PS5 Preorder Info: More Console Preorders Available Tomorrow

In the wake of the announcement of the PS5 launch date and price points, the long, tense search for a preorder has begun. Launching November 12 at $500 for the standard console and $400 for the digital edition, the PS5 went up for preorder right after the recent PS5 event, and since then, stock has sold out at all major retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop, and Target.

GameStop had a second wave of PS5 preorders available to preorder on September 25, both online and in stores. Once again, the retailer had a virtual queue. Multiple GameSpot staff members waited in the queue for more than an hour without any success, so online preorders apparently sold out very quickly once again.

Verizon is about to launch preorders for the weird LG Wing smartphone

Verizon is boasting that it will be the first wireless carrier in the United States to offer LG’s strange new Wing smartphone, a model that features two displays with a pivoting arrangement. If you’re nostalgic for old school phones that had hidden, sliding keyboards, it’s easy to see the LG Wing’s appeal — you can get all of the benefits of swiping on a small keyboard with the visual real estate of landscape mode.

If you’ve been using mobile phones long enough, there’s a good chance that at one point in time, you used a phone that had a physical keyboard. These phones differed from traditional candy bar-style phones by offering a full miniature QWERTY keyboard hidden behind the display and accessible via hinges. A full keyboard made it easier to type out text messages and emails.

Of course, society soon transitioned to touchscreens, which have many of their own

And while the Amazon site did seem to be in somewhat better working order most of the time than its online rivals, if you did manage to pre-order a next-gen console from there, you have probably been unsettled by a recent email you’ve gotten from them:

“We’re contacting you about your order of (PlayStation 5/Xbox Series X/S) to let you know in advance that you may not receive this item on the day it is released due to high demand. We are making every effort with the supplier to procure more inventory. We will provide additional updates once more information becomes available.”

Despite advance notice, a set time, and links set up for all of the retailers who would be selling the Xbox Series X and Series S today, trying to pre-order Microsoft’s next-gen console has been a massive headache.

Pre-orders in the U.S. were set to start at 11:00 a.m., which is also about the time when store pages for the Xbox Series X across the internet, including Microsoft’s own, began crashing. Target would let you pre-order the console but then said your cart was empty when you tried to check out. Walmart seemed to be a go, but, by the time I was able to fill out my shipping and payment information, it said the console was sold out.
