The PS5 is here, which means Santa’s likely going to get a lot of requests for a PlayStation 5 under the tree this year. We already know quite a bit about what to expect from the next generation of PlayStation, which was released on Nov. 12.

PS5s quickly sold out following the initial frenzy, but retailers keep restocking. Below, we break down everything we know about how, when, and where to get a PS5 console.

How much does the PS5 cost?

The standard PlayStation 5 costs $499.99, and it includes a Blu-ray disc drive.

For the first time in PlayStation history, Sony is also offering a cheaper model without an optical disc drive. The PS5 Digital Edition costs $399.99 — $100 less than the alternative.

Where can I buy a PS5?

A bunch of places, provided that they have them in stock. (And there aren't enough to go around.) And that happens periodically, at which point they pretty much immediately sell out. But you can get them. We know because we have.

You can check retailers’ landing pages for the PS5, which we’ve listed below. Bookmark this page, and you can check them every day. Some retails (like Walmart) often tell you when the next wave of consoles will be available.

Update (Sept. 17): This post has been updated with new information about the PS5 price and release date following Sony’s Sept. 16 presentation.

Update (Nov. 25): This post has been updated with new information about the PS5 price and release date, following the PS5’s release date.
