If you haven’t been one of the lucky ones to receive an invite from Sony, the latest PS5 restock from the PlayStation Direct store will be open to all from 10am this morning.
We expect a number of Disc and Digital consoles will be available to buy from Sony’s official store. Going by previous drops, you’ll only have the option to pick up either console by itself. Unlike other major retailers, no bundles will be offered.
As for how this system works, at 10am the waiting room will be opened up to all. After a short time (usually about 30 mins) you will then be assigned a random spot in the queue and just have to hope it’s high enough to get a PS5 console before they all sell out again.
Even a year after the PS5 launch, each restock still sells out in a matter of minutes. PlayStation Direct has been a new player in the game this year as Sony finally launched its own store outside of the US. Select PSN accounts are given invites to PS5 restocks in an exclusive two-hour window and then access opens to the wider public once this has passed. Admittedly, it’s not the most satisfying way to do it, but it definitely feels a lot more organised than some other stores.
PS5 restock at PlayStation Direct
Based on the current information out there, this is likely one of your best opportunities to get a PS5 before the end of the year. A couple more stores such as Very and Amazon could hold another restock in December, but it’s definitely getting close to the wire before Christmas.
