There will be a limited number of PS5 consoles available for customers in the US, UK, Germany, France, Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.

"We will have a limited amount of PS5 Consoles available for customers to purchase direct from PlayStation," reads the registration page. "If selected, we will contact you via email with instructions and details."

You can register on the official PlayStation website here.

Q. Who will be selected to receive an invitation and when will I know if I’ve been selected?
A. If you are selected, we will contact you via email with the date, time and instructions for your opportunity to purchase a PS5 console. Registering does not guarantee that you will receive an invite. 
Q. If I receive an invitation, am I guaranteed to be able to order a PS5 console?
A. No, your purchase window is open for a limited time only and while supplies last. Check your personal invitation for details for the date/time of your purchase window. 
Q. Can I reserve more than one PS5 console?

Q. I currently reside outside of the countries that direct.playstation.com is available in. If invited, can I still purchase a PlayStation 5 Console, game disc or accessory?
A. If you receive an invite, you may place an order as long as the direct.playstation.com site you are ordering from delivers to the country of your chosen delivery address. See the Delivery & Tracking FAQ on direct.playstation.com

I actually got my PS5 console directly from Sony, but I didn't have to register for a chance to buy it. They just sent me an email with a link to their store and told me to click that link the next day at a specific time (I think it was 3 PM) if I was interested in buying a PS5. It was an easy process with just a small waiting time in a virtual line before getting into the store to make my purchase.

I wish more companies would sell their stuff in the way Apple does it with their products on their site. For high demand items it’s limited quantity per customer, but if you want something you just log in with your Apple account, buy the thing, and you are automatically put in a line. You are given an estimate of when they will have your item ready, and then it just ships when they have it for you.


No drops, no fighting bots, no sitting in a checkout queue for half an hour only to be told it’s out of stock when you finally get through, no waiting for an “opportunity” to make a purchase. You just buy the product and you get your spot in line guaranteed.

Totally agree. Give us "ships in 4 months" if necessary but let us just line up at the website.

I brought my Oculas Quest 2 directly from the Oculas site, these companies need to start doing these things more often. 3rd party retailers and sites are not as reliable.

VGChartz waits for the major sales tracking services before making their estimates, and those can sometimes be delayed for a variety of reasons. In this case VGChartz is waiting on the NPD numbers to be released, and they are posting their end of year numbers tomorrow.

Nope they don`t. Their weekly data is based on their own estimatives. Only adjustments are made based on other trackers.

After every New Year there's always Delays in some data from different regions to do a better estimate on sales.
