Twitter account ‘PS5 Stock Alerts’ is reporting that The Good Guys stores will be taking PS5 orders from tomorrow for delivery over the next seven weeks. Alongside this claim, the account has obtained a list of how many PS5 units that each store will be receiving in the leadup to Christmas.
It’s important to note that some The Good Guys stores do have waitlists, and similar to JB Hi-Fi, it does seem to differ on a store-by-store basis meaning that whilst some stores do have wait lists, others won’t and will be taking pre-orders from tomorrow. The only way to find out is by contacting your local store. If you are successful, you’ll need to drop a 20% deposit ($150).
The tweet reads: “The Good Guys are receiving limited PlayStation 5 standard edition stock in store! Pre-orders for these allocations will begin on Monday the 1st of November in The Good Guys stores listed to the left, along with the number of units they will be receiving over a 7-week period. Orders can generally be placed in store or over the phone, though do keep in mind that this is subject to each individual store. They will require a 20% deposit upfront. There might already be waiting lists at some stores for these products. Certain stores may have a limited amount of PlayStation 5 Digital edition consoles available.”

It’s no secret at this point that it’s going to be harder than ever to get a PS5 in the lead-up to Christmas. With stock heavily constrained for both the PS5 as well as the Xbox Series X, and with Christmas less than two months away, it’s going to become even more of an impossible task to get a console more than 12 months after release. We’re fairly confident EB Games will do one last drop before Christmas, and we’ll let you know as soon as that happens as well as other retailers.
