Scoring a Sony PS5 restock could be a bit easier this month. Sony Direct still allows players to register for their PS5 restock events by invitation only. Signing up does not guarantee that you will get a PS5, nor does it guarantee that you will receive an invitation, but it does increase your chances of receiving that coveted invitation-only email from Sony.
However, we recommend that you hurry up and register as we don’t know when (or if) Sony will close the registrations. (As of November 19, the registration page is still accepting new registrations.)
With the Black Friday deals in full swing, the competition for a PS5 console is expected to be fierce this holiday season, so any perks come in handy. Players with a PlayStation Online ID can register starting today to receive PS5 releases by invitation only from Sony. through this link. According to Sony’s website, registrants will start receiving invitations directly from Sony. If selected, You will receive an email with the date, time, and instructions for purchasing a PS5 console.
If you do not receive anything, it means that you were not selected. Sony’s website states that “selection is based on past interests and activities of PlayStation.” (If not selected, we recommend following our coverage of Black Friday PS5 deals for the latest deals and news on restocks and games.)
Walmart will have PS5 restocking soon
As a reminder, Walmart has confirmed that it will have a PS5 refill on Monday, November 22. The restocking will be part of the Walmart Black Friday sale event. Walmart Plus members will have early access at 3pm ET, while everyone else will have to wait until 7pm ET.
How to get a PS5 if you don’t receive an invite
Even if you don’t get an invite from Sony, not all hope is lost. Typically after an invite-only PS5 restock occurs, Sony tends to open its virtual queue to the general public. However, they are not always guaranteed to do so. (There have been no open refills for November as of yet.)
If there are additional consoles, a general public replenishment usually occurs after the invite-only event ends. (Usually an hour or two after the start of the original release.)
