Sony has just tweeted an apology for its misaligned preorder system which took gamers by surprise — leaving many without a secured PlayStation 5 console. Taking a form closer to a Quickstrike sneaker release, the console was announced last Wednesday that it would be available for preorder the next day but was launched just hours later on Walmart — leading to other retailers opening their preorder links which caused a frenzy of preorders by quick-handed gamers and resellers alike.

In other gaming news, the Nintendo 3DS has been discontinued.
