How to register for a “limited quantity” of PS5 pre-orders direct from Sony
Sony announced earlier today that a select amount of customers will be able to pre-order a PlayStation 5 directly from their company website. The announcement states that a “limited quantity” of PS5 consoles will be available for pre-order and therefore they are only extending this offer to “existing consumers” who register on the PlayStation website using their PSN ID.
The pre-order program will be a first-come, first-served basis, and registrants will be informed via email if selected. According to a PS5 pre-order FAQ posted by Sony, the selection process is “based on previous interests and PlayStation activities.”
The announcement also includes a warning that an invitation to pre-order a PS5 directly from the company does not guarantee that individual a console. It is unclear if this means that only a limited amount of PS5’s will be available at launch, but definitely suggests this may be the case.
Those lucky to receive an invitation will be limited to ordering the following:
1 PS5 Console or 1 PS5 Digital Edition
2 DualSense wireless controllers
2 DualSense charging stations
2 Pulse 3D wireless headsets
2 Media remotes
2 HD Cameras
The announcement also suggests that the offer will be limited to the U.S., as it states that orders that contain a non-U.S. address will be canceled.
At present, there is still no release date or price for the PlayStation 5, however, it is expected to launch sometime this holiday season.
