Current gen consoles are selling at staggering numbers and this fast-selling pace has led to GameStop canceling some PS5 and Xbox Series X orders.
Lately, more and more restocks are happening every day.
Generally, these restocks sell out in minutes if not seconds.
Consequently, that high demand sometimes obliterates retailers’ efforts to successfully fulfill each order.
Undoubtedly, GameStop has been unable to go through this high demand unscathed, canceling some PS5 and Xbox Series X orders in the process.
GameStop Cancels PS5 & Xbox Series X Orders
GameStop customers have yet again voiced their frustration on social media.
Notably, some customers stated they received GameStop PS5 order cancellations around two hours after placing it.
In this particular case, a Pro member got the membership just for the PS5 drop.
Unfortunately, GameStop’s system canceled the order two hours later.
As well, it seems this issue is not exclusive to PS5 orders.
Some gamers have also reported GameStop canceling Xbox Series X orders.
Particularly, this customer received a cancellation after GameStop’s problematic Halo Infinite Series X drop.
Moreover, the Xbox trend continued with another unfortunate gamer.
In particular, this order was a Far Cry 6 Xbox Series X bundle.
GameStop at some point, according to this gamer, stated the console was lost and refunded the order in full.
Gamestop Recent Restock and Order Issues
Pro members recently expressed how infuriated they were after GameStop’s most recent Halo Infinite Controller restock.
Also, many gamers experienced access denied errors on GameStop’s website during restocks.
Unquestionably, the order cancelation issue is somewhat more complicated.
Even with some tips and tricks on how to successfully buy your PS5 or Xbox Series X console on GameStop, this canceling issue is less avoidable.
Unfortunately, this all leaves us with a very important lesson.
The deal is not sealed until the console has shipped!
