Gamers across the border find it very difficult to pre-order the new PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Following the new upcoming expo on the latest PS5 and Xbox Series X, gaming fans are anxiously desperate to get their hands on this new tech to try it.
The launching of both products are set to be unleashed next month, November.
However, gamers find it very difficult to get their hands on it as they are currently facing a shortage. Big international online tech sellers have run out of products.
Due to the fact that the world has been covered with Coronavirus pandemic, many countries have opted for a lockdown. What would be better when alone with PS5 and Xbox Series X?
Major online retailers like Amazon, Argos, Currys PC World and Game have failed to accept any orders for these two products (Xbox Series X and PS5) due to stock shortage. These retailers have announced that there is higher demand for these products ever since they brought them. They have asked their buyers to come back some times to check for extra updates.
Grace Gausden of “For This Is Money” said that, “while there is always much fanfare with new console launches, it is likely demand has been even higher this year thanks to the coronavirus pandemic – Nintendo and its Switch device, for example, saw a boom in sales as people looked for entertainment in lockdown.”
Eversince the pre-ordering of these products began on 17th September at 9:00am. With much anticipation, PS5 will be officially unveiled on 19th November, while Xbox Series X will be out on 10th of November. PS5 will at least cost buyers £349.99 and Xbox Series X, £249.
Gamers asking for Xbox Series X and PS5 have expressed their frustration on their various social media platforms. Because of frustration, gaming fans have been warned to be careful of scammers.
Gaming has become even more prevalent since lockdown this year as people looked for new ways to entertain themselves at home.
Due to desperation, gaming fans will likely try by all means to pre-order these products and this is where the scammers would intervene to fraud people. Economists will say, “The higher the demand, the higher the price.” Gamers have also been warned of black market.
Brands for these products (Sony and Microsoft) have said that the game would be best enjoyed after the maiden launch.
