PlayStation 5 will officially hit shelves next week (November 12) in some markets, but Sony decided to give a big warning to fans to avoid queuing in stores on that day.
As the Covid-19 epidemic has yet to settle, Sony said that retailers will not sell any PlayStation 5 in stores on launch date, according to Neowin. That means, if users plan to buy the PlayStation 5 on the day it launches, they need to pre-order it online.
Users can still pick up PlayStation 5’s pre-ordered in the store, but must use designated pickup areas established by each retailer to keep customers safe. While the console will launch on different days depending on where the user lives (some markets will have it on November 12, while others on November 19, this measure will apply to all). area.
What Sony doesn’t make clear is when users will start seeing consoles on store shelves. This information has not been given by Sony, so the aforementioned notice simply prevents customers from waiting in line at stores to buy the device in the usual way.
Sony isn’t the only company to release consoles next week when the Xbox Series X and Series S will go on sale by Microsoft a bit earlier, on November 10.
