Shortly before “Black Friday”, there is great anger at the Saturn and Media Markt consumer electronics stores.

The reason: the new PS5.

There are terrifying offers on Ebay and Co.

  • Shortly after the release of the new

    PlayStation 5

    from Sony, many fans have to be put off.

  • Disappointed customers go

    hard

    with the consumer electronics stores

    Media Markt

    and

    Saturn

    .

  • Despite

    pre-orders

    , fans have to

    wait for

    their

    console

    - and are apparently inadequately put off.

  • Is the electronic gaming device still available this year?

    When

    "Black Friday"

    unlikely.

Update from November 25th, 3:45 p.m.:

Almost a week after the release of the

PlayStation 5

, many pre-orderers are frustrated because they have not yet been able to receive the desired new gaming device.

Overall, some retailers seem to have been surprised by the great demand for the Sony console, but there are also reports of mass

orders

from customers who

have bought

several

PS5s

only to be able to resell them at a

higher price

("scalping").

Meanwhile, bizarre advertisements are appearing on

Ebay

, where packaging for the new PlayStation can be purchased alone - and without content.

Apparently there are people who fall for this scam - because there are already bids for the corresponding advertisements - see here or here.

Or are the bidders aware that the corresponding offers with regard to the

PlayStation 5 are

only about the cardboard packaging?

In addition, there are also

Ebay offers for the PS5

with content - and these are currently provided with significantly higher prices than the new product costs in stores.

Terrifying offers are also circulating on other digital marketplaces, as users report on Twitter:

I hope this is a bad joke from @realMarktplatz ?!

Otherwise it would simply be a bottomless cheek.

Black Friday: Many fans are waiting for delivery - Media Markt and Saturn are fighting back

Original article from November 24th:

Munich - Seven years after the release of its predecessor, the

Sony PlayStation 5 is

available.

The new console promises game fans shorter loading times, better optics and smoother gameplay.

At the

moment

, however, many supporters are still waiting in vain for the

delivery of

their already ordered

PS5

.

The demand for the

fifth generation from

the Japanese manufacturer Sony seems extremely high - and Germany's

consumer

electronics stores are having problems keeping up with deliveries.

The companies

Media Markt

and

Saturn

, which

belong together, are facing

massive allegations on the Internet because many of the numerous pre-orders could not yet be served.

Our partner portal hna.de also reports on this.

It was announced last week that there would be delays.

It is now clear, however, that it can take until December before the goods will reach some customers.

Another thing that annoys the nation's gamblers: That they are apparently insufficiently informed about when they can

expect

the delivery of their new

PlayStation 5

.

So a case of failed corporate communication?

Saturn and Media Markt

responded to the increasing pressure

with a post on Facebook

.

Because thousands of console pre-orderers are still waiting for the long-awaited delivery - the hashtag

# WoBleibtMeinePS5 is

one of the most searched terms

in Twitter trends

.

Those people who have already ordered a PS5 are to be supplied successively over the next few days and weeks.

According to

Gameswirtschaft.de, anyone

who wants to buy

the

popular console

first and

has not yet placed an order

has a

bad chance of being able to gamble in 2020:

New PS5 from Sony: Saturn and Media Markt are forced to comment before Black Friday

Because

a real

shit storm has

broken in

since the official release of the PS5 via Saturn and

Media Markt

, the

dealers belonging

to

Media-Saturn-Holding

felt compelled to make the following statement: “Unfortunately, when the PS5 went on sale, we weren't able to provide everyone with a console directly.

But regardless of whether by delivery or for self-collection, we do our best to ensure that everyone gets their console as soon as possible.

The demand is very high and we are in close contact with the manufacturer in

order

to carry out

all

pre-orders

as quickly as possible

.

We want the console for all hobby gamers, for all pro gamers, for all of you. "

Hundreds of angry comments

have now

accumulated

under the post

.

Users express their displeasure about the fact that a lot of money was transferred in advance without having received anything in return: "I'm glad you were able to do business with our money for a few months and at the same time screw us up," someone wrote.

“As a long-standing customer of Saturn and Mediamarkt, I am immensely disappointed that customers are treated this way and that all service is missing.

You don't get any information about stocks, dispatched deliveries or delivery dates, ”explains another.

However, there are also a number of

opposing positions

- keyword affluent society: Are there

no major problems,

especially in times of

Corona

?

A Facebook user writes: “Sometimes it's pretty embarrassing how some people behave here.

Is there nothing more important at the moment than getting excited about getting a "game console" a little later ???

It's really sad what luxury problems some have to struggle with here. "

Buy a PlayStation 5 on Black Friday?

Now supporters have to be very strong

New

PlayStation 5 orders

are apparently no longer possible this year.

This is also reported by our partner portal

ingame.de

.

Only large mail-order companies, chains and renowned specialist dealers are still

supplied

with the

PS5

by Sony

.

Smaller, unknown providers are therefore dubious offers.

"Absolutely every console is sold," said

Sony Interactive Entertainment

.

At least those who have already pre-ordered a console by mid-November are said to have a good chance of being able to

indulge in

gaming with the new

PlayStation by

Christmas

.

For the upcoming

“Black Friday” on November 27th, however

, the current development with regard to the

Sony PS5 means

: At least in Germany, no bargains can be made with the new console.

On the contrary: There are apparently various offers circulating on eBay as to how the new game console is priced above the current new price.

We are talking about amounts just under the thousand euro limit ... Here you can find out what the PlayStation 5 usually costs.

On the verge of the release of the PS5, it is not only Germany's consumer electronics stores that have problems.

The US giant Amazon is also having difficulties with delivery.

After all, X-Box fans get their money's worth, as

reported by ingame.de

in a Black Friday ticker.
