PlayStation Direct was one of the strongest replenishment guarantees in April with a total of 3 PS5 drops. And the prospects for fresh consoles are also good in May.
Update from May 9th, 2022, 9:25 am: Since its launch, PlayStation Direct has emerged as a reliable replenishment factor and has brought replenishments every month without exception – in April even 3x! And if things are similar in May to April in terms of time and quantity, there could be a drop this week. So keep a close eye on your inbox (and spam folder). Because the invitation to PS Direct comes shortly before the start of a sale by email – provided you have registered for it and have been considered for the respective drop.
By the way, PlayStation Direct isn’t the only exciting PS5 provider right now. Other retailers are also currently offering fresh console supplies. For a comprehensive overview of the current supply situation and all relevant developments relating to the PlayStation 5, we therefore recommend that you take a look at our PS5 live ticker.
Update from May 7th, 2022, 10:30 a.m.: There’s nothing up for grabs on PlayStation Direct today, but Sony’s in-house PS5 direct distribution remains one of the most exciting and hottest drop candidates for the next few days. Since the start, there have been supplies there every month without exception, in April the PS5 was sold 3 times at PS Direct, but the console was not yet offered in May. It is therefore likely that there will be at least one more drop with a probability bordering on certainty. So check your inbox regularly. Because the invitation comes by mail, if you have been considered.

Buy PS5: PlayStation Direct is also a hot replenishment candidate in May
When was the last time you could buy the PS5 from PlayStation Direct? In April there was from 12.04. a weekly closed sale by invitation – with a total of 3 drops in total. Most recently, you could buy the PlayStation 5 from PS Direct on April 25th, provided you were included in the invitations. So in April, Sony was wearing its generous pants, and there were plenty of supplies. PS5 hunters who were willing to buy waited in vain for an open sale for all interested parties (without an invitation) in April.
What is the current status of PS5 supplies on PlayStation Direct? Even if no invitations have been sent out in May according to the current status – quite promising. Whether there will be several sales again, as in April, cannot be estimated, but it is basically certain that PS Direct will bring supplies again this month. Since it was launched, PlaySation Direct has launched at least one sales campaign every month, and not a month has gone by without fresh consoles.
In short: PlayStation Direct has proven to be a real guarantee of replenishment and is likely to drop again in May with a probability bordering on certainty.
Buy PS5: This is PlayStation Direct – This is how the direct purchase from Sony works
The path to the PS5 at PlayStation Direct: If you want a chance at a PlayStation 5 here, you must first register with PlayStation Direct with a PSN account for the sale – PRIOR to a promotion. A one-time registration should suffice and also apply to further sales if you have not yet received an invitation. Once that’s done, all you have to do is wait to be selected to participate.
As soon as the next PS Direct sale is due, Sony will then email randomly selected participants from the pool of registered accounts about the upcoming PS5 drop. This usually happens the day before the sale. If you have been considered for the invitations and have received a corresponding email, then you can buy a PlayStation 5 directly from Sony on the specified date in peace and quiet. So PS Direct is nothing more than a closed, invitation-based direct purchase from Sony. Sometimes, after the closed campaigns, there were also open sales, where all interested parties could take part without being invited in advance. Unfortunately, lately we have been waiting in vain for it.
Speaking of sales, if you don’t want to miss a sale, be sure to keep an eye on our PS5 live ticker. There you will always find the latest information about the current PS5 supply situation and drops in the current week.
Can you improve the odds at PS Direct? How Sony proceeds with the invitation or the selection of the participants for a PlayStation Direct sale is not officially known. Some suspect that this is done randomly. Some also speculate that loyal and active PlayStation users (e.g. with a PS Plus membership) are preferred. But to date, this speculation has not been supported by anything tangible. In short: Officially, apart from registering with PlayStation Direct, there is nothing you can do that would actually have a noticeable impact on your chances.
By the way, which should also interest some PS5 hunters – the chip shortage, which also affects PS5 production, is likely to continue for quite a while. You can find more about this here: Buy PS5: end of the chip crisis – according to Intel boss, console gamers have to be strong
