Update: The PS5 rebuild has started in the Sony Direct store, with the website randomly selecting people to buy the console. Below are the two versions in stock. So far, our waiting time is listed as “more than one hour”.
A new PS5 recovery in the US is taking place today on the Sony Direct website, and this comes with common disclaimers: the hard to buy console will go fast.

Sony includes three warnings with this PS5 stock. You first need an active PSN account to complete the purchase. Secondly, you will have 10 minutes to buy the PS5. Third: “PS5 consoles are now available, but not guaranteed even if you are in the queue,” according to Sony.
This is your second chance to buy the PS5 this week after GameStop quickly sold out of PlayStation 5 in a matter of minutes. And it was bundles.
Updates from Sony Direct PS5 have been quiet most of February, but the good news is that the site forms a virtual queue and your order in the queue is determined at random.
This means that your chances of getting a PS5 will not be reduced by page load and your own bandwidth speed. It has been a big problem when trying to order a PS5 from stores like Walmart and Best Buy, which consistently crashes after a PS5 goes on order.
