PlayStation has rolled out a PS5 pre-order lottery program in America, in which a number of PS5 units will be sold directly through playstation.com
To access the lottery, gamers have to input their PSN ID, and then if successful, PlayStation will send you an email that will allow you to preorder a console and accessories once they are live.
This is purely open for Americans, and those that have a shipping address in America, but does give us an interesting first look at how preorders might work. It’s unclear if this kind of process will come to Australia.
Register for an opportunity to be one of the first to pre-order your PS5™ console from PlayStation.
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.
Pre-order reservations will be taken on a first-come-first-serve basis, so once you get an invite via email, we encourage you to follow instructions and act fast.
Those who receive an invitation will lo be able to pre-order the maximum amount of units:
1 PS5 Console or 1 PS5 Digital Edition
2 DualSense wireless controllers
2 DualSense charging stations
2 Pulse 3D wireless headsets
2 Media remotes
2 HD Cameras
Unfortunately, there’s still no price or release date, even though people are getting the opportunity to pre-order.
