It seems one of the dataminers from the net managed to dig up some juicy info on the next-gen console from Sony, and it sounds like Sony could be bringing back a pre-order strategy it used for its PS4.

While looking into the PlayStation Direct website, the dataminer found an error message in the PlayStation Direct source code used to purchase games, consoles and other stuff. When they tried to add more than one console to their cart, the error message popped up. The user then decided to go into the rabbit hole a bit more and found a line that said, “You can only purchase one version of the PS5™ Console: Disc or Digital. You have already added one PS5™ console to your cart.”


So, what does this imply? That when trying to buy a console, at least directly from Sony, they will limit the purchase to one per customer, or even per household. Apparently, this is going to apply to both the regular console and the digital version. If this is Sony’s way of scaring off scalpers and trying their best for more people to get their hands on the much-awaited sleek console, then they’re OK in my book.

Still, there’s a way around the limitation. If you recall, a similar method was used for the pre-ordering of the PlayStation 4, but people deciphered how to get around the restriction by pre-ordering or purchasing from several retailers. Well, there you go.
