About PS5 Redirect Error

You may want to know about the PS5 Redirect error. It is because you may experience this thing, but you do not know how to fix this error. Well, I tried to find the information about the PS5 Redirect error, but I did not find the information about the methods about how to fix this error.

Instead, I found someone on Game FAQs GameSpot site who asked about this. There is a user named Jdsmart and he told that he was new to try to get a PS5. He then also said that he tried to get one through the Sony Direct. He got into the queue and it said over an hour to wait. He waited a bit and watched the bar fill up a bit. After 20 minutes or so, he said that it got down to like 5 minutes to wait. Then, those 5 minutes went by and eventually the screen said it was loading the page to buy PS5s. All of sudden, he got an error message which said:

“Used Queue number

You have been redirected before using this queue number”

He thought that it was weird, but there was a link to get a new place in line. He clicked it and now it told him that he had around 12 minutes to wait. He waited and watched the bar fill up. Soon, it was time for him to get redirected to the store when another error message popped up.

“Rejected queue number

There has been an error, and your queue number has been rejected. We reported this issue and apologize for any inconvenience.”

He found this very strange and once again clicked the link to get back into line. This time the line was shorter. After he got through he received the original error message. He got back into line and this time the wait was just a few second. Then, he received the second error message. However, he did this a few more times, but he kept getting one of the error messages again and again. Finally, he gave up for a bit and he checked again about 10 minutes later.

This time, he got this message:  “Event has ended. Thanks for being a loyal customer.”

He then asked on GameFAQs board about the meaning of these messages and whether he did something wrong or not.

However, on that board, no one gives advice for this problem. A user named boomstickbhg recommended him to contact Sony or whoever runs the direct page.

So, if you also face the issue like explained above, it is better for you to contact Direct PS, Sony or other customer services related to it. So, your problem will be solved by them.
