Microsoft Mocked Sony For Confusing Fans About PS5 Preorder Details

Sony said it would post details about PS5 preorders but fans ended up confused. Microsoft didn't miss the chance to mock Sony and promote its console.

Last Wednesday, Sony announced the availability details of its new gaming console PlayStation 5. At the end of the event, the company revealed the pricing and release date of the hardware and it tweeted that preorders would begin on Thursday but did not mention other essential details.

Ironically, just a few weeks ago the Japanese told fans that preorders of the PS5 will be well-detailed so that gamers wouldn’t be surprised. However, the joke was on buyers who looked to get a console as early as possible. Many retailers didn’t wait a day and began taking orders for the PS5 right after the event, which instantly depleted their stockpiles. If you had tried to order a PS5 on Thursday, you would have got nothing, and you couldn’t have told if the PlayStation 5 has already run out or if the preorders have been delayed.

Not wasting this chance, Microsoft took advantage of the incident and tweeted about its Xbox Series X preorders start next week. It didn’t forget to mock Sony in its tweet.

Both the Xbox Series X and Series S can be pre-ordered starting September 22, and they will be launched in 36 countries in early November, according to the tweet. “Don’t worry – we’ll let you know the exact time preorders start for you soon,” the company tweeted.

Nevertheless, the fact that the PS5 stock ran out instantly suggests that the console will be short in supply this holiday season.

Besides, it appears that gamers still prefer the PlayStation 5. Sony’s gaming consoles dominate in terms of sales, bought by far more people than Xbox models over the last 7 years. A lot of gamers will be looking forward to upgrading their PlayStation. The PS5 also has a competitive advantage over its Xbox rival with its upcoming game lineup, which is perfect for gamers who look for exclusives.

However, the Xbox Series S is a very good deal to pass even though it’s not as powerful as the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition. Furthermore, Microsoft will allow for purchasing in installment in several markets through the Xbox All Access plan.
