It wouldn't be fair to say that PlayStation 5 preorders turned into a fiasco, but they weren't smooth either, and Sony are well aware of that, promising more to come very soon.
To be fair though, this is not all Sony's fault, as retailers just couldn't stop themselves from trying to get ahead of the competition and open preorders a bit early. Unfortunately, they tend to do so thinking that Sony have a billion PS5 units just waiting for them to make a buck.
In reality, however, things are a bit different, which left Sony in a tight spot and so the company had to apologise over PlayStation 5 preorder ruckus and give actual information on what to expect in the coming days and months.
"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", they wrote.
One cannot help but appreciate Sony's honesty in the matter, especially since they weren't the ones that caused it. Well, that's unless you consider manufacturing one of the most sought-for devices in the world a problem. And if that's a problem, then please, Sony - by all means keep making them problems.
The company pointed out that more PlayStation 5 units will be available through the end of the year, so Sony fanboys won't be left wanting for sure.
It has recently been reported that the production of PlayStation 5 system-on-chip (SoC) components has hit some snags, and that unsatisfactory yields caused the company to slash the number of consoles expected to hit the market. Thankfully for fans, Sony quickly refuted those rumours, insisting that those rumours are false and that their plans are on-track as initially planned.
