Where to buy the PS5: Restock updates for Best Buy, Walmart, GameStop, Amazon, Target and more – CNET

The PS5 may have debuted back on Nov. 12, but you’d hardly know it looking at the inventory online and on store shelves. Right now the only consoles you can buy are marked up to obscene levels, on sites like eBay and StockX, often far more than their retail value of $400 or $500 for the different models. The console has been otherwise virtually impossible to find, with at least one person waiting in line for 36 hours to snag one at a California GameStop. 

You’ve probably noticed that there have been a handful of fresh inventory drops at retailers like Walmart and Best Buy in recent weeks. Just this morning, Best Buy was offering both versions of the PS5, as well as a bundle that included the console plus a copy of Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales, but it didn’t take more than about 15 minutes to sell out, even with the retailer dropping inventory in waves. Which means that for the moment, all retailers are sold out again. 

The PS5 is available in two versions: a $500 model with Blu-ray, and an otherwise identical $400 digital-only version without a disc slot. At this point, people are happy to get their hands on either one, but if you don’t have a library of optical discs — for Blu-ray movies, used games or old PS4 games — we recommend you go with the $400 version.
