Amazon has been a hub for companies to launch their new devices and gadgets and get them on pre-order. Similar to other companies the new Xbox Series X and Playstation 5 will also be available for preorder on Amazon. Amazon has been much better at handling pre-order than its competitors and has also been one of the best choices for many users. Now for all the users who have made the pre-order for the next generation console may have received the following e-mail that does not seem to be good news.
The email mentions that “We’re contacting you about your order of (PlayStation 5/Xbox Series X/S) to let you know in advance that you may not receive this item on the day it is released due to high demand. We are making every effort with the supplier to procure more inventory. We will provide additional updates once more information becomes available.” It is not uncommon for the online retailers to miss the launch day delivery, however, it seems that the pandemic might be affecting their delivery and sales as to what they used to do before.
Also, since the supply chain for any products has been severely affected due to the pandemic, it might be a reason behind the delay. Amazon has confirmed that it will soon send an email to the customer stating as to when the delivery will be sent to them, but they have not specified any timeline for that. The only thing the users can do right now is to wait as standing in a queue outside the shop is not an option anymore.
