Sony Direct's PlayStation 5 orders are now live, but that doesn't mean they have consoles available. Since the console went live on Thursday, gamers across the globe are patiently waiting for their pre-orders to arrive, and to some, they still haven't. For others, they decided to wait until the actual launch to make a decision on which console to grab.

That's when the stock issues are going to be a problem. If pre-orders are backed up, it's likely grabbing one on Day 1 is going to be difficult. Wal-Mart apparently has some throughout the day, but it's a limited amount at different time intervals. but what about the actual Sony store.

In the year's past, people needed specific codes to purchase from the store which allowed Sony to stock the exact amount needed. Since there are no codes, you now have a queue. Head to the website and see if any are in stock. At the time of writing, there are none in stock and it says more will be added on 11/12. That's obviously Thursday, so checking throughout the day is your best bet. Once they do have stock, prepare to be placed in that queue.
