Click here to refresh the page and get the very latest updates on where to buy PS5 as soon as stock information comes in.

If you’re looking for where to buy PS5, you’re far from alone. The PS5 is now available to buy globally, following an initial launch on November 12, with the rest of the world following today, on November 19. That means shoppers everywhere are wondering where to buy PS5 right now, and you’ll find all the latest stock updates right here. 

We’re expecting more chances to buy PS5 at Walmart today, with a restock currently scheduled for 3pm EST. In addition, the Sony Direct queue – that is, buying a PS5 straight from the manufacturer – has also been popping up with new units over the last week, which means there’s still some hope for grabbing PS5 stock this week. To keep your expectations in check when you’re looking to buy PS5, though, we’ve seen the same pattern over and over again: retailers crushed by demand, and consoles selling out in minutes at most. 

Our advice is to keep checking the retail links below, though, because you never know when PS5 stock might return.

Like we say, Walmart at 3PM ET is the only PS5 stock we’re guaranteed to see on November 19 in the US, but we’ll be scanning all retailers at all times of day to help you buy PS5. Use the quick links at the side to find the latest on PS5 stock where you are. 

We’re bringing you all the latest PS5 restock information right here, so you can find out where to buy PS5 quickly and easily check all the latest retailers offering stock. That means you’ll want to keep this page bookmarked and keeping watching the retailers below, as you never know when the chance to buy PS5 will come up again. 

If you still haven’t been able to buy a PS5, we’d recommend staying in close contact with Walmart, Best Buy and Amazon over the next few weeks. We’ve also heard rumblings of more opportunities to buy PS5 over Black Friday and Cyber Monday. GameStop and Walmart have so far suggested they will restock the PS5 over the November 27 shopping weekend, and we expect more retailers to follow suit.

PS5: Check latest stock updates at AmazonEveryone’s waiting for PS5 stock to drop at Amazon, which means you’ll want to be one of the first in line when it does. As a massive online retailer, Amazon may well have more stock to play with today so we’ll keep this link here in case consoles go live soon.View Deal

PS5: Check for stock updates at Best BuyWe were previously seeing this Best Buy PS5 stock spring back to life with a few refreshes however it seems inventory has run dry here. The retailer announced that it would be reloading its stock every few minutes to give everyone a chance to bag one but we’ve since seen things quieten down. We’d keep an eye here, though, as more stock flashes may appear in the next hour.View Deal

We’re bringing you all the latest information on where to buy PS5 Digital Edition just below, so keep checking those links.

Where to buy PS5 accessories

If you’ve managed to secure your new console, or you’re getting ready for the moment you do, you might want to stock up on the latest accessories to make that first unboxing truly special. 

You can buy PS5 accessories from a range of retailers right now, and we’re seeing good stock levels on DualSense controllers in particular. However, the Pulse3D headset will be another chase. We’ve seen stock landing at Amazon so far, but it’s snapped up quickly so keep checking the links below. 

Not only that, but if you’re wondering where to buy PS5 games you’ll want to head to either Best Buy or Amazon. We’re seeing $10 off next-gen titles at these retailers at the moment, so get them in your cart quick. 

PS5 DualSense controller: $69.99 at AmazonAmazon has the PS5 DualSense controller in stock for $69.99 right now – but we don’t know how long this inventory will last as the day goes on so we’d place your order sooner rather than later. 

You’ll also find the PS5 controller in stock at Best Buy for the same price right now as well.View Deal

PS5 Pulse 3D headset: $99.99 at AmazonIt’s been pretty difficult to buy the PS5 Pulse 3D headset so far, but Amazon has had a stock refresh on the official headphones. It is now out of stock, unfortunately – though we’d keep checking in for more updates and keep an eye on Best Buy for another chance as well. View Deal

PS5 DualSense charging station: $29.99 at Best BuyBest Buy has the PS5 DualSense charging station available for store pickup in a number of locations right now. However, you can also grab one at GameStop if you’d prefer to have it delivered. View Deal

PS5 HD camera: $59.99 at AmazonIf you’re looking to use your PlayStation VR headset with your brand new PS5 you’ll want to pick up the HD camera accessory straight away. Thankfully, Amazon is one of the few retailers with this particular peripheral in stock today.View Deal

You’ll find some of these titles also available for less in Best Buy’s Member Rewards program below, but some different games are included in Amazon’s own discounts – including Spider-Man: Miles Morales, for example. View Deal

Best Buy members save $10 on select PS5 games: $59.99 $49.99 at Best BuyMy Best Buy members can also receive $10 back in rewards when they buy PS5 games today.

Where to buy PS5: which retailers will have stock?

We’ve seen all the retailers we expected to offer up the chance to buy PS5 roll out their first wave of stock now. However, we’d recommend checking in with these stores frequently as there’s no telling when that second wave will begin. 

We would recommend starting with the larger stores. They’re likely to receive more PS5 stock than smaller retailers, and their sites are likely better equipped to handle surges of high demand. 

If you’re looking for where to buy PS5 this weekend, then, we’d start here and keep flicking through those quick links further up the page. 

