Foreign media WMPU reported that British retailers will ship PS5 games 7 days before users purchase next-generation game consoles next month.
According to Stealth Optional news, people have noticed that Amazon, GAME and other British retailers will release games on November 12, which is Sony’s next-generation PS5 console in the US.
PS5’s first games including “Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales”, “Azabuzai Adventure”, “Devil’s Soul” and other games will arrive without hardware. Basically, these PS5 games cost 69.99 pounds (about 616 yuan).
Players in the United States, Japan, New Zealand and other countries and regions will buy the PlayStation 5 on November 12, while the PS5 release date in the United Kingdom and other European countries will have to wait until November 19.
The move by brick-and-mortar retailers to start shipping on the US launch date is likely due to the increase in sales of digital games compared to previous generations. When the PS5 store goes live on November 12, all these games can be pre-ordered digitally, and retailers need to guarantee customers’ physical versions at the same time.
Naijatechnews is informed that this is in sharp contrast with the upcoming Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. These two independent hardware SKUs will also be available for global sales on November 10th, even if the brand’s reputation is extremely high in Japan. The same is true in low areas.
However, even by November 19th, the pre-orders of Sony PlayStation 5 may not be honored immediately, because many retailers have warned that low unit allocation will cause some customers to get their game consoles until next year .
