The release of the PS5 could be brought forward by a few days. Enough to allow Sony to come out at the same time as the Xbox and distributors to put back pre-orders more calmly.
Would Sony advance the release of the PS5? This is the new hypothesis that is starting to swell on the Internet. In particular, a communication from the German distributor Media Markt which announces to its customers a shipment of their PS5 from November 12.
In Europe, the release of the PS5 is still officially set for November 19. In most other countries, the date of November 12 has been chosen. If originally we were to be served a week late, Sony would have reviewed its plans to deliver its console to confined countries earlier. Indeed, the European market has at least Germany, the United Kingdom and France in countries confined at the beginning of November.

Department store announces earlier deliveries
In Germany and Switzerland, Media Markt sends an email to its customers announcing the delay in delivery to November 12, 2020. Several Internet users report the same comments on Twitter. It is stated therein that “The release of your Sony PlayStation 5 article has been postponed until November 12, 2020 by its manufacturer. “
Offering the console earlier would in particular make it possible to spread the click & collect discount, the only means authorized in France to recover an object in a non-essential trade. As a reminder, the PS5 was pre-ordered in 24 hours as much as the PS4 in 24 days. The expectation is therefore enormous on the part of the players who are impatient. In order not to experience a rush that would not stick with the social distancing currently imposed, a hasty exit would make it possible to streamline the discounts in store.
On Sony’s side, bringing forward the release date of the PS5 would not be ridiculous. Remember that it is not the only console to arrive in 2020. The Xbox Series S and X even come out on November 10. In the console war, these date stories matter.
Earlier this November 2, it was a Reddit user calling himself The_Need who reported on the social network the episode he experienced at his UK dealer: “GAME in UK asked me yesterday to come to the store and pre-pay for my PS5 so that I could ‘click & collect’ it on November 19th. I went to do this this morning and I was told the following: Sony told us to stop accepting prepayments as they could bring closer or delay the release date due to the UK lockdown, the France and Germany. “
Finally, he was able to return later following a comment in his post and prepay his console. The seller then told him that “Sony and Game have come to an arrangement and have discussed the details. “ Anyway, the most interesting is that there too we are talking about bringing the release date of the PS5 closer. The index beam becomes denser.
Can we get my PS5 pre-order?
On the side of French distributors, most of them say they are ready to honor the pre-orders of PS5. Online everything is fine. On the Amazon side, the stock has been secured and health measures have been taken accordingly so that the delivery goes smoothly. Fnac and Darty stores benefit from an exceptional measure in order to allow teleworkers to equip themselves with computer equipment. In-store pickup will be possible there. Same system at Micromania or Culture who have implemented new measures to collect their order on site.
For now, only supermarkets are still in the dark. The government has announced the closure of shelves of products deemed non-essential. The Carrefour, Auchan or Leclerc hypermarkets do not yet know whether their video game departments will be affected by this decree.