AmazonAmazon had a split second of stock when the PS5 first launched its pre-orders, but continued to roll out more units throughout the days that followed. That means this is one you’ll want to keep an eye on throughout the release window – plus you can grab fast, free delivery if you’re a Prime member as well.View Deal

Best BuyBest Buy had a solid PS5 stock level compared to other retailers last time these consoles were available to order. Over the Xbox launch earlier this week, Best Buy was discounting controllers with the purchase of a console so we might even see discounts on Sony’s side in the future as well.View Deal

NeweggNewegg announced earlier that it would have PS5 stock ready to buy at launch, however it will be on back-order. We saw a brief flash of stock that quickly ran out in under a minute at midnight on launch day, so stay tuned for more updates.  View Deal

GameStopGameStop was the first retailer offering the chance to buy PS5 at launch. While the individual consoles sold out pretty quickly, we saw higher value bundles lasting a little longer. These offers do exceed the usual PS5 price, but you’re getting your money’s worth in accessories and games so it’s a good bet if you’re looking to go all out on day one.View Deal

WalmartWalmart had the PS5 for its first launch date, November 12, and spread out the restock over the course of nine hours. Now, we know the retailer will have more PS5 stock on November 19 at 3PM ET – though we fully expect this to vanish in moments, this is your best shot at getting one this week.View Deal

StockXIf you’re really struggling to buy PS5, there is another option. StockX is a marketplace retailer that allows sellers to post an asking price, buyers to post a buying price and an immediate transaction when both requests match. Prices are, obviously, a little higher here, but unlike eBay StockX ships all products to its warehouse for inspection before sending them on to you. We’d recommend waiting this first wave of stock out a little longer, but if you’re desperate there’s plenty of stock making it a reliable option today.View Deal

Where to buy PS5 in the UK

PS5’s launch day in the UK is finally here, so you’ll find all the retailers offering chances to buy PS5 today as well as their scheduled times just below. 

Where to buy PS5 Digital Edition in the UKWith EE or BT? Here’s where you can buy PS5

BT & EE customers can order a PS5 on release day – November 19 – via your MyBT account (login required).

BT and EE have announced they’ve secured PS5 stock for their customers, but it’s not clear how much stock will be available, and it’s likely to go quick – as we’ve seen with stock everywhere else.

If you’re an EE pay monthly mobile customer, you also have the option to order the console and add the cost to your price plan, splitting it over 11 interest-free installments with EE’s ‘Add to Plan’ service.

Where to buy PS5 in the UK

AmazonAmazon did have a robust level of pre-order stock during the first phase of the PS5 going live at retailers in the UK. Don’t get us wrong, it still flew off the shelves, but we did see it holding on a little longer before flatlining. Amazon UK has also confirmed it will have more PS5 stock available for release date in the UK on November 19 at midday, but we’ve not seen it happen yet as Amazon copes with demand.View Deal

CurrysCurrys had a few waves of PS5 pre-orders available earlier in the year, but it’s confirmed there will be no PS5s on launch day. Currys has previously used a queuing system for these next-gen console releases, so things at least feel a little more civilized here, even if getting hold of a console is still uncertain.View Deal

VeryVery was the most recent retailer to offer PS5 pre-orders in the UK, and briefly had more stock on launch day. You can often beat the first wave on PS5 stock by grabbing extra accessories as well, as Very does keep stock aside to sell alongside controllers and headsets. We’ve seen this happen with the Xbox Series X, too, which also flashed back into stock after release earlier this week (before selling out again).View Deal

ArgosArgos splits its stock by region, which means you’ve got a significantly smaller pool of competitors in the arena if you’re looking to buy PS5. Sadly, though, Argos has confirmed it won’t have PS5 stock available for launch day in the UK.View Deal

Where to buy PS5 in Australia

Amazon AU

The world’s largest retailer is in a similar boat as it was during the earlier round of pre-orders – it’s already stopped taking pre-orders, and did so shortly after they went live. They may have more pre-order stock available but it won’t be launch day stock, if you’re lucky you’ll get it before the end of the year.View Deal

The Gamesmen

Although The Gamesmen (Aussie independent games retailer)  announced on Twitter that it’ll have pre-order stock at 10am, the site currently appears to be down. Keep checking back in to see if you can get your hands on something.

EB Games

While EB Games was one of the first retailers to sell out, they also offered 2021 pre-orders of the console for quite a while, but even those appear to be currently out of stock. Yet again, this doesn’t mean there won’t be any more chances today to score a pre-order, so keep checking in with them to try your chances.

JB Hi-Fi

JB Hi-Fi Australia – one of the country’s largest tech retail outlets – is in the same boat as many, with pre-order stock (even for the December shipment) currently out of stock. With that said, stock seems to fluctuate regularly, so keep checking in to see if you can score a console.

Sony Online

As with most places, even Sony itself is out of stock currently. It’s just as good an option as other retailers in terms of price (full RRP) and free shipping, but you’ll need ot keep checking back in for when they get more stock. 

