The launch of a new generation is usually accompanied by a couple of drawbacks. However, this year has been particularly upsetting. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, not many people claimed a PS5, and those who did perhaps did not receive their piece of hardware on time, or They were even surprised to see something else, except their expected console.
As you may know, yesterday, November 19, the PS5 was finally released globally. However, not everyone was able to enjoy their console on day one. We already told you about the assault on a truck full of this hardware in Chile. Now, UK shoppers report that Amazon has shipped toys, food and everything but the PS5.
So went to open my PlayStation 5 that I ordered from @AmazonUK and found this! Some one has replaced it with rice! I wish I was joking! Pls RT! pic.twitter.com/VcSNce4Zgo

So, @AmazonUK looks like someone has stolen my (day late) PS5. Right outer box, wrong item. Where can I get help? @AmazonHelp @PlayStationUK pic.twitter.com/qBIZ3RHl1I

The exact same thing happened to me, I got a George Foreman grill!
Looked like the box had been opened at some point aswell.
Now I can’t get a replacement because there is no stock anywhere in the UK even though I pre-ordered it 2 months in advance! pic.twitter.com/Cmg3BzVhvg

According to Eurogamer, several UK stores have had problems with PS5 pre-sales, and many users don’t have their console yet. In related topics, Sony is already preparing an answer for the Xbox Game Pass. Similarly, the PS5 outsold the Switch in sales in Japan.
