PS5 orders go live tonight at GameStop! Here’s how to secure one at launch! PS Weekly #6

First off, today is Veterans Day in the United States and I want to make a moment to appreciate the United States Veterans and US Servicemen both past and present. Thank you for all you have done for the nation. Without the courage of those men and women, I would not have the freedoms I have today and for that my family and I, as well as everyone here at PS5 Gamers are grateful.    UPDATE: Right before I went to publish this article, GameStop emailed me to let me know that they will have PS5 console sales go live this evening on They did not offer me a specific time other than saying “this evening.” Get ready to order online, but read up on our tips on how to secure a PS5 console for release day! Best of luck!     I pushed off this week’s PS Weekly by one day to pay respects to the holiday listed above, but we will be back next Tuesday without regular news updates. The time has arrived for the first wave of PS5’s and we are less than 24 hours away from the official release day! Whether it’s being wicked up at the store or delivered to the home, Gamers everywhere are getting on the hype train! Choo-Choo!! Exciting times indeed!   Now, a warning for those that were not able to preorder a PS5. If you or someone you know is hoping to snag a PS5 on release day at the stores, plan accordingly. It was announced that (at least in the U.S.A.) stores would not sell the consoles in person. You will need to place your order online and pick it up in the store. I’m sure there will be some delivery options, but the point being that it won’t do you any good to camp it out at stores overnight. Some stores will likely disregard this policy and sell consoles in person without an order ahead of time, but for most, this won’t be the case.    My advice to you is to set up several phones, tablets, laptops or computers and log into the websites you want to buy from and wait it out while spamming that refresh button. If you’re looking to purchase from Walmart, they are offering 4 different times on November 12th, for you to get a chance to purchase online.    PS5 consoles will be on sale at at 12:00 pm, 3:00 pm, 6:00 pm and 9:00 pm Eastern time. This is where the constant refreshing comes into play. I don’t really know how early you should start checking, but I would be ready at least 30 minutes before these times start. The PS5 could go live early, so it’s good to be there already. If you get into a que, stop refreshing. Otherwise, keep it up until you see it is available and put it in your cart for checkout.    You might want to check online and social media sites … Read More

PlayStation Weekly Issue #4

Welcome back to another issue of PlayStation Weekly! The best place to get caught up with PlayStation news!  Out the gate, I’m going to tell you that it was kind of a slow news week in the gaming sector. I mean, there are lots of little tidbits here and there, but not really note worthy info to be read here. That being said, there was one major news break that has caught a lot of attention since yesterday. That news break is the delay of Destruction Allstars! One of the few PS5 exclusive launch lineups.   Not to worry, though. This is actually pretty good news for future PS5 owners. Destruction Allstars is getting a delayed release into February, 2021, but not due to the game needing more work. It would seem that Destruction Allstars is getting delayed because of low preorder numbers. But that’s not all. Destruction Allstars will also be released as a free PS Plus title in February! It will be available for free for 2 months for Plus subscribers and then it will go back to stores for whatever price tags Sony hands it.    While this news might not seem to go much deeper, it does. With the news of Destruction Allstars being delayed, many gamers that had preordered PS5’s with the game bundled in, had concerns about what would happen with their preorders? Now, it seems like the solution should be simple. Get the cost of the game taken off the overall price or swap it for another title, but GameStop sent out some alarming emails that could have been better explained and will hopefully be updated and sent again with clearer terms.    While I haven’t heard about how other companies are handling the situation with their bundles, I can say that GameStop sent out emails to customers to let them know that their orders have been delayed. Dun, dun, duuuunnnnnn!!!!  The problem here is that email doesn’t specify exactly what happened or how things will move forward. A lot of folks got in touch with GameStop customer service to inquire about said email and things aren’t 100% concrete as of yet because GameStop hasn’t released a statement yet, but many gamers are claiming that GameStop told them they would cancel only the game and the rest of the console bundle would ship on time.    I haven’t heard any news of preorders being cables over this, but I have a feeling that people are going to make the mistake of canceling their preorder online as they might assume the console bundle won’t ship until sometime in February, 2021. Do not cancel your preorders people! GameStop is a little slow to the punch when it comes to clearing things up and the email was likely an automated message to give you a heads up that more details are on the way.    If GameStop ever does make a public comment on the issue, I’ll be sure to let you know, but I’m in … Read More
