The Game website crashes due to the number of accesses to reserve PS5
GAME stores have reported that their website has been down due to the launch of new units for sale of PS5. Reserves have collapsed due to demand.
Today is the day, PlayStation 5 has hit stores. It seems incredible that after so long waiting for news about the console, it has already arrived. However, PS5 faces a special launch, completely different from what her older sisters have experienced.
The atypical premiere of Sony’s next-generation console is due to the Covid-19 pandemic which has caused many problems at the distribution level. This is already being felt strongly in some of the most important commercial chains in Spain.
You will not be able to go to the stores to buy a PS5, as distribution problems have caused a considerable lack of stock. Those who pre-ordered the console in September will be able to receive it today. However, several national stores announced that today, November 19, new units available online would be launched.
Of course, demand has outstripped supply and stores like GAME they have not been able to cover with so many visits to their website. Users who were looking for a PS5 console today have seen how various websites have collapsed before this avalanche.
GAME Stores have reported this and are currently working to fix it. Of course, no one expected these problems to happen, but the coronavirus is seriously affecting society at all levels. Let’s hope PS5 at least brings out a few smiles.
Please, we ask for your patience, due to the volume of access the WEB is down and we are working on it so that it is solved as soon as possible, sorry for the inconvenience.

Just yesterday we reported that the PS5 consoles reserved from November 19 will be received on December 15. To calm your nerves a bit, you can’t miss Philly Series 5: the surreal ad that parodies PS5 and Xbox Series X to cook next-gen cheesecake.
