A PlayStation news site for fans says Kohl’s Corporation (NYSE: KSS) left thousands of customers hanging when PlayStation 5 console bundles quickly sold out at its online store during the weekend.
What Happened: “Kohl’s unexpectedly listed PlayStation 5 consoles for sale,” reported the site Pushsquare.com. “Thousands of people purchased a system from the store, but some of those orders are now being cancelled.”
The consoles were bundled with a DualSense controller and a copy of a Spider-Man game, for a price of $639.99, according to Pushsquare.
Black Friday In A Pandemic: More such disappointments are likely as the much-anticipated next generations of Sony Corp‘s (NYSE: SNE) PlayStation and its competitor, Microsoft Corporation‘s (NASDAQ: MSFT) Xbox, hit the markets in time for Black Friday sales. This year, the holiday shopping frenzy is happening amid tightening COVID-related rules that are keeping people at home with plenty of time on their hands. Demand is likely to remain very high.
