If video games are your bag – or if they have become more important in your life since we’ve all been spending a lot more time at home – you’re probably excited for the release of the PS5.

Playstation was being all kinds of considerate, giving everyone plenty of time and letting them know exactly when the preorder would go up – everyone deserves a fair shot, right?

A nice idea, but when retailers started to authorize preorders almost a full day early, the sh%t hit the fan, and only the lucky emerged unscathed.

Here are 15 hilarious reactions to the release – some happy, some sad, all frazzled.
