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 rolls into a queue for the most-requested 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.
