This might be a scenario the place not even Amazon but is aware of precisely what number of PlayStation 5 models it will likely be receiving, so the retailer is making an attempt to play it protected and warn individuals that there’s no assure of launch-day supply. Those customers will now be left with a option to make: you’ll be able to maintain the present preorder in place in hopes that Amazon will wind up with a robust provide and handle to hit the November 12th goal, or you’ll be able to strive your luck elsewhere.
