

That's what I'm thinking, maybe only those with 10am links were allowed to buy at 10am 🤔 Sony releasing them in batches and your link identifying what time window you are e.g only 500 links for 10am went out. So I would say if your time slot wasn't 10am try again around the time your email said.

I’ll try again but there is no queue at the moment you just jump straight to the product page.

Maybe but I doubt the system they are using is that intelligent, they wouldn’t know your PSN ID for one, and if there was something embedded in the link surely it would alert you to your own specific time?

Yeah wouldn't be hard to say you're too early come back later.
