You can pre-order some products on direct.playstation.com before they are released.
Select the eligible product.
Add it to your cart and complete the purchase.
After placing your order, you will receive an e-mail confirmation containing an order reference number.
Please make sure your payment method will not expire before your item is expected to ship.
When will I be charged?
Your credit card will be charged for your pre-ordered item once it is ready to ship.
When you place your pre-order, we pre-authorize your credit card for the estimated total for all items in your cart. A pre-authorization hold is temporary, however, the amount of the pre-authorization may count against your credit limit for approximately 1-8 days, depending on your financial institution.
Approximately 10-12 days before your pre-ordered item is scheduled to be released, we will notify you via email that we will be authorizing your credit card for the item (plus the applicable tax & shipping costs). If you no longer want the pre-order, you can cancel it up until a week before the scheduled release date.
Your pre-order reservation will be canceled if your bank fails the credit authorization for reasons such as: insufficient funds, card expired, etc.
Can I make a purchase and pre-order a product at the same time?
You can. When you check out, we pre-authorize your card for the total estimated amount of all items in your cart. You aren’t charged for any of the items until they are ready to ship.
Items in your cart that are available now will be grouped into one order and you will be charged when those items are ready to ship (they may ship together or individually, depending on the order).
Pre-order reservations will be split into individual orders, regardless of the release date, and you will be charged when each item is ready to ship.
If you place your reservation at least 10 days before the item’s scheduled release date, we send you an email before the release date to remind you that we will charge your payment method prior to shipping the item to you.
If you place your pre-order reservation less than 10 days before the scheduled release date, you may not receive any email reminder unless something about your order changes.
Once your order has shipped, we'll email you the tracking number of our delivery carrier.
