Within minutes all the units were sold out and many complained they did not get a chance to order the console. Among these were YouTube and Twitch personalities who were disappointed at not being able to land a unit.

Since being sold out we did not hear any news from Sony as to when more units would be available. Sony revealed earlier today that the new pre-order session is going to start soon. Unfortunately this time around, everybody cannot go ahead and order a unit. This pre-order session is going to be invite-only.

Sony has reportedly sent out invitations to various people they believe will like to own a PS5 model. They mention the selection was made on the basis of “previous interests and PlayStation activities.

These individuals can now queue up on a first come first serve basis to receive their chance to buy the console.

Even if you have received an invite, there is no guarantee you can successfully order a console. Sony has posted an FAQ section on its website regarding today’s session. There they explain the quantities are limited compared to the sky-high demands.

Everyone invited can wait in the queue for their turn and no units are guaranteed until checkout. The queue wait will look something like this for the lucky invitees.
