Sony Will Give Advanced Notice Before PS5 Pre-orders Go Live

Written by on | OpenCritic

We will know in advanced when PlayStation 5 pre-orders will go live. 

Today Geoff Keighly was able to talk to PlayStation's Worldwide Head of Marketing Eric Lempel. During the conversation, Keighly brings up the recent rumors on pre-orders for the PlayStation 5. He asks Lempel if Sony will just "push the button" and let pre-orders go live. Lempel responds by saying he does not what happened and that Sony had nothing to do with the rumors. He then states that Sony will give gamers advanced warning on when they can expect to pre-order the upcoming console. 

"It's safe to say... We'll let you know when pre-order[s] will happen," Lempel states. "We will let you know It's not going to happen within minute's notice. We're going to, at some point, let you know when you can pre-order PlayStation 5. Please don't feel like you have to run out and line up anywhere until you receive official notice on how that'll work."

The PlayStation 5 was fully revealed last month. While the console does seem large, it still sports an incredibly sleek look, especially when put next to the Microsoft's upcoming Xbox Series X. The PlayStation 5 ditches the black color scheme that the PlayStation 4 adopted, instead opting for a white and black look. The system will come in two different forms: one with a disk drive, and one that will be all digital. We still do not know the official price for the two versions of the console, though it is rumored that the system with a disk drive will retail for around $500, and that the digital version will cost around $100 less. 

The PlayStation 5 will release sometime during the holiday season. The Xbox Series X is expected to release around the same time as the PlayStation 5.
