Some customers who pre-ordered a PlayStation 5 via Amazon are receiving emails that warn them they may not get their console when the PS5 is officially released on November 12.
“We’re contacting you about your order of PlayStation 5 Console to let you know in advance that you may not receive this item on the day it is released due to high demand,” reads a copy of the email. “We’ll make every effort to get the item to you as soon as possible once released.”
The above text is taken from an email received by an Amazon customer who ordered the standard edition of the PS5, but we’ve seen a copy of a similar email that was sent to those who ordered the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. In fact, video game personality Geoff Keighley tweeted a copy of an Amazon email he recently received that informed him his PlayStation 5 Digital Edition console may not be delivered on launch day.
For what it’s worth, it doesn’t seem that everyone who ordered a PS5 via Amazon has received a similar email. While it’s possible (maybe even likely) that Amazon will send out more of these emails over the next few weeks, the fact that not everyone seems to have received this message yet would tend to suggest that this isn’t simply a precaution that all Amazon customers are receiving just in case the worst happens.
