Warwick refuses PS5 request from fans on Twitter, delights fans everywhere


PlayStation 5 is one of the hottest products of the vacation season, as gamers are doing just about everything they can to get their hands on the next generation console. and even go so far as to ask Dionne Warwick.

Wednesday, the gospel singer (or rather a member of the gospel singer team) turned to social media to deny a supporter’s request to buy her a PS5, presumably for the holidays.

” To the person who tweeted to Ms. Warwick and asked for the PS5… She says no,” wrote Dionne Warwick’s official Twitter account on Wednesday night.

The account, which is managed by Ms. Warwick and her social team, began by compiling questions addressed to the 79-year-old singer after she posted a tweet on December 1. Warwick wrote: “I keep getting questions about my career. Others want me to tell stories about my life. Now is the time to ask me everything. I will collect my favorites and answer soon.”

While the Warwick account continues to collect questions, the singer of “That’s What’s What Friends Are For” answered some like “Will you be my aunt? – she says yes, by the way – to the now infamous PS5 request.

But the questions about the game console didn’t stop with the PS5 when author/actor Scott Chernoff jokingly asked if Ms. Warwick would get them an Atari 2600. The Warwick team replied in kind.

“We will not even discuss this with her. Just donate your Atari money to feed people in need. Thanks, Scott,” wrote the account with a link to Ms. Warwick’s hunger relief charity.

Asking Ms. Warwick for a PS5 may be a long shot – although we respect the Twitter user who fires his shot – but that’s because gamers are trying to get this highly desirable console and retailers can’t meet the demand.

The COVID 19 pandemic hasn’t helped players who tried to buy a PS5 because it has limited the number of units produced. In the case of the November 12 launch date, Sony announced that they would not sell consoles in the store.

While the aim was to prevent players from waiting in crowded queues for their chance to buy a PS5 from Best Buy, GameStop or another retailer, it forced them to try buying the console online, which created its own hurdles.

From the crash of the online retailers to the multitude of bots blowing up the consoles in record time, it hasn’t been easy for gamers to get a PS5 this year, which Sony hopes to correct soon.

Last week, the official PlayStation Twitter account announced that the PS5 was the biggest console launch to date and confirmed the high demand for the product.

“We would like to thank players around the world for making the PS5 our biggest console launch yet. The demand for the PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that additional PS5 inventory will be received by retailers before the end of the year – please stay in touch with your local retailers,” the account said.
