Theis as elusive today as it was three months ago when Sony unveiled the next generation console. At this point, the PS5 is sold out in both configurations: and the slightly cheaper 400 only digital version without optical drive. Nevertheless, the big retailers (as well as Sony itself) have in recent months received sporadic stock drops and released it in eruptions. To see the latest updates on when retailers may have stock and offer it for sale online, you need to check back here often.
You can monitor where the PS5 is available alone; Twitter, for example, is a good source of rumors of reconstruction. But we occasionally get notified directly from retailers and tipsters about upcoming inventory, and we update this post immediately. This is true: It will still take months before something close to normal stock levels appear in stores, so getting your own PS5 will probably be a challenge until the summer, at least. Here is a list of all the majopr dealers (and a few high-profile dealers) where you can monitor stock and availability.
PS5 restores options at major retailers
You can check Amazon̵
Once in stock, Best Buy offers PS5 with Blu-ray for $ 500 along with $ 400 Digital Edition (which you can find by clicking the button below). The retailer also offers a range of accessories on the PS5 landing page.
When in stock, Target offers the PS5 with Blu-ray for $ 500 in addition to the PS5 Digital Edition, which you can find by clicking the button below.
You can check the availability of the $ 400 Digital Edition at Walmart by clicking the button below, or you can try to catch the more expensive PS5 with Blu-ray for $ 500.
We do not recommend using more than retail to get a PS5, but if you need a console right now, eBay is your shortcut to getting a console. That said, expect to pay hundreds over the list; The average PS5 price on eBay is about $ 800.
If you have used up all the usual retail options and are willing to pay hundreds over the list price, you may want to check out StockX, an eBay option that made its name in the secondary market for sneakers and designer clothing. Last time we checked, the PS5 prices just swung north for $ 700. We do not think it’s worth it, but let your conscience (and your wallet) be your guide).
