There will be no PlayStation 5 on sale in stores during 2020

If you’re planning to buy a PlayStation 5 later this year, 2020, and haven’t pre-booked the console, we’ve got some bad news. According to what is revealed, Sony is asking stores not to stock their new console and to only process orders that have arrived via pre-reservations.

The information was revealed by a Norwegian website which reveals that Sony is pushing stores not to stock, or to sell new consoles in store during the year 2020. The Japanese company only intends to make available units that sold online, which will be delivered directly to the home of the person who purchased them, or for in-store collection.

The reason seems more than logical, the company does not want to be associated with any euphoria that takes massive users to the stores, in order to acquire the PlayStation 5, and thus be associated with the spread of COVID-19.
As revealed, Sony has made it clear that stores that do not comply with demand could be punished with less stock in the future.

You shouldn’t see PlayStation 5 on store shelves in 2020

There is currently no information that stores have been asked to do this in other markets, but it makes no sense to ask retailers for such a thing in Norway and not to ask in other countries. , so it is believed that the same will apply to other markets.

The PlayStation 5 will be available (probably not in stores) from November 10 in some international markets, and from November 19, in the vast majority of other countries, including European countries, and obviously in Portugal.
