Sony has opened up registrations for customers in the United States giving them the opportunity to purchase a PlayStation 5 from PlayStation Direct in time for the holiday season.

If you live outside the United States, you can make a purchase as long as you choose an address in the country. If you enter a foreign address, your invitation will be cancelled.

“Over the coming holidays, we will have a limited number of PS5 consoles available for US customers to purchase directly from PlayStation,” Sony wrote. Once you have registered your interest and are one of the lucky few selected, you will receive an email from November with further instructions and details. Please make sure your email address is the email address associated with your PSN ID and that you have opted in to receive emails from PlayStation.

If you don’t hear anything, unfortunately you have not been selected.

Those who receive an invite can only buy An console (disk or digital), two Cosmic Red or Midnight Black DualSense controllers, three White DualSense controllers, one media remote, and one Pulse 3D headset. not you to have to buy all of the above – these are the quantities that Sony has limited each item to per customer.
