Kind of a kick in the teeth.  Got the preorder link, signed in, and was put in the queue.  Finally got into the store and the only things showing on the site were the PS5 controllers, VR, remotes, pre-ordering games.  Not one PS5 console could be found.  What gives?

Same thing happened to me. I was on my phone. I hit the link again on my tablet that wasn't signed in a few minutes later and it worked for me. Had to wait in the queue again, but only about five minutes. Sent me straight to login, then the console order page. Just keep trying.

Just got my pre-order through the Sony invite! Very excited and a bit of a relief after the opening night chaos.

When did you sign up for it?

I honestly liked the way they implemented it to ensure people couldn't abuse it and only allowing one system per person. The wait time was shorter than I expected as well

Sony made its one per psn/ household . They went by shipping address.

Thanks for the info.  Took me 10 times logging in, getting into the queue (short time wait) and finally, that webpage magically showed up.  

Can't thank you enough!

Literally took me 3 hours to get that website to pop that pre-order page. It kept going to accessories.

Finally got it pre-orders from Sony

Yep, had the same problem.  Only had the accessories page.  Could not find the consoles anywhere.

People who ordered from Amazon are getting e-mails saying it's possible they won't be able to ship all orders to arrive on release date due to high demand, but will do their best to as close as possible. Well, my guess is they're just covering their asses in case there's an issue.

I think I registered the day after the pre-order program was announced.

"Pre orders are up!"

No they aren't. Ps5 is sold out everywhere except the ebay ripoffs charging $1000 for them.

All the stores in my area already changed the release date to February 2021, so I guess there will be a 4 month gap between the 1st and 2nd wave of pre-orders. It might be a regional thing though.

I just saw someone bought a PS5 on ebay for £8000, what an idiot. 
it should be illegal to resell unless you physically have the item in posession.

Likely a bot. Just because something sells for that much doesn't mean it gets paid for. I get non-paying buyers all the time

I'm in South Africa, and the pre-order pages slowly started to appear on various local retailers in the morning (17 September). Luckily I managed to grab a pre-order just in time.

 

But by 11am, most of the PS5 pre-order pages were no longer working or listed as sold out.

 

I suppose we got a very small batch of units, maybe around 100 or 200 units allocated to the whole of South Africa. Some of the retailers mentioned that there will be a second wave of shipments, but could not say when they would arrive, and might only be next year sometime.

 

Due to import taxes and other taxing bullcrap and markup by local scumbags, here in South Africa we pay US$612 for Digital Edition and US$734 for the Disc version. 😡 Crazy right. So most people opted for the Digital Edition, and those sold out much faster than the Disc versions.

Hopefully when they ship these consoles out they will be in a brown, paper bag.
