Pre-orders for the PS5 could finally be going live soon if some new action on Sony’s end is any indication.
Well, the time has finally come to sign-up for PS5 pre-orders. Uhh, sort of.
Sony made some changes to the official PlayStation 5 section of its website recently that now allows users to register for the option to pre-order the next-gen console when it becomes available. The site doesn’t indicate when the PS5 itself will become purchasable in this manner, but hey, at least its some sort of progress.
Sony has set up a page to register to be one of the first to preorder PS5 directly from Sony https://t.co/SmTf5rE2Yl pic.twitter.com/Fia2PGt3D8

Those who want to sign-up to pre-order the PS5 will then be randomly selected to buy one directly from Sony when the raffle happens. Invitations themselves aren’t a guarantee that you’ll then be able to snag a PS5, so be sure to keep checking your email if you do register. As for the registration process itself, Sony only asks for your current PlayStation Online ID. Once you punch it in, you should be good to go.
The whole roll-out of pre-orders for the PS5 and Xbox Series X have been downright odd, to say the least. We’re nearly into September and we still don’t have firm prices or release dates for either next-gen platform. Still, if Sony is beginning to make moves like this on their own website, you’d imagine we’ll start hearing more very soon.
Until then, all we know is that Sony still intends to release the PS5 at an undetermined date this holiday season.
