EB Games PS5 Xbox Series X

PS5 & Xbox Series X/S Pre-Orders At EB Games Will Be Online Only And Require A Larger Deposit

UPDATE: EB Games has now confirmed that pre-orders for the Xbox Series X/S will be online only with a $200 deposit. Xbox Series X/S pre-orders go live on September 22nd.

We understand that EB Games stores have today been instructed that pre-orders for both the PS5 and Xbox Series X/Xbox Series S will take place online only.

Pre-orders that are placed online can either be delivered to customer’s homes or picked up in store. All online pre-orders for both the PS5 and Xbox Series X/Xbox Series S will require a $200 deposit online and all pre-orders are limited to one per customer.

This decision has been made by EB Games to ensure that all customers have a fair go in pre-ordering their console of choice and also helps with social distancing. We understand that their websites have received an upgrade in anticipation of an influx of pre-orders for both consoles.

It’s still unclear when pre-orders for the Xbox Series X/S and PS5 will go live, but with the Xbox Series S being officially announced earlier today, it’s looking like at least pre-orders for the Xbox Series S/X will go live in the near future.

Personally, I think the larger deposit is a good move as it’ll deter scalpers. I also think that online only is the way to go. It’ll allow them to easily manage stock and ensure that people that get an order don’t miss out due to over-ordering.
