The slim version of the PlayStation 5 is sure to be popular, so knowing when pre-orders could go live and where to order it will be essential to pick one up.

Let’s dive in and discuss the possible pre-order dates and every retailer where you can get one with this PS5 Slim pre-order guide!

PS5 Slim Pre-Order Release Date & Time Speculation

At the moment, Sony has yet to confirm a pre-order date for the PS5 Slim model (Disc & Digital Editions), but with the “rollout” beginning in November, we suspect they will go live in late October or early November 2023.

As soon as Sony confirms a pre-order date, we will immediately update this article.

Pre-orders will start in the US and then roll out globally in the following months. The new PS5 will be the only model available to purchase once current PS5 stock has sold out.

Whenever pre-orders go live for the PS5 Slim, they will likely begin at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET or 10 AM local time.

These have been the previous pre-order times for items such as PS VR2 and the Spider-Man 2 PS5 Console Plates.

It is also worth noting that in 2020, many retailers put pre-orders for the PS5 live a day early on September 16 at 8:25 PM ET.
