Another new restock of the PlayStation 5 took place at Target early this morning. The new sale process was divulged by the retail giant ahead of time, and as such, most customers looking to buy the hardware were prepared in advance. Sadly, despite being so prepared, and even completing the purchasing process, Target ended up canceling a fair number of orders that it released today.
As soon as this new PS5 restock kicked off today at Target, social media began to fill up with impressions from customers who were trying to complete a transaction. Per usual, Target's website immediately started to experience various errors, leading a number of customers to be unable to even add the PS5 to their cart. And even if they did get this far, others were never able to finish the buying process later on in the transaction.
By far the worst thing that happened to a number of customers though came about in the hours after this PS5 restock. While some were able to cop a PS5 when the sale began this morning, as time passed, Target began sending out emails informing customers that their order had been canceled. No further explanation was given by Target for this, but it led to a number of buyers being greatly unhappy. Worst of all, this isn't the first time Target has done this, showing that it seems to be a new trend at the storefront.

Target Should Adopt Sony's Sale Model
@Target Here's an idea. Why not just send out invites to ppl in the areas where a Target has a PS5 in stock? Kind of like Sony so it's not a waste of time & sleep. This way THOSE ppl have a legitimate chance at getting it. Set a checkout timer of 3 minutes b4 someone else gets it— renee gomez (@Failingatthis) November 19, 2021

Learn From Walmart's Failure
@Target I really thought you would've learned from @Walmart and their piss poor handling of their PS5 drops. You know how hot of an item that is, and you can't handle the amount of people trying to check out at one time? That was your chance to show you were better pic.twitter.com/HIBUWKpTnO— Chelly Cole (@KCchamps2015) November 19, 2021
