Good for you!
I was fortunate enough to get into the 2nd round of invintational pre order from Sony Direct in September with free launch day delivery as a PlayStation Plus member.
Then last Thursday night Friday morning Sony billed and my bank held it as potentially being fraud.
When I awoke at six am to an alert from my bank I immediately approved it, Sony had sent an email as well stating an issue had accured and to update my/verify my payment information before six pm est or 9 Pacific.
I checked and updated my information at 6:20 am which really wasn't necessary due to the initial charge wouldn't have made it that far if it was incorrect.
Went to bed that night with a pending charge looking all good, woke up Saturday with a cancellation notification from Sony.
Chat was useless asked to have it escalated which it supposedly was, have received two emails since stating that they hadn't forgotten about me! Another stating your PS5 is on the way with the 12th come and gone and nothing to show for it and no charge to my account.
I've attempted multiple phone calls and chats all being "too busy"
I requested the PS4 VR camera adapter as well and was approved but never got any shipping information. When I got to the house yesterday the 12th there laid the adapter in its shipping envelope soaking wet! Luckily the adapter was in a zip baggy, but if not for that it would probably have been ruined.
Attempted to order from Walmart with a group of three other people during the noon, 3pm, 6,pm and 9pm pre-order times with no one never making to the payment method.
Sat in the que today with Sony Direct for three hours with nothing to show for it but a drained battery.
Bank asked about my recent experience and I explained it was complete ass, but in nicietys, they've called twice today but I haven't had time to hear their potential spew.
Well that's my experience, haven't decided which one is more inept the Titans defense and special teams or my order experience!
