PlayStation Direct is holding its 3rd November PS5 sale today. Chances are the invitation-based drop will be followed by an open drop.
Update from 11/15/2022, 11:03 AM: PS VR2 pre-orders are now open on PlayStation Direct, but only by invitation from Sony. By the way, there is still no trace of consoles. When the queue suddenly appeared it must have been a mistake.
Update from 15.11.2022, 10:10 am: The queue is currently empty for us and plenty of other PS5 fighters, we don’t see any available consoles or bundles. We are all sold out. Apparently this is the case for many people. But there is also conflicting information. A few are adamant that consoles were on sale. There is talk of the FIFA bundle, but so far without any hard evidence. So the situation remains unclear.
Update from 11/15/2022, 9:55 AM: A queue has just appeared on PS Direct. Many thought it was the PS VR2 queue, but it’s not clear at this point if that’s actually the case. Actually, PlayStation VR2 has its own. It is also unclear whether consoles will eventually be released.
Update from 11/14/2022, 1:15 PM: The FIFA 23 bundle is still available on PS Direct, more than an hour after the public sale launch (and after a closed drop that was already underway, mind you).
Update from 11/14/2022, 12:10 PM: Even if you’re initially told a wait of an hour or more on PlayStation Direct, don’t despair. This information usually jumps to a much more humane value after a few minutes.

Buy PS5 via PlayStation Direct: Today is the 3rd drop in November – will there be an open sale?
When was the last time you could buy the PS5 via PlayStation Direct? In November you could already dust off the PS5 twice at PlayStation Direct – both times in an open sale. The last drop took place on 07.12. instead of.
The interesting thing about it: both sales were made spontaneously, without notice and at unusual times. You could grab the new official bundle for “God of War Ragnarök” with no queue or invitation. But the next straw will be back to what you normally know it to be.
What is the current status of PS5 supplies on PlayStation Direct? Very good! Yesterday Sony sent new invitations for the next sales campaign to the lucky few (so check your emails – including the junk mail folder). This one takes place today, November 14, between 10:30 am and 12:00 pm German time – at least the invitation-based, closed sale.
Is there an open sale today? Even if you didn’t receive an invite from Sony this time despite registering, it’s worth giving PS Direct a closer look today. Because after the invitation-based sale, there is a good chance that there will be an open sale for all interested shortly after noon today (however, an active PSN account is also required here).
At least that’s how it always went with previous (regular) drops – mind you, since early summer and without exception. Even without an invite, there could be a chance for a PlayStation 5 today. We’ll be keeping a close eye on it all today and will let you know as soon as possible here and in our PS5 ticker if there’s actually an open sale – with a link to the queue of course.
And speaking of the ticker, PS Direct isn’t the only provider worth keeping an eye on right now. If you generally don’t want to miss a drop and always want to be up to date on the current supply situation for the PlayStation 5, then you should definitely check our PS5 live ticker regularly.
