Sony has sent out emails to what seems to be a select number of PlayStation fans with a PS5 pre-order offer. The offer states that you are registering for “an opportunity to be one of the first to pre-order your PS5 console directly from PlayStation.” Even if you register, it seems you will still need to be selected by them to receive a pre-order invitation.
The email also has an FAQ which gives us a look at the preorder process in detail which you can check out below.
Who will be selected to receive an invitation?
Our selection is based on previous interests and PlayStation activities.
When will I know if I’ve been selected or not?
If you are selected, we will contact you via email before pre-orders start. If you do not receive an email, you were not selected.
If I receive an invitation, am I guaranteed to be able to pre-order a PS5 console?
No. Each invitation is open for a limited time and quantities are limited per PSN ID per transaction:
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
PS5 console pre-order reservations will be first come first serve.
In order to pre-order, do I have to pre-order everything?
No. As long as your product selection falls within unit limits, you may pre-order as many or as few products as you’d like.
How long will I have to make a PS5 console pre-order reservation?
If selected, the expiration date and time will be included in your selection notification email and while supplies last.
Can I reserve more than one PS5 console pre-order?
Due to limited quantities and high demand, we will be limiting PS5 console pre-order reservations to 1 per PSN ID.
Will other PS5 products be available for pre-order?
Yes. Although these will be open to the general public for pre-order, only PS5 console reservations will be limited to those invited to pre-order.
What if I receive a “Sold Out” message?
All available PS5 consoles have been reserved.
I currently reside outside the US. If invited, can I still make a PS5 console pre-order reservation?
If you receive an invite and units are still available, as long as you ship to a US based address, your pre-order reservation will be allowed.
Any orders that contain a non-US based address will be cancelled.
If we don’t get any word on a release date or pricing before invitations come out, then it is certain that the preorder process will give us the long sought after information. Check your emails and stay tuned.
