Customers are angry and complaining about recent PS5 restocks. GameStop has had many PS5 restocks this month. It’s also had several Xbox Series X restocks. And these restocks have provided many PlayStation and Xbox gamers with next-gen consoles. However, a lot has also gone wrong for the retailer. Not only are bots and resellers continuing to gobble up supply, but orders are being cancelled. In other words, even if you manage to beat the bots, beat the site crashes, and beat the millions of PlayStation fans trying to secure an order as well, it may be cancelled for a number of reasons.
On top of this, it seems GameStop’s supply can’t fulfill their orders. Customers are complaining that consoles they were told they were getting weeks ago aren’t showing up, meanwhile, in some cases, the retailer is revealing customers they won’t be getting their console until April 2021.
It’s been a failure. And it’s been a problem for other retailers as well, including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and Amazon. However, right now it’s GameStop that is trending on Twitter, and this is partially because users are making GameStop jokes about stimulus checks, but it’s also because there are many angry GameStop customers taking to the social media platform to vent their frustration.
