PS5: Amazon is not sure if it can deliver the console at launch

by Jerry

The PS5 is due to arrive in France on 19 November 2020. The console is regularly out of stock on merchant sites, and some of them fear that they will not be able to deliver the machine on D-Day. This is the case of Amazon, which has started to warn its customers.

A few days after Microsoft's announcements regarding its Xbox Series X and Series S, Sony took advantage of a new Playstation Showcase on Wednesday, September 16, 2020 to finally reveal the release date and the official price of PS5. Both consoles will be available from November 19, 2020, at €499 and €399.

The icing on the cake, the manufacturer ends its conference by opening the pre-orders of its machine. Of course, the most impatient players rushed to the merchant sites, and very quickly Boulanger, Micromania, Fnac, Cdiscount, Amazon and others found themselves overwhelmed by the requests.

As we write these lines, PS5 pre-orders are out of stock everywhere! Of course, resellers will be replenished gradually, but for now it is very difficult to get a console. If you're one of the lucky ones who have already pre-ordered their PS5 on Amazon, there's a chance the console won't be delivered to your home on launch day, November 19th.

Towards delivery in 2021?

Indeed, the e-commerce giant has sent an email to many customers. And this email is not very pleasant to read:"We contact you about your Playstation 5 order to inform you in advance that you may not receive this item on the day of its release due to high demand. Amazon will do everything possible to provide you with the item as quickly as possible once it is released," the company said.

The news has enough to infuriate players who had just rushed to Amazon to buy their console quickly and secure a delivery for November 19. At the moment, Amazon is the only retailer to have expressed reservations about the delivery date. It is not impossible for other sites to do the same if the demand becomes too high.
