Finding a Sony PS5 is like participating in an elaborate game of hide-and-seek. It's out there somewhere; on any given day, retailers such as Best Buy, GameStop and Sony's own PlayStation Store may suddenly have a PS5 restock. We're doing our best to update you when that happens, but in the meantime you can try your luck by using our PS5 inventory links below.
If you do happen upon some PlayStation 5 availability and find yourself in a queue to complete the check-out process, use as many devices and web browsers as you can. On a desktop, for example, you could open the store page in Chrome, Edge and Firefox. Then you could do likewise on your phone and tablet. It's like with lottery tickets: The more you have, the better your chances of winning, or in this case buying a console.
Just can't wait another minute? You have little choice but to pay obscene markups on sites like eBay and StockX. On eBay, for example, we've seen the PS5 priced well over $1,000.
Remember to check back here for news and updates on new PS5 availability. You can also browse all the major retailers to see their restock status. The list below has links to the PS5 product pages at each store.
Best Buy is offering the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500 as well as the $400 Digital Edition (which you can find by clicking the button below). The retailer is also offering a slew of accessories on its PS5 landing page.
OK, you've exhausted all of the online and brick-and-mortar retailers, and you've decided you're willing to pay upward of a $300 markup to get this puppy soon. As your friends, we have to tell you: Don't do it. But if you don't want to listen to us, you might want to check out StockX, an eBay alternative that made its name in the secondary market for sneakers and designer clothing. Last time we checked, prices for the PS5 were hovering just below $700.
If you've decided you simply can't wait another moment for Sony to get its act together and flood the market with inventory, eBay is a shortcut to getting your own PS5 right now. That said, let me reiterate our advice: No PS5 is worth spending hundreds over list price, and that's exactly what you'll have to do if you buy from an eBay reseller. The average PS5 price on eBay is about $900.
