Although many retailers in the West have chosen to cancel all in store sales and opening days due to Covid-19, it seems Japan is still going to allow customers to pick theirs up in store.
Even during current nationwide lockdown 2 in the UK the physical stores (Game, Smyths, Argos etc) are opening as a click and collect service to honour the pre-orders. Japan has done very well with the virus, mask culture has helped a lot.
Amazon Canada certainly isn't.
Got my ps5 will hook it up later
Same here in Australia. There are still a few shops where you can pick one up from the store and i was lucky enough to secure one. I know online is the future, but for electronics and things that are breakable, i would much rather pick it up in person with the delivery guys these days that throw parcels around without a care, Ive had way too many damaged items.
They could've done curbside or reservations to pick up in store and limit how many ppl come in at a time like this Japan too and been safe for covid. Online to home makes it easier for bots.
For U. S.
