For those eagerly waiting for the release of the PlayStation 5 (PS5), here’s your chance to be one of the first few to get your hands on the new console.

Sony opened an online registration on its website on Thursday (Aug 27) for PS5 pre-order invitations.

“There will be a limited quantity of PS5 consoles available for pre-order, so we will be inviting some of our existing consumers to be one of the first to pre-order one from PlayStation,” the company said on its site.

“Pre-order reservations will be taken on a first-come-first-serve basis, so once you get an invite via email, we encourage you to follow instructions and act fast.”

For customers residing outside of the United States, you will need to have the console shipped to a US-based address. Any orders that contain a non-US based address will be cancelled.

To register for a chance, you will have to be an existing PlayStation customer. The registration has to be done using your PlayStation Online ID, and each ID is limited to one PS5 pre-order reservation.

Sony added that its selection is “based on previous interests and PlayStation activities”.

While no date has been announced yet, the PS5 is slated to be released between October and December this year.

It comes in two versions: a slim Digital Edition without a drive and, a chunkier edition with a 4K Blu-ray drive.

PS5 accessories that have been announced include a wireless headset, a camera, a media remote and a charging dock for the PS5 DualSense controller.
