EB Games Require In-Person Deposit For PS5 Pre-orders
Ensuing the usual ‘fastest finger first’ way of dealing with pre-orders for a highly-anticipated item, EB Games have instead made hopeful shoppers looking to pre-order a PS5 or an XBox Series X today come into the store and slap down a $200 deposit.
The consoles are limited to one per person, and the whole debacle is obviously an attempt to thwart resellers from ordering up and on-selling the consoles for big money.
JUST ANNOUNCED: PlayStation®5 Disc Consoles are available to preorder today instore!
Visit your local store from 9am to preorder yours.
$200 deposit required. 1 Per Person. Strictly limited. Preorders available instore only.

By the time you read this, they will probably be sold out, as the consoles are available in limited quantities, but if not – EB Games are predicting you’ll get them from mid-November to December.
