    I have the charger on backorder stock expected Dec 14th. You can get it from CPC. No need to pay extra. Although I do question why I really need one when I have plenty of chargers around.

    IIRC you have 7 days from point of purchase until it is automatically refunded/cancelled. But if the stock count was incorrect or whatever guess who'd be the loser out - I'd try and pick that up sooner than later if you've got confirmation it is available.

    EDIT: Actually I think you can extend your click and collect window: "You can extend your online collection window in the Recent Orders section of Your Account."

    Even a hundred is probably optimistic - lot of stock has gone to staff at the various retailers - probably only dozens will have made it to retail.

    Sorry I should have made it clear, my confirmation email said I can collect it from Wednesday 9th but will receive a confirmation text once it’s ready.

    Thanks managed to order one using this. Email saying for 18th December. Did it for a bloke at work too. You might have just saved his Xmas as his son wanted one. Cheers

    Yep it’s well annoying. However CPC appear to let you pre-order unlike the other websites so I’ve ordered through them.

    PS4 wasn't released during a global virus pandemic with loads of countries going into lock down with factory's closing.

    That and scalpers are out like crazy with the little amount of stock that did get released.

    combination of scalpers (even on here most people are ordering more than one), and retailers refusing to do unlimited pre orders.

    we need OCUK to start selling them, they the only retailer I know that let people pre order and just wait instead of the nonsense going on now.

    Supply and demand.

    PS4 sold 1 million units on launch day apparently.

    PS5 is being reported as over 2 million sold on launch day.

    I honestly think with current demand Sony just have no hope of keeping up.

    That's a surprise if i'm honest, although I still believe if this year wasn't as it was and was like any other year more would have been available.

    Scalpers are taking advantage of the situation retailers are creating, they know that if they gobble up all of the stock that is slowly trickling out with bots etc the demand for their rip-off priced consoles will still be there. If regular people could simply pre-order they'd be less inclined to pay Ebay prices out of despair, prices would soon fall and the scalpers would stop hoovering up additional stock.
