Where to buy PS5 — latest PlayStation 5 pre-order updates

(Image credit: Sony)

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.

Even if you did manage to secure a PS5 pre-order, you may want to brace for the worst. Amazon has already notified shoppers that their console may not ship in time for launch due to high demand, and GameStop has emailed certain customers in Europe to note that they could be waiting all the way until 2021 to get their PS5. Forbes notes that folks in the U.K. could have issues picking up their PS5 in person due to regional lockdown rules.

PS5 stock update: October 25

We check every major store daily for the latest updates on stock. As of October 25, most major retailers are out of stock of both the PS5 and PS5 Digital Edition.

If you want to give yourself an extra chance at securing a PS5, Sony and Burger King are running a special promotion that gives you a shot at winning one for free from now through November 22.

While PS5 consoles are gone everywhere, many PS5 accessories are in-stock at select retailers, allowing you to snag an extra DualSense controller or HD Camera to get ready for launch day. You can also pre-order most PS5 games already, including Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon's Souls

We've also started tracking the best Black Friday PS5 deals, as we're already seeing lots of PS5-compatible games and accessories on sale.

Here are the retailers you should keep an eye on for the best chance of snagging your PS5 pre-order. As always, we recommend signing up for alerts at every major retailer to be notified about availability.

Personally, for past console launches, I’ve had good luck buying from Sony directly, as well as Fry’s, although the former could sell out fast, and the latter isn’t primarily a video game retailer.
