- Sony has launched a registration page that can move you to the front of the PlayStation 5 pre-order queue in the US.
- If youâ€™re selected, youâ€™ll get to order one system.
- Youâ€™re not guaranteed a spot, and youâ€™ll have to act quickly.
Sony still isnâ€™t taking PlayStation 5 pre-orders, but you now have a chance to jump to the front of the line, if youâ€™re lucky.
Twitter tipster Wario 64 has learned of a Sony registration page that lets US gamers with PSN IDs sign up for an email invitation to pre-order before most of the public. The company hasnâ€™t said how many people it will pick or just what will increase your odds, but itâ€™s choosing people based on â€œprevious interests and PlayStation activities.â€�
If youâ€™re selected, youâ€™ll get to pre-order one PS5 (regular or Digital Edition) and up to two each of Sony accessories like DualSense controllers, charging stations, Pulse 3D headsets, media remotes, and cameras. The ordering window has an expiration date, and pre-orders will be on a â€œfirst come first serveâ€� basis â€” you arenâ€™t guaranteed to get one even if youâ€™re invited.

It might be worth signing up. While itâ€™s not certain just how many PS5 units will be available this holiday season, Sony has warned that â€œlimited quantities and high demandâ€� will come into play. You wonâ€™t have to compete with the broader public for units that could easily sell out.
Sony still hasnâ€™t committed to pricing or a launch date, however. While the company hasnâ€™t said why, many believe itâ€™s remaining silent on PS5 launch details to prevent Microsoft from selling the Xbox Series X at a lower (or at least more competitive) price. Until either side blinks, this registration page may be as close as you get to putting money down on Sonyâ€™s next-gen console.
