    17 Tweets About PS5 Preorders That Are Painfully Hilarious

    The pain is real.

    Last night, the internet went wild when the PlayStation 5 became available for preorder — a whole day earlier than expected. Sony originally said that preorders for the PS5 would start on Thursday, but retailers like Best Buy made preordering available Wednesday evening, and the console sold out in no time.

    Sad day :'(

    The PS5, which officially launches in November, has been highly anticipated by gamers everywhere for quite some time now, so you can imagine that this plot twist took many people by COMPLETE SURPRISE.

    So @PlayStation was like “oh we’ll give everyone plenty of heads up about preorders for PS5” Today: “here’s the price and release date, preorders start tomorrow!” Preorders sold out everywhere already before 10pm.

    Hearts are broken.

    Of course, there were those who were lucky enough to snag one.

    Just staring at my confirmed #PS5 pre-order email like a baby’s sonogram this morning.
