Sony Has Opened Up Registrations to Buy a PS5 in the US – IGN – IGN

Sony has opened up a direct registration system that will give those in the US a chance to purchase a PS5 this holiday season.

However, not just anyone with a PSN account will be invited. According to the FAQ page, invitations are limited, and will be based on ‘previous interests and PlayStation activities’.

There will be a limited number of consoles available, but if you want to be within a chance, all you need to do is register for an invitation using your email and PSN ID (see here).

First invitations will be sent out in November.

Emails will be sent out starting in November, and if selected, you’ll be invited to purchase the console via PS Direct.

Each invitation will provide access to one PS5 or PS5 Digital console. It will also have a time limit, so if you do register, keep a keen eye on your emails in November.

If you’re interested in even more PS5 stock updates, and how to get a PS5 before the end of the year, make sure you’re following @IGNDeals on Twitter, as we’ll post new stock availability when it’s available at retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, and more.

Sony has already confirmed that supply shortages for the PS5 will continue into 2022, with the global chip shortage causing significant issues.

In May, Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang said he anticipates supply shortages for the RTX 30 series to last until “the second half of this year.” In that same month, Sony CFO Hiroki Tokoi echoed those claims during an earnings call, stating that the company is expecting PS5s to remain in limited supply throughout next year.
