Heading into this holiday season Sony is prepping to release their highly anticipated Playstation 5. The next-gen console will be the most sought-after item this holiday season with preorders selling out within seconds like a limited-edition sneaker release. Amazon is already emailing customers stating they oversold the units they would receive and the customers may not have the console on launch day. Walmart has thrown its hands in the air and refunded some customers so they can make other accommodations. When the two biggest retailers in America are having issues meeting demand you can already imagine the chaos that’s coming when it’s actually released November 12th.
