Remember RSD 2020? You'll never believe what happened next! Read this thread to find out!!!

Recommended Posts

Thing is, will online sales be good or bad for people trying to get what they want? Will the tech savvy flippers have an easier time snatching things up now? Will the slobs who crawl out of their hovels on RSD have the acumen to engage in such things as bots? It may be wise to hit up the usual purveyors of online sales and encourage them to put precautions in place.

So, it appears there was a since-deleted tweet that said the whole event was being moved to June 20:

Also found a reference to it here;

I'm surprised they didn’t just postpone until “summer” without giving a specific date yet.

Nah, the human race will have moved on to something else by then.  Something way more polarizing but less scary where you’ll be allowed to do things.

I think even the most pessimistic projections have June as OK

I don’t know about that: E3 was cancelled and it’s June 9-11.  Apple moved their June developer’s conference to online only. A lot of Gay Pride events which traditionally take place in June have been cancelled or postponed. 
 

I think it’s just a matter of being so far out that organizers of May/June events are taking a wait-and-see approach for now, but it seems weird to me to go to the effort of postponing something in April only to move it two months later. Again, most of the stuff I’ve seen postponed (rather than flat out cancelled)  is up in the air in terms of rescheduling.

 

(Though I guess much later than June and it would practically overlap with Black Friday...)

June/July are when most epidemiologists are predicting is when the curve will flatten. Minimum time for a vaccine to be administered in sufficient amounts is 18 months. I think I'm done buying vinyl for a while tbh. Need to save up.
