The PS2-style Sony PlayStation 5’s fantastic success story ends in failure: all orders canceled



A team of enthusiasts SUP3R5, literally a couple of days ago, began pre-sales of the special edition of the Sony PlayStation 5 game console, which became an instant hit. However, the story of the fantastic success of the PS2-style Sony PlayStation 5 ended in failure.

The team had to cancel all orders for the PlayStation 5 Retro Inspired and a similarly styled DualSense controller. On their official Twitter page, the developers reported the following:

Last night our team began to receive real threats to their security. We take these threats seriously. We are not ready to risk the safety and well-being of our team, as well as the potential consequences that can lead to your order. “

Moreover, even the Twitter page itself was subsequently removed. It is not yet clear who these threats came from – from disappointed buyers who did not get the console, or from Sony lawyers. In any case, the SUP3R5 team promised to return all the money to those who placed orders.

Recall that the entire batch of PlayStation 5 Retro Inspired was sold out in less than 20 minutes. As the creators of the project noted, they are “horrified” by the level of demand – in total, 54 thousand applications from users were submitted, which is a couple of orders of magnitude more than the planned volume of supplies.
