US retail giant GameStop will be holding in-store PS5 preorders for the Standard Edition of the console from this Friday, according to Twitter user and respected leaker, Wario64.
PS5 Preorders Coming To GameStop This Friday
According to his Twitter post, those who preorder the PS5s on Friday will not receive them for launch, but will likely turn up within one or two weeks. GameStop hasn’t made this official yet, but this is the info given to Wario64 by an employee.
Here’s some more info:
Preorders available during normal GameStop hours
PS5s expected to arrive within a week of launch
Pulse Headset/DualSense Charging not available to preorder with Friday’s PS5
Some stores may not be doing reservations if they over-reserved last week
The PS5 was available for preorder for the first time in the early hours of Thursday morning (if you’re in the UK, that is) and quickly sold out pretty much everywhere. However, Sony has promised that more stock will be available soon enough.
