You can pre-register for the chance to pre-order the Sony PS5

Yes, you read that right. Sony announced yesterday that some lucky individuals who register on the PlayStation website will be the first to pre-order one PS5 console or one PS5 Digital Edition in the future. Sony has yet to announce the price of the PS5, and hopefully it will before sending out pre-ordered invitations. Sony also did not say how many invitations there are it will send among those who register for it.

Ek, Sony will also have other PS5 accessories for pre-order, and they will be limited to two per two accessories. They include the DualSense wireless controller, DualSense charging station, Pulse 3D wireless headset, Media remote, and HD camera. Quantities are limited per PSN ID per transaction.

In addition to limiting the number of people who can pre-order a PS5, the lucky ones who are selected are will have a limited window of time to do so. “Reserve pre-order will be taken on a first-come-first-served basis,” Sony said. If you miss that window of time, you will miss your chance and your invitation will be given to the next person in line pre-registered.

And that is not the only confirmation. Not only is this invitation open to existing PlayStation customers with a PlayStation Online ID, but Sony says they will select who they want to “invite” to pre-order a PS5 based on “previous interests and PlayStation activities”. ” So it sounds like if your controller has been collecting dust for a while or you’ve only played one game ever on your PS4, your chances of getting ahead are slim.

Pre-orders will also only be available to individuals who have a U.S. shipping address. “Any orders containing a non-US based address will be canceled,” Sony said.

All of this should reduce the number of people buying for a higher price on Craigslist, but it’s also a lot to ask people to pre-order, or even pre-register to pre-order, without first telling them the price. Recent rumors point to the PS5 costing $ 500, but that has yet to be confirmed. In an interview with May 2020 with, President and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, Jim Ryan, said that the price of the PS5 would be focused on the “best possible value proposition”, instead of the “lowest price. ‘Hopefully it won’t be as expensive as the PS3 when it’s released, which was $ 600, but don’t expect it to be as cheap as the PS4.

And while the next generation consoles will toute something seriously graphics this time, and will finally make the transition to SSD storage, it’s still the question of whether titles will be big names available at launch. So far, the biggest game that will be launched during Holiday 2020 Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales– yet this is not confirmed to start when the console itself starts. Assuming there is no delay in sending the game, it is possible that it may ship at the same time as the console. As of now, the only games confirmed to launch along with the PS5 Astro’s Playroom (comes preloaded on PS5) and Fortnite. Other games like Horizon Forbidden West en Gotham Knights will not arrive until 2021. (Although, how could anyone not be excited about Bugsnax.)

Many PS4 games will be backwards compatible with the PS5, but without a killer list of new games to guard the arrival of the PS5, there is not much reason to pre-order – or pre-register to pre-order order. Not enough new games to take advantage of all that great hardware.
