PS5 restocks and deals aren't slowing down in June, and it's now much easier to come across the console in the US, the UK, and Australia. In addition, we're now seeing more deals alongside the console, occasionally holding some of the best PS5 games alongside the console for a few extra savings.
The PS5 has been out for nearly three years now, and the days of having to wait for console restocks are long behind us. It's been easier to get ahold of a PS5 for a while now, and deals are more common now we are a few years into the lifespan of the console, and we've made your shopping even easier by pulling together all the best deals in one place.
PS5 restocks live now
Amazon (US): PS5 God of War Raganok bundle in stock - others request an invite
Right now the God of War Ragnarok PS5 bundle is available for $559.99. While it's previously been $50 off, this is still an excellent way to experience one of the best games available on the system a little cheaper than buying separately.
Best Buy: Get the PS5 and God of War Ragnarok bundle
The PS5 is currently available at standard MSRP but you can also pick up the God of War Ragnarok bundle for a combined price cheaper than them both separately.
Walmart: PS5 + God of War Ragnarok bundle in stock
Walmart has the latest PS5 and God of War Ragnarok bundle in stock. You can also choose between the standard PS5 console or PS5 Digital Edition, too. This is the only bundle the retailer has available right now.
Target (US): check local stores for availability
Target sells the PS5 a little differently from everyone else. Instead of a scheduled major restock it will now put the PS5 on sale at select stores each morning. That makes it very difficult to predict availability, so your best option is to check each morning in case the console is available to buy near you.
PlayStation Direct (US): God of War Ragnarok bundle in stock
Sony's official PlayStation Direct store has the God of War Ragnarok bundle in stock now – both the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition are available. You need to sign in to your PSN account to buy and free shipping is included.
Amazon (UK): PS5 console and bundles in stock
The PS5 is in stock at Amazon with delivery expected in a few days. You can also pick up PS5 bundles with God of War Ragnarok or Horizon Forbidden West. All other options are currently sold out, too, so this is the only way to get a console right now at the retailer.
Very: Multiple PS5 bundles available to order
Very has a number of PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition bundles available to buy that include games such as God of War Ragnarok, The Last of Us Part 2 and Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

All are in stock now and available for delivery within days.
PlayStation Direct (UK): PS5 bundles are available now
Sony's official PlayStation Direct store has got a selection of bundles featuring God of War Ragnarok, FIFA 23, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 or extra DualSense controllers.

Game: multiple PS5 bundles in stock
Game has a considerable number of PS5 bundles in stock right now - including the Digital Edition Options start at £389.99 with extras such as a copy of FIFA 23, God of War Ragnarok, The Last of Us: Part 1, Horizon Forbidden West, or an additional DualSense Controller.
Argos: PS5 in stock at some stores
PS5 consoles are now available at some Argos stores, including the latest God of War Ragnarok bundle. However, availability is limited and varies by region, so you need to head to the store page and enter your postcode to see if stock is available nearby for collection or whether a console can be delivered.
John Lewis: PS5 bundle in stock for £589.99
The PS5 used to sell out in a matter of minutes at John Lewis as the retailer always received very limited stock. But now it has a PS5 bundle featuring God of War Ragnarok and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 available to buy for £589.99. Given the way stock has stabilised over the last six months, it should remain available for some time.
Currys: multiple PS5 God of War Ragnarok bundles available
Currys now has a selection of PS5 bundles available to buy. You can choose from a number of options featuring the standard PS5, Digital Edition and a copy of God of War Ragnarok. Extras in these bundles include games and accessories such as FIFA 23, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Gran Turismo 7 an extra controller and wireless headsets.
AO: PS5 + God of War Ragnarok bundle for £599

Scan has some fully packed but pricey PS5 bundles. This time around you can get a PS5, a copy of FIFA 23, an extra DualSense controller and a 1TB WD Black SN850 SSD to give you more storage for all your games. The Digital Edition of this bundle is also in stock.
Smyths Toys: PS5 God of War Ragnarok bundle in stock
The PS5 bundle with God of War Ragnarok is now available to order from Smyths Toys. However, some consoles and bundles are only available for click-and-collect, while others are available for home delivery.
ShopTo: PS5 God of War Ragnarok bundles in stock
ShopTo has some PS5 bundles in stock right now. There's the standard PS5 with God of War Ragnarok, or you can choose to have that and add an extra DualSense Controller. There's also a standard console with a free £20 gift card, which is good value for money. ShopTo only accepts one order per household so only stick to a console for yourself or risk facing their wrath.
