Remember when Sony promised to warn people before opening PS5 pre-orders and people eagerly signing up first for the chance to buy one for themselves? Today’s PS5 storefront eventually revealed the price and release date of the PS5, but stopped revealing specific pre-order details such as: B. a date or a point of view. Sony corrected this information with a tweet, saying, “PS5 pre-orders will be available at select retailers starting tomorrow.”
PS5 pre-orders will be available from tomorrow at select retailers.

Looks like this is your warning. At this point, no one has received an email from Sony regarding signups for PS5 direct purchase (please email me with a tip if you̵
If you’d prefer to order through Amazon, keep an eye on the PS5 hub. It hasn’t been updated with any new information yet, but you probably want to be at an unspecified time tomorrow. You can also keep an eye on Best Buy, GameStop (if you trust buying through the problematic retailer), and Walmart.
Some people have reported success with various stores in their regions that they are pre-ordering now, including physical locations where customers can spend money on the console in less than two months. Availability also seems to vary regionally. Walmart apparently has pre-orders open, but when I tried to get one it said they were out of stock after going through the entire ordering process. Your luck may vary, but you may want to keep updating your favorite retailer’s pages the next day to make sure you can find one.
The PS5 launches on November 12 in the United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia and South Korea and on November 19 in the rest of the world (excluding China). The PS5 disc is $ 499 and the digital $ 399. Additional DualSense controllers cost $ 70 and can also be pre-ordered alongside the console depending on the retailer.
Good luck with the rat race. Let us know in the comments if you were able to secure a PS5 pre-order.
