Same with ps5 not everyone who pre orders will get one. Most stock will be available to buy on launch day but it's likely you won't find an Xbox or ps5

It isn’t just that. This article is basically a lie. Microsoft has not started informing retailers. Sony did not start informing retailers. It isn’t retailers. It isn’t plural. It’s one seller that took reservations before dates were even announced and overextended themselves. Now this article is miss informing the public and making it look as if it’s multiple outlets and both Microsoft and Sony or failing to meet established allocations. That isn’t true.

Same site wrote the same article with an identical headline about the same outlet doing the same thing with the PS5.

Completely agree, exactly the same headline and it is literally exactly this. How does this stuff get through? Angers me greatly.

Sony has notified now than 3 retailers that they might be short. Just fyi

morganfell1391d ago

Not as of the time they wrote the article. And they didn’t mention that. In the PS5 article they discussed Amazon possibly delaying but did not link it to Sony being the reason. You should link those instances where it’s actually Sony notifying a retailer. FYI.

Otherwise I will take your silence as, yeah I hear that somewhere or I made that up.
