What to do once you’re in the queue

Once you’re on the virtual queue, you’ll be given an estimated wait time. All wait times vary, and there’s a good chance you’ll have “more than an hour” wait. If that’s the case, don’t despair. Your status can rapidly change and you may have a shorter wait time than estimated. (For instance, after waiting 20 minutes on a previous PS5 restock event, our time was cut from “more than an hour” to just 15 minutes). 

Additionally, you may be required to solve a captcha. (A simple challenge/question to ensure you’re not a bot). It usually requires that you select a radio box. As a result, you’ll want to make sure your browser tab remains prominent, because if it’s not you might miss your captcha challenge and you could forfeit your place in line.
