PS5 Pre-Orders Won’t Happen With “A Minute’s Notice” Says Eric Lempel


Eric Lempel has revealed in a new interview with Geoff Keighley that Sony will inform us about pre-orders ahead of time and that they won’t happen with “a minute’s notice”.

This statement came during a showcase of the new DualSense Controller and also after a number of rumours swirled earlier this week that pre-orders for the console were going to go live.

The full statement during the interview is as follows:

“We’ll let you know when pre-order will happen. It’s not going to happen with a minute’s notice. At some point, we’ll let you know when you can pre-order PlayStation 5.”

This is positive news and it seems like we will get a date from Sony when pre-orders will become available from, rather than them dropping out of nowhere.
