If you’re having trouble getting your PlayStation 5, there’s another way to get your hands on one of the hottest technical gadgets of the holiday season – by buying a Burger King.
Sony has announced a new promotion in conjunction with Burger King to give players the chance to get their own PS5.
From October 15 to November 22, players who buy them for $5 from any Burger King in the US will have a chance to win a PlayStation 5. Of course there is a special opportunity to participate in the PS5/Burger King promotion.
First, hungry players must register in the BK app or on BK.com to participate in the BK PS5 promotion. When the guest in the BK App, on bk.com or in the restaurant makes a deal for two for $5 or a purchase for more than $5, the guest receives a token. Guests can then use the game token to play the digital scratchcard game in the BK app or on BK.com and have a chance to win a PS5 console, PlayStation game codes or BK vouchers.
The official rules are published on the Burger King website, as well as alternative ways to participate, prizes, odds and much more.
To celebrate the new promotion, Burger King has released a brand new video to inform players about what the PS5 console boot-up sounds like. Watch the official promotional video of Burger King and PS5 with the boot sound below.
PS5 pre-orders have been difficult for gamers. Since Sony announced the release date and price on September 16th, the crazy hunt for a console is in full swing. Since the chaotic initial release of the pre-order, where retailers have taken it upon themselves to place pre-orders, it’s a little easier to determine where and when to try to pre-order.
Meanwhile, PS5 accessories like headsets, controllers and more, as well as next-generation games like Miles Morales and Assassin’s Creed, are still available for pre-order: Valhalla.
The PS5 standard and digital version will be released on November 12th in the following countries: United States, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. The rest of the world will receive it on November 19.
