PlayStation 5 (PS5) is still something too luxurious for most Vietnamese gamers. Since the time it was officially announced at the end of 2020, until now, PS5 is still a special scarce item of the world gaming village in general and the Vietnamese market in particular. It is not easy for gamers to have a PS5 in their hands at the present time, which is nearly a year and a half since the official launch date, let alone in 2020 or 2021.
Pandemic, scarce components and all sorts of reasons make PS5 “supply not enough demand”. That is the reason why even though there are still goods, the price of PS5 in the Vietnamese market has been pushed to a “hard to accept” price for most gamers. Of course, those who are willing to play will still accept to pay a higher cost than the announced price of about 5 – 6 million to experience early the most valuable console today. But for the majority of gamers, they don’t want that and they want to buy PS5 at the right price for the published price.
That’s why many people are always waiting for the official launch of PS5 in Vietnam market. But the number of machines is so limited that it can “fly colors” within a minute of opening for sale. Increasingly, Vietnamese gamers are running out of patience with pre-orders or PS5 sales in Vietnam.
It is not difficult to notice the discomfort, even indignation expressed in the comment lines at the PS5 sale opening post. As recently, at nearly midnight on April 14, an announcement to open the sale of genuine PS5 tomorrow, April 15 received negative feedback from a lot of gamers. Those are mostly unlucky people who have “lost” the legs of the previous sales and will most likely continue to be unlucky on the opening day tomorrow.
Many gamers are so annoyed that this is just a “traffic hook” article and a “reuse recovery” technique, but the quality of PS5 products for gamers is still a very small number compared to with what the actual needs of Vietnamese gamers. After all, for many different reasons, PS5 is still the most scarce item in the Vietnamese gaming village, and to get that machine at a “real” price is not/never an easy story. easy for the majority of players in Vietnam.
