Don’t give up yet.
PlayStation Direct, Sony’s online store dedicated to PlayStation products, restocked its PS5 and PS5 Digital consoles Thursday according to emails sent out to those randomly selected to gain early access to the store. The restock started at 12 p.m. PT (3 p.m. ET) for the lucky few who received the email. Typically, PlayStation Direct opens up to everyone 2 hours after, but that didn’t happen Wednesday. It appears Sony only had enough PS5s for those who received invites, and sold out.
Typically Sony would follow a PS5 invite-purchase event with a public queue but it seems unlikely today since it hasn’t gone up yet. Still about an hour left in the day if they do a late one
Not sure if it matters but they sold out during the invite event too pic.twitter.com/03TF7zNXDr
