You can stand in line now to buy a PS5 directly from Sony

Update April 21 at 18:33 ET: Sony has sold out of PS5 consoles for now.

One and a half years since its release, the PlayStation 5 is still extremely hard to get your hands on. Sony has been one of the most trusted retailers when it comes to refilling consoles, though it usually reserves them for invitations only that you need to sign up for. in advance. This is one of those rare moments when Sony opens a public queue, so if you’re still in the market for this rare console, either the disc-based PS5 for $ 499 or the $ 399 PS5 Digital Edition, just go ahead and queue up via its direct store to try your luck.
