Game Spot has recently announced that antonline will have a limited amount of PS5 and Series X bundles...

https://www.gamespot.com/articles/ps5-and-xbox-series-x-preorder-bundles-will-be-available-tomorrow/1100-6483213/

But beware of online retailer antonline because they are currently rated a 1.6 stars out of 202 reviews. Also check the BBB's website. There are numerous reports of customers that have received broken items from them and they will not take them back or they'll use shady methods to get out of accepting returns.

https://www.bbb.org/us/ga/atlanta/profile/computer-dealers/antonlinecom-0443-4003659/complaints

Keep in mind, it's the gamers that's keeping gaming sites like Game Spot and IGN relevant so I also asked Game Spot not to refer fraudulent companies like this to us. We're having a rough enough 2020. The last thing I want is for some poor guy or girl to pay for a broken console bundle and not be able to get a refund.

Good luck guys

Sketchy is an understatement. I want to pre-order a PS5 on there so bad but I can't bring myself to doing it. It's not worth the potential headache.

Well it looks like I’ll just be walking into my local Walmart or Best Buy and trying to get an Xbox Series X that way.

Not a problem. Here's one testimony from a soccer mom who bought a broken XBox One for her 10 year old. Spread this one around when you get a chance... This is straight from the BBB website.

"04/30/2020

Purchased an xbox 1s, and received a damaged one. I purchased a new xbox 1s for my 10 year old. For the pandemic, because his xbox 360 broke. I recieved a broken xbox 3-25-2020 that will NOT turn on. I have called numerous times to get this resolved, jumped thru every hoop they asked, i submitted a RMA online, at first i just wanted it replaced but now i just want my money back. Ive not heard back from them or anyone about the xbox in over 3 weeks. Purchased a walmart protection plan, because i recieved it broke, there is nothing they can do, and was no reason for the protection plan, walmart refunded the 22 dollars for that. But ive been waiting on return labels to be mailed to me, so i can even send the broken xbox 1 back. I recieved an email from antonline.com with an electronic label but i have no way to print it out, to even be able to send it back TO get a refund. Ive told them they last 3 times ive called i want my money back, to please send me labels so i can send this back to u. 1 month and 1 week ive dealt with this and it isn't right. Order # XXXXXXX-XXXXXX RMA# RXXXXXX antonline.com X-XXX-XXX-XXXX

Desired Outcome

Complete refund. I purchased another xbox instead of getting this broken one replaced, after i realized this was gonna be a longer process to get a refund.C

You were issued a return authorization and sent a return label. We cannot issue a refund without the item being returned.

Issue was never resolved... That's the shit that boils my blood. Game Spot should not promote these assholes. It's abominable.

". I recieved an email from antonline.com with an electronic label but i have no way to print it out,"

That is how online returns are handled. Surely dude could have found some way to print the labels.

No, it's a shitty one. Granted, shit happens. I get that but when you KNOW the person isn't making it up and you still give them a hard time, that's bullshit. And the only reason GS did a write up on them is because it was reported on Forbes first and even the guy that did the write up hinted that they sound fishy.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/davidthier/2020/10/12/ps5-and-xbox-series-xs-pre-orders-new-stock-coming-october-13-when-and-where/#5862e4041c66

I'm just trying to save a few people some grief is all. I know we argue about consoles and all but in the end, we're all gamers and nobody likes getting hustled out of their hard earned cash.

@Litchie: Its not gonna be for awhile, and defenitly not a casual stroll into the store when it releases, unless when he said he'll just walk into a store and get one he meant camp outside a store for a week to get one.

This bundle is not even saving you money anyway if the games are gonna be $70 each and so are Dualshock 5s. That's $500 for the console plus $280 equaling $780, the asking price of the bundle.
