PS5 stock in the US
Walmart: PS5 | PS5 Digital Edition
Walmart regularly has the PS5 in stock. It's generally limited to one or two bundles at a time - and it rarely has the console available to buy alone. Keep an eye out for bundles featuring big first-party games, such as God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West.
GameStop: PS5 | PS5 Digital Edition
GameStop used to cycle between offering the PS5 online or through exclusive in-store restock events in large (and expensive) bundles. Thankfully, those days are now behind us, so now you can choose from official bundles featuring Marvel's Spider-Man 2 for example. Availability can be limited, though, so it's best to check if you can order online or pick up one in-store.
PlayStation Direct: PS5 | PS5 Digital Edition
Sony's official PlayStation Direct store is usually the most stable when it comes to PS5 console and bundle availability. It tends to have the most options in stock, too, so it's worth checking if you want a wider range of games or accessories along with your console. Restocks are now open to all as well, but you get free delivery as a PS Plus member or when you buy an accessory at the same time.

Very: View all PS5 bundles
Online department store Very has lots of PS5 bundles available at any one time now. It tends to have a few more customisable options compared to other retailers, so it's good if you have some different games or accessories in mind to buy with a console.

JB Hi-Fi: PS5
JB Hi-Fi is beginning to have more regular stock of the PS5, but only if you’re after the regular console with a disc drive. The huge retailer doesn’t have stock of the digital edition on its website at the time of writing, but you can always check your local store.
Sony: PS5 | PS5 Digital Edition
If you want to buy from the maker itself, Sony also often has stock of the PS5. Buying directly from Sony also gets you free shipping on orders over AU$200. You can request a price match too, so you shouldn’t have a problem getting it cheaper from Sony if a competitor has a lower price.
Target: PS5 | PS5 Digital Edition
Target now has regular PS5 stock, but its website says the product is only available for click-and-collect. Entering your postcode on Target’s website will allow you to easily check stock in nearby stores, and you can reserve it using the click-and-collect feature. You can also go in-store to purchase, though we don’t know when you’ll be able to order online for delivery to your house.
The Gamesmen: PS5 | PS5 Digital Edition
The Gamesmen is an independently owned game retailer, making it a good choice if you want to buy local. Stock issues have eased, and you can buy the regular console or the digital edition from The Gamesmen in store or online. Shipping costs will vary, or you can pick one up from the Penshurst store if you’re nearby.
PS5 stock - FAQs
How often is the PS5 available to buy?
Generally speaking, the PS5 is now readily available in the US and UK in both disc and digital versions standalone and with bundles. Availability is a little trickier in Canada and Australia but we've seen good changes happening at both big box online stores and smaller outlets too.
How much does a PS5 cost?
The PS5 costs $499 (£479 / AU$799.95) - that's the same price as Microsoft's Xbox Series X in the US, but more expensive in the UK and Australia after the recent price hike. The cheaper PS5 Digital Edition is priced at $399.99 (£389.99 / AU$649.95).
It's almost guaranteed that both versions of the console will remain at this price for some time. Demand is still astronomically high for the console and Sony sees no reason to discount it for the time being. It even bumped up the price of the console in many regions due to increased production costs.
Should I buy the PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition?
The standard PS5 is able to play Ultra HD Blu-ray discs and physical games which makes it the better all-rounder if you want to build up a collection. In contrast, the PS5 Digital Edition is a little cheaper and doesn't include a disc drive as the name would imply. This means you're solely limited to buying and streaming games and media from the PlayStation Store through the Game Catalog and streaming apps respectively. The choice will depend on your lifestyle.
