Despite launching over a year ago, Sony’s latest gaming console still remains hard to grab for many fans thanks to supply chain and chip shortage issues. There were many instances in the past where pre-orders were cancelled as stores couldn’t keep up with the demand. Launched in two models, PS5 comes with 4K gaming support and is backwards compatible with PS4 as well. Industry insider Rishi Alwani speculates that deliveries for March 24th orders may happen by April 8th. There’s a banner up on ShopatSC offering details for the upcoming restock.