BT Shop: PS5 bundles available
PS5 bundles are available with God of War: Ragnarok, FIFA 23, or extra accessories such as a Pulse 3D Wireless Headset or DualSense controller. In some bundles, the controller is included for free, too.
EE: buy the PS5 as part of a new or existing plan
Mobile and broadband network EE will allow you to add a PS5 to your contract if you are a new or existing customer. You simply pay a part of the cost upfront and then pay off the rest of the console bundle over the next 11 months on top of your existing monthly bill.

Where to buy PS5 in the US
For the US, we see consoles fairly regularly at major retailers and it no longer sells out in a matter of minutes at the likes of Amazon and Walmart. In fact, it's been available for weeks now at Walmart and over a month at the official PlayStation Direct store.
Here are the US stores that carry PS5 and Digital Edition consoles regularly. We update this list with all the latest availability and as soon as we get news of an upcoming restock so you can be best prepared to bag a console.
PS5 stock pops up intermittently at Amazon but you need to register your interest in order to buy a console or bundles. Right now, you can request an invitation to buy the PS5 console or Horizon Forbidden West bundle when it's next available. Once it is in stock, you'll have up to 72 hours to make use of your exclusive invite, but you aren't guaranteed a console. You no longer have to be an Amazon Prime member to request an invite, though.
Best Buy previously only allowed Totaltech Members access to its PS5 restock events. That's all changed now, though. Everyone is now able to buy the console when it's in stock including the latest God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West bundles. Availability is fairly stable now, too.
Target used to hold a PS5 restock every few weeks but it's since changed to a new model. Now, the PS5 will be available to buy from a few stores locally each morning, rather than a massive retailer-wide event. That makes it very difficult for us to give you accurate information about console availability, so your best option is to check in each morning and see if any consoles are in stock near you.
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 God of War Ragnarok and Horizon Forbidden West. Availability can be limited, though, so it's best to check if you can order online or pick up one in-store.
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.
Where to buy PS5 in the UK
For the UK, the PS5 is in stock all the time now. Some retailers do sell out from time to time, but it's always available in at least a dozen stores at one time. Depending on the retailer, the number of consoles in stock or the quality of bundles on offer varies, too, so it's best to shop around.
Amazon tends to have at least one console or bundle available at any one time. It can switch between the PS5 by itself, a bundle featuring God of War Ragnarok or the Horizon Forbidden West version. Digital Edition restocks are still harder to find but do pop up regularly. Also, you don't need to be an Amazon Prime member to buy a PS5 any more.
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. Just check that the bundle you order is actually in stock now and not a preorder for a few weeks' time.
Game is a fairly solid source of PS5 consoles and bundles in the UK. Multiple options are available at any one time featuring the latest games and accessories. Just try to avoid the ones that come with unwanted tat such as caps and t-shirts - unless that sort of thing is your bag, baby.
For a long time, Currys used an invite system to hand out its PS5 consoles. Now, it adds a few bundles to its online store during each PS5 restock. These tend to be very expensive options that are packed with extra games and accessories such as PS5 SSDs, steering wheels and wireless headsets.
Sony's official PlayStation Direct store has lots of consoles or bundles in stock at any one time. It's good if you want the standard PS5 by itself or the much harder-to-find Digital Edition. PS Plus members get free delivery, too, while non-members have to buy an additional game or accessory to avoid paying for shipping.
Tracking PS5 restocks at Argos can be a challenge as the retailer distributes consoles to different regions at different times, which means some areas of the UK and Ireland have availability when others might not. Our best advice is simply to check regularly just in case the PS5 or a bundle is available to buy in your area this time around.
When the PS5 is available at Smyths Toys it tends to be through Click and Collect only, though more home delivery options have opened up lately. Individual stores have a very limited number of consoles, too, so you just have to be quick enough to secure one before they sell out. That's less frequent now, at least.
ShopTo has the PS5 in stock fairly regularly, but it's usually just the latest bundle on offer. You can choose to customise yourself in some cases by adding extra games or accessories, but these are usually limited to what the retailer decides is available - and you pay full price anyway. Look out for bundles with a £20 gift card, though, as this is effectively free money to spend on any extras.
