For those lucky enough to pre-order a PS5 console directly from the PlayStation site and are part of the first wave of shipment, you’ll be glad to know that Sony has officially begun shipping out the hardware just in time for the November 12 launch.
In an email update that is being sent out to buyers (including us) the company noted that the orders have officially shipped.
Additionally, for those who may not be home for the package to arrive you may want to know that the package will indeed require a signature and the carrier shipping the console is being handled by FedEx.
On a related note, if your order is shipping from a distribution center that is reasonably close, don’t expect to see it arrive any earlier than the expected delivery date as Sony has instructed FedEx to not deliver to homes until the expected date. This was verified on the FedEx website when viewing tracking information for our order.
If you’re excited for the console, well, then this should help make that more bearable — assuming you manage to pre-order one successfully. Just a few days ago, the first batch of PS5 reviews have surfaced, and we compiled them in one place! For those in Asia, there’s a PS5 event set to kick off this November 11! We’ll be sure to keep you posted if the company supplies an update for the region.
Stay tuned for more PS5 news that’s sure to surface in the coming days before launch.
