PlayStation 5 will be available directly through Sony today [update: sold out]

Update 5:30 PM ET, April 25: Over an hour later (hopefully, that’s booming for you), the wave of PlayStation 5 hardware sold out. The less expensive digital version sold out first, but we were impressed with how long the PS5 disc version was still available. Hopefully this is just one of many restocking opportunities during the spring.

Sony’s storefront will have a PlayStation 5 console available for purchase starting at 4:30 p.m. ET today, so time is running out before the waiting room turns into a queue for the most sought-after console. We expect the Store will stock both the $499.99 PlayStation 5 version that features a disc drive, as well as the $399.99 digital version that’s missing one. We also expect this restock to sell out just as quickly as the others.

PS5 restocks, while popping up here and there, have been rare compared to buying opportunities for other tech products that were hard to find a few months ago. Things like Nvidia and AMD GPUs are getting easier to find in stock, as are Microsoft’s Xbox Series X and Nintendo Switch OLED consoles. In other words, take this opportunity to get a PS5.
