Launched back in November of 2020, 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. And if you’re looking for a deal for PS5 games and accessories, here’s where you can pick up a few of those.

Who has the PS5 in stock right now? (Update 10/11/22): At the time of writing, JB Hi-Fi, Big W, EB Games, The Gamesmen, The Good Guys, Target and Amazon Australia all have the God of War Ragnarok PS5 bundle in stock. This is literally the most PS5s we’ve ever seen in stock at once, so get amongst it.

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.

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 $799, and there’s the digital version, which doesn’t take discs and sells for $649. The God of War Ragnarok bundle is also a new addition to the lineup, which includes a PS5 console and God of War Ragnarok on PS5.

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).

Is it getting easier to buy a PS5 console?

Almost two years later, it finally does seem to be getting easier to buy a PS5. We’re not at the point yet where you can just walk into a retailer and buy one off the shelf (although you can get lucky at some stores). However, we are seeing stock become available more frequently.

Coming into the holiday season, PS5s are likely to be in demand even more than before, so if you see one available, it’s still a good idea to grab it ASAP.

If you’re looking for other ways to stay on top of PS5 stock, we’ve curated a guide that may help.
