PS5: $499 at Walmart
Walmart has just launched its first batch of PS5 stock, but things have sold out pretty quickly. Walmart is advising customers to return at 3pm ET for more stock, though we’d keep refreshing for a little longer as we have seen stock quickly return in flashes in the past.
PS5: Check for stock updates at Best Buy
We 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.
PS5: Check latest stock updates at Amazon
Everyone’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.
Where to buy PS5
If you need to know where to buy PS5 quickly, and chances are you do, you’ll find all the latest PS5 stock updates from retailers likely to carry day one units just below. Keep checking these links as you never know when more consoles will hit the shelves.
Based on this morning’s options for where to buy PS5, we’d recommend keeping an eye on GameStop and Target for more stock refreshes. However, when Amazon and Best Buy do offer up their own opportunities to buy PS5 you’ll want to be first in line there as well.
PS5 Launch Day bundle: $799.99 at GameStop
GameStop was offering this Launch Day bundle earlier today, but stock levels have since dropped. However, it’s still one of your best chances to buy PS5 on launch day, as we’ve been seeing stock refreshing happening in the hours after this bundle became available, and the higher price tag looks like it’s warding off scalpers.
PS5: Check latest stock updates at Target
Target is the most recent retailer to offer PS5 stock in the US today, and while we’ve seen that wave come and go we may well see more consoles hitting the shelves later today. Plus, this stock was organized by region, so it’s worth checking in frequently to see if your area has anywhere to buy PS5.
Where to buy PS5 Digital Edition
So far we’ve seen the PS5 Digital Edition selling out faster in the US, which is to be expected as it’s the cheaper console and sold extremely quickly over the pre-order period. We’re bringing you all the latest information on where to buy PS5 Digital Edition just below, so keep checking those links.
PS5 Digital Launch Day Bundle: $749.99 at GameStop
PS5 Digital Edition stock is also out, but you might be able to snap up the Digital Launch Day bundle if you land at the right time (or keep refreshing until you do). We were seeing this bundle flashing in and out but that seems to have slowed – still, you never know when more stock will arrive. You’re picking up a load of PS Store credit here, with a PS Plus subscription, extra controller, a PS5 media remote and HD camera as well.
Where to buy PS5 accessories
PS5 DualSense controller: $69.99 at Amazon
Amazon 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.
PS5 Pulse 3D headset: $99.99 at Amazon
It’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.
PS5 DualSense charging station: $29.99 at Best Buy
Best 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.
PS5 HD camera: $59.99 at Amazon
If 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.
Save $10 on select PS5 games: From $49.99 at Amazon
Certain PS5 games are $10 off at Amazon right now. 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.
Best Buy members save $10 on select PS5 games:
$59.99 $49.99 at Best Buy
My Best Buy members can also receive $10 back in rewards when they buy PS5 games today. That means you can stock your collection for less right now and be well prepared for your new console. If you’re not already a member it’s both free and easy to sign up and to cancel.
Where to buy PS5: which retailers will have stock?
There are a few retailers who are likely to be offering up the chance to buy PS5 today, so getting ahead of the game and keeping an eye on the stores below will put you in a good position for grabbing those flashes of stock.
These retailers were all offering PS5 pre-orders all those weeks ago, making them good bets for new stock at launch and are also large enough to potentially offer up a decent amount of consoles on the shelves. For up to date stock information on where to buy PS5, we’d recommend checking the quick links above.
Amazon 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.
Best Buy had a solid PS5 stock level compared to other retailers last time these consoles were available to order. That means we’re optimistic for a relatively large inventory here. 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 today as well.
Newegg announced earlier that it would have PS5 stock ready to buy at launch today, however it will be on back-order. We saw a brief flash of stock that quickly ran out in under a minute at midnight, so stay tuned for more updates.
GameStop was the first retailer offering the chance to buy PS5 at launch today. 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.
If you’re really struggling to buy PS5 today, 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.
Where to buy PS5 in Australia
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
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.
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.
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.
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.

Where to buy PS5 FAQs
How 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 at the end of the day.
1. Find your retailers
Use 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 wallet
We’re sure you’ve already prepared to spend some cash today, 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 in
If 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 page
We’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 up
If 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.
When will you be able to buy PS5?
We saw PS5 stock live at midnight, and refreshes have been (sparsely) rolling out through the early hours.
We’d recommend you keep checking in throughout the day. Stock may roll in during the early hours of the morning, but with Walmart announcing that you’ll be able to buy PS5 at 12.00, 3.00, 6.00 and 9.00 p.m. EST we’d be paying particularly close attention around these times – and between 8 and 9am.
Of course, anything could happen and there’s been no other information on when other retailers will open their doors, so you’ll need to stay on your toes if you’re looking to buy PS5 today.
Can you buy PS5 in store?
Ahead of launch, Sony announced that you won’t be able to buy PS5 in stores at release. That means you’ll want to head online to buy PS5 today, so keep your eyes peeled for the latest stock updates above.
The move comes after stock shortages saw the PS5 pre-order window falling flat after just a few short hours. That, combined with efforts to minimise footfall in brick and mortar stores during the global pandemic has pushed the PS5 launch online this year.
Don’t worry though, we’re well versed in scouring the web for breaking stock, so we’ll be showing you exactly where to buy PS5 as more stock becomes available online throughout the day. Plus, you can still collect via curbside pickup at certain retailers.
Will there be more chances to buy PS5?
If you do miss out today, 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.
Should you buy PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition?
Sony is sending two next-gen consoles to the shelves today – 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.
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.
