The product entries for the Playstation 5 and its accessories have disappeared on Amazon. The new console will likely reappear under a new product number shortly. In the course of the upcoming PS5 Showcase on September 16 at 10 p.m., this could be a concrete indication of the early start of the pre-order phase.
Looking at their preferred sales platform every day, many PS5 disciples this morning greeted just a blank page with the note: "The web address you entered is not a functional page on our website." So Amazon had them all Product entries for the Playstation 5 and the PS5 accessories removed from the shop. Incidentally, the entries have not only disappeared from Amazon in Germany, but also from Amazon UK, France and other offshoots of the online retailer. This approach is not new. Most products that disappear for a short time from the shop reappear very quickly under a new product number. The time of the disappearance is of course interesting, because tonight Sony will reveal news about first-party titles and hopefully also information about pre-orders, price and release of the Playstation 5 in the PS5 Showcase Livestream from 10 p.m.
Whether that means right after the PS5 (buy now ) Showcase the pre-order starts, but can be doubted. Sony had with the Registration campaign in the PSN in the USA already indicated that one would prefer to give the potential buyers some time in advance and not start a pre-sale of the PS5 from one minute to the next. Whether this ultimately ensures more fairness and really everyone who is interested will actually get a PS5 for the release is still not certain. Just recently, Bloomberg reported that Playstation 5 production had been cut from 15 million units to 11 million units at launch. Meanwhile has Sony denies these claims.
