Demand for a new game console from Sony, as expected, turned out to be a stir, but the company, unexpectedly, was not ready for it.
The fact is that retailers have received from Sony very limited quantities of consoles. In some online stores, pre-order was active and closed again, sometimes the period of open pre-order lasted, literally, a minute. Some retailers have started to warn that the ordered game consoles will be delivered later than the open sales start day. For example, this is what Amazon did. On a wave of rush demand, the prices of resellers rose above 2 thousand dollars for one console.
Sony promptly reacted in the social network Twitter to the dissatisfaction of gamers who are eager to quickly get the game console in their hands:
Let’s be honest, PS5 pre-order had to go much smoother. We sincerely apologize for that. In the next few days, we will release additional PS5 consoles for pre-orders. And even more PS5 will be available by the end of the year.
Users in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea will be able to receive the console on November 12, and in other regions it will appear on the shelves on November 19. In the U.S., PlayStation 5 will cost 500 dollars, and the “digital” version will cost 400 dollars.
