Sony has been facing a supply issue with the PlayStation 5 and for that reason, PS5 restock in the country has been scant.  As mentioned before, so far Sony has opened pre-bookings for the standard PlayStation 5 only three times and only once for the Digital Edition. Each pre-booking sale was met with a huge demand which resulted in stock clearance in a very short duration.

Reddit user audemed44 has a few useful tips to share for issues faced while pre-booking. If when you try to click pay, the page is unresponsive or says you’re in a queue, refresh the page and click ‘Pay’ repeatedly while the page is refreshing as a fix. The same user also mentioned that in the previous sale, stocks were made available in phases. Therefore if you’re unlucky at 12pm, try again later and you might be able to place your order.
