We're just a few weeks away from the launch of the PS5, and pre-orders have been near-impossible to find at nearly every major retailer. Fortunately, we're here to bring you the latest updates on stock, as well as all of the big stores to bookmark to be ready for when more consoles arrive.
Launching on November 12 in the U.S. and November 19 in most parts of the world, the PS5 is one of the most hotly anticipated product launches in years. It costs $499 for the standard model with a 4K Blu-ray drive and $399 for folks that can live without discs with the PS5 Digital Edition.

Forbes notes that folks in the U.K. could have issues picking up their PS5 in person due to regional lockdown rules.
