“There will be a limited quantity of PS5 consoles available for pre-order, so we will be inviting some of our existing consumers to be one of the first to pre-order one from PlayStation.
Leading up to Sony’s September 16th event, Bloomberg published a report claiming that Sony had to cut their PS5 production due to issues with the chips being manufactured for the system.
This led to Sony vehemently denying the allegations later that same day. A statement from Sony, via GameIndustry.biz:
“While we do not release details related to manufacturing, the information provided by Bloomberg is false. We have not changed the production number for PlayStation 5 since the start of mass production.”
Pre-order reservations will be taken on a first-come-first-serve basis, so once you get an invite via email, we encourage you to follow instructions and act fast.
If you are interested in receiving an invitation, register below.
If selected, we will contact you via email with instructions and details.*”
