Launched back in November of last year, the Playstation 5 has quickly become one of gaming’s hottest commodities. Despite being a massive release the supply of the PS5 hasn’t exactly met the demand for it, with every retailer in Australia frequently selling out of the console.

Here’s what you need to know to bring you up to speed with the PS5, including new updates on where you can buy one.

Update 16/04: Amazon Australia seems to have sold out of stock once again.

Where can you buy a PS5 in Australia?

Isn’t that the million dollar question? Since its launch, we’ve seen stock of the PS5 sporadically pop up at a variety of different retailers. There’s no real telling when a store will have stock, and even when the console does become available again, it’s usually snapped up in minutes.

To help streamline the process, here’s a list of all the places you should be regularly checking for PS5 stock (we’ll update this article as stock becomes available through them).

Just a heads up before you do commit to buying a PS5 – make sure you’re getting the right version. There’s the standard edition, which takes discs and retails at $749.95, and there’s the digital version, which doesn’t take discs and sells for $599.95.
