Burger King and Sony want to give you a PS5.

Sony and the always fun Burger King have teamed up to hand out 1,000 PS5 consoles to those lucky enough to win one.

In order or be in the running for a free PS5, you will need to make at least a $5 pre-tax purchase at the store or through the Burger King app.

Doing so will provide you with a token for entry in the sweepstakes, and you can earn one token per day for each purchase. When food is ordered through the Burger King app, the token is automatically entered. If you make your purchase in a restaurant, you will have to provide receipt information each time online.

Of course, if Burger King isn’t your cup of tea, you can also mail in for your chance at a console. Just handprint your full name, full mailing address, email address, phone number, birth month, and birth year on a sheet of paper. You can enter once per day based on the postmark date.

Information on how to enter can be found through the sweepstakes page.

The original story follows.

Original story

PlayStation has teamed up with Burger King for some sort of PS5 announcement this week.

Sony has now effectively revealed the majority of details that remained mysterious for months about PS5. The platform holder finally talked backwards compatibility, and offered a full teardown of the console.

We know the price and launch date for PS5, what games will be there at launch in a few weeks, and how much they’re going to cost. The only thing that’s still being kept under wraps is the console’s updated UI. But, it looks like we might be getting our first look at that soon.

Overnight, Burger King’s social media accounts in America posted a brief clip showing the restaurant chain’s mascot opening a big bag. When he does, the bag plays what seems to be the PS5’s boot stinger, and shines a blue light similar to what we see on the console itself. The teaser ends with an October 15 date, which is when more details will be revealed.

You may recall that this particular sound was actually first heard during a transition in PS5’s June reveal event. At the time, many dismissed it as having any relation to PS5, but we now think this may actually be the sound PS5s play when they boot up.

As for the announcement, it could be as basic as a competition for Burger King customers to win PS5 consoles, similar to Xbox’s many competitions with Taco Bell. October 15 could also bring us our first proper look at the PS5 UI, which we do hope is what’s happening.

In any case, we’ll find out on Thursday. If you’d rather not wait for a chance to win a console, here’s how you can secure a PS5 pre-order.
