Sony will let a select group of customers pre-order a PlayStation 5 directly from the company through its website. A “limited quantity” of PS5 consoles will be available for pre-order through the offer, which will be extended to “existing consumers” who register on PlayStation.com.
Pre-orders through Sony’s PlayStation Direct store will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis, and registrants will be informed via email if they’ve been selected. According to a PS5 pre-order FAQ posted by Sony, that selection process is “based on previous interests and PlayStation activities.”
Sony warns that an invitation to pre-order a PS5 directly from the company does not guarantee someone a console. Those who are selected, however, 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 offer from PlayStation appears to be limited to the U.S. only for now. Any orders that contain a non-U.S.-based address will be canceled, Sony says.
Sony has not announced a release date or price for the PlayStation 5, which is expected to launch sometime this holiday season.
