Sony apologizes for pre-order chaos for PlayStation 5


This week’s revelation of the price and release date for the PlayStation 5 was followed by total chaos and a lot of frustration among those who had hoped to pre-order the console. Now Sony has apologized for the situation.

That was in July that Sony promised to inform well in advance about details about pre-orders. When the PlayStation 5 date was unveiled on September 16, however, the company had not yet said anything, but suddenly stores around the world began accepting orders,

The introductory console parts were quickly intercepted by those lucky enough to be online when pre-sales began. Everyone else had to sadly realize that they probably missed the chance to get a console on launch day – that is, despite Sony’s promises that it would not be like that.

This is what Sony now regrets, in a statement on Twitter. At the same time, the company announces that more consoles will be put up for sale in the next few days.

– Let’s be honest: Pre-ordering PlayStation 5 could have gone much better. We are sincerely sorry for that. Over the next few days, we’ll be making more PlayStation 5 consoles available for pre-order. The stores will share more details. More PlayStation 5 consoles will also be available towards the end of the year.

Exactly what this means is admittedly unclear, and several stores are already saying that new orders may not arrive until 2021. PlayStation 5 will be launched on 19 November in Norway.
