It’s gogogogogo time! Today Sony opened PlayStation 5 direct pre-orders for US-based consumers with a valid PlayStation Online ID to register for a PS5 console pre-order invitation from PlayStation alongside an FAQ outlining pre-order invitations.
If you reside in the United States (or have a US-based address it can be shipped to) Register to Pre-order a PS5 Direct from PlayStation, be sure your email address is the one associated with your PSN ID (manage it HERE) and if selected you’ll be contacted via email before pre-orders start.
According to their PS5 Direct Pre-orders Page, reservations will be taken on a first-come-first-serve basis, so once you get an invite via email you’re encouraged to follow the instructions and act fast.
Previously in PlayStation 5 News we’ve covered some PS5 Pre-order Notification Sign Ups, the Official PlayStation 5 Site launch, PS5 Game Pre-orders and the Official PS5 Amazon Page arrival with similar pages set up at retailers including BestBuy, GameStop, Target and Walmart.
Sony has also made available a Deeper Into PS5 FAQ, a PS4 Hardware Compatibility on PS5 FAQ and to quote from their most recent PS5 FAQ Page: FAQs for PS5 Console Pre-Order Invitation from PlayStation
