Then leave it "shipiment pending". What is the point of changing it to preparing to ship for that to actually just mean shipment is still pending. More importantly, why charge my card for a shipment that is still pending? they coulda done that a long time ago. The major point is not when the PS5 is coming but the charge with warning especially for those of us who got a pre order in the second wave.
I sure agree with you, but not always company do what makes sense to us. But yes it could mean they were able to move you to wave 1.
No company should charge your card until the order has shipped/dispatched.
From what I learnt in Brazil you pay your pre-order as soon as you make it even if 6 months before shipping.
