Apparently some people on Twitter are saying they got theirs from DHL/Argos despite receiving an email saying it was delayed until tomorrow. 
 

There’s still a minuscule bit of hope!

 

Mine has said delayed all day on the tracking. It's just turned up.

Just popping my head in to wish you all a happy release day with your new machines! Sorry to all of those who've had trouble getting their console. My launch day is next Thursday and I'm somewhat nervously eying up Amazon at the moment as that's who I went with.

 

Anyway, hope you all get your consoles soon. Been a pretty tough year for everyone - think we are all due a well-earned bit of fun and excitement :).

If this shitshow is anything to go by, they've sold far more PS5s as a pre-order than they've actually got confirmed stock of. It's the only explanation for their weaselly "Due to high demand" customer service tweets.

 

There's no 'high demand'. There's the exact demand they foresaw, based on the number of consoles they sold as pre-orders.

My only console pre-order with Amazon. And my last. Absolute bunch of twats.

 

After being assured on chat it was still coming today by 10pm (at six pm and not being dispatched) the guy tried to refund me and cancel the order!!!! Cut to me to screaming at him not to - just update on when I would get it. He couldn’t even tell me which warehouse in the world it was located, let alone when it might turn up. So fuck knows. Amazon certainly don’t.


Amazon really are the pits at this pre order stuff. 
 

Did Game deliver for people in the end? That’s who I have my PS5 order with. Don’t fancy this shit again.

The Amazon’s algorithm is a mother fucker tho! It’s possible that it went crazy as a reaction to the pre-order demand and requested an overly inflated quantity of consoles which Microsoft were unable to supply, then had to try and cut back the Amazon order as best they could using the allocation available.

In that case it's still their fuckup. Microsoft won't have just told them they had infinite stock to supply on launch day. If Amazon's algorithm decided to go crazy and request more than Microsoft allotted them, and Amazon sold that many as preorders, they'd have known well before now that they couldn't meet the demand. 

 

Either way it's not "because of high demand" like it's something unexpected. They've known for months how many consoles they sold. It's not like they've just turned up at Microsoft's warehouse today with a shopping list that says "4000 Series X" but there's only 250 in stock.

I doubt it's that. I think they probably just screwed up the "getting the consoles out mid-week" when it's not prime week: they're relatively heavy bits of kit, and there's a lot of them being shipped out.
