Prediction: Nvidia's website will be down for most people when the 3080 drops this Thursday due to the sheer number of people obsessively refreshing the page essentially DDOS'ing them. Several people will be unable to purchase. It will sell out almost instantly and possibly go on backorder. More than a few people will be very upset and assume that they'd have their card if it weren't for the website issues.
Yes, this is with an ongoing pandemic and recession.

Ok, so it turns out all three were true of the PS5 preorders.
