Sony has introduced a novel process to preorder its much anticipated PlayStation 5, though it has yet to reveal its price or release date. Starting today, hopeful buyers can go to Sony’s official preorder site to sign up, but only if they have a PlayStation Network ID. Sony has also emphasized that a very limited number of consoles will be available for preorder and that the final selection of the lucky buyers will be based on mysterious “previous interests” and no less intriguing “PlayStation activities,” without stating what these may be. To add insult to injury, Sony says that delivery will only be available to US addresses: “Any orders that contain a non-US based address will be cancelled.”
