In this month of fasting, Sony Malaysia once again tempts gamers with the fifth batch of PS5 consoles available for pre-ordering. Those residing in Malaysia can pre-order the rare console starting from Friday, 16th April 2021, 00:01 GMT+8 onwards.
As usual, Sony Malaysia is offering both the physical and digital editions of their latest-gen console. The physical edition (the one with the ultra HD blu-ray disc drive) costs RM 2,299. The thinner and disc drive-less digital edition is cheaper with a price of RM 1,869. Regardless of which edition of the console you choose, do be aware that its accessories and peripherals are limited to one console per pre-order.
Unlike the 4th batch of PS5 pre-orders, the 5th batch pre-order in Malaysia will be conducted entirely online through Sony’s Lazada page. Remember to stay glued to your screens once midnight passes for a chance to get yourself a PS5.
Based on the pattern so far, it seems that the next batch of PS5s will be available for pre-order on 21st May 2021. This is because pre-orders for the past 2 PS5 batches were done on the 3rd Friday of the month. Note that this is merely speculation.
PS5 aside, PlayStation Studios Malaysia still has several job openings. Feel free to send them your resume.
