With the Playstation 5 launch nearly upon us, Sony has confirmed today there will be no in-store consoles available on either regional launch date, November 12 or November 19. Consoles will be available exclusively online through Sony’s retail partners.

Sony explained in a statement that the decision was made in the interest of keeping store employees and customers safe from unnecessary exposure to COVID-19. “Please don’t plan on camping out or lining up at your local retailer on launch day in hopes of finding a PS5 console for purchase,” said Sid Shuman, Sony’s Senior Director, SIE Content Communications. “Be safe, stay home and place your order online.”

However, those who have placed a pre-order for pickup should still be able to receive their console, and Sony suggests confirming safety protocols and other details with their respective retailers.

Read Sony’s statement in full via the company’s blog.
