Invite-Only PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock Happening October 20

Sony is once again opening its PS Direct PS5 queue for yet another restock. Although, this time, there is a twist.

PlayStation Direct is surely not the easiest way to get your PS5, but it is the less hectic one.

Generally, Sony opens up a queue, and gamers wait for their turn to get a PS5.

Stock goes fast, so most gamers in queue end up missing the chance to get their console.

This time around, Sony confirmed an invite-only PS Direct PS5 restock. But, there are some twists to the usual protocol these restocks follow.

Invite-Only PlayStation Direct PS5 Restock for October 20

Sony is sending out invites already for its invite-only PS Direct PS5 restock.

This restock is taking place tomorrow, and it will be for those who registered on the PlayStation Direct site and received an invitation.

The protocol for this restock will be somewhat different this time around.

For instance, gamers will have a broader time window to get their consoles.

Customers are receiving an email with a unique link to get their consoles and a designated five-hour time frame to make the purchase.

Want to participate in this restock? Here’s How to Register & Get an Email for PlayStation Direct PS5 Restocks

UPDATE: PlayStation Direct is also having a PS5 restock on October 21.

On previous invite-only PlayStation Direct PS5 restocks, gamers had only a couple of hours to complete their PS5 purchase.

Sony is certainly aiming to make this process easier for consumers, which is surely welcomed.

Don’t waste your time. Even though you get the invite it’s still Sony’s horrible queue game! You’re better off with a bundle from GameStop.
