It’s time again for another chance to buy a PlayStation 5 direct from Sony. While the console maker often sends out emails for invite restocking, this one is for everyone, and it’s starting now. If you’re lucky, you’ll get through the queue and have the chance to buy a $499 standard disc-equipped PS5 or a $399 PS5 Digital Edition.and if Sony’s latest console sales events have anything to offer, there should be bundles of both with Horizon Forbidden West included for a total saving of $20 off the cost of the game.
Remember that when you buy a PS5 from Sony you need to log into your PlayStation Network account and you can only buy one console with each account. These queues can last up to an hour or more, and the estimated time remaining can add up slightly. The key is to stick with it and see if you’re lucky. You don’t have to refresh the page at all, so just let it tap and cross your fingers.
As you get past the queue, you can choose from the available consoles and bundles on offer, as well as accessories, such as colorful controllers or a wireless headset. Make sure you don’t waste time and check out right away to minimize the chance of making mistakes or missing something somehow. And of course good luck!
