The forum user discovered an error message, which was added to the source code of the PlayStation store page. “You can only purchase one version of the PS5 Console: Disc or Digital. You have already added one PS5 console to your cart,” the message reads.
There have been rumors that there may be a shortage of PS5 consoles at launch, But Sony has apparently ramped up its console production, meaning that it should have plenty of PS5 consoles to go around.
Still, Sony could have trouble keeping up with demand. And limiting pre-orders to one per customer could be a way of ensuring that more PS5 shoppers can get the console.
Given the PS5 is set to be a $500 console, buying more than one at a time would require PlayStation fans to have rather deep pockets, especially when one considers that games for the next-generation consoles are set to be pretty expensive; prices are tipped to be around $70 per game.
But there are also plenty of resellers out there who are waiting for their chance to pounce and gobble up as many PS5 consoles as possible. Limiting pre-orders to one per person is a way of leveling the playing field.
