Tips and tricks to keep in mind when pre-ordering the PS5

-Try to open multiple ecommerce websites on your laptop, this will give you a shot even if one site fails. But don’t overload your browser either. Just select the retailers you trust.
-While it’s great to keep multiple tabs open, it’s even better if someone else helps you through the booking process. An extra pair of hands and a separate machine doubles your chances of booking the console.
-Don’t give up quickly, sometimes servers get overloaded and websites display stock minutes after the allotted time of 12 noon. Some buyers have even managed to book the console hours later because of this error.
-It is imperative that you keep all your payment information on that platform in a timely manner. This helps immensely during those last seconds of booking the console. Make sure you are logged in to your account.
-Try to keep multiple payment options handy, such as UPI, credit/debit card, and more.

While these tips may help you, they don’t guarantee success once the pre-orders begin. Sony is struggling with an acute shortage of consoles due to the chip shortage. The company recently confirmed that they will continue building PS4 this year. This could be because PS5 units are still hard to come by.
