GameStop has announced that a "very limited number" of PS5 units will be available to order through its website (opens in new tab) on Wednesday night. If you haven't had the chance to get in a PS5 pre-order, this could be your last chance to secure your console before it launches Thursday, November 12.
Of course, PS5s are in short supply pretty much across the board, and running from store to store on launch day will prove a fruitless affair. When GameStop announced that it would have a small number of Xbox Series X units for sale online, it also mentioned that there would be limited availability in-store on launch day. The same can't be said for PS5, as Sony has previously confirmed that its next-gen launch would be online only.
