Sony opens registration for PS5 in the US

PS5 Pre-Whine Registration is Open

PS5 Pre-Whine Registration is Open

And some bad news.

This news doesn't actually tell us anything like a full release date, or the price the console is actually going to cost.

Sony and PlayStation US have offered loyal fans a way of registering for the chance to be one of the first to pre-order the upcoming PlayStation 5. Now, the bad news.

If you receive an invite and units are still available, as long as you ship to a U.S. based address, your pre-order reservation will be allowed.

However, submitting the registration form would not guarantee an invite to be able to pre-order the console. It's a chance at ordering a PS5 and invitations will be time-restricted, as stressed in the PS5 pre-order FAQ page. One caveat to note is that you have to ship your pre-order to a United States address for the purchase to be valid, so you'll need a freight-forwarded to send it back to Malaysia. Now here is the tricky part.

Fresh Covid-19 cases climbing after a lull
Today is the 158th day since India implemented a nationwide lockdown, to help curb the novel coronavirus pandemic. Taking to Twitter, the Ministry of Health said, " Active cases are only 22 percent of total COVID-19 cases".

Who will be selected to receive an invitation?

There are a few terms and conditions that must be fulfilled, the biggest being, whether you are lucky enough to be among the first few ones to buy the PS5. But if you'd still like to preorder one on the basis of blind faith and a susceptibility to hype, then Sony has the deal for you.

A list of FAQs has also been posted that mentions that the fortunate registrants invited to make a pre-order will be selected "based on previous interests and PlayStation activities".

As of but there's no info about how bodily shops will most likely be facing pre-orders, especially given the excessive demand for the recent console and the evident complications with manufacturing. But it does not end there.

The pre-order window will be open for a limited time upon receipt of the invitation, so you'll have to move fast if you want to get your hands on one.

Sony has opened up signups to existing PlayStation users for what is essentially a raffle to pre-order the initial launch quantity of PS5 consoles. You are free to reserve two DualSense wireless controllers though.
