I've purchased tons from PSN. I have 147 platinums. I registered for a preorder and have not recieved an email.
Lots of hot takes in here. Let me give an alternative view.
Maybe Sony is trying to battle scalpers and flippers by having a path for true PS fans to get their hands on a PS5 without dealing with that bullshit?
Honesty it depends on shipping cost. I rather just get it at Amazon with my prime. I also know I'll get it on release day with Amazon. Never ordered directly from Sony so I don't know how they are. I got my ps4 at launch work Amazon and no issues
So Gaf...you get an email from sony saying you can preorder directly from sony....you open the link and they want $799
Do you bite?
how do you feel about this GAF? Sony will determine exactly who will be deigned worthy of a shot at purchasing a PS5, and this will be based on "previous interests and PlayStation activities. Exactly what that information is, and how it will be weighted, is currently unclear. Years of membership? Number of games owned? Whether the account in question pays for subscription services like PlayStation Plus or PlayStation Now, or merely uses a wholly free PSN account? Sony has yet to clarify this point.
Who will be selected to receive an invitation?
Our selection is based on previous interests and PlayStation activities.
Only console I had an issue with a launch / early version was the 360. Never had anything with my PS4 base console and my Pro is loud but never stopped working.L O L i'm sorry but anyone who preorders a piece of hardware they don't know the price of is a complete idiot, let alone knowing from previous experiences that the first batch of any console always has issues from the PS4 spitting out discs to the Switch's screen glitching.
Don't be a beta tester.
