Buying PS5: PlayStation Direct – When will console supplies come again?

The best chance to get a Sony PS5 right now is to register directly with PlayStation Direct. There were also three drops here in April.

Update from 05/14/2022 09:01: Arguably one of the best opportunities fans have to buy a Sony PS5 is to subscribe directly to PlayStation Direct.

Buy PS5: This is PlayStation Direct – this is how Buy Direct from Sony works

Path to PS5 on PlayStation Direct: If you want to take a chance on PlayStation 5 here, you must first register for PlayStation Direct with a PSN account to sell – before the promotion. One time registration should suffice and also apply to further sales if you haven’t received an invite yet. Once you’re done, all you have to do is wait for you to be selected to participate.

Once the next PS Direct sale is due, Sony will send emails to randomly selected participants from the pool of registered accounts about the upcoming PS5 drop. This usually happens the day before the sale. If the invitations are considered and you receive a matching email, you can purchase a PlayStation 5 directly from Sony on the scheduled date in peace and quiet. So PS Direct is nothing more than a closed invitation-based direct purchase from Sony. Sometimes, after closed campaigns, there were also open sales, where all interested parties could participate without being invited in advance. Unfortunately, we have been waiting for him lately in vain.

Speaking of sales, if you don’t want to miss a sale, be sure to keep an eye out for our PS5 live ticker. You will always find the latest information on the current state of PS5 supply and landing in the current week.

Can you improve the odds in PS Direct? How Sony proceeds with the invitation or selection of participants to sell PlayStation Direct is not officially known. Some suspect that this is done randomly. Some also anticipate a preference for loyal and active PlayStation users (eg with a PS Plus membership). But so far, this speculation has not been supported by anything concrete. In short: Officially, aside from signing up for PlayStation Direct, there’s nothing you can do that will have a noticeable impact on your chances.
