Few had the chance to pre-order a PlayStation 5 in the past few days. Now Sony apologizes for the mess and promises to deliver supplies.
The current status of PS5 pre-orders is known to be chaotic: For example, if you want to pre-order a PlayStation 5 from Amazon or Media Markt / Saturn, look into the tube: The console is currently not available.
Sony apologizes and promises to replenish
The time window in which the PS5 could be pre-ordered from these and many other major retailers was so small that many players are now left empty-handed and accordingly disappointed.
Sony itself received particular criticism: the company promised in advance to clearly communicate the start of the pre-order phase. In fact, Sony announced the start of pre-orders on the night of September 17th, but just minutes before the start on Twitter, this came as a complete surprise to many and many others have not even noticed.
Now Sony apologized to the fans on Twitter:
Let's be honest: PS5 preorders could have been a lot smoother. We truly apologize for that.
Over the next few days, we will release more PS5 consoles for preorder - retailers will share more details.
And more PS5s will be available through the end of the year. pic.twitter.com/h1TaGsGBun

So Sony has recognized the gap and promises to make new consoles available to retailers. When exactly this will happen is still in the stars - but new devices are to be made available by the end of the year. Dealers will release details, according to Sony.
Fan reactions have varied, some are patient and waiting, others are shooting at the company or criticizing the retailers - and others are not complaining directly about the Playstation 5's unavailability, but about the behavior of some buyers who are now reselling their Playstation pre-orders , including “price hikes” via online platforms. The topic of buying bots is also pending, something similar already existed with the Nintendo Switch. What can we do? Waiting. Plus, fans need to visit their retailers regularly and check stock for the addition of the Playstation 5.
