The PlayStation 5 is now available at Best Buy (update: sold out)

Views: 169

Update December 6th, 1:00PM ET: Best Buy has sold out of PlayStation 5 consoles for now. This one came up very suddenly, and sold out just as quickly. We are continuing to monitor further console restocks from Best Buy and other retailers.

If you still haven’t been able to land one of Sony’s next-gen consoles, Best Buy is giving you another shot. The $500 PlayStation 5 with a disc drive is available right now, though, we’ve seen no indication the retailer will restock the PS5 Digital Edition, the $400 configuration of the console that lacks an optical drive.

Unlike some of Best Buy’s console restocks, this one is available to the general public online and not just for its TotalTech subscribers, despite an “exclusive access event” flag. Still, we recommend heading to the link of your choice as quickly as possible to hop in the queue.

PlayStation 5

Sony’s flagship next-gen console, which includes a disc drive, allows you to play both digital and physical games for the PS4 and PS5.

A few must-haves for PS5 owners

If you are lucky enough to land a PS5, there are a few additional accessories and titles we recommend picking up alongside the console, some of which are currently on sale.

Midnight black DualSense controller

The midnight black DualSense controller sports the same hardware as the original — haptic feedback, adaptive triggers, etc. — only with a two-tone design reminiscent of PS2, PS3, and PS4 consoles.

Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

Insomniac Games’ latest adventure in the Ratchet & Clank series is the most fun entry yet. It’s also the first to launch on PS5, and it’s both a showcase for amazing graphics and fast loading speeds.


The latest release from Arcane Studios — the team behind Prey and Dishonored — is a masterpiece in many ways, an open-ended mystery that’s thrilling, action-packed, and just the right amount of weird.

Sony Pulse 3D headset

Sony’s Pulse 3D wireless gaming headset is worth the roughly $100 price tag if you want a wireless model that can let the audio in some PS5-exclusive games shine. It sounds fantastic with titles like Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Demon’s Souls, as well as more recent hits like Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Like the console, this headset has been a little tough to find, but it’s coming back in stock more frequently these days. Sony also released a midnight black version of the headset for $100.

PlayStation Plus card
