If you plan to pre-order the PS5, you should sign up with Sony.
Sony hasn’t confirmed the PS5’s release date or price, but now that the company has put together a registration page for those looking to order a new console this fall, it looks like these details may come soon.
To some surprise, Sony has released a registration page that gives existing consumers a chance to be one of the first to pre-order the PS5.
The company says it’s giving customers this opportunity as there will only be a limited number of PS5 consoles available for pre-order.
However, even if you register, there is no guarantee that you will have the opportunity to order. Sony says pre-order reservations will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis, and if you get an email to pre-order, you should act fast. Sony says it will select people based on previous interests and PlayStation activities.
In the meantime, we’ll show you how to sign up for a chance to pre-order a PS5 via Sony.
How to Sign Up for PS5 Pre-Orders
To sign up for PS5 pre-orders, you must: Go to Sony’s website. Once there, scroll down and you will need to enter your PlayStation Online ID twice. If you don’t have a PlayStation Online ID, you’ll have to wait for general pre-orders.
Once you’ve done that, all you have to do is click the “Register” button at the bottom of the page.
Sony says if you’re selected it will contact you via email with instructions and details before pre-orders begin. And if you get an invite, pre-order is not guaranteed.
Each invite is open for a limited time only and amounts are limited to PSN ID per transaction. Sony says the emails will include an expiration date and time.
Here are the things you limit:
Again, this is all on a first come, first served basis, so everything has a chance to sell out before you have a chance to pre-order.
Also note that you will need to ship your PS5 to an address in the United States. Sony says all orders containing a non-US-based address will be cancelled.
It’s unclear when pre-orders will begin, so keep an eye out for your inbox as we head into September.
