A Dutch retailer has began accepting pre-orders for the Sony PlayStation five (PS5).
Set to launch towards the finish of 2020, 76 Game Mania is now taking reservations for the forthcoming PlayStation five for the modest charge of €50 (£45).
This will be deducted from the cost of the console when it is launched.
Interestingly, there’s no word on irrespective of whether the PS5 will launch in the Netherlands. If it does not, these who pre-ordered the device will be entitled to a complete refund.
After a reservation has been created, customers are placed on a waiting list that entitles them to the very first batch of inventory 76 Game Mania receives, notes Let’sGoDigital.
It is operating on a very first come, very first served basis – so the sooner you order, the greater you are on the list.
Nevertheless, this does not necessarily imply you will obtain the PS5 on launch day.
Orders will be distributed in succession, beginning with the very first individual to reserve the console, as and when 76 Game Mania receives inventory of the PlayStation five.
