Where to buy a PS5

After almost two years of frustrating stock issues, Sony’s console is easy to find in stock

For the first two years of the PS5’s existence, saying that it was difficult to buy is an understatement. Weekly restocks at Walmart, Amazon, Sony, and other retailers were never enough to quell the demand, as they’d sell out in seconds. But, I’m happy to report that the situation has improved to the point where it’s simple enough to buy a PS5 at retail price from practically any store you want.

In case you haven’t gotten one yet, you’ll be able to find links below to several stores that carry the console — both its $499.99 disc edition and the $399.99 digital, disc-less version that’s a little skinnier, but no less powerful. While you shop, bear in mind that each PS5 has just 860 GB of storage, so you’ll probably want to buy a PS5 SSD.

What about PS5 console bundles?

Since its 2020 launch, Sony has debuted a few game pack-ins with its console, like Horizon Forbidden West, God of War: Ragnarök, and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. Those games normally sell for $69.99 individually, but they’re about $10 cheaper when included with the PS5 (the bundle containing the game and console sold for $559.99). However, Sony hasn’t sold limited-edition designs of the PS5 yet.

Update (March 14): This post was originally made to point readers to where they might hypothetically find a PS5 at its launch, even though most retailers were in and out of stock for over two years. It’s now much easier to buy one of these consoles, so we changed this post to list where you can find a PS5 right now.
