This is standard Business practise whether it’s consoles or the latest iPhones or Samsung Galaxy device.I admire your optimism but what is different than the PS4?
Add a global ongoing pandemic and I think anyone not sat on a pre order may struggle.
Preorders always sell out, but weeks later more become available.
Ive never experienced anything different when it comes to major launches for electronic products last 5years.
I’ve missed out on opening day preorders for Apple Watch and iPhones but always been able to pick one up at launch whether that’s from local Apple store or Curry’s/Argos/EE etc.
There’s no way all the PS5’s inventory has gone in 48hrs and there’s nothing left even for launch day.
This 1st wave is for the early adopters like me and many others, who likes to get an order in as soon as a preorder opens.
I ordered a PS5 via Amazon 9.04am yesterday, couldn’t get any accessories as all sold out within 20mins if not less.
Then literally 12.10 today I was able to order a 3D pulse headset.
So yes I am optimistic going by my own personal experiences.
