PS5 Pre-Order

Hmmm, something seems to have clicked. As reported by Spiel Times, it appears as though multiple online retailers -- across multiple territories -- have opened sign ups for PlayStation 5 pre-order notifications. In other words, you can now tell the likes of GAME here in the UK that you want to be notified when Sony's next-gen system is officially available to pre-order.

While this isn't hugely exciting news, it does represent another step towards the eventual release of the PS5 in late 2020. It also suggests that retailers are now gearing up for the big reveal.

Said reveal is still shrouded in secrecy, but numerous rumours reckon that the PS5 will step out from the shadows in early 2020, followed by a blowout at either E3 2020 (if Sony decides to show up) or some other big event. As always, though, we're just going to have to wait and see how things play out.
