Sony Direct has PS5 stock, but buying it isn’t guaranteed
PS5 restock at Sony queue begins with a countdown time before launching everyone into a virtual queue. The online ordering system then makes you wait an extended period of time before allowing a select few people (chosen at random, supposedly) to buy the system. If you do get through, you’ll have 10 minutes to buy the PS5.
Most people will see “more than an hour wait” from the estimated wait time. For others, they’ll see a queue of just a few minutes.
Both the Disc and Digital PS5 versions are for sale at Sony Direct at the MSRP of $499 and $399 respectively at the above links. Tax isn’t included, so it may cost a bit more.
Here are more rules, according to Sony:
- First, you will need an active PSN account in order to complete the purchase (you don’t need a paid PlayStation Plus account, but it can get you faster shipping).
- Second, you will have 10 minutes to buy the PS5.
- Third, “PS5 Consoles are now available but are not guaranteed even if you are in the queue,” according to Sony.a