Where to buy PS5 in CanadaWhere to buy PS5 FAQsHow to buy PS5 when stock lands

When PS5 stock does arrive, how do you make sure it’s yours? If you’re well positioned you can make the most of that first opportunity to buy PS5 and leap ahead of the crowds, but of course that’s easier said than done. There are some things you can do beforehand, however, to make sure you’re not left wondering where to buy PS5 much longer.

1. Find your retailersUse the list above to keep checking your retailers alongside our constant stock updates to make sure you’re always clued in on where to buy PS5 at any given moment. We’d recommend prioritising larger retailers as they’re the most likely to offer up more PS5 stock and are also already set up for fast shipping as well. 

2. Prepare your walletWe’re sure you’ve already prepared to spend some cash, but having your details at the ready will save you valuable time when that first wave of stock hits. Better yet, if you’re comfortable saving your payment details or using PayPal you’re in for a much less stressful experience.

3. Sign inIf you already have an account with select retailers, be sure to sign in ahead of launch. Not only will you save time adding your email address and shipping information later on, but it makes tracking your order a lot easier as well. Of course, if you’re not comfortable signing in or creating an account, keep your email address and shipping information handy for a quick copy and paste when you’re against the clock.

4. Find the product pageWe’ll be linking you straight to the product page of either the PS5 or the PS5 Digital Edition when stock does arrive. However, if you’re going it alone you’ll want to make sure you’re on the correct product page ahead of time to avoid spending those crucial seconds searching for the PS5 itself on a retailer website. Plus, if demand skyrockets, sites run the risk of crashing which can be particularly frustrating if you’re still trying to navigate the virtual aisles. 

5. Don’t give upIf all is going to plan but stock runs out at the final hurdle don’t give up. Over the pre-order period, and during the Xbox launch, we were seeing stock flashing in and out within seconds which means a speedy refresh can propel you straight to the front of the line as stock becomes available again. This goes for those wondering where to buy PS5 later in the day as well. 

Will there be more chances to buy PS5?

If you missed out on launch day itself, don’t panic. We’ve seen more Xbox stock launching after Microsoft’s own initial launch earlier in the week, so it’s likely retailers will offer up more chances to buy PS5 over the coming days. These opportunities will all be equally competitive, however, so you’ll want to stay tuned for the latest updates right here. 

When will you be able to buy PS5?

We saw PS5 stock live at midnight on release day, and refreshes have been (sparsely) rolling out over the course of the day. Every retailer has now launched its first wave of stock, but you never know when more units will be available. We’d recommend checking back frequently to be in with the best chance of grabbing that next-gen console.

Should you buy PS5 now or wait?

The PS5 launch is unlike any release Sony has seen before. With unprecedented demand, limited shipping options, and a whole host of further issues resulting from the global pandemic, there’s little wonder PS5 stock is so scarce right now. 

We would usually suggest waiting a little while to buy PS5 for the best price – be that through gradual discounts or (more likely) bundle offers that include extra games for discounted prices after release. However, 2020 has been a year like no other and we would be extremely surprised to see options to buy PS5 bundles (for discounted prices that is) before the holidays. Plus, with some retailers pushing their PS5 pre-orders to 2021, these stock shortages may well last longer than the initial release window. 

All of that means we would recommend trying your hardest to buy PS5 today or in the next few days. We don’t know what availability will look like moving forwards, and you’ll want to get your order in as early as possible for timely shipping. 

What is the PS5 price?

The PS5 price is $499 (£449 / AU$749.95). That puts it at the same price point as the Xbox Series X, but that shouldn’t come as a surprise to many, seeing as it’s difficult to imagine the PS5 price exceeding $500 when it’s up against the affordable spread put out by Microsoft.

However, the cheaper PS5 Digital Edition price is $399.99 (£359.99 / AU$599.95), which does flag some concerns considering the Xbox Series S’s $299 price tag. However, the PS5 Digital Edition will run the same specs as the fully-fledged console, further cementing its position in the market as a high value for money option. 

That means bargain hunters can still experience everything the PS5 has to offer while foregoing the opportunity to play physical PS4 and PS5 games or save cash by buying in the second-hand market. It’s an excellent proposition that will certainly capture those going for sheer value for money at launch.

Should you buy PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition?

Sony is sent two next-gen consoles to the shelves this week – the PS5 and the PS5 Digital Edition. The version you buy will ultimately come down to one question; do you want to use disks? 

The cheaper $399 PS5 Digital Edition doesn’t offer a disk drive, but unlike the Xbox Series S, Microsoft’s own digital only console, it runs the same specs as its fully fledged sibling. That means you’ll be able to play PS5 games at the same quality for $100 less. 

However, that SSD will fill up quickly and if you’ve already got a substantial PS4 game collection (PS5 is backwards compatible with a vast supply of previous generation titles) then it might be worth thinking about springing for the more expensive version. 

However, it’s difficult to find out where to buy PS5 right now, with retailers launching incredibly limited numbers of consoles into the wild. If you absolutely want to buy PS5 today then, it might come down to which console you find in stock.
