How much are you willing to spend for PS5 for Cyber Monday week? $600? $800? $1,000? That’s how much it’ll cost you right now if you go to sites like like eBay and StockX, where resellers are selling new PlayStation 5 at a markup far above its $399 to $499 retail price. The console has been all but impossible to find since its Nov. 12 launch, with at least one person waiting in line for 36 hours to snag one at a California GameStop. If you can’t pay a double premium and can’t wait in line at a mini mall, though, your best option may be to keep watching Twitter: A few retailers, like Walmart and Antonline, have used the social network to keep customers informed about inventory drops. But your other option is to regularly check this page: This is the quick way to check inventory at major online retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon, GameStop and Target.
The PS5 is available in two versions: a $500 model with Blu-ray, and an otherwise identical $400 digital-only version without a disc slot. At this point, people are happy to get their hands on either one, but if you don’t have a library of optical discs — for Blu-ray movies, used games or old PS4 games — we recommend you go with the $400 version.
Right now, there’s no indication of inventory at any of the major retailers, so your chances of scoring a console are not, shall we say, encouraging. But check below to see if the PS5 happens to be in stock at any of these major retailers.
