How to pre-order PlayStation 5

As the release date is fast approaching, Sony also posted pre-order guidelines for those who would like to make sure they have higher chances of getting their unit. The company shared the pre-registration rules and stated that they will implement an “invite-only” registration for preorders of PlayStation 5.

Fans should take note that the PS5 units are limited only so the pre-order is a good option to buy the console. The PlayStation’s registration page has been opened to accept sign-ups and people will be getting an email from Sony to confirm if they were chosen to proceed for pre-order reservations.

This means that not everyone who will register can sign-up for pre-orders at once. Since the units are limited, Sony had to randomly pick who can register to reserve their PlayStation 5. For fans who still have questions about the process, they can check out the details on the FAQ page.
