Where to buy a PS5: Everything we know about how to get Sony's new console

Having trouble finding something Playstation 5 The you’re not the only one. Sony continues to struggle to meet demand – and demand vast: PS5 was recently named Fastest-selling console in American history. Major retailers including Best Buy, Walmart, Gametop, Target and Amazon cannot get up to speed and their limited supply is leaving customers empty handed and disappointed.

As of April 5, no major retailer has a PS5 in stock. Despite the occasional PS5 inventory dropping at various stores, the gaming console continues to sell in both its configurations: The $ 500 model with Blu-ray and cheap $ 400 digital-only version With no optical drive. If you are willing to pay a lot more than the sticker price, you can get a PlayStation 5 or PS5 bundle at a reseller like eBay or StockX. But we recommend you wait.

In a few more months, we expect PS5 supplies to increase, and then you might regret spending $ 1,000 or more instead of waiting for it. When retailers can have inventory drop and offer gaming consoles for sale online, for the latest updates, be sure to check back here often.

You can see where the PS5 is available with you; For example, Twitter is a good source of restock rumors. But we sometimes get direct words from retailers and tipster about upcoming PlayStation 5 console inventory, and we update this post immediately. Again, be aware: this will likely take months before the general inventory level in stores is anticipated, so your own PS5 will become a challenge by summer at the earliest. Below you will find a list of all the major retailers (and some high-profile resellers), where you can monitor stock and availability.

We do not recommend spending more than retail to get the PS5, but if you must have a console right now, eBay is the shortcut to get your console. That said, the list is expected to pay hundreds; The average PS5 on eBay costs about $ 800.

If you have exhausted all of the usual retail options and you are willing to pay more than hundreds of list price, you can check out Stock X, an eBay option, which is the secondary market for sneakers and designer clothing I have made my name.
