PLAYSTATION 5’s aren’t exactly easy to come by. New stock drops at the likes of Argos, Smyths, Very, and Game seem to be snapped up before most of us even have a chance to get on the websites, so it pays to be super-fast when rumors of an imminent release begin to swirl.
Here’s the latest information on PlayStation 5 stock status across the US, although it is worth bearing in mind that some lucky shoppers have reported finding the elusive console stocked in some random physical stores.
Sony Confirms “Unprecedented” Demand for their Next-Gen console
— PlayStation (@PlayStation) November 19, 2020
Just a month after it was first released it appears the PS5 is comfortably beating sales of the Xbox Series X/S, but it has left Sony facing an uphill task to produce enough of the prized console. On 25 November PlayStation tweeted thanks to all those who had already bought the PS5, and promised to have new stock on the way “before the end of the year”.
For anyone still hoping to bag a PS5 before the big day, it is worth noting that there are two options available, one of which has proved easier to the source. Sony offers a model priced at $499, which features a built-in disc-reader, and a $399 digital-only version. With many gamers choosing to download games and a whole host of streaming services offering nearly limitless online content, it is no surprise that the cheaper digital-only PS5 has sold out first in most stores.
If you’re hoping to pick up a PlayStation 5, check below for the latest information on stock levels at Walmart, Costco, GameStop, Kohl’s, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, and Sony.
Updates on Where to Buy the PlayStation 5
It’s been rumored that more PS5 stock will be made available today, but we haven’t seen anything appear just yet. Sony had already suggested that more PS5 consoles would be released before the end of the year, however, it’s looking increasingly unlikely you’ll be able to get one until 2021. Sony’s brand new console is completely sold out at all retailers right now, with many saying they will be getting a restock early next year. Do keep an eye on this page throughout the day, though as we’ll be sharing the latest stock updates to give you the best chance of bagging a PlayStation 5 before Christmas.
As we spot any more retailers with PS5 stock, we’ll be sure to add them to the list below. You’ll also find any PS5 bundles here if any are made available at this early stage. We wouldn’t count on it, though. The best you might find is a game like Spider-Man: Miles Morales or Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart included for full price.
Which Stores are Getting PS 5 Stock Soonest?
On Thursday, the console was briefly back in stock on Amazon but users reported technical problems when trying to buy it.
Although Amazon showed it as “in stock”, users who attempted to add it to their basket were shown a message indicating that it was not actually available.
Argos also briefly restocked on Thursday but saw its “small amount” of consoles fly off the shelves.
“Its clear customers are excited for the new PlayStation,” an Argos spokesperson said.

One Minute Review on Playstation 5
We were hoping for great things from the PS5, and Sony’s next-gen console delivers.
Sony has re-imagined the key parts of the experience – from a simpler setup and new well-thought-out user interface to a revolutionary controller and added bonuses for PS Plus members – and the result is a console that we can’t help but be impressed with.
It’s finally out – you can buy PS5 in stores across the US, and also buy PS5 UK consoles too. We’re also rounding up all the future PS5 deals and bundles you can expect so you don’t miss a great deal.
Sure, there are problems with how few first-party games there are at launch – and it would have been nice to see support for previous generations of PlayStation titles, not just PS4 games – but the PlayStation 5 feels like a solid investment nevertheless, and we’re confident that the PS5 experience will improve with age.
You may feel tempted to run out and buy a 4K/120Hz TV with HDMI 2.1 to take full advantage of the console’s peak capabilities, but even without one, you’ll enjoy unbelievably fast load times and a gorgeous new UI.
The PS5 caters to both primed and ready next-gen gamers and tepid PS4 owners looking to dip their toes into the future of gaming – and for the latter, it’s a console that so seamlessly bridges the gap between the last generation and the next that you probably won’t need to boot up your PS4 ever again.
From big upgrades like the super-fast NVMe SSD and powerful GPU that enable higher frame rates and ray tracing to subtle touches like the built-in microphone on the controller that can serve as a quick stand-in for a headset, the PS5 feels like it was built for ease of use as well as pure power.
We’ve yet to get our hands on the PS5 Digital Edition, which we may feel differently about, and we’ve yet to try out some of the PS5’s streaming apps and entertainment functionality, but if you’re still on the fence about buying the PS5, we can wholeheartedly recommend the console as a welcome upgrade over the PS4, and an exciting portal to next-gen gameplay.
