Sony Opens US Registrations to Purchase a PlayStation 5 Directly This Holiday Season


The PlayStation 5 console has been released almost a year ago, but many continue having trouble finding one at the recommended retail price. To help more users get the console, Sony has opened registrations to buy one directly from them this Holiday season.

Registration is only available for users living in the United States, and registering doesn't guarantee an invitation, as users will be selected based on "previous interests and PlayStation activities".

The PlayStation 5 console launched worldwide last year. The console feels like proper next-gen hardware thanks to the new Tempest AutoTech and DualSense controller. You can learn more about the console by checking out Kai's review.

Sony's entry into the next-generation console war is the one that feels like a proper next-gen system. Rather than simply expanding on the existing libraries, Sony has established themselves as the console that's going to bring gamers into a new era. The software and UI are both early on in their implementation, but it's the combination of Sony's new Tempest AudioTech, titles that can take advantage of the SSD, and the DualSense controller that truly make this console stand out among the rest.
