Find where to buy PS5 and track PS5 restocks

Just seeking where to buy a PS5 is far from simple, as locating a retailer with one of Sony's new game consoles in stock is 2021's biggest consumer hurdle so far. Currently, most of the standard $499 PS5 and $399 PS5 Digital Edition are sold out across the U.S. and when stock does drop it sells out in mere moments.

However, PS5 restocks have started to speed up this year. You just need to be prepared to move fast and it's a good idea to be signed up to stock alerts and ensure you have an account with the major retailers we've listed below. Just bear in mind that the PS5 doesn't have a huge amount of new games to play on it yet, so if you can hold off buying for a while you might find this whole process less frustrating.

Make sure to keep this page bookmarked and refreshed to have the best chance at finding where to buy a PS5.

Where to buy PS5: Latest stock updates, who to follow

There does seem to be some PS5 stock relief on the way, with Digitimes reporting that Sony is planning to ship between 16.8 million and 18 million PS5 units in 2021. This is due to an increase in the units' supply stream. Sony initially shipped 3.4 million PlayStation 5 units in its first month of availability.

The Sony Twitter account is worth following so you can get notifications about the next batches of available PS5 units. We also recommend following Twitter account such as @PlayStationHNL, which is often first to have the latest updates on availability. Availability can also be regional, as Walmart and EBGames in Canada recently had stock.

If you're struggling to find any PS5 stock anywhere, don't give up hope. Sony recently tweeted that it's working to get more PS5 consoles ready for the end of the year.

"Demand for PS5 is unprecedented, so we wanted to confirm that more PS5 inventory will be coming to retailers before the end of the year - please stay in touch with your local retailers," said Sony.

If you do manage to get a PS5, it's possible that it could be stolen before it even reaches your door. Many Amazon PS5 customers have claimed that their shipments have gone missing, and Amazon U.K. has pledged to replace those units. And the situation seems to be getting worse with thieves even stealing the Sony consoles from lorries as they're being delivered to retailers.
