The hope is that this process means that PS players who haven’t been able to secure their console yet (and who reside in the US) have the opportunity to finally get their hands on the PS5. Supply has been considerably constricted due to the ongoing semiconductor chip shortage, so fingers crossed for anyone applying to finally get their PS5. We’re rooting for you!
To begin with, Sony reveals that it’ll be choosing buyers based on their “previous interests and PlayStation activities”, while further on, it confirms that PS5 stock will be limited to one purchase per PSN ID. The store will be open from November 2021 and potential buyers will be sent an email if they’ve been selected to purchase a console. The site confirms if you don’t get an email, you haven’t been selected to buy a PS5 at this time, so here’s the obligatory “don’t forget to check your spam” message.
