It appears that Sony will be accepting pre-orders for the PS5 soon. Registrations, which are possible on the official website and which should allow customers to quickly acquire possession of the new console, provide a reason for acceptance.
A few weeks before the expected launch of the PlayStation 5, Sony seems to be preparing for the pre-order phase. At least on the US side, the company draws attention to the imminent registration for the new console. According to Sony, this gives customers the opportunity to be among the first to pre-order a PS5.
At this year’s console launch, there will probably be more interested parties than available consoles. And Sony also refers to a limited amount sold in this context.
“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,” said Sony.
Reservations for pre-orders are accepted according to the “first-come-first-serve” principle. Once customers receive an email invitation, Sony recommends that they follow the instructions and act quickly. As mentioned at the beginning, it should be noted that the registration was first activated on the US side.
PS5 pre-orders will not only be possible with Sony. Companies such as Amazon, Media Markt, Saturn, and others are also likely to have prepared for the expected onslaught. In previous hardware releases, pre-orders, which were usually only possible for a few minutes, were often accepted in stages.
It is still unclear when the PS5 will be launched. Microsoft recently announced that the Xbox Series X will be available in November. It is therefore unlikely that Sony will start until December. The PS5 launch in November wouldn’t be an unsafe bet in the end. It is also unclear what price customers have to pay. However, an amount of $499 USD was in circulation for the new console of Sony in recent rumors.
