Sony is going to offer a chance for some people in the United States to buy a PS5 direct from the source. It opened up a new website ahead of the 2021 holiday shopping season. People can sign into their account and register there for a chance to get an email invitation to buy a console from PlayStation Direct in November 2021.
Here’s how it will work. On the site, Sony said it will have a “limited amount of PS5 consoles” at PlayStation Direct. People who sign up might be picked “based on previous interests and PlayStation activities.” If someone gets an email invitation to buy a PS5, it will say exactly exactly how long you have to purchase one. Only one invite and PS5 is possible to get per email and person.
The site also clarified a few details. If someone isn’t in the US but does know someone who would be willing to have the console shipped to a person who does live there, they can buy a PS5 direct from Sony. The FAQs also confirmed that an invitation is not only good for one standard or digital PS5, but for the purchase of a few accessories. For example, someone could also buy up to three white DualSense controllers, up to two DualSense controllers that are black, red, or in a bundle, one media remote, and one Pulse headset. But they also don’t have to buy anything but a PS5.
Invitations for this new opportunity will begin appearing in inboxes in November 2021.
