Sony Has Opened Up Registrations to Buy a PS5 in the US

Sony has opened up a direct registration system that will give those in the US a chance to purchase a PS5 this holiday season.

However, not just anyone with a PSN account will be invited. According to the FAQ page, invitations are limited, and will be based on 'previous interests and PlayStation activities'.

There will be a limited number of consoles available, but if you want to be within a chance, all you need to do is register for an invitation using your email and PSN ID (see here).

Emails will be sent out starting in November, and if selected, you'll be invited to purchase the console via PS Direct.

Each invitation will provide access to one PS5 or PS5 Digital console. It will also have a time limit, so if you do register, keep a keen eye on your emails in November.
