The hype for the PlayStation 5 has been increasing each month, and gamers worldwide have been taut with excitement to get their hands on this brand-new console. There’s no price point yet, but Sony has recently set up a pre-order page for the PS5.
Not to burst your bubble, though, but you can’t pre-order the console just yet. The pre-order page has you sign up with your PSN ID so that you will be notified right away once pre-orders are available.
Although, from what we can understand, signing up on the site may get you chosen for a chance to pre-order the console before the others who didn’t sign up. The website states:
“There will be a limited quantity of PS5 consoles available for pre-order, so we will be inviting some of our existing consumers to be one of the first to pre-order one from PlayStation.
Pre-order reservations will be taken on a first-come-first-serve basis, so once you get an invite via email, we encourage you to follow instructions and act fast.
If you are interested in receiving an invitation, register below.
If selected, we will contact you via email with instructions and details.”
You might be wondering why they need your PSN ID, though. The answer can be found on their FAQ page. The page states that the selection will be “based on previous interests and PlayStation activities.” This could mean that the more you use your PlayStation, the higher your chances are of being chosen.
In retrospect, this makes sense, since they would want to choose legit fans who would make use of the console, instead of scammers who would simply just resell it online. Since Sony has set up this page, then it would be safe to assume that they will post more information about the PS5 soon, such as the release date and the price.
That being said, if you’re aiming to get your hands on the PS5 as soon as possible, you should definitely sign up. All you have to do is enter your PSN ID – you don’t even have to sign in. After that comes the waiting game. Good luck!
