Sony Screw Up Pre Orders For New PS5 More Like 2021 For New Console
Sony who screwed up their preorder program for their new Playstation 5 have been forced to apologise after tens of thousands of consumers were nobbled trying to secure a pre-order.
Now the Japanese Company has apologised claiming that they will release more consoles to pre-order “over the next few days”.
In a message on its social media channels, the company acknowledged the pre-order system “could have been a lot smoother”, adding that even more consoles “will be available through the end of the year”.
“Let’s be honest: PS5 preorder’s could have been a lot smoother. We truly apologize for that,” Sony said in a tweet posted on the official Twitter channel earlier today. “Over the next few days, we will release more PS5 consoles for preorder – retailers will share more details.
Complaining consumers are now being urged to contact the likes of JB Hi Fi “speak with (your) local retailer regarding pre-order availability” they said.
Most retailers that ChannelNews has spoken to claim the bulk of stock will not be available until 2021,”
Consumers are also being warned to avoid eBay scalpers selling new games for the PS5 and the new consoles.
The recommended retail of $749 for the Physical Edition and $599 for the Digital Edition are not set to be discounted by retailers who are looking to take margin on the sales of the sought-after consoles.
Currently all pre order stock has been allocated in Australia.
