PS5 pre-orders in chaos as Microsoft makes cheeky dig

PS5 fans have understandably been stressed after the major announcement yesterday, which revealed the price and release date of the console.

The next-gen Sony console became available online to pre-order at major UK retailers this morning – but fans didn’t have much warning.

Fans were left devastated after the upcoming PS5 “sold out in minutes”, and to be fair they didn’t have much time to prepare.

Now Microsoft has made a cheeky dig at the whole situation.

Microsoft let gamers know exactly what time pre-orders go live for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.

The tweet reminded Xbox fans of the September 22 pre-order date, and the worldwide launch in 36 countries on November 10.

But the tweet also included a reassurance that Xbox will “let you know the exact time pre-orders start for you soon.”

This came after Sony held its PS5 showcase event, where it revealed the release date for the next-gem console.

While it also unveiled upcoming games such as Hogwarts Legacy – it didn’t mention pre-orders.

Understandably, fans were confused after Geoff Keighley tweeted: “per Sony, #PlayStation5 pre-orders will be available starting TOMORROW at select retailers.”

Sony confirmed the tweet a few minutes later, but still gave no more information about when pre-orders would go live.

This sent the internet ablaze when the pre-orders actually started coming out.

The PS5 is set to cost £449.99 in the UK.

It will be released on November 12 in USA, Japan, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea, while in the UK it will be released a week later on November 19.
