PS5 restock updates are few and far between right now, which means actually figuring out how to buy a PlayStation 5 isn't easy at all. Gone are the days of popping down to your local retailer or smashing the Buy Now button online, and instead you've got to play an expensive game of Whack-a-Mole. But, we're here to help. We've been monitoring the online retailers and have unearthed some patterns and behaviors that should be of assistance.
That means we usually have some sort of vague idea when the next chance to buy a PS5 will happen, so it's best to just bookmark this page and check back regularly. We've included links to all the major retailers we expect to see with PS5 stock now or in the future, so you'll just be a couple clicks away from bagging Sony's new-gen hardware.

We'd always advise going with stores sticking to the regular prices rather than giving in to the scalpers on online auction sites. Yes, the PS5 is lovely, but it's not worth paying over a grand for one. The only reason we'll show you something over the basic asking price of the PS5 is if has some bundled extras, but as our lonely PS5 bundles page would attest, we'd just concentrate on trying to find the console on its own for now.