BT Shop: PS5
BT distributes the PS5 through its own BT Shop. In order in order to buy one, though, you sometimes need to be an existing BT customer. When the console is available you can log in to your BT account and there should be an option in the 'Your Offers' section to get an access code. Enter this on the PS5 store page at the BT Shop and you'll be able to buy a console or bundle when available.
Similar to BT, the PS5 is an EE customer exclusive. Anyone currently on an EE contract - or that signs up as a new customer - can add the PS5 to their plan if it's in stock. You simply pay a part of the cost upfront and then pay off the rest of the console over the next 11 months on top of your existing monthly bill.
Where to buy PS5 in Australia
The PS5 is now frequently in stock at Amazon, so there’s no waiting in line to get one – whether you want the console with a disc drive or without. We’ve even seen a small discount on the PS5 God of War Ragnarok bundle this year. As a massive online-only retailer, Amazon tends to have online stock ready to deliver to your door more regularly than some brick-and-mortar stores.
While PS5 stock issues have eased at some retailers, Big W’s stock is still a little spotty, and you might have better luck finding it at your nearest store rather than online. To save you from running around, you can check availability at nearby stores using Big W’s website. The retailer also offers the console bundled with God of War Ragnarok.
EB Games was one of the first retailers to sell out of the PS5, as it took a significant number of pre-orders for the console back in 2021. Stock issues have eased at EB Games now, and both the regular console and digital editions are available to buy. EB Games also offers the ability to check your local store’s stock along with click and collect.
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. Similar to other retailers, we’ve spotted JB Hi-Fi also offering a small discount on the PS5 console with God of War Ragnarok bundled in.
If you want to buy from the maker itself, Sony also has stock of the PS5. Buying directly from Sony also gets you free shipping on orders over AU$200 (and yes, the PS5 is well over that amount). 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 now has regular PS5 stock, but its website says the product is only available for click and collect. Entering in 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 is an independently owned game retailer, making it a good choice if you want to buy local. Stock issues have eased, and you can now 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.
The Good Guys might not be the first place you think of when you want to buy a PS5, but this big retailer does have stock of the latest console. You’re able to buy in store or online, but your only option for online orders is to click and collect – The Good Guys won’t deliver the console to your home for the time being.
Where to buy PS5 in Canada
Though Amazon Canada doesn't appear to restrict PS5 sales to Prime members, it seems like a long time since the console was available to buy. We'd suggest keeping an eye on that product description in case it's updated with any information about exclusive early access for Amazon Prime members as that's helped nail down restock dates in other regions.
How to buy PS5: top tips
While the PS5 is widely available in the US and the UK, other territories aren't quite as lucky. Things are a little shakier in Canada and Australia as well as some other regions so we've put together our top five tips to bag the coveted console where you are.
1. Follow the key retailers
The list above will keep you on top of all the latest PS5 restock updates as soon as they come in. Still, you should keep checking frequently as we don't always get a heads up and you never really know when more stock will land so you might get lucky.
2. Prepare your wallet
You likely already have the money for a PS5 squirrelled away if you're looking to buy right now, but you want to make sure everything is set up at each retailer, too. Have your card and shipping details prepared on a separate page ahead of time or make sure they're stored and correct with your retailers of choice for a fast checkout.
3. Sign in
You may already have an account with your favorite retailers, but be sure to sign in ahead of restocks. Needing to log in ahead can eat away valuable seconds at checkout and you'll need all the time you can get to give yourself the best chance to buy a PS5 today. Plus, you can often save your checkout details with your login (if you're comfortable doing this) and track your order a little easier. We'd recommend making accounts for each retailer offering PS5 restocks.
4. Find and save the product page
You don't want to be left navigating the virtual aisles when the chance to buy a PS5 does arrive. We've linked straight out to all the known product pages here so when stock does land you can go straight to where you need to be in order to place an order.
5. Don't give up
There are going to be many more chances to buy a PS5 in the near future, as the stock situation improves. If you come up unlucky during a PS5 restock, however, keep refreshing the retailer's page - we've seen stock return for quickfire refreshes in a matter of minutes in the past so you don't want to give up at the first hurdle. Still no luck? Stick with us for all the latest news and rumours.
PS5 restocks - Frequently asked questions
We've been tracking PS5 restocks for the better part of three years now and are using our experience to help answer some of your most burning questions.
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.
I managed to buy a PS5 - what now?
Congratulations! Hopefully, it hasn't been too much of an ordeal and you've only got a short wait until your new console arrives. If you're looking to pass the time while waiting, we've got a lot of great features and deals hubs for you to check out.
