The news regarding PS5 availability has been bleak for months. As you’ve no doubt seen by now, 2020 wasn’t kind to gamers, with the next-gen console selling out the moment it was released in early November, and it has continued to be out of stock ever since. Despite a number of inventory drops at major retailers, few people have actually managed to claim a console since ordinary users have had to compete with bots and resellers. Right now the only consoles you can buy are marked up to obscene levels at reseller sites like eBay and StockX, often at twice or more their retail value. 

One bit of good news: Earlier this month at CES Sony confirmed that a number of games, such as Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Little Devil Inside and Solar Ash, are on track for their scheduled release dates in the first half of the year. So if you already have a PlayStation 5 in hand, good times lie ahead. But for the rest of us, inventory remains virtually nonexistent. 

Twitter continues to be a source to check for restock news, even though we’re seeing fewer large inventory drops. Instead, retailers seem to be shifting to a policy of smaller, more frequent drops that sell out rapidly and without much online fanfare. Just this week, in fact, CNET Sony Direct dropped some inventory which, of course, sold out quickly. 

In any event, it’ll be awhile before a PS5 is easy to find. But I’ll be keeping an eye out for restocks nonetheless and will update this article when it looks like you might be able to score a PS5.

The PS5 is available in two versions: There’s a $500 model with Blu-ray and an otherwise identical $400 digital-only version with no disc slot. At this point, people are happy to get their hands on either one, but if you don’t have a library of optical discs — for Blu-ray movies, used games or old PS4 games — CNET recommends you go with the $400 version.

Remember to check back here for news and updates on new PS5 availability. You can also browse all the major retailers to see what their restock status is: The list below has links to the PS5 product pages at each store. 

PS5 restock possibilities

You can check out Amazon’s page for the $400 Digital Edition via the button below, or, if you’d rather, get in line for the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500.

You can check inventory on the $400 Digital Edition at Walmart by clicking the button below, or you can try to snag the pricier PS5 with Blu-ray for $500.

Target will be offering the PS5 with Blu-ray for $500 in addition to the PS5 Digital Edition, which you can find by clicking the button below.

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 around $700.
