PS Direct is back, and it will start 2022 with an invite-only PS5 restock taking place very soon!
PS5 scarcity is still an ongoing issue. Even though 2022 is already here, PS5 stock continues to deplete in minutes after restocks go live.
Manufacturers did everything possible during December to keep stock afloat. In fact, even with many worldwide issues affecting production, retailers managed to host constant restocks during the last month of 2021.
Despite that continuous restocking, many gamers could not get their PS5 consoles this Christmas.
Sony’s own PS Direct will try to remedy this for many lucky gamers by hosting its first PS5 restock of 2022.
PS Direct Confirms Its First PS5 Restock of 2022
PS Direct is starting this 2022 with an invite-only PS5 restock on January 5.
This restock will occur from 11 AM – 4 PM PT for those who received an invite. As usual, players received a direct invite link which they should access at the specified time to enter the queue and purchase their PS5 consoles.
By far, this is one of the easiest ways to get your PS5. Of course, there have been minor issues with these restocks here and there, but in general, PS Direct PS5 drops are smooth and free of glitches.
PS Direct has not restocked consoles in a while. Its last restock took place on December 13, with no drops after Christmas.
Considering how much time has passed, it is likely this will be a big restock.
If you were not one of the lucky gamers who received an invite for this restock, we’ve got you covered! Here is how to register and get an invite email for PS Direct’s PS5 restocks.
It’s been a long time since PS Direct had a PS5 drop for the open public. For this reason, your best bet to participate in these restocks is to register.
