Sony offered a pre order for their new PS5 console. The mess reminded me of the NVIDIA fiasco. Sony’s Playstation portal evidently crashed due to the traffic.
Earlier Sony mentioned that production problems resulted in fewer consoles being available which probably lead to the rush to secure one.
It seems that short supply of a product in face of high demand is becoming all too common. It seems that hardly a day goes by where something else has run out. Product launches are becoming a joke as more people are buying things like game consoles as they are stuck at home.
