Been having trouble preordering Sony’s PlayStation 5 console? Well, you may soon have better luck. PS5 preorders sold out rapidly, after a number of retailers unexpectedly began offering them on Wednesday. But Sony says it’ll release more of the consoles for preorder.
In a Saturday tweet, Sony said it would release the PS5s “over the next few days” and that retailers would provide specifics. The company also said more of the consoles would be available through the end of 2020.

Over the next few days, we will release more PS5 consoles for preorder – retailers will share more details.
