Still haven’t got your hands on a PS5?
Maybe you will now!
Amazon is making things easier for you by launching a new invite-based ordering program.
PS5 was first released in 2020 and even after more than 2 years, it’s still hard to find a PS5. The delay in the restock is mainly due to the shortage of its components. And whenever it restocks, dealers and bots take most of the restock and resell it at a large profit.

We don’t know if the situation will get better this year or next year, till then Amazon’s new program is our only hope of getting a PS5 or Xbox Series X. But right now, this program is available only for the regular PS5, not for the discless digital edition.
Amazon’s Llew Mason says:
“We work hard every day to provide customers with low prices, vast selection, and fast delivery. This includes developing a shopping experience where customers can purchase the item they are interested in without having to worry about bad actors buying and reselling them at a much higher price.”
Plus Point: You don’t need an Amazon Prime Subscription for this!
What is this Amazon’s new program?
Amazon’s new program to reserve a PS5 is invite-based, currently, it’s only limited to the United States. With no additional cost, you can request an invitation to buy a PS5 or Xbox Series X directly from the product seller pages of these items.
These pages will do a background check of your Amazon account to make sure it is genuine and will not contribute to the reseller market.

How to Reserve a PS5?
Here’s how you can reserve a PS5, all you need to do is to,
- Log in to your Amazon account
- Visit the Amazon’s PS5 page
- Click on the “Request Invitation“
That’s it, in 3 easy steps, you can reserve a PS5. But still, the retailer says that they will not be able to fulfill all requests.
And luckily if you get the email from Amazon with the purchase link, you have to respond within 72 hours or the link will get expired.
Hope the situation of PS5 restocking gets better in the coming years.
But for now,
Go and try your luck, maybe this time you will get your hands on a PS5.
