Along with going hands-on with the PS5’s DualSense, Geoff Keighley also interviewed Eric Lempel, senior VP of marketing at Sony, about the PS5. Lempel took the opportunity to address the console’s pre-order pages going live on Amazon Australia. He noted that, “We had nothing to do with that.”

Lempel also further talked about getting a message about how “people are lining up at stores, and we had no idea why.” Essentially, Sony won’t be announcing that PS5 pre-orders on such short notice. “We’ll let you know when pre-orders will happen. It’s not going to happen with a minute’s notice. We’re going to, at some point, let you know when you can pre-order PlayStation 5.”

When asked about other colors for the DualSense, Lempel was rather cagey and said that “We’ll talk about it at some point.” As for whether that means there will be alternate color schemes that have yet to be revealed or Sony is leaving the matter for after launch is unknown. The PS5 is still slated to launch this holiday season though.

Stay tuned for more details in the meantime. Along with Astro’s Playroom (which is pre-installed on the console), launch titles include Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Deathloop and Kena: Bridge of Spirits.
