A YouTuber alleges that users can bypass Sony's website through a glitch that may lead you to get a PlayStation 5 without queueing up or hacking the online store.

Sony PS5 Direct Queue: Users Found a Hack in Online Store

According to Neo Gaf's forum, particularly user Maddux 4164, the gamer found a YouTube video that shows how to easily skip Sony's direct queue website in line for the PlayStation 5. The forum user asked whether the video was legit because performing it allegedly "threw" them back at the end of the line.

Moreover, Maddux 4164 said that it took them three hours to line up for the direct queue, but the user "never" got on the website despite the wait. Cases like this would force one to look for alternatives or straight-up breach Sony's website because of the frustration of buying a PlayStation 5.

The PlayStation 5's Direct Queue website mostly says that the wait time is an estimate of one hour, but users in the Neo Gaf's forum said that Sony would make you wait for more than that. Indeed, refreshing Sony's PS5 store website would only throw users at the back of the queue again, but there might be a chance to bypass that with the glitch.
