UPDATE: It’s highly likely that JB Hi-Fi stores have sold out of this batch of pre-orders now, so please be cautious about calling them and going in. We’ll keep you posted about other retailers that may have stock in the next week or two. Just as a reminder, it’s worth keeping an eye on the Amazon listing HERE.
We can now confirm that JB Hi-Fi will be taking PS5 pre-orders in store starting today with stock set to arrive on or after January 21st.
As of today, stores have received their allocations for the next shipment meaning that they can now take pre-orders for the drop happening next week. You’re best to call your local JB Hi-Fi before heading in just in case they have already pre-sold out or are yet to get their allocation numbers (which should happen in the next few days if not today).
As far as we know, this drop will purely be in-store only for JB Hi-Fi, but this also means that we should see drops at retailers such as Amazon and potentially EB Games next week (for wave 3 pre-orders). You can follow the Amazon listing for PS5 HERE.
