Sony opens registrations for PS5 restocking by invitation only during the holiday season

Sony Direct allows players to register for its invitation-only PS5 restocking events. Signing up doesn’t guarantee you’ll get a PS5 – or receive an invite – but it does increase your chances of getting that coveted invite-only email from Sony. With the Black Friday deals starting earlier than ever, the competition for a PS5 console is expected to be fierce this holiday season, so any perks go a long way.

Players with a PlayStation Online ID can sign up for PS5 Drops by invitation only through this link. According to Sony’s website, those who sign up will start receiving invitations from November 2021. If selected, you will receive an email with the date, time and purchase instructions for a PS5 console.

If you do not receive anything, it means that you have not been selected. (In which case, we recommend that you follow our Black Friday PS5 deals coverage for the latest deals and news on restocking and games). Sony’s website states that “selection is based on past interests and PlayStation activities.”

Even if you don’t receive an invitation from Sony, all hope is not lost. Usually, after an invitation-only PS5 restock, Sony tends to open its virtual queue to the general public. However, this is not always a guarantee. (There have been instances where the retailer has completely sold out their consoles). If there are additional consoles, a restocking for the general public usually occurs after the invitation-only event ends. (Usually an hour or two after the start of the original fall). Of course, you can bookmark our restocking page and we’ll keep you up to date with the latest PS5 restocking news from Sony Direct and all major US retailers.
