PS5 restock planned for black friday
With the upcoming PlayStation 5 releasing on November 12th like Amazon explained “delay in delivery due to external factors”
Next PS5 Restock Planned For Black Friday At GameStop, Walmart
Right now, the PS5 is now sold out everywhere online. With launch day behind us, gamers still looking to buy the next-gen console are likely wondering when they will be able to buy the PS5 next. If pre-orders are already delayed what will be with stocks for new orders after November 12. Retailers expect the PS5 will be back in stock on Black Friday 2020 but it looks like only few consoles will be available on November 27th in all major retailers.
PS5 Official Announcement
Sony said on their official website following statement: “The launch of the PlayStation 5 console on November 12 (or November 19, depending on your region) is almost upon us! In the interest of keeping our gamers, retailers, and staff safe amidst COVID-19, today we are confirming that all day-of launch sales will be conducted through the online stores of our retail partners.
No units will be available in-store for purchase on launch day (November 12 or November 19, depending on your region) – please don’t plan on camping out or lining up at your local retailer on launch day in hopes of finding a PS5 console for purchase. Be safe, stay home, and place your order online.
Gamers who have pre-ordered for pick-up at their local retailer should still be able to do so at their designated appointment time, under the retailer’s safety protocols. Please confirm the details with your local retailer.”
Pre orders delayed
Customers are getting frustrated by online resellers lack of info about delivery dates or what is causing PS5 late order arrivals. Packages are getting prepared with no exact tracking available.
Online resellers are giving different excuses like “Due to external factors the cargo movement is affected & hence, the delivery date of your order is revised. Request you to wait for further notifications on your order.” or “Please wait till the revised estimated delivery date for the delivery of your order.” but all of them are not giving any exact info what is going on with pre-orders of Playstation 5.
PS5 pre-order 2 - 5 days delivery delay
Playstation tweeted statement: “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.”

PS5 Update - November 12th release date arrived
Playstation 5 update – November 12th release date arrived with empty “shelves” at all major online retailers. Rest of the world is also in bad situation with November 19th sale start date. Looks like Sony underestimated the expected demand for the PS5. Good news is that other major competitors are also in delay with their product delivery.
