An email to Media Markt & Saturn customers has currently clouded the wait for the PS5 launch on November 19th. It is no longer excluded that pre-orderers will no longer receive their next generation consoles on time on the day of publication. According to the dealers, the reason is the very high demand.
And here is the email that many of you have received:
If you were wondering if you could have completed your pre-order too late, we can rest assured here. The GamePro editors themselves, but also many of our readers, who were able to place an order shortly after the pre-order started, are also interested.
So it doesn’t seem to matter if you pre-ordered at 12pm or a few hours later. It therefore appears that Media Markt and Saturn generally want to protect themselves with this mail.
The reasons for the possible postponement are meanwhile unclear. It is true that we are talking about a very high demand that alone cannot or should not be decisive. Without speculating, we asked Sony for a statement but also Media Markt. As soon as we receive new information, we will update the message.
No PS5 sales on site
As announced yesterday, the PS5 will not be on dealership shelves at launch, it will be sold purely online. According to Sony, the reason is a protective measure due to the corona pandemic. However, those who have selected “pick-up in the market” can continue to do so. You can read more about the subject here:
