Sony has announced a change in how it will sell PS5 consoles on launch day.
The launch of the PlayStation 5 console on November 12, or November 19, depending on your region, will be online only.
According to Sony, this was done n the interest of “keeping our gamers, retailers, and staff safe amidst COVID-19.”
In other words, all day-of launch sales will be conducted through the online stores of retail partners.
No units will be available in-store for purchase on launch day, so you will have to order online.
Those who have pre-ordered for pick-up at their local retailer should still be able to do so at their designated appointment time, but Sony suggests you confirm the details with the retailer.
