In the tweet, that you can see below, the house of PlayStation admitted that the opening of pre-orders for the PlayStation 5 “could have been a lot smoother,” accompanying the admission with an apology.

The company also promised to release more stock for pre-orders “over the next few days,” with details that will come directly from retailers.

On top of that, more PS5 units will also be made available through the end of the year.

If you’re looking to pre-order your very own PS5, recently Sony announced both prices and release dates.

The standard edition will cost $499.99, €499.99, £449.99, or 49,980 yen while the Digital Edition is priced at $399.99, €399.99, £359.99, or 39,980 yen.

The first release date will be on November 12 in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and South Korea.

Everyone else will have to wait a little more: the console will launch in Europe and in the rest of the world on November 19.

On the other hand, if you’re looking to pre-order a next-gen Xbox console, you can find specific times depending on your region in our dedicated article.

Proud weeb hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long-standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality), MMORPGs, and visual novels are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans on Earth of the flight simulator genre.
