You Can’t Officially Pre-Order the PS5 Yet, But You Can Arrange to Be Notified When You Can

There’s still no release date, no price, or no idea of what the console looks like, though

Remember last wee when we told you about that Canadian game retailer that would let you “reserve” a PS5? Well, this time around, we have something a little more official through reputable retailers. To be clear, you still can’t pre-order the PS5, but you can sign up to get notified when pre-orders open – something that should help you secure or at least improve the likelihood that you get a console from the first shipment.

When Can You Pre-Order the PS5?

Pre-orders have yet to open (as of April 2020,) and Sony has yet to reveal the console itself, let alone announce a starting price, ship date, or anything else outside of the new DualSense controller and a promise that the PS5 is still on track  despite rumors from industry insiders that the PS5 has performance issues and suffers from hardware failure, something that hints to Sony being forced to redesign the console altogether. If those rumors are true, the PS5 will be delayed.  That said, you can still arrange for your favorite retailer to let you know when Pre-Orders have officially opened:

Now, regardless of the situation now, if Sony really is on track for a holiday 2020 launch, then we can look back at the PS4 and guesstimate that pre-orders should open up toward the end of June. The current COVID-19 pandemic could delay the opening of pre-orders could come further down the road with the potential that the console could still be delayed beyond the holiday 2020 if things really get bad.

For now, you can check out some of our more recent PS5 coverage:
